Making the Cut1 of 10
By Brienne Walsh
Thinking of chopping off your hair in time for summer? Whether you prefer Jennifer Lawrence's wavy bob or Halle Berry's side-swept crop, check out what to ask for and how to style these nine short, stylish celeb-inspired haircuts.
Making Waves2 of 10
What to ask for: If you have wavy hair like Charlize Theron, celebrity hairstylist Sascha Breuer suggests asking your stylist not to cut it too short on the sides or in the front. That way, your hair will "look soft and playful," he says, rather than severe.
How to style: Celebrity hairstylist Philippe Polo of Twist By Oliver Salon says that Theron gets her voluminous look by blow-drying her hair with a medium round brush. To pump up the volume, spritz some hairspray at the roots before drying.
Fringe Benefits3 of 10
What to ask for: Halle Berry's short crop, which is still long on the sides and in the back, is a great way to avoid what Breuer calls the "mushroom look." Ask your stylist for bangs that end at the top of your eyebrows to copy Berry's smooth, side-swept look.
How to style: "Blow-dry with your fingers, removing most of the kinks and going over the front with a one-inch flat iron," says Polo. "Keep your hair feeling soft and non-damaged from heating tools by using an intensive hydrating mask, especially in the hot summer months."
Long & Short Of It4 of 10
What to ask for: For a longer, tousled bob like Jennifer Lawrence's, ask to keep the ends long and wispy to avoid shorter strands forming a pyramid around your head.
How to style: "Longer strands like Lawrence's are easier to style," says Polo. For formal events, opt for slicking it back, and to look more youthful, try blow-drying it forward.
Smooth Operator5 of 10
What to ask for: Smooth pixie cuts like Anne Hathaway's work best with oval, square and heart-shaped faces. "If you have straight hair, which is an easier canvas to work with, don't be afraid to go as short as Anne," says Breuer. Don't have straight hair? This look will require a little more maintenance.
How to style: To get Hathaway's trendy deep side part, Polo recommends choosing your part, then blow-drying it stick straight with a round brush. Complete the look by using a wax or shine pomade to smooth down flyaways and polish the style.
Great Lengths6 of 10
What to ask for: Shailene Woodley's hairstyle is a textured look that benefits from varied color. To get the actress's playful length, ask your stylist to keep your strands longer on the top and shorter on the bottom.
How to style: If you have straight hair, this look is easy to work with: "Add a little gel to your hair, and separate the strands with your fingers," says Polo. The result? A casual, bohemian-inspired style.
Pixie Perfect7 of 10
What to ask for: If you have thick hair, avoid short sides, which will grow out looking bristly. Instead, follow Audrey Tatou's lead and keep your locks the same length throughout for a charming pixie cut.
How to style: "This look is very low-maintenance," says Polo. "Just blow-dry forward with your fingers and finish with some pomade for definition."
Caught in the Middle8 of 10
What to ask for: Cate Blanchett's hair is right at the point where short hair becomes mid-length. It's a great look if you're growing your hair out—or if you simply want to experiment before going even shorter.
How to style: Polo says Blanchett probably used hot rollers to give her look a lift from the roots, then worked a light pomade through the hair to separate the ends and add some beachy texture.
Cutting Edge9 of 10
What to ask for: If you're feeling adventurous enough to try Mara's edgy look, ask your stylist to shave the underside of your hair below a deep side part, which you can style to either cover or expose the short section. A less daring option? Request a short bob with wispy layers.
How to style: To style the look, Polo recommends slicking back the side of your hair below a deep side part. Then, curl it slightly with a medium curling iron and finish with a little hairspray or shine spray on top.
Short Order10 of 10
What to ask for: If you're letting your hair go natural like Lupita Nyong'o's, Breuer recommends going to a stylist who specializes in afros.
How to style: "This look is more about cut and shape than style," says Polo. To keep the hair from looking brittle, he recommends applying a moisturizing cream from the roots.
