CATE BLANCHETT'S STYLE: A longish pixie shorn tightly on the sides with cheekbone length hair on top.
WHAT MAKES IT HOT: “This is a classic haircut, but it can be styled so many different ways,” says Townsend. The deep side part gives the pixie an understated elegance; a dab of mousse scrunched into damp strands could take the crop in a mod, ’60s direction.
WHO IT WORKS FOR: According to Townsend, a short cut is a great option for someone looking to lose brittle, damaged hair. “It’s also a perfect way to show off a long, graceful neck like Cate’s,” he says.
