WHY WE LOVE IT: It's a bold stylewith soft edges. Layers around the ears and a slightly longer length at the crown give it a more feminine feel than a traditional pixie.
WORKS BEST FOR: Fine or slightly wavy hair. "Thick, curly hair gets bulky when it's this short," warns L.A. hair-stylist Adir Abergel. Consider your features as well: Short hair flatters delicate ones.
MAKE IT YOUR OWN: To balance out a long face, "keep volume on the sides," says Anh Co Tran, who cut Ginnifer Goodwin's hair. To lengthen a square or round face, layers should be longer across the forehead.
