Short, Curly Celebrity Hairstyles We Love
This year has seen some dramatic hair transformations, and many celebs have reworked their hair into pixies, bobs, and lobs. These stars have also been rocking some gorgeously textured tresses—Taylor Swift swapped her pin-straight style for waves that are reminiscent of her early days on country radio and Jennifer Lawrence perfected the look of beachy waves (above). Short hairstyles can range from the demure (like Rose Byrne’s 1950s curls) to the daring (like Rita Ora’s grittier tousled locks)—there's no shortage of celebrity makeover ideas for cropped, curly 'dos.
