Recently I had the chop.

Whilst not everyone thinks my hair looks amazing (on more than one occasion I have heard ‘don’t worry it’ll grow back!’ ), I am super happy with my new locks, and there are plenty of celebrities who are giving me the confidence to rock the short and sweet do.

Check out ten celebrities who have braved the chop… Some hot and some… um, we will let you make up your own mind.

Hilary Duff

Recently Hilary took to social media to show off her new “lob” (long bob). Debuting her new locks on Instagram, Hil’s looks confident and gorgeous with her edgy and textured blonde lob.

Jessica Alba

Jess has had so many different hair styles over the years, and doesn’t she look fab with her softly layered short hair?  The natural looking highlights add some personality to this style, and the side part totally suits her oval face shape. What a stunner.

Jennifer Lawrence

J-Law appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this month, and joked when one of her hair extensions fell out and she decided to gracefully wear it on her face. Whilst we did get a laugh out of it, she highlighted how damn hard it is if you decide to grow your hair out. Nevertheless, she is looking gorgeous of late and has been mixing up her cropped hair style by curling it and letting it fall loosely around her face.


Kaley Cuoco

Kaley cuoco from The Big Bang Theory is the latest celebrity to get the pixie cut. She debuted her new haircut on Instagram last week, sporting a textured style made so famous by stars like Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy. Kaley said on Instagram,

“Thank you @clsymonds for bringing out my inner Peter Pan #byronbeverlyhills #justcutitoff,”

Olivia Palermo

Olivia’s golden, caramel coloured short hair is highlighted to pure perfection. You can totally tell that Olivia has a strict regime when it comes to keeping her gorgeous hair in shape, she recently told Vogue,

“I took a year and a half off from processing it and just started back up again recently. I trim it once every other month, or so, in an attempt to keep it really, really healthy.”

Kylie Jenner

Kylie is quickly establishing herself as one of the rebellious Kardashians!  She dyed her hair electric blue just in time for big sister Kim’s wedding. What a perfect gift for Kimye!

Her Mum Kris wasn’t happy about the edgy new hair style, Kylie told E! “They’re all really pissed. My Mum was like ‘you look like a skittle’. I was like ‘I’m gonna have this for two years now that you said that’.

I’m unsure if the 16-year-old rebel will keep her blue locks for two years, but Kim’s wedding snaps will certainly last her for a life time. Regrets may just be on the upcoming agenda for this teen.

Katy Perry 

Another celebrity is rocking the rainbow hair at the moment.

Katy Perry has revealed her new look, saying “I’ve wanted to go slime green for a long time. It’s spring time and I think it’s time to freshen up my look.”

“I’m really excited about slime green, but I hope my hair doesn’t fall out”

We hope so too Katy.

In the mean time, Katy will be seen all over the world sporting her green locks on the cover of the Cosmopolitan for their global July issue.

Queen Bey has had so many different styles throughout her career – but she rocks this super cool and tough honey coloured pixie haircut. She looks fierce, powerful and super sexy. Let’s be honest though she would look smoking hot completely bald too.
