Irina Shayk Debuted a Dramatically Shorter Hairstyle and We're Into It

So you've decided to go for a short hairstyle. Yep, you've finally decided to take the plunge. But which crop are you going to choose? A great place to look for short-hair inspiration is your favourite short-haired A-listers. Once you've deciphered which short haircut you love and which is likely to suit your face shape and hair texture, you can take a picture to your hairdresser so you don't end up in a Friends Dudley/Demi Moore situation. In the hair world, the old adage "a picture is worth a thousand words" is spot on.

There is a short hairstyle of dreams for everyone, and some of our favourite celebrities prove it. Maybe it's a pixie crop as worn by Scarlett Johansson (who, if you remember, once had long hair, too) or something closer, such as Lupita Nyong'o's 'do. Perhaps it's a bob as seen on Jourdan Dunn, Rihanna and Michelle Williams, who have all rocked the look without ever looking like a "soccer mom." Or maybe (just maybe) you're keen to pull a K.Stew and go for a buzz cut. There are so many short hairstyles and haircut ideas to draw on. And of course, short hair can be incredibly versatile; you can play with texture, partings, accessories and even add in braids to mix up your style from day to day.
