Short hairstyles are having a moment. Gone are the times when long hair ruled the red carpet, now it's about short hair cuts on your favourite A-list women. We're talking chic bobs (à la Rose Byrne), cool crops (see Audrey Tautou), the bold quiff (modelled by Anne Hathaway) and the mid-length 'do (best worn by the likes of Alexa Chung).
Not only is a new season the perfect time to reinvent your hair, your trip to the hairdressers just got even easier with our round-up of the best short styles on the beauty block. Short hairstyles, for women, can be a bit daunting but they've got the A-list stamp of approval in a big way.
As proved by some of the coolest women in Hollywood, ditching longer locks and going for that short haircut is a classy and undeniably stylish way to update your look. It's also a great excuse to get rid of any split ends you've been harbouring. Don't be put off by the prospect of growing it out. As Jennifer Lawrence shows, each length keeps getting better and better.
If you're worried it'll limit your hairstyles, just look to the ever-changing head of Rita Ora for hairstyles for short hair inspo.
