Short hairstyles are having a moment. Gone are the times when long hair ruled the red carpet, now it's about 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 summer the perfect time to reinvent your hair, your trip to the hairdressers just got even easier with our round-up of the best short 'dos on the beauty block.
As proved by some of the coolest women in Hollywood, ditching longer locks 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.
Trust us, beautiful hair doesn't have to mean tresses down to your knees. Still not convinced? Check out InStyle's edit of the best celebrity short hairstyles and let us change your mind...
