Sassy Short Haircuts

When Hayden Panettiere chopped off her hair, we gasped — it was incredibly daring for Hollywood. But of course, she wasn’t the first (or the last) star to take the plunge.

What we love: Nothing shows off a beautiful face more than a cropped cut, plus the quick styling time is a busy girl’s dream. But our favorite thing is that it takes major guts to go this short — so if you do it, you’re basically telling the world just how ballsy you really are.

Try it at home: We definitely don’t recommend doing a dramatic haircut yourself, so your first step is to head to a salon for the cut. (If your hair is long enough, we highly suggest donating it to Locks of Love, it’s such a great way to contribute.)

Once you’ve got the look, play around with different styling methods — go for slick and sleek, tousled bedhead and try fun hair accessories — to keep your haircut from being one-note.
