From Kim Kardashian’s sleek lob to Ruby Rose’s rock and roll pixie cut, short hair is here and it’s having a moment.

“Having short hair is fun and you should try it at least once,” hairdresser Anthony Nader told 9Style.

We have all your style inspiration needs sorted with our pick of the 10 chicest, short hairstyles.

The Pixie Plunge

Australian model and Orange is the New Black actress Ruby Rose is the current poster girl for short hair.

The Urban Decay beauty muse has rocked just about every different short style around, but her signature pixie cut remains our favourite look.

Expect to admit your hairdresser into your inner circle if you plan on maintaining the perfect pixie cut. “When you have a short crop you need to commit to your hairdresser every say 4-6 weeks so its kept razor sharp,” says Anthony.

The Bold Buzzcut

Kristen Stewart is not afraid of a dramatic hair transformation and her bright blonde buzzcut is a major hair move.

Warning: As much as we would love to look as bad ass as Kristen, it’s important to know if your face shape is suited to a buzzcut before you commit.

“Be aware of bone structure that appears to be angular, meaning square or rectangle as this will only highlight a fuller jaw line and neckline,” says Anthony.

The Compromise Cut

Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale’s chin-length bob cut is a perfect happy medium for those who aren’t ready to say goodbye to their luscious locks just yet.

“Keep some fun up top so you can create some soft texture and be able to push the hair into different hairstyles,” says Anthony.

The Lob aka ‘Long Bob’

Just when we thought that Kim Kardashian West was staying faithful to her favored long hair extensions again, she managed to beat us at our own game debuting a new sleek, lob hairstyle in March.

The Hot Mess

House of Cards actress Kate Mara’s blonde messy bob cut is the perfect hairstyle for those who are wanting a shorter hairdo that retains a more effortless and carefree feel.

The Power Chop

Leave it to longtime hair icon Jennifer Lopez to opt for a shoulder-length haircut that is both feminine and powerful to make a statement.

This cut has style status in spades and doesn’t take too much off your hair length.

“The beauty of having longer strands is you can get away with having an off day as you can twist it up into a high top knot or a cool loose braid,” says Anthony.

The Risky Business Cut

Cara Delevingne’s chic new lilac-coloured pixiecut is definitely a hair risk and totally throws the rule book out the window, but experimenting with your hair is half the fun of embracing a new look.

“The beauty about going short is that you can always style your hair differently which I think is fun and it also gives you a chance to play around with your wardrobe,” says Anthony.

The Rule Breaker

When pop star Katy Perry says you’re the reason she cut her hair short then you know you must be doing something right.

Scarlett Johansson’s bold, edgy and uber stylish undercut, which is shaved on both sides of the head with the middle section left long, is one of the most desired haircuts among the more adventurous members of the A-list.

The Posh Cut

Victoria Beckham has certainly made some wrong moves when it comes to her hairstyles in the past (hello multi-coloured hair extensions), but she seems to have gotten it right with her classy lob haircut that still allows for hair to be styled into loose, beachy waves.

“If your wanting texture and volume opt for a product like a soft paste or a soft clay that isn’t too dry so you can define your hair’s texture,” says Anthony.

The Metamorphosis Cut

In the wake of her split from boyfriend Orlando Bloom, Katy Perry decided that a fresh new cut was what she needed to turn a new leaf and with her hair continually getting shorter and shorter she hasn’t looked back since.

From her balayage undercut to her blonde buzzcut, it seems that Katy has been converted to short hair for life.

Anthony Nader splashes out on who are the Met Gala 2014 Ball Red Carpet Hair Winners in vogue.com.au

The hair looks that turned up on the red carpet for the Met Ball’s 2014 gala, in celebration of couturier Charles James, were in styles as varied as the gowns being celebrated. Here we profile our favourites and tell you how to re-create key looks.

Hair down

Red carpet waves are a consistently elegant look and were embraced by Dree Hemingway, Georgia May Jagger and Riley Keough. If you’re recreating the look for a special occasion be prepared to touch up throughout the night, as you would your makeup. Hair authority Anthony Nader says he advices clients to take a travel size hair spray in their clutch for the night. “When needed they can give any nasty flyaways a once over in the powder room.”

For Dree Hemingway’s Hollywood ringlets Nader says:

1. On damp hair squeeze a good size tennis ball size of firm hold foam into your palms and work through your hair from roots to ends, rake through and shake dry 80% with your hairdryer.

2. Create a deep side part then take four equal sections. Take three-inch sections starting from the nape area with your large round bristle brush and stretch sections upwards all the way up to the crown area. Do the same with the front sections.

3. Using velvet hot rollers, take horizontal sections parallel to your part line and wind the rollers under from top to nape area. Let them set and cool for longevity.

4. Once cool, unravel the rollers and brush the curls to create volume. Give hair a once over with hairspray.

Soft wave

A romantic take on glamour in the form of soft waves was favoured by Kim Kardashian, Gisele Bünchden and Victoria Beckham.

Short hair

A swathe of celebrities have gotten the chop of late and worked their shorter strands into elegant styles for the Met red carpet. Oscar Oscar master stylist Jacky Chan says the important thing to remember is to choose a complementary style. “Hair always needs to complement the dress and styling. If the dress is romantic and feminine, waves and pincurls always look beautiful and elegant, or if the dress is modern and structured sleek styling is best,” says Chan. His top tip? “Less is more with shorter styles.”

Deep side part

Lily Cole, Cara Delevingne and Emily Cole chose the flattering effect of a deep side part and waves.


Kristin Stewart and Joan Smalls chose to plait their tresses for a fresh take on red carpet dressing.
