Short Cuts We Love


There is nothing like a short, sassy cut to freshen up any drab look. Short styles make such a statement that it’s no wonder we’ve seen some of our favorites celebrities take the big chop. However a funky cut is not for the meek. It provides a spectacular look to the wearer and bodes a certain amount of confidence, especially living in a society where down-to-there tresses are coveted.

No matter the reasoning behind the transition, own your new style with a crazy amount of coolness and be proud! If you’re thinking of taking a hair risk and swapping out your long locks for a cropped do, here are a few of our favorite cuts we love.

Eva Marcille

Whether platinum blonde or honey brown, Eva has mastered the art of taking a bold cut and making it her own. Eva exudes the right amount of confidence and sassiness for this eye-popping style.

Janet Jackson

While long locks were mostly her signature look, she shocked us all when she was spotted rocking a new, close cropped style. Let’s just say she has our vote on this one.

Malinda Williams

The lovable actress has had her soft, trendy cut for as long as we can remember, but we wouldn’t want it any other way. She totally rocks the charming do’ effortlessly.

Shaunie O’Neal

The television producer and mom of five keeps her look fresh with a feisty style and the occasional highlights.


Affectionately referred to as “a pitbull in a skirt” gives us quite the opposite rocking this medium bob. Add a bit of layers and color and you have a hot look that will warrant a second look.

Nicole Ari Parker

Always one to stand apart with her quirky style, Nicole Ari Parker’s vibrant cut highlights her facial features perfectly. Not to mention she always seems to look amazingly comfortable with the fun style.

    All of these are nice. You can’t forget Halle and Rihanna, Although I’m in the process of growing my hair back out, I think I will wear it short again for awhile, since it is easy for me to maintain.

    I agree with MissRae & G. Spice.

    I don’t know how you talk about short hair cuts and don’t include Halle Berry and Nia Long.

    Short hair never looked so good, than on these 2 women.

    Eve’s hair look nice but for some reason I liked it better when she had it shorter back when she first came out in 99.
