Leigh+Lezark+Short+Hairstyles+Short+Straight+IjB-ZwhW5fql

Leigh Lezark, DJ and model, mixes spinning vinyl with strutting stuff on runways, or for magazines like Nylon and Vogue. Ergo, she’s on the vanguard of music and fashion, which makes her a role model for many of the young, hip and chic. Not a surprise then, that she’s capturing attention for this Twiggy-terrific, short style. An oh-so-cute pixie cut that fits in with the sixties trend currently sparking, the head-hugging curvature and the few wispy bits behind the ears help to keep it feminine, flirty, fun. The short style exposes all the wonderful features in Leigh’s pretty face, while the angled side-part, going down and across in the perfect way, encourages focus on her beguiling eyes.

Featured on this month’s Seventeen cover is young Hollywood actress, Ashley Benson. Since her acting debut in 1999, Benson has mostly been typecast as a popular pretty girl due to her all-American looks and long blonde hair. With the release of director Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers, the actress deviated from her typecast and played a rebellious college student wreaking havoc over the vernal equinox. For the role, Benson wore her attention-grabbing, long popular-girl hair in a cropped and wavy style. Her new ‘do emphasized her character’s flirty sex kitten aesthetic. We love the flirty look and it will be interesting to see if her new style can support Benson’s transition in to a sophisticated independent film star.

English rose, Sienna Miller, hasn’t worn a fringe for a while, so her arrival at the Tribeca Film Festival’s Vanity Fair party in wispy new bangs had the paparazzi flashing their stuff. Worn in the disheveled fashion of the shabby chic, her undone, half-up, half-down hairstyle drapes all around her cheekbones and chin, lips and eyes, while the multi-dimensional –– almost dirty –– blonde color tone creates the perfect, beguiling contrast for her piercing baby blues.
