If you’ve got long hair and have wondered what it might be like to go short, this style is for you! Believe it or not, this is a long hairstyle inventively tied back to create a shorter effect, with the top all twisted to give a piece-y, edgy look. It shows a strong way to wear hair to give the impression of a short cut. We love the carefree texture on top, which lifts up the cheekbones and chin. The color is a luscious chocolate milky brown, with golden highlights frolicking around the face.

Something of a hair icon, Michelle Williams is the poster girl for pixie cuts. Her artful, elegant razor-crop is great for her because the lack of length exposes and accentuates her strong and pretty features, while the head-hugging curvature and softly separated texture gives it a sexy, womanly quality. Now, however, she is working on growing it out; while she does, she’s showing us how versatile a shorter shape can be, even in the regrow stage. Shown here on the OZ: The Great & Powerful promotional tour, she’s used the extra length to create a teased crown, which gives her style elevation, and the sensibility of a vintage sixties style.
