... Because, hair, guys! It takes so long to grow, and then along comes a fresh cut that makes us question all those Silica supplements we so strictly swallowed. We might not be ready to give this a go ourselves, so (for now) we'll just admire the gals who are game. Stepping away from the safer, non-committal trend of yesteryear (read: lobs or shags) it seems everyone is taking a cut and going (seriously) blonde. We'll call it, Michelle Williams-ing ourselves. Celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Scarlett Johansson and Cara Delevingne are taking her lead with the surprisingly versatile 'do - going all Michelle with a soft, angelic finish, or giving it some styling grit with more of an androgynous look. 


When questioned by People Magazine about her new hairdo, Katy Perry said “I feel like there’s a new wave, a new authentic vibe coming in and I think this matches. I want to redefine what it means to be feminine.” She later went on to explain how Scarlett Johansson and Miley Cyrus inspired her blonde look.

Cara Delevingne showed off her new hair as she arrived in Paris on March 4th. Her silvery-white platinum blonde chop was paired with barely-there makeup making her green eyes pop.  


Never one to conform, Kristen Stewart to the trend to new heights. Or not, as it goes. The former brunette shocked fans when she debut her shaved blonde hair at the premiere of her new film, Personal Shopper, in Los Angeles. The cut of all cuts compliments her I-barely-tried-but-damn-I'm-bangin' aesthetic. 


While we're not sure too many of us regular folk will be screen grabbing Stewart's 'do for our stylist, this short icy crop trend is definitely a fresh look we can endorse.  

Would you go the big chop? Have you? Do you miss long locks or loving the low-maintenance 'do?
