Jada Pinkett-Smith

Joey King

After chopping her hair short for Hulu’s The Act, King transitioned from buzz cut to pixie perfection effortlessly. 

Katy Perry

Maria Borges

Rowan Blanchard

“Chopped all my hair off happy 2019,” Blanchard declared on her Instagram Stories when debuting her new look.

Ruby Rose

If you look up ‘cool pixie’ cut no one else but Aussie gem Ruby Rose will appear.

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson has kept her hair short for over three years now and it doesn’t look like she’ll be going back to long locks anytime soon.

Teyana Taylor

Tryana Taylor is known for her amazing dancing skills, her abs, and her perfect choppy pixie cut.

Tyra Banks

The supermodel styled her strands to the front creating a fun faux hawk.

Zoe Kravitz

The coolest of all cool-girls Zoe Kravitz has rocked the pixie for sometime now—and is the ultimate inspiration.

Cara Delevingne

The model took the big chop in April 2017 and has been accessorising like no one else ever since.

If there’s one person who can rock every single hairstyle on the planet, it’s Rihanna. The singer, know for changing her hairstyles like her clothes, debuted a new look this week while heading to dinner at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica. In place of the long braids, long hair, and long mullet she’s been cycling through the past few weeks, she has a brand-new, super-short pixie cut.

This isn’t Rihanna’s first time having a pixie cut. The singer went short before back in 2012 (debuted at the 2012 VMAs), and had everyone saying “Short hair, don’t care!”
Rihanna actually spoke to Sarah Paulson for Interview in June 2019 about how she always wanted short hair. Paulson asked Rihanna, “What was it like for your mom when you started dressing for videos?”

She responded, “The only thing my mom didn’t let me do was dye my hair black and cut it short. I’d wanted to do that since I was 14 and she was like, ‘No, not having it.’ So instead, I tried putting on burgundy extensions and I got sent home from school. They told me to either take them out or dye it dark. I left school and went to town to buy some hairspray and spray them dark brown. I was like, ‘I spent $70 on these extensions! I’m going to make them work.’”

This updated version of the cut appears to be even shorter all around, with wispier, piece-y bangs up front, something our bangs can only aspire to be.

If you too are thinking of trimming your mullet’s party tail and going the completely cropped route, we’ve got a bunch of inspo for you to take to the hairdresser. Check it out above.
