With stylist at their beck and call and disposable incomes to pull hair swithcheroos whenever they’re good and ready, celebs change hairstyles quicker than models change clothes. And although long strands tend to bring out our favorite stars’ inner bombshell, clean cropped ‘dos are a much more attractive option for some. Here are 10 leading ladies that we prefer with short hair…
1. Kelly Rowland
If Miss Kelly ain’t the poster child for pixie cut cuties, then who else is? Sure the singer can rock longer locks, but for a while there we were worried about the slew of bad lace front wigs that we practically begged her to come back to the short side. A face like hers needs to be seen!
2. Toni Braxton
It’s not so much that Toni doesn’t look sizzling hot with waist length hair, it’s just that we know her best with a close crop. Plus look at those cheekbones. They’re dying to be seen!
3. Solange Knowles
We love our Sol Angel, but wouldn’t you agree it’s like she came to life when she chopped off her tresses in exchange for a TWA? Her outfits and makeup definitely popped more and the singer/DJ definitely started receiving more accolades for her style after the cut.
4. Chrisette Michelle
Obviously she has the same buttery smooth soulful voice whether short or long, but we definitely connect more with the singer’s close coils and spicy flipped short ‘dos.
5. Selita Ebanks
Gosh, this woman is beautiful. She could shave her head like G.I. Jane or rock a big Nicki Minaj wig and she’d still be a hot chick, but we definitely like our Selitta short.
The woman of many, many hairstyles and yet we still love the way a boy cut looks on the Bajan popstar.
7. Keri Hilson
Though the brunt of many jokes around the internet, there’s no denying that this pretty girl rocks better with short hair.
8. NeNe Leakes
Long hair seems to hide that fiery personality of Linnethia’s. With her baby doll eyes and fierce brows, we can’t see this Real Housewife of Atlanta any other way but short.
9. Kandi Burruss
It’s not that we hate Kandi with flowing tresses, it’s just that the singer/songwriter definitely rocks ear length and shorter looks like no other.
10. Amber Rose
They say “long hair don’t care”, but when it comes to Amber, it’s “no hair don’t care”. The brazen beauty was born for a buzz-cut! All long hair does is block all her fierceness.
StyleBlazers, you agree? Should these celebs ditch the weave and embrace the cropped?
