- 1In mid-August of 2012, Miley Cyrus shocked the world when she debuted a *very* different haircut. Gone were Miley's signature flowing, brown locks. Cyrus basically chopped it all off, opting for a sleek, platinum blonde, pixie-style cut. Cyrus stunned her millions of Twitter followers by posting a photo of the big re-"do," saying she was "ready for a change." That she was. Fans, understandably, had mixed reactions, but Miley said she was thrilled with her short new cropped hair, saying she'd "Never felt more me in my whole life."
- 2Jennifer Lopez is known for her trademark long locks. Her incredible mane is always shiny, bouncy and totally healthy-looking, and the color is always flattering. J-Lo wears her hair straight at times, but during her concert tour in 2012 she began wearing great, natural curls.
In June of 2012, Lopez shocked when she emerged (with boyfriend Casper Smart) in Santiago, Chile, sporting a much shorter 'do. Her hair was noticeably shorter, almost shoulder-length and very curly -- almost a bob of sorts. Did she get a cut or simply have extensions removed? Is it a wig? Only J-Lo knows, but the bouncy, flirty, shorter look definitely flatters.
Kate Middleton: The Duchess of CambridgeKate Middleton, aka the Duchess of Cambridge, is known for her shiny, luxurious, long locks. Her polished waves look healthy and virtually effortless. Women around the globe are flocking to hairdressers, asking for Kate's gorgeous look, which was hot in 2011 and remains hot well into 2012.
Basically, Kate's look is natural and easy-going - easy breezy! Getting this particular hairstyle might be difficult if you've got shorter locks (waiting for hair to grow out can take forever), but if you already have long locks, just be sure to condition hair for extra bounce and use a shining serum for a super glossy mane! Ask your hairdresser to cut your hair in long layers, adding in a little chin-length fringe. The longer layers give hair extra movement.
- 4The Academy Award-winning actress rocked the wavy look in the spring of 2012 with her short-medium length hair. Charlize Theron's simple waves frame her kind face to create a softer look.
For Charlize Theron's look, curl medium-length hair with a small-barrel curling iron in one-inch sections to create a wavy look. Alternately, for already curly hair, use a hair dryer with a diffuser and some curling hair product to achieve the same look.
- 5Showing fans that less can be more, "Harry Potter" star Emma Watson's short pixie look has been turning heads. Similar to the cut worn by blonde beauty Michelle Williams, Emma Watson has cropped her red hair to bring a mature level of sophistication to her look.
Creating the pixie look like Emma Watson is as simple as cutting hair down to a matter of inches. From then, day-to-day styling is super easy. Allow straight hair to air dry for a effortless look or use a bit of styling product and blow dry to add texture and volume.
