Think of it as the bombshell pixie: Voluminous, layered and plenty sexy. To get Hough’s look for yourself, ask your stylist for a short cut with tapered sides and extra-long bangs that start at the back of the head. (Bonus points for extra-glossy color.)

People magazine's Most Beautiful person debuted this Grace Jones-inspired crop at a recent awards show. Delicately sculpted details and a rounded silhouette add femininity to the edgy look.

For an ultra-sleek 'do like Woodley's, mix a dab of shine serum with a dab of gel in the palm of your hand and distribute through damp hair; blow-dry with a nozzle attachment until smooth and 90 percent dry. Create a deep side part and, using a fine-tooth comb, comb into place and pin behind opposite ear.

To achieve touchable volume like Lawrence, work mousse through damp hair and dry upside down with a nozzle attachment. Flip head upright and use a small brush to smooth hair up and away from your face for a halo effect. Mist with firm-hold hairspray.

Anne Hathaway

Smitten with Hathaway’s elegant, French-inspired style? Use an inch-barrel curling iron to curl sections up and away from your face, dragging the iron as you work for longer waves. Smooth with a boar-bristle brush.

Charlize Theron

Somewhere between a pixie and a bob, Charlize’s new cut manages to look soft and sculptural at the same time. Ask your cutter for a long, smooth short cut with minimal layering, sideswept bangs and a deep side part, then style with a flatiron and high-shine hairspray.

Rita Ora

To mimic Ora's edgy coiffure, start with day-old (or even two-days old!) hair. Work a powder dry shampoo through the crown, brushing between applications. Then, using firm-hold hairspray and a teasing comb, tease front sections upward and smooth the sides behind your ears.

Maggie Gyllenhaal

Recreate Gyllenhaal's spiky, free-spirited pixie by working mousse into damp hair and blow-drying with a nozzle, using only your hands to scrunch and tousle sections in different directions.

Michelle Williams

The key to Williams's bedhead bob: parting shiny, flat-ironed hair using your hands only — no brushes or combs allowed.

Halle Berry

Short hair icon Berry recently rocked this edgy shag. For a similar look, ask your stylist for a choppy, front-swept cut with razored ends, and style it with one of the new dry texturizing sprays on the market.
