This week we see lots of pixies and short cuts on celebrities. It seems this cute do, that was made popular in the 1960’s by supermodel Twiggy, is as strong as ever. During the years the Pixie has evolved into one of the easiest to care for styles that looks good on almost all women. Long locks are still popular and celebrities are continually on the edge of fashion. Check out this week’s finds and see if you have what it takes to rock celebrity hair.

British actress Carey Mulligan, who starred in the recent movie Never Let Me Go, is shown here with a simple Pixie accented with a cute hair band. Celebrity stylist Jonathan Joseph used the blow dryer with a nozzle attachment and directed the air flow downwards on the nape, crown and sides.

Jacinta Lal was recently crowned Miss IndiaNZ and her blonde hair and blue eyes have stirred controversy over the 21 year old beauty not being “Indian enough looking.” Organizer Dharmesh Parikh defends the decision by explaining the this was a New Zealand beauty pageant and the Miss Lal has Indian heritage since her mother is part Indian. No matter how you feel about her title, you have to admit she is a lovely young woman who has beautiful long curly hair. Seen here with a fellow runner-up, both young ladies exhibit grace and poise.
Not to be one to be left out of the spotlight, Lady Gaga had her hair cut short into a chin length bob for her upcoming video, Alejandro. Celebrity stylist Eugene Souleiman told Behind the Chair that he felt it was better for Lady Gaga’s hair to be cut short since she wears wigs most of the time. He further explains that his decision was based on the fact that she beaches her hair and it has a curly and coarse texture. Some form of the bob has been popular since the Roaring Twenties and your stylist can shape one that is just right for you.
Mad Men star Christina Hendrix is known not only for her “real woman” curves but for her ravishing red hair. Seen here at the Golden Globe Awards, Ms Hendrix is campaigning for fashion magazines to use more realistically sized models and to stop airbrushing models to look thinner. With her long red locks, she is truly a stunning example of beauty.
