Let Alia Bhatt & 7 Other Celebrities Inspire You To Cut Your Hair Short

By  | 

‘Short hair, don’t care’ is a term I’ve been loving ever since I made the cut. For a girl with waist-length hair to go shoulder level is something that takes a lot of courage, if you ask me.

So when my hairstylist cut off about 7 long inches, I was both exhilarated and mortified. But a couple of months in, I can’t imagine going long again.

Not only is short hair easier to manage — just think of all the time you save washing it — it’s even easier to style. I spend half the time with my hot tools and even lesser time doing an updo.

If you’re still not convinced, we rounded up a bunch of celebrities who, IMO, look so much better with short hair!

Keep scrolling and let these ladies inspire you to make the cut. And of course, share your short hair selfies with us!


1. Alia Bhatt

A lot of people are of the opinion that curly hair is meant to be left long. Well, I hope Alia Bhatt’s do proves them wrong! Short and scrunched up is a great way to go, especially when it’s hot outside.


2. Sonakshi Sinha

If you’re afraid to get that pixie cut, how about a bob instead? Make like Sonakshi Sinha and add in some waves from time to time. It’ll give you movement and keep it looking effortless and sexy.


3. Kylie Jenner

She’s the queen of switching up her hairdos and if you’re born with super straight hair, this is the cut for you. Of course, Kylie uses a wig, but this is definitely a look I’d like permanently.


4. Parineeti Chopra

On days when you’re feeling too lazy to dry your hair (even though it’s short), just roll it up and secure it on the nape of your neck. When you’re ready to leave the house, undo the bun and this is what you’ll be left with — short and simple!


5. Bella Hadid

The best part about short hair? It’s the fact that you can show off that sexy back so easily! No more pushing your hair to one shoulder to keep your back in full view!


6. Vaani Kapoor

Vaani Kapoor made the cut for a film, but you’ve got to admit it suits her so much! Grab sections of your short hair and curl it with a curling iron to add some easy-breezy waves.


7. Selena Gomez

Not only is getting a blow dry for short hair faster, it even looks fantastic. Selena Gomez is proof!


8. Priyanka Chopra

And finally, make like Priyanka Chopra and add a tight braid down one side of your short do. It’s super edgy and has the power to amp up your look instantly!
