Some of your favourite celebrities are also going short this season. From Anushka Sharma to Selena Gomez, these celebrities have shown us different ways to try short hair this season and it’s time you take the plunge yourself!

Take cues from these celebrities to go short this season and have yourself an easy-breezy Summer…

Anushka Sharma

Anushka Sharma’s lob is perfect for when you’re not entirely sure you want to go full Posh Spice and embrace the bob life. It suits all face shapes and you can have a tonne of fun with the way you choose to style it.

Sayani Gupta

The talented actress debuted a pixie cut a few months back. Now that her hair is growing out, Gupta has started styling them in a fun bob. The short haircut can be styled in messy waves to add texture or be straightened for a sleek and refined look. The hairstyle is fun, bold, and youthful, perfect for that beach vacay you’ve been planning for months.

Deepika Padukone

If you want to experiment but cannot bear to say goodbye to your beautiful, long tresses, then we’d suggest going the Deepika way and getting a shoulder-length style. With her variety of hairstyles during the Gehraiyaan promotion run, the actress showed us the many ways we can rock the do this Summer.

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez is not new to short hairstyles (remember her sleek bob at the 2017 Met Gala red carpet?), but the pop star debuted a bangin’ hairstyle on Instagram recently. The singer-actress showcased her short hair + bangs combo to her followers, leading to a surge in ‘How To Cut Bangs At Home’ and ‘Bangs Would Suit My Face, Even Though The Bangs I Tried Back In 2015 Made Me Cry For A Week Straight’ searches on Google. Ok, so maybe we made up those searches but you can definitely take the plunge and get bangs like Gomez this Summer.

Halle Berry

The Oscar-winning actress is no stranger to a pixie cut, but at this year’s Critics Choice Awards Berry sported a pixie/undercut hybrid, with long side-swept bangs, that was equal parts edgy and chic. The actress chose to highlight her bangs blonde at the top and brown at the roots. Be warned, this hairstyle is not for the faint of heart. But we strongly encourage you to take the plunge this Summer and try Berry’s variation of a regular pixie cut yourself.

So would you chop your hair to a shorter length now?
