"To my surprise, the bowl cut went completely viral," says Adir Abergel. The celebrity hairstylist is referring the now iconic short cut he gave Charlize Theron this summer.

Since the initial cut, the duo have demonstrated just how versatile short hair can be by reinventing Theron's now pixie length with different parts, slicked-back layers, longer pieces added to the front, and even covering up her grown-out roots on the red carpet with a diamond Tiffany bracelet.

2. Kerry Washington's Oscars Pixie Cut Will Convince You to Go Short

Kerry Washington's Oscars Pixie Cut Will Convince You to Go Short

Kerry Washington's latest hair chop might convince you to go even shorter. The actress showed up to the 2019 Vanity Fair Oscars Party with a brand new grown-out pixie cut, and she looked absolutely incredible.

Considering her loyalty to the lob over the past few years, it was a surprising, but super chic, change. The style, featuring long layers on top and a side-swept bang, mimics what we've seen recently on celebrities like Cardi B, Emilia Clarke, and of course, the power pixie queen herself, Kris Jenner.

Those with a heart-shaped face like Kerry Washington should consider fringe. "Long, side-swept bangs are great to add definition to cheekbones and flatter a heart-shaped face," Vaccaro says. "I love a shoulder-length cut with pixie bangs."

4. If You Have an Oval Face

If you have an oval face shape, you should go ahead and ask for the pixie of your dreams. We love Zoë Kravitz's short cut because she styles it so many different ways. "I love a modern pixie or a haircut that allows you to slick it back. Think short layers with a softer fringe or pixie paired with a deep side part," Vaccaro says.

5. If You Have a Round Face

It's all about the bob or lob for this face shape, and Chrissy Teigen is the perfect example. "For ladies with round faces, I suggest avoiding short, blunt bangs, and instead opting for soft, longer bangs," Vaccaro says. "Volume in the right places is essential. You don't want a haircut that gives you volume at the jawline. Volume needs to be at the crown of the head."

6. If You Have a Square Face

"Adding softness is key for those with square-shaped faces," Giovanni Vaccaro, Glamsquad Artistic Director, recommends. "I love creating texture with a razor to give airiness to the ends. Steer clear of a length that hits at the jawline; aim to have your bob fall an inch or two below." Look to celebrities like Olivia Wilde for inspiration. Finally, when styling your hair, he recommends adding volume at the root or going for an oval-shaped hairstyle, rather than sleek and straight.

7. Selena Gomez

A low ponytail isn't your only updo option. Selena Gomez did her hair in an undone updo by twisting small sections of her hair up at the nape of her neck. She swept her bangs to the side and left two face-framing pieces out of the updo to keep it from looking too formal.

8. Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart is one of the many celebs this summer who are making a case for digging out the hair clips you wore in middle school. Yes, '90s hair accessories are peak trendy right now, but in this case they're also practical, too. Twist the shorter layers of your cut, and clip them back to keep them out of your face.

9. Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes is proof that there's more than one way to wear a blunt bob. Move your part off-center tuck one side of it behind your ear. Keeping your hair flyaway-free probably seems impossible, but you can keep frizz under control with the right product. A few blasts of Living Proof's No-Frizz Instant De-Frizzer will restore hair's natural oils so that it's soft and smooth again.

10. Emma Roberts

Stop overthinking it: If you're bored of your bob, tuck the front pieces behind your ears. You'll be surprised at how a small change can make your cut look entirely different. Create Emma Roberts's textured waves by running a flat iron down sections of your hair in an "S" shape. Spritz on a texturizing spray like R+Co's Trophy Shine Texture Spray for a peice-y finish.
