Hathaway definitely didn’t like it when her hair went under the blade during the shoot for Les Miserables. However, we would add that she really looks good with the short strands, and if she asked our opinion, we’d definitely ask her to keep the look for a few more years!

4. Carey Mulligan’s Bleaching Fiasco

Short hair goes well with petite faces, and Carey Mulligan is an example of this. Mulligan admits to having a bleaching fiasco while shooting for Public Enemies, which caused her to cut all of her hair off. We think it really suits her!

Berry has been known for having the elfin look for as long as we remember. We think the short do compliments her cheekbones and her slight frame. Pixie cuts definitely are her natural look.

Portman is one star who isn’t afraid of shaving her head, as she showed all too well in V for Vendetta. There is only one way a shaved head would return a full mane – through the pixie style. We think Natalie looks great in this in between stage!

10. Winona Ryder- The Original

Ryder was the original pixie girl before the trend set in. Sporting the pixie cut in the 90s, she once said that her parents told her that it was more important to be unique than to blend in with the crowd. We should be thankful to her parents for inspiring her to try out pixie cuts, since she looks absolutely beautiful in them.
