Hot Hair: The Pixie Cut

When it comes to hair, right now its all about extremes--ie, super long (Ciara), super curly (Beyonce), super bright (Rihanna)--and one of Hollywood's sexiest styles is the super-short look, ie, the "pixie." Originally made popular by Halle Berry and Toni Braxton in the early Nineties, this boyish crop has suddenly become hotter than ever! The best part? This cut is fabulously versatile. Whether you rock it tight and close to the head, like Eva Marcille, or longer and spikier, a'la Nicole Ari Parker (left), this short style is always chic. Here, our favorite superstar pixies.
