I started making a list and so far I have:

1. Gwyneth Paltrow cut her hair to super short in 1997 right after she & Brad Pitt ended their romance. Her hair was so short it was held back by a single hairpin. Her hair is currently bra length.

2. Janet Jackson in 1995 had a super short pixie. As of 2002-3 it is below her shoulders.

3. Keri Russell had super long curls in 1994 & then in 1999 she chopped it all off and her TV show ratings plummeted. Right now her hair is shoulder length.

4. Cameron Diaz. In 1997 she had a little boy look as a result of damage from hair extensions during filming of The Mask. In 1998 she wore that famous jeweled hair clip to the Oscars. Currently has hair below her shoulders.

5. Sarah Michelle Gellar on Buffy has been up and down the hair scale like a yo-yo but last season on buffy she got her hair cut during an episode to a short swingy bob. It is now long again.

6. Jada Pinkett Smith, when she first married Will Smith had super short locks. Now her hair is a little below the shoulders.

7. Cate Blanchette went super short with long bangs around the time she had her baby last year.

8. Hilary S**** went very short for her Academy award winning role in Boys Don't Cry.

9. Demi Moore spent a long time growing her hair back from her GI Jane cut.

10. Lara Flynn Boyle has morphed back and forth between short and current shoulder length.

I am sure there are tons more that you all can help me with so post your favs.

Stephanie,

Since I wear my hair short now and am keeping it this way, I'm actually interested in celebrity women who have cut their long hair and like it short and want to keep it that way!

I was glad to see Halle Berry with very short hair again at the Oscars, she looks great! Jamie Curtis continues to wear her hair short. Sharon Stone has gone to a fairly short style again.

Toni Braxton actually has kept her hair short too, when you see her with long hair I read that she actually has extensions, which is true with many of the women who go from short to long. They don't have the patience or perhaps don't have the desire or inclination to grow long hair so they just have the extensions put in when they want long hair. That is very common, you read about that often, and I have known women who have done that.

Two examples of women who had short hair who grew it longer and I think they look better with short hair; Victoria Beckham(Posh Spice), and Winona Ryder.

Lady Maria,
Most if not all of these women disappointed me by growing their hair back... I do love short hair on women and always like to read your pro-short hair comments...

Change is good for the soul and fun to talk about!

Thanks Tony also for your support and appreciation of short haired ladies!

It's great that Hairguy and Karen started the Short Hair Board for those of us who wear our hair short, or who appreciate short hairstyles on women, and like to chat about these hairstyles.

One thing I don't understand about all this is that while an actress may wear her hair in a longer style for quite sometime they seldom maintain a short cut and usually start growing it out immediately. This observation is a generalization of course with exceptions already noted.

Jodie Foster, for example, has made a number of movies in the past several years, mostly with longer hair, but invariably turns up at the awards ceremonies afterwards with the killer chin length bob that I find so attractive on her.

Sometimes an actress cuts her hair for a part. Looking down the list, I can see a number of actresses who did just that. Once the part's done, they go back to the long hair they want. When Demi Moore went short both times, she did so for a movie.

Long hair is often considered sexier and it often makes a woman look younger. Actresses have to be concerned with how other people see them. If her agent and others tell her these things, they are impactful. Actresses always want to play younger than their age. It gives them more options.

The parts an actress will be able to read for often are determined by her look. Long hair is the sexy temptress and short hair is the cute best friend or the wife.

Consider Keri Russell. She loved short hair. The reaction to it probably has her thinking keeping it short will hurt her career.

Many exceptions to that Rod.
Sharon Stone, Halle Berry, Winona Ryder, Charlie Theron(in her most famous role), even Persis Khambatta(bald), many others, all made a name for themselves with short hair.
In the past decade the three women who are generally considered the sexiest women by most people I know and in the celebrity mags are Halle Berry, Sharon Stone and Jennifer Lopez. Two out of three of these ladies have short or very short hair.

If you read about women in film history or have seen old films on cable T.V.,..... Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield had short hair, and they were the big sex stars of our parents and grandparents generation. This is nothing new, it goes back to the short haired bobbed sexy ladies of the 1920s era.

But it is actually much more common in the music world. There have been many short haired women who made it big in music. Sometime when I have the time I will compile a list of female singers who made it big while wearing short or very short hair.

I'm always disappointed when beautiful female celebs grow out their short hair. I mean, the short hair is almost invariably what makes me think they're beautiful to begin with-- I almost never give long-haired women a second glance-- so when a beautiful short-haired woman grows it out, she usually becomes ho-hum to me.

8. Hilary S**** went very short for her Academy award winning role in Boys Don't Cry.


I know this is an older thread, but I've seen Hilary's name written like it is above in other threads. Why is that? Is there something about her name that we're not supposed to write? Just a bit confused, I guess.

I bought some batteries, but they weren't included.

The only person I can think of now is Halle Berry that lately been wearing some curly hairstyle. Personally I think she should go back short again, it''s something about her with a short cut that makes her really stands out. Besides, I always admire her hairstyles.

She looks tiny in long hair, like it overwhelms her petite frame and features, especially when it's as large and curly as it has been. Short, straight hair just makes her look more in proportion, and shows off her delicate features more, I think.

How About Tia Carrere?
The seductress was Cassandra on "Wayne's World" and its subsequent sequel. She had long hair and admiteddly it did look good. Around 1995-1996 she had short hair and it looked even better.

Jerky Flea Even Had an Article on her and her haircut in the mid 1990's It's still on this link:

http://www.hairboutique.com/JerkyFlea/JerkyFlea_July2000_1.htm - http://www.hairboutique.com/JerkyFlea/JerkyFlea_July2000_1.htm

Here is another Photo of her sporting a sexy short cut:
http://www.imdb.com/gallery/ss/0116531/hsh8.jpg - http://www.imdb.com/gallery/ss/0116531/hsh8.jpg

Unfortunately she reverted back to long hair with no hope of her getting it cut short ever again (Then again I did not Think Alanis Morisette would go as short as she did go).
