Is this pixie cut too drastic?  Does it need to be longer to add softness?
 
Thoughts?  At least her ears are not too big.

Looks perfect to me! Love this look on her!

We all know what opinions are like...and I've got both!

I like the cut overall. I looked at other pics - in some at this length it looks good and in others it looks a little flat or weighted down (maybe too much product... or not enough???). With just a little more length looks great.

I think she looks great.  She can definitely wear a short pixie.  I think this is her best look compared to when she had shoulder length hair.  She could be the spokesmodel for the pixie IMO.

Personally, I like pixies with a little more length, but she has small features and it looks good on her.

I agree.  While I generally like longer hair (bob length or longer) I think Michelle looks stunning with her pixie.  It's a great look for her.  She has the beauty to carry it off.

     I wouldn't notice the hair of this woman, in a good or bad way, if I saw her at the mall. It's OK but not impressive. NEWSFLASH: I did see a pregnant woman with hair even shorter than MW's in late May, and it looked absolutely amazing on her. So, I'm not TOTALLY prejudiced. LOL But on Michelle, I don't think she looks half as hot since she cut her long hair. Bob [IMG]smileys/smiley1.gif" align="middle" />

Williams reveals that her decision to go short was an intensely personal one, possibly in tribute to her former partner, http://www.people.com/people/heath_ledger -

I'm a straight man who prefers short hair on women and I know there are a few more out there, especially ones who visit this board.  Would love for her to read ths post.

If enough of us say we love her will she go long again? What? Too soon?

I'm not a straight guy....just a straight woman and I don't have a girl crush on Michelle.  LOL.  But I still love her pixie haircut.  It makes her stand out in Hollywood where everyone is a carbon copy of Jennifer Aniston or Angelina or whomever is the star of the moment.  She was on Ellen recently and she has the slender body and the chiseled face to pull it off.  And she's still young enough.  If she were older it would accentuate every line, sag and bag on her face.  But yeah, even though I love long hair in general, I think Michelle look great.

I'm another straight guy who loves short hair. Her comments scare the crap out of me. Have I gotten that metrosexual? :)

Kramer pulls out a stunning picture of her with long hair but the fact is that most of the time when I saw her with long hair it was scraggly and unkempt and I didn't think worked for her. This short cut has totally allowed her to forge her own identity and is really hot.

What I like about the pixie is not that it is traditionally beautiful but that it is such a statement of confidence on a woman. It doesn't matter if it is totally fixed and precise or messy and unkempt it still makes the girl who wears it stand out. Not everyone has the facial structure to do that well but for those that can it is very attractive.

She is a short hair icon but I haven't liked the ultra-short ultra-bleached version nearly as much as some softer ones she's had when she added a little lenght.

I don't know why more celebs don't chop though. The extra attention they get in media and amongst the fans is undeniable.

Hi Trout,

I agree that celebs get lots of attention from the media and fans when they chop off their hair but sometimes there's a backlash.  Vanessa Hudgens is one prime example.  So many fans just hated her new haircut.  It didn't really suit her face and it actually aged her.  She endured a lot of haters all over the web who just attacked her short hairstyle choice.

Now Ashlee Simpson always seems to go through big chops with grace but her sister Jessica...not so much.  She tried to fool fans with that short layered wig and she looked horrible with short hair.  Her chin is too pointed and she gains weight easily in her cheeks and jaw.  So imagine the attention she would get...if anyone cared.  But probably not good.

I think ultimately the fan attention can turn ugly if the haircut is too short or the celeb just looks bad in short hair.  Not everyone can pull it off and look good.  Just my humble opinion though and you all know I adore long hair.  But when short hair looks good I think it's a great choice.

      Trout, I know women who wear the ragged long look virtually every day. Michele was indeed one of these. So, while I think that STYLED long hair flattered her much more than the pixie, I'm all for her staying short.
      Over the past 5 or 6 years, I actually *encouraged* two women with unkempt hair to cut theirs when I was asked about my opinion. Usually, I say, "You're joking, right?" But in these cases, both went short and the improvements were dramatic. Bob

It's rare to find a Hollywood actress who doesn't wear long hair well, but Michelle is one of the few. I liked short hair on Alyssa Milano, Katie Holmes, and Elisha Cuthbert, but all look great with long hair. Michelle's long hair rarely looked like it had a style.

      As I stated, I agree with your assessment, Michael, but in my world, I have two rules for what I considered long, STYLED hair. A comb is a must, and straight, fine hair should never be heavily layered. Long and perfectly straight is a most beautiful style, in my eyes!

Michelle is not the most startlingly beautiful of celebs. Therefore she needs to create interest in other ways. Perhaps she succeeds with this signature short cut.

I think she is able to pull it off.  She has very feminine features and big doe eyes that let her get away with having a short cut like this!

I am in agreement with FatMoogas.  Michelle is not a stunning beauty.  In some circles she makes up for her lack of beauty with her acting chops.

Not all agree that her acting is stellar.  It's a matter of perspective.

One thing she does do is attract unusual male partners. 

Her latest is pictured below.

"Michelle is not a stunning beauty." Tough crowd...

So how about showing us how stunning YOU are. Post a picture!

Post a picture.

And then stun me.

Now I remember why I quit participating here. The bitchiness, for one, and several members acting like they own the place. Screw this nonsense.

Well, Karen Shelton, I for one, would love to be one of her "unusual male partners," that you speak of. She is flat out gorgeous, talented and smart. Beauty is, as always, in the eye of the beholder, but in Michelle Williams case, I think she's a knock out.

Peace to all

Don is being unnecessarily rude. It's an opinion and we all have them. It doesn't sound extreme to me to say Michelle is not the greatest of beauties. She's cute and pretty for sure--maybe even beautiful for some (beauty is in the eye of the beholder). But she's not Rita Hayworth, Demi Moore or Doutzen Kroes.

I haven't begun to be rude yet, sir. Have you ever been rude or snide on this board? Maybe threw your weight around a little when someone disagreed with one of your opinions?

I'm just asking, sir.

Love Michelle, she is fine by me. She wears short hair well. Many celeb "beauties" are actually normal, real women who,  when viewed without the professional hair/makeup jobs look very different. Don't get me wrong...I love seeing ladies made up and coiffed within an inch of thier lives for the cameras but in real life...they are humans like the rest of us.

Karen is not only gorgeous, she has amazing hair and she is a total sweetheart. And in case you didn't know, this is her site. She allows us to be who we are here and have opinions. SHE DOES OWN THE PLACE.

I do know that. I used to post here pretty often, until I got tired of, as I said, the bitchiness (Jesus H. Christ, I've never seen an larger assembly of grown men who act like Joan Rivers.) That, and a few of the other members bullying the rest.

For the record, I think that Michelle Williams is a stunning beauty. Truly, I don't take issue with someone because he disagrees; rather, I take issue with the pettiness. A general example: "beautiful celebrity" has "blemish in this picture," while ignoring knockout physique, say.

Also, in general, this board seems to take an interest in maintaining the status quo. Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway serve as perfect examples. There's always a comment about their "unusual" features, for example. Meanwhile, some A-Lister, doesn't matter, she's always impeccable. So there's a double-standard at work. We're each allowed to have opinions, and that's nice, but if someone states an opinion that falls outside that of the status quo, then the bullies are given free reign.

So I'm rude. Cry me a fuh-king river, man. I know and respect your opinions, Kramer. In fact, I once defended you on this board. It was a long time ago when I posted with some regularity, but I'm sure, if you're so inclined, you can find it.

You get to be as abrasive as you want with impunity. "I think so-and-so looks great with short hair." "Yeah, that's because you're stupid." Mind you, that's a distillation, not an actual example. Yes, it's happened, and if you're honest, you'll own up to it.

It was fun to post here before the cliques formed. It's not that much fun anymore. "So why are you posting?" Well, actually, this exchange is fun. That okay with you?

I don't have a problem with the owner. And Kramer, you're not the owner, and neither are any of the other members whose boorishness is piqued when their sensibilities are offended.

Looks like same style--but she's still growing out. Paper says one side shaved--but that's obviously not true. I guess the style will change when she has enough length. Looks great now though.
