Trendy "Long" Short Haircuts in Hollywood

Longer short cuts are all the rage in Hollywood right now! We spoke to Brian Meehan, owner of the Wayne Thomas Salon in NYC, for his take on some star-powered examples.

Jessica Alba is a wave rider with a "long" short haircut

"The rage now is shoulder-length bobs, which you can do a lot with," the pro says - just look at Jessica Alba's long, wavy bob. Her hair's texture helps keep the style looking natural, while texturizing the ends creates lift. Brunette locks are center-parted, which Meehan says is hard to pull off-only try it if you have a pefect profile.

To do: Work in a little serum, then blow-out with a large round brush. Leaving the top smooth, use a vertically held curling iron to create barrel curls, hen shake out and let it fall loose.

Tress up your bob haircut with girly, frilly accessories

Seen on: Nora Zehetner & Sara Paxton

Style Speak: "Nora's look has soft, sequined pieces that really help offset her dress... it takes her hair from blah to fabulous. Sara's, on the other hand, is just a bit too much and distracts from her gorgeous color and stunning eyes and makes her look less radiant. "

Nora's uber-short haircut puts her pretty features on full display. We love the soft drama of the accessory - it perfectly pulls together her look.

Sara's recent move to shed her lengthy locks exposed her gorgeous eyes...but her slightely overwhelming headband detracts from her pretty face.
