Jennifer Lawrence's 'Do Will Surprise You

It's a happy Monday, indeed. After showcasing a super-chic baby bob a few weeks ago, Jennifer Lawrence has debuted yet another rad hairstyle for the premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past. This is basically the coolest transitional 'do we've seen in a while: It's pulled back on one side in what appears to be a French twist, but then the right side is left loose in all of its cheekbone-hugging glory.
Truth be told, we haven't seen short-hair innovation like this since the master of the baby bob herself, Michelle Williams, unleashed her own version of this sneaky, asymmetrical hairstyle on the carpet. One of the many reasons we love J Lawr's style is that, like Williams' 'do, there is the illusion of a half-shave, which gives her bob an entirely fresh look and a huge dose of edginess without requiring her to go under the clippers. (Of course, we fully applaud those who do go for the buzz — major props, Kelly Osbourne.) To fully appreciate the genius of this hair, though, you must see it from the other side.

As you can see, the Academy Award-winning actress' stylist created a deep side-part, swept her length to the right, and then pulled all of the hair on the left side straight back into a sharp, sleek twist. The result? An unexpected, evening-perfect 'do that breathes new life into her jaw-length cut. Paired with a purple smoky eye and soft-plum lips, the overall beauty look is darkly romantic and really, really pretty.
Lawrence has proven once again that she can make any hair length versatile. Of course, we'll be waiting to see what this short-hair maestro whips up next.
