It's much shorter than the chin-length crop that's been sweeping Hollywood lately, but it's not quite a pixie. Even so, Scarlett managed to completely ace this low-maintenance cut. Shots of the back of her head show that it's actually shaved, which will come in handy once it's time for her to start growing her mane back out.
