12 Celebs Who Proved Short Hair Rules On The Red Carpet

We don't mean to be harsh, but red carpet hair could use a serious dose of creativity most of the time. The famous faces who flood these awards shows typically rest on their laurels — vintage waves, voluminous blowouts, and glamorous updos. You know what you need to pull off all these styles?

Instead, the stars wore their lack of length proudly, while giving us serious hair envy.
The embracing of these shorter styles could signal a serious change in awards-season beauty. Cropped 'dos represent a more modern approach to red carpet styling, and the women ahead prove just that. Click through to see our favorite cuts of the evening. Who says bobs don't go with evening wear?
