There's no denying that long hair is fun to braid, twist, curl, and quickly toss into a bun — a few things that are impossible to do when sporting a classic bob or pixie cut, right? Wrong! Cuts that barely hit the shoulder — even styles that require clippers — can be just as beautiful, playful, and versatile.

Proof: We doubt you’ve ever looked at Ruby Rose and wished she had longer hair, or thought Emma Watson made a huge mistake by chopping her Hermione mane into a pixie. The fact is, short hair of all lengths is gorgeous and badass. Whether you’re in a hair rut, want a new style for your already short locks, sick and tired of your damaged ends, or ready for a big transformation, it's time to book that salon appointment.

But first, let's get inspired. To help, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite celebrities who wear short locks like true pros. Get ready to pin and screenshot for the next few minutes, because these short cuts rock our world — and they're sure to inspire you.

Tao Okamoto
This isn't the bowl cut your younger brother got in second grade. Instead, it's sleek, it's sexy, and it's actually easier to style than you'd think.

Natalie Portman
While Portman is back to her longer locks now, we can't get enough of her grown-out pixie. Her original buzz cut was great, but the luscious, short layers here look amazing, too.

Kate Mara
Longer layers in the front of a short cut, like Mara has here, make the cheekbones go POP. Think of this chop as contour — without the makeup.

Solange Knowles
We're in love with Solange's shifting styles just as much as with her latest album — talk about reaching impressive heights.

Emma Watson
The Perks of Being a Wallflower star inspired us to be a bit more edgy — who else loved Watson's character Sam? — and her messy pixie sparked our confidence, too.

Amber Rose
The queen of platinum buzzes, Rose shows everyone that sexy confidence does not equal longer-than-life hair. Rock your look at any length.

Miley Cyrus
Stunned as we all were when she chopped off her long 'do, we quickly fell in love with her shorter styles. (And the platinum dye made it that much edgier.)

Julianne Hough
The best part about having a cut that just grazes your chin? The sultry (and easy) look of slicking all of it back with some soft-hold mousse during a good blowout.

Jennifer Lawrence
Fringe, fringe, and more fringe. This choppy look is dry texturizing spray's best friend. Bonus: It looks great formal and casual.

Nathalie Emmanuel
Unlike Khaleesi, this Game of Thrones beauty sports the same enviable 'do in real life — and we would, too! Seriously, look at those shiny spirals. (Tip: It's L.A. curl expert Shai Amiel whom Emmanuel trusts with her locks.)

Gina Rodriguez
Her look is practically two 'dos in one. Flip over your deep part and reveal your buzzed side, or hide it with a center-part.

Jennifer Hudson
A deeply parted pixie gives you some serious volume — without a lot of effort. Score!

Ruby Rose
We fell in love with her tattoos, but we stuck around for her jet-black chop. To achieve a similar look, make sure you buzz the sides shorter than the top, then just embrace the grow-out phase because it's great at every stage.

Ruth Bell
A soft buzz cut may have gotten Bell noticed in the modeling world, but it's also killer inspiration for anyone looking to go short.

Zendaya
Zendaya's sharp cut gets some movement with a bit of hair pomade and dry shampoo.

Rihanna
Despite the singer's ever-evolving aesthetic, Rihanna's short 'do rocked our world back in the early 2000s.

Lily Collins
We need a double take to make sure this is Collins and not Jordan from The Great Gatsby. PSA: An S-wave works just as well on a short cut as it does on a Rapunzel mane.

Lupita Nyong'o
Transitioning to your natural texture takes a thought-out strategy. Finding inspiration to do it, however, is as easy as checking out the Queen of Katwe actress' enviable beauty look on every red carpet she graces.

Millie Bobby Brown
We know her as Eleven with that badass buzz cut, but in real life, Brown has been growing out her dark locks through every adorable stage.
