The Surprising Hair Trend Sweeping Hollywood Right Now

Last summer, it was nearly impossible to scroll through Instagram without seeing a celebrity debut a new lob haircut. The shoulder-grazing chop quickly became the trend of the season, sweeping Hollywood for months. Now, less than a year later, it seems as though stars are looking to go even shorter (and we totally predicted it). Only this time, celebs are putting down the sheers and picking up the razor. The style on everyone's minds: a buzzcut.
Of course, the cut itself isn't exactly new. In the past, the likes of Natalie Portman, Sinead O’Connor, Grace Jones, and Demi Moore have all rocked the buzzed look. And while its heyday may have been during the late ‘90s and early 2000s, we think the style's latest revival is better than ever, thanks to its unexpected addition of peroxide. Everyone from Kristen Stewart and Cara Delevingne to Justin Bieber and Katy Perry are stepping out with bleached buzzcuts, and we have to admit we dig it. All that's left to ask is who will be next.

Kristen Stewart

After rocking an overgrown pixie cut for months, the Personal Shopper actress went for something even cooler. Not only did Stewart go platinum (again), she also debuted a brand-new buzzcut at the film premiere.

Katy Perry

First, the singer went blonde before the Grammy’s (around the same time as her best friend Allison Williams). Then Perry went for a pixie, courtesy of celeb hair guru Chris McMillian. By April, she decided to go even shorter — and buzz the sides of her head to boot.

Justin Bieber

Bieber used to be the hair flip king. Now, he may just be the inspiration behind the blond buzzcut trend...maybe. Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?

Zoë Kravitz

Having a signature style takes time — just ask Kravitz. Her platinum braids were almost synonymous to her name, and we never predicted we'd see her without them. Alas, even Kravitz was ready for a change, recently chopping off the plaits.

Cara Delevingne

The latest and greatest to join the ranks of the buzzed crew is Delevingne. Sure, the bold move was for a role — the same film Jaden Smith chopped his hair for — but we love the look all the same. Even better, Delevingne added in some cotton candy-colored streaks to complement her newly bleached 'do.
