    Styles that bridge traditional gender norms have captivated us for decades. Annie Lennox and Grace Jones exuded confidence with their cropped hair and masculine tailoring. Tilda Swinton has delighted our senses many times over. David Bowie blew our minds in Labyrinth. Playing with identity shows an open and fearless attitude toward personal style.

    And, when it comes to sweeping traditional rules under the rug, hair is a great place to start. We predict seeing even more androgynous hair next year, as the trend becomes norm. Now’s the time to try it out and rock it with pride. It’s all about acceptance, curiosity, and experimentation: Just take it from these trend-setters.

    Edit note: A previous version of this story included an image of Andreja Pejic. As several commenters have pointed out, Ms. Pejic is in no way androgynous, nor is her hair. We apologize to Andreja and regret the error.
