Red Carpet Trend Alert:<br>Pixie Cuts Galore

Mia Farrow's gamine chic is back, as seen on Michelle Williams

When Mia Farrow chopped off all her strawberry blonde locks, her husband Frank Sinatra reportedly stood by and watched in horror. It was coif maestro Vidal Sasson, who perfected her pixie cut in 1966 and transformed her look from glamour puss to gamine poster child.

On Saturday, actress Michelle Williams showed up at the Spirit Awards in Santa Monica looking like the ghost of Mia past. Her cropped style was parted to the side and she wore minimal make up and glossy peach lips. The effect was as sweet and fresh as a buttercup. Selma Blair and Neve Campbell have been spotted with new choppy short looks as well.

Want to take the plunge? The pixie cut shows off the face, so know that you can’t hide behind your hair if you go short. Elfin features—big eyes, high cheekbones—typically work best with the severe style. Think of the adorable visages of Audrey Hepburn, Winona Ryder and Natalie Portman. A round face is not the best match for the cut; oval and heart shaped faces work best. Lastly, be sure to play up eyes if you decide to go gamine. Lots of mascara during the day and a smoky metallic eye at night will draw attention to your peepers.
