August can be brutal in terms of heat and humidity, both of which can wreak havoc on your tresses. And it seems like lots of leading ladies are coping by rocking some closely cropped dos. Some of the sassiest young starlets are chopping their locks to beat the heat.

Scarlett Johansson shed her long layers in favor of a playful, tousled bob. Hair master Oribe was behind the recent transformation: "The cut isn't super-angled, and it isn't incredibly severe--it's softer and more wearable. There are a million directions you can take with this haircut--it's not your typical bob." I, for one, love this! If I wasn't in the process of growing my hair out (for the millionth time), I would be running to the salon with this cut in mind.

The lovely Emma Watson stepped out of character when she debuted her new pixie cut. It's decidedly un-Hermione. And she looks positively adorable. The petite star truly shines as the focus is no longer her wild mane but rather her feminine features, which are perfectly complemented by her cropped cut.

And finally, 90210 cutie, Jessica Stroup lobbed her bob. Jessica manages to looked pulled-together and polished while working her shaggy, rockerish pixie.

With only a few short weeks until the unofficial close of summer, are you thinking of a summery cut or will you wait for the fall before settling on a new style?


  1. My summery cut is pretty much identical to my wintery cut. But then again I've never been the most fashionable.

  2. I loved it when Jessica had longer hair! Scarlett looks really good, but Emma.....
    She was perfectly pretty with longer hair.
