Ashlee Simpson Chops Off Hair -- Short Style Sweeping Hollywood?

Ashlee SimpsonAlas, I guess I'm just going to have to be out of style for awhile because it appears that short hair is definitely in (and I'm sure as hell not cutting my long hair).

More and more celebrities are chopping off their long locks for cute pixie cuts or chic bobs. The latest lovely lady is Ashlee Simpson, who went back to her roots with a blond color and cut her hair several inches. I'm willing to bet her shorter hair is much more baby-friendly.

Check out these five other celebs who have gone short this year:




Emma Watson

Emma Watson: After the filming of the last Harry Potter movie wrapped, Emma was finally able to chop off her iconic Hermione Granger locks. "I’ve wanted to do this since I was about 16, so as soon as I had the chance, I was like, ‘Right. This is it.’"

Hayden Panettiere

Hayden Panettiere: Hayden went for the boyish chic look back in August and, though very few people could pull off this look, she makes it look easy. Like Ashlee, she also went back to blond, which softens the look (if she had kept it at red, I'm afraid it would have appeared too rocker chic, which isn't really her style).

Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley: Keira debuted her new bob at this year's Paris Fashion Week. Bobs are a hit or miss, but Keira's narrow face structure is perfect for this short look.

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum: Another bobbed starlet, Heidi cut her long hair this past spring. The difference between her and Keira's cut is that Heidi has bangs (which rarely look good with bobs). In most photos, she (or her stylist) has them swept to the side, thank god.

Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart: The always sulky looking Twilight star actually looks a little more upbeat with her strawberry short locks. And I'm sure boyfriend Robert Pattinson agrees.

Who do you think pulls off short hair the best?
