Cynthia Nixon is not the first actress to shave off their hair for their art. Celebs like Natalie Portman, Mena Suvari and Demi Moore have all dared to go bare for movie or stage roles. Britney Spears also famously shaved her head... although it was during a nervous breakdown. Whatever the circumstances, it must take a lot of guts and confidence to take the plunge. For Cynthia, it has paid off. Her portrayal of a cancer patient in the play Wit has earned her a Tony nomination.

Here, Cynthia is doing a great job at glamming up her super short haircut on the red carpet. It has grown in a bit, during her stint on the stage she was completely bald, and now looks like a super stylish pixie haircut. Cynthia knows that cropped hair puts all the emphasis on the face, and has played up her light blue eyes with smokey eye shadow to make the most of her features. She also chose a glossy pink lipstick and gorgeous gold earrings to complete the look. After so many years sporting her "Miranda" bob, this drastic haircut definitely creates a new persona both on and off screen for the actress.

This hairdo is cropped short in uniform layers all over to create this low-fuss hairstyle which is great for those looking for a hairdo that takes needs no time to style and very little product. This simple style is great for most hair types and will need regular trims to maintain shape.

This short hairstyle actually suits Cynthia quite well... do you think she will keep this super short style?

Styling Steps

1. Wax Hair Down at the Back


Apply some wax to your fingertips and then pull through the ends of your hair in a downward motion to achieve a sculptured look. Pinch clumps of hair in different directions for a messier result.

2. Style Sides Down Using Wax


Using a small amount of wax, work it through the mid-lengths and ends in a downward, pinching motion. For added texture, apply more pinching and more wax.

3. Pinch Hair for Texture Using Wax


To finish the look, apply wax to your fingertips, making sure to smooth the wax over all of your fingers, then simply pinch the wax onto the ends of your hair, applying as much or as little as needed.
