The trends continue to surprise and delight! Though one would traditionally associate shortening up and cutting off length with summertime, when clients are more apt to seek out a lighter and fresher look, celebrities have been in the salon chair quite a bit recently taking the big chop. From shorter fringe to parting with extensions, here are a few celebrities exploring new cuts and opting for a little less around the holidays this year.

Why not experiment with a new style over the holidays? The actress debuted her new, slightly rounded full fringe on the red carpet recently with a textured ‘do, then later with a high ponytail to let her bangin’ new feature take center stage.

Heard of “tilted fringe”? It’s a “visual exercise” and a new trend and take on fringe, says Redken’s Sam Villa.
