Miley first debuted this look in 2014, and we can all agree that it really suits her. It's a great style if you want a short do that's versatile, and if you have great skin you can show it off! The hair is left longer on the top, so you sweep it back to create a pompadour, or use a curling wand set to create a stylish fringe.
Vanessa Hudgens' Wavy Tousled Short Bob
You can have a short hairdo that looks great, even with wavy hair! Vanessa looks great with this style as layers have been sliced out, which removes a lot of the bulk and leaves the hair more manageable. Use a hair curl iron to control the waves and get them looking perfect.
Carey Mulligan's Chic Soft Bob

Rihanna's Shattered Edgy Bob
If you have super short hair, or are happy to break the flat irons out, this look could be for you. The graduated and tapered tips finish the look off perfectly. If you're feeling like the style needs something extra, do as Rihanna's done and add in some multi colored highlights around the front.
Jessie J's Short Buzz Cut
