Not everyone’s gone pixie short. While Jennifer Lawrence went to extremes to rescue her damaged hair, plenty of women are taking smaller steps, chopping their long summer tresses into a blunt bob that ends anywhere from their ears to their shoulders. Natalie Portman and Sofia Coppola sport demure versions while Into the Gloss’ Emily Weiss went platinum and Rihanna added a thick fringe when she went short this week.
