Like any strong, bold style choice, the pixie cut can be divisive. People pretty much love it, or hate it—there's no room to feel "meh" on the short hairstyle associated with Audrey Hepburn, Twiggy, Mia Farrow, and Tinkerbell. You’re in, or you’re out.

Surprisingly, in the last few weeks the pixie cut has emerged as a clear growing trend for spring, as many a celebrity has stepped out baring a cute new version of the retro 'do. As someone who spent her entire life in camp "nay" for the pixie cut—ever one to favor feathery long beach waves—I've found myself genuinely shocked to adore how it looks on a fresh crop of stars. 

Rather than recoil at what I once felt was a boyish and un-alluring look; I've been leaning in to get a closer glance, in awe of how sexy and cool these women, from Lily Collins to Zendaya, look with modern-day takes on the iconic cut. 

If you don't believe me, or if you've always been team pixie and want some inspiration for your next trip to the salon, keep scrolling to see how six celebrities are making the pixie look better than ever.
