Michelle Williams’ sleek new side-shaved hairstyle is right on trend with Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber
Just when we thought Michelle Williams was growing out her hair she debuted a shorter, very trendy style at the Kate Young for Target launch in New York City last night. The “very trendy” description is key: Williams’ cut is quite short on one side with a long sweep of bang on top—making it very similar to the shaved-side styles recently worn by Pink and Miley Cyrus. (Well, to be fair, Pink has had that haircut for years…) Either way, it’s certainly the edgiest look we’ve seen on Williams, who tends to favour softer styles and classic pixie cuts.
But with Michelle Williams embracing the side-shaved style, does this mean it’s en route to becoming a mainstream cut? Up until now, the look has been reserved for pop stars and It girls—from Rihanna to Kelly Osbourne to Kate Lanphear. Even Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco emulated the style at the ACM Awards on Sunday night with a slicked-back pompadour. And not to leave the guys out of this, Justin Bieber also showed off a similar style this week. His new cut echoes the long bangs of his iconic tween-age Bieber style with, you guessed it, close-shaven sides.
When Miley Cyrus cut her hair last August it seemed drastic and daring—but eight months later, she seems to be right on trend and the style no longer shocks. And with short cuts of all types being on trend for fall, we suspect more starlets will copy this style. But what about you?
