Michelle Williams’ hair: from Marilyn Monroe to “It Girl”

‘It Girl’ loyal to short hair

Michelle Williams, who used to be better known as ex-wife of deceased Heath Ledger, was one of the first stars to cut off most of her hair. Carey Mulligan and Ginnifer Goodwin are  leading “It Girls” in the cropped-hair category. In fact, Michelle and Carey popped up at the same awards show in their newly shorn hair.

What’s most important to us is that she’s stayed short so long. Now her pixie gets almost as much attention as her award nominations for her acting. Anyway, we love her style,…not only for the spunk it reflects but also because it’s the easiest haircut you can find. The look doesn’t take much more than a shampoo. Extra touches are simple, too: gelled up or pulled back behind a headband. For the first hair “do,” apply styling gel to damp hair and lift it while blowdrying. Hair ornaments need no explanation and depend on your mood! With good layers hair will fall right into place no matter what! If super-short is too much for you, ask a skilled hairstylist how to do it on slightly longer hair.

Michelle’s chic looks now couldn’t be farther from her style at her first big  trip to the Independent Spirit Awards. She won a Spirited award (plus a Golden Globe) for her leading role in My Week With Marilyn. In one of the night’s best speeches of the night, she described herself a decade ago like this: “I wore my own clothes, which were not very good. And I cut my own hair!”

It’s hard to imagine her in those pre-star days…especially when you see what she wore to the most recent Spirits contest: an adorable, slightly outrageous jacket and short shorts.

No matter her past, we hope her future shows her sticking to her guns in the hair department!
