As demonstrated in this post, I love a good throwback. My latest obsession is the resurgence of double buns—a statement hairstyle championed by edgy fashion forces like Gwen Stefani (above) and Bjork in the ’90s. I’m glad to see that the look has parlayed it’s way back onto the scene, thanks to gals like Vanessa Hudgens and Rita Ora—two girls who know a thing or two about having fun with fashion.

Shocking New Look: Vanessa Hudgens Chops Off All Her Hair

When I see a pixie cut, I automatically think of timeless beauty Audrey Hepburn. Emma Watson absolutely makes short hair work too, but now another young starlet has taken her shot at it—Vanessa Hudgens.

True, she did originally chop off her long locks for her homeless girl role in Gimme Shelter, but at the time she admitted to Access Hollywood that it made her feel like a soccer mom. However the actress must have had a change of heart on Tuesday, when she donned an even shorter cut at the L.A. premiere of Captain America.

I admire her courage, but we aren’t the biggest fans of this new look, and I’m hoping she stays away from scissors for quite some time. Comment and let us know what you think about the switch!
