1. Jennifer Hudson

Over the course of the last few years, Jennifer Hudson has made quite the transformation, both physically and in terms of her hairstyle. Once known for her long, flowing locks, the powerhouse songstress and Oscar winner recently chopped her tresses in favor of an edgy short cut that appears to have given her a new stylish and sexy look.

Her pixie cut is slightly longer than the average length for this particular style, however the increased length allows her various styling opportunities, such as a faux hawk, tucked behind her ears, combed forward or topped with voluminous curls.

She has successfully worn her hair cut short into what is affectionately known as “the Halle” for decades, only updating it slightly for a continuously modern appearance.

4. Meagan Good

Known for years as the sexy vixen next door in her various film and television roles, actress Meagan Good decided to look more grown up a few years ago and that meant ditching her long locks, in favor of a spunky short cut that garners just as much attention. She opts for an old-school asymmetric style that is modernized thanks to the cut, color and styling implemented. Her right side is shaved and cut low, while her left side falls along her upper cheek. The look is finished with voluminous curls places through the longest side.
