Q: I absolutely love Anne Hathaway’s new short haircut. It looks so cute! Can you tell me more about it? Is it low maintenance and would it look good on anyone?
A: Anne’s new look comes as a result of her work in the new production of Les Miserables. Since Hathaway’s character in the film, Fantine, sells her hair to
a wig maker and has her hair shorn on-screen. Her current look is the result of the shorn locks growing out and being reshaped.

The look is a near-traditional pixie cut, and is perfect for Hathaway’s clean complexion and delicate, symmetrical features.
Such a style is great for many women who have similar facial structures, and have balanced features. The style is low-maintenance, and one benefit is the need for
minimal amounts of products (shampoo, conditioner and styling products). The one consideration to consider is that the short style means that the hair will need more maintenance trimming if you want to keep it at this length.
It should be noted that the style may not be recommended for those who have prominent facial features (large noses, or protruding chins, etc.) or who may have sparse hair density.
