If you’ve ever doubted the versatility of a pixie cut, Kate Mara’s many short styles are here to set you straight. The actress has been switching up her short ‘do all summer, and we’re obsessed!

Kate Mara, 32, quite possibly has the best pixie cut we’ve ever seen. The Fantastic Four star took her lob to a pixie earlier this summer, and ever since, has been showing off an array of styling options to complement her red carpet looks. Keep reading for pixie styling tips, and let us know if you’re loving Kate’s short hair as much as we are.

Classic Crop: While promoting Fantastic Four, Kate channeled an old Hollywood favorite, Audrey Hepburn, by wearing her hair parted to the side and brushing her bangs across her forehead. Copy the look by using a flat iron to straighten your hair (if your hair is naturally curly) and a styling cream like Bumble and Bumble Grooming Creme to give a light hold to your style with a smooth finish. To match the classic hairstyle, copy Kate’s soft makeup and delicate earring combo for a feminine look.


Add Some Edge: Kate also sported a piecey, textured style, which she paired with a slight smokey eye for an edgier effect. Spray Living Proof Instant Texture Mist throughout damp hair, and blow dry for volume.
