The Most Pinned Short Hairstyles of 2015
There’s no denying that 2015 was the year short hair had a moment. Countless celebrities chopped off once-long locks into lobs and bobs, and some even went next level with super short crops. (Lara Worthington, we’re looking at you.) As we roll into 2016, it seems like long hair is suddenly in the minority, where just few seasons ago a pixie cut would have stood out like Ugg boots on Bondi Beach.
While we’ve definitely taken the trend on board in a very big way—the Who What Wear Australia team boasts an 80 per cent rate of short styles), there are still women keen to get amongst. As with all beauty trends, there’s nowhere better to look for inspiration than Pinterest, so we hit up our pals at the photo sharing site for the intel on the most Pinned short hairstyles of 2015 for your viewing pleasure. On the list are a few obvious inclusions (see: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s chin-skimming cut and Gigi Hadid’s faux chop), but there are a few surprises too—especially, a '60s-style bouffant courtesy of A-List stylist Paloma Rose Garcia.

Again with the tousle, this time in the form of a piece-y cut with a brow-skimming fringe. Where the Pin above was all about the beachy wave, this style is more cool-girl in that it doesn't look laboured over. To get a similar look, create a "bend" at the mid-lengths to ends with a hair straightener.
Jennifer Lawrence is a major source of short hair styling ideas, and this slightly dishevelled platinum bob is cream of the crop. The genius lies in the play between centre part and softly teased roots, and those gently textured ends.
Now THIS is a statement style. Created by celebrity hairstylist Paloma Rose Garcia, it's a '60s-inspired dream. If this chop looks a little high maintenance, you can get a similar graphic effect with a blunt bob that has soft layers on top.
Ah Rosie, the Queen of pouty lips and always-amazing hair. This side-flipped, sun-kissed combo is stellar; ask for long layers and textured ends for a similar look. (And while you're at it, peep this post for a how-to on her creamy blonde highlights.)
We'd bet there's not much about styling hair that Christina Butcher of Hair Romance doesn't know. The blogger is known for her killer hair tutorials, and this one—for a faux bob a la Gigi Hadid—is easy to follow, and perfect for thicker hair types.
