Cameron Diaz is proof rules are meant to be broken. Usually bobs and short cuts in general don't look good on round face shapes, but this particular bob looks fantastic on Cameron Diaz, who has a natural round face. Why? Her side-swept bangs add angles to her hairstyle and her hair is very straight so it doesn't add width to the sides of her head. Note the absolutely gorgeous blonde hair color she has here. Trust me, it's not natural.

But going short isn't for the faint of heart. Diaz revealed in early 2012 on the Jay Leno Show that she wasn't very happy with her short bob when she first got it. Turns out it was much shorter than she expected.

"I just burst into tears and started crying, and I felt so vulnerable," Diaz told Leno. Apparently, Diaz was so upset, she yelled, which made her stylist cry. "I ended up writing her a few emails after, the next couple days, assuring her I wasn't going to kill her," Diaz said.

Well, she must have grown used to her hair because she got it lopped off in January, 2012, and she's still wearing it short almost a year later.
