It takes guts (or what we call "chutzpah" here in New York) to go really short, but as you will see from this photo gallery, the results can be very, very cool.

Whether you're seeking a cut that's sexy or funky or sweet, there are many, many cuts available to you. To find out what short cuts look best on you, I suggest checking out this slideshow: Photos: Best Cuts By Face Shape and this article, Short Hairstyles: Which Work Best With Your Face Shape?.

Let's start with Michelle Williams's pixie hairstyle, which she's back to wearing after a brief growing out period that was either just too awkward to endure, or just not right for Williams. She looks so darling in the pixie and it just so happens to be the most requested hairstyle in US salons, according to Elle Magazine. Williams talked to Elle UK about her super popular hairstyle (which she surely didn't know has since become very popular among American women).

"I feel like myself with short hair. And it's been a really long time since I had long hair, five years. Of course, the only people who like it are gay men and my girlfriends. Straight men across the board are not into this hair. I cut it for the one straight man who has ever liked short hair and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it," Williams said to Elle.

It seems women do really love the cut, because it's hugely popular.
