Michelle Williams' Pixie Cut with Long Front Layers

There’s an epidemic sweeping Hollywood, an epidemic of vast and fashionably sweeping proportions.  It seems that starlets everywhere are taking their luscious locks (and long, long extensions) to the chopping block.  And while I’m not exactly brave enough to try on this bold styling myself – I’m hoping to one day soon, pluck up my courage, waltz into my stylist and demand that she start chopping.

From Carey Mulligan’s bold, blond and downright Farrow-esque (as in Mia) pixie cut at last years award shows to what might be the loveliest transition phase ever to grace the red-carpet, Ms. Mulligan is building her reputation as a trend-setter as fast as she’s building her resume as a superb actress.

Another more-recent convert to the short is chic club is Ms. Mulligan’s equally style-blazing friend, Keira Knightly, who heated up the blogosphere last month by unveiling a stylishly face-framing bob at Paris’ Fashion Week.  And if ever a face deserved to be framed… am I right?

Ginnifer Goodwin is another fashion darling who’s rock-n-roll pixie cut is set to grace the cover of In-Style’s UK November issue.  In my eye’s this gal can do no wrong and her shagged and tousled short-do is just further proof that she is a gal moving fashion forward.

If these gals are the harbingers of what’s hot for hair right now – the obvious answer is to get ourselves to our hair-stylists lose a little length.

The question then, ladies, is this: Would you?  Could you?  Did you?
