Before and after the big chop
Is it just us, or has Hollywood gone scissor crazy? Only last week did Beyoncé unveil her new cropped hairdo, and now catwalk queen Coco Rocha has taken the plunge, too.

Clever stuff, Coco. The model said, “With my job, my hair is constantly dyed and fried and it won’t grow any longer, so I decided it was time to get rid of it,” she told Allure, the American magazine invited to watch the hair-cutting experience.
Tempted to jump on the pixie bandwagon? Celebrity hairdresser Richard Ward stresses the importance of having a consultation prior to the big cut: “When it comes to cropped hair, having a consultation with your hairdresser first is so important, as this style doesn’t suit every face shape (oval is best). Once you commit to this style, there’s not much hair to hide behind!” In that case, full marks to Miss Rocha- we’re loving your new ‘do...
