In case you hadn’t noticed, short hair can be goals too. It’s striking, low maintenance and ultra-fabulous. It’s why we brought Mzansi the likes of the Oprah, Cara and Roxy Wig. From local to international shores, these celebs are onto this short and sassy crop. Here are a few of our favourites.

Thando Thabethe

don’t call her Thabooty for nothing

They don’t call her Thabooty for nothing! This rich, red shade is a luxurious way to bring a little more glamour to a shorter style like this one. With added volume and texture, Thando looks feminine and fierce. We love the soft waves and how they frame her face. It’s beautiful and sexy. So that’s a yes from us.

DJ Zinhle

rsz_dj_zinhle_and_daughterThese days, she loves to wear longer weaves. Right now, we’re going to take a minute to remember when Zee rocked this look. Not only is she a killer on the decks but she’s also a supermom. We’ve always respected her for her fashion choices but this one is a stand out for us. We love the side parting and how a few subtle waves keep her hair looking fresh and flirty.

Lizah James

Seeing spiralsMozambique’s very own shows us how to work those spiral curls. Lizah levels up her look with a sassy and equally sexy wig. With enough texture to turn heads, this one reminds us a little of our Oprah wig, which is slightly longer than Lizah’s look here. As you can see, it’s perfect for everyday wear as well as for those special occasions when you need to dress up. With this look, she represents Mozambique with flames.

This look is EVERYTHING. From the colour to the asymmetrical cut, we can’t get enough of B in this pic. We also love the fade of her colour and how it darkens towards her face. The length hits just under her chin, making her face look longer and more angular. Yaaaaaas kween!

Kerry Washington


Hollywood’s golden girl Kerry has been known to wow with shorter styles. This look is no different. She delivers with this futuristic bob combined with a thick fringe. It’s modern, striking and the perfect amount of chic. Can we also just talk about this dress and how it accentuates her curves in all the right places. Slay, Kerry!

Viola Davis

rsz_viva_violaAs a superstar who needs no introduction, Viola is also one of our short hairstyle icons. She’s rocked several fire looks over the years but this one has got to be one of our favourites. An added side swept fringe makes her look youthful and feminine. The texture at the ends of the hair stops her look from getting too boring or appearing flat. It’s a red carpet look that delivers. We also love the rich metallics of this dress.
