Celeb Hairstyle of the Week: Jennifer Hudson

It seems like a new celeb chops her hair into an on-trend pixie cut every week these days! The once drastic 'do now seems so much more approachable thanks to these trendy ladies and their expert styling teams. I spotted Jennifer Hudson sporting her fairly new pixie recently and asked Nick Penna, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Boston's Be Styled, for some tips on how to get the piecey look. Have fun styling, ladies!

"The pixie cut is all over Hollywood right now and Jennifer Hudson is the latest celeb to chop it all off! I actually really love this look on Jennifer because she has the perfect bone structure for this cut and totally kills it. Many people think you are limited with styling a short 'do but Jennifer has been styling the cut spiky, sleek and even straight like the image shown — she should stick with this cut!" Nick says.

  1. One of the major benefits of this hot new cut is the easy maintenance when it comes to styling. Begin with wet hair and grab your blow dryer.
  2. For this look, use your hands as the brush and finger dry hair in the desired direction until the hair is dry.
  3. To finish the look, use a nickel-size amount of Short Mania by Kerastase. Start at the crown of the head and work the pomade forward toward the bangs to create an "imperfect" look like Jennifer’s.
