Short must be the new long! In a summary of 2011?s stellar style, the Wall Street Journal named Emma Watson‘s pixie and Justin Bieber‘s ‘swish’ the most influential haircuts of the year.
“Hairstylists are being inundated with requests,” the paper reports. “The enthusiasm plays out online, where the fastest-rising searches for celebrity haircuts on Google are for Ms. Watson and Mr. Bieber.”
According to the Journal, these looks mark a pretty significant change for hairstyle popularity, since for women, “short hair hasn’t been trendy since the ’90s,” and because men “may justifiably feel sheepish about asking for the cut.” (Tell that to the Biebs!)
