We’ve all seen it in real time, and now it can be officially declared: short haircuts swept style inspiration left and right this year. With the like of style icons and celebrities like Zendaya, Florence Pugh and Dua Lipa all opting for the chop in the last month of 2021, we started the year off with short hair and it looks like we’ll end the year on the same exact note.

Short haircuts are coveted due to a simple fact: they are low maintenance while still packing a chic and stylish punch. In a year where access to regular hair appointments and upkeep can seem like a monumental task, both emotionally and logistically, it’s only logical to opt for a style you can do yourself, at home and with minimal effort.

In this case of celebrity trends, it’s actually quite accessible compared to other, more involved trends that involve large sums of money and a 10-person styling team to simply get ready in the morning.

We’ve decided to compile this year’s top celebrity short hair styles in case you’re looking to change things up for 2022 and need some extra inspiration when you hit the salon.
