Read the article below to find out 3 hairstyles that are hot this year!

See which suits you and dare to make a change.

The Pixie

Audrey Hepburn was the original celebrity with pixie hair and Mia Farrow popularized the look in the 60s. In the past few months, pixie hair has "cropped up" on a host of stylish singers and actresses including Michelle Williams, Ginnifer Goodwin, Emma Watson, Carey Mulligan, Halle Berry and most recently Kate Winslet.

So can you get away with this cut?

The pixie works best on women with thick, naturally wavy hair, but also looks good on women with straight hair.

Avoid the pixie if you have a long face - the pixie will only make your face appear longer.
So, who looks good in pixie hair?Women with heart-shaped, square and oval faces. It's a good cut for women with round faces, too, just be sure to add some volume to the top of your head.

The Bob

The bob remains a popular hairstyle;

in fact, it's so hot that Alexa Chung has just cut off her signature shag for a chin-grazing bob curled under. This season's bob has a bit of edge to it. The hot bobs this year are messy, a bit tousled but they all end at the chin or just below it. Add in blunt bangs or fringe for a really edgy look.

So, who can wear the bob?

Anyone with a nice jawline and neck will look good in a bob. If you have a round face, a long bob is a better option for you. As for hair texture, bobs work best on thin to medium hair. Stay away from short hair if you have coarse or curly hair, a bob will only puff out on you.

The Demi-Bob

The long bob has been around for a few seasons and it's still just as hot this year but it has a new name -- the demi-bob.

According to Vogue Magazine, which named this a hot trend, it's a bob that falls anywhere between the mid-neck and the shoulders. It's also been seen on many actresses and models this season as everyone seems to have gotten sick of their long, tousled waves at the same time. Jennifer Aniston famously cut off her long famous locks in February.

Everyone looks good in a long bob so have at it, but be sure to abide by the rules of this haircut:

Longer bobs can be bland if too blunt.
Stacked layers in the back with a bit of backcombing while styling add dimension. Add fringe or thick bangs for a real retro-70s look.

-A bob can't be too layered, or it's not a bob.
Gwyneth's demi-bob here is more edgy because the stylist thinned out the ends with scissors or a razor. But this year's bob isn't too blunt, either. Leave it wavy and mussed, blown dried under or flipped out 60's style.

The long bob works best on straight and wavy hair but it looks good on all hair textures (even curly).
It's a versatile cut because you can wear it air-dried or flat-ironed.
