Long locks vs. short cuts
Which look looks better on these stars?


Rihanna: Better Long

The singer changes her hairstyle just about as often as she changes her clothes. From short to long to blonde to black, RiRi loves to switch it up.

On Wednesday, she displayed a shorter pixie cut with short bangs. She certainly has the gorgeous face to pull it off, but the jury is still out on this cut. We had just found ourselves getting used to her longer look.

Check out these other stars and decide whether they look better long or short.

Anne Hathaway: Better Long

The engaged actress was asked to cut her hair and lose weight for her current role in "Les Miserables."

We prefer it a little longer, but she has beautiful features, so either look works for the petite actress. But, alas, not all stars are that lucky.

Jen Aniston HAIR

Jennifer Aniston: Better Long

As Rachel Green on "Friends" Jennifer Anistion set the standards for trendy hair for years. 

Whether long or short, she looks great in whichever style moves her. But we can't help but love her with her signature long, California-girl locks.




Beiber Long or short

Justin Beiber: Better Short

Justin became famous for his long shaggy 'do, but now that he's been on the scene for awhile, we prefer the shorter, more mature look... Minus the crazy eyes, of course.




Matt Damon Hair

Matt Damon: Better Short

For the "Bourne" trilogy Matt often kept his hair short and tidy, but some roles call for a longer more mature look. We like it spiky. 


Paltrow HAIR

Gwyneth Paltrow: Better Long

Gwyneth's sleek golden locks look best long. 



Emma short of long

Emma Watson: Better Long

The "Harry Potter" cutie looks much older in her cropped 'do. It looks more playful and age appropriate when it's long.




Jessica Alba: Better Short

The gorgeous actress has such a tiny frame and features that she gets drowned out in long hair. The short sleek look is perfect on her.


Williams hair

Michelle Williams: Better Short

The "Blue Valentine" star has one of those faces that is better served with less hair getting in the way. 


Ashlee Simpson: Better Long

Is there no in between for this petite songstress? Ashlee either goes for dramatic dark lengths or a short bleached 'do. A softer color with the longer locks would be best.



Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes: Better Long

Mrs. Cruise is a real testament to the power of hair extensions. Katie, who has been looking increasingly tired and old lately, showed up for the Japan premiere of Valkyrie looking young, radiant, and like her former self again thanks to some faux locks.

Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker: Better Long

Longer locks are the way to go for Sarah Jessica Parker, whose features looked overly harsh against her bob 'do.

Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton: Better Long

To disguise her bird-like features, Paris Hilton needs to abandon the soccer-mom hair-do's and should always keep some extensions on hand.

Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz: Better Short

A short bob is the way to go for Cameron and really flatters her exotic facial features.

Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson: Better Long

Jessica Simpson needs to stay true to her Texas roots when it comes to her locks by keeping that big hair big!

Halle Berry

Halle Berry: Better Short

Due to her ridiculously gorgeous face, Halle Berry is one of the few women who can successfully pull off a super short 'do.

Britney Spears

Britney Spears: Tie

Whether she has short hair, long hair, or hair in between, we're happy as long as Britney is healthy and smiling. And not bald.

Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham: Better Short 

A fierce, edgy short style goes perfectly with Victoria's overall fierceness.

Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley: Better Long

Keira Knightley is gorgeous no matter what, but that short pixie cut was just disastrous.
