Kelly Osbourne has been a little bit under the radar lately, and by the looks of it, she has been spending this below the surface time to clean up her look. She has always to me been such a mystical goth creature, hasn’t she? And her excessive use of red lipstick has always annoyed me. But it looks like Kelly has taken a few tips from a personal stylist and she is looking….dare I say chic?
She has chopped off her medium length brunette locks to go for a contemporary twist on the school boy cut, much like Posh Spice and Katie Holmes. And yes, she is even looking more svelte these days as well with a killer figure that is complemented well in her gorgeous Roland Mouret dress. The Schoolboy cut is all the rage in Hollywood right now, and the neat thing about this cut is that it is different for everyone. Posh, Katie Holmes, Pink, Agyness Deyn, Rihanna, are all sporting popular versions of the cut that Twiggy and Goldie Hawn made famous back in the day.
The key to this look, and why it works so well on so many different celebs, is that you need to have the right kind of stylist to produce the necessary texture and movement that will complement your face shape. The Schoolboy crop CAN work on any face, it is how you play with your features and your hair that will make the difference. If you are working with a rounder face, you want your stylist to cut longer wisps in the front, and these longer wisps can be swept aside for a night out with a smidge of pomade.
For the more narrow face, have the sides of your crop cut close to the head, as long layers and texture here will only elongate your face even further. But if you are aching for shorter and more chic locks like all of Tinseltown seems to be sporting these days, don’t let your face shape mislead you. Anyone can rock the slick chop, it’s all in how your stylist works with your face shape and your hair that will make all of the difference.
