Short hairstyles: Alice Eve and her mid-length haircut compromise

by Kathy Saunders - Tuesday April 30, 2013 - 10h00

If you're still undecided about whether or not to join in with the short haircut revolution that's taking both the celebrity and real world by storm, "Star Trek Into Darkness" actress Alice Eve might just have a hairstyle solution for you. Rather than go for a short cut, she instead has her blonde hair in a mid-length bob.

It's still short, just not short short... but kind of short.

Mid-length hairstyles like Alice's are the perfect way to get a new, noticably shorter hairstyle without having to get extreme with the amount you get chopped off. It really is the middle ground of hairstyles. Plus, a long bob - especially with a thick fringe and blunt lines - can make a real statement!

The other rather brilliant thing about a mid-length cut, as Alice herself proved very recently, is that there's still enough length to create an impressive updo! So, those braided crowns and Hollywood-inspired chignons won't be out of reach for you if you decide on a halfway haircut like this!

And, of course, the regualr, everyday hairstyles such as ponytails and topknots will remain staple looks for those less than motivated days...

The best of all worlds? Probably.

So, if you're feeling brave enough, get out there and get a new haircut!
