Several stars hit the red carpet at the Oscars 2017 in gorgeous hairstyles—Emma Roberts’s red hair, Charlize Theron’s chic ponytail, Taraji P. Henson’s curls, the list goes on and on. But Janelle Monáe’s new pixie cut is quite possibly our favorite. It’s a supershort cut that shows off her high cheekbones and perfect brows.
Her hairstylist, Nikki Nelms posted a photo of the singer on the red carpet with the caption, “The Oscar Chop!!!!!,” and it’s pretty amazing.
“Janelle wanted a cut so I gave her one,” said Nelms. “I’m thankful that she trusts me with such major red carpet moments like the Oscars.”
Admittedly, we aren’t used to seeing Monáe with straight hair because she’s worn her natural curls on almost every red carpet, but it’s such a great look on her and we’re wondering if we can pull it off, too.
Best of all, the singer didn’t stop with a piece-y, short style, Monáe punctuated the look with a stunning gold Artemesia crown by Jennifer Behr that screamed royalty. Nelms used very little products for the cut, but her hero product was Sebastian shaper plus extra hold hairspray.
