Long hair Shayk is no longer, and the dramatic change to a sleek, angular bob is for the better. TBH, when you have a breathtaking bone structure like this do you even need hair to begin with?!?

Kunis' deep side part stylizes this cut so easily by adding structure. If you're sick of a straight-edge lob, get a little risqué with a shorter cut on one side.

Some extra styling, like a half bun à la Gossip Girl's Meester, takes the guesswork out of how to make a look your own. Plus, it'll show off your hair color if you also have ombré dip-dyed ends.
