Check out Kate Winslet’s adorable new platinum pixie cut!

Kate Winslet has traded in her long blond hair for a new short platinum ‘do!

She shows off her shocking new look in the April issue of British Vogue.

In the revealing interview, she opens up about her recent divorce from husband Sam Mendes. She also opens up about her famous curves,

“I was a lot more voluptuous when I was younger,” she says. “I felt I had to defend my body, and took a very public stand, which I still absolutely believe in. But I’ve stopped talking about it now. And, at a certain point, it does become hypocritical.” Now, at 35, the actress is into Pilates and running, “not very well, I might add,” but mainly keeps busy by raising her children, 10-year-old Mia and 7-year-old Joe.

However, that doesn’t mean the mom can’t have some fun! In the accompanying photos, shot by Mario Testino, Winslet works that hair — and looks divine. “I’m embarking on a new chapter in my adult life,” she shares. “And I’m single. And it doesn’t scare me at all.”

What do you think of her new look? (I love it, not gonna lie!)

HOW TO:

1. Begin by parting the hair down the center and apply Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume Styling Whip to the hair from roots ends

2. Blow-dry the hair using Fekkai Round Brush.

3. Next, pull hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck, making sure to cover the ears.

4. Then twist the ponytail into a loose knot.

5. The key is keeping it loose for a touch of bohemian flair. It’s almost like a draping around the face with wispy pieces of hair coming outsoftly.

6. Finish the look by spraying the Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray.

INSPIRATION: Duffy sought to bring out ‘the real Scarlett Johansson’ by creating a young, sexy, modern shag with dry texture.

Details on Jennifer Aniston’s new cut!

Jennifer Aniston caused quite a commotion when she showed up in Spain earlier this week with a new sexy bob!

Aniston’s longtime stylist Chris McMillan shared his method behind the hair change-up with Allure.com. “It was just time for a change,” McMillan said. “We had a blast doing it. And we’ve always liked this haircut. It’s about keeping things simple.” But why a bob? “I’m loving bobs again,” he explained, citing the recent styles featured by fashion houses like YSL and Celine. “It’s a sexy look.” But could it be that the real inspiration also had something to do with reality TV? Just ask McMillan. “The reason that I’m loving a bob at the moment… There are so many long, layered hairstyles and—don’t get me wrong, I love that. But The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills all have that. You know what I mean? And what’s the opposite direction you can go in.”

I love it! What do you think?
