Rihanna is back to rocking a cropped coif.

The day before the MTV Video Music Awards, Rihanna debuted a short pixie haircut. The hairstyle was smooth and striking, and the Neil Lane earrings provided an old-school glamorous quality to this look.

As her stylist Ursula Stephan explains, "We had been talking about going short for a little while now and actually planned to do it the following week, but I just felt like, why wait? Let's do it today! And Ri said the same thing. She was ready for her short hair again!"

Who else is going short?

Miley Cyrus

Miley's new short platinum blonde cropped hairdo has been a prominent topic of conversation in recent weeks. Fans seem to be divided about whether or not they like this new look.

However, fiance Liam Hemsworth is totally supportive of it. As she explains, "My fiance loves it. He's totally for it. He likes just being able to see my face. He thinks it suits me so much."

Vanessa Hudgens

The "Spring Breakers" actress didn't exactly cut off all her hair, but she did rock the faux bob look this week at the 69th Venice Film Festival. We love this sassy fun look!

Elisabeth Moss

Last month, the "Made Men" star showed up at the NYC premiere of "For a Good Time, Call" with a new hairdo. She shed her chin-length brunette locks in favor of a very short and very blonde style.

As she explains, "I wanted to do something really different,"

So far, she's having more fun as a blonde. However, she's still not able to go incognito. "People still recognize me because I always looked so different from [her TV character] Peggy before,"

John Mayer

After breaking up with Katy Perry, John decided to make another change. Last month, he showed up at a gathering to celebrate Mindy Kaling's new show, "The Mindy Project." He cut off his long curly locks in favor of a short wavy hairdo that he wore spiked.

Anne Hathaway

Back in April, Anne chopped off her hair in order to prepare for her role as Fantine in the movie version of "Les Miserables." However, this new haircut is affecting her life off-screen as well as on-screen.

"The Devil Wears Prada" star decided to postpone her wedding to Adam Shulman because she did not want to get married in a short pixie haircut. As an inside source explains, "She wanted to get married this year, but she had to cut her hair short for Les Miserables and she's waiting for it to grow back."
