Do you think Kate Mara's new pixie crop is better than her bob?

Actress Kate Mara has long been one of our favorite bob wearing celebrities, styling her chin-grazing crop in all kinds of short hair updos, faux half hawks and effortless waves. Recently however, she ditched the most on-trend haircut of the moment for something shorter: a pixie crop! The question is, which hairstyle do you think Kate rocks best?

The pixie cut

With her new 'do, Kate Mara joins a stellar cast of pixie fans, including Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron, Kaley Cuoco, Ginnifer Goodwin and Scarlett Johansson. Not only is she in great company, she's also doing a great job of making a pixie crop look like the best possible hairstyle option!

Styling tip
When you get a really short haircut like a pixie, take care not to overload your strands with product when styling. It may sound obvious, but with less hair, you need less of everything and old habits die hard.

The bob

Bobs are timeless and Kate's blunt cut hairstyle was definitely one of our fave celebrity takes on the look. Her understated, chin-grazing cut was versatile and always impossibly pretty, whether she was running errands or posing on the red carpet.

Styling tip
Textured waves and piecey locks work beautifully with bob cuts. So, if you're wondering how to style a bob of your own, try experimenting with texturizing spray and pomade for a tousled, undone look.
