If you're thinking about getting a short cut but aren't 100% sure, one lady that can help you out is none other than supermodel and lipstick connoisseur Coco Rocha. With her short, sleek bob, the soon-to-be published author perfectly demonstrates how a dramatic cut can look 50 shades of fantastic. She also proves to us all that short doesn't necessarily equate to limited styling options. In fact, your options are anything but limited - they're just quicker to achieve!

In the gallery above, you'll find some of Coco's best looks. Who knows, maybe you'll get inspired to try something similar yourself...

Versatile bob

Bob cuts are perpetually on-trend because so much can be done with them. From soft waves to a sleek, blunt finish, you won't get bored with a bob.

How to style soft waves
To replicate Coco's gorgeous waves, simply use a medium-sized curling iron - about 1 1/2" - to make some waves, brush your hair through then mist with a finishing spray. If you want a more textured result, spray dry hair with salt spray and pin it up in large twisted pieces. Shake your hair out after 15-20 minutes and scrunch some wax through the ends to complete the look.

How to style a sleek finish
To recreate Coco's vintage 1920s-inspired look, apply a straightening cream or spray then flat iron, curving the hair around your face. When you're done, apply a serum to keep frizz and flyaways at bay and mist with a high-shine finishing spray.

Wet look

Not for the fainthearted, wet look hair is all about getting noticed, something Coco Rocha does professionally. She's so good at it that we're actually starting to believe that slick, high-shine locks make for a wearable, not to mention undeniably sexy, night out look.

How to style wet look hair
Brush your hair back and part it on whichever side you like best. Apply some regular-strength gel evenly throughout, using a wide-tooth comb for even distribution. When you're happy with the amount of shine and hold, sculpt as desired with your hands.

What do you think? Will you be following in Coco's footsteps?
