Jennifer Lopez can sure pull off any look. For Allure's 30th Anniversary issue, Lopez rocks a pixie cut and fans went nuts. While it hasn't been confirmed if it's a wig, her hairstylist Chris Appleton hints that the drastic chop might be the real thing. While most people on Instagram agree that Lopez looks great with her new hairstyle, there are also those who disagree. One Instagram user says its Lopez's "worst shot ever," another points out that the singer-actress is "too strategic" to chop her hair off and one more echoes many fans' sentiment, "Please tell me that's a wig." Lopez's big reveal garnered nearly 700,000 likes and over 5000 comments on Instagram. Appleton's own post got over 70,000 likes and over 500 comments. The Zoe Report writes that as a style chameleon, it won't be a surprise if Lopez comes back with waist-long hair the next day.
You don't need Lopez's enviable jaw line to make a pixie cut look great. If you're considering going short for the spring and summer seasons, here are a few tips from L'oreal Paris before getting a pixie cut:
Going from long to super short can be exciting but also nerve wracking. L'oreal advices starting with a longer pixie and going shorter if you feel good about it. Cutting it very short right away mean you'll spend weeks growing out an unwanted haircut.

Keep in mind the maintenance.
Pixie cuts grow out faster than you think. If you love your new look and would like to keep it short, you'll have to get regular trims at the salon.
Work with your face shape.
When you finally get the nerve to go short, be open with your stylist. You can bring photos of models with similar face shapes as your own so your idea will come across clearly. For oval faces, any pixie cut will do well for you. For round faces, angled bangs will help balance your proportions. A shaggy pixie cut can soften the sharp edges of a square face and soft bangs will help round out a heart-shaped face.
Advantages of a pixie cut.
Your face will be front and center.
The right short haircut will bring out your best features. Playing with makeup to enhance your eyes and lips will be fun, too!
Washing and drying will be easier.
Think of the time you'll save in the shower. You'll also be using less hair products as well.
You can go crazy on the accessories.
As seen on Lopez's Allure Magazine cover, a pixie cut will allow you to show off great earrings. Since your neck will also be bare, you can fasten funky necklaces or multiple layers of more delicate pieces. Sometimes, fasteners can snag at the hair by your neck so that certainly won't be a problem now.
No matter how you style your pixie cut, one thing that we can always learn from Jennifer Lopez is confidence. Even if you end up hating it, just emulate Lopez and rock it.
