Several stars hit the red carpet at the Oscars 2017 in gorgeous hairstyles—Emma Roberts’ red hair, Charlize Theron’s chic ponytail, Taraji P. Henson’s curls, the list goes on and on. But Janelle Monáe’s new pixie cut is quite possibly our favorite. It’s a supershort cut that that shows off her high cheekbones and perfect brows.
TBH, we aren’t sure if it’s a wig or if she really cut her hair (we’re secretly hoping she chopped it off) but her hairstylist, Nikki Nelms posted a photo of the singer on the red carpet with the caption, “The Oscar Chop!!!!!,” so we’re pretty sure it’s a RL cut.
Admittedly, we aren’t used to seeing Monáe with straight hair because she’s worn her natural curls on almost every red carpet, but it’s such a great look on her and we’re wondering if it’s a look we can pull off too.
Best of all, the singer didn’t stop with a piece-y, short style, Monáe punctuated the look with a stunning gold Artemesia crown by Jennifer Behr that screamed royalty.
