Mastering a pixie cut like Ginnifer Goodwin‘s is a cinch — just ask the actress herself.

“People say it’s a difficult hairstyle to pull off, but I don’t see how it is tricky,” the Once Upon a Time star told PEOPLE on Thursday at the Young Hollywood Awards in Los Angeles.

“I have very curly hair and I straighten it every day — it takes maybe two minutes. I can’t imagine anyone having a bigger challenge than I do in the kinkiness that is my crazy ‘fro,” she added.

Aside from how easy the ‘do is to manage, Goodwin said the hairstyle lets her be more flexible when it comes to fashion.

“I can wear far more with short hair than I could when I had [long] hair,” she said while donning a white lace Monique Lhuillier dress. “Everything goes with short hair. It’s bananas.”

The style-savvy starlet also named some designers she’s currently loving. “I’m very excited about what Jason Wu has coming out,” Goodwin revealed. “I’ve been fairly impressed with Jonathan Saunders, and I’ve been wearing a whole lot of [the line]. I think the same about Preen as well.”

Added the actress, who wore bright pink lipstick and said she’s a fan of the neon trend, “The fashion industry is growing and changing and taking risks. I’m excited about all of the shapes and colors.”

Kinsey you sound like an idiot. Not all women can grow their hair long. Girls are supposed to have the hair length that they want. She does not look like a boy and I think that pixie cut is cute on her.

i love the short hair on her. She rocks it very well!

She looks so much better with short hair, so pretty, I like that she does her own thing and does not cave into the “trends” although I think short hair is a great new trend.

You can just wear your hair curly, it’s nothing to be ashamed of.

You people are jerks. How can you say anyone is homely? She’s beautiful. My gosh all the haters make me sick. That is EXACTLY what is wrong today. People judging people.

Kinsey, I have to ask, are you aware that it’s 2012 and not 1950?! Who on earth ever made up the rule that girls have to have long hair? I respect the fact that Ginnifer isn’t your favourite, but to dictate that she has to have long hair just because she’s a woman is so archaic. Personally, I love Ginnifer and think she’s quirky and funky, and I admire her individuality.

So cute! I’ve always loved shorter hair and I think she’s absolutely wonderful.

And by reading some of your comments, you’re idiots.

Homely? I think she’s gorgeous and I love her with short hair.
