Ginnifer Goodwin: 'Everything Goes with Short Hair'

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.”

True, but I still like her long hair as Snow White

christa on

But not with those ears.

sally on

I think she is homely!

Daia S. on

I do not like her haircut.Longer hair suited her better.

Miriam on

I love her hair – especially with those ears! She almost looks like a fairy.

me on

It suits her. . .but I still think she looks better with longer hair.

Jenno on

I think she’s so adorable and unique. She does her own thing and doesn’t seem to follow others.

kinsey on

he hair cut is hidious! your a girl, girls are meant to have long hair and she looks like a boy. she has the worst fashion sense ever…i look at her as a disappointment to the fashion and acting world

Liz on

Stop trying to make short hair happen!

Rhonda on

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.

Sammy on

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

Debs on

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.

Clara on

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

prid2609 on

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.

emmab73 on

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.

paisley on

She is absolutley adorable! L-O-V-E her!

Emma on

what in the h.e.ll is is yammering about?!?

Tara on

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.

Sara on

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

Not bad on

I love her short hair, I think it suits her perfectly. I think she is very pretty, and love that she isn’t your typical Hollywood beauty.
And Kinsey, are women only allowed to wear dresses and stay home with their babies too?

Adele T. on

I think she looks much more striking and original with short hair. It fits her features. And for those who think women should not have short hair – what about Audrey Hepburn? A classy, beautiful woman with a pixie cut.

Vanessa on

I absolutely love Ginnifer Goodwin in Once Upon A Time, but really don’t like the pixi cut on her… mostly because she looks absolutely gorgeous with long hair on the show!

I love her short hair! I think it looks great on her.

I love the short haircut- she is a risk taker and makes a great statement and always wears great fashions-YEAH!

flh76 on

I LOVE her cut. I have the same cut. It takes confidence to rock short hair like that. The same old long, Barbie hair dos are BORING. Everyone has that…

She looks adorable.

Tim on

I have something long that would go great with her short hair!

Rhonda on

She always looks great with short hair. She can definitely pull it off

Sarah on

I don’t like it. I don’t like short hair on a woman. I know it’s 2012, but I think women should still try to be feminine with long natural hair. Not bleached blonde and not the color of a Muppet, like Katy Perry. That’s ridiculous!

everyone does not have the head for short hair – I certainly don’t – imo, that style is too short.

Sandravette on

I personally think that she looks lovely. Very adorable :)
I’ve seen her with long hair, and her face seems more soft and unique when accentuated by her short cut.
I like my own hair long…..but some people, their face goes better with shorter hair.

kinsey on

well rhonda I’m not a idiot but thanks for your imput i don’t like it so get over it, i don’t think it suits her and thats what i think

Anonymous on

Long hair flatters round faces better. Short hair flatters long faces. I think she’s cute, but that hair is just too short on her.

wow on

Wow…..jealous much?? It would be soo entertaining to see pics of the posters calling Gennifer “homely”.

Anne on

Liz: Really?! Stop trying to “make it happen”? It’s already happened! Mia Farrow rocked short hair forty years ago. Halle Berry has worn her hair short many times over her career. I praise Ginnifer’s boldness, and she’s brave to wear her hair short when so many women hide behind their long hair. Short hair is not for everyone. But just because a woman wears her hair short doesn’t make her look masculine. Good for Ginnifer…not clinging to long hair as a definition of beauty or appeal.
