Elle Fanning – Short Hair

Elle Fanning - Short Red Crew Cut - 20141204

Short Red Crew Cut

We had to search long and hard for this one! Elle Fanning has worn her hair long for years. This cut and color were for her role as a teenager transitioning from a female to a male in the film “Three Generations.” Many speculated that she actually cut and colored her hair, but it seems to be a really convincing wig, as she was photographed several weeks later with her usual long blonde hair.

Hairstyles with Bangs

Long Blonde Wig/Bangs

Hairstylist: Jenda

Maleficent actress Elle Fanning attended the Third Annual InStyle Awards with a wig with bangs styled by celebrity hairstylist Jenda.

OK. Let’s be clear. Nobody is admitting that Elle is wearing a wig in the photo above. It certainly looks like one from where I’m sitting. If I’m wrong, then at the very least, these are faux bangs because she attended the Billboard Women in Music Awards thirty days later with her “bangs” all grown out.
