Maggie Gyllenhaal

Maggie Gyllenhaal stepped out with a shorter ‘do a few weeks ago, a look she chose unintentionally. “I did a film in Ireland with Michael Fassbender and I cut it in a bowl cut for that,” the 35-year-old told to reporters at the New York launch party for Kate Young’s collection for Target. “It was awesome for the movie, but then when I was home I couldn’t make it work!” The Brooklyn resident then enlisted New York hairstylist Serge Normant to remedy her situation. “I walked into his salon and said, ‘Can you fix it?’ and it came out looking like this.” And this isn’t the first time she’s been a member of the Pixie Party. “When I was about 25, I had really short hair, and I loved it, but I always thought I would never do it again,” Gyllenhaal continued. “But it feels great to have short hair! And it’s nice now that the weather’s gotten warm.” Not to mention, it also looks fabulous.
