When it comes to pulling off a fabulous short cut, you know music star Monica will never let us down! Witness the star’s latest hip snip—from all angles (thank you Monica!!!)—as posted on the star’s Instagram.  So let’s dissect the look, shall we? Sideswept, long bangs spring from a low part which then morph into a close-cropped and slicked down profile while the back flaunts a hint of length.  Our favorite detail: Since the part is so low, and one side is slicked down solid, longer lengths in the back  give off a “Mohawk-ish” vibe. Do you love it?
