If you’re like us, you’re starting to crave music star Monica’s latest mane move… Popping up all over social media, including on Instagram (like this look the star posted recently), it’s a style that hits all the right marks for trendsetting this season. So where do we start? Let’s begin with the cut. Though she’s sported an array of lengths throughout her career, we can’t help but hold a soft spot for the short, pixie cut that’s become a Monica mane move trademark and serves to flatter her face to perfection. This version of the short snip adds just a tad more length through the crown so layers have the option of converting into bangs. Next is the color: red hot! This show-stopping scarlet is not for the shy. It’s a hue that’s both vibrant and rich (and requires a skilled colorist to craft!). Simply, gorgeous!
