Zoe Saldana understands the power of transformation—she underwent a five-hour paint job on a daily basis for her latest role as the electric-green Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy. “What your eye can see, yourself becomes,” the starlet noted in an earlier interview with Style.com. Yesterday in Los Angeles, Saldana skipped the full-body metamorphosis and switched up her look with a simple, quick change. She started out with her signature medium-length waves for an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and a few hours later sported a cropped cut for a red-carpet premiere. The trick to going from long to short sans scissors? The faux bob. With the help of a few strategically placed hairpins, pulling off this special effect is simple and perfect for commitment-phobes who want to test-drive losing their length or just keep cool when the heat is on. Even better, it doesn’t require frequent trips to the salon for trims—a fact that has deterred the low-maintenance Saldana from a permanent chop in the past. They say that blonds have more fun, but we think a summer without sweaty strands on your neck sounds pretty damn good, too.
Hair was piling up on the floor backstage at Anthony Vaccarello when I came upon mane master Anthony Turner’s station. He was carving his way around the head of Brit beauty Sam Rollinson. “He said, ‘Listen, I really, really, really need Sam in the show, but I prefer her hair how it was,’” Turner said of his conversation with the designer. “The only way to get around that was a wig.” Over her twenties bob sat an updated version of her previous “hard-lined, seventies bowl,” but this time it was more “aggressive” and “rock ‘n’ roll.” Choppy, “chewed-up” layers were snipped in the same vein as short-haired catwalkers like Edie Campbell (who inspired the Joan Jett-esque shags at Marc Jacobs a few seasons ago). “I was thinking if I had got the chance to cut Sam’s hair for real, how would I do it. Now I have the chance to do just that,” explained Turner. “It’s very deconstructed, a bit all over the place—almost as if she’s done it herself,” he said of the final result. As for Rollinson, she’s ready to sport this style for longer than ten minutes (the approximate length of a runway show). “I really like it, it’s really cool,” she said of her new crop. Turner’s last piece of advice to the model who is planning to grow her hair out: “Let me cut it for you next time.”
Toni Garrn Left Her Heart (and Hair) in St. Barth’s; Blake Lively Befriends People With Pixie Cuts; And More-------

In other Instagram news, hairstylist Jimmy Paul (a.k.a. @jimmypaulhair) recently joined the legions of beauty pros who share their snaps from on set and backstage.
Things we learned about Blake Lively from a recent interview with The Cut: 1. Her signature scent is a blend of “cookies” and Gucci Premiere. 2. She gets “geeked out” by people with pixie cuts. “You see someone do that and you think, ‘I want to be friends with them,’” she said. (If 2013 was any indication, Lively was geeking out a lot and has seriously expanded her social circle.) 3. And if you’re wondering where to take the blond bombshell to dinner, look no further than New Jersey and The Cheesecake Factory. This food aficionado believes the chain should have “Michelin stars.” Ryan Reynolds snagged himself a deal come date night.
