Yes, it could confuse your friends and family, but with a few pins, you can turn long hair into a short crop and then go back to long the next day. "It's an easy way to get a dramatically different style without committing to a chop," says Marcus Francis, who did Kerry Washington's look. Here's how to test-drive the trend in three easy steps.

Create a deep side part, then divide hair into three sections.

Bend each piece of hair under, securing the ends against your head by crisscrossing two Goody Colour Collection bobby pins ($4/50 at (Thick hair may require more.)

Finish off the flattering style with a layer of hairspray.
