Watch Video: See How We Gave These Street Cast Models Short Hair Dos

Short cuts -- in all its permutations -- is big news this season. To celebrate the comeback of this low-maintenance style, we cast three models off the streets and gave each of them a daring new look.

For the month of June, Female celebrates the spirit of independence in the world of fashion, photography and pop culture. When it comes to beauty, there is nothing more liberating than a short hair do. For one, it’s a low-maintenance look which was last big in the ’90s thanks to women like Winona Ryder and making a comeback whether it’s a pixie, a bob or a blunt chop. Another reason why the look is hot now: It’s the edgy hairstyles of top models like EZ, Nina Milner, Birgit Kos, and Chu Wong. With the aid of hairstylist Ark Lin of Air Salon, we plucked three girls off the streets and have them go through a makeover. For more of the looks, grab a copy of the June issue of Female. In the meantime, here is a behind-the-scenes look at the photo shoot with the three women.
