Its a common lament among women pondering a dramatically short cut: if I chop it all off, I will have exactly one option for how to style my hair. Enter Carey Mulligan with some handy hairstyle tips.

In the span of a few days at Cannes she is there promoting the forthcoming, hotly anticipated, Wall Street 2 alongside her co-star and boyfriend Shia LaBeouf she wore her close crop three very different ways. First, Mulligan kept her slightly overgrown pixie au naturel for a photo call (above left); she fashioned it into a playful Betty Boop-esque finger wave for the Wall Street 2 premiere (center); and finally she channeled a Basic Instinct-era Sharon Stone with a sleek, slicked-back do at a screening (above right). Haircut versatility: achieved.
