Elisha Cuthbert: Short & Sassy Hair Style

Canadian born Elisha Cuthbert gives new meaning to short and sassy style.

As Kim Bauer, the strong minded, saucy blonde beauty on Fox TV's 24 series, Elisha has proven she loves to experiment with her hair styles and dos.

During the past three years on the 24 series, not only has Elisha's hair morphed up and down from a short flipped up bob to a longer shaggy look, her hair color has evolved from a darker butterscotch to her current white chocolate and French Vanilla look (shown to the side).

For the 2003-2004 season, Elisha wore a shaggy choppy bob that included a soft sultry shaggy veil of bangs sweeping below her eyebrows.

Elisha is the poster girl for bangs and seems to prefer layered bangs or bangs that are below-the-eyebrow. The later bangs (below-the-eyebrow) are probably the result of various bang grow-out stages which changes her fringe MO on an ongoing basis.

Sometimes Elisha wears her bangs slightly parted and at other times she pulls her hair completely off her face instantly creating a different look.

Of course Elisha has access to the Fox 24 set hairdresser who must create hairstyles in keeping with Elisha's character development and helps Elisha create all these sassy hair looks.

The beauty of Elisha's current shaggy bob on 24 is that it follows the current hair trends for that soft, sultry Bardot blonde bombshell. IT also fits her character's personality on 24 perfectly.

Steal Elisha's Short Sassy Hairstyle:

If you have hair envy and wish to stead Elisha's sassy short hairstyle follow the steps below:

Start with a chin length bob that has long angled bangs. Work with your hairstylist to select a bob length and shape that works with your face shape, hair texture and type. If your hair is naturally curly you may wish to go with a slightly longer length.

Shampoo with a shampoo program for color treated locks or a color enhancing product.

Towel blot and then gently squeeze excess moisture from your locks.

Apply a product like Phyto defrisant or smoothing cream into the balms of your hands and then lightly glide your product coated palms and fingers from the roots to the ends. This will help to eliminate frizzy kinks or angel hair flyaways.

Use a large round brush and blow dry with the air flow directly up the hair shaft for extra fullness and movement.

When hair is 100% dry, use a large barrelled curling iron that is between 1 and 1 1/2" wide to slightly flip up the very ends of the style.

Use a tiny drop of shine serum in the palms of your hands and then glide carefully over the top of the finished style for high glisten shimmer.

Finish with a light hold hairspray.

Instantly Change Elisha's Hairstyle

Elisha's hair style can be instantly finished in a more glamorous style. Instead of creating slight flips, set the entire bob style in large diameter hot rollers. Let the rollers completely cool and then transfer the new curls to Velcro rollers to set for at least one hour.

Spray the hair while still in rollers. Carefully remove each roller and arrange the curls carefully with lightly coated gelled fingers. This will give the curls a lot of sensual bounce and movement.


If you love Elisha on the the Fox 24 series, be sure and watch for her in her upcoming film and TV roles.

Cuthbert will star in the romantic-comedy "The Girl Next Door" opposite Emile Hirsch. She will also appear in "Love Actually" with Hugh Grant and Colin Firth.

Hair at the nape of the neck often misbehaves because it is where finer baby hair grows. Harness baby locks w/ faux-jeweled claw clips or smooth on your favorite hair paste or wax to hold fragile strands in place.
