Michelle Williams: 'I'm Really Working on Growing My Hair Out!'

Michelle Williams Longer Hair

Anne Hathaway and Miley Cyrus may be totally committed to their short haircuts, but one famously gamine star is ready to ditch her pixie: Michelle Williams.

“I think I’m ready,” Williams, 32, told E! News at a press junket for her film Oz: The Great and Powerful. “It’s on its way, slowly but surely.”

Don’t expect rapid change from the star, who’s had her signature platinum short cut since debuting the look at Cannes in 2010: “I might want it now, but I’ll have it in three years,” she joked of the slow growing-out time.

In fact, that in-between stage is why she’s waited so long to start the transition. “The mid-stage is insufferable,” she said. “It’s really hard on your self-esteem.”

We have to say, she’s managing it quite nicely, showing off a punky asymmetrical look Wednesday outside Late Night With David Letterman. And since her moviemaking schedule is clear for a bit, she joked that she’s ready to devote herself to the new length. “I’m really happy to not have anything looming — except my hair,” she told E! “I’m really working on growing my hair out!”

Tell us: Are you looking forward to seeing Williams with longer hair (here’s a refresher pic) or do you prefer her pixie?

I like her with short hair, her face is perfect for it.

She looks so cute either way.

I really like it longer. But whatever makes her happy!

I love her short hair, but she’s so darn gorgeous she could do anything to her hair.

Finally…..she looks so pretty without that pixie cut. Time to move on. Her face looks softer and prettier with a little longer hair. The other way was too stark.

She’s attractive regardless but she looks incredible with a pixie cut. It is a hard style to pull off and she does so beautifully! Wish I could got pixie!!

Kat on

Hate the pixie cut on her!! Look forward to something longer.

I feel her! After losing all my hair to chemotherapy, I’ve kept it in a pixie cut–cute and easy! Now, though, I’m over it and trying to grow my hair. It’s like having a new hairstyle everyday….and I have to learn how to work with it each day. Can’t wait for it to get where I want it.

Debs on

She is beautiful with short or longer hair.
I personally like the short hair on her, she pulls it off beautifully!

She said she kept it short in honor of Heath Ledger who liked short hair…guess 5 years of honoring him was enough?
