In THR's Beauty Issue, the 'Fargo' actress discusses the moment that made her hairstylist exclaim, "Let's cut this shit off!" — which comes in at No. 15 on our list of Hollywood's Top Beauty Moments of 2015.

Kirsten Dunst's "It" haircut is No. 15 on THR's list of Hollywood's Top Beauty Moments of 2015.

When: Her summer cut has been making waves ever since she got it on Aug. 12.

Why It Matters: Last year's pixies and long bobs morphed into wobs (wavy bobs) with Dunst's being the gold standard: natural, sexy, modern.

Must-Have Product: Oribe Curl by Definition Creme

After months of contemplating a cut, the Fargo actress lopped off 10 inches of long blond hair, resulting in a chin-grazing bob that flaunts her natural wavy texture while showcasing the year's "It" style: "I had bleached my hair the year before, and Cervando was like, 'Let's cut this shit off!' " Dunst tells THR. The 33-year-old's longtime hair stylist, Cervando Maldonado, who did the chop, says actresses are craving "a short cut that's still casual, sexy and loose," especially when it comes to wearing elaborate red-carpet gowns. Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway (both have grown-out pixies) as well as hairstylist Mark Townsend's clients Rachel McAdams, Dakota Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen also are sporting the style. "Kirsten's so beautiful and can wear any style, but I like her with a bob — it suits her face very well," says Maldonado. His key for "defining waves and getting pieciness" is Oribe Curl by Definition Creme: "It's about a bob with Brigitte Bardot texture."
