Pixie cuts and lobs might be the hair trends of the moment, but not everyone is under the spell of short hair.

In fact, while stars like Cara Delevingne and Zoe Kravitz have embraced the chop of late, other celebrities have managed to avoid cutting their hair short throughout their entire career.

Whether it's because of a desire to maintain a signature look, or because of a teeny-tiny haircut phobia (we've all been burned before), these female celebrities stay loyal to their long locks, year-round.

And though they may yet fall victim to the tide of choppy crops and blunt bobs, here are eight stars who are steadfastly sticking to their mermaid hair. For now.

Amber Heard

While Heard has trialled mid-length layered cuts in the past, she's never opted for a bob or anything shorter (even though we're certain she'd be able to pull off a pixie cut with aplomb).

Sofia Vergara

Vergara has experimented with hair colours and even a fleeting fringe, but by her own admission she's never dabbled in "super short hair". "I don't think I could pull it off but it may be fun to try," she told Fashion Magazine.

Lily Aldridge

Although she briefly donned a short, platinum-blonde wig in July 2019 (and looked amazing while doing it), Aldridge has never officially strayed from her long, balayage-brunette waves. "Never, ever!" Aldridge told ELLE Canada when asked if she'd try short hair. "It happened to me once three years ago and I promise you I'll never attempt it again. I don't look good with short hair; my best look is when I wear it long. I've learned my lesson."

Blake Lively

Lively's long, blonde hair is her signature, but it's also a big part of her confidence. "Honestly I am a shy person," the actress told Hello! magazine. "My hair is a safety net for me, so I love to have it down and full and relaxed. Often you see people on the red carpet with tight up-dos, but that makes me feel stiff."

Gisele Bündchen

We didn't realise how intrinsically linked Bündchen was to her golden locks until she posed with a bob haircut in a campaign for Brazilian jeweller Vivara. While the supermodel briefly had shoulder-length hair in the early 2000s, she's far more committed to her waist-length waves.

Gigi Hadid

She's tried fooling us several times with wigs and faux-bobs, but Hadid is pretty hesitant to part with her long hair.

Emily Ratajkowski

Much like Hadid, Ratajkowski isn't shy about embracing wigs and hair wizardry to fake bobs, bangs and everything in between. However, she's mostly stuck with the same long, brunette, layered haircut since day one of her modelling career. "I consider my hair as the reflection of my inner strength. It's not an ornament but a way to express myself," Ratajkowski has said. "I think that's true for all women. There's such an empowering femininity to hair. It allows women to define who they want to be."

Sara Sampaio

While she'll happily trial a pixie cut on the runway, Portugese-born Sampaio prefers to keep her hair long and lush. And looking at those glossy waves, we don't blame her.
