Forget pin-straight strands or long, wavy locks. The hottest haircut in Hollywood these days, thanks to stars including Miley Cyrus and Anne Hathaway, is short and sweet — and the latest celeb to rock the style is Maggie Gyllenhaal.

And thanks to Gyllenhaal’s new do, we hardly recognized her. Dressed in a sheer tee and printed pants, she looked like any other low-key Brooklyn mom walking around her N.Y.C. neighborhood with her kids — though those giant movie-star shades might have tipped us off.

We’re split on what we think of the new crop, so we’ll put it to a vote. Tell us: What do you think of Gyllenhaal’s pixie cut?
