Karlie Kross says short hair can be sexy.

The Victoria's Secret model is the first of a long history of angels to have short hair. The brunette is not just experimenting with a different hairstyle but insists the bob is here to stay.

Karlie got the chop a day before walking in the Victoria's Secret fashion show last autumn. At first she was ''in the dog house'' for her decision but Karlie convinced everyone it was the right choice to make.

She stated: ''There are girls out there with every body type and there are girls out there with every hair type. You can be sexy with short hair!''

A new look is not the only thing to make the model feel sexy as love interest Josh Kushner gives Karlie the escape she needs from a life as a catwalk model. Although Karlie loves being part of something where she feels ''beautiful, confident and sexy'' she appreciates Josh for being different.

She stated: ''He's so not in fashion. It's really refreshing to leave all the fashion shows and shoots and chaos totally behind.''

The supermodel tries to lead a healthy lifestyle and favors water over champagne to maintain her look on the runway.

She told PEOPLE magazine: ''I am definitely a sleep over champagne kind of girl. I'm a hardworking girl, so I have to take care of myself. You have to rest while you can, drink water and power through.''
