She debuted her new look at the CFDA Awards (pictured above). Celebrity hair stylist Chris McMillan is responsible for the drastic short cut, taking to Instagram to show it from all angles (see for yourself here and here). 

Before: Jennifer Lawrence

J-Law has been rocking masses of curls at all her red carpet events this year (case in point: the Oscars, pictured above), prompting many to speculate that she’d gone and had a perm. But now, she’s chopped off her long locks…

… in favour of a textured, shaggy bob. It’s not the first time Lawrence has strayed into bob/lob territory – as her hairdresser, Riawna Capri notes in this Instagram, “The babe is back to short.” She debuted her fresh cut at the BAM Gala overnight (pictured above).

Before: Jenna Dewan

Jenna Dewan (previously Tatum) has always experimented with shorter hairstyles, from the above textured lob to razor-sharp shoulder-grazing styles.

But the star stepped out at this week’s Billboard Music Awards with her boldest cut yet: a blunt-cut, chin-grazing bob. The super-short post-breakup haircut proves bobs and lobs are going nowhere.

Before: Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez has often mixed up her hairstyles, going from brunette to platinum blonde and long and wavy to short and chic. But her newest look is so subtle you might miss, but is a serious nod to the 90s…

After: Selena Gomez

At first glance it just looks like Selena is rocking a high pony, but on closer inspection, the 25-year-old actress has actually shaved off part of her hair, into a 90s undercut. “Always need a subtle change. @puma Germany family time 😊 grateful for the welcome,” she captioned the pic on Instagram.

Before: Lara Worthington

Lara Worthington has always been the ultimate blonde bombshell, playing with styles over the years she’s always been our ultimate beachy-blonde inspiration… until now!

Lara showed off the new look on Instagram, the same chic Bingle Bob we know and love but now in a slightly darker hue.

Before: Leighton Meester

Pretty much the whole time we’ve known Leighton, she’s had dark hair. But the Gossip Girl star debuted a totally different look on Instagram overnight…

After: Leighton Meester

Spotted: Queen B with platinum blonde hair. Leighton has also chopped off some of her length into a trendy lob.

Before: Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore has been our balayage inspo for years now, with her brunette-to-buttery-blonde colour.

Now, she’s traded in her dip-dyed ends for all-over platinum blonde. 

Before: Kate Bosworth

Kate Bosworth has been platinum blonde ever since Blue Crush secured her star status. Her signature look sees her pair an eye-popping bright lip with her icy locks, but now she’s switching things up.

After: Kate Bosworth

The actress posted the above photo to her Instagram account today, revealing new coppery-auburn locks. Her followers are loving the new hue, a dark take on strawberry blonde.

After: Mandy Moore

But today, the 33-year-old actress unveiled her fresh blonde look, the work of celebrity hair stylists Ashley Streicher and Tracey Cunningham, who posted this pic on Instagram. With rich caramel roots fading to warm flaxen ends, the colour is creamy, natural-looking and user-friendly for brunettes ready to give blonde a try. 

Before: Rosie Huntington Whiteley

The new mum is known for her signature long, blonde locks…
