Hailee's New Hair Rocks

And the scissor-shearing continues. Hailee Steinfeld chopped off her long locks, but no, she hasn't gotten a Lob. She's taken a slightly different approach to fall's biggest hair trend, and all I can say is — thank you!

The 17-year-old actress stepped out for Tuesday's premiere of her new movie The Homesman during the AFI Film Festival in Hollywood, but there was something different about her. Steinfeld chopped off 10 inches of her hair, so, yeah, I guess you could say that's mighty different. Though 10 inches sounds like a fair amount, her hair was so long to begin with that it actually isn't that short. It's not a "lob" or a "ob" or any other variation on "ob." It still hangs well below her shoulders, and she styled it in loose waves with some new side bangs to frame her face.

The Oscar-nominee's new look is not only gorgeous, but she looks far more mature, and went shorter without giving up her signature long hair. For everyone who's fearful of parting with their lengthy locks, Steinfeld's take on the short hair trend is a great way to keep some length in your hair without it overpowering you. It's fun and modern, but still has just a hint of that princess hair we've all known and loved from her. A+ for switching the hair game up, Hailee!
