When the time comes for a new hairstyle, careful consideration is required. Let’s be honest, we probably give more thought to whether or not we should get bangs than we do to our taxes. And while sometimes we tend to say on the safe side (because terrible haircuts are something we’d only wish on our worst enemies), there is something to be said about going for a totally unexpected look. Case in point: Jennifer Hudson’s flawless new shaved style.

We already knew that Jennifer Hudson was a total beauty bad ass, but she reaffirmed her fearless style yesterday when she showed off her dramatically different new ‘do. The musician and actress ditched the chic, long pixie she was previously rocking for a totally shaved head. In an Instagram showing off the new look, Hudson writes, “All black every thang! Who needs hair, when u serving face!”

And you know what, she’s totally right. Paired with those full, berry colored lips, endless eyelashes and face for days, Jennifer is making this style look totally flawless. Watch your back, Ruby Rose, this might just be the new covetable Hollywood haircut.
