Being a mom of three looks good on Jessica Alba! The Honest Beauty founder welcomed her first son, Hayes Alba, on New Year’s Eve, and now, she’s updating her style as she joins the likes of Beyoncé, Lauren Conrad, and Whitney Port for a post-birth chop to shed that “pregnancy hair.”

The Bad Boys spinoff actress paid a visit to celebrity hairstylist Chad Wood, posting side-by-side before and after shots from their session.

The cut took her super-long strands, which reached well beyond her décolletage, up just past her shoulders, with angled layers to give her some added lift. While it wasn’t quite as short as her chin-length 2015 cut, it was noticeable enough to rid the star of unwanted hair weight. “This happened 💇🏽‍♀️,” she wrote, adding, “[Thanks] @chadwoodhair for the awesome #haircut — it feels sooo good to shed the pregnancy hair.”

Wood, who also works with Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Walsh, and Ashley Benson, also gave us a look at her transformation in action with a time-lapse video that had us mesmerized. “Wait! I liked that piece!” he joked.

He even snapped the finished product, saying, a “fresh new look for Mama.”
