Kate Hudson has long been instantly recognizable for her long blonde locks, so it was a surprise for everyone when she chopped them off and shaved her head for a movie. And while her new ‘do definitely has some benefits (hello, less maintenance), her son Ryder wasn’t on board — at first.

“Ryder’s like, ‘Mom, you’re cramping my style,'” she told Entertainment Tonight of her 13-year-old-son’s (dad is ex Chris Robinson) reaction. He didn’t stay salty for long, though. “But when I did it, he was like, ‘Oh my God, we actually …’ It was the first time he even could see that we looked, you know, that he looked like his mommy.”

The two definitely bear a striking resemblance to one another now that her hair isn’t the mane event. It sounds like they’re going to keep twinning too; Hudson said that she’s growing her hair out now and Ryder is growing his own out as well. Talk about an effortless Mommy-and-me style!
