Mandy Moore Ditches Her Long Hair for a Chin-Grazing Bob
If there’s one thing that’s a true staple to Mandy Moore‘s sweetheart aesthetic, it’s her chocolate brown hair. While we all dig a signature style, sometimes it’s fun to shake things up. And that’s exactly what the This Is Us actress did with the help of celebrity hairstylist Ashley Streicher. (Photo via Steve Granitz/ Getty)
On Tuesday, March 5, Streicher shared a teaser of Moore’s new cut and color on Instagram, captioning the post, “Over the shoulder sneak peek @mandymooremm ✂️ #STRIIIKEhair 📷: @photobyjennajones.”
It wasn’t until Wednesday, March 6, however, that Moore took to her own Instagram Story to debut the makeover. While the video didn’t focus on her hair transformation (she shared a heartwarming shoutout to her younger co-stars on the latest episode of This Is Us), it was hard not to notice the trendy new ‘do. A few inches shorter than what’s she’s been rocking in the past year, the chin-grazing length fits perfectly with the bob trend that’s been going strong since 2018.
Streicher gave us our best look yet on Thursday, March 7, via Instagram. She revealed she not only shortened Moore’s locks but celebrity colorist Nancy Braun gave her a color change too with the caption, “MANDY 🖤 #STRIIIKEhair#newhair#mandymoore@mandymooremm#GarnierGirl@garnierusa.” Moore, a brand ambassador for Garnier, used the Garnier Shade Selector Tool to find the just-right hue. Then Braun, a consulting colorist for the brand, dyed her hair accordingly with Garnier Nutrisse Shade 53.
Moore isn’t the only one opting for a shorter hairstyle: Anne Hathaway also shared her lob in a rare selfie via Instagram on Wednesday, March 6. In the caption, she writes, “#TFW you’re at the photo shoot and @hairbyadir freshed up your ends and @beau_nelson made your brows do something cool and Malibu is just being Malibu so you take selfie and what was I talking about doesn’t matter byeeeeeee.” While her ends aren’t much shorter than the original length, this time they’ve been paired with a slightly razored look.
