When the time comes to head to the hair salon, you usually have two options. You can a) go for a tame trim or b) opt for a totally new look. But what about when you’re looking for something in between? If you’re itching for a change but you don’t necessarily want a whole new head of hair we suggest you look to Naomi Watts’ new chop for inspiration.

While attending the premiere for the new film Spotlight, Noami showed off a blunt new look that was noticeably different from her previous cut. Ladies currently rocking a medium cut or a lob, take note: If you’re wanting a slight shift in style but you’re not exactly ready to commit to something like bangs or a whole bunch of layers, adding an a-line angle can make a big impact. It can quickly add an element of drama to a shoulder-length cut and the best part is, it’s an easy fix if you later decide you’re not actually that into it.

A quick hair update that doesn’t run the risk of turning into a major 6-month mistake? We’re in.
