Nicole Richie’s little sis (and braid aficionado) Sofia has been in all kinds of headlines lately after she found herself smack dab in the middle of an epic social media war between Justin Bieber and his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez.

Following a series of photos that Justin Bieber posted with Sofia, who also happens to be his rumored new girlfriend, people went into a tizzy, prompting some scathing words from Selena (and consequently fans) that ended with Justin deactivating his account.

Though reports have since surfaced that Justin may have already moved on, all eyes are still on Sofia, who thinks it’s time for a change.

Taking the scissors to her famously flowing flaxen locks, she posted the following shot to Instagram.

Yup we chopped it @andylecompte

“Yep, we chopped it,” she writes, tagging stylist @andylecompte.

Taking her hair from well past her chest to just above her shoulders, the cut is a big one for the teen. Adding what also appear to be several choppy layers, it’s a far cry from the long mermaid tresses she was previously sporting, but we think it does wonders to accentuate her features — in fact, we think it’s kind of perfect!

Justin or no Justin, girl clearly isn’t letting haters get her down — she looks something fierce, and we love it.

Keep doing you, Sofia!
