For as long as we can remember, Whitney Port has been sporting long blonde tresses that reach past her shoulders. As of today, that’s no more: Gone is the 32-year-old’s far-reaching mane, with the fashion designer following the lead of her former co-worker, Lauren Conrad, by heading under the scissors for a rather drastic cut.

She gave us a look at the aftermath via social media, debuting a much shorter — and very chic! — sleek, blunt bob.

“It had to go,” the mommy of one wrote by way of explanation. The last time we saw the former reality star make such a huge hair change was back in 2014, when she traded in her uber-long tresses for another blunt bob. This time, she’s gone even shorter, with her longest pieces hitting just below her chin.

Stylist Jake B. Martin gave us a perfect glimpse of her before and after looks, saying, “Sooo…. @whitneyeveport was like, ‘I’m ready to chop it!!! So here’s to a new look for 2018! Classic modern BOB.” Honestly, we think the look looks lovely on the one-time The City star, brightening up her face like only a new chop can. Welcome to the (almost!) new year, AND the new Whitney!
