Julia Roberts Just Got on the Lob Train & You Have to See Her New ’Do

Julia Roberts is stepping into spring with a fresh new look.

Yep, like Kristen Bell and Mandy Moore before her, the 51-year-old Oscar winner just traded in her signature wavy longish locks for a stylish new lob. All we can say is welcome to the lob club, Jules.

The Homecoming star’s new haircut made a splash on her celebrity hairstylist Serge Norant’s Instagram page, with everyone from Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker and model Heidi Klum saying they loved (lobbed?) it. In the photo, Roberts shows off her stunning profile and new sun-kissed waves.

Norant succinctly captioned the snap of Roberts, “@juliaroberts new [cut] #sergenormant,” because who has time for words when there’s a new Hollywood ’do to admire?

Roberts’s new Malibu-ready locks are a fresh follow-up to the rose quartz hair she rocked for a hot minute late last year. And if the rose quartz hue was the little oomph she needed to finish out 2018 strong, then her new high-contrast chunky honey highlights are the optimal transition accessory required for spring. They’re bright as Roberts’s rainbow outfits and they’re super low-key looking…like when Roberts rock climbed in couture (remember that?).

Bless you, Julia Roberts, for temporarily distracting us from our recent preoccupation with bangs.

We’re totally in it for the long haul bob.
