Kate Beckinsale Debuts New Blonde Bob

First it was Reese Witherspoon. Then it was Ciara. And now, Kate Beckinsale is the latest celebrity to commit to the hair trend of the summer: the bob.

One day before her 46th birthday, the actress ditched her famous long brown hair for a much shorter—and lighter—’do. Beckinsale posted a photo of herself rocking a blunt blonde bob that falls just above her shoulders.

She wrote a caption that has nothing to do with her new hairdo, saying, “Any Americans in London wondering where the AC is, I’ve found it and I’ll be squatting over it for a couple of weeks, so you’ll just have to manage.”

The edgy, tousled style is a far stretch from her usual look, but she appears to be enjoying her new weather-appropriate hairdo.

Although we don’t know if the cut is for a movie or for pleasure, many believe it’s for Beckinsale’s upcoming film Jolt, starring Jai Courtney, Laverne Cox, Bobby Cannavale and Stanley Tucci.

Still, one question remains: Do blondes really have more fun?
