Reese Witherspoon just joined the league of celebrities (Brie Larsen, Mandy Moore, the list goes on) who have traded in their long locks for this summer’s “it” haircut: the bob. The Big Little Lies actress clearly thought the season two wrap-up was the right moment to try something new (and we totally agree).
She shared the new ’do on Instagram with a boomerang of the swishy style, captioning the post “Thanks for my new summer cut @lonavigi!” and tagging her hairstylist, Lona Vigi. The 43-year-old actress has long been known for her lengthy blonde locks (um, Legally Blonde, anyone?) but the trendy, shorter chop seems like a genius way to kick off the warmer months. We’re all for a haircut that doesn’t turn into a sweaty mess on the back of our necks come July. Witherspoon kept her version of the bob a little longer, with face-framing layers to keep it from looking too “soccer mom heading to the country club.”
Witherspoon, who just celebrated the return of Big Little Lies at its season two premiere, went on the record about how excited she was for another season: “It all began with one phone call between two friends,” she said. “The show is really a testament to the power of female friendship, so I’m enormously proud.” We, on the other hand, are enormously excited to queue up those new episodes on HBO.
Congrats on the haircut, Reese. We’ll see you on Sunday at 9 pm.
