Is this the latest hair trend to watch out for? No we're not talking about the bob, but instead Taylor Swift's decision to have her hair lopped off in front of a room full of friends after the London leg of her Red tour. Perhaps she was so nervous about doing away with her princess tresses that she needed the moral support of her besties - and bouncers - or could it be that snipping soirees are the new Tupperware parties?

Either way we think Swifty's new do is fab. Not only is it super cute in an Alexa Chung / twee kinda way, but it also serves accentuate the singer's enviably defined cheekbones. And it seems Ellie Goulding, who was there to witness the makeover approves too. She shared a photo of herself with Taylor and Cara Delevingne (another bystander) with the caption, "Just some dorks. And a stellar haircut". Cara posted an image of the haircut in process with the description, "@taylorswift chopping off her locks". Taylor herself uploaded an Instagram video as she spun around to reveal the crowd gathering to witness her transformation:
24-year-old Taylor revealed her new look, as she completed her final London show and the European chapter of her Red tour. She tweeted, "London, I could never thank you enough. See you next time! PS: short hair, don't care. (!!!)" The star is known for her long locks, and particularly for her fringe, which remain pretty much a constant whether she wear her hair straight, wavy or curled.
