Has Jameela Jamil chopped all her hair off? It certainly looks like it, as the star has just shared an Instagram picture sporting a new, blunt bob with bangs.

With bob hairstyles (opens in new tab) tipped as the most popular cut of the last 12 months, it's no surprise. Experts have also dubbed it the most hygienic haircut (opens in new tab) to have during the ongoing pandemic – so it's really no surprise that The Good Place star has jumped on the bandwagon too.

While some followers suspect the new 'do might be a wig, the verdict is that Jameela looks great with the shorter style. We couldn't agree more!

"Ok, I will start a petition to have Jameela as the new Doctor in Doctor Who. With this same look," wrote one approving follower, while another added, "This look & your attitude is EVERYTHING, you look fabulous."

In a 2019 interview with The New York Times, the actress shared some of her go-to haircare products. "I use Head & Shoulders because I’ve had bad dandruff for years. Since I started the show, I’ve been using it with Olaplex conditioner. Normally I never touch my hair – I don’t curl or dry it. But on the show, it’s an assault because they’re drying it every day.

"I also cut my own hair – since I was 16 – and I never dye it," she continued. "I had so many screw-ups. You live and learn, and learn off the internet, and watch other people. I’m a super-self-sufficient person, and I like to be in control of myself."
