Nicole Kidman has officially ditched her signature long locks, unveiling a stunning new haircut in a recent photo.
The Australian actress debuted the dramatic transformation on her Instagram today, much to the shock of her 7.6m followers. Wearing a navy knitted jumper over a white t-shirt, Nicole looks stunning with her freshly chopped 'do—proving you're never too old to experiment with pixie haircuts.
The makeover is a major change for the Nine Perfect Strangers star, who is known for her chest-length blonde tresses and perfectly even center part. She captioned the glowing photo 'On set 🌈 #Roar #FemaleFilmmakers,' in reference to her upcoming Apple TV+ series.

The new haircut was met with gushing praise from fans, many of whom were notably excited to see the film star mix up her go-to long hairstyles.
"This is so majestic and just fabulous!!! Go off my Queen 👑 💖🌈," one person posted.
"Simply stunning 🌈🌈🌈🌈," another approving follower commented.
Not everybody was thrilled with the cropped look though. Some fans were quick to mourn Nicole's previous image, even expressing their hopes that the short hairdo is only temporary.
"You let them cut your fabulous hair??? 😢😢I hope that’s a wig😣 But you’re still beautiful❤️❤️," one worried person wrote. Their concerns were echoed by an equally anxious fan, who posted, "What's going on with the hair I’m scared."
Nicole has never worn a real-life pixie cut in the past, preferring to stick to wigs if she needs to hide her long mane. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic influencing a lot of folks to be more playful with their style, it's definitely possible the Oscar-winner has embraced a whole new look.
Just last week, Jada Pinkett Smith debuted a shaved head after decades of changing hairdos—and looked absolutely breathtaking as a result.
