LeAnn Rimes debuts super short locks -- see the pics!


Summer hair, don't care!

LeAnn Rimes took to Instagram on Friday to debut a brand new shorter, lighter 'do that is giving us major hair envy.

"A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life - Coco Chanel," the 34-year-old wrote. "Right on Coco! Loving the newness ❤️ @mateo_sifuentes thank you! It was time to feel a bit lighter on the outside to match what I feel on the inside."

15 long bobs we love

We never thought T. Swift would part with her signature mermaid waves, but after several years in the spotlight, she finally went for the chop in a big way. Taylor's versatile cut is sophisticated and versatile, and it lends itself particularly well to this type of classic styling.

We have serious bob envy in the case of Emma's sleek, shiny cut. Long layers and face-framing curls are flattering and unexpected on this abbreviated length.

Emma has succeeded in growing out her gamine post-"Potter" pixie in style. A smooth center part, large barrel waves, and a touch of height at the crown alludes to slightly retro glamour that still seems contemporary.

Katy's blunt bob, complete with eyebrow-grazing bangs, is as classic as they come.

Kristen shocked fans when she lopped off her long locks in favor of a sleek to-the-chin bob earlier this year.

Alexa Chung has truly perfected the long bob. With ombre highlights and a length that goes just beyond her shoulders, this style will look good on anyone—even as it grows out.

The Mad Men actress never wears her long bob the same way twice. To get these waves, use a curling iron to curl hair away from the face.

Kate's long bob looks great pin-straight because it's all one length. 

Dress up your lob like Katharine's with thick, loose waves and a deep side part. 

Kerry wears her lob straight and curly, but we especially love the messy texture on this shoulder-skimming look. To replicate the style, curl pieces of hair at random with a curling iron, and then use a flat iron to go over the ends.

Lily has similar texture to Kerry's style, but without the bangs. For a boost in volume, copy her deep side part.

Marion Cotillard wore a more angular lob to the Golden Globes awards earlier this year, pairing the look with side-swept bangs. To keep hair smooth all night, try rubbing a dime-size amount of John Frieda Frizz-Ease Sheer Solution ($9.99, drugstore.com) into hands and then distributing through hair, starting at the ends.

Nicole Kidman looks seriously elegant in this classic haircut, that extends just past her shoulders. We hope this means she's said goodbye to long extensions for good!

Nicole recently went back to a lob and blunt bangs, which accentuate her eyes. We love this length, which hovers just above her shoulders.

Rose caught a lot of attention after cutting a short bob and blunt bangs, and her hair keeps getting better as she grows it out.
