Angelina Jolie’s Subtle Haircut Is Perfect For Hesitant Girls Everywhere

It's been a quite the year of new beginnings for Angelina Jolie. The actress and filmmaker survived a very public split from longtime love Brad Pitt, went on to create her most personal film yet with the heart-wrenching adaptation of First They Killed My Father and fronted Harper's Bazaar's milestone 150th anniversary issue. As tangible proof that changes are yet to come, Angie was spotted at a film premiere in West Hollywood with the subtlest of hair makeovers: A shorter trim that hinted at her newfound #GirlPower.

The iconic beauty's inches-shorter look was not only perfect for the fall transition, but also ideal for those of us who are understandably hesitant to opt for a major seasonal chop. Here, Angie proves that a fresh blowout—and a few snips, perhaps—are all you need for a fresh start.
