The drastic celebrity hair changes keep rolling in, offering up some great inspiration ahead of spring's official arrival. Last week, Lucy Hale showed off a fresh shade of brown that made quite a convincing case for going darker. Now, it's Julia Roberts' lob haircut that might just inspire you to chop it all off this season. Not only is the actor's new cut incredibly stunning, but it also proves to be one of the most low-maintenance styles around (though it looks anything but.)
There are certain celebrities who are known to switch up their cut or color regularly — Lucy Hale and Emma Roberts seem to constantly book appointments with their stylists. But there are also a handful of big names who have sported the same style for years, rarely straying away from their signature look. Case in point: Julia Roberts. Though she's certainly changed up her color a handful of times, her length has stayed fairly consistent over the years — that is, until Thurs.
On March 14, Roberts' longtime hairstylist, Serge Normant, broke the news of the actor's fresh springtime cut via Instagram, sharing a side view with the caption, "@juliaroberts ❤️ new ✂️." Her wavy lob is slightly shorter in the back and lands just below her shoulders in the front — and although there hasn't been a front-view reveal yet, it's safe to assume she hasn't parted ways with her signature side part just yet.
Roberts' wavy lob is quite a big deal in the beauty world, considering she hasn't worn her hair this short in years. And though it's unclear what inspired her to finally take the chop, it's possible the warmer season had a hand in prompting the change — and she's certainly going to inspire you to switch it up, too.
The actor's new chop is the perfect no-fuss haircut for spring — it's so easy to style and can be worn in countless ways. It's long enough to pull back into a ponytail (or any other updo, for that matter) when the temperatures skyrocket. Or, you can simply use a small dollop of texturizing cream when you want effortless, beachy waves like Roberts. Shorter hair means less time (and product) is needed, deeming the actor's lob the ultimate low-maintenance style for spring.
