A question for beauty fans: Is there anything more universal than the post-salon selfie? The after-haircut ritual unites haircare enthusiasts everywhere, whether you've stopped by your colorist for subtle, less-is-more highlights or you've made a major chop, à la Zoë Kravitz's new pixie cut. And yes, in case you're wondering, the Big Little Lies actor did celebrate her new 'do with a celebratory selfie.
Of course, the timing of Kravitz's fresh look couldn't be more perfect. The star debuted her pixie cut on her Instagram account Nov. 26, tagging stylist Nikki Nelms in the photo — just days before her Dec. 1 birthday. The cut also arrived a month after Kravitz's upcoming role as Catwoman was announced, leading fans to speculate via Instagram comments if the sleek look could be inspired by the antihero.
One thing is for sure, though: It's definitely approved by both friends and fans. With the post fetching more than 560,000 likes on IG, it's since won glowing accolades online from Emily Ratajkowski, Charlize Theron, and Naomi Campbell (who commented not once, but twice). "Yes," Ratajkowski wrote, adding a heart-eyes emoji, while Theron commented, "So, so pretty." However, Campbell may have put it best, simply commenting three hearts and three fire emojis (summarizing what we're all thinking).
Experiencing a sneaking sense of déjà vu? This isn't the first time Kravitz has sported the dramatically short style. The star has rocked a face-framing pixie over the past few years, appearing with the look on the cover of InStyle magazine and as the face of an edgy Saint Laurent campaign. And while your own Kravitz-inspired pixie cut may be slightly less photographed, it'll still be just as worthy of a post-snip selfie.
