Taylor Swift’s Rapunzel-like locks are gone! The country darling has chopped off her hair, introducing a chic bob in lieu of her signature long blond look.

The shearing, which was successively chronicled on social media, comes just after the seven-time Grammy winner completed the European leg of her blockbuster Red tour at London’s O2 Arena on Tuesday.

The big chop was recounted by Swift and her friends, Victoria’s Secret model Cara Delevingne, 21, and singer Ellie Goulding, 27. “Lights” singer Goulding joined Swift onstage earlier that night to perform “Burn” at the arena, which was reportedly packed with more than 15,500 fans.

The 24-year-old “Everything Has Changed” singer also gave her Instagram followers a first-person account of the salon seat experience, posting a video of several witnesses watching the shearing in excitement. 

“This is how many people are watching me get a haircut right now,” she said in the clip, panning the camera to capture the cheering wintesses. “We don’t do anything without an audience, do we?”

"@taylorswift chopping off her locks,” Delevingne wrote, sharing a pic of the pop crooner in the salon seat surrounded by people.


Swift later posted a Polaroid snapshot of herself with Goulding, addressing the evening’s events.

“London, I could never thank you enough. See you next time!” she wrote. “PS: short hair, don’t care. (!!!)”

Goulding also shared another “after” photo. In the snapshot, Swift is flanked by the two Brits pointing in shots while she’s jujjing her new bob.

“Just some dorks. And a stellar haircut,” Goulding wrote.

What do you think of Swift’s new look? Stellar or sloppy?
