Surprise!

Katie Holmes debuted a new pixie cut on Thursday while catching a flight out of New York City. The 38-year-old brunette, who previously rocked wavy, shoulder-length hair, arrived while wearing a black fedora that concealed her hairstyle and also complimented her stylish look—a striped 3/4-sleeve sweater, cropped blue jeans, shiny red slip-on loafers and a black purse. She then took her hat, bag and shoes off as she walked through airport security.

Holmes has sported a pixie cut before; She debuted one in 2008.

It is unclear if Holmes' new 'do is for an acting role.

The next project she is set to film is the movie Doorman, an action-thriller about a female Marine who returns home from war, befriends a NYC apartment building doorman and faces off against a gang of thieves. The film also stars Léon: The Professional actor Jean Reno.
