The Bring It On actress stepped out in style to attend the Bottega Veneta runway show on Sept. 24, wearing a sleek black sweater, cuffed denim jeans and black angular heels. And while her effortlessly chic outfit was noteworthy, it was her dramatic hair change that stole the spotlight.
Kirsten, who chopped off a total of six inches, per her hairstylist Marcus Francis, unveiled a wavy chin-length bob at the fashion show.
"She's always inspired to do something different," Marcus exclusively told E! News, "and since she felt her length was 'just there' and didn't feel interesting, she was ready for a change."
Marcus noted that they originally thought about doing bangs, but decided to cut her hair the shortest it's been in 17 years.
"We talked about the length she had in her film Melancholia since that felt cool, fresh, yet chic," the hairstylist explained. "I don't think we really planned the cut around her being at Bottega Veneta."
He continued, "But as I was cutting her hair, she did tell me she was going to Milan for a show and that's when I knew, 'You better nail this cut Marcus.'"
As for how Marcus achieved Kirsten's new 'do? Per a press release, he used Olivia Garden products, including the brand's Cara Shears to "cut the weight out of the ends to give the hair movement" and thinned out areas "to make sure the cut didn't go too triangular."
While most people opt for bobs to beat the heat of summer, Kirsten's new cut is a refreshing style for the fall season. But don't just take our word for it.
