After a year-long reign as Hollywood's favorite cut, the lob is taking it from here as this season's gotta-have-it hairstyle. And to illustrate the point is Kate Beckinsale, who's freshly chopped 'do is the answer to everyone's fall haircut prayers.
Parting ways with at least a foot of hair, the actress' new do is still in medium-length hair territory, and (of course) is practically made to showcase her staple curls. By the looks of it, Kate's hair may be just a smidge darker as well—or it could just be that her mane has taken on a more chocolate hue now that her long "bronde" ombré is no more.
The 42-year-old has long since been a hair icon among celebs, with lengthy brunette locks that always seem to have that perfect beach-wave-bounce. Truthfully, we're not sure she's ever had a bad hair day. And especially now with her new haircut, that's not likely to change.
We'll give it to Kate here: This look just became the most fall-perfect hairstyle of the season.
