Short hair, don't care! 

Grey's Anatomy alum Sara Ramirez recently took the liberating plunge into the world of cropped 'dos, and boy is she rocking it. The actress shared a selfie of her chic buzz cut on Instagram, sending fans into a frenzy upon realizing her brunette locks were no more. 

Not to fret, Dr. Callie Torres went short for a great cause! Ramirez documented the often-terrifying before and after moment where her long braid was chopped right off, telling social media followers she'd be donating it to Locks of Love—an organization that makes wigs for children suffering from medical conditions that cause their hair to fall out.

"Whelp, this just happened! Welcome #Change #LetItGo," she captioned the snapshot, adding, "Donating to #LocksOfLove"

Ramirez isn't the first celeb to chop her hair off in honor of those in need. 

Shailene Woodley donated more than eight inches of her locks to the organization in preparation for her role as a cancer patient in 2014's The Fault in Our Stars. And back in 2012, country star Kellie Pickler went short in solidarity of her best friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer. Pro snowboarder Shaun White also chopped his signature orange waves clear off for the popular cause. 

Now this is a hair trend we can get on board with.
