Bye-bye bangs, hello long bob! We figured Taylor Swift was up to something when she posted pictures of her seemingly shorter ‘do to Instagram, but we couldn’t tell if it had actually been cut, or a camera trick combined with an aptly-placed Valencia filter. Turns out, it was the real deal — Swift was spotted in Perth, Australia shortly before taking the stage at her concert, rocking shoulder-length layers with choppy side swept bangs. Although heavy fringe was her signature look, she felt that she was overdue for an update. “While in the studio I came to the realization that my bangs are long enough to use as a sleep mask on long flights,” she wrote. “Then I remembered I don’t ever use sleep masks on flights. So really, I just need a haircut.” Change is good, and we think she wears her new look well. Tell us: Do you like Taylor’s cut, or do you miss her trademark style?
