Leave it to Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting to welcome a new season with a fresh new look. Over the weekend, the star cut her long layers into a shoulder-skimming bob — after posting the entire process to Instagram, of course. Not to be outdone by Taylor Swift’s very-public haircut a few months ago, Cuoco took to Instagram to post up a series of photos documenting each step of the transformation, including a hilarious shot of her hairstylist Christine Symonds mid-chop. The Big Bang Theory star’s lengthy blonde strands have been her trademark for years, and the last time she dabbled in a shorter style was back in 2007. We couldn’t help but double-tap the style when we spotted it on our Instagram feed over the weekend — the length is a welcome update for spring, and we love how her well-placed highlights are in line with the ever-trendy ombre effect.

Update: Joke’s on us! Cuoco was only rocking a faux bob in her Instagram photos.
