Now that’s a makeover! Katie Holmes said goodbye to her long hair when she debuted a brand new pixie cut on Thursday, Oct. 19, and she looked so adorable! We think Katie lost about 12 inches of her chestnut locks, and the result is giving us major Twiggy vibes. Watch the video below to see Katie’s daring new look!

Katie actually seemed a little hesitant to show off the new look. She headed into the LA airport sporting sunglasses and a big black hat, which she only removed while going through security. At first it was unclear why Katie made the bold hair choice, but on Oct. 25 she revealed that the daring look is for her upcoming film Doorman, which is in pre-production right now and is set to come out in 2018. “It’s for a role,” she told People. “I’m getting ready to play a woman in a movie called The Doorman. She’s an ex-Marine and she’s a warrior. I’m excited. I’m training. I’m sore,” she joked.

According to stylist DJ Quintero, Katie really wanted to “find a balance between something feminine but kickass ’cause she’s working really hard — her body looks incredible. She really wanted it to move on camera, so it was actually like three haircuts. We did it over the weekend and it kind of got shorter and shorter and shorter.” Baby steps, right?!

This is the shortest hair Katie has ever had, and it’s a perfect low-maintenance look for a mom on the go. Katie is super busy acting, taking care of her adorable daughter Suri Cruise,
spending time with boyfriend Jamie Foxx, and now taking a business course at Harvard, so she needs something easy and cute that works with every outfit. We think she chose the perfect style for her!
