Sky Ferreira Cuts Her Hair Into A Bob… With A Knife?!

Ever since she first burst on the music scene back in 2009, Sky Ferreira has practically trademarked her long Barbie blonde locks. Sure, her signature California girl cut may have undergone several incarnations over the years, from waist-length and wavy as a baby-faced newcomer all the way to platinum and straight earlier this spring, but we’ve never seen anything quite so dramatic as this. After sporting long hair for what seems like forever, the 20-year-old took a cue from Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Karlie Kloss yesterday and CHOPPED. IT. ALL. OFF. We know, we can’t believe it, either—but pictures don’t lie, people. Not only did she cut 6-plus inches off the length, Terry Richardson was there to document the entire thing (of course).

We first got a teaser of what went down thanks to Sky’s Instagram, and now we can see the entire process in context over at Terry’s Diary. However, unlike Miley and Karlie, who also snapped themselves doing the chop with classic surprised/uncertain/”OMG, I can’t believe I’m doing this!” expressions, Sky’s face here looks a little more… confident? Committed? Rebellious? She IS wielding a knife about a 1/2 inch from her skull, after all.

This drastic change probably was a long time coming, considering the singer told us back in the fall that her hair is damaged from all the dye. BUT STILL. We’re impressed that she took the plunge (in such a bold way), and the tousled, mussed-up texture totally works with her effortlessly-cool style. Now the next question is, will she stick to schoolgirl skirts and cropped tops, or will this short cut affect her wardrobe, as well?

What do you think of Sky’s new look?!
