Camila Cabello debuted a dramatic new ‘do this week and she will never be the same. Well, until her hair grows back in at least. The 23-year-old singer shared several stunning snaps showcasing her freshly chopped locks on Thursday, October 22. “LOST MY SHORT HAIR VIRGINITY!!!!” she wrote in her first post. “I’ve had long hair all my life it’s TIME TO FEEL THE AIR ON THESE SHOULDERS BABY.” Camila’s words captioned a gorgeous photo of her flaunting the new hairstyle in an alleyway. Her love Shawn Mendes snapped the pic himself and made sure he got credit too, commenting: “Phot cred.”
Camila’s second post sent fans into overdrive. She hugs her 22-year-old man like a koala in the at-home photo. The caption was fitting, reading: “heheheheheh,” and so was a comment from one of her friends. “King and queen of matching haircuts,” digital media strategist Alex Goldschmidt quipped. Honestly, we can’t unsee it now.
The Cuban-American star’s curly shag cut is the shortest we’ve seen on her yet. Celebrity hairstylist Dimitri Giannetos snipped Camila’s lengthy locks into the chic lob. “C A M I L A is serving a SHAG BOB,” he proudly wrote on his page. “New short hair for my muse @camila_cabello by urs truly!! First time Camila is trying short hair and I LOVEEE IT!” Specialist Sarah Conner gave Camila the “permanent waves,” calling her an “insanely talented, beautiful inside and out soul.”
Apparently Camila has always wanted to try a shorter look. The talent was free to try something different after wrapping her new movie Cinderella, in which she plays the title role. Generally, actors are contractually obligated to keep their hair a certain way while filming a movie. We love the shakeup, Camila!
