New Hair 2015: See Celebrity Hair Makeovers

The bob movement is showing no signs of slowing down, and Brooklyn Decker's major chop is proof! We admit, we almost didn't recognize the star as we were scrolling through our Instagram feed and spotted her newly-cut strands, but no surprise here, the chin-length crop is just as flattering as her trademark supermodel layers. Decker rarely changes up her hairstyle, but when she does, she goes all out---she first tried out a bob back in 2011, and after a brief stint with bangs, the model worked a brunette hue from October of 2012 into the following year. Her latest 'do is the first big hair change she has made in two years, but like all good things, we think this style was well worth the wait.
