Stop the presses: Adele has a new haircut!

The world said "Hello" to the songstress's piecey new bob in a performance during Sunday night's season finale of Britain's The X Factor—and ... they love it! The new 'do takes just a few inches off her previous lob, and features flattering, face-framing layers that give her strands plenty of volume and movement:

This isn't the first time the beloved British singer has utilized The X Factor to premier something new. In October she teased a 30-second snippet of "Hello" during a commercial break, causing immediate pandemonium and speculation about a new album. Luckily for us, the tune did in fact turn out to be the first single off her third studio album, 25, and went on to break nearly every record known to man.
