Sofia Richie's long blonde hair may have been a signature part of her look, but it's not any longer—pun, intended. The 17-year-old model decided to switch up her style, debuting a short new 'do on Instagram on Friday.

Richie, the daughter of singer Lionel Richie, has traditionally rocked long blonde hair. However, she decided to let trusty stylist Andy Lecompte take the plunge on Friday, and she took to social media to show off her new shoulder-length blonde lob. "Yup we chopped it," she captioned. Her roots are left dark for a dramatic ombre effect, and the style looks amazing on her.

The young model is wearing high-waist white pants and a dark green crop top in the picture, showing off her toned, tanned abs. However, her new hairstyle is definitely the star of the show—it gives the budding star a chic, sophisticated look.
