Kaia Gerber (opens in new tab) just debuted a new haircut (opens in new tab) that is, in her own words, a dramatic change.

The model (and daughter of famous supermodel Cindy Crawford) chopped her signature long locks into a short, sleek chin-length bob (opens in new tab). She took to Instagram to share the look with her fans, dubbing it "the drama cut" in her caption.

Kaia's new 'do comes courtesy of Guido Palau (opens in new tab), the global creative director for Redken (opens in new tab), and his first assistant, Sandy Hullett (opens in new tab), who is a master stylist herself. Because, apparently, when you're creating a work of hair art and the canvas is Kaia Gerber's head, it's a two person job.

Kaia's first pic of the new look was a relatively low-key bathroom mirror selfie (opens in new tab), but TBH, she looks as sultry in the photo as she would in any magazine shoot or runway show. Behold:

Guido, for his part, has been styling the most famous hair in the fashion industry for years now, including Kaia's mom, Cindy Crawford (opens in new tab), Victoria "Posh Spice No More (opens in new tab)" Beckham, and models for runway shows for top brands like Marc Jacobs (opens in new tab) and Prada (opens in new tab).

"Start with changing your part," Guido told Refinery29 (opens in new tab) last fall of his advice for normal women looking to change their own look. "So many people are locked into the way they part the hair, aren’t they? It’s a tiny little thing. Even trying a new product or letting your hair air dry (opens in new tab) — small things. Try these things at home, not when you’re going out. See whether you feel confident. You might want to go back to your original style, but what we love about seeing models or celebrities on runways or red carpets is their chameleon-like approach (opens in new tab) to themselves, it’s attractive."
