lobs for all.

We think 2015 might be a year of change for Selena Gomez. She supposed cracked up at SNL's parody of her exboyfriend Justin Bieber, she (maybe) is dating the super cool DJ Zedd, and now she's traded in her signature, flowing locks for a new choppy lob—and January isn't even over yet. 

Gomez debuted her new look on Instagram while wearing a pair of gold, Almost Famous-inspired sunglasses, adding a definite element of glamour to the shot. Her trademark style has always been natural, but now her layers add a new carefree element to her appearence. This isn't the Selena that dominated the Disney channel years ago—her fuss-free, choppy locks make her look all grown up and a whole lot edgier.

While the 22-year-old has been working on films and music steadily, we're not sure if her new cut is fresh for a role or just a refreshing change of appearence. Short haircuts are all the rage in Taylor Swift's inner circle. Maybe getting the chop is just another part of being in the pop princess's girl gang—not a bad deal, if you ask us.
