Just in time for the holidays, Shakira debuted a new do on Twitter Tuesday. The Colombian singer, on holiday in Barcelona, popped into a salon and chopped several inches off of her hair.

According to photographers on the scene, the singer spent more than six hours inside the Jordi Ripoll salon, which opened just for her. After getting her cut — and posting a cute pic to Twitter (right) — Shakira reportedly went straight for boyfriend Gerard Pique‘s apartment.

Since Shakira has had pretty long locks for quite some time, the new style is definitely a change, but the sharp bob and fringe-y bangs — similar to Katy Perry’s new cut — are very flattering. Tell us: What do you think of Shakira’s new look?

Her hair was looking really damaged. I wonder why she doesn’t try going dark, she looks cute with light hair, but I think she would look great with dark, and not damage her hair so much.

Home girl needs to put down the peroxide and go back to her natural, dark roots. It’s ridiculous that you have to go blonde and erase almost every trace of your ethnicity to “make it” in Hollywood. It’s kind of insulting actually.

She keeps on being the same “negrita”, whether they die her hair, chop it, whatever. She´s an indian.

This is a ” I need to cut off all my dead hair cut” I know because I had to do it myself. She’ll get extensions again, trust me. The growing out faze of this cut is annoying.

cute cut, but i agree, the yellow sucks! she needs to stay with her natural hair color.

her make-up is THE WORST. Her foundation is too light, her lipstick has too much of a blue undertone. Even the blonde color in her hair is brassy. UGH. She could be SO much prettier if she warmed up her hair color and her make-up.

Cut is just OK. The hair color isn’t very flattering at all. The lipstick color doesn’t suit her either. She’s usually such a stunner, this pic is waaay off for her!

Not everyone can be blonde…this color is horrendous. She should go more beige like J-Lo, would be soooooo much more flattering than this chicken-fat yellow she has. Yuck!

I liked it better long it was more flattering on her and suited her style better but she’s had it long forever I’m sure she’s enjoying something different for a change.
