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?

I as a fan personally don’t like it I think it should have been cut at least one inch shorter and not as short as it is now because shakira is pretty as is and It will take a long time to grow back to the length it was
