Fresh off of the Rock of Ages press tour, Julianne Hough is rocking a fresh look. But her new brunette wig — worn on the set of her latest film, Safe Haven — isn’t what we’re interested to see.

In a radio interview with boyfriend Ryan Seacrest last week, Hough revealed that she chopped off her hair for the role. “I thought I would give you a little surprise when I see you,” she joked to her shocked beau. “I actually literally just cut it all off.”

Hough said she didn’t go ‘Charlize style’ — “It’s not buzzed,” she shared — but apparently her new ‘do (still blonde) hits just below her chin. “I’m very excited,” she added.

The actress went brunette in November of 2010 (though later told PEOPLE that Seacrest prefers her as a blonde), and just last year, cut her hair to her chin, too.

Safe Haven, currently shooting in Wilmington, NC, also stars Josh Duhamel, who recently changed up his hairstyle for a different film.

That’s an interesting hair style for her, I like her with her other hair, sorry Girl, but she still looks great with this hair color!

it’s called acting people sometimes you have to dye your hair for a role. for example Joanne Woodward had to for Rachel Rachel in 1967 right she dyed her then graying blonde hair brown for the part and nobody said anything

I have seen her in person with her new shorter style, and I must say, it is adorable! Ran into her in Southport where she is currently filming when I was on vacation last week.

I think she’s gorgeous no matter what color her hair is. Hard to be hateful just cause she looks better than most of us ever will. :) :)
