Check Out Leighton Meester's New (Way Shorter!) Hairdo

So long, Blair Waldorf! It took less than one week from the Gossip Girl wrap party for Leighton Meester to begin distancing herself from her character. How she did it? By cutting her hair. (And ditching those headbands, of course.)

The actress showed off her choppy above-the-shoulder bob at a Flaunt Magazine party in West Hollywood, Calif. on Thursday.

Last month, the star hinted to The Cut that she might do away with her character’s signature long, wavy locks after the show finished filming. “I haven’t really been able to change my hair for six years — and I used to do it all the time,” she said. “So I think if the mood strikes me, I’ll cut my hair or dye it or try different things.”

We wonder if a new hair color is up next? Maybe she’ll go back to her roots: she is a natural blonde, after all. Tell us: What do you think of Meester’s short new ‘do?

looks bad….she tried to go edgy, I guess, but it looks bad on her…she seems too cookie cutter or something

What a joke.

shorter…yes; way shorter would be a Miley Cyrus ‘do. I think with a little tweeking it will look really cute.

Love the girl, but that’s no haircut, it’s a hair faux-pas!

Major ewww.

Her hair isn’t cut, it’s pulled up in the back with the sides left loose. I like the color better, it makes her eyes show up more and they’re beautiful.

Ed on

great haircut

Kimi on

Did she pull it into a ponytail, snip it at the rubber band and walk out the door?
