Taylor Swift must know how much we hate being kept in suspense, because she didn’t make us wait long to find out whether her maybe-haircut was an actual chop or just an Instagram illusion. And as it turns out, she’s not just quick to fulfill the wishes of PEOPLE StyleWatch editors, she’s also a woman of her word: When she said “I just need a haircut,” she meant it.

The star was spotted walking around Perth, Australia before a concert, wearing her newly shortened locks loose and wavy. Previously, her bangs were so heavy she could “use [them] as a sleep mask,” and her thick blonde locks cascaded over her shoulders. Her new look is much breezier and lighter, with her bangs thinned and parted to the side and her curls just grazing the nape of her neck.

For as long as we can remember, Swift has sported the same long, layered cut — whether worn curly or straight — so this shorter, more swingy style is a fun and refreshing change of pace.

Do you like Swift’s shorter hair? Think you’ll go for your own big cut in 2014? Weigh in below!

All scissors need to be confiscated from all Hollywood and New York stylists immediately! Enough with all the chopping. Taylor looked incredible on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show. She should have left it alone!

Thank you Taylor so much! You looked so much better with short, curly hair and I was just waiting for you to go back to your natural hairstyle. Your blunt bangs weren’t for you. Bring back curly!

It’s obvious the pic on the left is a wig, so no “heavy” bangs in sight.

You can not tell she had a haircut, based off this picture. It just looks like the windy is blowing her hair around. This minimal haircut, is hardly anything to report about.

OK, it looks like she had like a 2″ trim maybe. Wow, that’s CRAZY. Seriously, is this something to report on?

or this just in…air blows Taylor Swift’s hair out of place. c’mon

BBB on

That’s called a trim and removal of hair pieces. Come on People.

Taylor looks good with the new hair cut…….even more beautiful than before.

The pic on the left is not a full wig…maybe extensions to thicken her hair but not a full wig. She took off maybe 3 inches and wrote her bangs in a different style. I’m not impressed. She looks good but this is not exciting news.
