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!

MOST women look better with their hair at or above their shoulders….this long long mermaid hair brings their whole face down.

Wow! Last week, it was the story of the week that Reese Witherspoon got a super short hair-cut … which was really just a trim. And, this week, we have Taylor Swift walking in the wind. Thank goodness, People can dig deep for the real story. Seriously, nothing more interesting to discuss. (And, yes, I realize that I did click on the link … but I was actually hoping that Taylor had done something dramatic with her hair.)

The weave will be back in next week.

Well with the wind blowing the hair, you can not really tell it was cut at all. Bad picture and to report on it, should have waited for a still, indoor shot of the new haircut.

She didn’t get a haircut, she just removed her extensions and got a trim.

I love the shorter version. I’m tired of all these people in the music or movie industry who think it is attractive to have their hair parted right down the middle and hair hanging near their eyes. So out of date! But just my own opinion.
