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!

Her neck looks a foot longer!

She’s so annoying and unattractive. Honey, get an education and do something productive for society.

I think I agree with Lenny. I realize all girls like change, but Ms. Swift’s hair was gorgeous as it was. And he’s right….at the VS fashion show I thought she was beautiful and could easily have been one of the Angels rather than the entertainment.

its ridic the details they give of this cut. its not that big a change. geez come over to my house my hair looks different day by day!

I think it’s adorable in the picture shown, but it’s not like a celebrity hair cut is really permanent. You and I would be stuck growing a cut out for a year or two…..celebs are back to “normal” a week after the “life changing” chop…….Beyonce’s “crop” as the latest example, and yet we don’t comment on the wigs and weaves. The giant celebrity elephant in the room.

What is it with these female stars lately? They are like a bunch of dumb lambs being led to the hair slaughter by self-important hairdressers! Most of them looked really good with long hair…most of them look really awful with various types of short versions. It’s like they’re saying, let me see just how ugly I can make myself! And, there is NOTHING wrong with long hair and NOTHING wrong with wearing the same hair style for years…if it ain’t broken as they say!

Sarah on

Now if she’d lose the red lipstick…
