It’s many girls’ worst nightmare: Sitting in a stylist’s chair when he decides at the spur of the moment to cut some heretofore undiscussed layers or bangs. But not every girl is Idina Menzel, and not every hairdresser is renowned celeb stylist Ted Gibson. The two teamed up Thursday morning for a fan meet-and-greet, and before you could say Adele Dazeem, Menzel was rocking some fresh new fringe.

“Impulsive two minute haircut… BANG!” the Frozen and If/Then star captioned the above photo on Instagram, calling out Gibson’s handle and flashing a huge smile to demonstrate her enthusiasm for the new do.

Gibson posted his own photo (below) to show another angle of the cut, writing “Side swept bangs help to bring out your eyes like this quick two minute bangs are bangin’ today on @idinamenzel … #hairchangeseverything how’s your hair xo.” Makeup artist Matin Maulawizada chimed in to praise Menzel for her fresh face and Gibson for his “BANG-up job” — there was a lot of love flying around the Menzel glam squad this morning.

We love the softer, romantic look on the star, though as any curly girl can attest, bangs can be fun until you have to maintain them oneself. We can’t wait to see how Menzel styles them next. Do you love Menzel’s new look? Are you proud of us for writing this whole post without a single ‘Let It Go’ joke? Share your feelings below.

Ick. Horrible choice to match her scratch-on-chalkboard-annoying voice.
