Kaley Cuoco Talks 'Big' Haircut: 'My Inspiration Was Michelle Williams'

06/13/2014 at 03:10 PM ET

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes — a drastic haircut?! Newlywed Kaley Cuoco debuted a dramatically shorter hairdo earlier this month, and she couldn’t be happier.

“This haircut was big for me,” The Big Bang Theory star told reporters at Rebecca Taylor’s launch of the Little White Dress Collection benefiting Baby Buggy in Los Angeles. “I cut off like 10 inches and I love it. I haven’t had my hair short in over 20 years so I needed a change. It’s the best decision I’ve ever made.”

Cuoco added that photos of one actress in particular motivated her to go for the chop.

“I wanted it to be my own, but my inspiration was Michelle Williams’s Louis Vuitton campaign,” she told PEOPLE. “I loved that haircut so much. I didn’t try to copy it, but I liked that look on her.”

Her favorite part of her new ‘do is how versatile it is.”It’s funny, I actually feel like I can do this hair a thousand times more differently than I could do with my long hair. I feel like it can be edgy, it can be cute, ’60s … kind of whatever I’m feeling.”

In addition to her new hair, Cuoco is loving her new house (formerly owned by Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom) and married life with husband Ryan Sweeting.

“We’re loving our new home and loving being married,” she said. “It’s been really wonderful. You always have your best friend there. He’s always there, which is nice, and he knows that about me.”

So are she and Sweeting ready to expand their family?

“Not quite yet, but we can’t wait,” Cuoco shared. “I’ve dreamed of being a mom. I surround myself with a lot of dogs, so maybe it will be a lot of kids as well!”

Are you a fan of Cuoco’s new cut? Sound off in the comments!

Hey, there on

Why is there an article every time this gal gets a haircut? I don’t get the significance. I could see a photo with a comment, but a whole article?

That’s not “super short.” I like it, it’s a cute cut on her, but it’s far from “super short.”

Love it on

Love the hair! She’s gorgeous!

LOVE her, but not that cut! It ages her about 10+ years!

She looks like a mess.

I love it, love the actress – she’s great – but its hysterical that her haircut is the “best decision she’s ever made”. lol

Finally, a celebrity who actually gives credit to another celeb for the inspiration behind the haircut. She looks stunning!

Best decision she ever made, what a statement. I would normally attribute that to getting married, getting a big job, or having kids not getting a haircut. I had a taco for lunch, best decision I ever made lol.

The last time she used the phrase “it was the best decision I ever made” was in reference to her boob job at 18 years of age. I don’t think that phrase means what she thinks it means.

It totally sucks. She was cute before, now she’s not even on the radar.
