She may not have pink hair anymore, but Rumer Willis is still pushing the beauty envelope. The actress debuted a new cut and color change over the weekend, and it’s time to talk about it.

Rumer not only went back to blonde (she had a similar hue last summer), but the star also cut several inches off her chest-length strands, sporting an asymmetrical long bob. Naturally, she gave a peek at her new look on Instagram, posting two dramatic photos from a shoot she did with Tyler Shields. “Love my new hair do courtesy of @domdomhair captured by the main man @thetylershields,” she captioned the below photo, recognizing the guy behind her cut, Dominick Serna, a stylist The Chris McMillan salon in L.A.

Photographer Shields also shared a series of images on his blog of Willis’s angular chop. The star poses topless in the photos, and reveals that she also has a large section of her head shaved on the back of her neck.

So what inspired the new do? “I’ve been dyeing my hair a lot and it’s been kind of getting trashed at the ends … I just got to a point where I just wanted to cut it all off, kind of start fresh. I think with women, we put so much of our emotional stuff in our hair, and I think sometimes you just want to kind of chop it off and start over,” she tells PEOPLE at Just Jared’s Summer Fiesta.

And as for the blonde: “I started going to see Amber at 901 Salon who did it for me, and I just really like the color. I was going to put blue back on the ends, but it’s just such a great blonde that I just didn’t want to change it!” she says. So, is she having more fun? “You’ll have to come back to me in a couple of months and I’ll tell you,” she says. “I think any color hair, you have more fun as long as you have the right attitude about it.”

What do you think of her new do? Are you a fan? Share your thoughts below.

The haircut and color look really good. Now she has to just accept herself on the inside and the outside will glow. Even if a person is not classically attractive, it’s their love of life, kindness to others and positive attitude that can make a huge difference even in how others perceive her. Most of all, it’s how she learns to love herself as she is and make the most from what she has. I like the new look. It’s positive. Smile.

Too bad nothing she tries will EVER make her an attractive girl!

It’s a shame every time one of Bruce and Demi girls are pictured there always are comments about how unattractive they are…they may not possess typical blue eyes, blonde hair or look like Demi however I think they look more interesting because they don’t and they can look very striking. All these negative comments they must have had to endure goes a long way towards teaching girls how to have bad self esteem and really do strangers or anyone have the right to put down, judge physical attributes so harshly? How unkind we can be…

I hope all her hair falls out. LEAVE it ALONE or it will. Identity crisis or what? You and Rhianna.
