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.

Love the cut. Think I’ll try it when my layers grow out.

Brad on

She is one ugly moo!

Lacey on

Much better!

sas on

It’s a shame the girls got Bruce’s looks and not Demi’s.

BulldogMom on

LOVE the blonde and cut!! Much more flattering!

Kara on

I like the color and cut. This poor girl is so unfortunate looking though.

JC on

The lip injections actually do look good on her. The haircut is much better too. The nose ring is a snarly booger collector though.

LM on

Kara – why?? Why say something rude about her when you don’t have to? I remember in HS, one guy called me ugly once, and it stung for a long time. I can’t imagine random strangers saying that about me constantly.
Plus, I don’t think she is unattractive at all! She just looks like a regular girl her age.
Anyway, love the blond cut. Very cute!

Ru on

Eek! She is still ugly

Susan on

I love the cut! But not on her. Her face is too long for a bob like that, but I do like the color.

george on

She looks adorable. good cut and great colour for her.

hrword on

she is most unattractive. the last thing she needs is an odd color hair to bring more attention to her face.

bj on

Too bad all of Demi’s girls are so unattractive, but this one most of all. I don’t think she could cut her at any style and come out looking good. I don’t know how two not bad looking people, Bruce and Demi, could produce not one but three unattractive offspring. It’s amazing.

Star? Seriously? If it weren’t for mom and dad she would have no career at all, and its not like any of her gimme roles have been leads. As for beauty, well… I think it’s fair to say she inherited the worst features of both parents.

Mimi on

Be nice guys. Not everyone can born beautiful.

winniesmom on

Why all the hurtful comments. I cannot even imagine how the girl would feel if she read them. Are any of you parents? I would be crushed if anyone actually took the time to say hurtful things about my children — let alone my children seeing those comments for themselves. Come on people…. it really is so much easier to give kindness.

Sue on

What a bunch of bullies !!!!

oh dear on

@sas..It’s a shame you’re so caught up in some predefined of what beauty is. She’s lovely as she is.

Sarah on

Potato head.

Atf on

They say good looks skip a generation. This must be that “skipped” generation. Exactly what does she do? For that matter, any of Demi’s girls?

Lexie on

Like the new color and cut a lot. Now take the nose ring out and you’ll look even better.

Bill on

I am shocked that there are people who would actually take the time to make a comment about this no talented media creation. Simply, unbelievable.

JoJo on

Yeah, the ring in the nose really sold me Ha! Not

Ginger on

Rumor, oops I mean Rumer was given a foolish name by her celeb parents. That said, she may not be Ms. Hollywood, but she does the best she can. If she gets rid of the nose ring, that would help. Her eyes are pretty.

Jessica on

I like it but I would suggest lighting the eyebrows… Ppl you are so mean with your unattractive comments! She has feelings too you know.

Georgia on

This poor girl. She gets her face shape from her father and no haircut style she’s had has ever complimented her face. She has two good looking parents but lost the genetic lottery…

Theresa on

I dislike her to begin with. She cannot act her way out of a paper bag – she has two very famous parents who managed to get her into the industry. I guess talent no longer matters. Please write about something of some sort of importance. This celebrity brat’s hair color and style? Meaningless.

Theresa on

And to everyone saying we should all be nice, and what if that was your daughter – she’s not. She is the child of two former super actors, who chooses to put herself in the limelight. When you step into the public eye to make money and gain fame, you are fair game.

JMG on

Why is this news?? There exists no amount of photo shop or plastic surgery to make this person attractive.

I love it

stacey on

attractive nose ring.

Mary on

Get rid of the nose ring.

veggie mama on

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.

Andi In Texas on

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

butters on

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…

JGardner on

Pushing the beauty envelope??? This poor creature is not even in the same zip code as said “beauty envelope”…..

bettyann greco on

nothing pretty about Rumer Willis. NO TALENT either…………

Nancy on

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

skiiy on

That side shot photo of the angular cut is horrid. How much did that hack job cost I wonder? I just don’t understand why this girl gets so much attention other than for her parents. What has she done? She certainly is not pretty to look at, sorry. I know she can’t help how she was born, but really, what is the attraction for her to get so much press? GACK

bitsy on

honestly I think the pink is better. I don’t think she looks good as a blonde at all.

TIa on

To the ones saying too bad the girls didn’t get Demi’s looks…google old pics of Demi, pre plastic surgery. She was decidedly different looking and not in a great way. She looks fantastic now though.

Dee on

This is a comment section, so ppl comment on how they feel, see and dislikes….she is very ugly, has a long horde face and didn’t inherit any of demis beauty……..she does have an idaho potato face its looong….

NoDoubt! on

she is not pretty

Jeri on

Too bad all of Demi’s girls are so unattractive, but this one most of all. I don’t think she could cut her at any style and come out looking good. I don’t know how two not bad looking people, Bruce and Demi, could produce not one but three unattractive offspring. It’s amazing
