Scarlett Johansson Gets a Major Haircut (With Weeks to Go Before Her Due Date!)

07/29/2014 at 05:41 PM ET

We imagine there are few experiences more uncomfortable than being eight months pregnant in N.Y.C. in July. Scarlett Johansson may agree with that assessment. After debuting a chin-grazing bob in June, the mom-to-be showed off an even shorter cut Tuesday while out running errands with fiancé Romain Dauriac, and there’s no denying this is an easier, breezier (and more ventilated) look than her formerly long locks.

Johansson, who is due in August, hasn’t said much about her impending arrival, instead letting her growing belly do most of the talking. When she first stepped out amid news that she was expecting, Johansson still sported her signature side-parted dark-blonde waves and a super-glam dress, but as the months have gone by, her hair has gotten shorter and blonder while her clothes have gotten significantly less restrictive.

We liked her cute new cut last month and were surprised to see that she took it even further, sporting a sideswept short cut just this side of pixie that lands at about her earlobes and is asymmetrically shorn into a peak at the back with a little bit of an undercut as well. She also appears to have gone a shade or two blonder, giving the whole look a very mod feel.

The actress had motherhood on the brain a few months ago when she chatted with WSJ, saying, “There must exist a world in which I can balance those things, be able to raise a family and still make a film a year, or work on my own, develop things, do theater. I want to be able to have it all, selfishly. I know that with that there will be some sacrifices. I know that’s the struggle with working mothers and successful careers. It happens.”

What do you think of Johansson’s new do? And seriously, how cute is that baby going to be?

Dear People,

I love Johansson’s new do, I remember as a mother what you need is a haircut get up and go kind. Being a mother requires a lot of work.

Her nanny will work harder.

You can get up and go with long hair, tie it back, up or throw it in a braid. It’s the fancy styling that’s a time-suck. Either way, I’d never cut my hair so short because I have a child. A lot of things need to be sacrificed for parenthood, my long hair, never.

Long hair is SO much easier to maintain, than short. Especially with the invention of dry shampoo, and the top knot being instyle. Done and done.

She certainly looks like someone’s mom now.

Jenna on

I can’t even explain how much I hate it.
