Miranda Lambert Cuts Her Hair Even Shorter

08/19/2014 at 11:01 AM ET

The last time we checked in on Miranda Lambert‘s hair, she was styling it in a prim and pretty “lob” in the vein of her “Mama’s Broken Heart” persona (pre-meltdown). But lately she’s been “zhuzzing” it up with a more piecey, rocker vibe — and now she’s taken it to the next level.

And of course, by next-level, we mean into full bob territory. “Fresh cut! Fresh color! “Somethin’ bout PLATINUM! Thanks @amandacraig12! Love you,” Lambert captioned the photo, which she posted to Instagram Monday night. The new color, of course, is in tribute to her most recent album and just-kicked-off Platinum tour — and we wonder if the cut is too. It’s got an edgy rocker vibe that goes with some of her sassier new songs (you’ve heard “Something Bad,” right?) with lots of flippy layers, long sideswept bangs, and a chin-grazing length shorter than she’s gone before.

One definite advantage of her new short cut? It’s sure to dry much faster than her old extensions would have after undertaking the Ice Bucket Challenge, which she did with Thomas Rhett this weekend. Oh, and it’s super-cute. That’s the other advantage.

Does anyone else see a resemblance to Melissa Etheridge in that photo???

The pic on the left looks like a tranney from a Lifetime movie but the pic on the right is pretty.

You asked for my opinion so here goes – First the new do changes her looks (almost didn’t recognize her) 2nd, it’s not as attractive as her long hair 3rd if she wants a shorter do she should have gone to a really good stylist. The cut she has looks like she went to any old chop shop!. She is entitled to wear her hair anyway she wants, she’s the only one who has to like it (well, maybe Blake) and I agree her talent is what counts. But you asked and all my friends & I hate it!

Shorter hair is great with a beautiful face like hers, but this cut looks like a mess!

Well, she has that smile and that is one thing I love about Miranda,of course her talent is out of this world. This gal in photo with her is Blake’s hair stylist since he started The Voice. Miranda does look very tired and her hair looks thin, altho I probably would’nt have hair if I went thru what she goes thru. I just recently read Blake’s ex wife say she is just now getting her her back since the divorce said it came out in clumps. I mean thats 8 years ago. Stress is rough on the hair….

She’s not wearing any makeup. I hardly recognized her.

Not her best look. Love her anyway though. Let it grow long again.

Without the makeup artist, she pretty much looks like everyone else!

Losing weight, cutting hair short. Trying to look young for husband.

Nooooo—not good. She needs long hair. It was so pretty.
