In 2014, an ever-changing look is just another part of the pop star life plan, with familiar faces like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga switching up their hair colors and styles approximately once a week.

It’s only fitting that she debuted this blunt bob while presenting her new intimates collection in Germany—the medium length and curled-in ends have Brit looking less like a former teenybopper and more like a real businesswoman.
