Out of all twentysomethings in Hollywood, Shailene Woodley most embodies a free spirit. Sure, she has an Instagram, but you won’t find her posting Kylie Jenner–esque selfies on there. So when we were wondering if she changed her hair recently, we had to resort to other means. And thank God for the paparazzi, because if it wasn’t for them, we would’ve never known that the 26-year-old actress chopped her long, mousy brown hair into gorgeous, wispy new bangs.
The “Big Little Lies” star showed off her new bangs this week on two occasions. The first was at an HBO party at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, on Saturday, where she dressed down her new hair with a hoodie, jeans, and messy bun.
Woodley elevated her look on Wednesday when she stepped out at Valentino’s Spring Summer 2018 at Paris Fashion Week flaunting a leopard-print dress, shin-high boots, and fresh-cut bangs. Woodley styled her bangs with a semitight topknot, leaving the sides of hair to cascade down her face and her fringe to fall naturally over her forehead.
In addition to her new hair, the actress also debuted her new boyfriend, rugby player Ben Volavola, whom she shared a kiss with at the event and posed for silly Instagram pictures with.
New man and new hair—2018 is already shaping up to be a good year for Woodley.
