New mom, new haircut! Ali Larter recently freshened her hairstyle, debuting a brand-new bob on the red carpet earlier this month. “Ali was looking for a totally re-vamped look,” salon owner Andy LeCompte, Larter’s hairdresser and a Wella Professionals celebrity stylist, tells PEOPLE. “Cutting your hair is a big step for a lot of people, and Ali has had long hair for years. She was excited and ready for the change.”

Thankfully, the actress has no regrets. “She really had a strong idea that she was ready for a fresh new look and was not uncertain at all,” LeCompte shares. “Ali is loving her new cut! She loves the freedom and ease of it.”

In fact, it’s quite easy for the star to transform her hairstyle in a matter of minutes. “She can take her look from every day to the red carpet by adding something as easy as a deep side part, or adding texture with a product like Wella Professionals ocean spritz beach texture spray,” LeCompte explains.

And the style works well for new moms like Larter, too. “Shorter hair is great for fuss-free styling, which complements the busy lives of moms everywhere — not just in Hollywood,” he shares. “I also think new moms experience this newfound confidence and find it liberating to not hide behind their hair.”

LeCompte predicts that other trendsetters will likely follow in Larter’s footsteps soon. “For so long the ideal hair for a woman was long, flowy and down to your hips,” he shares. “Women are experimenting more and are realizing that you don’t have to sacrifice your femininity if you cut your hair.” Tell us: What do you think of Larter’s latest look?
