Celeb beauty fact: Jessica Alba loves to change up her hair. A few months ago the actress went from blonde to brunette and back again in less than 24 hours. (It was for a role, but still.) Now, she’s just debuted a chic new cut that has editors buzzing — and contemplating a trip to the salon.

Alba hit the red carpet at Tuesday’s Stand Up to Cancer event in Culver City, Calif., sporting a fresh chop courtesy of celeb-loved hairstylist Jen Atkin. It looks like the star lost about 3 inches from her ends, chopping off most of her lighter ombré highlights. “Just Chopped! @jessicaalba serving us a fresh ‘Fashion-Bob’ #TexturedEnds #LongFront,” Atkin captioned the below photo on Instagram, showing off the style from every angle. From now on, we’re calling this new asymmetrical fashion-bob “The Alba.”

And the star was definitely loving her new do, posting her own photo on Insta with the mane master. She teamed the look with a deep bordeaux pout and soft smoky eye.

She usually looks great but in these pics she looks like they put a plastic bag over her head and then took it off really quick, giving her that static hair look. Not her best look.

Cute. The lipstick is too dark for her but I like the hair. She’s so gorgeous, she can do anything.

Glad she got rid of the damaged ends, but it’s still a no. She looks classy, glamorous and sexy with long hair.

Seriously,John? on

The same haircut that millions of women have is now called ‘The Alba’ simply because Jessica has it?

Have we changed the definition of “bob”? Every time People reports someone sporting a “bob” they look like they just got a trim.
