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.

I never noticed until this pic with a horribly shaped face she has. I long and like…lurch from the Adams family. I always thought she was very attractive until this pick. Also that lipstick color in the 2nd pic is HORRIBLE

How is that a bob? Bob’s are chin length or shorter!
Victoria Beckham’s cut a few years ago that was all the rage was a bob. This is shoulder length with shorter hair in the back.

Now it looks messy and dirty

Tess on

Yeech!!!! Never got what everyone sees in her. I find her just average looking.

Bethanne on

That’s not a bob. It’s medium length hair. Whoopdeedoo

Liz on

To be honest, it looks like she cut it herself. Not feeling it.

Hilda on

I think she’s a beautiful woman, but her hair looks messy, like she just got out of bed and didn’t do anything with it

melissam on

I love short hair on her.

stacey on

Looks like a great change to me. VERY surprised she got a “messy” cut like this though. She is ALWAYS, ALWAYS, SO overdressed. And what is her deal with scarves…she must own thousands.

guest on

should have kept it long… or have gotten another type of cut. this looks scraggly..
