Taylor Swift Cuts Her Hair

There aren’t many people for whom a haircut merits a rousing round of applause from a roomful of admiring onlookers. But Taylor Swift is not your average person — and a haircut, for her, is not just an everyday occurrence.

You can see the weight she (and the cheering crowd) assigns to this momentous occasion in the video she posted to Instagram (below), which she captioned, simply, “Haircut.” In the video, she says, “We don’t do anything without an audience, do we?” (P.S. In the comments, Taylor fans claim ex-boyfriend Harry Styles, with whom she has had a contentious relationship, can be spotted in the room. Thoughts?)

After posting the teaser video, Swift followed up with a Polaroid-style photo of herself with singer Ellie Goulding and the caption “London, I could never thank you enough. See you next time! PS: short hair, don’t care. (!!!)”

We imagine the exclamation points are to convey the enthusiasm of someone whose last big hair change was getting bangs several years ago — and loves to toss those famously long locks onstage. She’ll just have to bring the drama another way — a duet with Mr. Styles, perhaps?

Plus, check out the mid-haircut pics posted by pal Cara Delevingne — and a post-chop shot with Goulding!

What do you think of Swift with short hair? Should she go even shorter? Weigh in below!

Summer on

Swifty’s hair, I don’t care!!!

Lori on

She looks cute! Here comes the hate from bored, jealous hags.

Always looks like the same boring as style. Short or long. Yawn.

Robin on

I predict that Taylor Swift will eventually add some hair extensions so that she can continue to toss her hair on stage with wild abandon. Getting hair extensions seems to be the Hollywood way. *sigh* …. About Harry Styles being in the video- I thought I saw someone who had his hairstyle, but the camera panned so fast it was almost impossible to see his face. If it was Harry Styles, I wonder what Kendall Jenner would think?

Kimberly on

I think she has really pretty hair. Short or long, it looks great.

Seabot on

It’s a cute hair cut, but it’s not short, and her doing it in front of an audience is ridiculous.

Sammi on

This is hardly article worthy, her hair probably is the same without extensions and she just got a trim. People, you are SO dramatic
