Rumer not only went back to blonde (she had a similar hue last summer), but the star also cut several inches off her chest-length strands, sporting an asymmetrical long bob. Naturally, she gave a peek at her new look on Instagram, posting two dramatic photos from a shoot she did with Tyler Shields. “Love my new hair do courtesy of @domdomhair captured by the main man @thetylershields,” she captioned the below photo, recognizing the guy behind her cut, Dominick Serna, a stylist The Chris McMillan salon in L.A.
Photographer Shields also shared a series of images on his blog of Willis’s angular chop. The star poses topless in the photos, and reveals that she also has a large section of her head shaved on the back of her neck.

So what inspired the new do? “I’ve been dyeing my hair a lot and it’s been kind of getting trashed at the ends … I just got to a point where I just wanted to cut it all off, kind of start fresh. I think with women, we put so much of our emotional stuff in our hair, and I think sometimes you just want to kind of chop it off and start over,” she tells PEOPLE at Just Jared’s Summer Fiesta.
And as for the blonde: “I started going to see Amber at 901 Salon who did it for me, and I just really like the color. I was going to put blue back on the ends, but it’s just such a great blonde that I just didn’t want to change it!” she says. So, is she having more fun? “You’ll have to come back to me in a couple of months and I’ll tell you,” she says. “I think any color hair, you have more fun as long as you have the right attitude about it.”
