As you know, Jennifer Lawrence is the most beloved celebrity currently in circulation. She is precious to pop culture, like platinum and giant sapphires that people sneakily steal in movies to several measures of staccato symphonies. And today, homegirl chopped off her hair.
She posted the photo of her new cut on Facebook along with the caption, “Headed up north for #GLOBALFANDAY with The Hunger Games Catching Fire cast. Follow this page all day for updates!” Lawrence styled her new asymmetrical hair with what I would guess was wax and a bit of mousse, then accompanied the look with a simple black blazer and white scoop-neck shirt.
Honestly, I really love this haircut on her. As somebody who has admittedly only been a half-fan of Lawrence for a long time (I know, my intro was deceiving, but I was just going off of the general glorifying demeanor with the media treats her), I am now inexplicably a little more fond of her. I think it separates her considerably from her Hunger Games look., which is always an important thing for young (and older) performers to do when playing an iconic role in a popular series.
Oh, and everyone else apparently hates it, too. According to International Business Times:
…social media is already buzzing about the shorter ‘do. “What the heck? Why would you cut your gorgeous hair?? Oh no!!!” wrote one fan, Carrie Buckles of Salem, Mass., on the social media page Wednesday, a similar sentiment of many of the Kentucky-based actress’ fans. “You had such beautiful long hair Jen! Why did you have to cut it off!” said fan, Farrah Faraci.
Also, as a side note, our video producer Meg was just planning on asking all of you if she should chop off her hair similarly to this cut, so stay tuned for that and be sure to vote because as you may have noticed, we value your opinions here (sometimes a little too much). Personally, I am a big fan of nearly all pixie cuts with the exception of my own in the 8th grade when I decided to try Mandy Moore‘s look from How To Deal and wound up with a mullet. For the record, braces and a mullet are not a good look, though I suspect some people would disagree if J Law showed up on the red carpet wearing them.
