Tyra Banks has revealed she has had her brunette locks chopped into a pixie cut
The America's Next Top Model host has since revealed that despite her tousled tresses having iconic status of their own, Tyra felt it was time to switch up her look.
"I come from the school of hardcore branding and if you are known for something keep that because that is what the public connects you with," she told PEOPLE. "I had long, golden hair as a high-fashion model, and a Victoria’s Secret model and a Sports Illustrated model, and that’s how people know me. But great brands tweak their logos and change up their formula, and I said it’s time for me to do that."
However, the star did admit that the drastic change has left her feeling 'very exposed', and that she has been experimenting with her style to match her new 'do. "Futuristic businesswoman is what I'm going for with this hair."
The supermodel showcased her sense of humour with a photo of a Barbie doll rocking the same style
The entrepreneur has been showcasing her famous sense of humour as she shared her transformation with fans on social media, from joking that Gecko-shaped hairstyles inspired her, and even gave a Barbie doll the same pixie cut. Tyra first shared a photo of herself looking chic in a tailored suit with her locks styled into a super-sleek look, before sharing a photo of the Barbie doll rocking the same outfit and hair. "The "TyTy Chop" as seen on Eve. (Thx @arry_ka)," she quipped in the caption.
