Alessandra Ambrosio has cut her hair into a long bob

The 34-year-old first teased her fans by sharing a photo of herself in a salon chair, rocking sleek wet hair while celebrity hairstylist Frankie Foye cut her usually long tousled brunette locks into a layered, shoulder-length hairstyle.

"Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes Turn and face the strange," the Brazilian beauty quipped in the caption, referencing David Bowie's hit song Changes. "@frankiefoye #europeantour #girlz #newdo."

Alessandra showed off her new look on Instagram

After sharing the candid snap, Alessandra was immediately flooded with comments from fans eager to see her new 'do in its full glory – and she didn’t leave them disappointed.

The mother-of-two took to her social media page later that day, this time flaunting her new look in a striking selfie. Looking every inch a supermodel, Alessandra smouldered in the close-up snap with her glossy tresses styled in a sleek blow-dry, with her short, layered locks tumbling down in waves.

There's no doubt that short hair has been an A-lister favourite in recent months, with stars from Jennifer Lawrence to Khloé Kardashian having their hair cut into sleek bobs.

Gigi Hadid recently caused a stir on the AMAs red carpet when she stepped out rocking a slicked back bob – only for the style to be revealed as temporary. Stylist Bryce Scarlett, the man behind the 'do, confessed that he used "a partial wig" combined with the blonde beauty's natural locks to achieve the showstopping look.
