She shocked fans last week when she debuted a dramatic new hairstyle, and now Kendall Jenner has revealed what inspired her to get the chop. The supermodel showed off a daring new bob on Snapchat, saying goodbye to her famous long locks, and it's all thanks to one of her fashion peers.

Writing on her website, Kendall, 20, confessed she's always been inspired by Christie Turlington's 90s style. She explained: "Honestly, I've been wanting to change my hair for a while now!

Christy Turlington inspired Kendall Jenner to get the chop

"Christy Turlington's bob was a total inspiration for me, even though mine's a little longer."

Like most people, Kendall was a little apprehensive when she first saw her new look, but it didn't take long for her to fall in love with it – and it's easy to see why!

Kendall continued: "After the stylist chopped it off and I felt it, for a second I was like, 'Ahh, wait! Take it back!' But, I actually really love it now. It's only been a couple of times that I've looked in the mirror and thought that I want my long hair back. I've had the same length forever, so it's a nice change and perfect for the summer."

Kendall admitted she's wanted to take the plunge for a while

Although it's easy to see why 47-year-old Christie's bob swayed Kendall into taking the plunge, there's no doubt she was also inspired by her famous sisters.

Younger sibling Kylie, 18, and half-sisters Kim, 35, and 31-year-old Khloe Kardashian have all experimented with bobs during recent years, and they've all totally rocked the look.

Khloe in particular has opted for a complete image overhaul, trading in her long brunette tresses for short, shocking blonde.
