The Good Morning America star took to Instagram with footage taken inside her dressing room in which she's letting her hairstylist loose on her locks without a salon in sight.

Many fans loved the shorter look and commented: "I like the new length," and, "You can do no wrong," while some said: "No, Ginger, what are you doing," and said they wanted her to grow her hair. 

Ginger's job means she has to brave the elements and that means her hair does too.

And in her caption, she added: "Love it when @samwnek catches me 'doing' my hair… it's tough out here on the road without @msmerylin."
