Brooklyn Decker Chops Off Her Rapunzel Hair
Just one week after blonde bombshell Brooklyn Decker showed off her ridiculously long tresses on the red carpet, she decided to debut a much shorter ‘do.

“Yes I chopped my hair off … thank you @ronacolor @joseph_michael54 #lukeoconnor,” wrote the 27-year-old model on Instagram, where she first posted a photo revealing the new haircut.
And if you must know, the image on her shirt also happens to be Decker, picking her nose. The garment is currently being sold for $21.99 to benefit the English in Mind Haiti foundation, which was the actual focus of the Instagram post.
But really, what caused the major snip?
“We were deciding between coloring it red or chopping it off,” Decker tells PEOPLE Magazine. “[My job] made my decision for me, as blonde would just be easier and we could always add extensions.”

A pro like Decker weary about losing her princess-like locks for a neck-sweeping bob, either.
“I wasn’t nervous,” she tells the publication. “I had it in a ponytail, and while I was waiting to get my hair washed for the color, Rona O’ Connor [her colorist, whose husband Luke O’ Connor of Lukaro salon in Beverly Hills did the cut] just walked up behind me and chopped it off!”
Decker’s team tells Allure magazine that her latest style involved cutting off ten inches of hair, lightening the rest to a golden blonde (along with “threads of ivory and strawberry for dimension”) and then fading the ends with a pale champagne hue for a sun-kissed look.
“She has so much hair, and that’s not a problem when it’s long — the more the better. But for her new bob, my challenge was to thin it out so it didn’t expand to what I call 'the sphinx look': flat on top and wide at the bottom,” says Luke to the beauty publication.
The result is a seemingly effortless haircut that Decker calls “a truer version of myself.”

“I’m too lazy for anything high maintenance,” adds Decker to PEOPLE. “I just let it dry, add a bunch of gunk to it and let it go crazy.”
