Florence Pugh's new haircut is a drastic change that we didn't see coming

But everyone is all for it: Florence Pugh, you've wowed the internet!

A new season calls for a new look—just ask Florence Pugh. The Midsommar and Little Women actress decided to ditch her signature style and opt for a moodier aesthetic, which makes sense given all the cozy fall essentials that are currently making the rounds. 

Though Pugh's blonde locks are unmistakable, she's opted for a brunette shade as of late, which she's donned on Instagram. It's totally understandable to go a bit darker this time of year—many of us are looking to add warmth to our 'do as the cooler months swoop in. 

But in addition to a new color, she's also decided to play with the style. Gone are her beach waves. Say hello to Pugh's short strands. 

"I did a thing," she captioned on Instagram alongside a photo of her look. She sure did!

Not quite a pixie and not yet a bob, this look seems to be a hybrid of short styles. Accentuated by wet locks, the trend is fierce and plenty of celebs weighed in with their own thoughts—a resounding stamp of approval. 

"I am crying stunning" Ariana Grande wrote in the comments. Bella Thorne gave a thumbs up with "Yeaaas." Hailey Steinfeld kept it simple with, "absolutely."

It would appear that the drastic shade and cut are a hit, though it's not necessarily clear if this is a permanent look. Many suspect that Pugh had to chop off strands for her role in boyfriend Zach Braff's new movie, A Good Person. Either way, it seems as though she should consider keeping it short. 

If you're curious how to autumnize your 'do (yes, we've made that a verb) consider looking into the pumpkin spice hair color trend or copy Hailey Bieber's brunette hair, a sophisticated take on the "bronde" movement. And, of course, don't forget to pair your fall look with a new outfit—not required, but highly encouraged.
