Mindy Kaling Got a Bob, and It's Perfect

Actress, writer/director, and all-around It girl Mindy Kaling has kept steadily medium to long hair for the last few years, so it's no small change to see her with a bob-length cut—and we are absolutely loving it. Kaling debuted her new style in New York City today, but you know what they say: If you cut your hair and you don't Instagram it, did it really happen? Kaling uploaded two great hair selfies to Instagram, and leave it to the comic to make them hilarious. In the first, she wrote, "Short hair don't care. Just a girl in her housedress drinking mini bar vodka, getting ready to go to her book publisher's party. Thanks @cnaselli for the dreamy cut. #thatbridgetjoneslife." She quickly followed that one up: "Short hair...DO CARE." And we do too! The cut looks sophisticated without being serious, and simultaneously youthful. All hail the transformative power of scissors. Do you love this look as much as we do? Sound off in the comments below!
