While pregnant with her son Hayes, Jessica Alba let her hair grow out — and now she’s ready to chop it all off. On Wednesday, the actress debuted a new shoulder-length style, and she took to Instagram to post a side-by-side comparison photo, showing fans how much better she feels without the extra inches. In the “before” picture, she’s matched her frazzled split-ends with an exaggerated grimace, and in the “after,” she’s topped off her sleek snip with a satisfied smile.
“This happened 💇🏽♀️ thx @chadwoodhair for the awesome #haircut,” she wrote in the caption. “It feels sooo good to shed the pregnancy hair. Whaddaya think?”
The new mother-of-three also included two time-lapse videos of her “shedding,” providing a quick glimpse into what seems to be quite the complicated process. (There’s a lot of pinning, snipping, re-pinning, blow-drying, and straightening.) Chad Wood, the hairstylist responsible for Alba’s new look, uploaded one of the videos onto his own Instagram, captioning it “Wait! I like that piece !! 💇🏽♀️👋🏽😜,” along with a closer look at the actress’ new haircut. “Fresh new look for Mama!! 💇🏽♀️,” he wrote.
Alba, as we know, kicked off 2018 with the birth of a new baby boy. “Best gift to ring in the New Year!! Cash and I feel so blessed,” she wrote on Instagram in January. “Haven and Honor are already obsessed with their new baby bro. 👶🏽💙 #familyof5.”
