Whatever happens in the America's Next Top Model finale, we can now officially declare that Molly's hair lost Cycle 16.

First there was the weave seen 'round the world, a mound of hair so ill-suited to her head, we feared she could have suffocated had no one intervened. Now, according to these finale photos released by the CW, it seems like Molls has the opposite problem — it's all gone! But some bangs were left behind, ones that extend around her whole head.

We'd been wondering why Molly escaped the weave debacle without any other change to her hair, but we didn't anticipate such a dramatic new look. She's got such a dynamite face, so maybe Tyra felt like this would take her to new editorial heights. Brittani's hair also got the pixie treatment, and though we think we prefer the bob, it's a less jarring transition.

What do you think? Should they have left Molly's hair be? Or was the cut just the kind of edge she needed?
