Just two days after being photographed with long, cascading locks, Jessica Alba stepped out with a fresh and feisty new ‘do. The 32-year-old actress debuted her edgy ombre bob at the Hollywood Stands Up to Cancer event on January 28.

Taking to Instagram, Jessica’s stylist shared some snaps of the freshly cut ‘do. “Just Chopped!” wrote Jen Atkin, who also counts the Kardashians and Zooey Deschanel as clients. “@jessicaalba serving us a fresh ‘Fashion-Bob.’” Opting to go shorter in the back and angular in front, Jen added tons of texture for a modern, undone feel.

“Jessica's style is always evolving, and she isn't afraid of a little change,” the stylist revealed to Us Weekly. “She was ready for something new and fresh. [...] That girl is fearless. [We call it the ‘fashion bob’] because so many girls in Paris have this look.”

“Fashion” or not, the bob is clearly the It-cut for Hollywood A-listers. Everyone from Paula Patton to Emma Roberts has been taking the drastic plunge, and now we’re starting to think we should do it too!

Thankfully, Jen has a few tips for those of us tempted to chop it all off. “I find that a lot of stylists can get a little carried away with layers when it comes to cutting a bob,” she says. “So it’s crucial to tell your stylist to keep the layers long, which is what allows for the versatility of this particular cut.”

Thanks for the advice, Miss Jen! We’re headed to the salon right now... with a picture of Jessica Alba in hand!
