Did Teen Mom 3’s Katie Yeager’s new man inspire her new look? There’s a good chance! The reality star was just revealed last week that she’s got a new man by her side, and now she’s showing off a dramatic new hairdo, complete with some eye-grazing bangs. Lookin’ good, Katie!

Sometimes that little boost of confidence is all you need to take the plunge with a new style — especially some bold fringe! — and the mysterious Matthew may be what it took for the young mom. Katierevealed her cut on Instagram to almost unanimously positive reviews from fans,  from “gorgeous” to “that style is so you!”

Though we still know little about Katie’s boo, we do know he’s supportive and sends her sweet texts. What’s not to like!

A lot has changed for Katie this year: She split with baby daddy Joey Maes, her daughter Molli turned two, she lost her job on Teen Mom 3 when it was cancelled, and she picked up a new (solid!) gig as a bank teller. Phew! Most people don’t go through that much in five years, forget 12 months.

We really like that this young mother has taken control of her happiness and is looking and feeling great. Her fresh ‘do signifies a new Katie for 2014, one that might even (yay!) get engaged in the new year.

What do you think of Katie’s new look? Let us know in the comments.
