OMG! Margot Robbie just cut her long hair off in favour of a short lob

Soldiers, assemble! The bob brigade has recruited a new troop in the form of everyone's favourite IRL Barbie doll... in other words, the star at the forefront of every exciting past, present and future movie deal, Margot Robbie, has chopped off her luscious blonde locks in favour of a long bob haircut – and as ever, it's a transformation to note!

Over the weekend [Saturday 13 April, 2024], Margot attended the 10th Annual Breakthrough Prize Ceremony at Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles, California. And while the 'Oscars of Science' – as it is so often dubbed – was a cause for celebration having given out more than $15 million in prizes, it was actually Margot's dramatically shorter haircut that stole the red carpet spotlight. That is, for us, anyway.

The actor has gone from having below-chest-length locks to a full on-the-shoulder style. But before we get to the reveal, for reference (and added effect), first see Margot's hairstyle from the March 2024 Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

T'was her signature look. And now *insert drum roll here, please*, allow us to introduce you to lob (aka 'long bob') Barbie...

It's quite the change, right? So much so that if we were to hazard a guess at the amount ditched, we'd estimate that Margot has said goodbye to at least 8 inches of hair.

While a little more tamed, this shorter style gives the illusion of fuller, thicker hair thanks to the blunt finish of the cut. She's traded her feathered, face-framing layers for a straight-lined edge and TBH, we ain't mad about it. In equal parts sophisticated, glamourous and chic.

Here's to maintaining hair health and the ever-growing bob effect. Cheers, Margot!
