"I'm never going to label myself."

Shay Mitchell is saying buh-bye to long hair.

The Pretty Little Liars star finally hopped onto the “lob” — that’s a long bob, for all your hairstyle newbies — trend on Monday (Aug. 8, 2016) and took some scissors to her lengthy tresses. The actress debuted a new collarbone-length ‘do on hairstylist’s Chris Appleton’s Instagram.

“Chopped shay’s hair,” wrote Appleton, who was also the mastermind behind Kim Kardashian‘s latest headline-making, short-and-blunt hairstyle.

According to Mitchell, 29, having short hair is just another challenge for her to step out of her comfort zone.

“Would I cut my hair? If it were needed for the role, it’s hair and it’s gonna grow back,” she recently told People. “Maybe that would be a new challenge for me. But it is my security blanket.”

“It’s interesting when you see people switching it up all the time… even though I don’t really switch it up a whole lot,” she added. “I’m trying to — that’s my new goal for 2016, to switch up my looks a little bit more, is I’m going to have a little more fun with it this year.”

BOOM. Mission accomplished!
