Ali Larter thrilled with short hair

Ali Larter was "excited" to cut off her trademark long locks.

The 35-year-old actress recently overhauled her hairstyle, debuting a chic blonde bob earlier this month. Ali's hair stylist Andy LeCompte has revealed the motivation behind her brand new look.

"Ali was looking for a totally re-vamped look," he told People.

"Cutting your hair is a big step for a lot of people, and Ali has had long hair for years. She was excited and ready for the change.

"She really had a strong idea that she was ready for a fresh new look and was not uncertain at all. Ali is loving her new cut! She loves the freedom and ease of it."

Ali's new hairstyle is very manageable. Andy explains the blonde beauty can transform her look in a matter of minutes.

"She can take her look from every day to red-carpet ready by adding something as easy as a deep side part, or adding texture with a product like Wella Professionals ocean spritz beach texture spray," he explained.

Ali gave birth to son Theodore Hayes MacArthur at the end of last year. Andy says her low-maintenance style is perfect for her hectic schedule.

"Shorter hair is great for fuss-free styling, which complements the busy lives of moms everywhere - not just in Hollywood," he shares. "I also think new moms experience this newfound confidence and find it liberating to not hide behind their hair."

Andy predicts that Ali's shorter locks will start a trend. He thinks fashionistas will start to experiment with hair length in an attempt to update their look.

"For so long the ideal hair for a woman was long, flowy and down to your hips," he shares. "Women are experimenting more and are realising that you don't have to sacrifice your femininity if you cut your hair."
