Dakota Johnson gets the chop

Dakota Johnson has switched up her look by swapping her long hair for a choppy bob.

The 25-year-old actress is famous for her long brunette hair. But as she headed out in New York City on Wednesday, Dakota showed off a fresh look.

The Fifty Shades of Grey star swapped her lengthy locks for a chic, choppy bob.

Dakota was seen showing off her new ‘do as she arrived at a spa in the Big Apple for a refreshing appointment.

The pretty young star is no stranger to experimenting with new styles to mix up her look.

Prior to being cast as Anastasia Steele in box office hit Fifty Shades, Dakota sported blonde hair.

But after landing the part, she went brunette and added bangs to coincide with Anastasia’s description in E.L. James’ books.

Following the transformation, the actress’ regular hair stylist Mark Townsend spoke about the stages he follows to achieve Dakota’s flawless appearance.

“Dakota does have a cowlick, so I always start with the bangs while they’re wet and blowdry them into the direction I want them to go,” Mark told W magazine. “I don’t use hair product on bangs since women touch them all day and that adds natural oils, but I always finish with dry shampoo, sort of like an alternative to hairspray. It keeps the volume and freshness, and the bangs can still move. I’m obsessed with R + Co’s Death Valley Dry Shampoo. It gives hair a sort of beachy, slightly chunky texture.”

However, Mark added that when it comes to maintaining her look, Dakota gets slightly impatient. So when her bangs got a bit too long, she attacked them herself with a pair of scissors.

“I don’t advise cutting one’s own bangs, but they looked great,” Mark laughed. “A little choppier than I usually do them, but it’s what she wanted.”
