Jennifer Lawrence has debuted a short new haircut. Now it has emerged that she cut her hair on a whim.
Miss Lawrence turned up at stylist Mark Townsend's salon just one hour before she was due to appear on the red carpet at the star-studded Los Angeles event.
Mr Townsend told Harper's Bazaar that he was shocked by her spontaneous request to cut her long locks into a tousled bob.
He told the magazine website: 'Jennifer showed up an hour before call time and as she opened the door she was like, "Mark I want to cut it all off."
'I was like, "What? Are we allowed to do that?" And she said, "Of course, it's my hair!"'
Mr Townsend says that the Hunger Games actress wanted a bob, but not the asymmetrical style, with longer layers at the front, that so many other celebrities have been sporting.
'She wanted tons of layers - so we went with a full-on shag, with bangs and a lot of face-framing layers. I loosened up the ends by chopping into them with thinning shears,' he said.
The resulting shaggy style, he says, will be easy to maintain in the summer weather as it won't require much styling so she can 'just rock her natural texture.'
The stylist admits he lost track of how many times she said, 'I love it!'
'She was super excited,' he added. 'It's the shortest her hair has been her whole life.'
