"Finally mustered up the courage." Ricki-Lee waves goodbye to long hair.

When you hear the name Ricki-Lee Coulter, what’s the first thing that comes to mind?

For us it’s talented singer. No BS-taker. The owner of impossibly shiny hair, and now, the picture we’ll be taking to our hairdressers next week.

Yes, Ricki-Lee has officially joined the “Short Hair Don’t Care” club with a shoulder-grazing cut.


But unlike celebrities who seem to chop and change their hair length on a daily basis (We’re looking at you, Khloe Kardashian) this was one carefully considered decision.

“I’ve been wanting to do it for ages and FINALLY mustered up the courage… I love it!” she wrote.

Considering she looks to have chopped off over 20 centrimetres, taking her hair from below her chest to just above her shoulders, it’s a big change. (Watch: Mia Freedman gets a short chop of her own. Post continues after video.)

In a pleasantly surprising turn of events, the decision on Instagram is unanimous: this is one excellent cut.

“Love it”, “Looks great” and “So stunning” were frequent statements made by followers, as well as the thumbs up from Ricki Lee’s fellow celebs. (Post continues after gallery.)

“Love!” wrote fashion designer Toni Maticevski while Radio host and fellow lob-er Jackie O added “Gorgeous!!! ?? Bet you’ll go shorter next time too.”

What new haircut are you contemplating?
