  • The pop star ditched her long blonde locks in favour of a short, sassy crop

    Rita Ora has chopped off her long, flowing waves – and she’s not missing them one bit.

    Over the past few weeks, the 23-year-old singer has been spotted everywhere from the Brit Awards to Milan Fashion Week sporting long, blonde extensions.

    But on Friday evening, she traded in her feminine look for a short, edgy crop – and she (of course!) immediately shared the results via Instagram.


    Rita also gave a shout-out to the man behind the scissors, Chris Appleton.

    ‘He is a genius @Chrisappleton1 for my fresh cut! Thank you Chris!! #ICONICMAN,’ she posted on Sunday, sharing another snap of the new ‘do – which features shorter layers in the back and longer, sweeping bits on the top and sides.


    Rita didn’t wait long to take her new haircut out for a test drive.

    She debuted her sexy look during her surprise performance at the Philipp Plein show on Sunday night, proving that the crop also looks super cute underneath a studded cowboy hat.
