Hilary Duff Chops Off Her Hair Just In Time For Summer

Summer is the perfect time for two things: having a fling and getting a haircut.

Hilary Duff went with the latter when she chopped off her blond locks on Thursday and posted the evidence on Instagram.

For the sexy cut, the 26-year-old mom turned to hairstylist to the stars Marcus Francis, who turned her lengthy tresses into a shoulder-length 'do.

The actress posted an Instagram photo of Marcus mid-cut as he took a pair of scissors to her hair while she laughed. She captioned the pic, "Morning chop.... W/ my favorite @marcusrfrancis."

The results were so worth it! The former "Gossip Girl" posted an "after" shot that showed her sexy, choppy bob; the perfect cut for the hot summer months!

The singer then flaunted her fabulous 'do (and her cute outfit) when she was later spotted running errands with her boy, Luca.

We think she looks fab!
