Avril Lavigne has several inches of her hair chopped off in chaotic transformation

We recently reported that Avril Lavigne looks basically the same as when she recorded hits like Sk8er Boi and Complicated nearly twenty years ago. Now we have to retract that statement because the singer has just chopped inches off her trademark long hair.

She took to Instagram to debut the results of the chop in the most Avril way possible: with a video of it being done. We don’t mean in a hair salon, we mean her pal Yungblud – yes, the musician – going at her ends with a pair of scissors. The pair rather glamorously perch on a toilet as Yungblud grabs the ends of her hair before snipping around 7-8 inches of length.

Avril, 37, seems quite shocked by the whole ordeal – perhaps he went a little shorter than she thought he was going to? Either way, the look has stuck. We can see the full results in a new black and white snap posted to her Instagram grid.

““I’m a Mess” with @yungblud out Thursday, November 3,” she captions the graphic, signalling that the toilet haircut was all promo for the duo’s new song.

Fans, naturally, have a few things to say about the transformation process – and about Avril’s final look.

“Avril, it better be extensions!” one worried fan writes.

A second says: “The way I just gasped and yelled WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?!” while a third adds: “Iconic! Short hair Avril is here.”

Before you panic on Avril's behalf, the final bob is actually a lot more polished than you might think. We’re assuming she headed to a professional to get the shorter cut tidied up after Yungblud’s crime against her ends. The end result is a shoulder-skimming chop with sleek, layered ends.

If you haven’t seen Avril for a while, you’ll probably also notice the singer has orange highlights running through her hair. She’s actually been wearing this colour since the Grammy Awards back in April. We can’t tell from the black and white image if she still has these streaks, but we kind of hope she does? Highlighter hair for 2023, anyone?
