For as long as we can remember, Jennifer Lopez has given us total hair envy with her long, flowing locks. So, we were shocked (just like almost everyone else) when she popped up at LAX in May with her hair in a short bronde bob. Still, she strutted through the airport as if all her hair was still there.

The "Booty" crooner even cut it shorter last week, showing off the chin-length haircut on Instagram. "Short hair don't care...," she captioned the snap. Although she didn't address it a couple of months ago, there was a big reason she chopped her locks.

According to the hairstylist who created the look, J.Lo switched up her hair for her upcoming cop drama Shades of Blue, which she's already been spotted filming.

"J.Lo is very passionate about her new role and has a very specific idea of who the character is and what she should look like," hair stylist Juan Carlos Maciques who created the look for her, told the Hollywood Reporter. The triple threat star plays a single mom working undercover for the FBI on an anti-corruption task force on the show.

"It's a character she's created to suit a specific need, and the cut reflects that," Juan continued. "Now it's a matter of adapting it to her every day and making it glamorous."

We can't lie. Just like Blake Lively's blonde hair we are missing J.Lo's signature look. But, girl has been slaying her new cut. We can't wait to see what else she does with it.
