Ellie Goulding

Ellie Goulding debuted her new hair at the Balmain store launch dinner


Ellie Goulding is further proof that the lob (long bob, keep up), is THE haircut of the year – and it's still only March.

The singer is the latest celebrity (Jessica Alba joined the bob hairstyle brigade yesterday) to have her long blonde locks cut off in favour over a below-the-chin 'do, which she revealed last night on Instagram to her 4.6m followers with the caption: 'HAI NEW HAIR.' Hello back.


Swept over to one side, with long, voluminous layers, we've got to say this looks a lot like Rosie Huntington Whiteley's latest hair cut. And we totally wouldn't blame Ellie if she took a picture RHW's hair into the salon – the model's latest cut has inspired pretty much the entire InStyle office to book an appointment with her stylist George Northwood. And actually, there's something of the Kim Kardashian about Ellie's 'do too. But then, who isn't sporting this style right now?

And Ellie's new hair looked even more fabulous worn with a plunging gold and black Balmain dress which she wore to the launch party of the label's new London store last night.

Joined by Poppy Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn – who both showed off some serious leg in jewel-coloured shimmering minidresses – as well as Lily Donaldson and, of course, Balmain creative director Olivier Roustening, this looked like one fun night out.

Now excuse us while we go and book a hair appointment.
