Alicia Keys debuted a taste of new music in the form of the song ‘New Day‘ a few weeks ago and it marked a change in sound for the piano pop diva. She’s taking that whole “change is good” motif a step further with her look, as the beauty has chopped off her curly cues. Buh-bye, long, lush locks! Hello angled bob!

Keys tweeted a composite image of several photos showing off  her newly shorn locks, writing: ” Look what I done did!!;-))) its an ‪#aknewday‬ in EVERY way!!!!;-))) ” We love her hashtag of #aknewday. It’s rife with double meaning and makes use of her initials, too. It’s AK’s New Day in more way than one.

The singer and mom is clearly happy with her new coif, judging from all the exclamation point punctuation and smiley face emoticons in her tweet. The composite image shows Keys’ new cut styled with her natural curls; blown sleek and straight into an angled chin-length bob; and even some of her lobbed off hair on the floor.

It’s a versatile cut that works with her naturally curly texture, so she can wear it in a variety of ways and never, ever get bored. The shaggy curls version is summery, as though Keys just emerged from a day at the beach, aviator shades and all. That angled bob reminds us of Rihanna in her ‘Umbrella’ days, since that was a look she was pumping at the time. She can also show off huge, shoulder-dusting earrings with this coif.
