Actress shows off dramatic new look

From Kim Kardashian's platinum blonde 'do to Hilary Duff's mermaid green tresses, it seems that everyone is changing it up for a more dramatic look of late.

Following in the footsteps of Jessica Alba and host of other stars, actress Kerry Washington has gone for the chop – and looks as amazing as ever.

The Scandal star decided to go for a dramatic new look for spring, opting for a blunt bob and fringe , with some sumptuous cinnamon highlights thrown in there.

The 38-year-old showcased her new look on the cover of Ebony magazine, looking totally on-trend in her monochrome chequered dress.

It seems as though Kerry may have inspired another famous lady to ditch her trademark locks too, with model and reality star Tyra Banks taking to her Instagram account last night to show off her short new 'do.

"Mom, I finally did it!" wrote the Amrerica's Next Top Model star, underneath a black-and-white shot of her gorgeous new pixie crop.

We're feeling pretty inspired ourselves after those stunning photos. Pass the scissors, please!
