Alanis Morissette chops off her trademark long locks!

Alanis Morissette is as well known for her trademark long, dark hair as she is for her music – but that didn’t stop her from chopping it all off and dying it blonde!

The singer posted a photo to her Instagram account which showed her hew new shoulder length blonde hair, a very different look from what we’re used to.

Her caption on the photo said that her new look was part of her “work addiction recovery”:

“New hair. girl needed to have a little fun 😉 ps– blondes are, in fact, treated differently. this is one of the many effects of work addiction recovery 🙂 #spontaneity #easybreezy #makeupforlosttime #healing (sic)”

We’re not sure what she meant exactly by this work addiction, though in a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, she talked about how she had suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, due to fame. When Oprah asked what she meant, Alanis replied:  “Traumatised because I think that on some level, becoming famous and wanting fame, there's some trauma.”

Despite the singer’s explanation, we’re still kind of confused… but we do love the hair! Her head must feel so light after chopping off all those inches. We hope she has lots of fun as a blonde, too!
