Jennifer Lawrence's haircut turned heads this weekend as she stepped out with a new hairstyle.
The Hunger Games actress, who usually sports long hair, cut off her long blonde locks to show off a shorter shoulder length cut that delighted many of her fans.
Lawrence was seen out with the new haircut wearing a David Koma dress and Nicholas Kirkwood shoes at the GLAAD media awards event.
The new haircut was reportedly styled by Mark Townsend, who said: "Yesterday, Jennifer showed up an hour before call time and as she opened the door she was like 'Mark I want to cut it all off.' I was like 'What? Are we allowed to do that?' And she said 'Of course, it's my hair!'"
The new haircut was posted on Townsend's Instagram account with a posting that stated: "New haircut for the fearless Jennifer Lawrence!!"
Lawrence, who has become a Hollywood favorite and recently won an Academy Award, recently revealed that she was tormented by bullies growing up as a teenager and, as a result of the constant abuse, had to change schools numerous times.

"I changed schools a lot when I was in elementary school because some girls were mean. They were less mean in middle school, because I was doing all right, although this one girl gave me invitations to hand out to her birthday party that I wasn't invited to," Lawrence told The Sun during a recent interview.
"But that was fine, I just hocked a loogie on them and threw them in the trash can," she added.
In the same interview, Lawrence discussed her sudden rise to fame: "It's hard for a young woman because typically the roles you're offered are beautiful and [mean], ugly and nice or pretty and stupid. I've been lucky to stay away from that. I never play characters that are like me because I'm a boring person. I wouldn't want to see me in a movie," Lawrence said.
"As for being a sex symbol, I don't think of myself as sexy and, obviously, it's not true," she said. "I'm going to try to push that out of my mind because it makes me queasy."
She does like to think of herself as a regular person who enjoys mundane and trivial things like eating pizza for breakfast and a person who has a soft spot for starch.
"The other day I had pizza for breakfast, buffalo wings for lunch and pizza for dinner … probably my favorite food is a potato -- just a potato, because I like fries, boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes," she said.
In November, Jennifer will return to the big screen as no-nonsense Katniss in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."
