Sarah Jessica Parker - long sunkissed blonde hair with loose waves

Sarah Jessica Parker reveals new Carrie-inspired haircut on Instagram

New role, new hair!  

Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker has been our hair crush since, well, forever. From her natural curls to poker straight tresses (and pretty much every hairstyle in between), Sarah Jessica Parker certainly knows a thing or 2 when it comes to stylish hair.

However, we’ve become so used to seeing her with long wavy tresses that we almost didn’t recognise the actress when she posted a new picture on her personal Instagram. Ditching her dirty blonde hair in preparation for a new role, SJP has not only changed her hair hue but has also gone for the chop! If you’re yet to see SJP’s new ‘do, simply keep scrolling for the big reveal…

I'm her, Vivienne Day 1 "Unfollow The Rules" X, SJ

Waving goodbye to her signature long mane, SJP revealed a new wavy lob (AKA long bob) haircut on her Instagram account and we can’t help but swoon over just how stunning it looks! SJP captioned the image “I’m her, Vivienne Day 1 “Unfollow The Rules” X, SJ”, which inevitably sent her 3.5 million followers into a frenzy with anticipation of a new movie on the horizon. Credit: @sarahjessicaparker

Not content with wowing us with a new haircut, SJP has also coloured her hair to a lighter blonde shade which looked gorgeous against the backdrop of the city skyline. Keeping her new ‘do suitably on-trend, SJP added gorgeous soft waves and an off-centre side parting which perfectly frames her oval face shape.

Editor’s tip: Achieve Sarah Jessica Parker’s wavy finish by using TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Creating Sea Foam. This nifty product will help you to create light waves, plus the ultra lightweight formula smells gorgeous and dries non-sticky. Jackpot!

Now, this isn’t the first time SJP has had a lob haircut and any avid Sex and the City fans will remember that in season 5 Carrie Bradshaw (SJP’s character) went for a lob haircut during a post-breakup makeover. It’s not clear yet whether she’s truly gone for the chop or if it’s just a wig but you can guarantee we’ll be refreshing her Instagram constantly to find out for sure!
