It’s been a big year of changes for actress and mother Katie Holmes.

The 38-year-old recently confirmed her relationship with fellow actor Jamie Foxx and helped establish him as a father figure for her 11-year-old daughter, Suri.

Now she’s changed up her look in a major way, too.

According to Just Jared, the actress chopped off her long, brunette locks and is now sporting a pixie haircut. She had it cleverly hidden under a hat on her Instagram page:

But the mom was spotted rocking the new hairstyle when she stepped out at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday.

And she no longer has the “girl next door” vibe she was formerly famous for on “Dawson’s Creek.”

Holmes looked nearly unrecognizable with her mega-short hairstyle and large sunglasses. She paired the new look with a slouchy striped sweater.

Though it’s unclear if Holmes cut her hair for a role or if she just wanted to make a big change, fans seemed to have a lot of mixed opinions about the new ‘do.

Many on social media praised the bold style change, but some Instagram users slammed the look:

If that’s Katie Holmes she must have had something mighty yucky done.

Doesn’t look like a pixie to me. It’s too long. That looks like the soccer mom ‘Can I speak to your manager’ special.

Looks like a boy lmfao.

Why are all ladies getting haircuts like boys? So stupid they have such beautiful hair.

What do you think of Holmes’s new hairstyle?
