Kelsea Ballerini will head into 2017 with a new look. The blonde beauty recently cut off her signature locks and shared with fans on social media.

“Change is fun. Thanks to my girl Ali and @thedryhousenashville,” Ballerini writes alongside an Instagram photo which shows her beaming, chopped locks sitting just on her shoulders.

Fans following the "Yeah Boy" singer on Snapchat got an early reveal. Ballerini explains that she decided to cut her long locks because she wanted to “get my hair strong and healthy again.”

Ballerini joins the trend of shorter hairstyles on country singers like Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert and RaeLynn. A shorter 'do will likely make it a little easier for the singer to get ready for her headlining tour each night. Currently on the road for her first headlining tour, Ballerini's The First Time Tour runs through Dec. 10.

In an interview with Taste of Country at her Atlanta tour stop, Ballerini gushed about finally being the name in the big letters on top of the marquee.

"It’s a different kind of energy because you feel like you know the people in the room," she says. "It’s this really comfortable feeling because most of the people in the room are people just like me. It’s cool to be able to know that going into it because it makes it easier for me to sing my songs in there and know they’re going to have fun."

Even more fun for Ballerini is the fans that come to her tour bus night after night to take pictures and chat with her. Now, they'll also be admiring her new hairstyle.
