During a weekend getaway to Las Vegas with her brothers and grandmother, Paris Jackson decided it was time for a change: Michael Jackson’s daughter got her first haircut, trading in her long tresses for a shorter look.

“The stylist gathered up all of the hair that was cut and placed it in a plastic bag for Jackson to take,” a source tells PEOPLE.

The youngster – accompanied by one of her aunts – apparently told other guests at Michael Boychuck’s AMP Salon in the Palms Casino Resort that this was her first ever haircut, the source added.

While in the salon, the 11-year-old also had her fingernails painted a bright lime green to match the color of the Palms hotel limousines.

The salon pampering came during a weekend in Vegas with the Jackson kids’ grandmother, Katherine, who kept a close eye on Paris and her two brothers, Prince Michael I, 12, and Prince Michael II (a.k.a. “Blanket”), 7, as they enjoyed swimming in the Palms’ pool and dining at hotspot N9NE Steakhouse.
