Ella Travolta Gets Bangs for the First Time in Over 10 Years: 'Here We Go Again I Guess'

The daughter of John Travolta and the late actress Kelly Preston revisited a childhood hairstyle

Ella Travolta recently celebrated a milestone birthday, and she's debuting a new look to go with it.

This weekend, the Gotti actress, 21, showed off her gorgeous hair transformation, which included getting bangs for the first time in 10 years.

"I haven't had bangs since I was about 9... so here we go again I guess! At least for a little while," Travolta wrote in the caption and included an adorable throwback photo of the last time she sported the 'do.

Ella celebrated her 21st birthday last weekend with the help of her dad John Travolta. "Happy 21st birthday to the most beautiful, kind, human being and artist I know," the Grease actor, 67, wrote on Instagram. "Your dad adores you!"

The proud dad previously raved about his daughter to PEOPLE in January 2019. "And she's a beauty, isn't she? She's so amazing, and so unlike what you think a teenager, the cliché of a teenager," he said at the time.

"She's different, and she's gracious, and she's lovely, she's well-mannered, and she's thoughtful, and it's authentic," he continued. "It's very old school. She reminds me of an older movie star. Another era. So I'm very proud of her."

Last July, their family mourned the death of Kelly Preston who died at 57, two years after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Travolta and Preston wed in 1991, and they shared sons Benjamin, 10, and Jett, who died at age 16 in 2009.

Ella paid tribute to her late mother in a touching statement. "I have never met anyone as courageous, strong, beautiful and loving as you," she wrote.

"Anyone who is lucky enough to have known you or to have ever been in your presence will agree that you have a glow and a light that never ceases to shine and that makes anyone around you feel instantly happy," she added. "Thank you for being there for me no matter what. Thank you for your love. Thank you for your help and thank you for making this world a better place. You have made life so beautiful and I know you will continue to do so always. I love you so much mama."
