After a summer sporting extra-long extensions, Kaley Cuoco is heading back to The Big Bang Theory set with a blonder, shorter, Penny-ready style.

The actress, 30, debuted a long textured lob earlier this week on Instagram, re-introducing fans to her TV character: “Sending mad ? and props to @faye.woods for bringing my cut and colour back to its ‘Penny’ roots #nofilter.”

Celebrity hairstylist Faye Woods was the mastermind behind the chic chop, taking off several inches from Cuoco’s length to create the current wavy cut. The hair pro also touched up the star’s color, lifting her roots and giving Cuoco a lighter, brighter shade of blonde.

The star’s hair transformation comes just weeks after the show announced the casting of Katy Sagal who will play Penny’s mom on the tenth season, marking the first time viewers are introduced to the character’s family.
