We have much to be thankful for this week, including the fact that Liv Tyler has chopped off her enviable locks … and they remain glorious (and yes, enviable).

The actress teased a big change on Instagram, writing “Out with the old!!! Change is good!!!! Thank you hair for growing so well. @jamesbrownhair,” she captioned the shot.

She then debuted her new cut — a medium-length style with long layers and blunt, textured ends — at the British Fashion Awards in London on Monday evening. Sure, it’s much shorter than she normally goes, but it’s not so drastic that we need to breathe into a paper bag. (Like we need any more stress around the holidays!)

The cut in question is courtesy of celebrity hairstylist James Brown, who has worked with a number of stars, including Dakota Johnson, Kate Bosworth and Cara Delevingne, to name a few. His take on her hair? “It’s nice to have a change,” he wrote.
