Halle Bailey has officially joined the bob chat.

After wearing long brains that hung down to her waist for years, Bailey is switching it up to a new chopped hairstyle. The Little Mermaid actor and musician debuted her new short bob this weekend with a series of selfies posted to her Instagram.

Bailey was glowing in her photos, showing off the new hair, along with a delicate necklace that spelled out “Halo,” the name of her son. The new mom was dressed in a white tube-top jumpsuit from Aerie.

Bailey later shared photos from Aerie REAL Fest in Atlanta, which celebrated the brand's ten-year anniversary. The actor, who is an Aerie brand ambassador, participated in a fireside chat panel in front of an intimate crowd. Other panelists included influencer Jackie Aina, gymnast Aly Raisman, and more.

Bailey posted photos in her white jumpsuit and new haircut, with the caption “A special day with @aerie celebrating 10 years of #aeriereal.” She paired the outfit with a stack of gold bracelets, necklaces, and rings, along with strappy white heels.

Halle Bailey has been taking on new mom life in the most effortless and incredible way. The actor welcomed her first child with boyfriend DDG at the end of 2023 after keeping her pregnancy private. Rumors of her expecting circulated for months after she was shown wearing loose clothing and appeared to have a baby bump in paparazzi photos. Despite some scrutiny from online trolls, Bailey defended her choice to keep the pregnancy under wraps when clapping back to some hate comments.

“I’ll never understand why you are mad i protected my own peace, wouldn’t you do the same?” Bailey tweeted last month. “I’m gonna share my pics now if i want to because my son is here safely, if u don’t wanna see it just keep scrolling baby lol God bless you.”
