We admit it, we were too busy staring at Chrissy Teigen’s flawless poolside style in the Instagrams she snapped late last week to notice that, in those same pics, she was also rocking a fresh haircut.

The chop session went down on Wednesday, when Chrissy’s hairstylist Anh Co Tran, gave the model and soon-to-be cookbook author a layered lob — a subtle, yet striking departure from her recent long bronde locks. The new cut, a masterful mix of the precision and texture Tran is known for (his other clients include short hair muses Coco Rocha and Ginnifer Goodwin), is more tousled than the sleek bobs and lobs we saw this spring, ushering in a new lived-in phase for the shoulder length chop.

Since snaps like these are the stuff fall hair inspiration is made of, we got the inside scoop about the cut from Tan, along with tips for how *you* can get Chrissy’s piecey lob right now.
