Jennifer Hudson showed us once again that the "short hair, don't care" mantra is one we can all get behind.

The singer and "The Color Purple" star showed off her new 'do on Instagram this past weekend with the caption, "Who needs hair, when u serving face!" Few truer words have been spoken, Ms. Hudson.

According to, Hudson made the big chop from pixie to close-cut herself (yes, without a hairstylist!) after moving to New York. She told the website that she wanted to create an individual look that reflected her "always changing" personal style.

Hudson cites fashion icon and cultural legend Grace Jones, who is well known for her short hair and avant-garde style, as the inspiration behind the look.
