Hilary Duff has been inspiring our hair goals since 2001 when she starred in Disney's Lizzie McGuire. Those highlights. Those mini buns and butterfly clips. That fringe. Those crimped curls. We were absolutely obsessed and have been to this day.
But today, everything has changed. Not to get too dramatic about it, but Hilary has chopped off her Lizzie McGuire-length hair and nothing will ever be the same again.
Yep, the Duffster (our cool nickname for her, because we're basically best friends) has gone for the chop, welcoming in the new year with a bob—choppy, chin-grazing, and side swept.
It looks pretty good actually and despite its very un-Lizzie vibes, we'd like to print this picture and take it to our hairdresser!

And we are obsessed pre-teens once more. Bring out the tiny butterfly clips and some scissors. We're going for the chop.
