She’ll take a pixie cut for $400. Jeopardy! host Mayim Bialik recently shocked fans when she revealed that she had taken the plunge and permanently chopped off her ever-changing locks, giving herself a cut that Ken Jennings is sure to envy. Sharing her latest fashion in an Instagram post, which you can see below, followers are flocking to comment on their love for the actress’ latest doo.

In the image, Mayim Bialik shared her chop via a picture in her bathroom, captioning the shot with, “Sometimes the best lighting just happens to be in the bathroom. New hair!” Now rocking a permanently short pixie cut, the hairstyle is layered, falling along her cheeks in the front and appearing to go a little bit longer in the back. Freshly styled, Bialik’s fresh cut looks like the perfect mix between messy and collected.

Sharing the love, Mayim Bialik’s The Big Bang Theory co-star Kunal Nayyar commented, “Beauty!” amidst a sea of other positive affirmations for the new look. Known for not only holding the answers to some of the hottest trivia questions on Jeopardy! Bialik has also proven herself more than knowledgeable when it comes to how to change up hairstyles in a jiffy. During her tenure behind the podium on the long-running game show, she’s served a variety of hair lengths, transitioning seamlessly and taking her social media followers along every step of the way.

Having been in showbiz since she was a teen when she starred opposite Joey Lawrence on the hit series Blossom, there’s no doubt that Mayim Bialik has picked up a trick or two along the way when it comes to hair changes and cosmetics. Taking a plunge into the deep waters of semi-permanent change, the actress, who can currently be spotted on Fox’s Call Me Kat, is clearly ready to make a statement with her pixie chop. And, while hair can always grow out, the magic of Hollywood can make it grow even faster should she need it for a new role.

Outside of her time on scripted projects, Mayim Bialik found herself with the huge honor of being one of the names chosen to pick up the torch from the late Alex Trebek and pose the questions on the beloved show Jeopardy! During her time behind the host’s podium, she has faced her own set of backlash with the hardcore following’s almost daily critiques of missteps. From incorrect answers to category complaints, the revered competition show has had its fair share of snafus in recent months. 

With the fans clamoring for her co-host Ken Jennings, with whom Mayim Bialik shares a sort of joint custody of Jeopardy!, to return during a months-long hiatus, many thought the hate for the series would die down after the champion-turned-host chose to come back early. That, however, hasn’t been the case, as even with Jennings “in charge,” the legitimacy of answers has been called out with the show continuously finding itself in hot water. Perhaps enjoying her time away from her hosting duties or just in-between scripted filmings, Mayim Bialik is letting her hair down and enjoying the freedom that comes with letting it all go and chopping everything off.
