It suits her.

The actress shared a photo of her new much shorter hairdo to Instagram.

Many of Sara's fans were shocked at the dramatic change but she had plenty of support from other fans telling her she looked beautiful.

However, the chop was for a very important cause.

She documented the nerve-wracking before and after stages of getting a dramatic cut on Instagram, clearing up the reason behind it.

Sara is donating her hair to an organisation called Locks of Love. It is charity that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss due to a diagnosis of an illness.

"Whelp, this just happened! Welcome #Change #LetItGo

Donating to#LocksOfLove" she captioned the photo.

We admire Sara for donating her hair to such a worthy cause, and if you interesting in doing something similar there are plenty of brilliant charities that make wigs for people suffering from hair loss through things like alopecia, chemo and many other causes of hair loss.

For example The Little Princess Trust, who provide real hair wigs, free of charge, to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.
