If, for some reason and by a miraculous coincidence, today is the day that you've chosen to have a social media detox (sometimes, it's needed), then mistakes were, unfortunately, made. That is, if you care to see Nicole Kidman's mega hair transformation. And IDK why you wouldn't, seeing as she looks *completely* unrecognizable.

The image of Nicole's new hairdo comes to us via Perfect Magazine and their Instagram page, where she dons the cover of the new issue. While other publications' headlines read that Nicole Kidman looks "insanely jacked" – what we're more preoccupied with is her bright red bob-meets-hip-skimming-lengths hairstyle. Although we'd like to acknowledge, the actor does look incredible.

Now, at first glance, it may appear as if Nicole is wearing two different hairstyles in one. And those would be a chin-length bob and waist-length straight locks. However, the long hairstyle (which we're assuming is a wig, seeing as she cut her hair not too long ago) has been cut to add blunt layers around the face. Plus, can we also just take a mo' for the vibrant red color? It just screams autumn and the beauty team did amazingly.

Though, when I say 'team', I mean both hairstylist Evanie Frausto and Nicole, because the actor shared an IG post that looks as if she cut the fringe herself:

The mod-like cut may not be everyone's cup of tea but the color is so on-trend RN. You best believe I'll be rocking it, too, come September..
