Alexandra Burke has become the latest star to join Nashville actress Hayden Panettiere and TOWIE's Lucy Mecklenburgh with a sexy new bob.

Alex, who is currently receiving rave reviews for her role as Rachel Marron in the musical, The Bodyguard, showed off her shorter hair on Instagram on Tuesday (17 June).

Sophisticated or what?

"Back 2 short hair!" the former X Factor winner posted, along with this glamorous snap of her sexy, new do (above).

Alex has dabbled with a long bob before, but this new version has been chopped high into her neck and left slightly longer at the front, giving her a chic new take on the cut.

And we have to say, we love the side-parted, flicked fringe which adds a young, fresh feel to the look – especially with that amazing make-up!

Alex is never afraid to switch up her locks with extensions, curls, colours and fringes and we salute her for not being one of those boring celebs who stick with the same hair for, like, ever (yes, they know who they are!)...

She may well revert back to longer hair for her on-stage performance as the part made famous by the late Whitney Houston, but we're loving this fresh new look while it lasts.

Long may it reign!
