It seems all of our favorite celebrities are ditching their long hair for the summer.

Once again, Taraji P. Henson rocks a hairstyle we're completely in love with. Fresh off a whirlwind awards season and another season of Empire, the talented actress was recently spotted out and about in a golden brown high fade with tapered sides.

Taraji initially debuted the short cut over Memorial Day weekend, and it looks like the style is sticking. Her badass cut may be inspired by her character in the upcoming film Proud Mary, set for a 2018 release.

We're used to seeing loose tresses with varying lengths and colors for the star, but this short cut is her most daring to date. 

What makes it even more stunning is how effortlessly cool she makes it, pairing the fresh cut with bold pink shades and a colorful oversized bag.

As things heat up this summer, we're sure more stars like Taraji will be opting to ditch their heavy hair in favor of tapered cuts and fades. See the biggest A-list transformations of 2017 (so far) here.
