She looks so chic in her new 'do.

Natalie Portman is no stranger to short haircuts. Remember that time (back in 2005) when she shaved her head for her role in V for Vendetta? Well, after years of longer tresses, Portman is once again rocking a bold short style for her role in the upcoming Vox Lux.

Just a couple weeks ago, Portman appeared with slightly longer-than-shoulder-length hair on Jimmy Kimmel Live, but yesterday, she was spotted on the set of Vox Lux in New York City's Financial District sporting a sleek pixie cut, InStyle reports. In the film written and directed by Brady Corbet, Portman will play a fictional musician named Celeste. To play the part, Portman clearly needed a rock star makeover.

Not only is the new 'do surprisingly short, but in the scene, Portman wears it slicked back and gelled. The pompadour-inspired style is fierce, and fits the rock star role perfectly. To pair with the bold haircut, Portman's makeup artist gave her a smokey eye and berry-kissed lip. And her outfit? A stylish leather jacket, ripped jeans, and a tee complete the transformation.

Even if slicked-back hair is a little too bold for your day-to-day style, the star's new cut may just inspire you to be courageous and try a shorter haircut the next time you visit the salon. In fact, shorter cuts like Portman's are on-trend right now, and other celebrities, including Katie Holmes, have been spotted rocking the look. Think you're ready to make the move?
