Taylor Swift Surprises Fans With Faux Bob Haircut at 'Eras Tour' Film Premiere

Don't fret, Swifties. Not an inch of hair had to be cut for Taylor Swift's faux bob.

With some of the oldest hairstyle tricks in the book, Taylor Swift gave the illusion that she'd chopped several inches of her flowing, blonde locks when she brought back her faux bob look on Wednesday (Oct. 11) at the premiere of her Eras Tour concert film.

A few well-placed pins can shrink long hair like Swift's into a pixie cut without as much as a trim. Swift has donned a comparable look before, most notably for the 2013 MTV VMAs. So, Swifties panicking over a drastic change by their pop idol can rest assured that we haven't necessarily entered a new stylistic era for Swift.

This time around, Allure described Swift's temporary hair transformation as a "chin-length bob full of soft curls and little tendrils escaping the pins for more movement and texture, plus slightly curled bangs just brushing her brows."

Swift also wore a blue, floral Oscar de la Renta gown with cutouts plus pearls and, of course, bright red lipstick.

The premiere took place at the Grove in Los Angeles. Beyonce was among the celebrities in attendance. Notable absences include Travis Kelce, who in all likelihood was focused on tonight's Thursday Night Football game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos.

"I'm so glad I'll never know what my life would've been like without [Beyone's] influence," Swift wrote on Instagram, adding that "she's been a guiding light throughout my career and the fact that she showed up tonight was like an actual fairytale."

The film, which debuts globally tomorrow (Oct. 13),  is on pace for a record-setting opening weekend. Per Variety, it's expected "to generate up to $125 million from approximately 3,850 theaters in North America, according to early estimates. It's also expected to add $30 million to $50 million from 4,150 venues internationally in more than 90 countries for a global start upwards of $150 to $175 million."
