For the last few years that Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson has been on the scene, we’ve seen her bedecked in a range of wigs and hairstyles. But just this past weekend while showing off her svelte figure in a form-fitting black dress at the Black Girls Rock! soiree, Hudson showcased a chic short cut that we’re used to seeing on the likes of Nia Long and Halle Berry. Short on the sides with a little length at the top, the cut definitely shows more of Hudson’s face, and if you ask us, actually gives her a more youthful look as opposed to the lengthy lacefronts we had grown accustomed to seeing her wear over the last few years. Hudson wore a short wig for her work in the film Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete, so maybe she was inspired to try something new. Either way, it’s the perfect look for a woman we’re used to watching transform in front of our eyes. We’re calling this one a winner, but what about you? Check out more images of the new JHud below and let us know if you’re loving her look.
