Singer P!nk has debuted a drastic new haircut that’s left the chart-topper almost unrecognisable.

The 40-year-old posted a picture of herself to Instagram on Friday showing off a freshly buzzed head while cradling a pile of her blonde locks in her hands.

The “Try” hitmaker didn’t specify the exact motivation behind the chop and instead chose to caption the moody snap simply, “Letting Go”.

Prior to her shock snip, P!nk - born Alecia Beth Moore - was sporting her a silver-hued version of her trademark short hairstyle that featured short sides and a quiff on top.

P!nk’s new buzzcut

The mum-of-two treated her 7.3 million fans to a behind-the-scenes look at her transformation by sharing a snap of her hair strewn across the salon’s wooden floor to her Instagram Stories.

She made sure to tag the hairdresser behind her new ‘do, Pamela Neal, who is the artistic director at luxe US salon chain Benjamin Salon.

P!nk’s followers and celebrity pals alike have swarmed the comments section of her post to voice their thoughts on her radical new look.

“The most liberating!” wrote actor Kate Hudson, who shaved her head back in 2017.

“Twins!!!!,” commented actor Selma Blair, who earlier this year shaved her head in anticipation of treatment for multiple sclerosis.

“You are a badass. I had to have my head buzzed when I was diagnosed with breast cancer and I loved how liberating it was,” wrote a fan.

“Did it in my 20s, 30s, and 40s. One of the best feelings, but damn it gets cold! You are always looking beautiful and inspiring others too,” commented another.

Pink’s hair over the years

Throughout her two-decade career P!nk has tended to stick to shorter hairstyles, making her music scene debut in 1999 with fuchsia pink hair (as per her namesake).

Over the years, the triple Grammy award-winner has flirted with various hair colours including black, platinum, bubblegum and lavender.

Her latest style, however, appears to be the singer’s shortest yet.

P!nk’s daughter, eight-year-old Willow, is also somewhat of a hair chameleon having had one side of her head shaved back in September.

Proud dad Carey Hart shared a photo of Willow in the chair at a salon, captioning it “loving my punk rock daughter”.

Earlier this year, P!nk shared a video of herself dyeing Willow’s blonde locks blue, however, the couple’s youngest child, Jameson, 3, appears to be rocking his shoulder-length curls au naturale.
