Her hairstylist Chris Naselli tells BuzzFeed Life the chop was all Mindy's idea.

"Mindy called me a few weeks ago and said, 'Hey! What are you doing next Thursday?', followed quickly by, 'I want to cut all my hair off. Will you do it?'", Chris says. "Mindy is so adventuresome with style. The change instantly felt right – a young, flirty, sexy summer look. It's a great shape that fits her so perfectly."

Chris says Mindy's new 'do works best on fine to medium hair and shares the key to getting her look.

"Framing the face is really critical: Make sure your stylist keeps the length that finishes just about one to one and a half inches below the chin," he tells BuzzFeed Life. "Keep the ends blunt with a deconstructed interior for texture and movement."

Chris also advises investing in a good flat and curling iron. His favorite flat iron is the T3 SinglePass X 1.5, and he says the ghd Curve Classic Wave Wand is great for curling.

To maintain the easy and carefree style, one of Mindy's favorite go-to products is R+Co Chiffon Styling Mousse.

It adds volume, body, and shine but it's still lightweight. For hair that frizzes often, he says a quality keratin treatment may be worth a try.

If you're all the way here for things that require minimal care, Mindy's new bob is where it's at.

Chris says that it's quick to style and offers versatility, too; all you need is a round brush and blow dryer. "This cut looks great super straight and sleek, or can look edgy and cool when worn natural or with a bit of wave," he points out. "Natural, short beach waves is classic summer to me."
