Elsa Pataky's Drastic New Haircut - Love It or Leave It?

Elsa Pataky chopped off her hair into a new, short 'do -- and it's easy to imagine why. As the new mom to a young baby girl (who recently turned seven months old!) with a hotter-than-hot husband, Chris Hemworth, the 36-year-old Spanish actress needed a cut that was easy to style and required minimal effort. Hey, keeping up with a baby is hard work! 

While her old, long style had a Rapunzel-like quality with a gorgeous wavy texture, the new style features short, choppy layers wtih a side bang and middle part. She also seems to have highlighted her hair, with the color being much brighter than before. 

While we're all for switching up your style, we're not sure yet if the short look is our favorite for Elsa. (Then again, we're partial to the long length!)
