The actress' sleek style is a chic alternative to the long, beachy waves of last summer.

It's only June but already we're seeing that last summer's go-to 'do—long, beachy waves—is being replaced by chin-length bobs and baby bags. On Monday, Canadian actress Nina Dobrev took the bob to the next level with a sleek look that may be our favorite summer style of all.

Dobrev wowed the crowd at the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards with a layered asymmetrical style (the longest pieces just skimming her cheekbones). While her look may have been the result of a deceptively tricky updo (her stylist, Chris McMillan, captioned a photo of his work with #undercut #butnot) instead of a new haircut, the effortless look is inspiring us to go shorter. The style is super low-maintenance and an easy way to beat the heat!

One word of advice? Consider booking an appointment ASAP, so you can be ahead of the curve before the style blows up in no time.
