Strictly Come Dancing professional Nancy Xu has unveiled a brand new hairstyle after cutting her super long hair off for children’s charity The Little Princess Trust.

The 30 year old is known for her signature waist-length raven hair, so chopping it into a long bob really is a huge transformation for her.

Sharing a few snaps of her new look on Instagram, the professional dancer wrote: “How much a changing of hairstyle make the difference! Long hair has always been my image, because short hair has been always my fear to try, not knowing how I could have looked like.

“But this time the reason was stronger than my fear. I DID IT,” she continued. “Because I knew that my hair will bring the smile on someone's face. Someone who needs a smile and care. This makes me the happiest girl. And after all ~ I love my new haircut! love to everyone! Thank you @lucajoneshair @kitchhair for helping me and make this happen.”

The Little Princess Trust makes free wigs for children and young people with cancer. Evidently Nancy’s followers were both obsessed with the new haircut and her reason for going for the chop.

“Aaaah, well done Nancy! My little girl donated her hair too last year. Such an amazing cause and you look fabulous!” one commented below the post, as another added, “It suits you so well”.

A third fan chimed in with, “Love it, you look smokin’” as a fourth exclaimed “What a lovely thing to do and it looks wonderful”.

Many of Nancy’s Strictly co-stars also rushed to praise the new look in the comments section of the post, including Janette Manrara, Amy Dowden and Motsi Mabuse.

Although she joined the show back in 2019, the most recent series of BBC's Strictly Come Dancing was Nancy’s first as a competing pro.

She was partnered with CBeebies presenter Rhys Stephenson, with the pair making it all the way to the semi-finals – also achieving the elusive 40 marks for their Charleston – but ultimately placed fourth after losing the dance-off to John and Johannes.

Hopefully we’ll see Nancy and her shorter ‘do competing on our screens again later this year!
