At last night's MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn, "Secret Life of the American Teenager" star Shailene Woodley, 21, showed off her new do - short, slicked back hair.

Woodley was always known for her long brunette waves, but she recently tweeted a pic of her locks coming off and "The Spectacular Now" star told ABC News, she couldn't be happier with the new look.

"I love it," she said. "It's totally free. You get out of the shower, you wipe it down with a towel and it's done."

Woodley also posted via Tumblr that she had cut off her hair for a new movie role and donating it to Children With Hair Loss.

"I have the blessed gift of donating my long locks to a wonderful organization who will then create a wig for someone in need. WHAT AN HONOR," she wrote.
