Zosia Mamet is pleased with the results of her drastic new haircut and says she wanted to cut her locks ''forever''.
Zosia Mamet loves her new ''messy'' short hair.
The 'Girls' actress debuted her cutting-edge bob at the Golden Globe Awards last Sunday (12.01.14) and has now admitted she was bored of her long hair and fancied a radical change.
Speaking on the red carpet at the 'Girls' season three UK premiere at London's Cineworld Haymarket, she enthused: ''I've wanted to cut my hair for a very long time, I've had long hair forever. And I asked the powers that be on our show and they said I could go for it and I just did it!''
Zosia's ditsy character Shoshanna is famed for her quirky sense of style as well as her eccentric one-liners, and the actress thinks her alter-ego's hairstyles are one of the best things about playing her.
She explained: ''Shoshanna is good at doing her hair. I couldn't do all those hours.''
Show creator and star Lena Dunham agrees, revealing that the donut-style she famously sported in season two spawned thousands of Shoshanna copycat looks last Halloween.
Lena laughed: ''The amount that I got tweeted pictures of the donut-head hairstyle at Halloween was the best thing ever.''
Zosia braved the British weather on the red carpet last night (15.01.14), with the fashion-forward star dressed to impress in a pale pink Elisabetta Franchi playsuit.
Meanwhile, Lena opted for a prim white lace dress and Allison Williams looked stunning in a black racerback Alexander McQueen gown with brightly-coloured detailing.
'Girls' season three kicks off on Sky Atlantic on Monday, January 20 at 10pm.
