Seemingly trying to keep a low profile, she concealed her brunette tresses with a black fedora.
But while going through security check, Holmes was asked to remove her hat, unveiling the adorable pixie cut.
While this is certainly a dramatic change from her last look, this isn't the first time the former Dawson's Creek star rocked this hairstyle. She famously chopped her locks back in 2008, when she was still married to Tom Cruise and was a new mom to their now 11-year-old
