What made Maren Morris decide to chop of her beautiful locks?

A few days ago, she decided to snip off her luscious locks, debuting her new 'do on social media. Though it seemed like a sudden change, it turns out she'd planned this chop two or three months ago.

She chatted about her new hair style on the ACM Awards red carpet, saying, "I didn’t want to cut it on a whim... It was just time for a change. I just love when girls rock short hair because they can’t hide behind anything. I feel more empowered with short hair.”
