If you haven't been able to tell actresses Tia and Tamera Mowry apart, you will be able to now!
Tia -- who once had long, curly locks -- is now donning a pixie hairdo.
Although the 34-year-old star of "Sister, Sister" and the Style Network's reality TV show "Tia & Tamera," admitted to Us Weekly that she cried while getting her haircut, she recommends that women go for a short 'do if it's something they want.

"I really wasn't expecting the shock value. A lot of people ask me, 'What advice would you give to women who want to chop it off?' I said, 'Don't think about it because if you do you won't do it.' But it's very liberating and it definitely saves time."
The mother of 15-month-old Cree Taylor doesn't have much time to fuss with her appearance in the morning so her new 'do comes with many benefits.
"I am so happy that I decided to cut my hair. It literally takes me three minutes to do my hair," she told Us Weekly. "I get out of the shower, put some conditioner in it, and it's just 'let's go' and I love that! I think it's very very important to find products that allow us to be able to have more time to do things like that."
Her sister, Tamera, is nine months pregnant and as Tia told TheBump.com, "she's about to give birth any day now."
Tia is looking forward to seeing her nephew and son Cree play together.
"Tamera and I said that we can't wait to see them together," she told TheBump.com. "We actually think they're going to get together and gang up on us some day."
Tia loves spending time with her son and watching him grow and develop into his own person.
"He's becoming this little man with his own personality," she said. "I have become so in love with his little nuances. I sometimes giggle, and he'll so the same thing, but throw his hand up and his head back."
Tia told Us Weekly she'd rather spend time with her baby than worry about her weight and become obsessive with the gym.
"And it's okay for you to not have to be in the gym every single day to try to lose your weight," she said. "Because for me personally, I like to spend most of my time with my child [to] savor these moments because they're not a little tiny baby forever."
