The reality star, who turns 17 on Sunday, shaved the back of her head on a whim.

It’s Kylie Jenner’s 17th birthday Sunday, and the star is celebrating at the Teen Choice Awards with a new ‘do.

“I shaved the back of my head for my birthday,” announced Jenner in a pre-award show red-carpet interview (she arrived with sister Kim Kardashian). Along with their family, the sisters won the Choice TV Reality Show award for Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

“I was just doing my hair today and I was like, should I trim it a little?” said Jenner, who then decided, “Why not shave the back of my head? So I did.”

The haircut already has the seal of approval from big sis Kardashian, who recalled having the same haircut when she was 12 years old. “The cool thing to do is shave the underneath instead of the side of your head, so you can see it when it’s in a ponytail,” she explained.

It’s not the first time Jenner has flaunted bold hair; the reality star has sported a number of rainbow-hued hair colors, thanks to Daniel Moon of Andy LeCompte salon. (We'll add a photo once one is available.)

Will undercuts be hair’s hot new thing?
