Jennifer Lawrence: Catching pixie-cut fire

Pixie dust is sprinkling its way throughout Hollywood in the form of pixie haircuts, with Jennifer Lawrence being the latest celeb to bid adieu to her flowing long locks and say hello to the elfin look.

The star of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past" debuted the chop — that recently claimed Pamela Anderson, Kristin Chenoweth and Beyonce — on Wednesday.

A photo of the Oscar-winning franchise queen du jour was posted on her official Facebook page with the caption: "Headed up north for #GLOBALFANDAY with The Hunger Games Catching Fire cast. Follow this page all day for updates!"

Updates such as her new haircut, we suppose.

[Updated, 4:15 p.m. PST Nov. 6: At the fan event, the playful actress explained why she opted for the shortened look, first joking that it was to upset "Hunger Games" director Francis Lawrence.

"I just did it to make Francis mad," she joked (via the Daily Mail). "I did it just to annoy him. He totally thought it was me giving him the finger."

"But it's not," she admitted. "It's just fried from being dyed so much."]

Given her comically cheeseball smile in the photo, the 23-year-old seems thrilled about the new style.

"She loves it!" a source close to JLaw told E! News.

The new look has the Dior spokeswoman's blond locks cropped short in the back with a long side-swept bang in the front. 

That same bang was peeking out from under her beanie at LAX on Monday and marked the return of her natural blond hue after she was filming "Catching Fire" as a brunet.

Still, is anyone else getting post-"Harry Potter" Emma Watson flashbacks too?
