Short hair don't care!

Jennifer Hudson buzzed off her hair a couple of weeks ago, but she waited until Thursday to finally debut the dramatic 'do -- and it looks amazing!

The American Idol alum has posted 25 (yes, really!) photos from her whirlwind 24 hours -- which included flying back to the U.S. after a stint in Germany in order to celebrate Hatch Day, an annual event held in honor of Hudson's late nephew, Julian -- and nine of those showed off her fierce new look.

Hudson has sported a number of hairstyles over the years, from bangs to waves to a pixie cut. As this newest look is her most daring yet, it's no wonder the 33-year-old singer-actress wanted to show it off.

"All black every thang! Who needs hair, when u serving face!" she captioned her buzz's debut on Instagram.

Hudson continued to snap away, showing us her the new hairdo from many angles.

There’s this fierce pose with her posse before a performance in Germany:

Her en route to performing look included a bow-adorned LBD and a cup of tea:
