Looking good, Dr. Lahiri! Writer and comedienne Mindy Kaling chopped off her long, black hair just in time for the warm, summer months. 

"Obsessed with my summer bob by @clarisshair. See ya sweaty neck, I got work to do," she captioned the Instagram snap of her new look. Her hairstylist Clariss Rubenstein also posted the picture, writing, "@mindykaling just try and be cuter. I dare you. #summerbob."

The Mindy Project creator and star, 34, has experimented with several hairstyles in the past few months. The Office alum tried out removable bangs for an appearance on Chelsea Lately in April and wore a pixie cut wig in the season 2 premiere of her hit Fox show. 

Kaling isn't the only sitcom star sporting a new 'do these days. On May 31, Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco cut off her blonde locks in favor of an edgy new pixie cut. Former Disney star Hilary Duff also lopped off her hair into a similar chic bob on May 29.
