Mindy Kaling Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling debuted a short new haircut on Monday, explaining that it serves dual purposes: looking adorable and treating "sweaty neck."

"Obsessed with my summer bob by @clarisshair," The Mindy Projectstar wrote on Instagram. "See ya sweaty neck, I got work to do."

Beard or no beard: Which is hotter?

"Just try and be cuter. I dare you," Kaling's hairstylist Clariss Rubenstein posted on her own account.

Kaling is currently back to work in the writers' room of her Fox comedy, which she celebrated with a "back to school" manicure, natch.
