Sheryl Crow knows that hair can be a security blanket.

That's why she was a little bit afraid to cut off her length, even though she was dying to try something different at the end of last year.

The Evolution singer told Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager on the March 29 episode of Today with Hoda and Jenna that she wanted to cut her hair before she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in November but held off, just in case the big chop didn't go as planned.

"I wanted to do it before the Rock Hall but was like, ‘What if I hate it?’ So I kept my rock hair until the ceremony was over and then I went and was like, ‘Chop it,' " Crow, 62, said on the show.

And when she said she waited until the ceremony was over and then cut it, she wasn't kidding — she actually trimmed it down the very next day.

"I went from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to the next morning to the ballfield, which is what we do [as parents], and then to the hair salon and was like [chop]," she told the co-hosts with a laugh while miming chopping off her hair. Eight inches of it, to be exact!

Both Kotb and Bush Hager complimented the singer's hairstyle, and Crow said it's been fun to have it so short. She added, "It’s been a long time since I’ve had short hair!"

Crow also told Kotb and Bush Hager that she recently joined TikTok to kick off 2024 and is slowly getting the hang of the social media platform. Though she has two teenage sons — Wyatt, 16, and Levi, 13 — neither of them are allowed to use the video-based platform, so she's on her own with navigating the popular app.

That doesn't mean her sons don't have an opinion her using TikTok, though.

She told Seth Meyers on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Thursday night that they definitely have thoughts on her music and her career these days.

"I actually played 'Alarm Clock' for them because that's the first song that came out on the record," she said. "It's about how much I hate my alarm clock, and it literally was inspired by 13-year-old Levi, because we are not morning people. Across the board. Wyatt jumps out of bed. He's like, 'Days on, let's go.' "

"I also wrote a song called 'Broken Record,' and I played it for them and they were like, 'Mom, you can not put that on your record. No.' Same with TikTok, 'Mom, you can not be on TikTok. That is so cringey,' " Crow recounted to Meyers.
