The short haircut that many girls decide to get when they first come to Wellesley College, a private womens' liberal arts school. Some associate this trend with the school's high queer population (many students come out upon arriving at Wellesley), the fact that long hair is difficult to take care of, no longer having to impress men in an all-female environment, or because the other women played with their hair too much.
Dude, did you see Ana? She totally went for the Wellesley chop!
