Book your salon appointments girls, the pixie cut is the new Bingle do.

Worthington posted a time lapse video of herself in the hairdresser’s chair on her Instagram account last night, showing the transformation process.

Her hairdresser Travis Balcke also posted a snap of her new look, with the caption: “Fresh hair cut for @laraworthington and happy times.”

The entrepreneur, model and new mum has paired up with accessories brand, The Daily Edited, to curate a campaign and capsule collection for the lifestyle brand, whose personalised touches have Instagram in a frenzy.

Why did you choose to work with The Daily Edited?
"Alyce Tran, one of the founders of The Daily Edited contacted me to curate a collection and direct the shoot, and when she was talking me through her business I was really inspired by her and her business partner. They started their business at the same time I started mine and to see what they have achieved is amazing. I also really love getting behind and supporting local Australian businesses."

Can you tell us a little about the pieces and colours you selected for the collection?
"I selected the pieces I would use daily in my everyday life and the colours reflect those that complement my wardrobe. I’m all about monochrome and neutrals."

Do you have a favourite piece from the collection?
"My favourite piece from the collection is the little cream notebook that I take to all my business meetings, I love that it’s personalised! I also love the iPhone cover because I’m forever dropping my phone - it protects it and is stylish at the same time."

Has the birth of your son changed the way you keep organised day-to-day?
"Totally! It's organised chaos, but I just do my best - I have the little The Daily Edited notebook that I write everything in to keep track, so I don’t forget."

How has your morning routine changed since you son’s arrival?
"It revolves around him – I generally try and get up at least an hour and a half before he wakes to check emails, shower and catch up on work but as soon as he wakes I put everything down so I’m 100% present. I just it take one day at a time though. It’s an antidote to selfishness and forces you to live fully in every moment - and it definitely brings out a more patient side. You feel an overwhelming love that you didn’t know existed."

Now that you’ve started your own business do you have any tips for budding entrepreneurs?
"Learn to ask, it never hurts to ask. And surround yourself with inspiring and positive people."

Is there anything about starting your own business that has surprised you?
"To be honest, I’m surprised by the overwhelming response to my products – it’s been so positive! I’ve been doing everything myself with a very small support team and I think that has been the best thing for me to understand my customer and to make the right judgements. I know every single sale that goes through and every email that comes through customer feedback. Right now I’m working on a new short- and long-term business plan now that I’ve reached my one-year milestone."

Have you found it hard to juggle becoming a new mum with running a business?
"I’m always impressed with women who have a great work-life balance; knowing how and what to prioritise is important, and it's something I’m certainly working on. I think it will always be a constant juggle."

Where do you see The Base headed in the future?
"I just wanted to create something that was exciting to be a part of and something that makes people feel good about themselves. I want to consolidate for the moment and get the right structures in place for global expansion. We’ve just signed Sephora in Australia and we will launch with them at the end of this month. We’ve also had huge interest from other key global retailers but I want to get the back-end of the business from production, manufacturing and a new product development strategy in place first. Slow and steady wins the race!"

What’s the best beauty tip or trick you’ve picked up in your career?
"When I’m showering, I’ll turn the water to cold for the last couple of minutes, which invigorates and energises you. It also closes the hair cuticle and makes your hair really shiny."

The Daily Edited X Lara Worthington curated collection is now available on The Daily Edited.

Lara Worthington, nee Bingle, is back in Sydney with husband Sam Worthington and their six-month-old boy, Rocket, as she steps back into the spotlight as a style ambassador for Westfield and as a guest of the Bazaar in Bloom charity event. Lara, 28, talks to Kate Waterhouse about being a new mum, her business The Base, "relentless" paparazzi and what she does for fun.

What is a day in the life of you? No two days are the same … It's almost like controlled chaos and every day I'm learning something new … I try to juggle things the best I can.

Motherhood is amazing, the best thing I have ever done. - Lara Worthington

What are you doing back in Australia? I'm back as the style ambassador for Westfield. The campaign really resonated with me and felt like a good fit … It's all about being yourself and being comfortable with who you are, and not trying to be like anyone else. "Today I Am" ... is a positive message and I felt like it was a good alignment with where I'm at with my life today.

What are you working on at the moment? Being a mum! It's a full-time job. I'm also working on expanding my self-tanning and beauty brand, The Base.

Tell me about The Base. I wanted to create products that I use every day ... I'm all about simplicity, so it made sense to create uncomplicated, minimalistic products to enhance natural beauty, rather than cover it up. I created the products as a woman knowing what I wanted to use… after being in the industry for over a decade and having hundreds of products applied to my face and body ... I also wanted to get into the business and learn – everything from packaging, warehousing, product development, marketing and the back end of the website; I know every sale that goes through, and I run all of the social media so I can have the interaction with my customers.

With so many tanning products on the market, what makes The Base unique? The tone and smell… I worked really carefully with my formulators on getting the right golden/olive tone… Many self-tanners can be orange. We also have The LB Cream – it's my must-have product to use every day, especially since having Rocket, there is literally no time, as I'm sure you will agree – [so] it's a multipurpose cream ... We've just launched two new LB creams, so there are now four shades. I have two limited-edition Lip2Cheek shades coming out and a really clever universal bronzer that will be launched towards the end of November ... For me, it's about consolidating the brand for the next few months, doing some more market research and continuing to connect with my customers.

Tell me about your involvement in The Royal Hospital for Women Foundation's Bazaar in Bloom charity? I shot the November cover for Harper's Bazaar and during my interview with Kellie Hush, she mentioned Bazaar in Bloom – a charity event she was working on to raise money for The Royal Hospital for Women. Each year the money raised will go towards improving services and developing further research that will benefit women from all over Australia. This year the money raised will go towards a world-class fertility research centre. I think it's important to be able to give back and help raise awareness.

Why are you passionate about this cause? I guess as a new mother, I now appreciate what a gift it is to be able to conceive naturally. To be able to support other women trying to fulfil their dreams of becoming mothers really connects with me. I have friends that have had to use IVF to conceive and it can be an emotional and expensive process … The Fertility Research Centre will be Australia's first holistic centre offering IVF and assisted-reproduction services to all patients, regardless of socio-economic status. The Royal Hospital for Women also saves lives every day of babies born with life-threatening illnesses. When you hear the stories they're heartbreaking.

How is motherhood treating you? It's amazing, the best thing I have ever done. I'm a new mum so I'm just trying to get used to everything and the learning curve is huge. But no amount of words can explain how much I love Rocket

What's the best thing about being a mum? Rocket's laugh and waking up to him in the morning.

How do you juggle being a working mum? It's hard at times but we've been fortunate enough to manage our schedules so if I'm working, Sam will look after Rocket and vice versa. It just takes a little more planning and preparation.

What is Sam like as a father? He's born to be a dad.

Is keeping Rocket out of the public eye important to you and Sam? Rocket being a kid and enjoying life is the most important thing to us.

Do you hope to grow your family? Yes! I'd love to have a big family, which is why supporting the Royal Hospital for Women is important to me. Sam and I both only have one sibling – I have a brother and he has a sister – so we both want a big family … lots of kids around the table and at Christmas. The thought of it makes me really happy.

You and Sam are constantly in the public eye. Is it frustrating having paparazzi follow your every move? It's challenging. We both understand that it's a byproduct of our professions and we are OK with that. But it's when photos of our son are taken without our consent or his, and our safety and the safety of others is compromised: it's a minority, but there are some paparazzi who are relentless.

You've been a household name for over a decade. What is the biggest misconception about you? There are so many. But I know who I am and my family and friends know the truth and that's all that matters. I think motherhood really changes you in that way. Someone said to me the other day it softens you but also hardens you … and I think it's true. I just don't take the criticism on board any more … I just try and focus on the things that really matter.

What do you do for fun? I go to the beach and movies, I love The Blacklist TV show, cooking for my family and friends. I also love anything creative, like making little films and taking photographs, and having baths with Rocket!

Where do you see yourself in five years? Hopefully with more babies, happy, healthy and with a successful business.

She's kept a relatively low profile since becoming a wife and mum, but Lara Worthington delighted fans on her return to Melbourne today.

The last time Worthington - formerly Bingle - was in Melbourne, it was for her wedding to her actor husband.

She took more than a year off after the wedding, enjoying being a mum to their baby, Rocket Zot.

But she stepped back in the limelight today at an event and meet-and-greet at Westfield Doncaster.

She arrived in the city on Friday morning, and hot-footed it to the Tan for a walk.,.
“It’s one of my favourite things to do in Melbourne - it’s so calming and tranquil there,” she said.

She tucked into dinner at Il Solito Posto in the city last night, before heading to Doncaster today for her pop-up store to promote her bronzing and tanning product, The Base.
