Posted Tuesday April 8, 2014 2:15 PM GMT

Getting into the spirit of the seaon, Mindy Kaling showed off her new 'do on Instagram Monday afternoon (April 8).

The "Mindy Project" babe rocked new fringe and captioned her pics, "Summer bangs!" and "I told Denno (@kateydenno) and Clariss (@clarisshair) I wanted to look like "one of Pharrell's friends" and I think they did a great job. @helmutlang blazer and tshirt, @marcjacobs bling @Gucci shoes."

After trimming her coif, the "Office" actress headed over to the set of "Chelsea Lately" for a hilarious interview.

While sitting down with Handler, Mindy explained why her character on the Fox comedy has such an interesting sex life. "I have that personality where I was such a nerd -- I am such a nerd -- that I can only enjoy those situations looking out inside. I'd be dead if I lived the life of my character."

"She drinks and dates like a party animal. She's like Lindsay Lohan's sex life, but she's a doctor. It's a TV show -- that's why it works like that -- but it's kind of fun because I don't live that life," Mindy added.
