Hayden Panettiere On Her Spontaneous New Do: 'I Like Abrupt Changes'

Posted on

When it comes to her hair, Hayden Panettiere is proving herself quite the drama queen. After dying her tresses auburn and then chopping her shoulder-grazing locks into a pixie cut earlier this year, the Heroes star rocked an even shorter, back-to-blonde style at Wednesday’s 2010 CMT Music Awards. “It wasn’t scary,” the 20-year-old actress explained to PEOPLE of taking the plunge. “I’m pretty spontaneous. I like abrupt changes–it excites me.” Dressed in an asymmetrical turquoise-and-black Pucci dress, the petite vixen cut a striking figure — anchored, of course, by the bold new cut. “I love it — it’s daring and it’s easier for me,” she said. “You always try to find your own sense of style, so when I chopped my hair off I felt like I was my own self in my own way. I didn’t feel like I was trying to emulate anyone. I felt very me.” Tell us: What do you think of Hayden’s cut? –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley; reporting by Eileen Finan
