I feel bad. The girl clearly wanted to look edgier, but when I look at these pictures I see pantsuits. Don’t get me wrong, Hayden Panettiere has gorgeous features and chopping the locks only brought them more to the forefront when she debuted her new hairstyle at the Global Home Tree Earth Day reception hosted by James Cameron in LA yesterday. But the helmet styling is intense.
The 20-year-old is going through some identity changes via her hair these days. She went fire engine red, then brunette, short and now shorter. When she first went red she shared her reasoning with Us Magazine. “I’m typically a very fiery person anyway, but I just feel like cute and blonde and little is just so one category and one thing and changing my hair color, I feel like I don’t have to overcompensate so much for the fact that I don’t like being called cute or anything like that – especially being all 5ft 2 of me.”
Is it just me or does the short hair actually make her look shorter? There is something refreshing about her not wanting to be another long blonde haired Hollywood clone, though. I would rather hang out with Hilary than Paris any day. I think I like the length, but will eagerly await to see what it looks like when the hair gel is washed out.
