Earlier this week we saw photos of Heidi Klum showing off her shorter new hair’do and today we get to see photos of Heroes star Hayden Panettiere showing off her shorter new ‘do too. While Heidi went for a more momish bob, Hayden decided to chop off almost all of her hair for her striking new look … behold:
Hayden Panettiere debuted a dramatic new short cut and colour in Los Angeles this week. The 20-year-old showed off the haircut as she attended the Global Home Tree Earth Day reception hosted by Avatar director James Cameron at the Nokia Theatre. In a vast change to her usual long locks, Panettiere sported a cropped hairdo, slicked back with a quiff and sideburns. And she’d dyed her hair a dark blonde colour, just a couple of weeks after she returned to her original blonde colouring following a foray into dark auburn that lasted several months. Hayden’s blonde locks helped make her a typical all-American girl pin-up, however, the new hairstyle marks quite a departure in her appearance. In fact, it accentuates her impish looks to maximum effect and certainly goes against the cute, girl-next-door that launched her to fame. And it seems Miss Panettiere dislikes the image that she became famous for, earlier this year revealing that she doesn’t like being referred to as cute … Wearing an LBD with a sheer section across the breast plate and arms, the actress attended the event, which celebrated the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, with her boyfriend, boxer Wladimir Klitschko. She has been dating the Ukranian, who towers over her at 6ft 6, since late last year.
Wow! Well, it’s a statement. I have to say, tho, that while I didn’t really respond to Heidi Klum‘s new ‘do, I think I like this new look on Hayden much better. The cut looks heaps better from the front, notsomuch from the side. Altho Hayden looks like she fell out of Robert Palmer‘s classic music video for Addicted to Love, I don’t hate this look on her. What do y’all think … do we like?
