Hayden Panettiere has been sporting long, blonde hair for years, which are practically a necessity for her country music–singing superstar character on Nashville. Recently, however, she decided it was time for a change. With help from New York City’s Anthony Leonard Salon, the actress (who’s known for her love of braids) chopped off major inches in order to achieve a fresh, playful lob. Scroll down to see the photo!


The haircut was more than just a beauty decision, as haircuts tend to be. In her tweet, Panettiere likened her fresh 'do to a new beginning of sorts. Her post also happens to be her first bit of engagement on social media in a while. In early October, months after giving birth to her first child, Panettiere checked herself into a treatment centre for postpartum depression. It seems this haircut is not only stylish, but symbolic. What better way to return to a healthy, happy life than with a literal removal of dead ends? Plus, the style is so on-trend.
