Hayden Panettiere has been sporting long, blond locks 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 new 'do to a new beginning of sorts. Her post also happens to be her first bit of engagement on social media in months. In early October, months after giving birth to her first child, Panettiere checked herself into a treatment center 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.
