Ciara on Her New Short Do: "I’m Just Having Fun!"

07/30/2009 at 04:00 PM ET


After Twittering about her new super short summer do, Ciara  gave a little more insight on the inspiration behind losing her ultra-long locks.  “We went in, we played around, we created something fun and that’s where it came from,” she tells PEOPLE of her new hairstyle created by hair stylist Kiyah Wright.  Looking stunning in a red Marchesa jumpsuit, the “Love, Sex and Magic” singer hosted the Express TXT L8TR Campaign party Wednesday night at Nobu West Hollywood to help increase awareness on the dangers of texting while driving. But her dramatic look was the question of the night.  “I have to admit I love my hair long,” confessed Ciara, “but trying shorter is fun too because with fashion and with women, our hair is our way of us expressing ourselves.  That’s kind of what I felt and that’s what inspired me to go short. I was like, ‘I just want to go short today,’ so I said to my hair stylist, [Kiyah], ‘what can we do?’”  And voila!  The new look emerged — along with some low maintenance perks and an obsession with a whole new product: the Tancho Stick, ($11 at  “You take it and you piece your hair.  This hair takes ten minutes to fix.  I wake up in the morning and I don’t have to rush as much.” Stylish and easy — does it get better than that? Tell us: Would you go as short as Ciara? –Shruti Dhalwala

I think she looks gorgeous with short hair. Her pixie cut frames her face beautifully and really accentuates those stunning cheek bones of hers.

Definitely an upgrade Ciara!!

And thanks for the hair tip :)

At first I didn’t know how I felt about her short hair-do, I was so used to seeing her with long hair. I like it, she has such a pretty face and the short do works for her. I don’t think I would cut my hair, I like my hair long.

She’s gorgeous!! She really looks like Wanda Sykes’s love child now. I love them both though. People in the public eye have to evolve constantly to stay on top.

It’s a great cut, but I don’t like it on her. She looked much sexier and could do much more with her long hair.
Everyone is going short now. She looks, older, but too much older.

I think that it is too fluffy. The hair almost looks like a wig. I also think that it makes her look old.
