Bye-Bye Bob! Jessica Stroup is All About the Pixie Cut

Renee Zellweger and Hayden Panettiere may be the latest stars to pick a pixie cut, but 90210‘s Jessica Stroup had a different star in mind for her new cropped cut. “I wanted to do the Audrey Hepburn thing,” Stroup told PEOPLE at last night’s Young Hollywood Awards. But it finally took seeing the look on a stylish pal to get Stroup into the salon. “What sold it was when I was walking down the street outside my house, and one of my neighbors was rocking the short hair,” she admitted to PEOPLE. “And I finally I took a picture [of her] and said, ‘I’m going to copy you, are you cool with that?'” And while she has set herself apart from the other long-locked Jessicas of Hollywood, she’s experiencing one unintended consequence. “A lot of people don’t recognize me, and a lot people think that I’m a boy,” she jokes. “But some people think it’s chic, and when I hear that I have to give them a big hug.” Guess Jessica owes us a big bear hug then — we think the new look is fab! Tell us: Do you like Jessica Stroup’s new pixie do or do you miss her old bob?reporting by Reagan Alexander

Such a stylish cut, she looks great! She’s got such feminine features, I don’t know how she could be mistaken as a boy!

The cut is absolutely perfect. And with such delicate features and gorgeous eyes, I find it hard to believe anyone mistakes her for a boy!

Doesn’t matter what the hairstyle, Jessica is gorgeous. A natural beauty. But the hair is super cute!
