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

I love it!

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!

Kelly on

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

Lisa on

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

PAUL on

THE FACT THAT SHE IS REALLY SKINNY AND HAS NO BOOBS COULD BE THE FACT THAT SHE IS MISTAKEN FOR A BOY

Sarah on

I love it, she looks fantastic! I wish I could look that great with short hair.

Nicola on

She is a very pretty girl and can sport any haircut!

China on

VERY cute! She definately has the features for this cut!

Laura J. on

I definitely don’t have the nerves to do that, but she looks amazing!

Angie on

Love it… she totally pulls off the short hair look :)

Macy on

She can definitely pull it off. I normally don’t like pixie cuts on *anyone* but on her its pretty good.

andrea on

gorgeous. love her eyes. may have to try my makeup like that!

Annie on

Beautiful! If I knew my hair would look that great short, I would do it too!

rere on

LOVE IT!It’s the perfect cut for her. It brings
out her eyes. Wow, I wish I looked like that if
I ever get a cut like that. Since I know I won’t
I won’t get a cut like that.;-)

sarah on

I love it!!
She is gorgeous and looks FAB
I just got my hair cut shorter and I wanted to do a pixie but didnt find one I like but I love this!

Marie on

Love short hair! Love it on her!

Mecal on

I’m not usually a fan of short hair but she looks stunning no matter what!

Amber on

She looks gorgeous, but honestly, I had no idea who she was until I read her name. She looks totally different, but she still looks gorgeous!

Linda L on

Love it! Wish I had the face to rock an adorable cut like that……

Jon on

nicole on

She is adorable any way she wears her hair!

sarah b on

I LOVE IT!!! She looks positively adorable!!! I wish I had the guts to get a pixie cut…

Rowan on

Who?

Kate on

This girl can do no wrong! Love it!

ae on

She looks pretty no matter what . . .but the cut makes her look a lot older than she is. IMO

Paloma on

It’s aaaight but I liked her little sassy bob better. I know the bob is kind of sliding back out of fashion but I still think it looks a little better than this cut. She’s is still gorgeous anyway. She’s my favorite on 90210 followed by Jessica Lowndes. Brunettes rock!

Lisa on

Cute!

Lori A on

Very nice! She has the face for it.

laramie on

i think its super adorable

Carly on

She is beautiful no matter what the hairstyle.

Mary on

I love it! I am printing it off in fact and taking it to my stylist to get my hair cut the same way!

julia on

it looks really good on her:D

smithie on

perfect cut.i absolutely love it.hope to see more of it from different angles.

California Surfer on

I totally think that Jessica should have got the original kate gosselin cut and my pet rat has the same name!!!

Gina on

Love it!!!! Great new look for summer.

Elena on

Love it! Why be like every star and starlet in Hollywood. Kudos for breaking free of the pack!

mary on

looks cute on her =)

G on

She always looks amazing! I love her style and her hair – long or short!

Sara on

such a shame, she is soooooooooooo beautiful but this cut just doesn’t work for her =(

C on

super cute! she’s a gorgeous lady!

ann p on

no offene but if you think she looks like that in her everyday life, youre a little cuckoo. when she says ppl think shes a boy im sure shes wearing a boy t and jeans with no makeup or hair styled. after all shes boasted about hiving like a thousand t’s. i can cedrtainly see how shes mistqaken for a boy with no makeup, no hairstyled, wearing a by style t and jeans.

btw i think she looked best when her hair was long.

Very cute!!

Wes on

She still looks beautiful but I think short hair makes her look older and she’s suppose to play a high school student. Hopefully she grows it out in season 3 because her long hair makes her look younger in my opinion :)

Kelly on

It is so flattering! I think she has the perfect face and hair for that cut! I sense that she will have many copy cats now!

Mel on

Super cute! She’s gorgeous regardless!

Connie on

I love it!
