Hayden Panettiere On Her Spontaneous New Do: 'I Like Abrupt Changes'

When it comes to her hair, Hayden Panettiere is proving herself quite the drama queen. After dying her tresses auburn and then chopping her shoulder-grazing locks into a pixie cut earlier this year, the Heroes star rocked an even shorter, back-to-blonde style at Wednesday’s 2010 CMT Music Awards. “It wasn’t scary,” the 20-year-old actress explained to PEOPLE of taking the plunge. “I’m pretty spontaneous. I like abrupt changes–it excites me.” Dressed in an asymmetrical turquoise-and-black Pucci dress, the petite vixen cut a striking figure — anchored, of course, by the bold new cut. “I love it — it’s daring and it’s easier for me,” she said. “You always try to find your own sense of style, so when I chopped my hair off I felt like I was my own self in my own way. I didn’t feel like I was trying to emulate anyone. I felt very me.” Tell us: What do you think of Hayden’s cut? –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley; reporting by Eileen Finan

I think she is beautiful but I dont like this cut on her. It just doesnt suit her well.

She is beautiful but her face is too round for that kind of cut. It doesn’t have to be super long but it does need to be longer than this to balance out her features.
