Taylor Swift's Secret Talent: Cutting Hair!

04/08/2011 at 03:30 PM ET

It seems the singing thing is working out for country star Taylor Swift, but just in case she ever fades out of the spotlight, she has a fallback plan: hair styling. During an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno Tuesday, Swift explained that her backup singer approached her while they were on the road, saying she wanted to do something “drastically different.” When Swift suggested a haircut, her singer said sure — and asked the 21-year-old to do the honors. “We’re just kind of delirious from the road,” Swift explained. “I get scissors, I’m like … I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m the last person you should suggest to cut your hair. But I cut her hair.” Thankfully, the finished product, which included blunt bangs, was satisfactory. “She looked awesome,” Swift boasted. “So I started cutting all the people on the road’s hair!” Tell us: Would you let a friend cut your hair?
