No, Kristin Chenoweth did not dress up as Pamela Anderson and her pixie cut for Halloween. The actress is the newest member of the Best Blonde Chops Club.

Chenoweth became the latest star to chop off her long blonde hair, leaving stylist Jonathan Hanousek’s salon on Thursday with an adorable new pixie cut.

“Look who came to the salon today!!!” Hanousek wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of the Emmy and Tony winner sporting her new look. “@KChenoweth went short today for her new film!! We had sooo much fun!”

Chenoweth, 45, follows other lock-chopping actresses like Charlize Theron and, just this week, Anderson, who shocked everyone when she stepped up with a very chic, very short chop.

Chenoweth has experimented with layers, extensions, bangs and more styles in the past, but we think the new look suits her well, accentuating her bone structure and giving her an a more sophisticated appearance.

How about you: What do you think of the star’s short hair? Do you miss her longer waves?

Looks awesome! I loved her on GCB!!

Kelly on

I love this look! I wish I could pull this cut off. I fear I’d just look like a boy.

lara on

Looks super!! I like that it is a bit longer than some of the cuts. She is tiny and can totally pull this off.

Meg on

Love it!

smithy on

Looks great on her….adore.

Tigs on

She can pull it off.

Jac on

I hesitate to say, “When you’re older…” because Kristin and Pamela are NOT old, but once you’re at a certain age long hair ages you. In my opinion, a lot of women in their 40s on up look younger when their hair is shoulder length or shorter. I think both Kristin and Pamela look great and they also look younger, which is great.

MF on

Looks like Victoria Beckham!

Seabot on

I think it looks great on her. It’s not pulling a Pamela Anderson though, people had pixie cuts long before Anderson did.

Sarah on

Wow! Looks beautiful!

Tina on

The cut looks good on her. But she looks sick. Sunken eyes. Maybe it’s because she’s not wearing makeup.

Patti on

I think that Pam and Kristin both look great. Pixie is big right now. Also, women that have had long hair all their life find it incredibly liberating.

launchingpad on

much better. she is a bit too old for such loooong hair. like kelly, i wish i could pull of the look. she looks great…sophisticated.

DebbieLG on

Love, love, love it! She looks great!

Amanda on

The haircut looks great on her, but now she looks like a blonde Victoria Beckham!

mrsmass on

so short cuts are now Pam’s thing like how anyone who cut their hair after Miley was taking a cue from her?

melissa on

She”s so cute

Ridiculous on

I wasn’t expecting to like this when I first read the headline but now that I’ve seen the photo she really pulled it off! I like this haircut on her a lot!

Kelly on

Not everyone can rock a cut like this, but she definitely can! Love it!

Tiffany on

I don’t think many women can pull off short hair. You have to have a very feminine face in order to not look like a boy. I don’t really like it but if she does that’s what’s important!

Sabri on

She looks great. I love it.

Amy on

Short hair is so chic, she looks beautiful!!!

Suzanne on

Gorgeous!!! That’s not a Pamela Anderson cut either. Kristen looks amazing and Pam looks like a strange boy

SumQuodSum on

Absolutely love it!!

Jay on

Kristin looks awesome. I wish I could pull this off but I think my face is too round. You need an angular face with prominent cheek bones or a thin face. I love it!!! Looks beautiful!!

lisa on

Super cute!

Jennifer on

Super cute cut. Looks good on her!!

Ava on

I like it. She looks younger…

Amaryllis on

I hate pixie haircuts on anyone but actual pixies.

Julie on

It looks great on her because she has pixie-like features! Love it!!

MD on

So cute! Jennifer Aniston should be next!

Jeremy hasse on

Kristin looks great with the pixie cut .

nybarbiedoll on

She looks so sophisticated and beautiful! Much younger too. Love it!

Texas on

She is a very pretty lady either way. But having said that, I prefer the longer hair. In the end though, the only thing that matters is what she thinks and how it makes her feel. No one else’s opinion really matters.

iantoad on

I love this new style…

guest on

LOVE it!

Ajah on

Good choice…Now she can hide that FIVEhead she has

Ugonna Wosu on

totally disagree with whoever below said long hair ages you after a certain age. Not true at all. Lots of women at a certain age still look great with longer hair.

Susan on

Looks way better on Pamela.

raa on

She looks 10 years younger. Great cut! Hope she keeps it.

Vanna on

I really like all of these short cute cuts!

Nancy on

You act like Pamela Anderson invented the Pixie cut. I wore one in the early 1960′ and wear one now at almost 70 years old. Get a grip and stop trying to create news when there is none!

EMG on

Love the long side swept bangs!

Tanya on

I love it, just wish I had the nerve to do it to myself!

Spike on

Yes, Oh it looks just super! By the way , who is this anyway.

Denise on

Wow, I acutally like it…She looks so much younger and Hipper…Very Nice!!!!

Karolina on

Love it! She definitely can pull off this look! I hope she keeps it.

Debbie Richerson on

I absolutely love her new look! She looks so young…not that she’s old, but the cut makes her look almost like a teenager! Cute.

Chris on

She looks pretty good!

Leigh on

Looks super cute, but can we stop with the comments about women and long hair? Women who are in their 40’s should not cut off their hair because they are in their 40’s! Some women look horrible with short hair, yet they feel the need to cut it off and then walk around looking very boyish or worse, manly. Long hair can look great on women of all ages as long as it is healthy.

GG on

This IS BIG news. I think I’ll take the day off and spread the news.

Jim on


Chris on

It does make her lips look bigger though (unless she just had botox) and her breasts look bigger too. Not a bad thing.

Jeff on

Love it!!

Bud Norton on

Pixy cuts look good on someone, like Kristen, who is actually a pixy.

denverpeet on

She looks fabulous!

Alexis on

Horrible she looks like a French boy. Why are women in Hollywood trying to look like men?. Its a shame she was so pretty before.


Hair is very cute. Lips are not. What are these women thinking having their lips injected??? It just looks so unnatural!


most men who look at that picture, wont even notice her hair!

Wow Factor on

She is sexy no matter how you do her hair.

Ginger on

I love her haircut.. it suits her perfectly.

Leslie on

She looks absolutely adorable in this haircut. It’s perfect for her. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!

TonyC on

She would look good with any hairdo.

krtmom on

Thank god she got bangs!!!

Gravy on

I’m Sooner Born, Sooner Bred, & When I Die I’ll be Sooner Dead. Broken Arrow, OK, where, Kristian is from, was the last place I lived in before movin’ to AZ. Long hair, short hair, shes I beautiful lady, inside & out! Nothing like an Okie Chick!

P on

She’s gorgeous no matter what.

Unknown on


Truthfinder on

She looks like a blonde Victoria Beckam (sp) in this pic.
Very cute and sassy.

Eddie Hatton on

NOOOOOOOO!!! Let’s be honest. She would look great Shaved. She looks fantastic now. I just can’t understand why when some women reach a certain age that they find it necessary to cut their hair.

Mickey on

She always looks wonderful. Although I am a little concerned about her lips in the ‘pixie’ picture. It looks as though she may have had them ‘plumped’ up? Not a good idea for a stick woman. 😜

Seattle Girl on

I love this and hope it becomes a new trend. Super long hair, extensions, etc. have been played.

Cate on

I love KC! <3 I think she looks beautiful. This cut looks great .

Randy on

Kristin has such a beautiful face she can make any DO look great. Love this pixie cut on her more each time I see it. She is so adorable with this cut, it makes her look so much different than any look she has had before. A beautiful soul shines through.

Just Me on

Nothing says “granny” and “over the hill” like a bleached blonde pixie cut on a middle aged woman…uggghhh

curlyk on

Super cute! She is so petite, and it fits her perfectly. Way to go!

Elizabeth on

It’s ok she still looks beautiful but I love her long hair more

A.R. on

A Petite cute haircut for a petite cute girl

velva on

she looks so much younger! she looked great before but now has a softness about her! love it!

Reading Deva on

Love it!

SusanMarlene on

Love the pixie on both Kristin and Pamela! I think shorter ‘dos on women, cut to highlight a strong jaw line or draw attention to their eyes, can make them look chic and put-together without much upkeep, except a trim every 4-6 weeks.

Ben on

She looks like Posh spice with it.

Sandy on

Looks like something Miley Cyrus would do, but there is not accounting for taste or looks.


If your 35 or older..shorter hair ladies…Stop trying to act like a teen…cause ya not…

michele on

I think that the pixie cut is an attempt to distract from some pretty obvious plastic surgery. Her cheek bones and nose look completely different!

jamine on

N…O. No,no,no.

jamine on

N…O. No,no,no.

Vee on

One great thing about being beautiful is that you can carry just about any look. She looks fabulous but I must say I wouldn’t have recognized her. (Loved her on GCB!)



Paul on


John Taylor on

Put her in the same kind and amount of makeup before I judge the new hair.

B Carol on

She looks very pretty, but the hair cut is not the only new thing. Shes obviously had some plastic surgery, face lift and lips done.

s Magoo on

Pretty, oh so pretty

F Tenderfoot on

She looks totally different. She is very pretty with short or long hair, but shes definately had some plastic surgery done. Dont you all see that??? But hey thats ok, whatever floats your boat.

Don on

I Like it

Bobby on


CBeckyBlog on

She looks adorable, takes some years off =)

Donna on

I think she looks younger and Hot! Love it on her.

dixie on

It looks just beautiful. She is such a tiny person and now has the right hair cut…love it.

Melanee Packard on

I LOVE IT! She has the face of an angel and this just shows it off!!! <3 <3 <3 it!

John on

Are you kidding. She could be bald and I would love this woman. What a personality, what a talent. She would look great no matter what she did. Now that’s a classy woman.

micki on

Adorable! I love it! I’ve had a pixie cut for years. IMO, women of a certain age look younger in short hair.

12know on

It’s true that once a woman hits her mid-forties, it’s time to reduce the length of her hair. However, pixie’s are not for everyone. You have to have a slender face and good bone structure. A woman with a wide face wouldn’t look good in a pixie. But a hairstyle at mid-neck length would work for nearly every woman, regardless of age.

Monty Visuvius on

Looks like the pixie haircut was done to distract the eye from some cosmetic surgery.

Sandy Cheeks on

I think the “New Pixie” everyone is sporting is actually called “removing your hai extensions”… haha! Come on people!

J on

She looks beautiful!!! I love seeing all the short cuts!!!

Oli- on

She looks her age now.

Dina on

Any woman looks good in this haircut, Stop it, don’t try it, you will lose your mind missing your hair, and it will grow so slow, you will need years to have long hair again.
If they want a change, they can try another hair color, and another style, but NEVER EVER the pixie.

jean on

I love, love, love Kristin’s new ‘do. But, I hate, hate, hate this website for putting up an ad that you can’t ‘X’ out of…grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!
