A new haircut often takes deep thought and consideration as it is quite a life-changing decision, especially for somebody.
Who spends their life in front of the camera. Which makes Hayden Panettiere's new hairstyle all the more surprising.
The Heroes actress, 20, debuted a dramatic new short cut and colour as she attended the Global Home Tree Earth Day reception hosted by Avatar director James Cameron at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
In a vast change to her usual long locks, Panettiere sported a cropped hairdo, slicked back with a quiff and sideburns.
And she'd dyed her hair a dark blonde colour, just a couple of weeks after she returned to her original blonde colouring following a foray into dark auburn that lasted several months.
