Hayden Panettiere short hair2 What happened to Hayden Panettiere's hair?!?!?!No more long luscious locks for the “Heroes” star.

Hayden Panettiere has made a departure from just changing up her hair color and gone all-the-way with a dramatic super-cropped ‘do. She sported the more — er, sophisticated — hairstyle at an Earth Day celebration Thursday (April 22) in Los Angeles.

]]>blonde hair makes her look “cute” (not a good thing in Panettiere’s book, apparently?), hence the switch to red back in January. But it seems she’s back to blonde(ish) … but a lot less of it. Perhaps the lopped locks are an attempt for an older, less “cute,” look as well?

What’s YOUR opinion? Did she accomplish her not-so-cute goal? And is that necessarily a good thing?
