After being silent on social media since February 2019, Hayden Panettiere returned with a photo showing her new transformation.

The Nashville star posted a photo of her newly shorn hair. The image shows the sides of Hayden’s head shaved, while the top is long and brushed back. Even the color has changed.

Channeling my inner #Kirby #Scream4 Thanks to my boys ⁦@anthonyleonard,” she wrote in the post. 

Hayden’s hairstylist Leonard Zagami spoke with E! News about the cut. “Hayden was looking for a radical change, so last night we just went for it! It’s a modern version of a classic pixie style with a little more of an edge,” Leonard said. “The color is silver, but not grey. She had previously been going with a super sexy blonde. The cut was a collaborative idea. She has wanted to go short for a while but she has always had a commitment with her work and wasn’t able to. Right now, she is free and said, let’s do it!”

The 30-year-old actress has been quiet while dealing with the ups and downs of her relationship with ex-boyfriend Brian Hickerson. After she split from her fiancé and father of her daughter Kaya, Wladimir Klitschko, Hayden began a tumultuous relationship with Hickerson. Brian was arrested for domestic violence after getting into an argument with Hayden, which allegedly turned into a physical altercation. The couple had been out drinking.

In September, news broke that the charges against Hickerson, including the restraining order against him, had been dismissed in a Los Angeles court on Sept. 26.

According to reports, Panettiere and Hickerson have since reconciled. “What a great Thanksgiving weekend with some good people. #thanksgiving,” he posted in November, sharing photos celebrating the holiday with Panettiere.
