On Dec.10, the Nashville star tweeted out a photo of her silver pixie, including a shaved portion on the side of her head. Her new look channels her character Kirby's super short hair from 2011's Scream 4, and is a huge shift from her signature long, blonde hair. Almost 2,000 Costumes from Nashville Are Up for Grabs and They Start at $45 “Channeling my inner #Kirby#Scream4,” the actress wrote in the caption, confirming the inspiration for her cut. “Thanks to my boys @anthonyleonard ❤” Panettiere's stylist Leonard Zagami spoke with E! News about the transformation, saying the actress was ready for a "radical change." “It’s a modern version of a classic pixie style with a little more of an edge,” he said. “The color is silver, but not gray. She had previously been going with a super sexy blonde.” According to the stylist, 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," Zagami said. "Right now, she is free and said, 'let’s do it!'” Panettiere might be bringing a little bit of this decade into 2020 with her throwback haircut, but we're hoping her new look marks the beginning of 10 years of amazing hairstyles.
