It was a bumpy year for Hayden Panettiere. In May, her boyfriend at the time, Brian Hickerson, was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence and a judge issued a protective order keeping him at least 100 yards away from the actress. She then broke up with him. It makes sense that she's chosen to stay off social media for a while, ten months in fact, but this week, that all changed, and that's not the only thing that changed - the 30-year-old actress looks very different.
Hayden shared a selfie where she looks gorgeous with a brand new hairdo. Her locks are much shorter and they are shaved on one side. They're also silver.
Panettiere captioned the pic "Channeling my inner #Kirby #Scream4," a reference to the character she played in 2011's Scream 4.
Before the tweet, the last thing Hayden had put up was a photo from a Duke basketball game in February.
Meanwhile, the case and protective order against Hickerson were both dismissed in September since the LA district attorney could not secure a material witness.
