Hayden Panettiere Is Almost Unrecognizable In Her Return To Social Media

She's back and looks like a new person.

It's been a while since we've heard from Hayden Panettiere.

Ever since Nashville wrapped, the actor has been notably quiet — especially over the past 10 months.

It's been that long since Hayden was active on Twitter, but today she made her return from her social media hiatus.

"Hayden was looking for a radical change, so last night we just went for it!" her hairstylist Leonard Zagami told E! News. "It's a modern version of a classic pixie style with a little more of an edge. The color is silver, but not gray. She had previously been going with a super-sexy blonde."

Apparently Hayden has been wanting to go this short for a long time, but work was getting in the way: "The cut was a collaborative idea," her hairstylist added. "Right now she is free and said, 'Let's do it!'"
