It鈥檚 almost the new year, which means it鈥檚 resolution time! Some standards are things like聽vowing to eat healthier, doing something creative, exercising more and spending more time with loved ones. But it鈥檚 also nice to kick off聽2016聽with a聽new look as a reminder of聽what a new year represents.聽Hayden Panettiere聽recently went to the salon and got a chop, and it鈥檚 the ultimate homage to auld lang syne.

Hayden hair

The Nashville actress recently posted a Twitter pic of her new shoulder-length lob聽with the caption, 鈥淐hopping hair off is like getting rid of metaphorical and literal dead ends. Off with the old and growing the new.鈥 Hayden鈥檚 blonde locks are kind of a red carpet staple, so this short, textured style is definitely a change. She paired the cut with an adorable brown-and-black hat and striped sweater, creating an effortless, low-key look. And she looks AMAZE.

Her effort to usher in new beginnings is particularly significant because this pic of her new coif is one of the first tweets she鈥檚 posted since October, when she chose聽to undergo treatment for postpartum depression. YAAAS, Hayden! The actress聽and her fianc茅 Wladimir Klitschko welcomed their baby girl, Kaya Evdokia Klitschko last December. A few days before her haircut photo, Hayden retweeted a #GivingTuesday message from Discover the Glow, which offers prenatal and postpartum support services.

Cheers, Hayden! We hope your聽new look聽brings you the new beginnings you鈥檙e seeking. It safe to say it鈥檚 certainly inspiring us聽to go do the same.
