Going from blond to red: Hayden Panettiere did it, have you?



You know Hayden Panettiere, the blond cheerleader from Heroes? She's not blond anymore. She just changed her mop into a whole lotta auburn. See?

Right? That was my reaction, too.  I think I like it, but I'm not completely sold. Concerning the change, she said this to a reporter: “I feel like I don’t have to over compensate as much personality-wise when I have red hair as I did when I had blonde hair,” she admits. “But cute, fun, little [and blonde] it’s just so one category and one thing. It’s fun to change things up.”

I've been a lifelong blond (and yes, in the news biz we spell it without the "e") with periodic yearnings to go red. The closest I've ever gotten was in my much more misguided youth, when I filled my yellow hair with bright red chunks, a direct copy of some girl named "Rocky" on, I kid you not, Laguna Beach. Like I said, MISGUIDED.

I change the cut and style all the time, but with the color, I've mostly decided that if it ain't broke don't fix it. You know? I kind of can't imagine being any other color at this point. But I still get the red urge occasionally.

What do you think of Hayden's look? Have you ever done something so drastic? Did you ever style your hair to match a sad reality star?
