Not only has Mena Suvari been busy filming the movie Garden of Eden — for which she shaved her head — but the actress has also been designing a scarf line. “I’ve always been into fashion and I wanted to design something to give to charity,” Mena told PEOPLE at the unveiling of her ECHO scarf line at Bloomingdales in Manhattan. Having worked with the National Resources Defense Council before, Mena knew she wanted to design something to do with nature to help the group. “When I was working in Vancouver the cherry trees bloomed, and I sent my photos and designs in from there,” says the actress of the inspiration behind her scarf line. And when PEOPLE caught up with the actress admiring someone else’s designs at the Y-3 show, The American Beauty actress told PEOPLE that chopping off her shoulder length locks “wasn’t scary.” In fact, the actress says she still feels just as sexy. “I’ve actually gotten a ton of compliments on it.” Check at Mena’s scarf lines at a Bloomingdales near you and see the buzz cut beauty on the big screen in 2008.

I actually love short hair not sure i would ever go as short as a buzz, but she does look so adorable in it. I’m told as i approach 40 when my hair is long i look it but cutting it to neck length took off 10 yrs. I feel it to.

I love Mena, I think she looks amazing with that haircut and I admire her not only for committing to that look for a movie but also for following her passion for design.

isn’t that the haircut they give you just before you get the Electric Chair ?
