Now that her Disney Channel show has come to an end, Adrienne Bailon is waving goodbye to her Cheetah Girls do and reinventing her look. Last week the star got stylish, debuting an edgier cut with blunt bangs that was a welcome change from the softer look she rocked as a member of the girl group, “There was a certain look we were going for,” she told at KIIS-FM’s Wango Tango in Irvine, Calif. “We had to look like our characters. Now that I can be me, it’s so liberating. I can do whatever I want.” So what was her style inspiration? “I wanted to look like the Versace ad where the girls had these blunt-cut bangs,” Adrienne says. “Honestly, [I did it out of] boredom!” Tell us: What do you think of Adrienne’s new do? –reporting by Nicholas White

She looks like she’s trying to substitute personality with hair. Taking your career in a new direction requires substantive change and can’t be accomplished with a trip to your stylist. She looks uncomfortable, like she knows she’s wearing someone else’s hair.

Someone is trying to fit in with the Kardashians a little too much!

Andrea on

Very cute and grown up. The old look was more “classic” pretty, the new look is more trendy, in style pretty.

I’m a big fan of her curls and the hair off her face. Not a fan of the bangs, but it’s not horrible…seems to be the look that everyone is trying now.

carol on

She looks like the rest of the Kardashians!

Yeah, ummmm… how weird is it for her boyfriend to be sleeping with a doppelganger of his sister?? Too close for comfort right there…

Karen on

She wants to look like Kim

Korey on

I seriously thought it was Kim Kardashian at first glance. Yeah….I agree with Carolina….that’s a bit too close for comfort for Robert Kardashian

Amy on

Very pretty girl, but the hair looks like a wig.

Suzi on

I agree, not a bad haircut, but a whole lot too much like Kim.

Leigh on

Those bangs and hair look like a cheap wig.

Karin on

Cuter before the cut. MUCH cuter!

Katy on

She is a wannabe Kim Kardashian for sure. Just look at her. She’s lame. She never liked Rob for one minute. She’s in love with his sisters!! This girl is nothing but trash!!!!!!!
