EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: Kellie Pickler's New Pixie Cut

First Kellie Pickler shocked fans by debuting new auburn hair at the CMA Awards, and then just a month later she was back to her signature blonde. Now the country star is giving PEOPLE readers a first look at an equally bold new do — a short crop! So what prompted Kellie to try a pixie cut? “My hair started falling out!” Pickler explains. “It was so damaged I looked like a scarecrow so I chopped it off!” During her recent USO trip to the Middle East, where she entertained and visited with troops in Iraq and Kuwait, her hair began falling out as a result of transitioning from blonde to red and back again. “I had two choices — look like a scarecrow or cut it,” she says. Though the style was dictated out of necessity, Pickler says that she’s pleased with her new look, which recalls one of her own country idols. “Having short hair makes me feel like I set my self apart [style wise] from the other women in country music,” she says. “I remember being in love with Lorrie Morgan’s hairstyles growing up. I’ve always thought she was beautiful and confident.” And what does her boyfriend, Nashville songwriter Kyle Jacobs, think? “Kyle could care less. He’d love me if I was bald, and vice-versa,” she says. “What he and I have is very special. Unconditional. God blessed me with a good man.” And now, also, a very good haircut! Tell us: What do you think of Kellie’s new cut?–Eileen Finan

Kellie is a beautiful woman. From the time she appeared on American Idol I knew she would go far. The look is great Kellie. Keep up the good work.

It looks great, but as other’s posted, it is not a pixie, it is a Bob. I have a pixie and looks nothing like that. Sure the stylists know what the’re talking about

Love it! She needs to stay with blonde and keep her hair short! Matches her personality!

I, too, would love Kelly even if she were bald. My family fell in love with her during her audition on Idol. She is one of us.

Cute cut, but this is NOT a pixie!

So cute! Love it. She’d look cute in any style.

Not exactly what a pixie cut really looks like(very short and somewhat able to spike) more like a short bob…but looks great on her!

Christina on

Looks Great!! I think she would look good no matter what haircut she had!
