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

I couldn’t care less about Kellie Pickler. The only reason she got so far on American Idol is that she was so perky, and apparently the people like perky over talented. She has absolutely no talent. She belongs in the same category as Heidi Pratt.

Sorry guys, but that’s not a pixie cut – she’s got a bob a la V Beck’s early days when she started that trend.
Looks good on her though!

Kellie is a winner…Looks good ‘anyway’..Kyle is right..She would be beautiful even if she were bald! Your Adoring Fan, Libbyrose

This comment is for Mel …. Didn’t pass the AI auditions, is that the reason for your anger? Kellie Pickler is one of the most beautiful and talented singers to hit Nashville in a long time, reminiscent of the Loretta Lynn/Dolly Parton era.
Oh yes, the hair only adds to her already good looks.

I love Kellie’s hair it looks so good.

Karie Ann on

That is not a pixie, it is an A-line bob. Cute though!

Traci on

Kellie I love your new do. It looks great on you.

I like Kelli Pickler, but I have to disagree that this is a pixie cut. Pixie is severely short, a la Halle Berry. This is still a bob-version and versatile that when she gets sick of having short hair, she can slap on some extensions and fool the rest of us that her hair grew back so fast!

Joanne on

I love it! It’s so cute on her!
