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

yeah..its cute but it is not a pixie cut. People should really have someone who knows that wrtie the story! This is more of a graduated bob. Pixie is more like Alyssa Milano or Jamie Lee Curtis. (sorry, as someone in the “hair biz” AND someone with a true pixie it bothered me lol)

Liza on

That is not a pixie cut. See Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s baby. The style is cute on her, pixie or not.

Very cute! She looks good in short hair! But…somebody needs to figure out what a “pixie cut” is..because this is NOT a Pixie cut.

I love it! It is so cute, but chic, too! What a great style!!

Who’s her stylist? Hair should NOT fall out just because of a few colour changes. Sure, it will be brittle and “scarecrow-ish”…but fall out?? No.

I’ve been a fan of Lorrie Morgan’s for YEARS and every time I see Kellie she reminds me of her! In fact Lorrie did an autobiography years ago and I keep saying that if anyone should play Lorrie it should be Kellie! Hairstyle looks great on her!

Sorry meant to say if anyone should play Lorrie if they make the book a movie, it should be Kellie! And very true, it’s a bob, not a pixie, pixie is short all over…love it though! Not too many people can pull off the short hair styles and whether she’s a blonde, brunette or red head, Kellie makes it all look good! Lookin Good Kel!
