Evan Rachel Wood Chops Her Locks

Evan Rachel Wood cuts her hair

Short story: Evan Rachel Wood chopped her hair! The actress showed up to the Hollywood premiere of True Blood Tuesday night sporting a modern blonde pixie cut. Wood, who most recently dated Marilyn Manson, accentuated her androgynous new look with a chic gray vest and form-fitting pants accessorized with red suspenders. Want to style your hair similarly? Hair guru Mara Roszak, who coiffed Wood for the event, says to apply Volumactive spray all over the roots of wet hair. Next, blow dry in different directions, off the face, then take a dime-size amount of hard wax, rubbing it between your hands and spreading it through the hair with your fingertips from the back forward. Lay the sides of the hair flat and mess up the top, adding more wax as needed. Twist random pieces, then spray all over with René Furterer hairspray. Wood, a self-proclaimed “free spirit” is no stranger to hair experimentation: she’s been ginger-hued, dark and mysterious and most recently, honey-blonde (though always long). She likes to get people talking, too; when she revealed her bisexuality in April, Wood told Esquire that she thought she was “a little controversial. I just try and keep some mystery, so hopefully people can’t really put their finger on it.” Tell us: What do you think of Wood’s new haircut? –Kim Peiffer

Sandy on

I wouldn’t have the balls to try a cut like that, but it looks stunning on her!!! I’ve been a fan of hers since ‘Once and Again’!!! She looks awesome!

Short Haired And Rockin It on

Beautiful!!! Love when a woman can rock the short cut. It takes a bold woman to really show off the true beauty of the face. Long hair does not make you beautiful ladies!!

Di L. on

I think it’s cute. Gutsy move from long hair to this short for sure! Short hair has so much more personality. Long hair is boring and over rated.

retromama on

She’s a beautiful girl – She’s got the perfect face to rock that haircut!

Lauren on

I agree Sandy! but love it on her!

Amy E on

I really like that on her

Mel on

She is stunning..

round raven on

Too pretty for Manson. Hope she finds a good match.

Ryry on

NOW she looks interesting. Much better look!

Lisa on

Wow, she really looks amazing! I’ve never really seen her as androgynous just very unique looking. Loves it!

Sandra on

Wow, that was a real brave move to cut that much off of her hair! She looks fantastic! She is such a beautiful woman. So hard to believe she would have anything to do with that creepy looking Marilyn Manson. Way too beautiful for him! She looks like a model.

Sherry on

Love it!!! She is one of my all time favorites and she looks awesome.

Natalie on

it looks amazing on her!!

Amy on

She has the perfect facial shape for a cut like that. She looks beautiful.

Magnolia on

Finally, a woman who doesn’t want to have a Barbie doll hairstyle! The Kardashian sisters, most actresses, and Kate Middleton should take note and stop trying so hard to look like Barbies, especially in a world where very few men look like Ken.

jordan on

Just because you like to have long hair it doesn’t mean you’re a barbie. I love having long hair and I’m no Barbie. You have tons more options to do with long hair than short.

Cathy on

I love it and it does set her apart from the typical Hollywood actress. Her look was dullsville before, but her hair now matches her edgy attitude. My hair stylist said short hair is making a comeback in a big way!!

Angie on

She looks like the wife from Pet Semetary.

Patrick Star on

WoW!!! Gorgeous! Makes me want to change my hair color…! LoL!!

Kelly on

love, love, love it! was just about to go really blond, but loving the cut and colour! she stands out more now like she deserves!

lisa on

I want to see the variation of the style. She has it coiffed on top of her head. No way is it meant to look like that every day.

Judi on

Looks awesome on her. I used to wear my hair short and spiked. I have had a modern BOB now for a few years and love it. I won’t wear severe short hair anymore but I do think it is cute on her

stef on

Oh boy…this cut is like a cross between John Taylor from ‘Duran Duran’ (his hair in the 80’s) and the group A Flock of Seagulls! I know, I know…here’s where I get slammed for being mean, etc! I just dont’ care for it. She’s a gorgeous girl. But in the end, as long as she likes it, that is what matters!

Jess on

She looks gorgeous – I love it!

Amy on

I just cut my hair off this weekend, I need to follow those styling instructions and see what it looks like when am done.

Mia on

She looks gorgeous, I love it!

Lila on

She looks great! So much better than her lackluster long hair. Don’t get me wrong, I normally love long hair but it didn’t flatter her.

Cuddy on

You work it girl!!!!!!!

Natasha on

LOVE this hairstyle. With it getting hot, makes me want to chop all mine off again!

I like her on True Blood, but I do wish she would stop trying to be controversial. It is not really something you should TRY to do. You either are or you aren’t. Anything more looks like posing.

She is a cool girl and decent actress. She should rely on that. Not trying to Marilyn Manson just to be “weird”.

Natasha on

* sorry. I meant MARRY Marilyn Manson..

Jax on

love her hair, definately a future haircut possibility– we’ll see!

NickyAngel on

OMG she looks hot with the new hairstyle. Beautiful :-)

WHY!!! Her hair was so pretty before! I’m not saying it looks bad but she looked far better with long hair. She’s still pretty though! Man, that is a DRASTIC change!
