Hayden Panettiere Debuts Blunt Bangs On 'Late Show With David Letterman' (VIDEO, PHOTO)

Hayden Panettiere, is that really you?

The "Nashville" star debuted new blunt bangs and straighter and blonder locks while making an appearance on the "Late Show with David Letterman" on Wednesday in New York City.

Along with the hot new hair, the 24-year-old cutie showed off an updated daring style which featured a stained-glass print Alexander McQueen mini, bold red lips and matching ankle boots. Juliette Barnes, she is definitely not!

Missing in action on the petite actress was the so-called "engagement ring" which has been spotted on the former "Heroes" star recently. So what's the deal? Is Hayden still dating Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko or is their cute love affair over?

We don't have the answers but we're sure Hayden's significant other would love her new 'do, just as we do.

Just like any typical woman, the french fry lover took to Twitter to show off her edgier hair and wondered whether it was a good idea to go blunt.

The actress tweeted:

"My friend said to go look at myself in the mirror...guess ill hafta trust her opinion..."

Trust us, Hayden. You look gorgeous!

Are bangs the way to go?
