Newly single Jennifer Love Hewitt ditched her bob for longer hair extensions while shopping in Beverly Hills Tuesday afternoon.
The actress, 31, chopped off her hair last month after announcing her split from boyfriend (and Ghost Whisperer costar) Jamie Kennedy.
Of her short, bouncy curls, Hewitt told UsMagazine.com, “I needed to feel lighter! We just finished season five of [Ghost Whisperer], and I was just ready for a change.”
She denied it was a post-breakup ‘do.
“I actually cut my hair before,” she told Us. “It’s just that I had to have long hair on the show, so I’d already done the haircut and we were just clipping in some pieces to keep it going. I just happened to finish filming and unveiled the haircut around the same time as the unveiling of the other news so now it’s become my ‘breakup haircut.’”
So how is she coping with the split?
“Yoga, 72 hours of ice cream … it’s all good!” she joked to Us. She’s also “trying to follow” the advice of her new book, The Day I Shot Cupid.
What do you think of her new look?
