As this drastic move fueled speculations, the seasoned young actress clarified in an interview on Tonight With Boy Abunda that her new look was just for her kontrabida role in the Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Araw Gabi, wherein she played Amber Distrito.

Jessy Mendiola had a pixie to fit her lifestyle.
The same goes for Jessy, who, from having a long crowning glory, further cut her hair short and had it in ash blonde in 2019. Amazingly, it suited her so well and even earned “likes” praises from her fellow celebs and other followers.
In a vlog she uploaded on her YouTube channel that year, she revealed that the reason behind it was simply because of her lifestyle.
“Mahilig ako mag-scuba dive, mahilig sa beach, mahilig aboard. ‘Yan ginagawa naming mga scuba divers,” she started off her explanation. “Nasa boat ka lang nakatira and siyempre prone to damage ang hair kasi dive ka ngayon tapos wash ka ulit, tapos salt water na naman. Kumbaga madra-dry talaga ang hair mo. So, ang ginawa ko nagpagupit talaga ako ng super igsi kasi ayaw ko nang ma-bother sa kung ano pa gagawin ko sa hair ko," she said.
Jodi Sta. Maria had cut her hair short for teleseryes.
Just when you thought that her blunt bob hair as Jill in the recently-concluded The Broken Marriage Vow was the shortest she’s ever worn, well, you’re definitely wrong. In both her stints in the original and incarnation of the classic soap opera Pangako Sa ‘Yo in 2000 and 2015, Jodi had short hair. She sported a bob cut as Lia in the original, while a chic pixie as the new Amor Powers in the remake. The award-winning actress kept her hair short in 2016 and went blonde for the very first time.
Angelica Panganiban looked extra fabulous in a pixie.
It was also in the 2015 remake of Pangako Sa ‘Yo when Angelica shocked audiences with her new look as the bolder and meaner Madam Claudia Buenavista.

Angel Locsin’s hair is as versatile as her acting prowess.
In her two decades in the local entertainment scene, we’ve witnessed Angel’s versatility onscreen as an actress and host. At the same time, we have also seen how her crowning glory has changed in length, color, and style during those years. As Angel wears her hair long in the recent years, her photos strutting in a pixie cut in 2017 arguably still live in our heads rent-free.
Kaye Abad had an extreme hair makeover by cutting it short.
It was also in 2017 when Kaye underwent an extreme hair makeover by having her long locks be chopped by her most trusted hairstylist. While any style definitely suits her, we can all agree that the pixie cut made her look younger and more beautiful.
Sarah Geronimo traded her flowy beautiful hair to a cropped ‘do.
As a long-time endorser of a popular hair care product, Sarah had to maintain her shiny, long tress. But in the recent years, she did a bold move by cutting her hair short! And in 2021, she surprised her fans when she exhibited her cropped ‘do, which, according to her stylist, was “enhanced with a cool brown all over colour”. The ravishing new look of the Popstar Royalty indeed raked in thousands of “likes” and positive comments from her colleagues and followers.
KZ Tandingan has been rocking short hair for years now.
Along with her music, KZ has also gone adventurous when it comes to her hair and style. From long and colorful to curly and short, we can say that the Asia’s Soul Supreme has already tried everything and amazingly looked gorgeous in any.
Regine Velasquez-Alcasid is an avid fan of short hair.
Those who have been following the Asia’s Songbird in the past four decades would know that she used to wear pixie in the early years of her career. And Regine seemingly missed having it as she revived it in mid-2010s, but more modern and edgier!
Janice de Belen has been wearing her hair short.
Unlike Regine, Janice usually had long hair in her early years in the industry. But in the recent years, it’s noticeable how the Love In 40 Days actress has kept her hair cropped. She even had it dyed in bright neon pink or multicolor, which really wowed us.
While there’s no significant meaning behind it, she told the King of Talk in her 2016 Tonight With Boy Abunda interview that she did it as her way of celebrating her birthday that year. As Tito Boy praised her new look, she stated, “I believe, Tito Boy, that if you’re going to cut your hair, color your hair, [or] grow your hair, dapat kaya mong dalhin. Dapat buo ang loob mo. ‘Yon ang nakakaganda – ‘yong buo ang loob mo.”

Just like Janice, Amy has also been wearing a cropped ‘do for years now. And it absolutely suits the outgoing and bubbly personality of the It’s Showtime host since it’s lightweight and easy to fix.
