Someone’s got a new ‘do!
Leighton Meester debuted her new and shorter hairstyle when she went to the Flaunt magazine dinner at Ink restaurant in West Hollywood. The actress, 26, explained to Just Jared:
“I chopped off my hair after Gossip Girl wrapped. My long, wavy hair got a lot of mileage, so it was time for a change.”
The brunette actress trusted Lizzie Reilly, Gossip Girl’s hairstylist, to give her a new ‘do. She gushed:
“I love it! I hop out of the shower and it takes five minutes to dry!”
However, Leighton isn’t the only GG star to get a new look after their show’s last shoot in mid-October. Apparently, Penn Badgley, too, got his big, curly locks shaved for a streamlined buzz cut. Badgley spoke of the series, which will end on December 10 after six seasons:
“It’ll be bittersweet. I’m sure we all want to go on to. . . not bigger things, but different things. It will be a complicated feeling of ambivalence.”
