There’s short hair the way asstalky Heigl does it, and then there’s short hair on Evan Rachel Wood. Sometimes it’s just a haircut. Sometimes a haircut can be transformational. ERW’s haircut wasn’t just an aesthetic change, it seemed like it was a whole personality shift.
No more Manson, no more doppelganging on Von Teese, no more fronting like it’s been a long, dark, 35 year old life. It was replaced by a fresh Evan Rachel Wood looking and behaving her age - fun, silly, and enthusiastic.
All of that attributable to a haircut? Obviously a stretch. Can we call the haircut a reflection though?
