It seems the ‘in thing’ to do when celebs split from their loved ones it to cut their flowing tresses.

Abbie Cornish went shorter after breaking up with Ryan Phillippe. Now Jennifer Love Hewitt has followed in her footsteps after breaking up with Jamie Kennedy.

She showed off the shorter, curlier do at the “Esprit Flagship Store Opening” in New York last night.

I must say I love the shorter style.  It makes her look younger and brightens up her face.  Or maybe she just happy to be single again.

Her sexy look included 3.1 Phillip Lim sequined silk wrap dress, and gold YSL heels.

I think this might be the first time that I actually love what Jennifer is wearing.

I wonder if Kate Winslet will follow the trend and go for the chop.
