Sometimes a girl just needs a change. This was the case for actress Amy Smart, when she decided to chop off her tumbling locks in favor of a shorter shoulder-grazing style. “I cut it off for fun…just for a change,” she told PEOPLE at Arcade Boutique’s Autumn Party for the Children’s Institute at The London West Hollywood hotel last week. “I just wanted something new and fresh and different, you know. People need changes sometimes and you just sometimes want to cut your hair off!” Known for her classic girl-next-door image, the Scrubs actress chose to show her more sultry side with a sexy, tousled look that she donned for the evening. Styled that night by celebrity hair guru, Neil Weisberg of the Neil George Salon, Smart accepted compliments on her new look throughout the night and revealed that she is happy with her new hair cut. “It’s a good change, ” she said before adding, “It grows back.” Tell us: What do you think of Amy’s new do? –Michelle Ward
