Amanda Seyfried celebrates charitable haircut with new portrait of Finn

Amanda Seyfried has a new bounce in her step (and hair!) after chopping off her long blond tresses. The drastic change was an act of goodwill by the actress, who donated her hair to the non-profit organization Locks of Love, which uses the locks to make wigs for children suffering from a variety of illnesses.

New haircut/old friend," wrote the actress on an Instagram picture showcasing her new 'do. The Ted 2 star called on her friend and longtime stylist Clede Tomoko to make the cut. The short-layered lob is a big change for the 29-year-old, who has rocked long hair since her breakout role in 2004’s Mean Girls.

Amanda had some company at the salon in the form of her beloved pooch Finn. The star is seldom seen without her constant companion, so it’s no surprise that he was in on the action. He even took on a starring role, modelling Amanda’s freshly cut locks in an adorable picture that was later shared on social media. “Finn is wearing my #locksforlove” wrote the star. This isn’t the first time that Finn showed off his top-model status, as he is frequently snapped posing for creative portraits, from seasonal costumes to reading his mom’s issue of Vogue.

The actress has a busy year ahead of her, with five films set to hit theatres. She’ll reunite with her Big Love husband Aaron Paul in Fathers and Daughters before travelling to Neverland with Les Misérables co-star Hugh Jackman in Pan. It was also recently announced that Amanda will star alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, Gary Oldman and Ralph Fiennes in the biopic Flying Horse, based on the life of pioneer photographer Eadweard Muybridge.
