Katrina Halili emerged afresh with a short new bob in the aftermath of her Hayden Cam sex video scandal. With her new swingy hairstyle barely grazing her chin and nape, Halili looked more chic gamine than sexpot, her previous persona.
Showbiz followers will remember Gretchen Barretto to have made a similar beauty statement right after her "Kisscandal" with John Estrada in 2007.
After the scandalous photo showing the two kissing on a couch during a party at Rufa Mae Quinto's house was circulated in June 2007, Pep.ph ran a story on July 27, 2007 with a photo revealing a newly bob-bed Barretto attending talent manager Douglas Quijano's birthday party.
What is it about being caught in such shocking controversy that propels stars like Halili and Barretto to "Chop it all off!"
