The tail-end of 2013 saw a lot of female celebrities chopping off their long locks to sport a refreshing bob haircut.
This year, Kapatid star Nadine Samonte is the first to join the style bandwagon that is reminiscent of the early '90s.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) editorial assistant Nikko Tuazon, Nadine said that this new look has nothing to do with her role in the upcoming TV5 show One of the Boys.
"Wala naman," the actress explained at the story conference for the show, held January 7.
"Sabi ko lang, 'New Year, new look,' gano'n.
"It’s just that, siguro sa tagal ko sa showbiz, never pa akong nag-short hair, so sabi ko para maiba naman."
Indeed, Nadine had always worn her hair long, almost to her waist.

How did her non-showbiz boyfriend react to her new hairstyle?
"He likes it. He likes it shorter pa nga, e.
"I wanted to cut it like a boy’s cut, iyong pixie cut, pero sabi ng mom ko huwag muna kasi baka wala akong makuhang role pag ganoon ka-short."
