Mandy Moore on Cutting Her Hair For How to Deal
Shortly after A Walk To Remember came How To Deal in 2003. It brought another memorable hair moment for Moore: her first pixie cut. "It was a really big point in the script that my character cut her hair and I was really excited," said Moore. "I'd never had short hair that length before and I loved it."
She kept that haircut, along with the brunette color that she picked up playing Jamie, as her look for years even after the movie wrapped. "I felt less encumbered, just a little freer, a little lighter," said Moore. "I was just turning 18 when I was making that movie and it felt like the perfect time in my life to embrace having a fun, super-short haircut."
