Broadway beauty Kristin Chenoweth is known for her big voice and her long, golden locks -- so fans were shocked to see her sporting a short new 'do recently. In this online exclusive, Chenoweth tells "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" why she chopped it off.
"Women know our hair is our crown," Chenoweth says. "I've had a lot of hair extension mishaps. One went up in fire once, one crawled upon itself -- it was bonded the wrong way -- people who wear extensions know what I'm talking about."
"I had long hair, I've lived with it for a long time -- but I just thought, I've played a lot of different roles and I want to continue to keep reinventing myself," Chenoweth says.
Though she's still getting used to the new cut, Chenoweth says she's had a positive response.
"It's freeing," she says with a smile. "I don't know how long I'll keep it, but I like it."
