Showing off her new 'do on Twitter, Hilary explained: "New moon... new me!"
After the chop was complete, she tweeted: "A success! Thank god you guys love it makes me feel so good!"
Joining Hilary in the bangs-a-thon is Brit singer Leona Lewis, who recently went for a straight cut fringe, while Damages star Rose Byrne has been seen sporting a more 70s inspired shaggy style recently.
And with fringes seen on the spring summer runways at Christian Dior, Charles Anastase, Preen and Peter Som - no doubt we'll be seeing more celebs taking the trend-plunge once the warm weather hits.
