During a live Catching Fire chat today on Google Hangout, Jennifer Lawrence debuted a new pixie cut hair style.

The short hair appears to also be back to her natural blonde color or at least close to it. Asked why she made the change, she said jokingly, “I did it just to make Francis mad,” referring to the Catching Fire and Mockingjay director. Then in a more serious tone she said that her hair had been fried from dying it to Katniss’ color and needed to start fresh. She also said it was at an awkward length prior to being cut.

Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2 have been shooting over the past month in Georgia and is expected to continue once the cast finishes promoting Catching Fire later this month, so obviously Lawrence will have to sport a wig for the remainder of filming.

See three photos of the new hair style today. The first two are from the actress’ official Facebook page while the third is a screen capture from her Google Hangout:

Lawrence follows in the footsteps of actress Emma Watson who cut a pixie hair cut two years ago. She’s since grown it out. Lawrence is a huge Harry Potter fan, so maybe she felt inspired by Watson.

Notably, during the Hangout today Josh Hutcherson was seen without his Peeta-blonde hair. He probably removed the color before Catching Fire publicity began.

What do you think of Jennifer’s pixie cut?
