Michelle Williams debuts new shaved side hairstyle

There's nothing like a break-up to shake up your look. Michelle Williams recently split from boyfriend Jason Segel and decided to give herself a hair makeover to mark the occasion. The beautiful actress debuted her edgy new haircut in New York last night at the launch of the Kate Young for Target Launch held at St. Patrick's Old Cathedral.

The 32-year-old's undercut hairstyle included a sweeping side parting that pulled her blonde locks over to one side of her face. Michelle's blonde crop has become her signature look, but she recently joked that it can become "insufferable" when it's 'in between' lengths. She said that the phase can be "hard on your self-esteem."

"I'm happy to not have anything looming [work-wise]—I'm really working on growing my hair out. Michelle and Jason split in February after nearly two years together and are said to have given in to the demands of a long-distance relationship. Michelle lives in Brooklyn with her daughter Matilda, 7, while Jason is based in Los Angeles, where his sitcom How I Met Your Mother is filmed.

The A-list couple were said to be completely smitten with one another and Jason had begun to bond with Matilda, Michelle's daughter from her relationship with the late Heath Ledger. But when it came to the details of their romance, they were incredibly private.

Segel opened up slightly last year, simply saying: "I think we would just very much like to be happy. That's all I'm going to say about it."
