He spoke to US Weekly and said:
"Hanousek and Chenoweth have been working together for years, he tells Us Weekly. The haircut "was inspired by her next film with Jennifer Lopez "The Boy Next Door" but it's been a long time coming.
"KC and I have been talking about doing something like this for years," Hanousek tells Us of the Broadway vet, 45. "I think that having this film come up gave her the freedom to just go for it."
And stick with it, too. "She is in love with her new haircut!" the West Hollywood-based stylist raves. "I'm sure that we will maintain it for some time.""
By the way, shooting for The Boy Next Door is scheduled to start in Monday and with some luck we'll get some production shots along the way!
The first time you can check out the new haircut in action is tonight! NBC is airing the Breeders Cup Classic at 8pm ET, and Kristin will sing the Breeders Cup anthem "The Best is Yet to Come" before the start fo the race. So tune in or set your DVRs!
