Kellie Pickler is having fun with her hair now that it’s growing back in. The “American Idol” alum shaved off her blonde locks to support her friend Summer Holt Miller after her BFF was diagnosed with breast cancer, and it has been slowly growing back out ever since.

When Pickler went on “Good Morning America” at the beginning of October, she was sporting a sleek blonde bob. Miller was by her side when Pickler performed her song “Someone Somewhere” in her friend’s honor. Though Miller stayed home when Pickler went to the CMAs, Pickler made sure her friend was there in spirit.

“She’s doing great. She’s probably watching right now,” Pickler says on the red carpet. “She’s coming up on her last chemo round and we’re going to go celebrate life and just being cancer free.”

Pickler sported a brand new hair style on the carpet, and it’s much more fun than her bob. This take on the Karlie Chop is very playful, and shows that Pickler plans to keep on growing out her hair.
