Ivana Alawi surprised her fans on Wednesday, October 13, after she posted a photo of herself sporting short hair.
"Not a prank," the actress-vlogger said of her fresh look, which earned positive feedback from her followers, with many of them saying the hairstyle suits her.
"Looks sooo good," wrote Miss Philippines Hispanoamericana 2021 Emmanuelle Vera.
Actress Loisa Andalio left three heart-eyes emojis, while celebrity hairstylist Renz Pangilinan wrote: "LOVEEEEE!!!"
In her latest vlog, Ivana explained why she decided to get a haircut.
"First time kong magmamaiksing hair. Wala lang, gusto ko lang ng something different. Hindi naman ako brokenhearted or what. Pero idol ko si Lisa (Manoban of BLACKPINK) kaya gagayahin ko 'yung short hair niya. Ang ganda," she said.
Aside from getting a haircut, Ivana also had her hair dyed in black.

This isn't the first time that Ivana sported a short hairstyle.
In December 2020, the actress, who has been sporting long locks since she rose to fame in 2018, also surprised her fans when she wore short hair in a pictorial for a jewelry brand she endorses. However, it turned out that she was only wearing a wig.
Recently, Ivana made headlines after admitting that she has been exchanging messages with actor Joshua Garcia, her showbiz crush, via direct message on Instagram.
"Ano lang, friends," said Ivana. "[Pero hindi niya alam number ko]. Hindi pa naman kami ganung level."
When asked about the possibility that Joshua would court her in the future, the actress said: “Ay itanong nyo na lang siya. Bakit ako? Gusto ko kasing makilala muna siya bago ko kurutin 'yung sarili ko."
Her admission came just days after she and hunky actor Marco Gumabao were spotted getting cozy at a recent karaoke session with their friends.
In a virtual press conference for his new series Di Na Muli, Marco refused to address rumors romantically linking him to Ivana, but did say that right now, "I am inspired."
