Aoi Yuu cuts her hair short to drive herself forward


On September 14th, it was revealed that actress Aoi Yuu has exchanged her trademark long hair with a fresh new short hairdo.

Aoi will be showing off her new hairstyle and explaining the reason for the bold change in the upcoming November issue of the fashion magazine 'mina' (release: September 20th). It's the second time for her to grace the cover of said magazine since June 2010.

In a few short excerpts from the magazine's interview, she explained, "Something about long hair feels like you're deceiving others. All this time it helped to gloss over my great number of faults and I felt like it's time to stop escaping, and face them."

Of course it wasn't an easy decision for her, since she has been sporting that long black hair ever since her debut and has grown quite fond of it over the years. She tried to look at it from a different perspective and said, "By cutting my hair I want to drive my self forward even further."

Furthermore, Aoi explained that this change has something do with how she felt at the age of 23. She revealed, "Back then I actually wanted to quit my job." Like many actresses her age, she has been in the business since a very young age. At the said age she could no longer stand her own matter-of-fact attitude towards works anymore. That's the reason why the now 27 year-old Aoi has finally decided to work on removing the layers of armor she accumulated ever since she entered the industry.

She expressed, "Cutting my hair was the first step forward."

Aoi can currently be seen the popular movie 'Rurouni Kenshin' and will also star in Iwai Shunji's upcoming English movie 'Vampire' (release: September 15th). Moreover she will appear in Yamada Youji's new movie 'Tokyo Kazoku' early next year.
