Has Dannii's New 'Do Got The X Factor?

Splash News

Debuting a new short, shaggy bob in Melbourne yesterday, Dannii Minogue appears to be gearing up for a glamorous return to the X Factor judging panel.

The star - who will return to the show in a few weeks after taking time out to have her baby, Ethan – was looking quite the yummy mummy while out shopping in Melbourne with a friend.

The flattering cut and lighter chestnut shade are quite a contrast to the sleek and severe dark styles we're used to seeing on Dannii – and give her an altogether softer appearance. Perhaps, she has mellowed out with motherhood.

What do you think of the star's new cut?
