'Top Model'

SHAVES HEAD

For Court Showdown After Burglary Arrest

Exclusive Details

072513_renee_alway_launch_v2
Troubled "America's Next Top Model" alum Renee Alway SHAVED OFF HER HAIR before facing the judge in her burglary case -- in an effort to convince the judge she's a changed woman.

Alway -- who placed 3rd on ANTM during Season 8 -- appeared in a Palm Springs courtroom Thursday stemming from a 6-hour armed standoff with police last month.

Nothing really happened during the hearing ... except for the debut of Alway's new haircut.

So, why the extreme new 'do? Alway's sister tells TMZ ... the former model wants to "start over" and believes the first step is a radical new look ... hence the buzz job.

Plus, we're told ... Alway hated the way her hair looked in her mug shot, which probably made it easier to part ways with her mane.

FYI -- Alway's been arrested at least 4 times this year ... so, if she REALLY wants to fix her life, it's gonna take more than a haircut.

She's due back in court in August.

A change in a appearance might seem contrived. But, it can be the first step to a change in attitude. After all, it's worked for the Army these past 100 years. If you see yourself differently in the mirror, you can see the world differently, also.

It's a fresh start...as if. I don't know anything about her, but that mug shot is a drug test just waiting to fail.

Or. Maybe she didn't want her hair used for a drug test.

seems like almost everyone that was on that show turned out screwed up...........
these shows should also have follow up help for contestants on life after the show... i don't think people understand how to deal with the exposure after living normal lives.......sucks...........

Maybe the justice system should learn a lesson from Amanda Bynes and do a psychiatric evalutation of her.
If the judge could miss Amanda Bynes' condition in her last court appearance then they are not terribly discerning. Proactive is the way to go. Lingering is far more costly.
