Paradis first debuted her new short locks during a lunch date with hairstylist John Nollet in L.A. on Jan. 15. The pair looked friendly, as Paradis smiled on with her chestnut, curly 'do.

As previously reported, the dramatic makeover surfaced the same week news broke that her ex Depp had secretly gotten engaged to his "Rum Diary" costar Amber Heard, 27. Despite never marrying Depp, Paradis was not bitter about the situation. When the actor called to tell her the news, she "wished him happiness," an insider told Us of the friendly exes. "No drama." The source added: "She's happy."
