Patton told Hoda Kotb that the decision to cut her hair was really a "Joan of Arc moment."

"Sometimes they say if a girl changes her hair, she's changing her life. Did that happen?" Hoda asked.

Patton brought her new boyfriend with her to the studio, and beamed as she answered Hoda's question.

"There’s something to be said for that," said Patton. "Because you know what? You cut off that energy."

The actress explained that she's now in love for the first time since her 2014 divorce from Robin Thicke, who she was married to for nine years.

Sometimes a new look can mean so much!
