MANILA, Philippines - Months after her breakup with actor John Prats, beauty queen turned actress Bianca Manalo is now sporting a new look.

Manalo, who's gearing up for her newest project, decided to have blonde short hair.

The actress said her project will not only be launched here but abroad.

"Yes not only in the Philippines, ako na din ang magiging image nila sa Thailand. So very thankful ako," Manalo told ABS-CBN News.

Manalo said that part of the project is to cut her long straight hair.

"Goodbye sa aking long hair pero new look so siguro parang new me, the new Bianca," says Manalo.

"It's a new me, iba talaga, something fresh and something new."

She stressed that her decision to cut her hair doesn't have anything to do with her failed relationship with Prats.

"Hindi naman. Siguro ngayon gusto ko lang yung bago lang at gusto ko lang mag-explore," she said.

Asked to describe her self with her new look, Manalo replied: "Happy, contented and strong."
