Watch: Ashley Tisdale Shares Hair Loss Struggle From Alopecia

Ashley Tisdale is living the suite life with her new look. 

The High School Musical alum announced she's officially in her "French girl era" after she debuted chic curtain bangs on Instagram. In a June 6 post, Ashley showed off her stunning 'do, in which her wispy, eye-grazing bangs were tousled and textured. Her face-framing side pieces blended seamlessly into her beachy waves.

After the Suite Life of Zack & Cody star unveiled her transformation, it didn't take long for her followers to celebrate her bangin' hairstyle. The Suite Life on Deck alum Debby Ryan replied, "Oui," while Shadowhunter's Katherine McNamara wrote, "Love it!"

Ashley's fresh cut, courtesy of hairstylist Vernon (Buddy) William Porter, is not only a quintessential summertime look but perfectly coordinates with the name of her brand Being Frenshe and her married last name. After all, her husband of nine years is Christopher French. As one of her fans commented, "As a French person I really thought she was a French girl."

In the last few months, Ashley has been candid about her hair journey and her decade-long struggle with Alopecia.

"Any type of hair loss can affect your self-esteem," she shared in a Jan. 11 Instagram, "especially if you feel like you're the only one going through it. That's why I want to talk about it openly—because it's nothing to be ashamed of."


In March, the 37-year-old explained why it felt like the right time to share her story with the world.

"I always want to make someone feel less alone in their journey," she exclusively told E! News at the time. "So it's just nice to share these things. And that's what I love to do with social media."

Ashley noted that the responses she received about her Alopecia diagnosis were supportive, which made it all the more special. "It's allowed me to be vulnerable," she added. "And it's something that no one's known about. So I loved being able to be open about it."
