Avril Lavigne has always been willing to take risks both with her music and her style. Her latest haircut makes us think her new album may have some dubstep influences: She's rocking a Skrillex 'do!

Perhaps taking a cue from fellow pop rocker Kesha, Avril hit the Paris nightclub scene with one side of her head shaved. The rest of her hair is back to something close to its natural honey blonde hue, which we have to say is a pretty refreshing change from the horrific black bangs she sported recently. She looks more like the genuine punk rocker she's always claimed to be, accentuating her hair's attitude with a black leather jacket and black and white striped tee.

While her hair was dramatic, her makeup was understated. Lavigne had on a subtle, smudgy smoky eye with the rest of her face pretty naked. But we bet her nails were bright and fun!

Av's currently hard at work on the followup to 'Goodbye Lullaby,' hitting the studio with Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. Keepin' it in the Canadian family!
