They say that less is more, and that’s definitely true for these lovely ladies who hit up the 2012 Emmys red carpet with short haircuts! Girls star Lena Dunham made her first big Hollywood event appearance since “Miley-ing” her hair a few weeks back, and just like Ms. Cyrus she looks ahhhh-mazing! We’re especially diggin’ the smokey eyes makeup. Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss also showed off her newly short ‘n’ blonde ‘do, while Julianne Hough had us fooled by pinning her long tresses in a cute 1920s flapper fringe. Ginnifer Goodwin loked adorable as ever with her trademark pixie, so there’s no surprise there. And then there’s Jeremy Davies, who apparently got into a fight with some hedge clipper wielding dude. Or maybe he just got run over by a lawn mower. In any event, it’s a dramatic look, similar to the hairstyle we rocked when we were three and cut our own hair. Get a closer look in the gallery below! And then cast your vote in our poll for who had the best short ‘do.

“Guess what’s back, back, back, back again….. BANGS are back, back, back tell your friends,” Demi Lovato announced on her Twitter last night, along with the above pic of her blonder-than-ever tresses with gorgeous long bangs. As much as we admire Demi’s flawless forehead (seriously, we covet this girl’s skin!), the new ‘do brings out her eyes perfectly. And this pic reminded us of another brunette-turned-blond beauty who recently showed off her fringe, Paris Jackson. The gorgeous 14-year-old posted Instagram pics of herself getting a cut and color just last month at the Nick Chavez Salon. Again, the bangs accentuate Paris’ stunning eyes.
Now, we’re not saying this is a ‘do for everyone — and we’d like to make a public service announcement to remind the world what a pain in the ass it is to grow your bangs out when you want to switch back — but these two ladies are seriously making us want to embrace the cut once more. (OK, my own pixie cut is going to make this a longer-term challenge, but it might be worth it.) How about you?

The star who did this is one of our favorites and we know she definitely didn’t do this because she was inspired by Avril Lavigne‘s hairy misadventures. It was for far sadder reasons. So who is this experimental celebrity and what’s the story behind this chop job? Click after the jump to find out. Read more…
So things are going pretty well for Lena Dunham, si? Her show Girls scored five Emmy noms, including one for Lead Actress for Lena. So, big check to the professional life. The personal life’s going pretty damn well too since she’s dating Fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff. It’s basically hipster heaven even though “they’re trying to keep it a secret,” says a source. So she’s feeling happy and confident and all la-la-la with the world — what better time is there than now to experiment with her look? That’s exactly what Lena did on Saturday when she tweeted a photograph — see on the right — of her newly-boyish ‘do, writing, “I Miley’d the sh– out of this Saturday.” She’s referring to Miley’s dramatic new haircut, obvs. She told Fashionista about what inspired the cut, while checking out Rachel Antonoff’s spring presentation at New York Fashion Week, where the picture on the left was taken. She revealed, “I did it this morning! I finished shooting, and I just had this moment where I thought that I could be … You know you always sort of dream you could be that girl who makes that radical choice, and [then you] look at your reflection on the subway and be like, ‘I kind of look like a boy. Whatever, it’s cool.’ So, I am embarrassed to say because it sounds so trite, but I looked at a picture of Carey Mulligan and then just went for it, but no one is doing it better than her so why not?”

We never thought about this before, but showing up to the same party wearing the same hair has GOT to be more embarrassing than showing up with the same dress, right? And here’s the thing: Pink has been rocking the pompadour for a while now, so Miley Cyrus must have known she’d look like that tonight too, right? So as much as we’ve been huge fans of Miley’s new haircut and color, we’re thinking she probably should have thought twice before styling it like this for a show in which she’s going to be presenting Pink’s performance. Or maybe not. Maybe she’s just fierce enough to make it her own. How about you decide…

So, this picture of Chris Brown with a bright blue new ‘do did the rounds over the last few hours. He originally released it on his Instagram account but took it off, for some strange reason. You can see disappointed fans asking why he did that on the last picture on the page as well, requesting him to put it back up. His fan Twitter account, ChrisBrownnation still has the picture, which you can see here. We’re a bit flummoxed about why he decided to delete the image? Is it because of some sort of backlash? Is he going back to his regular hair color? Experimenting with hair color isn’t exactly a big deal now. Katy Perry is the primary example of that. And Chris’ band of loyal followers — and there are millions of them — wouldn’t care one bit if his hair were blue, blond or technicolored, right? We wrote about Chris coloring his hair blond and it being beyond us last year, but the change in look didn’t really affect his album sales! But seriously, do you like it? Should he keep it for some time?

Jessica Alba, whyyyyyyyyy? We understand that actors don’t have any control over the hairstyles their characters wear, but Alba’s bleached blond Sin City 2 look is making our retinas detach. “She got roots that Nancy,” the actress tweeted about her character, along with a photo of her hair in an ombre in-between phase. Later Alba post another photo of her hair dyed completely blond, and it’s giving us fashion flashbacks to her peroxide locks in Valentine’s Day. If you’ve seen that movie, you know exactly what we’re talking about. Then, as in now, light blond not Jessica Alba’s best look, but she’s nowhere near the only celeb whose bleached hair makes her look washed out rather than glammed up. From Lindsay Lohan to Victoria Beckham, Emma Stone to Angelina Jolie, a lot of famous ladies know blond is not always a girl’s best friend. Sometimes it just looks bleached.

The last we heard of Lady Gaga was when her bodyguard was taking down an over zealous fan in Romania. That was less than a week ago, which in Gaga time — a different entity from celebrity time, we might add — is like a new century. Because, by the looks of it, she emerges phoenix-like as a completely new person on a weekly basis. Take the photographs above for instance. The paparazzi shots on the left and right were taken as she was heading to the airport in Lithuania. We feel like this is possibly Gaga’s version of goth. All-black clothing, slightly reminiscent of the ’80′s and most importantly, dark brown hair. Which would be completely normal on a regular person, or even your regular celebrity, but on Gaga, the color seems totally surreal. She also tweeted the picture in the middle, which linked to her site, of her on her plane, writing, “And this is how it looks up!! (I know this is boring) but fun!” We love how normal, brown hair for her is fun! But this isn’t any old color, by the way. A tweet, preceding that photograph, read, “Definitely feeling less blond lately and little more progressive brunette. I am LOUIS VUITTON BROWN. B— THATS LV.” So there you have it. It’s not just “progressive brunette”, it’s Louis Vuitton brown. Who knows … maybe Christian Dior red is next.

When we first saw Naomi Watts channeling the late Princess Diana on the set of the new film Diana, we were completely flabbergasted. The resemblance is startling, and Naomi could not have been more perfectly cast. The film’s only out next year and is about the final two years of Diana’s life. Her romantic relationships with Dr. Hasnat Khan and Dodi Fayed are also a large part of the script. The wardrobe and styling department is obviously going all out. The photograph on the left was taken just a couple of days ago, with Naomi rocking a brunette wig. The reason why she’s changed up her hair was because of the fact that scenes of Diana’s secret trysts with Dr. Khan, played by Naveen Andrews, were being filmed. Diana used to change up her hair color to throw off the paparazzi. And just like that, as you can see in the picture on the right, Naomi’s gone back to blond now. The fact that she looks incredible with both looks shows what a style chameleon she is. We may have a year to go, but we can’t wait to watch the film.

We kind of love dramatic makeovers. Miley Cyrus chopping off her hair and going super blond really did it for us. It seems to be such a gutsy and freeing thing to do and who doesn’t love that? The next celebrity, post-Miley, to go in for a brand new look, surprises us. It’s Jenna Dewan-Tatum who, as you can see from the photograph above on the right, has gone choppy and blond as well. Jenna seems like such a girly-girl (we mean that in a good way), which is why this drastic change has thrown us for a loop. She tweeted out the new ‘do, writing, “Do blondes really have more fun?? About to find out.” We have to say, we love this on her. And when you see the before-and-after- pictures, as we’ve presented to you above, you’ll see what a massively different avatar this is. She tweeted an explanation later, saying, “Oh, and the new hair is just for a role guys…started a new movie today.” Is that a wig? It doesn’t seem to be a wig? Maybe she meant she’ll go back to her regular hair right after she’s finished filming her role.
Anyway, since we’ve got two celebrities going short and blond within a week of each other, we wanted to know what your thoughts are on their makeovers. We’ve got Miley’s new look right after the jump, with a poll asking you who looks better — Jenna or Ms. Cyrus? Go ahead and vote! Read more…
