EXCLUSIVE: How Britney Got Her New Look!

11/16/2006 at 01:00 PM ET

Call it Extreme Makeover: Britney Spears edition. Not only did she debut her new body on The Late Show, but she also underwent a three-day total makeover with top stylists Rita Hazan and Ramy Gafni. “It was a major transformation,” star colorist Hazan told PEOPLE. First up was a bright, blonde bob for Britney. “She called me and her hair was a medium brown and we took it to really pretty light golden blonde. It signifies how sexy she is!” When Britney’s hair was finished, Gafni reshaped her eyebrows and did her makeup. “I met with her the Monday she did Letterman, at about 3 p.m.” he says. “And she had to be in the car on the way to the show at 3:45!” Gafni was pleasantly surprised at how laidback Britney was. “Most celebrities I’ve done will hold the mirror up and want to see every hair you tweeze. “She said, ‘I like a smokey eye and dewy skin but otherwise, do whatever you want.'” And the end result? A brand-new Britney.

I think Britney looks great! I think her stylist razored her hair a little too much, it looks really thin now. And I’m not really sure what she was trying to achieve with the bangs? But, I am not trying to diss on her because she does look beautiful, and I’m happy for her that she broke up with Kevin and is getting her life on track.. I’m ready to see a picture of Jayden. I am guessing she put it off because she did not want to do a ‘family’ picture with Kevin. But, I think it will be great to see her with her two boys, and we will probably see that when she is ready to discuss her reasons for getting a divorce with People or Oprah.

I think she looks terrible! I don’t like it at all

She washed that man right out of her hair!

Makeup and body look fine…but I don’t like the hair on her. Way too severe. She looks so much better with big, curly hair in my opinion.

Wasn’t it reported that she was wearing a wig? I think she looks good but oh so different in all the different pictures that are popping up.

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but something is *off* in her appearance now. She looks a heck of a lot better lately, but the haircut doesn’t look right on her- almost looks like a wig in this photo. Her face looks different too, but maybe it’s just a side effect of the strange hairstyle. Either way, I’m glad she’s moving on and hopefully will be happier without “Fed Ex”!

She is beautiful – but the new do needs to go – She looks better with longer, fuller hair.

She looks more refined, but she doesn’t look like herself. I liked her hair the different ways she did it before; when it was *her* trying different things for herself; what’s odd about this photo is it just doesn’t look like her hair, and it’s sooo straight, but doesn’t look like a “healthy” straight; it looks like it’s crying out for conditioner: too fragile looking. She said she liked dewey skin; her stylist needed to give her “dewey hair”, too, which is usually what Britt has. SIDE NOTE: I am very impressed that she is one of the few celebrities who neither seems to despise NOR perform for the cameras that follow her around: she seems to accept their presence and just keeps being herself.

I really like her new do and it makes total sense why whe would want to cut her hair! getting rid of her man and two babies to take care of? people really need to lay off of her about her new look. I think she looks great and I hope she’ll be able to deal with the public mess that Kevin is probably going to put on. He’s definitely not going away quietly. He’s gotten too used to that lifestyle! It’s so pathetic.
