Denise Richards' Big, Bad Billboard Bouffant

12/05/2006 at 01:00 PM ET

What was she thinking? At last night’s Billboard Awards in Las Vegas, Denise Richards stepped on stage to introduce Gwen Stefani’s performance, but who could focus on what she was saying — all we could do was stare at that massive, teased bouffant on top of her head! It almost looked like she bought Beyonce’s B-Day album, saw her hairstyle on the cover and said to her stylist, “I want my hair to look something like that.” And while it might work in still photography, Denise ended up looking more like a chorus member from Hairspray than a dynamic diva. Tell us: What do you think of Denise’s hair-raising look? Was it all in good fun or no fun at all?

I think everyone is just saying her hair looks bad because that is what is written in this article. Followers! There is nothing wrong with this hairstyle, her hair looks real good.

It is not that bad.I think we have defintally seen worse. At least she wasn’t pulling a Britney where you could see where her bob ended and the stupid long extensions were showing.

I won’t comment on her personal life, not really a place in here for hair! :-) jmhp!

Sharon, no need to bash Arkansas. My guess is you’ve never been there. I have lived there and I’ve lived in L.A., and I would definitely pick the former over the latter. Some people prefer a quiet life and really don’t care about, um, cool hairstyles. Because you know, that’s what life’s all about.

I dont think this hair do is that bad, i mean i seen worse for example christina aguileras hair style back in the days when she use to over do it. But denise richards hair in this pic, i think is fine, i mean it does’nt look beautiful but it also does’nt look hideous……She still rocks.

Those are actually good pictures of the hair too, all the others on Getty Images make her look just AWFUL! Its bad trust me for those of you who think she looks good! Take a look at some other photos!

I like it!!! My hair was similar (less messy) for my wedding in June. Just because not everyone likes it doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with it.
PS– Everyone at my wedding loved my hair.
