Star Jones's Hair Stylist Gives The Scoop On Her New Do!

03/16/2007 at 05:00 AM ET

We heard from so many readers who loved Star Jones Reynolds new (more professional) look, specifically her new blunt bob haircut. The usually long-locked Reynolds entrusted her longtime stylist Oscar James to chop off her mane on March 5, just two days before the press conference announcing her new show on Court TV. “She said she wanted a new look– something to showcase her great new body,” he says. James– who also styles Vanessa Williams– opted for a simple, classic bob spiced up with five different colors from blonde to golden to chestnut. After two hours of not peeking, Star, James recalls, “spun around in the chair and she took a deep breath a went ‘oh’. I thought I was in trouble. But then she started smiling, she loved it!” And what does the new host of Court TV have to say about her new look? “It’s a new chapter in my life!”

My comment is ‘who cares?’.

This look is great for Star. She looks very nice and classy. I’m glad she’s wearing glasses too, it softens her eyes which tend to look really big and bulgy without them.

Did Star ever say how she lost weight?I know she denied gastric by-pass.She lost weight very fast and looked sick
but it’s looking more and more the norm.I really wish her the best on her show.I think the view was wrong.

To “BR”. What is this about women over 35 should not have long hair? My Aunt Anna wore her beautiful, long white hair in either a braid or a bun until the day she died at 87. It’s not up to you to decide at what length a woman wears her hair. I will wear my hair long (shoulder length or longer) until I can no longer care for it or I don’t like it, not because of someone else’s opinion or fashion dicates.

I, too, don’t understand all the hoopla – especially about her haircut since it is a weave and could easily be redone if she didn’t like it. It is just like putting on a different styled wig which is hardly anything newsworthy.

Star, you look gorgeous and professional. Much classier.

Star needs a bang or something, but this cut is better than the long weaves. Its an improvement.
