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!”

Why is Star Jones Reynolds making such a big change in her life? When she was fat, unmarried, and with big hair she was “BETTER” liked and way more successful. Why all the change?

Over 55,
My mom has long hair and she is 55. As you mentioned your aunt wore her hair in a bun or braid! So does my mom and I hate that. I am always telling her to cut her hair! Have a style! If you’re going to have long hair to wear in a bun or braid you’ll look old! This is not Little House on the Prairie! I am 30 and just cut my hair into a pixie cut yesterday! So easy and stylish and my husband loves it! Why are women so afraid of change???

I’d like to say KUDOS to the photoshoppers who touched up this image of Jones-Reynolds. The thighs don’t match, but they’re pretty close, and the waist has a pretty good hourglass cutout going on. I run 50 miles a week but yet her thighs are thinner than mine, and I only weigh 118 pounds, so good job. Man, I’d love to see what they could do with pics of the rest of us! HERE, HERE!

Star! Looks great she was one of the best Hostess from the VIEW! the VIEW is not the same without her…she looks BEAUTIFUL!!!Wish her the best!!

I think Star was “better” liked because she was fat, unmarried and had bigger hair. People like that in Hollywood tend to get overlooked. Now that she has made a drastic change in her life, the spot light is now on her. Human nature makes us ask why and even begin to covet things that we see everyday. It is sad but true, most of the negative comments on here and every where else stem from jealousy. Sad, huh?
Star, you look fabulous. You are truly an inspiration.

Her hair looks good, but let’s face it – she’s still Star!! Same old annoying, pretentious know-it-all.

Linda you get a life. She looked better fat her face is all fake looking she is nasty and she screwed up with Barbara Walters bad mistake her show will NOT last.

Oh c’mon. Star’s egomania is what’s offensive. Who says “I want a hairdo that shows off my great body?” particularly if the great body was achieved via gastric bypass.

Star, you look great!!! I am so proud of you. I hope you stay encourge and keep moving forward. People always have something to say, whether it’s good or bad. Just belive in yourself and live every day to the fullest.
