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!”

i love the new look. she is finally in proportion with her small size! she always looked a little too big “headed” with the long hair since she ost so much weight.

I hope she got rid off her over the top diva attitude along with her bad hair.

Star looks OLD and Starved!!!!! PLUS, I a can not praise someone who didn’t tell the truth about a common weight loss surgery. I use to like Star, but since I saw her not being honest about her weight loss story, I lost respect for her. She owed it to her fans from the beginning to TELL THE TRUTH. I think it was a publicity stunt so she could “milk the public” SHE IS A FAKE! Plus she lost an opportunity of a life-time with Barbara Walters! Well, I’m over it, so what ever floats her boat. I wonder if she stills breaths as heavily as she did on the “VIEW”? I honestly hope she is in better health. With this said, let me get back to realty and make some BBQ!!! Want some Star?

I am 40, still have long hair and will not get it cut, not because of change, but because I would look just like my brother, ew. If she had gastric bypass, who cares? It’s her body, her business. But I do agree she needs some bangs to soften up her forehead. Live your life for you Star, not for anyone else.

If Star is happy, then we should be happy for her. I think her new look suits her and definitely seems to make her feel good about herself and that’s what counts! She is talented and smart and seems to have found a fresh, new look for her new show. She looks healthy and ready to begin a new chapter in her life and career!

Life is evolving. Star you look absoutely wonderful. You looked good back in the day and you look even better now. The brain and the inner is what counts and it seems to be in the top of the range – hence the new show. Big ups to you.

I don’t get the big deal about Star not disclosing the method she used to loose weight. It is a personal matter, i mean if she wants to share it fine, and if she doesn’t that’s fine too! It’s her right. If you had hemmoroids, would you sit on national tv and announce it or announce how you got treated for it???????? Hello, it is no different, our personal lives are our own persoanl lives, that doesn’t mean because we are in the media spotlight we are obligated to tell everyone what’s going on healthwise, it’s a matter of personal choice. Only she knows how she struggled and if she felt it fit not to talk about it, i think we should all respect that. Now let’s move on!!
