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!”

She looks like a dry lizzard.

My only question is where did all of the extra skin go when she lost the weight? She must have had it cut off. She was way too big and lost way too much weight to just bounce back like elastic. As for her hair- it’s kinda plain. She has a big head and a big face and needs a lil fluff to help cover that up. Her face looks WEIRD now. Any thoughts…?????

she looks so much better in this picture than in any of the other ones i have ever seen of her

Not only do I not think her hair looks better, I think it makes her head look even bigger. She looked better when she was heavier, than at least her head didn’t look like a balloon floating over her body. Besides, it is what is inside that counts, so lets look inside Star Jones; liar, back stabber, God-complex, Vain. She needs to worry about the inside and stop focusing on and lying about the outside.

Star looks great and I congrats her on loosing weight. I don’t care if she had gastric or did it counting calories or what ever. The fact is she did it. People that are very heavy are at risk of developing many health conditions and they should do whatever is in their power or bank accounts to do so. As for the long hair issue, I have long hair and I am 35. I have no intention of cutting it either. When I go out in public, I wear it long and I always use a flat iron on it. Sure it takes about 10 mins to run an iron through my hair but it is well worth it. When I’m just staying in then I wear it in a bun. Long hair looks great at any age as long as its well taken care off and styled to your own taste. Sure I’ve had short hair in the past but I feel more comfortable with long hair. I really don’t understand why people are always going on about people who have long hair should cut it. I’m not into fashion but the one thing that I have noticed is that there is a lot of models out there with long hair. If people let fashion dictate their lives then why is their such hatred to long hair???

Star looks fabulous. I love EVERYTHING about her new look. She looks younger and her body just keeps getting better.

I can make myself look that good if I spent as long on photoshop as howver fixed this picture.
Losing that much weight aged her face big time.

I have no problem with Star Jones, and I think she was beautiful when she was heavier. It was great to see a strong, beautiful woman on tv who happened to be heavy. I was proud of her for losing weight (however she did it), but this picture (which is the most recent and only very recent picture I’ve seen of her) looks like her head is too big for her body. I think it has to do with the angle of her body and maybe her forehead (which someone mentioned earlier). Regardless, the haircut is cute (though bangs might help) and I love her glasses.

Starr looks so great… matter what she did or how she did it or how she did it… takes
discipline to keep it off..She deserves all
the good things coming her way

k. on

I can’t stand her. She looked better heavier and what’s with the huge forehead. Get some bangs, girl!
