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!”

First of all why r we wasting our time doing these things in the first place its not like she reads them! But I have to say she looks HOT!

Star looks great! It is her real hair however, who would wear a weave that short. You can look at and tell. And for those who are commenting, I hope she continues to wear her real hair period, whether you are black or white or other ethniticities. Extensions are very damaging to women’s hair and the stylists who use them are just making money off of these women who are ruining their hair. And white women wear weaves and hair extensions too, but as usual, they don’t publicize it and they say “extensions”. I know because I am a hair stylist and you wouldn’t believe how many non-women of color are damaging their hair with this stuff. I refuse to use them on my customners and tell them if that is what they want, they can go elsewhere. I am in the business for the care of the hair, not the damaging of the hair.

Star good luck to you, I know you will be a smash, I was with you throughout all the dirt thrown at you on The View and Barbra WA WA is getting her pay back. Star, you did’t deserve what was done to you. It was nobody’s business what you do with your body and since when is it a job requirement to discuss your medical options? Just because that sick puppy Ms. O’Donnell wanted you too. ANd so what if you were delirious with happiness over your wedding and so what if you are a style queen? Women do so much dirt to each other it makes me sick. And what happened to Star regardless of how she carried herself was dirt being donen to a women of color, by who? White and Jewish women. So I’m glad that Star left the View and I’m glad she took matters into her own hands and told the truth as to why she was leaving. I care less about Barbara’s intent to use Star until she brought Rosie on, how insensitive and heartless. And I’m glad that Star showed her intelligence and Trumped her. Donald Trump was the only one who spoke on that bit of dirt done to Star. No one championed Star, but everyone took daggers to her.

So I am happy for her and I hope she becomes bigger than Rosie and Barbara Wa Wa. I once respected Barbara, but no more as far as I’m concerned she is a liar and she can’t be trusted.

Short hair hair is much better for the frame of her face.

Jones has got a new cute hair-do! She has definately changed since having that weight-loss surgery and just is not the same and I miss not seeing her on The View because of her eagerness to join into the daily convo and make funny remarks. I can’t get why, she had to look like everyone else but her old Star self?

She looked GREAT BEFORE her weight loss, but after ….ehh. This is the best she has looked since the weight loss. She lost too much at once and looked terrible. I hope she’ll look better as time goes on. The glasses are too big but besides that it’s ok.

Krystal on

She’s a beautiful lady regardless, but I preferred her more glamorous look.

Why does she always look like her head was cropped in from another picture??? Id be less worried about the hair and more worried about catching the person that did that to her.
