Shanna Moakler's New Bangs: Love 'Em or Hate 'Em?

03/21/2007 at 03:56 PM ET

Partying in Miami to celebrate her birthday (the Playmate turns 32 on March 28th), Shanna Moakler showed off her newly rekindled relationship with ex Travis Barker and a hot new do. Channeling an 80’s rock chick, Shanna went even brighter blonde and dared for heavy bangs — cut and colored at two separate salons! A new cut is a perfect jumpstart into summer, and what better way to change an entire look than to cut bangs? “I just wanted to do something new and fresh,” says the former Miss USA and Playboy model tells PEOPLE. “I love it!” Tell us: Do you agree with Shanna and love the new do? Or do you hate them and miss the old look?

Wow people are mean. I agree the bang picture isn’t the best picture to post in order to judge the new look. Plus whoever said bangs are out and from the 90’s, says who?? I happen to wear longer bangs because I look worse without them. Others agree also, it suits my face better. Bangs can be worn if they look good on a person, they never go out of style, just maybe the actual hairdo or the way they are styled. I think it’s a good change. Every blond in Hollywood looks the same. Long blond one length locks, make up, skinny etc. About time someone tries something different.

Shanna Moakler looks hideous in both pictures. Travis can do way better. Oh, no. I don’t think he can. Shanna looks something like Anna Nicole, with the drugged up look and burning red complexion. She should go dark honey blonde and cut her hair to a pixie, or at least 80’s retro chic. The kind that I like!

I think Shanna is the cutest! At first I thought no way, but if you picture her all done up and with her personality it will all come together…she can pull it off! I hope her and Travis have worked it out they obviously do love each other….

Shanna usually looks like she’s trying too hard with her skimpy eyebrows and overdone make-up, but not hard enough with her roots and somewhat sloppy hair. I think the new haircut and color make her look younger. I’m usually not a big fan of bangs, but the haircut could be a good change for her- need to see a better photo. Now she just needs to keep up the color and keep the makeup simple!

LOVE the color, it was about time to rid herself of those awful, make you look 10 years older and super trashy black roots!! LOVE the softer make-up, she looks years younger without so much heavy make-up on. I guess I’m in the minority on that point, as most people indicated they think the new ‘do makes her look older. I think what IS making her look older is those ridiculous bangs!!! If you want bangs, fine – just make them soft and whispy. Bangs that are what we used to call a “doo doo roll” back in the day are NOT flattering on anybody, not even a former Miss USA and/or Playboy Playmate. But then again, she is “madly in love” with one of the grossest looking men on the face of the planet, so what can you say!?!?

I think she looks a bit like Anna Nicole Smith with the bangs. Kinda trashy like someone you might run into at some random discount store. Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad if the color was a little more complimentary to her skin tone.

I happen to think she looks awsome with bangs. Very trendy and fun!!!

Interesting that other people don’t dig the eyebrows either! I think it’s something about how thin they are and how high they arch, but I don’t think they’re right for her face. Bangs might be great, but I wish I could see her made up and from the front to get a better idea of how it compares.

More importantly than losing the ridiculous bangs, she needs to re-lose Travis Barker. Funny thing is she doesn’t APPEAR to be that desperate, yet desperate she must be. After all, who in their right mind would want ANYthing that the ubiquitous sleaze Paris Hilton had used and discarded like yesterday’s fast food wrappers?! I’m wagering that Ms. Moakler can do far better for herself.

she got bangs to copy all the hot models in the magazines….but she is a “different” kind of model…not a high-fashion one….hope Travis knows that her “new” look may change her on the outside but she’s still the SAME on the INSIDE….BE CAREFUL TRAV, you deserve BETTER
