Nicole Richie's New Do: Love it or Hate it?

04/16/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

Even though Nicole Richie’s tried every hair color — blonde to red to brunette — we’d gotten used to her long, caramel colored locks recently. But when she stepped out on the red carpet for the Race to Erase MS Gala in L.A. on Saturday night, the Simple Life star had a much lighter, sleeker shoulder-length cut with heavy bangs. We think the paler blonde sets off her skin tone beautifully, and the bob suits her petite frame. But we want to know what you think! Tell us: Do you love Nicole’s new do? Or should she go back to her old look?

I love the New look. It fits her face perfectly, it also brings out her skin tone.

The shorter one makes her look really old! The longer one is totally better!

Guess the short hair will be lower maintenance for her while serving the jail term. So Bravo to her, I guess.

LOL best line EVER!!! she isn’t African American, anyway – she’s ADOPTED.
You heard it here first folks. Adopted is the new race! I’m so glad we had this little chat.

Not sure if anyone is aware of this but her shorter do is still extensions. I saw a close-up of this shot and you can see all the bonds. So sure the shorter do is cute but it certainly isn’t natural

Like the cut, hate the color. This pale blond just does not look good with her skin tone. She’d do better with a chocolate brown color.

nicole is SO hot. the hair looks great…she looks really good now that shes gained a little weight. She has such a beautiful face…georgeous eyes.

I don’t care if she’s purple w/green polka dots. She is looking alot more healthy these days and she can rock ANY hairstyle!

Actually, I was stating that just because her father is Lionel Richie doesn’t mean she’s black, since she was adopted. I agree that the sentence does seem a bit simplistic in form. However, I don’t usually post an essay in these forums.
