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?

She looks great, but its not really new is it… i mean she has had look before. She looks fab none the less, just means she knows what works on her

I like the new do. I think it looks cute and sophisticated on her. The long hair looked stringy and made her look nasty.

I think she looks MUCH better as a brunette. Her skin tone is too olive for blond hair. When you have darker skin you should stick to auburn or chocolate brown hair.

She’s looking very healthy and this new “do” (although I don’t think it’s all that new….) really gives her a mature look. Nice to see!

Regarding her ethnicity: (from

Yes, she is adopted, but she is also African American.

Ok guys! I personally am byracial… Who cares about what race she is…she’s ADOPTED. IF she was byracial who cares how she wears her hair.. if she can pull it off then she can. Just because someone is partially mixed with black does’nt mean that they have to chose one side or the other…the have the right to change it up anway that they want! She looks a whole lot better now than she did a few months ago…I’m glad that she is healthier..I luv the new look!

Nicole on

Love it! I think she always looks great.
