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 it! I think it looks very nice on her. Frames her pretty face nicely.

I think she looks great both ways her bob is a bit more sophisticated looking which looks nicer for the red carpet but either way short or long they both look exalent and she looks alot healthier and this mixed race comments i ahve to say i can barely tell she is half african or whatever because you would never no by looking at her even when she has dark hair she still looks light

I don’t think changing her looks matters. Either way she looks consistently sick, pale and unhealthy. She’s the reason I don’t do drugs. Poor thing, she’s a lost cause for beauty.


not that this is exactly ‘new” but it totally looks better than before. the long hair just looks weird, like she was lazy or sometin else weird. def the shorter look is better 4 her–but it really isnt new, shes worn it similarly b4.

She’s absolutely beautiful with this new hairstyle! It’s a keeper for sure! She just looks healthy and vibrant.

I love Nicole’s new haircut! However, the very blonde shade looks too fake on her and does nothing for her complexion. I like her better as a brunette.

Nina on

I love her new look!!!!! And 4 Cher dont hate!

katie on

HELLOOOOOO??? Nicole has changed herself into PARIS HILTON!!!

Cara on

I think she looks gorgeous no matter what. But I prefer her shorter shoulder length hair. She looks older and more sophisticated and less like that awful Rachel Zoe.

Just wanted to state this, Nicole Richie is Bi-racial just to clarify. Someone said she is adopted so she is not black. Yes, she is adopted but she is still part black. I guess I wouldn’t question it bc I am Bi-racial and to me she looks part black. Anyway look up her real parents and she says it publicly anyway. J I know your question was to Jena and she answered it great. I just wanted to add that some bi-racial people will state they are black bc it is the ethnicity that they identify with. This is a tough world and if you take it back in the days one drop of “black” blood you were considered Black. It hasn’t changed. I don’t mind it. I love to identify with black women cause all my life I was considered black to every ethnicity. I could tell stories to show you through my past experiences but that would take a novel. Anyway her hair is adorable. I have a cut like that myself.
