Sophia Bush Gives Us the Scoop On Her New 'Do!

04/24/2007 at 04:00 PM ET

How better to celebrate the end of an era than with a spanking new haircut? After wrapping One Tree Hill on April 3rd, Sophia Bush got a new ‘do, telling PEOPLE at the Diabless Boutique party last week that she “cut about 5 inches off of it, and got to chop my bangs back, and took all the extensions out that we had to wear for the show. Right after we wrapped, [my hairdresser in Wilmington] took out all my extensions, and I was like, ‘Oh my god, my hair is so much shorter than I thought.’ I was like, ‘Well screw it! Just cut it!'” And Sophia is not only relishing the chance to look a little different from her peers (“All the actresses my age are starting to look the same.”), but she’s also ready for life off the set. Sophia told PEOPLE that “it’s kind of like being away at school. You know it’s sad to say goodbye to everybody, but at the same time it’s kind of become a family, and for me to get home and be with my best friends and my family and my man and my dogs, it’s amazing!”

she’s a cute girl. cute girls are gonna look good no matter what they do with their hair. kudos to her for not wanting to look the same as her cookie-cutter peers.

lkd on

I love her and her new look!!! She is very pretty. OTH IS THE BEST SHOW AND I CAN’T WAIT FOR IT TO START AGAIN NEXT WEEK!!!

rachel on

love her!
she looks good in anything

AshleyL on

She’s gorgeous no matter what! But, with that being said, I don’t like her new cut. I think she would look much better with longer bangs that went to one side… her face is too pretty to hide like that behind those bangs, they overwhelm her face!

brittany on

She is pretty and the same with her hair. She is pretty no matter what her hair looks like. She can bald and still beautful.

katia on

HMMmm is the new haircut the one on the right? She looks crazy! She is a beautiful girl but why she needs to cover her eyes with hair? Her nose looks terrible strait away with this “new” hairstyle. Besides it doesn’t look shorter to me, just weird.

glad on

i love her !
her hair looks great and she can rock anything !

Mary on

I wonder if she can see through those bangs . . .

faith on

she seems pretty down to earth, just from reading this. that’s always nice.

alice on

She is a pretty girl. Every interview I have seen her do, she has been so classy and gracious. That is refreshing.

Jennifer on

she should stick with the long hair much prettier

Candi on

Horrible! She looks like she has been in desperate need of getting her hair cut for months. I don’t like this look at all. It takes away from her face. I’ve never been a big fan of hair that is all in your face anyways.

maya on

wow she looks good no matter what..i like her haircut..its similar to her in season 1 of OTH and it gives her a kind of younger/fresher look :D but yep she looks stunning no matter what she is doing or wearing…im so excited for her new movie!! sophia rocks!

jill on

I’m a big Sophia Bush fan and have always envied her hair…that being said, I’m not too impressed. It just looks like a cut I would get from my hairdresser at the mall. She’s still gorgeous though!

rebecca bessa on

i do not like this look on her at all i mean her hair is in her face and personally i only like bangs on certain people. ans she looks beautiful with long hair

jennifer on

She looks ridiculous with those bangs in her face. I like the new cut except for that.

alia on

She looks hellagood…love this haircut!!

Crystal Beach girl on

That’s a hairstyle? It looks terrible. How can she see?

Alicia on

Sophia is a beautiful girl, but I don’t understand why she would want to cover up her eyes. I loved it the last time she had bangs because she kept the length.

Beka on

she looks like a wet dog ugly and shes beau-ti-ful

kellie on

loves it.. sophia is my favorite person in the world and theres nothing she wouldnt look pretty in!

raccel on

those are very good pictures of her.
She is gorgeous, but has anyone seen john tucker must die?
She looked horible and tacky.

Leah on

She’s HOT! Dont like the bangs so much on her but she can get away with anything. Man is Chad Michael Murray really missing out. He really messed up!

athena on

Does goodbye mean no more season 5?:( I love the hair. She can pull off anything:)

SG on

It looks cute. I like it. But the bangs kind of hide her face…

lil on

i definitely love her new look..! she looks great. but then again, sophia looks great with everything.

Kelly on

I love Sophia Bush, she’s just amazing. But the bangs have to be done away with! Perhaps if she were to sweep them to the side or something. But it is over crowding her face and just takes away from her beauty. The length is fabulous though. Hey bangs or no bangs, Sophia Bush is gorgeous.

Austin on

She’s so hot. She looks amazing no matter what she does.

Annelise on

Aww shes always soo pretty! with long hair or short she always looks great! =]!!

Laura on

I love Sophia Bush! Her new hair cut is o.k. but the bangs hang in her face and make her look older. I know that the bangs in the face is the style but its too many bangs. I LOVE OTH!!!!

Tambra M Smith on

I love sophia new hair style because it’s look cool.

charl on

i love this new look, it’s completely different to the style that everyone seems to have now. i used to have my hair like that but i grew it out, i loved it.

Cheri on

She’s a gorgeous girl. Her hair looks great how ever she wears it. I love the new look!! Sophia Rocks!!

Tiffany on

OMG!!! Sophia Bush is my favorite actress. She is very pretty. I just love her in One Tree Hill. That is the best show ever and I cant wait to see in next week. Keep up the good work Sophia and you will do good. Me and my friends. We all love you and admire you for you being you.

Tiffany on

I just love Sophai Bush. She is my favorite actress. I love her new style. I admire her so much on what she has done and I hope she continues to do so. I love One Tree Hill and I cant wait for it to be back next week. Keep up the good work Sophia.

Lindsey on

I luv this girl!! She looks amazing no matter what! Such a role-model & love that she doesn’t want to look like everyone else.. Go Sophia!

alicia on

I think she is amazing, she looks good with both styles, I like it short but i think she should trim the bangs just so you can see a bit more of her face, its to pretty to hide behind all that hair. I think she can pull off any hair style. Good for her that she does not want to be like everyone else in the business. Love the look!!!!

ana on

BEATIFUL!!!!so cute
i love sophia

Evelyn on


othluver on

luv her new look…something different…she’s my favorite actress and the character Brooke is soo me :)

Amanda on

I liked her hair better when she had bangs with long hair. I don’t really like this new do, but she’s still beautiful.

Kaitlyn C. on

I like the new haircut, and while I wasn’t crazy over the bangs….when you really look at the picture, the bangs actually work. She’s a very beautiful girl.

Michelle on

She is so beautiful no matter what.. I love the new hair..

Era on

She looks great. I mean she always does, no matter what hairstyle she has. She is the most beautiful woman.

patty on

she looks so pretty except for the whole “my-bang-is-covering-my-eyes” thingy…..she should just have it swept at one side…anyway..did u see..she mentioned “my man”?? she’s totally in love with j0n!!!! h0w cute!! they so look g0od chad’s kicking his ass every now and then for what he did…

creamy ice on

yeah i agree! she’s a one fanstastic girl and she’s a soooo good looking one!!!!! she can be bald but i know she’ll still be looking oh so hot hot hot!!!!!! and i say, she’s amazing for she doesn’t conform to the trend of those stupid blondes we have today! she’s a wow!

Catie on

i like the “cut” i just don’t like the bangs…if they were like swipe bangs or no bangs would be very cute.

joey on

i would so marry her she is the most beatiful woman in the world i mean come on those dimples!! her new hair is very sexy!!

Anonymous on

i think she looks really pretty. she always does. i think its refreshing to change hair do’s every once in a while.

to those people who are saying how it makes her nose look like this and how it makes her look .. watever. its really not your problem is it? who died and made you fashion police?

kammie on

i personally think she looks like the dog in the pound off of lady and the tramp….bangs dont do her justice:(

nolan on

heyy, her hair is so cute. its something new for her. and does anyone know who her man is? just wondering. ok. love the hair.

Esther on

I loved her with her long hair, but I must say short hair looks pretty too! I have a problem with the bangs though.. like you all said; “Can she see something!?” and why is she hiding those beautiful eyes!?
That said, I found a more recent picture of her.
New hair color + Hair placed diferently = WowWw!!
see it here->

Maggie on
