The Truth Behind Kate Walsh's New Do

04/29/2007 at 10:00 PM ET

We were surprised by the blunt bangs Kate Walsh sported to last week’s GLAAD awards, but amazingly, it turns out that the Grey’s star didn’t have them permanently cut! PEOPLE caught up with her at an Escada party in Beverly Hills a few days later where she told us that the bangs are actually “a piece. I’m trying it out.  I can’t do anything because I’m still shooting the show [Grey’s Anatomy].” Should the actress cut them for real? Help Kate make her decision by voting in our What’s Her Best Look gallery, then come back and tell us: Should she cut bangs or leave her hair as is?

I think she has a good face for bangs, but I don’t like the blunt, thick carpet of them. I think she’d look sweet with long side-swept bangs. I guess I’ve never been a fan of the straight blunt cut.

Julie on

Or, actually, she might look great with no bangs but SIDE-parted hair. Parting her hair in the middle doesn’t look so great, in my opinion.

I like bangs in general, but hers (well, her fake ones) looked way to heavy for her face. I’m glad to hear it’s just a piece. Maybe actual bangs would look good. Side-swept ones would be easier to sport I think. She’s beautiful anyway!

Heather S. on

AMAZINGLY those are fake? They’re not even human hair, let alone her own! I think she looks better without such full bangs, but it may be pretty with thinner bangs.

Summy on

I don’t know if it’s the lighting or makeup too. She looks a lot younger with the bangs. I would go with bangs.
Without she looks harsh.

Julia on

NO, she should not cut her bangs. those bangs make her look like an idiot. very ugly on a normally very attractive woman.

Ashley on

Those bangs look silly to me. They are way too thick, long, and in her eyes. Gives me a headache to just look at this picture. They are not cute!

faith on

i agree with julie about doing a side part.

Christine Davis on

She’s beautiful – but I think the bangs are too heavy. Sideswept bangs might be sexy

Jen on

I love Kate Walsh and think she is gorgeous, but the bangs definitely don’t do much for her. She has worn her hair with more of a side part before, it looks good on her. As long as she stays away from the bangs she will continue to look amazing!

Emily on

I absolutely love Kate Walsh & she’s one of the most beautiful women who walk on this earth but I think she looks better without the bangs. Maybe thinner bangs would look better but these are too full. Still, she looks beautiful with both.

glad on

i think that she should leave her hair as it is..i dont like how the bangs looks on her….

Melissa on

I actually really like it. It brings out her eyes and nice jaw-line a bit more. And I don’t typically like heavy straight bangs. She looks all nappy-headed in the picture without them.

Michele on

I like her with bangs, it really makes her eyes standout.
I would recommend them not being so heavy, her hair looks good straighter.

Cheryl on

Definitely a side part, shorten the bangs to eyebrow length and thin them out to about one third of this mane shown.

Maryse on

Yuck, I’m glad those aren’t her real bangs. While I think Kate would look good with bangs, not this type of bang cut. The bangs are too heavy and somewhat harsh. She should thin the bangs out more and do them sideswept. I think with sideswept bangs the look would be more suttle on her. She’s a beautiful woman regardless. I also agree on the side part, I don’t like the part down the middle.

Angie on

Please please please don’t cut those bangs.

Joanne on

I think the bangs soften her facial features and make her look younger. The look would be much better if the bangs were thinned out a little though.

Nicolle on

She’d look better with some side-swept bangs, not those heavy, blunt-cut ones. She looks better without bangs than with those.

Sophie on

To be honest I think that Kate would look stunning whatever her hairstyle, but I think she should leave her hair as it is. She looks absolutely gorgeous with centre-parted, red wavy hair; it suits her face well and makes her look classically glamorous. I heart kate!

Jezebell on

I thinks she looks better without the bangs. The sideswept bangs look great though =)
