Sarah Michelle Gellar is no stranger to changing her hair color — we’ve seen her go from light Buffy-era browne to a rich brunette before. But we always think of the actress with long hair, so we can’t stop staring at her new (darker) bob! Sarah Michelle certainly has the bone structure to carry off a shorter ‘do, but we miss her long locks already! Tell us: What do you think of Sarah Michelle’s new ‘do? Love it or hate it?

I love it! But as usual you picked a bad picture to present the new do. There are better pics online…

Rosie on

I absolutley love her hair do!She looks amazing!

Princess on

I like her hair better long.

Marina on

I usually prefer shorter hair on girls in general but I actually miss SMG’s ‘long locks’ as well! She still looks adorable though of course.

Jennifer on

I love it. I think she looks wonderful. I love the color too.

nadege Chouteau on

She is always georgous with any hair colour or hair cut. Lovely beautiful Sarah :D Always a nature beauty!!

V on

She looks great! About time she got rid of that years-out-of-style do!

kathy on

love it!!!!!
She looks a bit like katie holmes tho.

Diane on

She’s cute either way and with the high quality extensions that celebs have access to she can have her long locks back tomorrow.

Tina on

I think her hair looks great….She looks great either way but the new bob is more mature.

laci on

i love it. the haircut is in. the really long hair hasn’t been in for a while. the layers look great on her.

Meghan on

I love it! It makes her look young, hot and low matienence as compared to her pagent-hair that she’s been sporting for quite some time. Two thumbs way up!

Megan on

It accentuates how bony she is and how thin her hair is on the top. Methinks someone needs to eat a sammich. She looks like a Richie clone.

Morgan on

i think she looks pretty either way. yeah, i like the long hair better, but the bob is more sophisticated. anyways, shes gorgeous, so she looks gorgeous either way!!!

Morgan on

she looks gorgeous either way, but i like the long hair better. the bob is more sophisticated, though. anyways, she pretty either way.

BH on

I love it! I’m so tired of the same long styles on celebs. Let’s applaud SMG for pulling off a real world look so well!

Kristen on

I love Sarah Michelle Gellar. Anything she wears looks great on her, even how she style’s her hair. She’s always changing her hair. I think her new bob and color looks amazing on her! She can pull any hairstyle off. It really complaments her bone structure. And makes her beautiful face pop out more.

Vavi on

love it! looks great

Terra on

LOVE IT!!! I was so sick of her same old look ……

HLS on

Sarah Michelle’s new hair cut looks fabulous. It looks much more grown up and stylish than her old style. It’s still long enough to wear up but not so long that it drags her down.

ehh on

its ok…its not dramatic or anything. its more of a safety cut.

Me on

I like her with long hair soooo much better! I dont like this Bob hair cut everybody is doing.

NA on

I love it!
It really suits her!

Hilz on

Love it! It is very cute on her and looks awesome!

NA on

I think it really suits her!

Jackie on

i second the thought, there are much better pics you could have posted of her with her new do… i love it though, i think it looks very cute =)

Bella Baybieex33 on

i L0VE iT

AnnieJ on

She looks great with either do, but prefer her former look.

Sandy on

I love it. She is great at changing looks and making it work.

Tbellefontaine on

Love it!

Sam on


ariesa on

i think that she looks really good.

kj on

she looks really good and her cut is very summery

Jeannette on

Love it! She looks a little like Katie Holmes. The long hair was dated. Plus if she wants it long again she can get extensions and have both!

Shannon on

Love it! Not too short, that would have made her look like a little girl! Still long enough to pull it back if needed. It’s always good to make a change… lightens your heart!

debbs on

HATE IT! It looks awful. Why is everyone getting hideous haircuts? I blame Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes.

Sue on

It looks really good and fitting for her age. The other cut made her look like a teenager. Of course you can tell this magazine is biased towards her long hair given the two opposing pics. Just like the when they ask if “light hair or dark hair” is better and have fabulous pics of light hair and digusting pics with the dark hair. Its lame!

Amanda on


Sabrina on

She looks great. She’s between the few ppl who can wear a wide range of colours looking great with any of them. With the bob she looks great… everybody needs to change smth sometime..

Anonymous on

I think her hair looks better long!

bliss on

i think it looks a whole lot cuter when she has long hair. short hair makes her look older

bliss on

her hair is so much cuter when its long cuz just like posh and katie they look older when their hair is shorter!!!!

Tania A. on

I love it!!! I think that stars that go for a shorter ‘do shows that they are confident and out-going! I find that to many teens and stars hide behind long hair.

Alice on

It looks better shorter. She was starting to have “pageant” hair.

Elizabeth on

I love it… She has it short before and it really looks good…matter of fact she’s one of the type that can pull of anything…really..

Marilyne on

I like her new do, it’s really cute! I agree with Kathy : she looks a bit like Katie Holmes on the picture.

Lauren on

I think she looks like Avril on the picture on the right with her new haircut.

Allie on

I think that her hair looks good both ways, but in general I like her longer hair better.

LAS on

I think it looks great!! ;-> People need to remember an updated hair cut and/or “do” is normal for ALL of us over the years. Michelle, DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY and NO ONE ELSE. . .

Rebecca on

Bad picture, but I like the haircut! It’s about time she made a change- although her hair is pretty long, it was getting a little boring.

Krissy on

Love it – good look for her!



Bridgette on

I love her new cut. She is so beautiful that she can pull a multitude of styles off. I hope to see her in more roles in movies and television.

:huh: on

i like it alot i think it looks great

Lauren R on

I love Sarah Michelle no matter what, but I’m partial to the long hair!

Grenda on

Are there any better pictures of her with her new haircut? it would be much easier to judge
if both pictures were equally flattering.
In this picture, I really can’t get a good
sense of her hair. Please post another one
that is better!

Rebecca on

Hate it.

Jenna on


traci on

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her new hairstyle!! No one should get stuck with one style.

kristi on

i like it, but can we say calista flockhart!?!

Leah on

Sarah can pretty much pull off any look, she’s got a fabulous sense of style that mixes well with her ever-changing hair! Beautimus!

Kari on

I like her with longer hair, I DONT think her bone structure can pull off the shorter cut as well as it does the longer style.I definitley miss the longer locks.

Karolina on

She look fantastic, I like her style

sharon on

I absolutely LOOOOVVVEEEE it . It’s very sophisticated and chic!

Ashley on

Usually I’m all about long hair… but the shorter bob definitely looks more flattering on SMG. The first thing you see is her pretty face, before she looked a little buried under all that hair!

Emilee ♥ on

I like both the long and short hair on SMG. I love long hair, and SMG looks great with long hair, and there’s more to do with the long hair, but her short hair looks really cute as well on her. I like the fact that the short hair isn’t too short, it’s just the right length, and she can still do things with her hair. I like the hair color on her too. Regardless, SMG is beautiful as usual.

kim on

It looked better the last time she chopped it shorter, in ’01-’02. I think she’s prettier with darker colors, but the shorter hair looked better blonde.

amy on

Looks way better short, she looked childish with the longer hair. She is a very pretty celebrity.

cliter on

not impressive…can be much

Brittany on

Longer is better for her. Always has been.

flower child on

It looks as if she’s trying out a new style, or maybe the photo caught her on a down day. Either way I like it! Change is good and the aviators are the cherry on top of those deep locks :)

Diana on

I think that it makes her look older. I like the long hair on her better.

Mycah on

HATE IT! she looks better as a blond, and jessica biel? what the hell??? hello cameron diaz! next thing you know she will be blond again…does Justin has this affect on women or what??!!

Mel on

Like it, but she looks like she could use a good meal

ahleyani on

i hte itttt

Sheila on

LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!

Kristi P 47 on

She looks better with long hair the original color a more redish brown not darker and in a bob.

chris on

her new do is cute!

Maria on

Her look is great, but I prefer the long hair and she’s better with brown hair.

ann taleser on

i like her long hair better..but her new cut is not that bad

Natalie on

i love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Grace on

I think it looks Way better long!

Mégane on

J’adore, elle est superbe!!

Lu on

I like it but agree with others that they could have used a better picture of her.

debra on

I totally love it!
I gives this really cool freshness

bd on

She is always beautiful and most definitely does not look 30 years old either!

Jessica on

All I want to say is that I totally love her hair. Sure her long hair looked great on her but with all the new celebs that are out now she had to add some spice to her look and she looks totally hot.

Jessica on

Love her new hair :)

Heiress on

Love it! Kinda makes her look like Anne Hathaway from “The Devil Wears Prada”

Sasha on

I think she looks like my next door neighbor with the new haircut…a tired soccer mom.

Ashley on

The right pic looks like sarah doesnt have any makeup on .
