Would You Wear Paris's Asymmetrical Bob?

We’ve seen quite a few fashionistas chop their hair into asymmetrical bobs this year — from Rihanna to Posh, and now Paris Hilton. While we applaud the heiress’s decision to ditch her signature extensions, she may be proof that this style isn’t for everyone. We want to know: Do you think Paris’s bob is too asymmetrical? Would you sport this style?

Jenna on

Durrrrrr! its so cute! Paris has awesome style!

Amanda on

LOVE it, I am getting my hair cut just like this once my current bob grows out.

She looks way better like this then with the stupid extension.

candi on

i love her hair. i think it looks better short rather than long!

fashionexpert on

NO!!! I hate those haircuts

AJ on

Don’t get me wrong I like the cut, but come on doesn’t every celebrity have this do now. . .be original people!!!!!!!

blah on

i dont like this look on her at all, i think its time for a hair color change and she needs to stop with the blue contacts too… not cute.


I Love The “Victoria Beckham” Inspired Bobs!


Im Planning To Get One Like “Posh” This Weekend!(No Layers, Even Length @ The Back,Equally Steep @ The Sides, With Some Brow Bangs)


Rachel on

No. I’m tired of this look.

Jaime on

I’m a hairstylist. Everyone is already asking for it. =)

suzanne callahan on

yes,i love it, i have it now,i think its a great style.

jen on

i couldn’t pull this off

Glenys on

Love it! Looks good on her! I do agree that everyone doesn’t have to get this cut though…


I agree with AJ every celebrity have this do now. . .be original people!!!!!!!

ALY on

It looks like she’s just trying to do the whole Posh/Rihanna thing but it doesn’t work for her. the cut is too choppy

kristin on

i love it! paris can pull this off for sure. love it on her!

C on

Yes,I love it on Paris!

Denise on

This looks like a mixture of hard liquor and poor haircutting skills. When I was in university one of the girls gave another girl a haircut one night, after drinking too much… An Asymetrical bob was the end result. Considering posh’s reverse mullet was a hit, I imagine this will be popular with the style challenged to.

Nat on

No I wouldn’t wear anything this woman wears. Also I think it is a ridiculous look. Long full flowing hair will always be the most beautiful and feminine look in my eyes. Catherine Zeta Jones would look good with this cut but why would she want it instead of her beautiful long locks? I’ve taken a poll and guys are not impressed by this look either. Is this her real hair? Another thing I am so sick of is hair extensions. Fake hair should go first and foremost to cancer patients not socialites who don’t have the patience or genes to grow their own natural healthy long hair.


SHE LOOKS LIKE MARTHA STEWART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

sabrina on

Paris is dumb, so this haircut is too!

Rebecca on

I like the cut on Paris! I got a similar cut after donating 10 inches, but mine is more natural and wavy. I’m not a big fan of Victoria Beckham’s hairstyle, but Paris’ hair looks pretty this way.

Lauren on

I think it looks super cute. It is a classic cute with a bit of an edge.

Daisy on

She looks very pretty!!! She should stick to short hair it compliments her face better than her old long hair!! Although I do have to agree with everyone else that’s saying that the whole “Posh bob” is getting old. Everyone has the cut, you go out and you see tons of girls with it! I cut mine in the beginning of the year, and then got sick of it. So now I’m stuck trying to grow it out! Bottom line, let’s bring back longer hair like the “older-Jessica-Simpson” style!!!

Janessa on

Considering I had that haircut about three years ago, yes.

I’m amazed at how many celebrities are finally catching on to the short asymmterical hairstyles that my pals and I have been sporting for years.

If done correctly, they compliment every hair and face type.. but Paris’, I don’t like it. Its a very sloppy cut and she doesn’t wear it with pride.

rashundra on

Ok, guys, this isnt a cut. she put extensions in the front. you can totally tell the different lengths.

Vonnie on

amazing and pretty…..i’m loving her looks without the long extensions


Karen on

i have to give her credit when she deserves it, caz thats not often. but she looks great.

Lola on

NOBODY can pull off that hairstyle EXCEPT for Victoria Beckham. ; )

Christine on

Yes. It is very cute and classy. Makes her look less like a ho. And that’s never a bad thing.

Blake on

Ew. Gross. It looks like they forgot to cut one side of her hair. You can only pull that off if you’re British.


It makes her looks so much more mature and classy! I love it!

Lydia on

It looks like an unfinished haircut. That’s soooo NOT hot.

Sarah on

Good Job Paris!!

She looks darling and very mature. Much better than other past styles.

Lelani on

I think her hair looks ridiculous. Posh’s reverse mullet,( business in the back, party in the front ) is the WORST style I have ever seen. The main reason short hair is so popular is people are lazy. As for extensions, the thought of a perfectly healthy woman having another womans hair woven to her head simple because she is too lazy to care for her own hair is absurd.

janet on

I LOVE IT!!!! As soon as i saw it i wanted this haircut for myself.

Bethany on

Her best look yet!

jane on

I’m absolutely loving it! She is beautiful and this really suits her.

Nat on

Lelani THANK YOU I can’t believe someone else feels the same way.

I must say the beauty regiments of today are absolutely ridiculous. I think it’s great to have fun with your appearance but nowadays beauty has taken such an ugly turn; fake hair, fake nails, fake eyelashes, 50 pounds of makeup put on with a trowel everyday, plastic surgery and frakenstein ingredient filled cosmetics and gross fake tanning. Barf. Natural beauty is being devoured by marketing and dangerous/fake/tacky alternatives. Since most girls do all this junk to themselves for men it bears mentioning that most men find the whole fake thing disgusting unless it’s actually necessary for serious reasons (like “all my hair fell out because I’m battling cancer”). Paris could do a lot of good with the massive amount of wigs and fake hair she has. I always thought of fake hair as a total Grandma thing like “hey honey help Grandma put her wig on”. It’s so sad and almost hilarious in a pathetic kind of way seeing young generations of prefectly healthy girls wearing wigs and fake hair. Gosh I really wonder if these fake and bake queens that rule Hollywood have ever gone through anything real or difficult in their lives (that excludes their own self created misery) because their beauty regiments say a tremendous amount about what shallow, sheltered, materialistic lives they lead.

Lelani on

Nat, I agree with your comments too. There is way too much fake in todays beauty. My hair is to my waist, one length, and is all me. At least a couple times a month people ask if I have extensions, yuck. It is not rocket science to have long hair, stay out of the parlor, and when you do go bring a friend to watch you back, literally, and only get a trim to even the ends. People say they don’t have time to care for long hair ??? If they watch tv, they have time. I regularly get compliments on my hair and guys tell me they wish their girlfriend/wife would grow their hair.
