What Do You Think of Madonna's New Hairdo?

We thought we had seen Madonna with every possible haircut and color possible by now, but the Material Girl has surprised us one more time. While attending a N.Y.C. screening for husband Guy Richie’s new film Revolver, Madonna showed off a shorter curly new ‘do. It’s shades of her Blond Ambition tour style but the dark roots with bright blond remind us of her early ’80s look. We think it’s great that Madonna’s still trying out new styles, but we want to know what you think of her latest incarnation. Tell us: What do you think of Madonna’s new curly look?

guess who on

I hate Madonna’s new hair. That blonde color is terribly unflattering to her skin tone and the roots make it look even worse. Her style looks teased and she just looks old and tired. She can do better.

Jasmin on

not her best and she needs a brighter lipstick

TCurry on

She might want to go and try something a little different.

BMc on

I think this is the prettiest, softest and most real she’s ever looked.

Anylu on

I do not agree with the people above. I absolutely love her new hair style. I think she strongly influences todays style. Love her! :)

Vonnie on

something about it irks me…i can’t put a finger on it, though

elizabeth on

To be honest i never think she looks well, she’s distinctly average! That hair-style is fine on her…it’s not as if her hair ever looks any better than that!

BigShot on

Roots. Longer Layers. She looks dangerously close to Carrrot Tops long lost sister. Still have nothin’ but love for her

emma on

The hairdo looks old-fashioned, but so did it in the Hung Up video. She needs to upgrade herself. It looks better long and straight.

DukenDaisy on

Can this woman not afford to ever have her roots done? Even I can go out and buy a box of Nice N Easy!

Bella Boo on

I like the hair, but not on her. It looks like too young and carefree of a style, I think she needs something a little more refined and polished.

Linda Elizabeth on

As Madonna is aproachig her big 50 bday, I believe this style is very appropiate, she’s not pretending to be in her 20’s. Madonna looks fantastic, I love it and the lenghth is beyond perfect. This is wonderful for her life style today!! LOVE IT!!

jen on

the new hairdo is very a la carrie bradshaw

krista on

This style is much softer and flattering than the previous 70s winged look. If I can look half as good as Madonna when I’m pushing 50, I’ll be ecstatic.

Daisy on

i agree with BMc……most real she’s ever looked and she’s representing a look that i would associate with classy women.

sls on

it looks better i like it,but she can pull off anything and it ok……….

Jelena on

I don’t like it at all. She doesn’t look as herself at all. I liked her hair form the “Hung up” phase.

ninuka on

i like her look in this pic! the hair the make up ….

anu on

i think a lot of madonna’s looks, including this one, probably look better in person and just don’t photograph well. in these photos, with bright lights, the pale lipstick next to the pale skin and light hair, make everything seem washed out, but in regular lighting, it probably all comes together a lot better.

Joffin on

I think Madonna looks really old in that hair. But that’s not wrong since she IS!! I think Madonna’s new look should be an old lady-look.
I was so disgusted with her “bathingsuit”-look. You could really see that she was old. She should not go around dressed like that. Think of your children GOD DAMMIT!!!

Stephanie on

looks just like a poodle.

Robin on

I shuddered when I saw this. This makes her look incredibly old!

The Mac Mom on

It’s just okay. Is that a mustache? Her complexion looks a little rough, but her eyes are beautiful. I think she may exercise a little too much, for some reason it seems to be aging her.

Kelly on

Doesn’t she have a stylist that will fix her roots!!???? I think she has looked better. The hairstyle its self is nice, but its those roots that need fixing. She needs a fresher look somehow too. Maybe its the hair color or her makeup, but something needs to be fixed!!!

Rebecca on

The curly ‘do softens Madonna’s strong facial features, so I think it’s a good choice for her. It also seems to make her look a little younger. Now if she would just dye those awful roots! Ick.

Elda on

Yes I’m loving her new hair cut and her make up too, another classic beauty!!

Wendy on

I love her new hair style.
I think she looks great!

barbara goddard on

I like it. Roots could use some touch up, but hey, we’re all human.

mo on

Ilove Madonna but I hate her new do!

whoever on

Just as ugly as ever…..but then what did you expect for someone who has NEVER had a flattering hairstyle??

Dorothy on

She can’t go wrong when it comes to fashion. It looks good on her!

G on

Hair looks like a straggly poodle. Makeup – well – she was never anything more than average looking (certainly no beauty) – so guess it’s ok.

Word to the wise though – EAT A SANDWICH – you look older than need be – maybe if you had a little meat on your neck and face, you would look like the crypt keeper.

Karen on

Awful….she is simply not attractive at all!

Corinne on

It looks okay, not the best I think she should have a brighter makeup look.

Donna on

I think it’s scary.What was she thinking!

Melanie on

I think that Madonna looked the best when she did the video Papa Don’t Preach. Now she looks hard and hammered. She looks best with short hair instead of trying to look younger cause it just is not happening for her anymore. She just needs to learn to age gracefully.

nili on

sorry madonna, but – i hate it! it makes you look older, and it just doesn;t work.

Ivy on


Brown Sugar Sistah on

I don’t like the look at all. I agree it ages her and the makeup seems to wash her out. I have always thought she looks better as a brunette. She is fighting aging and eventually she will have to give in to Father Time, either by choice or by force.

Katie on

hair washes her out, roots are bad… i just don’t think she ever looks put together. she isn’t very attractive to begin with, but she could do way better than this.

Helen on

It must be really tricky for the stylist to dye the roots black like that. My science teacher has her roots dyed black, but every month they grow back blonde. As for the style , it looks like a birds nest. Oh, but she’s got it going on.

glenna jones on

Hey people…shes on the slippery sloop to 50. Give her a break…she looks great.

Pamela on

RETIRE ALREADY…old washed up dirty hag

Carol MaryAnne on

I’ve seen pictures of Madonna in In Style or other “star” magazines and she looks her best in long, almost shoulder-length hair with minimum make up. That’s when she’s her prettiest. With Madonna, less is more and….more noticeable.

I on

Madonna’s new do, looks great! I love it and she is always ahead of everyone. She truly inspires cutting edge fashion and beauty. LOVE IT!

susan on

she looks like mommie dearest…

Alley on

It fixs her age a lot better than many of her other hair style. I think she looks really good.

salamy on

i think she’s had better !!!

Nicholas on

I think its cute, realisticly its one photo we cant make a judgement. Shes never made a horrendous mistake, i feel this haircut is a new part of her shes doign what she always did and changed herself, she cut her hair got rid of the old and starting with the new and challenging somehting in herself liek we all do, personally her hair is fine.

Catherine on

It took me a few seconds to get past the dark roots to check out the hair style. I agree that the shade of blonde she’s sporting is not right for her skin tone… as for the style itself, it looks like someeone went to a lot of work for a style that is essentially very boring. But hey, I’m also thinking Madonna could care less what anyone thinks of her style, so two thumbs up for that! :)

gigi on

I like it,,but come one,,,it is not like she does not have the money to get her roots done, I hate that

paul on

she looks great, she’s always changing and experimenting which is so refreshing. she’s a beautiful woman. shame there’s no way we can see what the people who posted negative comments look like… actually on second thought it’s probably best that way lol

Roxanne on

Two Words, HAS BEEN

Helen on

I agree with you Roxanne, madonna is never been a beauty and now with her birds nest of a style and those ridiculous roots she looks really washed up. She sould certainly afford to have her roots done once a week. I know a girl at school who looks like Kelly Hu. Last year she decided to be blonde, I mean Pam Anderson blonde. She told us she gets her hair dyed every Saturday and we have never seen the slightest hint of a dark root.

Julia on

I like it. It’s feminine and sophisticated.

Roxanne on

Sophisticated ???? She looks like a skunk with that stripe down the middle.

Nancy Eldridge on

Madonna looks more like herself with this hairdo.

I like it a lot.
