Hilary Swank's New Blonde Do: Love It or Hate It?

She may be notoriously adventurous with hair change-ups, sporting a buzz cut for her Oscar-winning role in Boys Don’t Cry, and even letting Oprah chop off her locks for charity, but when Hilary Swank turned up at last night’s Joyful Heart Foundation Gala in N.Y.C., she left us speechless. Gone was the dark brown bob she’s sported for months — replaced by a short honey blonde crop, complete with matching light eyebrows. Of course, this is likely for her latest role as legendary aviatrix Amelia Earheart in Amelia, but we still can’t get over how different she looks! Tell us: Do you love Hilary’s new hair? Or do you prefer her as a brunette?

Unfortunately, she added about 20 years to her look by getting that hair cut and adding that colour. Not cute!

Hate it! She looks close to her 50’s with that cut

Monny on

Oh no, she looks like a middle aged congresswoman or something. This is not a flattering ‘do.

She looks like a poor version of Princess Di. Dated and old. Plus, could she please start eating again? The starvation look is not helping.

Just awful… she looks about 50 years old with that cut.

I love Hillary, but thing about her is… she doesn’t have delicate features, and she’s pretty muscular. A short cut doesn’t look “pixie” on her – it makes her look older and a little unfeminine.

Danielle on

She definately does not look her age, it is funny how one hair cut or style change can make someone look older than they are. It is not a look for her.

Yamine on

I just love the pixie. But on the wrong woman it can be disastrous! And she looks bad in it. She looks better with longer, dark hair!

CS on

Hate it….It makes her look old.

Robin on

Totally horrible. She looks 20 years older. I sure hope it’s for a movie because she’s crazy if she did this to look good!

Ohioan on

I like the idea of a pixie cut on Hilary, but the execution is a bit off on this one. The bangs need to be a bit shorter and the whole cut needs to be texturized better so it looks funkier instead of middle-aged.
