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?

horrible she looks so OLD! she needs extentions ASAP!

The haircut is okay, but the blonde color makes her look washed out in the face. Stick to being a brunette Hilary, as blondes DO NOT have more fun! lol

Kelly on

This new haircut and color makes her look much older and does nothing for her!

Valerie on

She aged about 20 years with this cut
does she not have a stylist?? If she does, fire that person and if she doesn’t – get one FAST!!!

barb on

Looks OLD. What stylist let her do this to herself?

Julie on

It’s so kicky! I love it!

I honestly think it’s the style itself and not necessarily the cut. If she swept the bangs over and added darker tones, she’d look much younger. I’ve had haircuts that aged me, but with the right color and styling products, it can make you look hot. This style doesn’t suit her; the cut could. Has potential.

um… no.. not for her… hate it….she already has serious man like qualities… this cut just makes it look so much worse

This haircut is a disaster on hilary! it makes her look old.

I hate it!
Don’t like it at all.
I think she looks better with a medium to long hair style.

It’s very similar to her hair cut in the movie “Boys don’t cry”.
