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?

The Worst ever, I agree she looks 50 yrs old now, and on top of that more liek a man then ever, she doesn’t have the sofest features to begin with, she needed the hair, the longer the better!!!

The color softens, fills out, brightens her face some, which removes some of the sharp angles. The color is different for her, but it is a plus. I do think the cut could be changed a bit for her, but then again, if it’s for her movie, to reflect a now time would not work for a then time.

It’s not the right cut or color for her and she needs to put some meat on her bones because that’s really unappealing as well.
