Bye-Bye, Bob! Katie Holmes Goes Long Again -- Love It or Hate It?

03/11/2009 at 10:47 AM ET


Katie Holmes is no stranger to changing up her look, but for nearly a year the star has made shorter hair her signature style — from her banged bob to her pixie cut — and spawned a trend of stars and non-stars alike chopping off their locks. So we could hardly believe our eyes when we saw Katie hit the Valkyrie red carpet in Tokyo just hours ago with lush, full locks that look to be a full foot longer than the bob she’s recently favored. Only time will tell if this was a one-night look or if she’s back to long for a while, but we love that she never stops trying new styles! Tell us: Do you love Katie’s new longer hair? Or should she go back to a shorter look?

I think they did a pretty good job matching the extensions to her natural hair, but it’s hard to love the long hair knowing it’s not real. But I applaud (and envy!) Katie’s ability to change her hairstyle drastically overnight.

Katie looks great with either style!

The only thing about the wig that she is wearing is that it seems a bit darker than her natural color, which makes her look a bit harsher than she usually looks.

Her short hair said “i’m growing up” take me serious”…or “I am taking/making my professional, serius, responsible roll for Tom(this is not me)”….
before Tom she always had a young fresh spirit about her…her long hair says to me “I’m back!”.
She looks gorgeous either way :)
fyi: not toms fault just goes with finding yourself again after marrying and having kids!

I like it long..but this has to be extensions..there is no way she could have grown her hair out this fast.

Liv on

Love it! Hated the short “posh” hair. She looks beautiful and youthful with the long hair. Hope she keeps it.
