Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi Debut Similar Dos

Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de RossiAKM-GSI

What’s that saying about couples that look alike? It’s starting to apply to Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, who debuted matching hairdos in West Hollywood on Wednesday.

DeGeneres has always had a short cut, however, de Rossi was always known for her longer blonde locks. But her new look — even parted to the right, like DeGeneres’s hair — mirrors that of her spouse.

DeGeneres and de Rossi — together since 2004 — married in 2008. Tell us: Have you ever had a haircut similar to that of a partner or friend?

Wow she cut her long hair. Thankfully it grows back.

Miriam on

I LOVE them as a couple!

Tammy on

Um, People magazine, they’re not matching.

Love Ellen and Portia!

mrsmass on

how are those matching hair styles?

Rhonda on

Those are NOT matching do’s.

Jon on

Nice hair-do, Ladies, and no, I don’t think I’ve had a hair style similar to a Friend’s, maybe!

xyz on

Wow, remember how long it was in Ally McBeal? It was gorgeous then.

Have to say though, these aren’t really matching haircuts.

Ridgeitts on

I don’t think their hair styles look alike at all, but whatever. I like both styles though!

annie on

Hey People Magazine……I think you need to do some research on hair styles and cuts before writing another article on “matching hairdos”……the only thing similar here is the hair color.

Jen on

I don’t see how anyone can say these are matching “do’s”? Ellen’s, is more of a pixie cut and Portia’a is more of a female Bieber. They are similar but Portia’s is definitely longer and covers the ears.

Eli on

One is a bob and one is a pixie cut, and Ellen’s isn’t even parted. Amazing what passes for journalism nowadays.

Lily on

Love them as a couple, but I like Portia’s hair a little longer. It’s cute for summer though.

lanam on

Such a great couple !! I met Ellen years ago when she came back to New Orleans (where we are both from) -she is so sweet and hysterical. This is when her first tv sitcom came on — I think it was 20/20 they were doing an interview of where she use to work; and I happen to work in the building that she use to – back then it was a law firm. I worked for the Fed Govt., anyway she really was a hoot! I love Portia/Ellen as a couple, but their haircuts aren’t the same but I like Portia’s haircut (she’s gorgeous).

MB on

I must be missing something because the only similarity I see is with their hair color…

Steph on

I thought it was Renee Zellweger (sp?) in the pic with Ellen…lol Not the same hairstyle but it looks nice on her. Love Ellen:)

mary on

Thye both look great but I have to agree with most of the other comments- these are not matching hairdo’s- one is a pixie cut and one is a bob cut.

Donna Glaser on

Matching hairdo’s? I don’t think so!

smithie on

There is nothing similar or matching about these two haircuts, except blonde color. Ellen has short pixie, while Portia rocks bob

mickey on

Seriously? The only thing similar about the do’s is the color of their hair.

Sammi on

Those aren’t matching at all, People. Slow news day, huh?

cheryl on

Love them, love the hair-dos, but they are not matching.

marcelle on

these haircuts are not alike at all!!!!

Sophia on

Is that a joke, People? Their hair don’t match haha!!

P.S. I LOVE Ellen and Portia.

Grace on

That’s not Portia.

mommy2eandl on

Matching…Really???? What blind fool thinks these two different hair styles are the same? They are both blonde, that’s it.

Love Ellen and Portia!!

Charli on

Those are not matching dos. I like Ellen’s better. Portia must have been using extensions to make her look thicker because it looks thin.

Kitchy on

These are not matching or similar. They look great, but they’re not matching or similar.

Lily on

These are NOT matching dos

shizuma on

Ahhhhhh I love theeeeeeeeem ! Portia is really cute with her hair like that ^_^ Love Ellen ^_^ I LOVE THEM <3

Amanda on

Ellen should change her name to Allan. She looks like a man.

AAaaaaa on

Um, those dos don’t…match. But I guess we click on “matching dos” more than we would click on “Portia got a haircut.”

Anonymous on

I LOVE Ellen; think she’s so hilarious, and I find her and Portia to be a very refreshing couple. They seem down-to-earth and actually seem to be in love with each other. I think some straight couples in Hollywood (and otherwise) could take notes from these awesome two…

SusiQ on

All together now. . . .”these are not matching haircuts”

Anne on

<3 them! Both the cuts look amazing!

Ganan on

Now they both look like lesbians.

Sara on

Those aren’t matching hairstyles; however, the shorter style looks very nice on Portia.

dora on

People, I think you need to have your eyes checked. It’s a stretch to say they are “matching” hair dos. Portia looks better with long hair.

Guest on

In what world are these hairstyles similar???

Debbe on

This is news? Their hair is not matching by the way. I love Ellen and Portia, I could care less about their hairstyles.

susan on

This looks like a wig to me. Maybe she’s wearing it for a role?

rhonda on

yeah i can see the similarity between colours but really one is like a pixie cut the other is a blunt cut. but then again I am not a hairstylist maybe I need my eyes checked and the person who wrote this dribble has better eyes.

guest on

Portia grow it back. You looked so beautiful and fem with long hair. I always thought what made you a cute couple was that you were so feminine looking and Ellen was more tomboy looking. Love you both!

AGS on

uh, yah, NOT matching hair. really, PEOPLE??

Sarah on

Their haircuts aren’t even remotely similar, let along matching.

mary on

what i find shocking is how old Ellen is. She looks 10-15 years younger. I though she was in her 30’s.

Edie on

Even though I personally don’t agree with the life style, I really like them both.

Smart Potato on

Hey, People– get an editor:

“Hairdo” is the word. When one shortens a word, an apostrophe is used to replace the missing letters: So it’s a ‘dos, not dos”.

Kim on

Only thing similar is the color. Can’t believe Portia cut her gorgeous hair! If I had hair like that I’d never cut it!

Beth on

Ok ladies – it’s time for you to adopt because you would make awesome parents!

tip on

They aren’t married. God does not bless unholy unions.

Stephanie on

So glad you changed the title of this story. I agreed with everyone else who said “In what world are these haircuts matching?!” I honestly wouldn’t even same similar. Portia cut her hair off (which might be news) and Ellen has short hair. That’s pretty much where the similarities end.

sassy mommy on

matching dos?Did a man think that one up? Not matching. Just because she has short hair it’s not the same as a short man’s cut. Looks cute on her.

Mel on

How are they matching?? Ellen’s is an inch long and Portia’s much longer…

Cath on

Horrid Hair on both of them!

Ed on

tip you are wrong prove it

miles2009obrien on

I like Portia’s hair when it’s done in an updo. I love her new do though. It looks beautiful!

miles2009obrien on

I love it. Hope she keeps it long, even if it’s just for the summer. Ellen’s is a pixie do; Portia’s is a bob. Google bob to find out what style it is if you don’t know.

miles2009obrien on

Portia’s hair, People mag. isn’t even close to being Bieber look-a-like. I think you should get your facts rights before printing something like this.

Laura on

There is nothing similar about their haircuts.

Susan on

I dont think they look anything alike , other than the fact that they are both women.
Ellen tries to look like a man, but she doesnt have the right chromosomes.
Portia looks like she just rolled out of bed.

Gina on

They do seem happy together (just sayin…).

Missy on

Um, not matching at all- “even” parted on the same side, like half of the world LOL


How is that a matching hairdo?

Susie on

Matching apparently means they both have blonde hair… They do not have the same haircut or part.

cheffieque on

I love both of the hair styles – these two women are really beautiful. But … here is my question. Ellen wears men’s clothing – her suits and blouses all button left to right … she has a woman’s body and therefore needs a woman’s cut of apparel. Why is it so important to be a pretend-man and not simply a woman who loves women?? I think this is almost counterproductive to the openness she demonstrates.

Completely agree with those who are saying they are not matching hairdos. I don’t understand how anyone could say they are matching. Very strange.

Major on

How nice. I think Ellen is the man.

M Newcombe on

Where are the matching haircuts???? Reminds me of an way back commercial, “Where’s the beef?”

Barbara_i on

The hair-dos don’t match, seriously.

sweet pea on

omg, PEOPLE!! You’ve totally blown it! You didn’t notice that they’re BOTH — yes, BOTH — wearing sunglasses!! And they’re MATCHING, too! Oh. Er, um, sorry, no they don’t actually match. Like the haircuts. Epic fail, PEOPLE.
