McPhee debuted a piece-y chin-length cut with ombré tips and face-framing highlights. Where her old do was very movie-star glamorous, the new look is more “L.A. hipster.”

We have to say, we’re glad the star is switching it up for spring. But tell us: Do you like McPhee’s new look?

Some women wear short hair really well and those that do often look younger and better with their hair kept short. Unfortunately, I don’t think McPhee is one of them. If she likes it, that’s really all that matters, but I don’t think it suits her.

It’s cute. It is just hair and if she wants to cut it, so what. I don’t understand why everyone is always so negative over things that really shouldn’t matter.

Gees, maybe she just took her extensions out. Regardless, it’s her head. She can wear her hair any friggin way she wants to.

Cute. I love that women are starting to get rid of the long locks and extensions and do something different. Very refreshing!

I have had my hair that short! Never again. I prefer my long and thick hair thank you! If she likes it good for her. I just find it ages her extremely.
