Melissa Gilbert is really shaking things up lately!

First, the Little House on the Prairie star got hitched (in a bold red dress, no less!) and now she’s showing off a fun new do on her Instagram.

RELATED PHOTOS: See even more big Hollywood hair shakeups here!

She even gave a sneak preview moments before the big reveal, posting a pic of her ponytail on the ground with the caption “Bye bye hair!” Next up was a glimpse of her giddily laughing (above), and finally she shared a clear shot of the new look, accompanied by a big smile.

We will go ahead and announce that we love the new bob and bangs on her, but we want to hear what you think too. Tell us in the comments!

She looks wonderful! Good for her! She has had a lot of ups and downs…I am happy to see that big beautiful smile!

And in other important news, I have a pimple on my arse. Really, unless her hair all fell out or she had a baby and named it Southeast, I don’t think she’s front page news.

Considering the fact that the other “headlines” involve a dog who likes hockey and Snookie’s gut, this IS People’s idea of news.

Like the cut. I actually did the same thing myself earlier this year – cutting off and donating 18 inches, and have been just as happy about it as she is. I don’t know that I’m keen on the lighter color, though…

I hope she donated that ponytail to locks for love!!

Looks good.


Her hair looks great. It’s nice long but a change to something fresh is always fun. Oh, to all the haters – Please turn on MSNBC or CNN if you want serious stories. Celebrity hair, make-up, clothes, going out to dinner and taking out the garbage are all part of the People magazine topics and pictures. Get over it!

I love it – much better than that old long hair look she had.

Love the hair! It’s too bad she destroyed her face years ago with unnecessary and poorly done plastic surgery.
