Hilaria Baldwin Gets New Bangs to Celebrate the New Year With Her New Baby

Hillary Clinton isn’t the only famous person to brave the new year with bangs. Alec Baldwin’s wife Hilaria also kicked things off with some fresh fringe. Is it too early to declare 2014 “the year of the bang?”

The new mom traded in her signature long hairstyle for a blunt cut with bangs. And it looks like her stylist Takashi Matono had some fun with a flat iron, as Baldwin sported pin-straight strands, a departure from her natural wavy body.

“New Year, new baby, new hairdo @takashimatono,” she captioned the below photo on Instagram.

2013 was a busy year for Baldwin, who welcomed daughter Carmen Gabriela in August and continued to expand her fitness brand into her first ever pregnancy exercising DVD titled Fit Mommy-to-Be: Prenatal Yoga. (And of course, she starred in the video as well!)

I HATE selfies. People look so self-important in them. Yuck.

Guest on

She looks like Salma Hayak in Savages. She is a pretty lady. So that’s a plus.

But I’ve been thinking about getting bangs and it seems to be bangs or Botox? This is not about Mrs.Baldwin, I just wanted to see people’s feelings on bangs in general.

jcsfny on

She looks like Cher!

sara on

she plain and simple is VILE

Ms Kris Clark on

1. NOT news & 2. last time I looked at my calendar it is 2014

jennifer laurens on

Ii have to say that I’m a little tired of all the attention she’s gotten just because she married a celebrity. Seriously? Guest hosting on The View = exercise video promoted on talk shows. None of this would have happened had she not married well. Ugh,

xxxx on

Can you imagine if she didn’t marry Alex she still be teaching yoga at the Y

angee steiner on

maybe i am just cranky because i am tired, but…did anyone even know who she was before she married a celebrity? and who cares about her haircut? there is really nothing else going on?

imeantit on

She’s narcissistic, a nut job ,and completely irrelevant outside of the fact that she married that beast. Must be a slow news day for PEOPLE to care about her or her bloody haircut…..NEXT.

imeantit on


stef on

Better not criticize her, she’ll go running to Alec and have him beat everyone up.

Boo on

Really? She’s a “famous person.”
Wow – just grabbing at straws for celebrities now, huh?
The barely-known wife of Alec Baldwin is NOT a “famous person.”
Enough already.

Cat on

Big deal! He straightens her hair and cut bangs! Not impressed.

Leigh on

Meh. That’s what I think of her bangs. I am completely uninterested in this person. She isn’t unattractive, but she totally looks 40-ish which is unfortunate for a twenty-something. Oh, and the reason I clicked on this story is because I hoped the bangs were horrible, actually (to go along with her horrible husband). Just meh, though.

Sarah on

Alec and her are always pissed bc paparazzi takes pics of their daughter but yet Hilaria posts pics of her on instagram. Can u say hypocrites?

Irrelevant on

Nobody would know who she was had she not married a Baldwin. She is evil, plain &I simple and a troublemaker to boot.

guest on

She is only on here b/c she married a celebrity, who is old enough to be her father.. I don’t think she’s any different than a street walker, just sleeping with him for fame and money, which clearly she’s getting.

janie on

I love it! She’s a beautiful lady anyway.. It’s really flattering and cute!

jabba on

Ugh, bangs only look cute on little girls and boys, adult woman look ridiculous with them, plus having them when I was a kid, they’re a pain to mess with and are very annoying.

MrsJAZ on

Why is she news ? Other than marrying Alec Baldwin, what has she done ? She taught yoga ??

Peggy Smith on

It’s so annoying that a simple, unknown yoga instructor marries a so-called “celebrity” and that somehow instantly qualifies her to be a correspondent on Extra. Only in America …

carlyscarlettrose on

I think she’s gorgeous and seems nice. But I agree she is only famous because of her husband. But to call her “a narcissistic nut job” seems a bit extreme. I’ve known real narcissists and they are much more than simply vain. They are manipulative and dangerous.

Charli on

They want the paps to leave them alone but can’t stop posting pics of themselves and their baby. Ridiculous

Sam on

Golddigging non-important woman – why are you wasting words on something like that People ?

Paris on

She is gorgeous, looks like Ashley Judd!

Paris on

Gorgeous lady with either hairstyle.

Jac on

Such hateful, jealous people on here. You don’t even know this person!

TLC on

i like the old hairstyle ,looks younger with her.

Nancy on

Selfies . . . we live in such a NARCISSITIC world that “selfies” is now a word in the dictionary! GOD help us all.

Smithy on

I tried following her on Twitter for a bit and couldn’t take it very long. She’s very self important and full of herself. She and Alex are a perfect match.

just my opinion... O_o on

Noooo. Looks like a kids hairstyle in my opinion. She looked mature before. Gorgeous. The bangs hide her face too. Like I said…just my opinion. I never understand why some women get hairstyles you would expect their kids to have.

Kat on

This woman is not a celebrity so quit writing stories about her. Just because she’s married to that has been hot-head doesn’t make her more important than any other new mom in NY. Blech!

Sloane on

a lot of women who suddenly start wearing bangs when they’re at a certain age are trying to camoflauge cosmetic surgery or botox. the drastic change in their hair they credit to their more “youthful” appearance- and the trick usually works
not saying that she’s done it- or that Hillary Clinton has done it- but the sudden change to bangs usually prompts me to take a closer took at their eyes/eyebrows etc.

Sloane on

the switch to bangs suddenly makes me look closer at the eye area- a lot of women credit their more youthful look to getting bangs and people believe it- rather than perhaps notice their more recent cosmetic surgery or round of botox injections. Not saying she did that- or Hillary Clinton either- but it makes one look a little. And it wold be something Hillary might do to keep a more youthful appearance for when she runs for the White House- and it would have to be done early enough to not draw suspicion. Notice how John Kerry used to look a bit craggy a few years ago- and look at him today- something done there for sure… in a good way- so maybe he’ll take another run at it too

Susan on

I LOVE bangs……on little girls !!!!! Not a fan of them on grown women.

Jada on

She looks like a witch.

Kabi on

Why would this story ever even be considered as the basis for an article? Nothing against her, but how is this considered newsworthy or in any way even interesting?

Mommie Dearest on

This woman is a phony. “Hilaria” = Hillary Hayward-Thomas. Phony accent, too.

Jerry on

Now she’s a celebrity?

Val on

I get why people are hating on her but i think people need to get there facts straight. Prior to marrying Alec Baldwin she was pretty well known and still is on the NYC fitness scene. She has had her own Yoga studio for a while. I’m glad she’s having the opportunity to go more mainstream with fitness videos and such. But I will say, this isn’t news. Obviously, these endorsements and being a special host on Xtra would not have happened if she hadn’t married Alex Baldwin.

Shannon on

The new haircut of the wife of a celebrity constitutes a story on People? They have stooped to a new level in my opinion. Give me a break!

blair on


Jackie Butler on

Positively chic ! Adorable! Exotic even! I want your guy stylist!!

cucu on

Who cares about this woman? Who is she anyway? So tired of seeing her face everywhere when she is no celebrity just married to one.
