Jenny McCarthy Cuts Her Hair Into a Bob

New Year, new do? (Sorry, we couldn’t resist.) Jenny McCarthy is the latest star to ditch her extensions and go for a fresh chop, which she teased on Twitter and debuted on The View Monday. Before showing off her flirty, voluminous new bob on the show, McCarthy hinted at the new look with a photo (below) sharing a photo of her hairstylist about to make the cut. “Should I go short or short short or short short short?” she asked.

She didn’t go “short short short” (too bad; she’d look cute with a pixie!) but she did seem to be loving her “short short” hair on the show the next day. “I did this hairdo, by the way, because I was so tired of the extensions,” she told her co-hosts. “I just want to feel a little bit more authentic this year, more real.” She also noted that she’d lost her famously long nails — and joked that her breast implants may be next.

This morning, McCarthy showed her bob styled in a sleeker way as she posed with Bachelor host Chris Harrison, showing that her shorter hair is super-versatile. What do you think of her big new change? Should she go even shorter — or darker? Weigh in below!

All scissors should be confiscated from Hollywood stylists stat! Enough of the chopping. Jenny’s long gorgeous hair has always been a wonderful part of her look. This short stuff makes her look old.

I love seeing stars ditch the extensions. I don’t think the short hair ages her, whatever she is doing to plasticize her face is aging her.

That’s not THAT short.

Don’t like her gag

Tired of the long straight hair with part in the middle look so many women wear. Have some imagination people. You don’t all need to look the same…

Looks better; she’s too old for her previous look. Still can’t stand her and her anti-vaccine hogwash.

Since when were her nails famously long?

She looks better. I don’t know why women think that long hair looks good. I think it’s ok when you are young. I cut mine shorter years ago and it looks much better and more sophisticated.

Why should we care? She is a no-nothing wacko.


Really this is news? At least she didn’t go back to that awful haircut she has when she was seeing Jim Carrey. It made her look so angular. I also liked her long hair a lot better.
