Kristen Wiig Cuts Her Hair Into a Sleek, Chic New Bob

Kristin Wiig BobStartraks; Splash News Online

It’s not quite the remarkable series of wigs she wears in The Spoils of Babylon, but Kristen Wiig showed off an almost equally buzzworthy new look at the L.A. premiere of her IFC series: The actress is now rocking a new sleek, blunt and chin length bob.

Though Wiig has mixed up her hair a bit in the past (she’s been blonde and brunette, straight and wavy) she’s been sporting the same long layers down her back for some time now, so a fresh color and major cut is a big change for her. She showed off a shoulder-grazing chop right before Christmas, but the star seemed to have gotten the haircut bug — her new do is even an inch or two shorter.

RELATED PHOTOS: What did Wiig (and your other favorite stars) wear on the red carpet last night?

We love the star’s naturally loose curls, but her new carefully coiffed look really shows off the rich auburn hue she’s wearing these days, as well as her pretty eyes and delicate cheekbones. In fact, we love it so much, we may just overlook the fact that she didn’t wear that crazy Spoils of Babylon wig on the red carpet. There’s always The Tonight Show.

Do you like Wiig’s new cut? Are you excited for her show? Let us know below!

The bob suits her. She looked prettiest in “Bridesmaids” with that wispy bob.

A huge improvement!

Liz on

Maybe it’s just a wiig. Sorry, couldn’t help myself!

Courtney on

She talked about wanting Kelly Ripa’s hair cut when she went on Kelly & Michael. I guess she decided to go through with it. It looks good.


Love it…she looks younger and refreshed!

No one needs to “weigh in” on a person’s hair cut, celebrity or otherwise. People magazine used to be about what individuals accomplished whether famous or not. Now it’s nothing more than a platform to judge people on their physical appearances. It is superficial, juvenile, and dangerous.

whatever on

much better

chloe on

gymluv on

Makes her look 10 years younger

fanfaren on

She can shave her head or whatever and it still doesn’t take away the fact the woman is talented and I’d rather discuss that than her hair seeing how we aren’t discussing any men’s doos (okay if she shaved it it might take a way from her acting but then there’s always wigs. what I mean is focus on what’s important instead of her hair. geesh)

Hotgal on

Sorry, but it doesn’t do anything different to her features.

momma on

It’s adorable and I love her as an actress!!

HateShortHair on

I think she looks like a midwest housewife. Her long hair was so pretty and shiny. This is so. . . . plain.

wilson on

Never mind the cut, what about the COLOR? What would be wrong with REAL, natural color instead of color from a box or bottle? She is such a cool woman.

Kiwii on

She needs more than a haircut! Yowzers!

Lala on

It looks great on her! But why is the most unflattering before picture, always chosen?

slemon on

love it.

Auspicious Kitten on

Now it’s time to weigh in? Puhlese!

Louis on

She looks younger with her hair shorter and light eye makeup. Terrific!

Jenny on

I like the bob but i wish she went back to blonde, it suits her better.

Miranda on

The short hair trend makes them all look so old and masculine. Nothing feminine about it. Simply awful on her.

suzy diamond on

Love it. Would love to see her hair a little bit lighter in color.
