She may not have waited for a red carpet to debut her new do, but Tamera Mowry-Housley’s new haircut is just as buzzworthy as the ones we were loving at last night’s Golden Globes. The actress took to Twitter to share a look at her brand-new do, and it’s a major departure from what we’re used to for her.

It’s hard to find stars who embrace their natural curls — after all, curly hair can be a little unpredictable, which is a celebrity’s enemy in a world full of paparazzi. Mowry-Housley herself has often worn her hair long and wavy or ironed straight. For curly girls who look to the red carpet for hair inspiration, it can get frustrating not to see their hair texture represented. Well, that may change with Mowry-Housley’s new haircut, which she alluded to at Twitter before the big reveal:

She name-checked stylist Shai Amiel, who calls himself the curl doctor, before posting the big reveal on Instagram (above). “Love my big chop…love my curl doctor @shaiamiel You did it again!” she wrote. And did he ever. She’s got the curly hair holy trinity — definition, shine and shape — and she knows it.

How great does Mowry-Housley’s new cut look? And can we get the number of that curl doctor?

I like when people wear their natural hair, but oddly enough, it looks more like a wig. It looks like she has a receding hairline. Agree with others that she needs a bit of hair on her forehead.

Not great.

She looks so beautiful natural. I love this hair cut on her.

Tamera is gorgeous, but that new look isn’t great. Curls are nice, but what she’s got going on doesn’t look good. Actually, her curly hair in “Sister Sister” was a million times better than this.

Those aren’t her natural curls if you recall her curls from her teenage years. They are heat damaged from straightening, as evidenced by the 2 straight pieces on the floor. The cut by the curl doctor is not layered properly for curly hair.

Tootsie on

It looks like a polyester wig that is nothing like the little bit of her natural hair that you can see.

Guest on

I don’t recall her hair every having such a loose curl pattern. If anything I remember both sisters had very curly tight coily hair which is beautiful! Maybe she’s go back to that!

angie on

waaaaaay better shorter but where in the heck did that massive forehead come from???

Pam on

That does look like a wig! And I agree with others about the big forehead, that’s probably why she had bangs before, to cover it up.
