Miranda Lambert Cuts Her Hair Into a Bob

You certainly can’t call her predictable: Just when we were perfecting our Miranda Lambert fishtail braid, the country superstar went and chopped it all off. Now we’ve got another Lambert do to add to our “must try” list.

Lambert, 30, appeared at a Nashville bash celebrating the platinum status of her single “Automatic” wearing a pretty pink ’50s-inspired party dress and a string of pearls (appropriately for a single that talks about how great things were in the good ol’ days) — plus a super cute, short new do. She teased it to the heavens to go with her retro “theme,” but it’s obvious that the chin-grazing cut and sweeping new bangs will work just as well when she runs out the door with a wash-and-wear style as they do when she breaks out the hairspray and rattail comb.

RELATED PHOTOS: Even more star hair changes worth checking out!

The star has had a big year, stylewise — she glammed up, slimmed down and started her own shoe line, and her new cut is the perfect punctuation to her head-turning new look. She’s experimented with shorter strands in the past before returning to extensions (helpful for the amount of hair whipping she does on stage), but this bob is so cute we hope she lets it stick around for a while.

Are you loving her new cut? Tell us in the comments!

Hate it

Tamara on

She’s gorgeous no matter what she does. I love it! Might be the inspiration I need to do the same. I was worried it wouldn’t look good as I have the same shaped face she does. But it looks great!

Kat on

Love it! She looks great !!

D on

OMG I love it!! So gorgeous and classy. Looks like a vintage country star hairstyle. Love love love.

megan on

Thank God she can afford extensions.

Julie on

Precious and chic! Very fresh looking”

George Clooney's Latest Beard on

I love having shorter hair…she looks cute!

Islandgal on

Love it. She looks beautiful and sophisticated rather than frumpy and unkempt.

Betty Tingley on

This cut makes her look old

Betty Tingley on

Makes her look old

Lacey on

She looks classier.

Guest on

Not cute. Love her but not that look.

Kim on

I give it 2 weeks until she has some extensions………..in 15 years it will be perfect, now it ages her.

donna johnson on

I love it so classy sexy just darn cute on her

laura on

She’s always looked MUCH older than she is – really, only 30? She would look good for mid 40’s if she got rid of that lump on the right side of her head.

Kathy on

I LOVE it!!!! It’s still very youthful and cute, yet it also gives her a more mature, sophisticated look!!!!!!! Good job Miranda!!!

mckenzie on

her old hairstyle was ridiculous and the new one is just as zany! what the? Is there a hedgehog under there?

epmmrp on

Why does anyone care if someone gets a haircut?

AJ on

Er, it’s a bit “Hillary Clinton” for her, I feel like…She would look cute with a bob that has a modern shape (see chopped, loose waves, etc.) but this shape is so outdated! I hope she can play with the shape to freshen it up a bit.

Charlotte on

Sorry, but short hair on women is just not sexy. Short hair is cute & fun, but definately not sexy. Ask any man.

pat on

So adorable! It suits her well

Yuck on

30 going on 60 white ppl age poorly

Yuck on

30 going on 60. White ppl age poorly

cocomom on

very pretty for her face shape/features. looks marilyn monroe chic.

ImALadyToo on

She looks cute; she just needs to learn how to subtly get some volume on top without it looking like a bump. I like it!

ImALadyToo on

Anyone who thinks this make her look 60 or older, you’re nuts. Shorter hair usually makes you look younger. I think she looks adorable.

MO on

Very cute but I think she is so much prettier with long hair. Her hair to do what she pleases.

lisa on

its not styled well …very frumpy …and I generally like short bobs like this

Tena on

NO! No, no, no

emily on

It makes her head look more square than it already is!

She'ree on

Beauty shines through from the inside out. I loved when Miranda was rough and rowdy and sexy and I love this transformation after the weight loss and her personal style, more feminin and demure. I think she looks stunning!

Hanks Tranny on

She looks like a 45 year old soccer mom with the minivan.

Nancy Tubbs on

Great job Miranda! You made yourself look like a
40+ year old soccer mom! Why would you do that to yourself? Makes you look much older which is not always a good thing.

julie on

yuck. makes her look like an old lady.

Carolyn on

Nice! I like it!

Lindsay Garcia on

I think she looks adorable! I love it :)

jujubee on

She has the squarest face i have ever seen! Not being mean, but her face is odd looking. An incredibly large forehead too. She looks better with long hair. Rumer Willis and her get my vote for Most Oddly Shaped Faces….

Carter on

It looks awful. Why are so many in entertainment feeling the need to cut off their pretty long hair. This is not a good trend. Please grow it back Miranda! Only like one percent of women have the facial structure and neck to pull off short cuts. The rest look just plain bad. And those pixie cuts are just horrid. They make Ann Hathaway and others look like a young boy. The cut has seriously hurt her career. Just saying.

Becca on

She just took her extensions out.

Carter on

Awful haircut. Just Awful.

Carter Ben on

Her hair looks awful.

Samantha on

Cute cut, but it makes her look older.

booboochile on

A little Stepford wife looking to me. But I’m not a fan of hers anyway.

Nanu 08 on

Looks fresh…….

Glen on

I think Faith Hill had this haircut …in 1996.

wan on

She is so cute, I think it makes her looks older. For summer she will love it being shorter.

Bhavana on

It’s kinda cute for the summer. I just think that it needs to be styled differently. She’s a cute lady no matter what.

Tigs on

Probably could be a cute hair style if it was styled different, whats with that weird hump on the side of her head?

Mandy on

You can hardly say she “chopped it all off” when she simply just took her hair extensions out.

Faye on

Just what she needs. A short bob to highlight her puffy fat face.

dancer92136 on

It is cute, but I love her signature long locks

charlotte on

Love the look on her!

tinamarlin on

Something about her always leaves me cold. She appears to be very clingy and jealous, but I can’t figure why. That husband is not attractive IMHO.

The bob beats that ‘kuntry hair’ she’s been a’sportin’ for so long.

tinamarlin on

Faye, I agree. She also has a short puffy body and she doesn’t dress well for her body style. The short tight dresses just accentuate the problems.

And Mandy, I suspect you’re right about the extensions. They’re just SO overdone with the entertainment set.

tinamarlin on

BTW when I clicked on this article, I thought it was ADAM LAMBERT with a bob. Come on, AOL. Learn to write proper ‘headlines’.

julia on

Oh No now she just looks like any other middle aged soccer mom

Nicole on

She is such a beautiful woman but I don’t like that at all. She looks like an older soccer mom. Like someone else said, glad she can afford extensions.

mihunny on

Horrible. She looks like a middle-aged suburban house mommy turned real estate agent.

snakegriffin on

…and I always thought she was in her 40s

Kathie on

i don’t like it

Kelly on

The cut looks great on her! It also makes her look younger.

soph on

In what way does “Miranda” look like “Adam”? Get your old lady eyes checked.

Dls on

Boo :(

Babalu1 on

Bet Blake hates it! Meh . . . but she is still very attractive. However, I did like the longer hair on her.

hopevarnedoe2013 on

deb on

Makes her look older- serious
