Two television stars who are equally well-known for their luxurious wavy manes as their jobs: Tori Spelling and Maria Menounos. Two television stars who are now rocking much shorter but equally sassy haircuts: Tori Spelling and Maria Menounos. Sorry we didn’t tell you to sit down, but now that you’ve processed this information, let’s proceed.

First up: Spelling, who chopped off her platinum-blonde chest-length extensions (or part-time shoulder-length cut) for a platinum-blonde chin-length bob. Even more noteworthy: Spelling did it herself, according to this Instagram caption. “Here’s my new hair cut.I chopped it all off myself last nite at midnite. #FutureHairStylist #ShortHairDontCare #MultitaskingMama” Spelling wrote along with a photograph of her new cut. It takes a brave woman to take scissors to her own do, but no one ever called Spelling a chicken — and frankly, it looks pretty good to us.

Menounos also went significantly shorter (though she did hers with the aid of a salon — and she confessed to being much more scissors-shy than Spelling was). “What are we thinking about the new shorter do? Needed to cut the dead ends! @ninezeroone @nikkilee901 @riawnacapri thnx for ur patience-I was so scared to do it!” she wrote as the caption to an Instagram debuting her shorter cut. She then took the cut for a spin in NYC, and as much as we loved her always on-point long waves, braids and updos, we’ve gotta say, her new cut feels super fresh.

So? Thoughts?

Ok, I am not especially a fan of Spelling, but I have to be honest. Her hair is very pretty! I love her new short bob, and I am impressed that she did it herself! Good job, Tori.

Tori does weird stuff, no surprise. Sad though, she looked so much better with long hair. Maria on the other hand…what was she thinking? Another chop happy stylist having their way with someone who had gorgeous long hair. You don’t have to cut a foot of your hair off to get rid of split ends. Wonder if E! made her do that? E! doesn’t seem to allow their women to have long lovely hair. They all have hatchet heads!

I guess Tori must be struggling financially if she had to chop off her own hair and as for Maria, I don’t care what she does. I found her reality show soooo annoying.

I dont’ believe for a second that Tori cut her own hair.

Tori Spelling – she look like a dude, her body looks chewed and her hair looks glued.

Debbie on

Oh…you mean she took out her extensions?

Kiki on

Maria may have cut her hair. But Tori took her extensions out. When hair is that blonde…’s usually fake.

DaisyMoon on

Maria is so pretty that any style looks good on her.
Tori on the other hand…

Has all of Tori’s reality shows flopped so she can’t afford a professional haircut? Anyway, uneven and messy hair styles seem to be popular at the moment.
