Miranda Lambert Cuts Her Hair Even Shorter

08/19/2014 at 11:01 AM ET

The last time we checked in on Miranda Lambert‘s hair, she was styling it in a prim and pretty “lob” in the vein of her “Mama’s Broken Heart” persona (pre-meltdown). But lately she’s been “zhuzzing” it up with a more piecey, rocker vibe — and now she’s taken it to the next level.

And of course, by next-level, we mean into full bob territory. “Fresh cut! Fresh color! “Somethin’ bout PLATINUM! Thanks @amandacraig12! Love you,” Lambert captioned the photo, which she posted to Instagram Monday night. The new color, of course, is in tribute to her most recent album and just-kicked-off Platinum tour — and we wonder if the cut is too. It’s got an edgy rocker vibe that goes with some of her sassier new songs (you’ve heard “Something Bad,” right?) with lots of flippy layers, long sideswept bangs, and a chin-grazing length shorter than she’s gone before.

One definite advantage of her new short cut? It’s sure to dry much faster than her old extensions would have after undertaking the Ice Bucket Challenge, which she did with Thomas Rhett this weekend. Oh, and it’s super-cute. That’s the other advantage.

It is called a trim people. Good grief what is up w/ hair watch this year. Saw her in concert a few days ago and she was AWESOME! Lets talk about her amazing talent once in a while People Mag! Anyway Miranda looks great as usual. :)

I love her, but wow that is hideously butch. Horrible. Looks like Blake had a little fun with scissors while seriously inebriated!

Hj on

Nooo.. not good. She needs long hair

julia on

Oh wow her make-up artists sure do earn their money, never seen her before like that… can’t believe she is only THIRTY YEARS OLD?!?!?

longlocks on

Looks like a $9.95 Supercuts cut! #stopthechop

JP on

Like her hair longer.

Keli on

I’m sorry but I think she looks terrible. She looks OLD!!!

Monica on

I sense a “break-up” story coming soon!

Bobi on

Miranda has such a pretty face that she can wear her hair any length and look good. Do LOVE her in short hair!

tcvajv on

It makes her look like Melissa Etheridge.

kelli on

Does anyone else see a resemblance to Melissa Etheridge in that photo???

Charli on

The pic on the left looks like a tranney from a Lifetime movie but the pic on the right is pretty.

You asked for my opinion so here goes – First the new do changes her looks (almost didn’t recognize her) 2nd, it’s not as attractive as her long hair 3rd if she wants a shorter do she should have gone to a really good stylist. The cut she has looks like she went to any old chop shop!. She is entitled to wear her hair anyway she wants, she’s the only one who has to like it (well, maybe Blake) and I agree her talent is what counts. But you asked and all my friends & I hate it!

Lisa on

Shorter hair is great with a beautiful face like hers, but this cut looks like a mess!

Well, she has that smile and that is one thing I love about Miranda,of course her talent is out of this world. This gal in photo with her is Blake’s hair stylist since he started The Voice. Miranda does look very tired and her hair looks thin, altho I probably would’nt have hair if I went thru what she goes thru. I just recently read Blake’s ex wife say she is just now getting her her back since the divorce said it came out in clumps. I mean thats 8 years ago. Stress is rough on the hair….

jean on

She’s not wearing any makeup. I hardly recognized her.

kathy from fla on

Not her best look. Love her anyway though. Let it grow long again.

jean on

Without the makeup artist, she pretty much looks like everyone else!

ninabug on

Losing weight, cutting hair short. Trying to look young for husband.

Zanne on

Nooooo—not good. She needs long hair. It was so pretty.

Esperanza on

Yikes. Why in the **** would she do that?!?!!! :(

Jennifer on

Her haircut really draws attention to that nose …. unfortunate.

Bunnie on

That’s not a bob, that’s a shag.

Ann on

Wow…she’s only 30? She looks much older. I don’t know if it the hair cut or what, but OY.

CallMeMaybe on

Yuck….been done by others and done much better. She looks like a soccer mom not a rocker.

Sara Smile on

I like it. I think it’s flattering on her.

Nanu 08 on

try BRUSHING it……looks awful

OmaMel on

I think it’s cute, but that’s not a bob. It’s a shag.

Stacey on

dont like it – she can grow it back though…

MystyOne on

I agree with you Keli, it’s aged her 10 – 15 years. Sooo not a good look!! Bring your long hair back Miranda!!

kbs on

cute but I’ve seen her look better – for some reason the cut does look a bit “cutchy” or like it;s just a really bad cut given the extreme difference in layer length. I have to agree that it does make her look older. Hard to believe she’s only 30 as it is but the new cut adds 10 years to her face

AnnS on

No worries to those that don’t like the cut, she’ll probably have extensions in before you know it.

lunaticlarry on

She’s adorable, sans make up and all!

Debbie on

What was she thinking.. Looked gorgeous before now she looks horrible.. Don’t these people look at themselves in the mirror?

ar on

She sounds like a hillbilly and now looks like one too. Yuck.

Beetle on

My husband said she now looks like one of the Indigo Girls.

Janelle Hachey on

wow people are mean… its just hair. and some poeple look old, big deal. your gonna look old too one day. people think the media is mean and the reason why people have issues, its just the general public.


PLEASE, whatever she oes to her hair, etc…she’ll still be UGLY!

kim on

bad life decision. terrible haircut. it looks like she’s trying to grow out a shorter cute which is always difficult and rarely looks like you want it too.

Buzz on

We’ll I am not a fan of her’s but love Blake

cathy delarue on

don’t like it likes like a bad hair cut and she looks older then she is

bryan on

I think at first it was Cameron Diaz she looks a little like her.

jdawg on

horrible :-( she is a hideous dog now. she looks like my f’n mom :-( and she’s like 65 or something. I bet ole man blake is ticked off now that his wife is a ugly fuggly dog.
