Should Eva Longoria Cut Her Hair?

11/07/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

Eva Longoria looked to be debuting a new sleek bob at the Harsh Times premiere in L.A. on Sunday night, but she was only faking it! When the star turned around, a long, low ponytail was revealed— a neat trick to knock off for those with long hair who want a shorter do for the night. But, we think Eva actually looks fantastic with the simple bob, especially as a change from the big hair she sports on Desperate Housewives. Tell us what you think: Should Eva cut her hair short? Or do you like her long locks better?

Mmmm dont like it. A lil to Victoria Beckham.

emma on

she looks like posh, i hate it!

DuAnn on

No, I think she should keep it long!!! :)

Christian on

I dont like it. She looks really good with long hair. Why mess with it?

jr on

Looks much better long! I really dislike the bob. And I agree – it just makes her look like Posh. Yuck!

rakel on

She should not cut her hair and the sleek look is a bad look for her, also so out.

Milly on

I think that Eva is fabulous but what is she trying to do? This blond look of hers washes her out – I hate it. She looks 100% better with the darker hair color she had before. Maybe this bob would look ok if her hair was darker. Please Eva go back to your darker hair color.



Andrea on

Needs to be longer and darker. It’s a little brassy lookin.

Susan on

It seems that we are all in agreement. I do not like this hairstyle on Eva. It does not look good with her face – it really just elongates her oval shape. The color is not good either with her darker skin tone.

Stacy on

I think she looks terrible with short hair. It makes her not so pretty facial features more visible!

funfun100 on

I think she looks a lo prettier with longer her- she looks more glamorous and classy.

Michele on

I think she looks gorgeous with long hair. Short cuts are cute, but not for her style.

Adriana on

I don’t like it. Eva looks gorgeuos with darker hair.

donna on

OMG she looks terrible in this photo…she is normally kinda pretty i like her with dark hair not brassy hair and long for her is MUCH better

Pam on

Hate it. I also hate the new color. She looks 100% better with darker hair and longer.

Britt on

She looks good no matter what length her hair is.

Andrea on

Does anyone think she resembles Cher in the olden days? Maybe I’m just imagining things. Ah well. :)

Celestina on

Yeah!!! Eva should have darker hair and eyebrows because she looks so unnatural!!! I’d really love to have darker complexion and hair, so she should be proud of her natural looks.

Brenda on

Hope Eva reads this blog—if she does, she’ll be eighty-sixing the hair color and the short bob look! Pretty awful!

abby on

nope keep it long.. and she is going to light..she should keep her hair dark!

Liz on

She should keep it long…it’s more flattering.

AnnieM on

Don’t cut it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Run away from the light!



Jennifer on

No, keep it long, Eva.

Julia on

NOPE. BUT she should color her roots!!! YUK

Kay on

Eva, you look good no matter what! Your just beautiful…

megan on

shes ugly, and this makes her look uglier!

Elizabeth on

Don’t cut it. She has beautiful hair.

micheleeee. on

I dont know about the hair, but

Those eyelashes are seriously going to attack me!!



sharon on

cut it? who cares? but for goodness sake, cover up those roots!

Natalie on

victoria beckham a bit much??
First i think that she should cover up her roots by sticking to a dark colour.
second, the short bob with no layers doesn’t really frame her face well.
a third a centre part on her does not look good!! very few can pull off a centre part (and she is not one of them!)

liz on


Listerino on

Am I the only one that thinks Eva is plain? What is all this hype about her? I don’t get it.

Jen Stone on

She looks good no matter what she does to her hair.

becci on

i think eva luks gr8! its an insult to say she luks lyk vic ‘cos clearly she’s ugly and eva isnt! plus eva has a career she made herself not lyk vic who is only famous ‘cos of david.

night on

Who is this horrible woman who seems to have her makeup done at the local funeral home? She is hideous, and would be with ANY hair style. Loose the eyelashes honey, and find a makeup artist that did not train at the “SIX FEET UNDER” school of beauty.

Andrea on

Her eyelashes look like spider legs.

There is not one thing that looks natural about her.

Stacey on

Bad color choice. Length is fine but prefer it longer. Why is it so bad if she looks like Victoria Beckham? Victoria is a pretty woman, too. And who made the rule that just because your spouse has done something to make him/her self famous that the other must “do” something to make themselves famous, too?

Lale on

I think the long ponytail was an extension anyway. She uses them in DH, and she has shown up at events with shorter hair. Maybe just take the weave out for a while to let the scalp rest so she can damage it again with some haircolor. Oh the glamour of Hollywood!

Jen on

Why oh why does evey latina in hollywood try to go blond?Jessica Alba had beautiful dark hair. And she went blond too. It looks bad bad bad. Be proud of your exotic latin beauty. It’s like is a natural blond like …hmm…who’s a natural blond…Anyone if a natural blond dyes her hair black!

Nothing against white girls, but being white and skinny and blond is not the only ideal of beauty!! Hollywood b******t It comes in all shapes and colors.

star277 on

nice, but she has to cut it a little bit shorter, perhaps she shoud have a bob and shave her nape

Michelle on

I think Eva is absolutely beautiful!!! The short bob is cute but the longer hair on her is stunning!!

Jamie on

I think Eva’s look is the best when she had it long and a little bit darker than what it is now!

Jim on

Long Baby!

A Fan on

Gorgeous. With this hair style she’s as beautiful as she could possibly be!

Anna on

I loved it so much better when it was long…I guess its ok…NOT REALLY!!!!

LeeAnn on

i dont like this look at all she looks better with long hair most deffinatley but then again she really isnt all that pretty to me

heather on

i love her with her long hair and deep tan look. very beautiful!!!!!

Kelsea on

I think she’s beautiful but with long hair Eva is Gorgeous
and she should accent her features!!! Love U EVA!!!

Natalee on

I think she is very beautiful, but not with a short bob cut. She should keep it long. She has very long, sexy, sleek hair. Thank goodness she really didn’t cut it.

samara on

I think she looks good with her hair the way it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1She looks beautiful

inna on

T~ on

i think an inbetween would be ok, i think a bob would age her

amanda on

she looks too much like marcia i hate short hair on anyone

Clarice on

I can’t see anything but those hideous fake eyelashes.

Nathalie Eva on

WOW!!! ELIZABETH what is the matter with you she is the most beautiful woman in all Hollywood…ur justpissed because she is more attractive and moer beautiful than you are…I think she looks the best with long and darker hair but still she is beautiful..:D

Cristine on

She should keep it long and wear it in ponytail.

cris on

I think she should keep it long and wear a ponytail.

stacy on

she should go shorter

Loli on

It is better with dark hair…

freddy on

I love Eva with short hair. She did the right thing cutting her hair

Valeriya on

Absolutely not! Long locks soften Eva’s face and make her look glamorous, while a shorter do seems bland rather than sophisticated

Nicoletta on

I loved her long brunette locks. I think too many people have the “Posh” look. I don’t agree with her decision.
