EXCLUSIVE: How Britney Got Her New Look!

11/16/2006 at 01:00 PM ET

Call it Extreme Makeover: Britney Spears edition. Not only did she debut her new body on The Late Show, but she also underwent a three-day total makeover with top stylists Rita Hazan and Ramy Gafni. “It was a major transformation,” star colorist Hazan told PEOPLE. First up was a bright, blonde bob for Britney. “She called me and her hair was a medium brown and we took it to really pretty light golden blonde. It signifies how sexy she is!” When Britney’s hair was finished, Gafni reshaped her eyebrows and did her makeup. “I met with her the Monday she did Letterman, at about 3 p.m.” he says. “And she had to be in the car on the way to the show at 3:45!” Gafni was pleasantly surprised at how laidback Britney was. “Most celebrities I’ve done will hold the mirror up and want to see every hair you tweeze. “She said, ‘I like a smokey eye and dewy skin but otherwise, do whatever you want.'” And the end result? A brand-new Britney.

Her new hair style and make-up makes her look like she’s in her late 40’s. Britney spears is known as the young, talented, and needless to say SEXY super star. Please…BRING THAT SEXY BACK!

She looks really old in that picture, and her hair does her no good, she looks better with long hair and no bangs or it would look better if she swept them to the side.

Brittany is very pretty, but she does not look like herself here.Needs long hair back.

I love Britney and was excited to hear she FINALLY took out the trash, also known as “K-Fed”. She probably wants to shed her teeny-faze and become more of a sexy, but classy mother figure, and also wants to work it into her career also. With this hair cut, it would look good on someone else, but she is young, I think 25 (?? I can’t remember her age), and this hair cut makes her look too old. I do love how she went back to blonde, but unfortunately, in my opinion, I don’t like the hair cut. I’m not trying to be mean or anything, but I think these kind of hair cuts work with people who can dress the role as well. Her choices of fashion just doesn’t work with this type of hair cut, and just makes her look odd. She is still young, and she needs to be young and hip. She can be young, hip, sexy, classy and a mother all at the same time. When I saw her do this appearance on David Letterman, I just thought her fashion choice was just too much for her (her dress was way short). She’s trying to look grown up, but she always funks it up with something that just makes her look way off. I think she should go back to the longer hair and just do different styles from there, like the loose waves or something. Britney is a very pretty girl, and I’m so happy for her that she made a decision to dump that worthless “K-Fed”. Too bad she had children with him, because he is just a user and garbage. The things he is doing, trying to damage Britney, and this is his scheme to get publicity for himself. He’s got 4 kids and can’t even support them. He’s got to marry a suga-mama to get him some money. He can’t even support the 2 kids with Shar Jackson and he wants full custody of his kids with Britney, yeah right. Grow up Kevin Federline, get a real job, because you can’t rap. With the so-called “street cred” you did have, was with your ex-wife. This is a loser girls, please, keep your eyes open, so you don’t get scammed by the other hundreds of “K-Fed’s” out there.
