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.

I think she has too much make-up on. She is a beautiful girl and the make-up makes her skin look old and dull. I like her haircut, but I like the brunette color better.

Her make-up looks terrible. She said she wanted a dewey look, but it looks dull—it makes her look old. She’s not very pretty.

Umari on

Wow. She looks pretty good. Except that carpet on her head. It looks totally unnatural. It’s almost as if someone just threw it on her head and hoped it would fit.

Jessie on

Her hair looks way to flat, thin and fake. Not a good style for her.

MCT on

She didnt cut her hair, it is fake, just like lindsey Lohan had it a few months back.. But she still has her her..She still look amazing though, compare to when she was with that gold-digga kevin..

This styling is for a suburban housewife-Too boring! Brit needs to get more snazzy and a younger stylist. The wig looks like they just dumped a bottle of store bought hair coloring on it, and the cut is suited for someone with thicker hair. I actually believed she went on as a surprise without getting touched up by the make-up artist when I saw the show. She needs airbrushed makeup and more depth to her color (hair, make-up,clothing fabric) and fake eye lashes. Also, a little “Preparation H” under the eyes, or a celebrity worthy pricy equivalent, is also needed for Brit to look her best.

I dont like her new look! She looks better with natural long hair! She seems to have thin out too much on the right places. She seems to be focusing too much on her past youthful, single life and look but I really think she should spent the energy and time with her two infants. I don’t understand how she can be in Miami, NY, Las Vegas all in a week. Where are her kids? How can you party with a newborn? Besides leaving it to your nanny, don’t you rather spend it with your new baby! She has all the money in the world to retire and take it easy! She was even wearing a belly shirt after 2 kids and recent C Section – Thats MAgic!

She looks old.

I just wanted to add that since I’ve seen pictures of Britney out with Paris Hilton and stories of her taking her pants off at a club, my newly earned respect for Britney (for dumping Kevin) is fading – fast. I was really hoping that Britney would still blow us away with great music and performances while not forgetting the fact that she has 2 babies at home. Going out and partying and getting drunk seems immature, and while she is only 24, she needs to be a responsible mom… Still wishing her nothing but love and happiness… but I’m disappointed!
