Nicole Richie's New Do: Love it or Hate it?

04/16/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

Even though Nicole Richie’s tried every hair color — blonde to red to brunette — we’d gotten used to her long, caramel colored locks recently. But when she stepped out on the red carpet for the Race to Erase MS Gala in L.A. on Saturday night, the Simple Life star had a much lighter, sleeker shoulder-length cut with heavy bangs. We think the paler blonde sets off her skin tone beautifully, and the bob suits her petite frame. But we want to know what you think! Tell us: Do you love Nicole’s new do? Or should she go back to her old look?

I think this is just a test of people website to see if we are paying attention. She hasn’t had long hair in a long time! It has been bobbed for a long time.

Between the high cheekbones and smaller sculpted and now angular chin, she doesn’t even look like the same person. And all of you are right, that she hasn’t had long hair or a hippy style for a looooong time. I wonder how people think stars can have nice hair when they’re always straightening, dyeing, lengthening, dieting, etc. We haven’t seen her Real hair for years now! For all the looney stuff surrounding Britney~ the one smart thing she did was shave her head. That’s the only way to remove all the damage constant overstyling can do.

Mel on

Nicole’s biological parents worked for Lionel back in the 80’s; her father a drummer and her mother a stage hand. As such, Nicole was a permanent fixture on tour with Lionel and they developed a close bond. When she was 2, her biological parents and Lionel decided that she would have a more stable life at home with Ritchie and his then wife. She wasn’t formally adopted by them until the age of 9.
