What Do You Think Of Mena Suvari's Buzz Cut?

Woah! When Mena Suvari stepped out to lunch in Beverly Hills last week, we did a full double-take! The actress had buzzed her blond locks for the lead role in the film Garden of Eden, coming out in 2008. Mena certainly isn’t the first to get a crew cut for a part –Demi Moore and Natalie Portman also said good-bye to their hair for their art. Like these two beautiful ladies before her, we think Mena can totally pull off the boyish ‘do and still look feminine. Tell us: What do you think of her buzz cut? Do you like her with long blonde hair better?

I love it!

tracey on

HORRIBLE but it’s for a movie.

yen on

IT’S COOL, THIS IS WHAT BRITNEY SHOULD HAVE DONE.

AshleyDean on

I LOVE IT ON HER! SHE DOESN’T HAVE A WEIRD SHAPED HEAD OR ANYTHING…IT LOOKS GREAT ON HERE!

Dorothy on

She looks cute I like it.

Emma Watson's #1 Fan on

Britney follower? Personally I can’t stand buzz cuts on girls. I don’t think it looks good at all.

AshleyDean on

love it! it looks great!!!

NOOO on

for a second there i thought she was britney spears

NOOO on

NO NO NO!!

maggie on

She can definitely pull it off!

Bethany on

ALthough she doesn´t look sa horrible as Britney she´s not really pretty. Actually the only one person in the whole world that looks gorgeous with the head shaved is Wentworth Miller.

Shelly on

Oh, it looks awful. She had such beautiful hair. I hope she doesn’t attempt the nasty hair extensions like Britney has.

Heidi on

HOT!

i hear shaving one’s head is quite liberating, and i’m sure it’s even greater when you actually look good wearing it.

Anon. on

I actually love this.
She can really pull it off.
I’d love to do that to my hair.
I just know that I’d regret it majorly.

Annie on

Love it, love it, love it! She looks fabulous!

Jitterz on

i think it looks beautiful. she certainly knows how to stand out of a crowd and i admire that!!

Rose on

More power to her for not covering it up! It looks totally cute. It might just be for a movie but she owns it.

prudence on

I love the cut!!!

Debbie on

I think the cut on her looks really cute!!

Blinding Athena on

This might just be the lesbian in me, but I LOVE girls with shaved heads! She rocks this look.

ru on

it think ,he** yea who cares what any body thinks

tld on

she pulls it off WAY better than Brit. and at least she is mature enough to wear it and does not need to cover it up with hats and bad wigs. Go Mena!

Marie on

I prefer her with long hair.

kristi on

Who cares about her hair, where can I find that python purse she is carrying?!

S on

Is that really Mena Suvari? I don’t really recognize her – the sunglasses sure don’t make it easy. She looks a lot better than Britney Spears did, and it is for a movie role.

lolo on

Maybe Britney will see the often classy Mena and think that this is a trend she, too, should embrace (I HOPE).

alia on

I think you should style and cut your hair however you want….I think experimenting on our hair is an extension of our emotions….if your feeling fun—-get some highlights or add some color…..if you feel like you want to start new—-get a buzz cut…..I think it’s something everyone should feel free to do…..even women:) ….

Jenna on

She looks like a boy and i have never hurd of her..

mary on

Her willingness to cut her hair inspires me. She is not afraid of change and she is a true and great actress.

Hannah on

it looks like Becks in drag, but she can pull it off

robyn on

she looks like britney ;D

Sarah on

She’s doing what Ms. B should have done from the start…wearing it proud!!

350Zgirl on

I think Mena looks hot…Britney should take a hint and get rid of those horrible extensions!

Gus on

love it. wish i could pull it off

Seymour Kreevich on

It looks great! But then, buzz cuts actually work for MOST young women. I hope it gets more fashionable.

Angie on

I think she looks great……

LAUREN on

I THINK IT LOOKS GOOD! BETTER ON HER THAN ON BRITTNEY FOR SURE!! SHE’S ADORABLE!!!

bliss on

are u serious?! this look is for the guys only! even if it is for a movie she stiff looks awful in my opinion!

bliss on

hate it!!!!!!!!!

Brandi on

I think she looks so pretty with this cut! She has the face and the head shape for it!

Talia M. on

Please, go and get hair pieces, or wear a wig…you remind me a bit of Brtiney Spears!

criss on

she rocks it!

Amparo on

I like it. I wished Britney Spears would come out of those wigs and hats and show us her buzz. A lot of celebrities use extentions making it look worst. Just when you think you’re not so glamorous, that’s when people think you’re more attractive. Sometimes, less is better.

everyman on

Hot, Hot, Hot………
Eat your heart out…Britney !

everyman

Kelly on

At first I thought it was Britney…but then read it was Mena. Sure! I say Go for it! I don’t think she would have done it if it wasn’t for a role…but I like it! She can wear it well! I’m all for short hair…have it myself…not that short mind you! I couldn’t pull it off.
But I love it!!

Sarah on

Ah, I don’t think so!!

Allie on

She looked so much better with long hair, but it doesn’t look awful.

Kiana on

Sure she rocks it, but my eyes were drawn to the georgeus python purse she’s carrying with her. It’s probably very expensive, but I want to know who it’s from!

CRS on

I think it’s cute, I agree with Yen, this is exactly what Britney should have done. It’s a cute cut, if I could get past my husband, I’d get a buzz cut!

Krissy on

most women don’t look cute with short hair like that, but she has proved us all wrong! It’s Beautiful :)

houda on

oooooh god it’s not cool !! sooo bad the cut :(

EUNISE on

LOOKS COOL!!

EUNISE on

COOL!!

cute

Brenda Anshanslin on

“FAIR IS FAIR!”
Is it me ore does she really look like Helen Slater from the movie The Legend of Billie Jean?
I loved that movie and Mena totally pulls off the look!
We Will Be Invincible!

Yira on

She’s pretty, with or without long hair.

Anonymous on

why?!!?!?!?!

Rebecca on

It’s for a movie folks. Leave it alone.

chloe on

it looks great on her!!

Joy on

So beautiful! So cool! So hot!

Ryan on

Personally, I think Mena Suvari looks quite cute with her hair shorn. And for those who say that its horrible what she has done, she is doing it for a movie role. Look how Demi and Natalie became household names for doing what they did for their roles.

Gaston on

Normally, I would say “uhh….no”, but Mena really pulls it off. Looks very cute!

Anonymous on

omg i thought it was Brittany Spears HAHAHHA

I THINK IT MAKES HER FOREHEAD LOOK SMALLER… LOOKS BETTER!!!!

ME on

I THINK IT MAKES HER FOREHEAD LOOK SMALLER, SO MUCH BETTER…

Pogue Mahone on

I like it and it looks good on her!She looks very pretty and it does alot for her.
I did it myself 2 years ago to support my son when he lost his hair to leukemia and I actually found it quite liberating not having to worry about my hair and it was so easy to wash, and required no care!I liked it so much I even kept the style for a whole year afterwards and it was perfect for swimming and the heat of summer!Sometimes less is more!

sandy hickman on

I just LOVE it, it’s so fresh and free…I cut my hair like this Jan. of this year, it grows back don’t worry everybody…it’s just hair, you’ll live…take a rest from the image we are all so stuck on…laugh and love…lighten up and let others do the same.

Greta on

Oh my gosh!!! She’s the new Brittny!!!

Ashley on

I appreciate that she’s not ashamed of the buzz cut. Demi and Natalie both rocked the fuzz hair before. I wish Britney was confident enough to pull it off instead of that weave and headband combo!

Jan Close on

TERRIBLE! OMG – This is not the Matrix, please girlfriend. The glasses are cute. The same pair Kate Hudson is wearing on the other post. You can get them here for 18 bucks. http://www.akostyle.com

Emilee ♥ on

I’m not a fan of the buzz cut, but Mena pulls it off well, and it’s for a movie role so it’s okay, and she still looks cute. It’s nice to see her embracing her own look, and not trying to cover it up with ugly hats and ratty wigs {Britney}.

cliter on

very unsexy…can do much better
cliter@dada.com

sandy on

well, it’s a little bit too drastic, but hair still grows.

sandy on

well little bit drastic but it’s just a hair which still grows. right?

Vanja on

It looks great, fresh :)

There’s so much long haired women it becomes boring to look at them.

Anyway, cute little head and face can pull it off.

This look stands out, go girl ;)

Michelle on

I dont like the look but its for a movie so its fine i guess

Miranda on

Its not the greatest, but after I found out shes doing it for a role, I know respect her decision.

reader on

ok for a movie…

too short for everyday wear

localstylist on

it actually looks great on her!

jane on

how can you people love this look? it’s awful!!

DANAY on

I DON’T CARE ABOUT THIS GIRL ?

Buket on

I love it too!!!

Celeste on

I like this picture. It is like G.I. Jane meets Britney Spears. She would look fabulous no matter what. As long as she keeps her sanity issues on the down low(if any)and keeps blossiming as an actress, she will always be beautiful to me.

Zimwamoura on

Gorgeous!

Ilene on

Personally I think she deserves an applause.
I could have never done it.

NICOLE on

I LOVE IT .

Lauren Christian on

I had a question regarding the brand of sunglasses Men Sevari was wearing in the recent picture featuring her buzz cut. I have seen these classes on Vanessa Minillo as well as various other celebrities.

Thanks,

Lauren

Vicky on

i think it looks great on her! It looks stunnin! x

tiwana on

i think it’s a NO! remember that O’Canor gal…is that her reincarnate?

Laura on

Ilove it love it. I’m African American and keep my hair cut short, and blond. The men love it

Laura on

love it love it, she wears it well. I’m African American and have been wearing my hair short and blond for 5 yrs now.The men love it.

Abby on

Honestly, Mena really pulls that look off. With a touch of make up she can make that hairstyle really feminine

ashland on

Beautiful

Cara on

*smacks forehead* XD She can pass it well, it looks fine, but long hair is better. No questions asked.

kathleen on

Awesome, it takes a real beauty to pull this off, more power to you Mena!!!!!!!!!

cutie on

she looks hot!

dawn blagborne on

what a Joke!!

aida on

I think she looks beautiful!!! I am so proud of her showing it off as if it is nothing to be ashamed of! Britney should learn from Mena, who looks beautiful no matter what- it is all about confidence. Mena doesn’t look or seem ashamed so it shows, where as britney is always covering up, wearing fake hair and looking trashy, how she is feeling shows, and I think Mena is far more beautiful that britney, because of her attitude, not her looks!!

kee on

she looks really nice…it atually doesnt look weird…she looks cuteee…

HUH?? on

ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

chofu on

i hate it
i dont like it at all

[CHIKA26] on

OMG FIRST I THOUGHT SHE WAS P!NK !! BUT IT LOOKS GOOD COOL CUT..!!

sam on

=O why did she do that!!! she was hot with her long hair

Meagan on

She looks great. I think it would be edgy to keep her hair like this..even after the movie raps.

Shelby on

natalie portman pulled it off better…Mena just looks like Spears just a bit longer…and thats not really a compliment…

LUCYLEE on

She looks gorgeous!

Jess on

It’s way cool

TT on

Who the hell is she?

Brittnee on

its really really ugly on her she should have left it like it wuz

Meg on

I really dont mind the buzz cut on her but if she could choose the style again i think she should keep it longer.

Jacquie on

wow- for a second i thought britney finally hired a stylist and burned her wigs.

but that was wishful thinking. Mena looks good.

Blondie on

It looks really good on her! Its not the Britney thing, it looks very nice! she has a good head 4 that! She should keep it that way!

Paul on

That was my favorite hairstyle on my wife and it looks awesome on Mena, too!
