Do You Like Reese Witherspoon's New Bangs?

Reese Witherspoon Haircut
Pacific Coast News

When a girl’s in Paris, she’s gotta have a trés chic haircut. Thankfully, Reese Witherspoon was up to the task Thursday, debuting wispy new bangs (and wearing a Theodora & Callum scarf) while arriving in the City of Light.

This isn’t the first time the actress — who turned up at the Golden Globes this month with sexy, voluminous hair — has cut bangs: shortly after splitting from husband Ryan Phillippe, she arrived at the 2007 Golden Globes with a hot new haircut (and that memorable Nina Ricci dress). “I felt like I looked different than I’ve ever looked,” she told ELLE of that red carpet moment. “I don’t know why. I just did.”

Though bangs are usually a small change, for Witherspoon, they’re kind of big news: the most major hair modification she’s made in recent months was a subtle post-wedding trim. Tell us: Do you like Witherspoon’s new bangs?

it’s not like they’re 80′s bangs, of course they look good

Jen on

Doesn’t look any different that what she normally has except their brushed forward and not to the side. Big deal.

Tammy on

She’s worn bangs before and I think she looks good in bangs.

Rowena on

Anything that Reese wears or does with her hair seems to look wonderful on her

tillie on

it’s ok i guess,she’ll change it in a couple of weeks

JJ on

If not for the headline, I wouldn’t have even known she’d changed anything. Yes, she has bangs, but she hasn’t done anything drastically different to her hair. Must be a slow news day.

BeerMe on

She would have to REALLY work at it to look bad….

sylvia on

I think she looks wonderful & younger in bangs. I don’t understand these women over 40 that want their hair long, parted in the middle and the side hair covering the sides of their faces. In my opinion, they look ridiculous!

Rosy on

Her bangs should be long enough to cover that CHIN.

texacat on

She really needs to do something with that chin.
Personally, I think her chin makes her one of the ugliest women in Hollywood.

Joey Ricketts on

I have never written on here before but I just have to comment on some of the really rude comments that I see. Anyone ever heard of the saying …if you can’t say something nice…why say anything at all? She is a really pretty lady and does not deserve some of the remarks.

I have to agree with Joey. WTH is wrong with some of you people making comments about her chin???? What is the matter with you? It’s not a bad haircut that she can go fix tomorrow. It’s her chin….what’s she supposed to do cut if off? That’s what makes her who she is. I’d love to see a picture of those making comments about her chin. Let’s critique your face and see what we think you should lop off.

Cori on

She’s always pretty; bangs or no bangs.

MNNOTNICE on

this is the most shallow website.. the important thing of the day is someone’s bangs?

KATHY on

I cannot believe how mean people can be. Her chin? Really? What is wrong with it? She’s beautiful, a great mother, she has morals and values and she’s a very talented actress.

Peggy Smith on

I think that very few women look good with bangs – it’s kind of childlike. She looks better without them, too.

Ellie on

I’m not a Reese fan, but I respect her choice. As women, we need to change it up every now and then. Change is always a good thing in moderation. And its not like her hair isn’t going to grow out, so its all good.

Cindy on

What’s she supposed to do about her chin?!? That’s hilarious.

4urifo on

Reese doesn’t seem the same since her accident. Clearly a change in her being. Hope they ran all of the right tests for her. A head injury can change someone dramatically…or subtly.
That, my friends, is way more important than her bangs, I assure you.

Lillian on

It really doesn’t matter to me what Reese does with her hair. How is this relevant? For that matter, how is she relevant?

Anyhow, with that chin, nothing she does beauty wise will make much of a difference. You look at her and that chin is all you see..

Linda on

She looked really beautiful at the Golden Globes. She should always have that hairstyle.

ebb on

Why, oh why would you people talk about her chin?? Why do you HAVE to find negative things to say about people? Just chill and live life!

ErinTippin on

The bangs look fine on her. Now if she’d just do something with the rest of her hair! Possibly she has the kind of hair that naturally separates into rat tails ten minutes after combing. If that’s the case, she needs to find a hairstyle that doesn’t highlight that.

victory on

The gal who really needed a new do was Taylor Swift. She looks so much better with straight hair. Wow! That was a long time coming.

fashionpumps on

She looks like she always do…sweet.

Ash on

Really people…insulting her chin??? Leave her alone. Are you perfect? I don’t think so!!

sha on

she looked gorgeous at the golden globes , why the heck did she do that!!!! I don’t like it at all, she’s not a kid, dress more like the sexy woman you are reese and leave your hair alone ones it grows out

CJ on

Can’t see past her chinny chin chin and the huge double commas around her mouth.

sha on

her chin is fine, god she’s beautiful …. wish she’d do something about those roots!!!

tricia on

What’s with the insults about her chin? Sure is a classy move to hide behind a computer and bash someone for having a body part you don’t like. A real mature move as adults there. Cyber bullying. Brilliant.
Reese is great. I like the bangs, but as was said, she is fine in any hairstyle.

Brittney on

Y’all are so rude! She is AMERICA’S sweetheart. She is one of the only women in Hollywood that is beautiful inside and out! I would love to see pictures of y’all and what we could all critique about you!

Jane on

Women are so harsh making negative comments about her chin. That doesn’t stop tons of men from thinking she’s beautiful. Why are you women so critical? I think she’s gorgeous and a wonderful role model. Why don’t we embrace people’s unique characteristics rather than thinking the solution is plastic surgery? Those of you who think that have serious issues.

Thel on

Hate the new look.

Danielle on

She has very strong features…..and personality……big chin…..strong character….no chin….a sign of a weak opinion…!

C on

Is it me or does she look like Tiger’s ex, Elin?

sarah on

@ Natalie..LOL, you’re awesome!

Marie on

Um…..spelling mistake on the word “trés”…it’s should be “très”…

Meri on

Reese is a beautiful and classey lady. Her chin is just fine. Nobody’s perfect.

Megalus on

That girl would look great in a paper bag!! So adorable!

Olive on

Dont like ‘em. It makes her look a bit older.

stormy on

Lord people get a life and leave Miss Reese
alone she looks great in any hair cut .
I think she is beautiful and I am sure her
husband would agree ..

Kat on

I wish the only thing I had to worry/think about was how to style my hair or where to vacation blah, blah like the super wealth folk, lol! And no I don’t care about Reese’s new do.

nicole on

tres chic.. what the F… what is it with celebs. bet she paid a fortune for that haircut and it doesn’t look any better than if someone cut it themselves with a pair of scissors.

Jean on

I totally agree…long, straight hair parted down the middle is sooooooo old hat. I totally agree with Sylvia above. Women over 40 particularly, need to shorten that childhood ‘do’.

TODAY on

do not like this chick period

TODAY on

Is that slow news day People mag?

Willow on

Reese is one of the few celebrities I respect. Bang on, Reese!

heather on

The bangs look fine. What is more concerning are those marionette lines. Yikes!

Suburbgirl on

I think her chin is the best thing about her pretty face. I don’t usually get too excited about Hollywood women but I love this girl!

Dash on

I normally hate hate hate bangs. I think most women can not pull them off but still wear them. Reese Witherspoon is one of the few who can pull them off! I love it!
