Christina Hendricks Cuts Her Hair - Do You Love It?

We’re pretty sure her conservative Mad Men character wouldn’t approve, but we’re loving Christina Hendricks’s new chin-length cut.

At a promotional event for the show in N.Y.C., the actress debuted the kind of picture-perfect bob that’s worthy of being printed out and taken to a salon — from the length to the layers, it’s stunning on the star.

Initially, we didn’t realize how much shorter it was, because Hendricks tends to hit red carpets with her hair curled (check out her last look here), but when we compared it to the star’s street style, it became clear just how much she’d lopped off.

And what a difference a few inches makes! Her new do is fresh and youthful and really brings out her delicate features. We’ve made it clear how we feel about it, so now it’s your turn: What do you think of Hendricks’s new cut?

What is with this coverage of celebs cutting their hair? She didn’t lop anything off, she took out her extensions.

Wow she looks great! I’m loving the new trend of shorter hair!

Tina on

It looks beautiful on her. Looks like a wig, though.

There is always at least one comment saying “she didn’t cut her hair; she just took her extensions out” when a celeb cuts their hair. Can’t celebrities ever have long hair? Do you actually know these celebrities and know for a fact they had extensions? So annoying.

Tiffany on

That is exactly how she looked as Saffron on Firefly….

Love her hair but I love here breast even better

Her hair wasn’t that long to begin with so I don’t think she had extensions. I am pretty sure not every celeb has extensions (like I don’t think Jen Garner does). My hair was as long as hers was in the before picture and I definitely did not have extensions. Regardless I think her hair looks cute shorter.

Why couldn’t she be the most beautiful woman in the world????

konba0 on

Hasn’t she always looked like that?

Nancy on

Christina wears helper hair; this one looks like a topper, which is over her own (thin) hair. She looks great though and the length is beautiful on her, as is the color.

KJM on

Very pretty!

guest on

Christina Hendricks is one of those women who can do whatever she wants and look confident and fantastic.

Nicole on

Awesome! She looks like Yo-Saf-Bridg again! :)

ava on

She looks much better!

anna on

It’s a wig.

Nancy on

Looks great. Healthier

LJH on

Love that her hair cut is bringing out the Browncoats, hahaha.

Seriously though, isn’t this just her normal cut? It’s the same cut I’ve always seen her in, from Firefly to ER to now…

JAK on

The cut is gorgeous!! Looks like she might have lightened it a bit too.

Jluogb on

Yes Kate, 99% of Hollywood does wear fake hair. It’s not a big deal–I wear it too–but posting a story about it is lame. Any amateur can tell.

Yes, even the beloved Jennifer Anisyon and Jen Garner do. It looks better, why not.

LisaC on

She’s wearing fake hair in the bob photo. It looks good, so she should. I’m a hairstylist and I can spot the difference, it’s very thin in real life.

cmbdz on

Her hairstyle is lovely….very flattering on her….but she’s had this cut before (check out photos from her appearances on “Firefly”). Please stop reporting like her haircut is a ‘radical’ change. She’s been there, done that before.

Valerie on

Honestly, it’s not any different than how she normally wears it. She always starts out with this cut, lets it grow a bit, cuts it back and starts again…….nothing new.

blair on

She looks beautiful with that haircut!
