Natalie Portman Cuts Her Hair - and Goes Ombré While She's At It

You know how sometimes all you can think about is how badly you need a haircut, so you just cancel all your plans and hit the salon? Natalie Portman knows that feeling too. Except the only difference is, she experienced it sometime in between the London and Paris premieres of Thor: The Dark World, and she got to debut the new do on a global stage.

Tuesday night, she walked the red carpet in ladylike Dior, complete with a long, bouncy brunette ponytail. Wednesday night, she was back in Dior, but with a noticeably different hairstyle. Rather than the midlength light brown waves she’s had for ages, Portman sported a blunt, barely shoulder-length crop parted in the center.

And to add just a little attitude to her delicate features, she also traded her allover highlights for a subtle (and trendy) ombré color, starting close to her natural hue at the roots and fading into a bright blonde at the end. And with light makeup, no earrings along and the V-neckline of her pretty, embellished floral dress, Portman appeared ready to let her new look take center stage.

What do you think of Portman’s edgier new do? We’re loving it on her.

She’s adorable…but I really only clicked on this because I wanted to see a picture of her co-star, Christian!

I like Natalie Portman. She is so classy and cool to me. I miss the red carpet/ movie premier stories over the dumb reality trash wannabes that seem to be everywhere.

She is undeniably pretty, but that ombre look is just unattractive.

Charlie on

Love her, but whoever did her hair messed it up, it looks dry and damaged.

Margarita on

She is pretty as is already but I don’t think the new cut does anything for her. The color isn’t that great either. Maybe it’s the lighting on the after picture but her before hair looked alot better.

Tara on

Wow, what a huge change. Not. Enough with the ombre already.
She’s so pretty she would look good in any hairdo.

Carrie M on

I think she’s normally gorgeous but the new ‘do just doesn’t seem to “do” anything for her.

nico on

Sooo, what is the difference? What is the new hairdo?

Dawn on

She is very attractive, the hair color does nothing for her.

Tamryn on

She is not aging well at all. You can clearly see she is not getting enough nutrients from her diet. Eat some meat doll! Fame and fortune turn people into lunatics. They think they dont need God or meat. Imagine goin through life so blind that you refuse to see the obvious. To think that nothing decided that you need eyes to see ears to hear a nose to breath and vocal cords to communicate?? Psalm 14:1 the fool hath said in his heart there is no God. Literary you have to foolish to think God doesn’t exist. She is an athiest by the way..lol

Leigh on

She’s pretty, but for me she lacks sex appeal. In Thor she was just so bland – there was absolutely no chemistry.

Teknosbeka on

Anything is an improvement after the bald do.

Anne on

She’s a pretty girl but could use some sideswept bangs. The ombre washes her out a bit. I Like her hair darker, goes better with her skin tone.

Jenna on

She is one of the most gorgeous women in the world. She can pull off any look

Ruby on

I think she’s adorable and quite pretty, but the light color washes her out. Not to mention her hair looks pretty fried and unhealthy. I’d love to see her in a chestnut or chocolate brown hue. :)
