Weigh In: Love This Hairstyle or Hate It?

By March 13, 2007

Follow me on:

I loved Mia Farrow in "Rosemary's Baby," but I'm not sure how I feel about Michelle Williams' new 'do. Weigh in below and let me know what you think.

(1) heather says:

She looks pretty. Of course she would look good with a paper bag on too! But i think her hair looks nice. It makes me want to cut mine.

March 13, 2007 at 1:57 pm
(2) Kelly says:

Her hair is adorable. She has the right kind of petite, elfin features to pull it off.

(3) Laura says:

It don’t like how she’s working it. The lace patterned dress and mauve make-up make her look like a grandmother. Mia does it to perfection.

(4) Karla says:

Michelle needs to get rid of all that makeup. Even without short hair she looked better with a natural look.

(5) Jane says:

I love her hair, much better than her longer style…she looks beautiful, also love her make-up, she is a yummy mummy, I have short hair and it is nice to see other women not afraid to go the chop! Michelle’s haircut is even better than MIA’s!

(6) jess says:

i dont like hair that short but it looks good on her :)

March 16, 2007 at 1:48 pm
(7) Jennifer says:

The new hairstyle is perfect if her goal is to look 40 years old. I didn’t like her longer hair – it looked messy and sloppy – so a short cut is a good idea… just not this particular matronly cut.

(8) Carlos says:

I believe most males would agree with me when I say that if you cut your hair like this, well over 50% of the male population will probably dislike the way you look.

This isn’t cute(from a male perspective), it’s a borderline masculine haircut. Although I can’t speak for everyone, I think I speak for most men when I say, please don’t learn from her.

March 17, 2007 at 11:28 pm
(9) Lydia says:

I think she can pull it off and she looks really cute but it’s not my favorite hair- do on her.

March 18, 2007 at 1:04 pm
(10) Danielle says:

i am not digging it.

March 19, 2007 at 12:29 pm
(11) janice says:

Why do we let men dictate how we wear our hair? I think she looks great. She can pull it off well.

March 19, 2007 at 12:38 pm
(12) Beth says:

I like it. I think it looks really cute on her. However; it would probably look horrible on most of the rest of the population!!

March 19, 2007 at 12:45 pm
(13) Jen says:

She is a working mom…needs a no fuss approach while still lookin Smokin for her Babydaddy. Props to her and her crop!

March 19, 2007 at 12:52 pm
(14) Julie Ann says:

Very cute on her. I like it much better than the long hair. It brings out her pretty features, and she looks more youthful and feminine. I would change the makeup colors to pinks and peaches. The stuff she has on now is heavy and dowdy.

March 19, 2007 at 12:55 pm
(15) Sarah P. says:

It looks nice on her — of course those of us who can’t afford $600 haircuts in top-tier salons would be taking a much bigger chance chopping it all off than Michelle did!

March 19, 2007 at 1:05 pm
(16) Chris says:

In response to Carlos.
As a male I totally disagree.
First of all Men have nothing to do with what women should wear. Period.
What gives you the right to speak for the majority of men?
She looks terrific and very sexy because she is a pretty woman to start.

March 19, 2007 at 1:06 pm
(17) Cathe says:

I love it! I recently went out
on a limb too and cut my hair
the same way (before she did).
Change is good, and easy. Most
of my friends prefer my new look;
ofcourse I’m not as pretty as her,
but I hold my own.

March 19, 2007 at 1:44 pm
(18) deegee says:

OK for her but NOT for me

March 19, 2007 at 2:09 pm
(19) Carla says:

Right on, Chris! You said it all in a nutshell, and I think it looks terrific, too. She’s an attractive woman and has the right features for this to be a good cut for her. You rock, Chris!

March 19, 2007 at 3:25 pm
(20) Lorna says:

I agree, both look good. I recently had my hair cut after 40 years of long hair. Not quite as short as theirs but a big step for me. I love it, and my husband does now.

March 19, 2007 at 3:38 pm
(21) Jan says:

Sorry, only Mia can pull off that cut. Her’s is soft and feminine, while Michelle’s is rather harsh.

March 19, 2007 at 6:55 pm
(22) Robbie says:

I think it is adorable but would look even better with cute earring and good makeup.

March 19, 2007 at 7:10 pm
(23) Allie says:

She has a pretty face and can make the very short style work.

March 19, 2007 at 9:38 pm
(24) Cynthia says:

I adore it–I have worn my hair even shorter than Mia’s for 4 years (After waist-length for the decade previous), and I still get compliments on an almost-daily basis, from both women & men! Saves both && (on products) and time–no styling. Rock on!

March 20, 2007 at 12:23 am
(25) Kathy says:

I have to agree that hair worn that short gives a masculine impression.

March 20, 2007 at 12:23 am
(26) Rachael says:

Michelle looks WAY better than Mia with this do, it’s very cute. Power to her for having the guts to do it, I don’t think I ever would. I’m too vain!

March 20, 2007 at 1:49 am
(27) Becky says:

It’s like her bangs are either cut too heavy in the front or she needs to sweep them over to one side. The top of her head seems to be bigger than Mia’s (or maybe the top of her head is just more round without adding any volume up there!!) A little more fringe on the “sideburns” would be more feminine. Overall, it’s a bit too boxy and blah for me.

March 20, 2007 at 11:05 am
(28) Sissy says:

Girls don’t fool yourselves! There is no way a short hair do can be compared to a long one. Actually Michelle looks as if she escaped from orphanage… Please let men have short hair.

March 20, 2007 at 7:51 pm
(29) Tina says:

I’ve never been a fan of short hair and this -do looks very unattractive. She also needs less and softer makeup, but It’s good thing that everybody gets to do as they wish!

March 20, 2007 at 11:01 pm
(30) Brenda says:

I like it on her, but I couldn’t wear my hair that short.

March 22, 2007 at 3:44 am
(31) anna says:

I love michelles hair, I think she looks enough natural already. about mia farrows hair I’m not too sure.. but, we all have our own opinions.

March 26, 2007 at 1:16 pm
(32) nancy says:

hate the hair cut, her look like a boy.

April 19, 2007 at 4:53 pm
(33) Jessica says:

I like her hair, I think she looks pretty, though I do prefer her hair long.

May 14, 2007 at 1:31 am
(34) Joanna says:

Who cares if men like our hair or not? we shouldn’t live to please them. Janice said it right. Her hair looks great–it shows of her gorgeous face!

June 17, 2007 at 4:47 pm
(35) Renate says:

Both Michelle and Mia have perfect features for the short cut. However, as pretty as Michelle is, she could NEVER compare to the gorgeous face of the young Mia Farrow. She has angelic features.

June 21, 2007 at 4:33 pm
(36) Kerri says:

I think Michelle’s hair is precious! So much so that I am getting mine cut very similar to this cut this afternoon…I’ve always wanted a cut like this, and I’m Joanna…it’s our hair ladies! Don’t let a man tell you what to do/not do!

June 23, 2007 at 2:02 pm
(37) Wiglett says:

Be careful when you go in for that short cut. I had long hair forever and 2 weeks ago I decided to get a “cute, short” cut I saw in a hair mag. This do was sooo cute. But I came out of the salon with a hideous mullet and now I want to crawl in a hole.

July 2, 2007 at 6:03 am
(38) Bobby says:

I absolutely love it. People also say guys like long hair, well it really depends. Cute women look great with short hair. If you’ve got something to hide grow it long.

July 9, 2007 at 5:23 pm
(39) mark says:

Sorry, she looks like a guy, with short hair.

(40) rose says:

ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww its so ugly!

(42) poison spice says:

When actresses cut their short its just for a change and most grow it right back out. Kirsten Dunst,Demi Moore,Alyssa Milano and the list goes on. Mia Farrow has not worn her hair short in several years. Today hair is not a sstatement as it was front page news in 1966 when Mia cut it all off herself. Anyone cutting their hair off to emulate Michelle Williams is wasting their time because i would bet shes already growing it out. Short hair is cute for 5 minutes than u r stuck with 1 style only. A girl with short hair and no makeup is missing only 1 thing and thats her male anatomy.

September 28, 2007 at 2:55 pm
(43) Jeff says:

I don’t like short hair on women, it makes them look like boys. I have never met a woman that I thought looked better with short hair; in my opinion they loose a sensuality and a mystic that short hair can’t provide.

November 21, 2007 at 3:18 pm
(44) lola says:

you could look like a man with hair to your waist, that has nothing to do with the length of your hair. not to mention that halle berry has been voted as the sexiest woman when her hair was shorter that mia’s.

December 8, 2007 at 11:38 am
(45) Joan Corr says:

this is one of the most charming hairdos ever! A woman has to be very confident and very sexy to show her face this way.

January 25, 2008 at 4:47 pm
(46) Michelle says:

i hate it on her so ugly!!!

February 8, 2008 at 5:54 pm
(47) RJ says:

NOT sexy on 99% of women, including these two. Too cropped on top. Not a horrible cut, but this is a smidgeon as hot as long hair, Gals.

August 20, 2008 at 2:54 pm
(48) aileen dearie says:

its mega pretty and feminine
those girls who say it looks like a boy probably look like boys themselves!!
jealousy what a curse girls!!

August 20, 2008 at 2:56 pm
(49) aileen dearie says:

love it!! mega cute and ultra sexy!
girls who dont like it could never carry it of anyway!!
its not masculine its feminine
jealousy is a bad thing!!!

(50) Baldedie says:

I love her new haircut, I actually would rather see her head shaved clean and smooth.
Bald headed women really are wonderful.

October 14, 2010 at 8:09 pm
(51) lynda says:

she looks very cute it suits her but i’d look dreadful in it i don’t have the petite fragile look she has.

March 18, 2012 at 11:41 am
(52) Jaycee says:

One f the greatest hairdos ever!! Wash and wear hair. Sexy, cute, pert, French gamine, Really shows the beauty of a woman’s face. Most medium to long hair just hangs.
