I wish I could say that I take the high road and could care less about such frivolities as what celebrities are doing with their hair, but honestly—this week is going to go down in celeb hair history as the most mind-blowing ever.
First, of course, the Biebs chopped about two inches off his locks, much to the dismay of prepubescents everywhere who dreamed of running their hands through it. He actually looks a little more badass now, although the double-breasted jacket he’s wearing in this picture makes it look like he’s trying on his dad’s clothes.
But only one person could upstage Justin Bieber in the hair department, and that’s Jennifer Aniston. Having been the proud owner of the most popular ‘do in history, she has had to deal with the aftermath of “The Rachel” for the past 15 years.
Yesterday while promoting her new film “Just Go With It,” Aniston shocked the world and debuted a new haircut. It’s a long bob, which is actually pretty short for her–it’s also noticeably lighter. The blogosphere greeted this news as if she arrived on the red carpet in an egg wearing a meat dress on the arm of Brad Pitt. It’s gotten rave reviews and also been panned wholeheartedly. TMZ even accused her of trying to look more like Barbra Streisand (under the hilarious headline, “Jen Aniston Goes To The Barbra Shop.”)
Just to weigh in: I liked it better before. The long, loose waves were flattering and made her look younger–not that she looks old, but the longer hair softened her face up a bit. But seriously? It’s a pretty minor change. Talk to me when she dips the ends pink and shaves one side.
There’s one celeb, also known for his spectacular head of hair back in the day, who is probably grateful for all the attention heaped upon Biebiston the past few days. And that is John Travolta, who was snapped in Hawaii on Monday without his hairpiece. Poor John.
