Carly Rae Jepsen shows off her newly red hair: cute or not flattering?

Carly Rae Jepsen

Every time I think about Carly Rae Jepsen (which is unfortunately quite often since her singles play on heavy rotation on gym-centric, satellite radio stations), I am constantly reminded of how young she seems (musically and fashion-wise) and how she is really 27 years old. I guess she molds her image to appeal to the younger crowd, which would make sense since she’s touring with her fairy godmother, Justin Bieber.

Well now Carly has shaken things up a little bit by coloring her locks from dark brunette to a dark auburn color that is rarely found in nature. She posted a photo to her Twitter account. What do you think? I kind of like it.

The new color makes Carly look closer to her true age, but I suspect that wasn’t her intention in taking the redheaded plunge. What does occur to me is that she still needs to trim her bangs a good half an inch. How on earth does she see through those things? I get that they’re long for effect, but I’m vicariously squinting over here.

    Hate her bangs so much, don’t care what color they are.

    She looks much better and the color looks awesome on her! She really needs that hint of sexiness for a 27 year old and this look gives that off with a hint of retro.

    I quite like it, it may just be the Instagram filter, but it reminds me a little of Florence Welch’s colour.

  4. nancypants says:

    Dang! I thought she was something around 22 as well.

    As for the hair color, it’s not bad and I kind of think she’s prettier as a redhead but I’m tired of these weird reds.
    I see so many ladies now with burgundy hair color.
    I know red is supposed to be the most difficult to fake but burgundy?

    Her’s isn’t as bad as burgundy and, yes, the red makes her look a little older and she needs to trim her bangs but I still think she makes a pretty redhead.

    I like the color! I liked her black hair more though!

    No way she’s 27! She looks 20-23ish!

    I love that colour ! I wanted it so bad until a hairdresser told me “Hon, with such dark hair you’ll need bleach.”
    True story.

    The auburn colour is gorgeous and looks really good on her. But I too don’t understand why she infantilizes herself. I guess it is to appeal to the younger crowd, but as someone who’s a year older than her, no one would take me seriously if I acted like a precious little 22 year old!

    Budget Katy Perry. That’s what I think of in general and just as eye roll inducing. They’re both the (around) same age. BKP.

    I like it, at her age its fun to play w/color.

    I don’t really know much about her, except she trying to become a big pop singer, I guess.

    i have that hair colour as well – so much fun :) .

  11. LisaGIRL says:

    I like her short hair the best! It has her regular bangs look with the hair pulled up in the back.

  12. pantalones en fuego says:

    I like it on her. Not that many people who aren’t natural gingers can pull it off but it suits her.

  13. Emily says:

    I don’t care that she colored her hair. I just hate that color. It belongs on wood, not on hair.

  14. Bread and Circuses says:

    I’m getting shocked by people’s ages all over Celebitchy today. Carly Rae is 27? I thought she was about 20. And Heather Graham is 43? She looks 30 at most.

    Clearly I need to eat more greens or something.

  15. KellyinSeattle says:

    I saw her performance and it was just bubble-gum pop. She’s 27? It is bad when Taylor Swift seems more grown up!

  16. Carolyn says:

    I really like it. Needs to cut that hair out of her eyes though!
