Check out Jessica Seinfeld’s new blonde pixie: unflattering, trendy or cute?


I’ve always thought that there are just some women who should never go blonde. I am one of them. My coloring just would never work with any kind of blonde shade. I don’t even think I could pull off a light to medium brown. So, is Jessica Seinfeld one of the women who should never go blonde? We got a chance to see a real-life demonstration.

After cutting her hair into a very short, spiky pixie, Jessica then bleached the crap out of her pixie and posted the results on her Instagram. She gave a shout-out to the woman who did it (Sarah Spratt), writing: “Oh, it went down today. @spratula aka Sarah Spratt taught me you can never be too old or too brunette to be blonde.” Er… okay. I’m not questioning her RIGHT to go blonde if she wants to, just as long as no one questions my right to say NO, this does not look good. While I still don’t “get” why Jessica is a “thing,” I have to say… she was so much prettier as a brunette. And she was cuter when she had a bob too.

Maybe this makes me an old fart, but just because blonde/radically colored pixie cuts are the “trend” these days, doesn’t mean that every single woman needs to try it. Be self-aware enough to really look at your face and determine whether style/cut/color will look good on YOU, regardless of whether it’s “on trend.”

    I kind of like it. I think the length would look a lot better if she left it dark.

  2. Tatjana says:

    Who is this Jessica person? jerry’s wife? She does not look good blonde.

  3. Kiddo says:

    Jessica Seinfeld because…..?

  4. Sumodo1 says:

    She looks like my Aunt Ruth from Mamaroneck, NY. Oy, suburban mom hair! Euchhhh!

  5. yolie says:

    Is she going through some type of mid life crisis? In the last pic she’s flashing full on bra and cleavage! I as well don’t get why she’s a thing.

  6. eliza says:

    That aged her a good 10yrs.

  7. mrspatrickbateman says:

    I think you have to have a certain face to carry off this look. Very youthful and feminine and a round or heart shaped face. Ginnifer Goodwin is a good example of it working. Jessica has too much of a long face and more masculine features, this cut doesn’t soften anything.

  8. Inconceivable! says:

    The cut is okay, but the color is just “off “. Definitely….unflattering.

  9. kcarp says:

    That is not a good look. I know now days you can’t say anything negative about a person’s look or behavior without be some kind of troll or shamer. Since I don’t care please with all of the Seinfeld money go get some of that nose shaved off. Ya I said it I am nose-shaming someone.

  10. Amanda says:

    Blonde does not suit her. At all. That particular cut is also unflattering. Perhaps its the floppiness that puts me off of it.

  11. Jenns says:

    1. That is a terrible selfie. Stop with “that look”.
    2. The pixie looks cute on her, but not the blond color. Go back to dark.
    3. See #2. Seriously, you’ve got Seinfeld money. You can afford a good hair stylist.

  12. HappyMom says:

    I cannot stand this woman. She’s a plagiarizing famewhore.

  13. Samtha says:

    One or the other would be fine–short OR blonde, but not short AND blonde.

  14. Renee28 says:

    It emphasizes her nose.

  15. Immy says:

    Not liking the hair cut, or the last picture in which her button up shirt is unbuttoned enough that her bra is spilling out of it, not very classy for a mother of three!

  16. AG-UK says:

    She looks better with darker hair and the short hair makes her look older imo. Blonde washes her out.

  17. Christo says:

    This girl has obviously been taking notes from Elsa Pataky and Miley Cyrus (who copied Elsa).

  18. GreenieWeenie says:

    She doesn’t have the face for it. You kinda have to have big features in order for it to look good. Like, big eyes, a big smile. Think Winona Ryder. Jessica Seinfeld doesn’t have this. She has small eyes and a big nose. And that’s fine..but those features work a lot better with long hair, as Sarah Jessica Parker demonstrates.

    Yup, at this age, you really need to know what works for you. Blonde pixies are aging. And harsh. Especially when there’s a razor involved. She should’ve at least stayed brunette.

  19. Talie says:

    Everything about her irks me… how Seinfeld didn’t see the red flag of her is amazing.

  20. Annaloo. says:

    I didn’t think it was possible for her to look bitchier or meaner, but here we are…

  21. Whitney says:

    Yikes. Not a good look for her.

  22. Cody says:

    Just because you have money, your husband is famous and you have great stylist ,doesn’t mean you get the best advice .

  23. Sayrah says:

    Wow that pic of her in the red shirt…

  24. Lisa says:

    I don’t think she looks bad necessarily, but she sure does look different.

  25. Sumodo1 says:

    The whole effect is cheap. Like she went to “seniors bargain day” at a beauty school. A bad haircut is a bad haircut. Jerry did a whole episode about a bad haircut.

    • YuYa says:

      Her hairdresser has crappy hair! If I went to a salon and my hairdresser had such a crappy hairdo, there is no way she was going to be cutting my hair period. AS we can all now see, Jessica’s hair is just godawful and doesn’t fit her face at all. (The hairdresser even looks embarrassed at what a crappy job she did.)

  26. Penelope says:

    Her face is too long and not pretty enough to pull this look off.

  27. Marianne says:

    I dont mind the blonde. But I don’t think she pulls off having hair that short.

  28. Green Is Good says:

    Nope, nope, nope, nope. *octopus fleeing across ocean floor*

    Her hair was gorgeous. Shiny, healthy. The first short cut she got was very flattering. This unfortunately draws attention to her nose. It makes it look bigger, and her face looks harsh and washed out. I hope she lets that mess grow out.

  29. Cupcake says:

    Dreadful! Get a refund guuurrll!!

  30. Lisa says:

    You need a beautiful or feminine or youthful face to pull this off. Jessica Seinwho’s face is none of those things.

  31. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    Robin Wright is the only one I’ve seen who can pull this ‘do off.

  32. Racer says:

    Its been my experience that a female makes a drastic hair change when she’s going through an emotional crisis.

  33. itsetsyou says:

    She’s trying something different, what’s wrong with that? Women are always trying to be gorgeous and are so afraid of taking risks with their style, trying new stuff.
    I admire Jessica’s pizzaz!

  34. holly hobby says:

    She looks like a man in the first picture. I wish she would embrace her dark locks. I hate the bleached blonde pixie look. I wonder why she did it. Does that mean Jerry and her are dunzo? I also wonder why she is a “thing.”

  35. Nigel says:

    This chick has a face made for radio

  36. Jayna says:

    I love her video blogs with Ally Wentworth teaching easy recipes for the cooking challenged like me. Ally is what I used to be, in the kitchen, intimidated, but better now. And I like Jessica’s recipes on the video blogs. Nothing fancy, just family meals.

    But her hair looks awful.

  37. LaurieH says:

    Not a good look. Pixie cuts are adorable, but scant few women can pull them off and still look feminine and beautiful. Michelle Wlliams comes to mind. Most end up looking like boys. Ginnifer Goodwin and her stick-out ears come to mind.

  38. Trianne says:

    I hate to judge people by how they look, buuutttt here I go. She looks like one of the mean moms at my kids’ school. Entitled, spoiled, sad and miserable. They like to spread it around. I like to stay away from them. They suck the air out of the room. Sorry. Maybe that haircut is interpreted differently in different parts of the county. It says, “stay away” to me.

  39. trix says:

    unfortunately, i think it ages her.

  40. rep says:

    That snoz is damn near saluting at you huh?

  41. Holy tralier trash wave bangs from the late 80′s early 90′s Batman!


    Home girl has no idea how to style and rock a pixie. There’s an art to it. Especially if you have naturally thick ass wavy hair. It’s called a flat iron. Other wise you look like this. Friends don’t let friends go out in public like this let alone post them on instagram. Guess she’s not paying the women in these pictures enough for [or not enough?] for honesty.

  42. emma says:

    that’s a dumb looking birthday cake

  43. Me says:

    The cut is pure 1980′s mom hair. The bangs are just unbelievable. Maybe if the bangs were short it would be….oh nevermind I can’t find anything positive. ATROCIOUS.

  44. nan says:

    It’s really not easy to be the wife of a famous person and not be famous too, so I’ve always admired Jessica’s spunk. Her hairstyles, even if they’re not the look, are always changing and I give her credit for having the guts to at least try. She’s not boring! She seems to have a strong personality and a good sense of humor, and I disagree with a lot of the remarks above, I think she’s really attractive, even with a hairstyle that’s “meh” (although in this case, I don’t dislike the blonde pixie, I just think the photos were unstyled and crappy).

  45. Cinderella says:

    I wonder if her ex-husband saw these pics and chuckled.

  46. hotbitch says:

    She looks a HOT mess. It’s clear to me that someone is having a mid-life crisis…..or coming out of the closet. That last pic with the Suze Orman power cut is too much! Poor thing thinks she looks good, too. Smh

  47. Jennifer says:

    Her face is way too masculine to pull this off.

  48. Smile says:

    Let’s face it: she’s really easy to hate. They didn’t handle the PR side of things when they first started dating, and I think it was her naivete + Seinfeld’s arrogance. (Oh, and why do you need to spend a gazillion million on a city-centre custom-built garage for your 54 porches or whatever it is?) She also gave Oprah 25 pairs of designer shoes and Oprah showed it on her show, which embarrassed the h3ll out of them (“vulgar”, “tasteless”). She’s very good friends with Goop and Beyonce, who could be described as two of the most elitist people ever. However, her hair cut isn’t really that bad and she’s really quite pretty and not that masculine at all. It’s just that she’s easy to hate and she doesn’t seem to do anything really useful. And her husband is annoying.

  49. NYC_girl says:

    I had to look at her Instagram page (because I hate myself today) and there is a cute shot of her from March 9. The hair looks cute there.

  50. juli says:

    she’s a dawg straight up. She should shave her ass and walk backwards…she’d look better.

  51. Jenn12 says:

    It’s nice she wanted to try something new and fresh and offbeat, but she doesn’t look good. She looks mannish, older and gaunt.

  52. Vilodemeanus says:

    Perhaps Jerry should worry if Jessica starts going to the gym more often, drastic hair changes in women usually means they are in a life changing mood, how long have they been married?? Is it 10 years yet, where she gets half his money if she divorces him?
