Katherine Heigl’s latest hairstyle: cotton candy grandma chic?


It’s like a thing now. Katherine Heigl’s hair is always a complete mess, but from day to day, it’s a mess in a completely different way. Heigl’s been doing this country-western theme as of late, so she’s been wandering around with giant, teased up granny hair that is bleached into oblivion. She’s also been wearing cowboy boots, spangles, anything with fringe, large belt buckles, and lots of suede. It’s all pretty much a catastrophe.

So what’s new today? Well, we got a close-up look at the profile of the hair. WTF is she doing to her poor hair? Does she hate herself that much? Look at awful it looks! It’s seriously grandma hair. That white-blonde, the cotton-candy look, with the back teased up. Total grandmother.


Anyway, this whole outing was to some kind of medical center. Josh, Katherine’s husband, was there. As was Katherine’s mother, of course. I just… I feel so bad for Josh. He’s not only married to Katherine Heigl (poor bastard) but he never even gets to spend time with her one-on-one. Her mom is ALWAYS around.

    I hope that’s for a movie. But probably not, because it looks like her mom has the same haircut.

  2. lilred says:

    What the holy hell crawled on her head and died?

  3. brin says:

    Yikes…she & her mom look like sisters & that’s not a good thing.
    On the count of 3….POOR JOSH!

  4. tracy says:

    Oh my gosh, I haven’t seen her pic in a long time and she looks horrible. I’m sorry to say she actually looks like my grandmother….she just looks “old”!!!!!

  5. originalgracie says:

    Back in the early days of Grey’s Anatomy, Katherine looked so young and fresh and adorable.

    Lately she looks like a 45-year-old who spends all day smoking, drinking and gambling in a casino.

  6. Happymom says:

    Run, Josh-run!!!!

  7. Nanz says:

    Yowza! Personality aside, she is attractive and YOUNG. Why on earth is she ageing herself. While I personally don’t like the western style she’s sporting, would you yell at me if I admitted to loving her jeans?

  8. girlnone says:

    Wow. That is bad! It looks like she stuck her head under one of those high-velocity hand dryers.

  9. dorothy says:

    Haircut ages her by 10 years.

  10. Rhiley says:

    She does have bad hair. She used to be kind of pretty but it looks like the ciggies are kind of catching up with her. Her skin doesn’t looks as good as it once did and the double chin thing isn’t doing her any favors. Poor Josh.

  11. vanessa says:

    Texas Grandma!!! She reminds me of how my grandma dressed in her 50′s and 60′s, it was cute on her but not on this bitch.

  12. amanda says:

    Her hair looks bad but the cut really shows off those earrings. Love those earrings.

  13. flounder says:

    She needs to stop smoking! She’s aging faster than she should be. The over-hairsprayed hair styling doesn’t help..

  14. Quest says:

    WTF, her mom has a better cut than her….geez!

  15. the original bellaluna says:

    Whew! From the side there, she looks kinda like a bleached, budget Ashley Judd.

    And I think her hair is probably such a mess from all the dye/extensions. I looks like it just broke off and landed on her head that way.

  16. Delta Juliet says:

    Wow…I HATE my hair, but looking at this makes me think I don’t look so bad.

  17. Novaraen says:

    Nasty haircut and color…and no style whatsoever.

  18. Kaboom says:

    She really must have messed with her stylist to get punked like that.

  19. Melissa says:

    I can’t stop laughing! Who willingly does this to themselves? And her profile is ghastly- she looks like a 60-yr old grandma who’s had plastic surgery on both her nose and lips. Just awful.

  20. Melinda says:

    Her hair reminds me of my grandma. She used to get her hair done once a week. Right before she would go in she would brush through it and all the curls and hairspray brushed out to look very similar to that. Not a pretty look.

  21. lin234 says:

    I recently saw Life as We Know It and I’ve got to admit that she’s charming on film and very pretty on camera which is no easy task. I think she’s over thinking the whole styling thing and needs to grow out her hair to shoulder length and dress in simple outfits like a cute top, cardigan, jeans, or simple dresses. She has the All-American classic girl look and should just embrace it. You know, standard outfits you can’t mess up on. She’s very pretty and one would think it would be hard for her to look bad but here we are.

  22. lucy2 says:

    Wow, she looks terrible. Remember how she left a popular TV show to be a big movie star? Yeah, that was probably a mistake.

  23. Kimbob says:

    This girl has everything & she chooses to look and dress like this? No way…I don’t like the western theme…just yucka gross.

  24. Den says:

    Coming out of a medical center with her mom and husband? Has she been ill?

  25. Eleonor says:

    OH MY. What the hell happened to her face? I know she has horrible ducklips, but her profile looks very strange.

  26. Hautie says:

    Let this be a warning to girls with a head full of hair extensions.

    This is the only haircut you can have.

    Once you decide to get rid of the extensions. The haircut has to be brutal to get back to remotely healthy hair.

    But Heigl forgot to stop bleaching hers. So it will never recover.

    I hate to point this out. But Ralph Lauren has a whole line of this cowboy garb out. Very expensive cowboy garb. And I suspect that is where Heigl got this look from.

    And sadly, I prefer to see this cowboy garb than belly shirts and extreme low riders. With the ratty flip flops.

  27. Embee says:

    I agree she looks ill. I don’t mean that in a snarky sense, either. She looks like she’s struggling. I truly hope she is ok. I really like her (not this hair, but I suspect neither does she).

  28. 4Real says:

    TRAGIC…that is all.

  29. Krissi says:

    Wow- Does not look good on her at all!

  30. Blue says:

    She’s a thirty-something wife and mother why is her mom always chaperoning them. She really needs to deep conditioner and style that hair.

  31. original kate says:

    phyllis diller hair.

    that is all.

  32. Justaposter says:

    I love her outfit.

    I wonder if she is going through the grow out phase.. and nobody looks cute during it.

  33. serena says:

    How awful.

    It does seems fake..I mean seems like a wig or something, it’s too strange. But again, why would she?
    She should go for a darker blonde and let her hair grow and straight them down.
    She is a natural beauty and I don’t understand why, but she successfully can turn herself ugly.

  34. Heatherrr says:

    FOR REALS????

    This chick has loads of cash and access to all the best stylists and THIS is what is on her head??? Not only that but she used to be pretty!


  35. phlyfiremama says:

    I have never understood what all the fuss was about with her. She isn’t that good of an actress, she ALWAYS looks like she robbed my grandmothers closet, and all reports of anybody who has worked with her say she is a total bi-otch. Just a perpetual “meh” as far as she is concerned.

  36. bagladey says:

    WTH? Or WTF?

  37. Kasey says:

    Lately, she’s been rocking this tragic look and I’ve been wondering if she’s ill. That line about the hospital made me think my suspicion was confirmed until I realized it was in reference to Josh. So if she’s not ill my next train of thought…..

    “What the DICKENS did Josh do to make her hate him so and force him to have to look at her looking all sorts of hot messiness?!”

  38. fabchick says:

    Lmao at these comments. I can’t stand her. I am shocked hubby has stuck around for this long.

  39. junk573r says:

    I think she could have been a really good actress. The only movie I’ve ever seen her in was Knocked Up but I’ve watched Grey’s since the begining and I was always impressed at her crying skills. I totally bought all of her Grey’s meltdowns. That hair, though. I don’t even get it. I don’t get how someone would even come across the idea to do their hair this way. This is bedhead, not a style.

  40. Amanda G says:

    Wow…that is seriously awful.

  41. mew says:

    She just has EXTREMELY bad haircut and she has no idea what to do with it.

  42. RHONYC says:

    LMAO @ ‘grandma chic’!


    i have a feeling she was going for a Tilda Swinton cut, but her stylist missed the mark.


  43. danielle says:

    I’m starting to wonder if there is a mental illness going on? Why would someone THAT pretty make themselves look THAT bad on purpose?

  44. OtherChris says:

    She’s always had thin hair. It’s possible she’s trying to cover up some thinning due to hormones or maybe just abusing her hair.

    I don’t mind the outfit, although I wouldn’t be caught dead in it.

  45. gee says:

    She’s always on an ugly quest. How can I make a pretty girl ugly..

  46. jen says:

    That cut is all the rage in Del Boca Vista.

  47. Camille says:


  48. galaxy.girl says:

    Looks like someone put it in a pony behind her head & chopped it off :P Despise the glasses!

  49. dr.bombay says:

    This is not the cut for her face AT ALL.

  50. CeeCee says:

    I feel sorry for her. Even rich celebs have hair disasters. She probably paid some exorbitant amount and the hair dress has effed it!

  51. CeeCee says:

    * hairdresser

  52. saintdevil says:

    I’m feeling schadenfroh because I don’t like her at all.

    What a frumpy mess!

  53. snapnhiss says:

    What a waste of a good head of hair… which I’d kill for. Her hair was gorgeous in Knocked Up, I can’t imagine why she’d do this to herself.
