Jennifer Love Hewitt reveals new hair: cute or fug?

I used to like Jennifer Love Hewitt and found her rather sweet. She’s kind of clueless when it comes to relationships, and she regularly broadcasts that cluelessness and even published a book about it, but she’s harmless. Now that she’s on Twitter constantly and seems to be papping herself on a regular basis, I’m a little over her. (Do you think she has paparazzi following her every day? She hasn’t had a wide release movie out since 2006’s Garfield 2, and she doesn’t have a TV series running since Ghost Whisperer was canceled in 2010. Her Client List show just got picked up by Lifetime though.)

J.Love’s hair before:



Anyway Hewitt got a hair cut, or just removed her extensions and got bangs straight across her forehead. She revealed the cut in two well photographed outings over the past two days, one with a “mystery guy,” and both in questionable outfits. She also of course posted a photo of her new hair on Twitter. I don’t think it looks too bad. I’m not a bangs fan, but I’m not against them per se. Kaiser says it’s pretty awful, but to me the real tragedy is her fashion. Check out the outfit where she’s wearing a navy blue see-through dress with a bizarre Ed Hardy-like pattern across the front. At first I thought that was a concert t-shirt paired with a skirt. At least she has on some shorts things under there so we’re not looking at her undies. She wore this yesterday to an outing on Melrose in which she tried on jewelry and mugged for the paparazzi.



Then on Sunday, J.Love went out in some kind of floral romper (I hate those, but some women can pull them off) and sneakers. She was with a guy that the photo agency couldn’t identify. It looks like he could be her brother, as Wiki says she has an older brother and this guy has similar coloring to her, but I can’t verify that. Plus the guy looks younger than her (she’s 32) to me. The last we heard of J.Love’s love life she was flying out to go on a date with Bachelorette runner up Ben Flajnik after picking him up on Twitter. Ben may be the next Bachelor, though, so he’s probably not going to pass up that chance in order to be the boyfriend of a C-lister.


Here’s the photo agency’s description of Hewitt’s outing on Sunday with this guy:

Actress Jennifer Love Hewitt made her way out of Sharky’s eatery in Toluca Lake, California on August 14, 2011 with a young mystery man. J-Love and the young man took separate cars back to her home nearby. Has the “Ghost Whisper” star moved on that quickly after her recent date with “Bachelorette” reject, Ben Flajnik, who is said to be the next hopeful candidate for the upcoming season of “The Bachelor”.

It doesn’t look like a date, but you never know. Only one agency had these photos at least, so at least she’s trying to play it “coy.” She’s so happy in these other photos with the blue dress that I still find myself feeling some affection for her. It’s like she’s grateful we’re paying attention. She’s not feigning disinterest like a Kardashian. Bless her, as they say in the south.

    Fug. Always fug with her. What is it with her and Jessica Simpson not having any vague idea how to pull themselves together? So weird – especially with all that money…

  2. Goofpuff says:

    I like her, cluelessness and fame hungriness and all. Her desperate search for love is something many of us can relate to. I miss ghost whisperer. I was hoping another network would pick it up. She had the most amazing clothes on there. Meh on this client list show.

  3. bite me says:

    bless her heart

  4. Quest says:

    I like JLH but don’t like the new do…she was doing so well until now.

  5. the original bellaluna says:

    Oh, God, more bangs trauma.

  6. francesca says:

    I’m pretty sure the shorts under her ed hardy maxi dress are actually Spanx

  7. brin says:

    GF cannot dress.

  8. ladybert62 says:

    I like the haircut except for the bangs – with the bangs, her pointy chin seems very dominant on her face.

    Dont like her clothes.

  9. sapphire says:

    Bangs trauma to hide her beady little eyes.

  10. lucy2 says:

    Terribly unflattering.

  11. gee says:

    I wish I was “fat” like her. She has such a great hourglass shape, WHY does she dress like this??

  12. DogBoy says:

    Francesca (above) nailed it: The dress is unintentionally see-through.. the Spanx were supposed to be JLH’s little secret.

  13. Turtle Dove says:

    Disagree if you want, but I think the woman has some of the best hair in the business. Normally, I hate bangs too, but they’ve always worked for her.

  14. Rianic says:

    I like the bangs – she looks Real Housewife-ish now

  15. Cindy says:

    I adore her, much rather read about JLH’s lovelife failures then Lilo’s binges.

  16. Anguishedcorn says:

    Awful bangs. Awful. And that “mystery man” should really be described as a “mystery boy.” Looks like she’s driving her reluctant teenager to after-school practice and he doesn’t want to stand too close to her.

  17. Hautie says:

    JLH needs bangs.

    And I swear I am tired of hearing anyone with a set of bangs… being referred to as having trauma.

    She has a large forehead. She is trying to minimize it. They are a nice fringe across her face.

    Not some set of 80’s mushroom style poofy bangs. Which by the way would be legit bangs trauma issue.

  18. serena says:

    Kaiser is just obsessed with any type of bangs. It looks fine to me, she has a wide forehead so bangs suits her well.

  19. Amanda G says:

    She has great hair, but I’m not really digging the new cut.

  20. NinaGianvonni says:

    I actually like her hair before. I’m a big fan of loose waves.

  21. corey says:

    I find her beauty goes underrated, she really is a very pretty girl.I like it when people try new hairstyles. It’s fun. I always appreciate when people change it up once in a while instead of just doing what works ALL of the time.

  22. Firecracker says:

    I like both, she just probably wanted a change. I have bangs! Had them for years, they soften my face.

    That maxi dress is so ugly though, but I’ve never like them. They look like old fashioned nightgowns to me.

  23. Kloops says:

    She annoys me. I feel guilty that I don’t like her because she seems genuinely harmless so my distaste is largely unfounded, but nope, not a fan. Can’t watch anything she’s in and don’t find her particularly attractive. Those are two really unflattering dresses.

  24. Shelley says:

    Why sneakers with that dress, why? Just with flip flops even, it would have been fine. She’s very pretty, especially when wearing very minimal makeup, and has a great figure.

  25. MJ says:

    I actually love the maxi t-shirt dress! If she’d only sweep those bangs over to one side, I think she’d look pretty great (relatively speaking, of course.)

  26. Alex says:

    She looks better with bangs I think, most people do unless they are really gorgeous.

    Great paintings! This is the type of information that are meant to be shared across the internet. Disgrace on Google for not positioning this post upper! Come on over and discuss with my web site . Thanks =)
