Does Jessica Simpson’s hair look really fried & over- processed to anyone else?

Here are some photos of Ashlee and Jessica Simpson making a joint appearance at the Macy’s in Costa Mesa, California. They were promoting Jessica’s clothing line, for which Ashlee has some kind of role or something…? I think Jessica lets Ashlee design the “tween” part of the Jessica Simpson Collection.

I don’t really want to talk about Jessica’s weight at this point. I think she looks fine at this point. We don’t have any full-body shots of her at this event, but you can see some here. She looks… the same. She’s top-heavy and Weight Watchers isn’t going to change that. What I really want to talk about is how awful Jessica’s hair looks in these photos. Jessica used to have good hair for a (bottle) blonde, didn’t she? I don’t know much about blondes and blonde-maintenance, but I do know when hair LOOKS healthy and when it looks like overprocessed straw. I swear, Jessica’s hair used to look a lot healthier than this. She used to have a really nice, sunny blonde shade that looked healthy. I think she’s gone lighter (blonder?) and she’s not taking care of it. And just know this: THIS has happened post-Ken Paves. Ken Paves used to be her BFF/hair guru. They were inseparable. Then they had a falling out. And now Jessica’s hair looks like crap. I wonder if Paves is the don of the gay hair-stylist mafia?

Also: here’s a photo of Jessica and Eric on Friday in Beverly Hills. Her body looks fine to me. I swear, I think she’s basically back to where she was before she got pregnant.

    Is that even her hair? Not extensions/a weave? It does look terribly overprocessed.

    • Tiffany27 says:

      That was my thought too. It looks like she’s not taking care of her weave.

    • Vesper Lynd says:

      +1 i can only imagine how hard it may be to keep bleach blonde hair in good condition, especially after so many years of going blonde. It’s gotta be extremelly rough even for the toughest of hairs.
      Seeing these pics of Jessica makes it clear to me that the pic in her halloween viking outfit was VERY retouched to make her look like she had a thin waist. Also the dramatic make up distracted from he double chin, which was also very retouched. I change the channel on the ridiculous WW commercial, i’d rather see the JHudson ones.
      Ashley looks surprisingly good in this pic, she’s been low profile for a while.

      • Amory says:

        Ashley is definitely the more attractive sister. Ashley can pull off elegant once in awhile; Jessica never looks anything other than cheap.

        And I think Jessica’s “hair” has never looked good, and has never been anywhere close to real.

  2. Eleonor says:

    ahaha the hair stylist mafia LOL!!!

  3. Bluedog says:

    Her hair does look bad but I don’t think it’s coloring it that’s making it look horrible; I think she’s gotten some cheap extensions. Her hair looks OK from the top of her head to her shoulders. From the shoulders to the ends looks like tangled Barbie hair.

  4. Bayarealife says:

    I agree that it looks like extensions that have product on it…product and synthetic extensions don’t mix…or it’s just dirty and not synthetic. Her roots don’t look good either.

  5. Boo says:

    It’s not even blonde. It’s just yellow. 🙁

    • LeslieM says:

      It does look cheap and I’m not a big fan of that style on long hair. I think it looks better straighter on just about everybody.

  6. pretty says:

    the color is AWFUL. piss yellow. ew ew ew
    so ugly.
    seriously, that’s the most ugliest, cheapest looing blonde hair shade i’ve ever seen.

  7. Cathy says:

    Her hair looks like hell. But I like her shirt, it looks good on her.

  8. Dhavy says:

    Maybe is her post-pregnancy hormones? I know my hair went all crazy on me about 3 months after I gave birth and was also falling like crazy. It lasted about 4 months

    • tracking says:

      Yes, and the hormones can also affect hair color. If it’s not a weave.

      • Isa says:

        Yea it does! I know my hair looked awful and I normally have pretty hair. It fell out and my hairline is still recovering at a year later.
        But I think Jessica’s main problem is not taking care of it properly. Extensions, dying it, frying it. Just isn’t good.

    • j.eyre says:

      This is what I thought. Hair changes so much during pregnancy (usually).

      I think Ashlee looks great.

  9. Jayna says:

    She’s got those clip-on extensions mixed in that all the stars put in for certain hairstyles. The hair seems a little too yellow to me.

  10. serena says:

    Ashley looks weird.

  11. Victoria says:

    Didn’t she out out a wig line with Ken? Why did they have a falling out?

  12. Shelley says:

    She looked so exceptionally pretty in a photo I saw of her several years ago with little or no makeup and very soft natural hair. I don’t understand why/when these young women began feeling compelled to put on such heavy makeup and wear these nasty Devo/Barbie hair extensions. I really wish they’d stop. All of it – especially the false eyelashes and fake hair – make them look hard, exhausted, and years older than they are.

  13. Amy says:

    Fried and over-processed… could describe her hair OR her diet while she was pregnant.

  14. lettylynton says:

    I think Ashlee looks great in these photos; better than usual. Jessica looks wonderful. I think she is lower than her pre-pregnancy weight. Maybe she is in transition with her hair; like she did something, has to wait a week, then can resume? I dunno. I don’t think it looks that bad as is.

  15. says:

    Her hair looks like piss-yellow yarn. No shine to it whatsoever.

  16. Elise says:

    I think she wears the fake lion’s mane and oversized handbags to make herself look proportionally smaller in comparison. She looks completely fine, body-wise, but she hides behind the distraction of HAIR and accessories and chunky shoes. She is naturally pretty and should just keep it simple and less high-maintenance.

  17. Jenna says:

    Yikes. Well, apparently pregnancy can wreck your hair after birth. Maybe that’s what she’s going through? But I think she looked great in that outfit.

  18. Quinn says:

    Sitting by Ashlee really showcases Jessica’s thick neck, masculine jaw etc…she needs a fatter sister and less My Little Pony hair.

  19. Amanda says:

    After all the grief Jessica has gotten for not losing weight fast enough, now that it looks like she’s lost a significant amount, we’re going to ignore it and focus on making fun of her hair instead?

    I give her credit, she looks great.

    • anon says:

      Lets see. she is 6 months into her WW diet less 6 weeks because of no workouts or diet because of C section & some still feel she isn’t losing fast enough. I think she is doing amazing with this diet & put it into perspective in that J Hudson took 12-14 months to lose her 80 then Jess is very impressive. Now lets not give her credit for that though lets now find fault with her hair. It’s just too far beyond resonable thinking to give Jessica credit for too much. GEESH! PICKY PICKY!!!!

  20. Mar says:

    Sorry Jessica is a sloppy trashy pig no matter what her weight is.

  21. Ladybug says:

    I thought she was the blonde one from real housewives of Atlanta. 🙁
    On a positive note she really worked hard to get back in shape and looks great. And she should be in great shape since she has the time and resources to focus on being. fit and healthy and fulfilling her weight watchers contract.

  22. Reece says:

    Off the title alone: Yes!

  23. Memphis says:

    Shes a pretty girl but that hair isn’t doing her any favors. I know pregnancy can cause your hair to go nutty afterwards (mine sure did) but the top looks OK, so I think this is just a case of bad extensions.

  24. Real Talk says:

    That’s because when you have a baby and especially when you breast feed all of your hair falls out and the what little grows in is like straw.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      What? I’ve never heard of that. I bf my kids and never lost my hair.

      • UghInsomnia says:

        I lost a TON of hair after both of my pregnancies. I breastfed, but that has nothing to do with it. You don’t lose much hair while you’re pregnant, so once those hormones leave your body, all the hair you would’ve lost starts coming out. Mine came out in handfuls for almost a year after giving birth, but I never got bald spots or anything like that. It was just excess hair.

      • CAKat says:

        You’re a lucky one then…my hair went CRAY CRAY after my daughter was born. Falling out, dry, etc etc. I think it is also really affected when you try to lose weight while bf’ing. Both things rob your body of nutrients and your body is going to protect organs and vital processes before it protects your hair, nails, skin, etc.

  25. G says:

    Kudos to her for losing weight. I say that with mixed feelings because I don’t care for the 4 mill ransom paid by WW or the public flogging in the tabloids and would prefer not comment at all. (Sigh)

    But her hair is seriously veering onto Ex-Wives of Rock territory. It’s just one flat unflattering colour. Sorry I don’t believe most of it is real either. As you get older one colour brass is harder and harder to pull off.

  26. Cam S says:

    Maybe she should kiss and make up with Ken Paves?

  27. A Fan says:

    They both look fried and over-processed.

    Seriously, enough with the bleached-blonde grossness. It doesn’t look good. Why do women insist on doing this???

  28. BRE says:

    I was thinking maybe her and Ken are friends again because I read a quote from him a few weeks ago saying that Jessica is a wonderful mother, something that made it sounded like he had spent time with her.

  29. Sweet Dee says:

    Aside from the fact that they both have the exact same shade of piss yellow going on, and the obvious fried ends, I think they both look pretty good. I like Jessica’s shirt.

    Can I just say that these girls had their peak when I was coming of age a little less than a decade ago, and I always wished Ashlee would end up the more famous one. She was always a bit dramatic and less nice, but for Pete’s sake at least she had a brain in her head. I think she is definitely the prettier one, but it’s my own bias since I think people who are smart are attractive, and though Ashlee is not THAT smart, she’s a freaking theoretical physicist compared to her sister.

  30. ms. heart says:

    hmm, deep-fried. just sprinkle some powered sugar on it and she’ll gobble that up too.

  31. Lrayne says:

    Judging from the last picture her man needs a cut more than she does. Ew.

  32. skuddles says:

    Her hair always looked fried and over-processed doesn’t it?

  33. Holden says:

    LOL, Jessica Simpson wearing a Yale sweatshirt is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen.

  34. Anoni Mus says:

    Ashlee looks like a completely different person… can’t put my finger on it… plastic surgery?

    Jessica should cut her hair and leave it natural. She has a pretty face, she doesn’t need the skank hair.

    • UghInsomnia says:

      She’s had well-documented plastic surgery. She looks completely different than she did as a teenager.

  35. efwcheryl says:

    Ashlee looks very pretty and fresh, Jess looks like a big girl who has bad extensions….

  36. Str8Shooter says:

    A 10-watt bulb in a 50-watt socket.

  37. Faye says:

    All I know is that girl DID NOT go to Yale

  38. Kosmos says:

    Jessica isn’t very tall, maybe 5’3″ with a chunky build. Oversize purses diminish her even more. Too much weight would also work against her. She definitely wears hair extensions to give her more volume and body, but I remember seeing her more healthy hair years ago in photos.

  39. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    Her hair looks like S**t and always has. It just got much, MUCh worse after Paves left her.
    The beef with Ken Paves was that he was sick and tired of Jessica obsessing over men and going through them like Klenex. He was tired of it and so they parted ways.
    Shes one of those people who cant be by themselves. A shame. She is not nessessarily a “strong, independant woman”. Left alone to be single, she cant handle it…although, paradoxically and ironically she is a god business woman.
    I just wish she would “class it up a bit” and polish her style more. She has so much potential. I imagine her style will eveolve to be something like tammy faye baker or Mrs. roper on threes company.
    The ridiculous HUGE bags and chunky shoes!!! Ugh!! I cant!!! no style or taste! Awful!

  40. INeedANap says:

    The girl with Jessica is lovely, but there’s no way that’s Ashlee Simpson. They look nothing alike.

  41. lem says:

    I think Ashley had another nose job. Her first one looked good and then it seemed like her old nose was growing back (I have no idea if that is even possible) and now her 3.0 nose looks completely different (but good IMO) than her 2.0 nose. She looks good so no snark from me.
