Yea or Nay: Evan Rachel Wood’s New Hair

Posted on June 22, 2011

What the hell; it’s a slow fashion news day and the Bitter Kittens have proven themselves more than capable of opinionating on matters other than necklines and hem lengths. Evan Rachel Wood attended the premiere of HBO’s “True Blood” Season 4 with a new hairdo, which means there are opinions to be formed.

SUPER-cute!

For reference:

We’re getting all kinds of crazy Pat Benatar/Sheena Easton vibes here, but despite that, it looks modern and fresh. We like a gal who has the ovaries to rock a pixie cut, but they’re getting a bit overdone lately. This looks great on her and with her heart-shaped face, it suits her perfectly. We obviously consider this a big YEA, but as always, the minions must have their say.

Evan Rachel Woods’ “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” Hair: YEA or NAY?

    Yea! She looks fabulous and it has just enough edge to set her apart from the 12 million other starlets with short hair.

    • Sometimes you get lucky when you’re always trying as hard as she is.

    If those pics are in chronological order, then she has been really coming into her own as of late. This look and her photo as a redhead are great.

    • No, it just means she may need her meds adjusted.

  • She looks great with shorter hair because she looks her age instead of 10 years older, but…I don’t like that Le Roux rooster comb thing. 

    Of course it can be styled differently so overall it’s a YEA from me.

    Yea!  It’s cute.  But I wonder what she’s going to wear on red carpets now that she can’t do the old Hollywood/Rita Hayworth glamor girl thing anymore.

    • She’s got great style, I’m sure she’ll find something. Looking forward to it actually…

    Amazing!  Although, I’m a huge fan of short hair, since I’ve had it since the 9th grade.  That cut worked wonders for her face, gave it much more depth to it, whereas the long hair just made her face look rounder and plumper than it was.

    SUPER BIG YES!  Really suits her face and style.  She can work that cute many different ways, it is NOT a pixie cut.

    I normally don’t like short hair on women, but she looks great!  The outfit is perfect with the hair.  Not sure how versatile this cut is though and how it will go with a red carpet gown.

  • love it – she looks like a total badass.matches her attitude.

  • Jessica O’Connell

    Yea! It’s fresh and kind of funky and since she’s got such a classically pretty face, it seems like an awesome juxtaposition, much like it did on Hermione Gra… I mean Emma Watson.

    I love it, and really hope that this means she’ll be relaxing a bit and dressing her age more often, and less like a character she’s playing whenever she’s out in public. Which, actually, would be fine – I’m sure that’s what many celebrities do – but if your character seems to be a stylish, well-preserved fifty-year-old lady from the burlesque show and you’re in your early twenties, it’s time to go back to the drawing board.

  • YEA! SO FIERCE! She has such an amazing face, she actually can rock the hair style and not look like a lesbian. She looked beautiful with the long hair, but now that I see the new hair style, I realize that the long hair was actually aging her. It’s also amazing that she has her hair swept up, instead of just a short crop, which might have made her look dorky.

    Don’t understand the appeal of this girl.  She’s flat.  She just always has had a “look” but looks in lieu of personality doesn’t do it for me.  Couldn’t give a damn about her hair.

  • I think Evan Rachel Woods is just a general Nay. She tries far too hard to be edgy (she has the same expression in nearly, well, everything), her acting is stilted in all roles, there’s a general whiff of awfulness and desperation to her. The almost-it-girl.
     And she fucked Marilyn Manson. One word: PATHOGENS.
