Default Actors/Actresses who looked better/worse with a new hairdo

Sometimes, an actor or actress can could a lot better or a lot worse with a change in their hairdo/hairstyle (cut, color, change, etc.)

Can you recall anyone who got a lot better or a lot worse with a new hairstyle, in terms of career success/looking better?

Here are my choices:

Best- Lynsey Bartilson AKA Lily from 'Grounded for Life.'

Early on, she played a very entertaining character and was a nice, cute-looking girl.



Later, she changed her hairstyle from bangs to a shorter style.



From that point on, in my eyes, Lily was now really hot.

Worst- Keri Russell

You've all heard the story- Keri cuts hair, 'Felicity' declines slowly but surely in terms of ratings and popularity.

I may be the only person in the world who preferred the second style to the the first. Everyone else who's ever bitched on the internet complained about style #2.

Style #1 - The bob (First couple L&C seasons)

Style #2 - Not the bob (Last L&C seasons)

Style #3 - Long (Now)

Daphne Zuniga on Melrose Place
She's naturally gorgeous, but I thought her short-do in season 1/2 wasn't her best

Seasons 1/2


Season 3


She looked even more beautiful!

Well, the classic example of continuously changing hairstyles is the actress who played Janet Wood on Three's Company.

The screenshots below are, in order, from 1977, 1978, 1979, 1981 or 82, and 1983 or 84.

You take your pick. From the time I first saw these, near the end of the original run, I've always liked the look at the very beginning and the very end.

Roseanne is a good example of changing hair styles.

I thought Linda Lavin's longer hair in the beginning of Alice looked better than the short do from later in the run.

That 1st picture of Teri, she looks just like Phoebe Cates.

Not really a sitcom but there was a big giant controversy when Keri Russel cut her hair in season two of Felicity.

I liked her look with both 'dos.

I know Brandon (Friendsfan) and Robby (Buffyboy) will agree with me here.

James Lafferty on One Tree Hill, he had short hair for the first three seasons, but midway he started letting his hair grow out, and it was pretty long for the start of season 5, and he looked like hell. Luckily, about four episodes in season 5, he cut his hair and has kept it short since. The long hair was horrible on him, and we found out that the creator wanted him to grow it out because Nathan "bottomed out" at the start of season 5 and the long hair was supposed to show how far downhill he'd gone.

his first look (seasons 1-3)


the long hair from hell (beginning of season)


now

I remember how happy everyone was when Nathan cut that long hair

there was one point when he didn't have the beard but just the long hair. it reminded me of Nancy McKeon when she was on FOL

rofl, I would've had him cut the hair first, then shave. Instead of vice versa. He might've looked good with short hair and facial hair... he looked like Jo the other way

Speaking of Nancy McKeon, that big hair she sported in the last season of FOL was atrocious!! She was much cuter when she simply let her hair down from the trademark ponytail in the 6th season.

I always thought Joyce Dewitt resembled Joan Jett at the end of the show

I agree. I'd say most of the girls had the big hair changes by the end of the show. Season 6 was when it started to get with the times and that included the hair. I remember the 6th season eppy when Blair had a mullet. lol

Even Beverly Ann had spiky hair a couple times towards the end
