Glamour gives 28-Year-Old Christina Gibson a hot new makeover.

Finally over a breakup, Cristina Gibson needed a new look she loved. Celeb stylist Mark Townsend took her shorter, blonder, better.
















Before

Like so many women before her, Cristina Gibson, 28, longed for a big change after her relationship ended. “I wanted something more sophisticated,” she says. Dove stylist Mark Townsend felt all that length elongated her face, so he cut eight inches and gave her sideswept bangs (styled with just a scrunch of Dove Style+Care Nourishing Amplifier mousse, $4, drugstore.com).

In the meantime, Nikki Ferrara of Sally Hershberger Downtown in New York City brightened her color with highlights. Makeup pro Susan Giordano played up Gibson’s hazel eyes with mauve and deep-plum shadows.

I received a reply to my coment. And the answer is no, I am not into any hair fetish, I just think she would have looked better keeping her longer hair, but styled a different way.  I don't like women in short hair.  I don't think it is sexy or would attract me.  I think Anne Hathaway should grow her hair long again. She was much more attractive that way, and by the way, put on some underwear if you have a problem with the press taking pictures of you.

Honestly...
She looks better in the "before" photo.
Obviously, she is attractive either way, but the makeover just makes her look like a generic lady with no personality

I do think she does look abulous with the new hairdo and makeup, but, like Scrooge, it sort of makes me hesitant to ask her out figuring she is now out of my league

Anyone else having trouble posting to msn?  I think they do it on purpose in response to posts they don't like. Edit:  I'm amazed this posted.  I've been trying to post comments for days.  I haven't had trouble with any other sites.

    What to wear on every kind of date

    It’s the best and worst time to be a single girl in the dating world. On the one hand, past generations of women didn’t have the freedom, financial independence, access to birth control (depending on your state and employer, of course), or plethora of options to meet new people—online and off—that we enjoy today. On the other hand, they also didn’t have to worry about sexting, selecting the best selfie for their profile picture, or accidentally swiping right on a coworker.

    Your guide to hair accessories

    If you’re anything like me, you probably haven’t gone anywhere near a hair accessory for years—save for the few stretched-out Goody elastics tumbling around at the bottom of your handbag, the slightly rusty bobby pins gathering dust at the back of your medicine cabinet or that scrunchie you use to pull your hair back when washing your face in the morning. For as long as I can remember, hair adornments have been slapped with somewhat of a childish reputation; when’s the last time you saw a girl over the age of 11 wearing a barrette or witnessed a woman past her teen years sporting a headband?
