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).

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.

    Our favorite platinum blondes of all time

    When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive. In celebration of fashion’s favorite hair color, a look at the best platinum moments in history.
