Petra Nemcova Hair

Love It or Hate It? Petra Nemcova's Bettie Page Bangs

Heavens to Bettie! Check out the hair transformation on model Petra Nemcova. Not only has she changed the color from blonde to full-blown brunette, but she's added a layer of flirty, heavy-fringe to the front. Let's also not overlook how her coral lipstick enriches her deep tan. What do you think about this new look on Ms. Nemcova?

I think it just highlights how weird her face shape is.

They look like clip ons because they're so heavy and just sit there. Here's to hoping.

i think the bangs need to be a bit more layered to work on her face...

Sure! Hope it works out :)

ooh thank you! Vegas Volt looks pretty good. I'll definitely try it at the counter, the colours are sometimes way off on the site, but the descriptions help. I know MAC will have what I'm looking for, they have a great colour range. I can't even tell you how many lip products I've bought in search of that perfect coral shade... Thanks again :)

Ok, here you go..I think Rizzo is discontinued..Vegas Volt should get you the look, I think. You can easily pull it warmer or redder with the right liner to tone it up or down. Revlon used to make an amazing coral but it is pretty oldschool. If you want me to try to find it, I can :)

hm wait...I am thinking of the Scarlett Johannson photo..! lol.. This is more coral than orange-red..give me time to think about it. I am sure MAC makes one like this....trying to remember the name, I think it was "Rizzo"

star 54, you might try something like NARS Heat Wave, or MAC Lady Danger....both are pretty punchy, matte orange-reds.

I love her lip colour.. can anyone recommend a lipstick or gloss that's close to that shade? (preferably MAC or Chanel)

These look GREAT on a select few and your style really has to match (I'm thinking Dita von Teese or Katy Perry here). I had these cut for myself and was miserable a few years back - it makes huge demands on your image. Not a good look for Petra and doesn't do her round face any favors - I had the same problem!

Hmm. I don't think they're *that* bad. The rest of the hairstyle doesn't fit it. I do LOVE the color on her. The darker hair suits her much better than blonde for sure.

a stylist once did this to me and I walked out of the salon in tears. They are horrid on EVERYONE

It's not the bangs as much as the combination of those bangs with wavy long locks.

I like it. All photos of celebs look bad because of awkward posing and bad lighting. Change the location where her face is dead center and add some natural light, and it would look MUCH better.

hate it, makes her nose looks gigantic.
rabidmoon rabidmoon 9 years She doesn't have the look down. Its a decidedly retro style that needs the right, total look to work it properly. What's worse, it looks like two haircuts..the retro bangs,and the rest completely modern? Nono. Like someone mentioned above, Kensley from Project Runway this season has the perfect face, makeup style, clothing and suchlike to make the look work for her. I do not think you have to have a "thin face" (neither she nor Dita Von Teese have oval faces), but you do have to consider the overall effect, and this woman certainly has not done so. Bettie Page + tan + my grandmother's coral Revlon lipstick lookalike? Bad!

I am in the minority, but I love them. I wish I had longer hair - I'd definitely try to pull bettie bangs off!

Not Cute On Her At All. She's Still Spectacular... Just With Bad Bangs.

This style looks good on some people, but not Petra. Here's a different shot, with her hair pulled back. I think this is even worse:
