I've worked in advertising for 19 years and I've never seen a company reshoot ads unless there is a problem with the film. Some advertisers will use photos that are five years old again and again as long as it looks current.

I have never heard that the point of advertising is "to give an up-to-date, modern and desirable slant on the product." The point of advertising is to sell the product. You create a carpet ad that will sell the most carpet/rugs.

Ms. Hartigay's choice of hairstyle has no impact on selling Karistan rugs. It doesn't change the product or the benefits they are tauting at all. Other than people on this board few people will look at the ad and say, "she doesn't look like that anymore." 1) it's how she looked in the last episode of "SVU" 2) A star's hairstyle change is irrelevant to most people that aren't on this board.

I don't agree. Hairstyle is part of a star's image and, presumably, a part of the collection of attributes that makes the celebrity useful to sell the product. No doubt a butch hairdo wouldn't be so desirable to sell expensive, high society carpets as a soft and romantic style.

I didn't say they would have used the new pics. Then again everyone has deadlines. But if we are talking something that is going to be out next month they have to have everything in it's place to be made. Now it is someting like New Yorker I belive they have even smaller window to put their mag together. Everthing has a deadline.

I can't help but wonder if her growing her hair out had something to do with her pregnancy.  the long hair gave you something else to focus on.  she did gain a lot of her weight in her face when she was pregnant, and it did show.  her hair sort of hide the look of the weight
 
when Mariska Hargitay said it was traumatic to cut her hair, maybe she was implying she had gotten used to it and it was just a matter of adjusting to a new look and feel
 
~short or long my husband and I are big fans of Mariska Hargitay.   she is beautiful and a great actess
I am at 32"

There's an awful lot of speculation there Lickalime! I don't think either short or long hair can hide excessive weight.

     It looks MUCH better than the original chop, but I just walked by the supermarket stand and saw her on the "O" cover. Whoever thought she should cut that youthful hair is either jealous or delirious. As Dr. Strangepork on the Muppets would say, "Good thinking Link!" LOL Bob

Guess she'll grow it out as soon as she quits the series.

Or if the people running the show say hey maybe cutting it short wasn't a good thing. Let's grow it long again.

I normally tend to like shorter styles but I think in this case she looked better with long hair.

On the side issue - Actresses are not the only ones who turn over control of choosing their hairstyle with a contract. Some models, dancers, professional cheerleaders, etc have to do the same thing as part of their contracts. If it's not for you then look for a profession where you have more personal control or make it so big that you call the shots!

It's also a great observation that many of us choose more conservative style (I would prob have a band tattoo and earring) based on the expectations of our professions/employers... and it's tacit to our contracts!

     I have no intention of rehashing Mariska's haircut, so read no further if you don't dig long hair.
     In an Aug. 10 Entertainment Weekly ad, Mariska is featured with her still flowing tresses. Page 66. It is the most beautiful photo I've ver seen of her, so if you're standing bored in a checkout line, give it a glance, or stare. LOL It'll  make you wonder afresh, but what's done is done! Cordially, Bob Smile

Funny that she seems to be everywhere with long hair in spite of the cut months ago.

I'm not sure about this whole business of getting actresses to cut their hair either in front of the camera or for a particular role. It IS a gimmick. No actress should need to cut her hair unless she wants to. What's wrong with a wig? Remember Jennifer Lopez in "Enough"? Nicole Kidman in "Birth"? These were wigs, used when the actress didn't want to cut her hair (and in Nicole's case it was awesome). Is there anyone, for example, who thinks that Halle Berry's head shave in "Nappily Ever After" will be anything other than a publicity stunt? Or is she doing it for her art?

That wig was one horrible piece of rug. It ruined the entire movie.

     OK, so I saw the "Short Hair" magazine on the stands with newly-cropped Mariska's picture on it. My curiosity got the best of me, so I HAD to see how this proselytising circular assessed her obvious "makeunder". LOL Well, the best they could say about it was that it gave her "styling ease"!! Not exactly a thunderous endorsement, even from the place you'd most expect it.
     BTW, the article surmised that it must have been her new baby which prompted the change. They should do some homework before going to press! Confused Bob
      P.S. Enya, YOU are another I'd love to see with long tresses. Yeah, wake up, Bob!!! Confused

LOOOOVE her with long hair, though it reminds me of her character on E.R., as in: extremely sweet & needy. So...I liked the long hair

Actually, I take it back, I like her short look. I just think the long was better.
