have a tendency to trim up long styles in a feathery way around their faces. It rather looks like some alien plant life is about to close around their throats at any moment.

Good analogy!  I think it is one of those styles that if it isn't styled and pampered perfectly it would look like a stringy mess.  Though the masses probably won't agree, I think that both could lose a good 6 inches.

I agree,  I never liked this cut.

Paper, you agree they could lose six inches? I thought you were growing yours out!
 
I'm not a big fan of the inside feather look either, but both ladies look better with longer hair than shorter hair.

Agree! I always thought Robin's hair looked better shorter, at or just below the shoulders. Her shorter hair was also so much more versitle.

This style seemed to erupt several years ago, take over the head of every female newscaster on the planet, and hang around long past its expiration date for some. I think it has staying power because it hits that balance of being "safe" enough not to ruin your belief in that person's ability to deliver hard news, yet just enough of a definite style not to look lazy or unpolished.

Not awful, but very bland IMHO and years out of style. It's weird to me that Robin has come back to this after she's had many more flattering, more up-to-date styles in recent years. But as she's so pretty and not doing much these days with the length she has, I'm all for her cutting several inches and trying something completely different. Preferably before this style chokes her to death!

oops, I wasn't agreeing  to cutting 6 inches. I agree this is a strange hair style. It has always bugged me when I see it! Curled under or flipped out would look better.

I guess I look at this way it is better to have some lenght then going really short. So it is a win for people that love long hair.

FYI, a photo of Robin as a teen-ager. I've always thought she had naturally curly hair and has it straightened, adding and removing extensions periodically.

     We have a local anchor, Candice Kelly, who wears this tentacled style. Unfortunately, she had had the best hair on TV news before her marriage earlier this year. It was mid-back with bountiful blonde bounces. Something to tune in to see! Now, it looks stiff, short, flat and plastic. It distracts from her stunning features. And the hair team has the nerve to take credit for this "style" at the end of each broadcast. Ouch Bob

Many mornings, an angel enters my TV room. Ladies and gentlemen, Robin Meade with perhaps her longest, straightest hairstyle ever. (No comments about the extensions, OK? Let me enjoy the moment.)

Well, it didn't last long enough. Robin's hair went from her longest, thickest, most voluptuous style ever to a six inches shorter, much thinner, more layered and bangier style. Extensions or no extensions, it's like an angel has had her wings trimmed. Here are photos from the past week or two, in order. There are no two photos from the same day. Guess which styles I like best and which style I like the least. (Here's a hint on part two: It's the last one.) Please, somebody feel my pain.

If these photos disappear and the links become obsolete -- as gogomags photos and links tend to do -- and you want to see how beautiful Robin's hair can be if she let's it be, click here: http://reportercaps.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=caps&action=display&thread=23446 - http://reportercaps.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=caps&action=display&thread=23446  It may take awhile to load at first, but it's so worth it. If you don't like her with long hair or think she wears too makeup (good grief, this is a hair site), don't bother.

I like it soooo much more.  I would even go with more bang on the forehead and 3 - 4 inches shorter.  But in my opinion, she looks so much better.  No pain here, just happiness.

OK, I'll bite. What part of her longer style looked fake?

I'm hoping Robin will settle on this look. Liking the choppy layers here and the fact she's gone back to bangs.

Rocky is that touch up you did? Nice job I like her with long hair but I had to say nice job.

I'm confused by all these pictures.  So does Robin have long hair now or did she cut it short?  That last picture is it old?  A brand new haircut?  Or doctored?  If it's the latter, that's a nice job because I can't tell it.

Rocky's photo is doctored. He says he wishes her hair was that short.
 
How Robin's hair looks depends on what day you tune in. Today it was curled and had a lot of body. Most days it's straight, thinner looking and bangier. How long Robin's hair really is may be a secret between her and her hair dresser.
 
Here are a few pics from the last couple weeks, since her haircut or new extensions:

I think today's version was the best combination of recent months. Long but not so long it overwhelms her face. Deep rich red/brown color. Very full. Loose curls that tumbled past her shoulders. Soft sideswept bangs that set off her gorgeous eyes. Homerun.

As someone told me off-list, take her out of that Carol Brady/Lost in Space top with the heavy stripes and put her in a men's white dress shirt with the two top buttons undone, and I might just jump right through the TV.

What, too much?

Yeah...  Inspired by a previous post after her most recent haircut suggesting more bangs and less length, I doctored a screen cap with Photoshop (thanks for the compliments).  Sorry I wasn't more clear but I figured all of us Robin-watchers would know it was fake.

I like the bangs and layers but wish it were a little 'shorter'.  The length is not so much an issue as the amount of weight the stylist removed from the bottom layers.  Needs to be thicker to look healthier, IMO. Something about the proportion of overall length to the rest of the cut seems off to me as well. 

Overall, I'm happy with the updated style.  I agree that it looked especially nice today (4/8) with the curls. When she wore her hair very long (just prior to the most recent haircut) I was thinking it looked a bit like an Elvira wig.

I think the doctored Rocky photo is a good tip for the direction she should go in.

Rocky's fakeover is spot on, except I probably would have done a little more bang.

Rocky's fakeover is awesome. She looks soooo good with short hair. She used to have a simmilar style to this a few years ago and as I said before it was totally cute, sexy, versitile, and had tons of style. There were so many more ways she could wear it. I also liked her wardrobe back then too.
