Lisa Bonet has had locs for a while, but she updat­ed the look by shav­ing the right side of her head. She’s also kept her nat­u­ral grey col­or, which offers a cool con­trast to the dark col­or of the locs. Ladies, what do you think of the look?

Thanks Jax!


Eliz­a­beth, YOU ARE stun­ning! You are bring­in’ it…I LOVE IT!


I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this look on her. Only she can do it and I love that she embraces the gray (though I have no prob­lem with col­or­ing it either)

I think she looks absolute­ly stun­ning!


I think she looks great, she’s rock­ing nat­u­ral hair, with the grey. I also think she is aging damn well, face and body includ­ed. How many of us at her age can say the same thing?

I think she looks beau­ti­ful!!! I like the fact that she kept the gray hair, I agree with the oth­ers that say the light­ing isn’t so great.

I think Lisa’s body is slam­ming, espe­cial­ly con­sid­er­ing that she has one adult child and a five and four year old by her FINE a#@ man, Jason Mamoa, who’s about twen­ty years her junior!!!
Still beau­ti­ful and in a class all by her­self!


She looks real­ly good. I just think that the qual­i­ty of the pho­tos are ter­ri­ble.


She looks like she died about 5 years ago.


I think she looks beau­ti­ful and is aging quite grace­ful­ly. I think the hair­cut is funky..which is right up my alley and I think rep­re­sents what I know her style to be. Great look “Denise”!


I think that she looks beau­ti­ful…

I think she looks FABULOUS!!!! The hair, the out­fit and her glow­ing skin!!! I’ve always been a fan of her’s. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!


She looks great! Actu­al­ly, this is the best look I’ve seen on her in a while. She’s work­ing with time grace­ful­ly (can’t stand to use “aging). Keep doing that, Lisa!


i love the look on her!!! Lisa has always been a free spir­it if you all recall. Her style is inde­pen­dant and unusu­al but its sooo her. She can pull it off. theres no rea­son to b so cat­ty. what will they say about u in twen­ty years?!?!?! think about it


I think she looks great for 45 ! They grey is a sil­very grey which looks good. Lisa B. has always had her own unique style and con­tin­ues to rock it. I think the pho­tog­ra­phy makes her looked washed out but I think she looks phe­nom­e­nal rep­re­sent­ing the 40 plus crowd.


You go Lisa!!!! I love it. Always a fan.

I think that she’s beau­ti­ful. She looks con­fi­dent and in con­trol. There aren’t wom­an half her age who could look that good with very lit­tle make-up.


I think she looks great…the light­ing for the pics isn’t great, so that can hin­der a pho­to, but oth­er­wise, I hope to be this bang­ing in my 40’s…


She looks wonderful…always! Com­pared to some Hol­ly­wood types who resort to plas­tic surgery to “push back the hands of time” she looks awe­some.


Folks are trip­ping. She looks good. Peri­od.


Lisa is the Patron Saint of Black Hip­sters. This girl can do no wrong for me. LOVES IT!


+1 She’s aging well, has gor­geous locs, is in great shape and has a FINE hus­band, Jason Momoa! No hate, must con­grat­u­late!


This, I’d hate to see what some of the naysay­ers will look like when they are near­ing 50.


for real!!!!


we are the same age and I don’t think she looks great for our age at all. Still love her because what­ev­er “Denise” was wear­ing on Thurs­day nights I was try­ing to imi­tate on Fri­day morn­ings. LOL

Ugonna Wosu

agreed. Just cause we have a dif­fer­ent opin­ion doesn’t mean we are “haters” or “naysay­ers”. I have no issue with her, but I’m not going to claim she looks great for 50 when my 60 year old mom looks younger.




She has always been and will appar­ent­ly always be beau­ti­ful!


I dont know what you ladies are talk­ing about but she looks great ! I love the look on her & this out­fit is doing it for me as well.


i dont know who she is or what she looked like before.…all i know is I think she looks won­der­ful


I agree she looks great!


+1 I agree. I think the look is cool and it seems con­sis­tent with her kind of style “non-tra­di­tion­al” out­fits she has worn over the years.


+2, I also agree. I think it looks nice. Besides, in my opin­ion Ms. Bonet has always had a style that was “out­side of the box”, so I always kind of expect her to have that dif­fer­ent look in her pic­tures any­way. I think if she were to dress more “for­mal” that would actu­al­ly be out of char­ac­ter for her. I love that she fol­lows her own dif­fer­ent sense of style.


Wow, I think she looks GREAT!
She’s fit, her skin is glow­ing (great diet I’m guess­ing) — and she’s show­ing her age grace­ful­ly.

She bare­ly has on make­up and I guess we are not used to that. Imag­ine what some of our favorite actress­es would look like sans make­up. She’s look­ing great IMO.


I agree with Tonya — she looks great!


“She bare­ly has on make­up”—> Not true! Blush, high­lighter, eye­shad­ow, eye­lin­er, and lip­stick if not more is all there. And I don’t think any­one is dis­put­ing her beau­ty, but more or less her hair­style and fash­ion choic­es.


Not a good look!


I have to say that I am not feel­ing this look. Ms. Bonet is such a beau­ti­ful lady and always has been. How­ev­er, in my opin­ion the shaved half of the head thing is too trendy. I think gray hair is regal, but with this par­tic­u­lar hair style it does not work. The whole entire look, make­up includ­ed, does not enhance or com­pli­ment her at all. BUT if she likes it that’s all that mat­ters, this is my two cents!


I like the look! I don’t think she looks washed out. Par­tic­u­lar­ly in the sec­ond pic­ture that just looks like bad light­ing. She looks good to me. She seems fit and the hair cut is an inter­est­ing twist on the shaved side style. I think she has aged well.


She looks washed out


not a fan of the look. she is not age­ing well
