Gwen Stefani is 42 this week, has very big hair

Gwen Stefani with big hair in London

Gwen Stefani celebrated her 42nd birthday earlier this week, and continues to provide all the proof we need that you don’t have to give up all interest in style once you hit 40, like some people seem to believe. Seriously, she looks as good as she ever did, doesn’t she?

Gwen is seen here returning from a book launch in London last night, with some seriously big hair: we almost didn’t recognise her. When it comes to hair, our motto tends to be “the bigger, the better,” so we’re ill-qualified to judge this one. (Also: we love her.) What do YOU think of Gwen’s new ‘do?

    i find this hairstyle reminiscent of one of the ladies from Dynasty after having be caught in a wind tunnel. i dont love it. but i DO love gwen, and if anyone can rock it, she can. though, without her signature red lips, i also had a hard time recognizing her! i hope i look a fraction as good at 42!

    I seriously love this. Gwen Stefani is a true fashion icon. I can’t believe that she is already 42! It seems like yesterday that she had pink dreds and was rocking it in No Doubt. I will always love Gwen’s statement red lips and this hair-do is wonderfully modern. I hope I look this good when I’m her age!

    She looks beautiful, but… does her dress have a hole in it? Is it there on purpose? It’s a head-scratcher.
