“Savannah has like a Southern flair. She comes from a wealthy family. She is always in little floral outfits. [As for my hair], I went dark a year ago for my music. I am naturally brunette. I went blonde for Disney, so I wanted to go back. I went back to blonde for something else and, actually, for this they were like, ‘Somebody has to go brunette.’ I said, ‘I will. Please!’ I love being brunette. It is so much easier. … I wigged it [for 'Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure].’”
—Ashley Tisdale talks about the hair switcheroo she did to play Savannah Monroe, the sheltered team captain on “Hellcats.” So glad to hear she agrees that being brunette is awesome. [ET Online] Keep reading »
Last December, Nicole Richie played into the dumb blond stereotype by saying she felt smarter as a brunette. So now that she’s gone back to having blond hair, has her brain cell tally gone down? [NYC, 9/29/10] Keep reading »
Fashion is often a balancing act, and this Asos headband is a perfect example of how to do it. For starters, it’s a hair accessory that’s almost jewelry-like thanks to its gold wire form. Second, you get the girly “Alice in Wonderland” edge with a sweet bow, but the look is not too flamboyant or child-like. Throw it on as a subtle yet glitzy extra to an evening ensemble, or make it a classy and surprising touch for your everyday jeans and tee ensemble.
Have you ever had a really bad time at a hair salon? Recently I went to a salon to get a dye job — a well-known salon with what seemed like a good reputation. After an expensive and not very pleasurable experience (in which the salon owner told me I shouldn’t come back unless I was prepared to maintain my look), I started to ask myself why do we put ourselves in positions to trust people who, most likely, have nothing invested in us or our hair?

This morning on the subway, I couldn’t stop staring at the woman seated across from me. She’s one of those people who’s stunning, but you can’t figure out exactly what makes them so pleasing to look at. And then I solved the mystery—she was blond, I think naturally, but had super dark brown eyes. It’s a combination that’s pretty unusual, genetically speaking. This reminded me of my friend Sarah from elementary school, who had dark brown hair like me but bright blue eyes. I was always a little jealous of this.

Maybe I should start rocking violet-colored contacts again, like I did in high school? Keep reading »
Pouf of Snooki, we hardly knew ye. You came into our lives, entertained us, and then vanished in what seemed like the blink of an eye. As we saw at the MTV Video Music Awards, the guidette has gotten rid of her signature pouf hairstyle, apparently in favor of a more “mature” look. She says, ““I want to look more mature. The pouf—I’ve been wearing it since I was 16, so why not switch it up?” We were thinking the change was actually working until Snooki kind of contradicted herself: “Now I have bangs. I haven’t had bangs since I was seven, so this is weird.” Leave it to Snooki to put her foot in it. Anyway, this got us thinking—what were some of the funny things we did (or, um, still do) to look older? After the jump, Frisky editors chime in. [People StyleWatch] Keep reading »
