Decisions, decisions. We love how voluptuous and sexy curls look (a la Amy Adams, here at the New York premiere of “Julie and Julia“), but we’re also suckers for slick, straight hair. For these particular events, her hair guru, Matrix celeb stylist Mark Townsend, made the style decisions above based on the clothes and um, just a “feeling.” For the NYC event, he wanted her hair to look modern and glamorous to match her ritzy Carolina Herrera gown. “I’ve been very inspired lately by hairstyles from the ’80s with lots of volume,” he said. But for the more slick look in LA, he was inspired by “beauty shots from the ’80s that I’ve collected over the years, very Carol Alt,” he says, referring to the supermodel who reigned supreme back in the day.
We’re torn. Which do you prefer?
Oh, and P.S. We just happen to have a few bottles of the Biolage Shine Endure Spritz that Mark used on Amy laying around the office. It’s good for shine, protection and both straight and curly hair. It costs about $14 in stores, but we’re willing to part with three bottles for our favorite comments regarding woman’s greatest mystery, that very serious conundrum: curly or straight? Keep reading »
“It’s silly that something so simple as changing your hair could have such a big effect,” Katharine McPhee tells People regarding the self-described “edgy” new look she’s rocking on her new album cover, shot by edgy-in-real-life photographer Ellen von Unwerth. You can say that again sister. Personally, we’re not the biggest McPhee-o-philes (or whatever her most devoted fans are called), but she does look kind of hot, no? [People] Keep reading »
Anna Wintour took the reins of New York Magazine‘s fashion department in the summer of 1981 after working at illustrious titles like Savvy and Harper’s Bazaar. Her staff portrait is above, and how cool is it that she arrived at her New York office with her own desk? Keep reading »
God willing, the Gosselins‘ 15 minutes of fame will be but a flickering light come Halloween. But if the malevolent pop culture gods refuse our repeated offers of sacrificial Jonas Brothers, at least we’ll all have less frightening costumes this year than the Sarah Palin get-up of yore.
BuyCostumes.com, an online costume emporium, is hawking a Kate Gosselin wig, discreetly called the “Eight Is Too Much Adult Wig.” It captures the no-nonsense front and sassy back of Kate Gosselin’s trademark ‘do. It’s not really trademarked, but we wouldn’t put it past her to pursue that as a revenue source.
Unfortch, the $14.99 Kate Gosselin wig is sold out now, but once it re-stocks, you’ll be in Halloween heaven! Remember, loser ex-husband and crap parenting skills sold separately. [BuyCostumes.com] Keep reading »
Over the weekend, Britney Spears was snapped on her way to the salon to get her extensions fixed up. Embarrassing! (Not that Brit is easily shamed.) We had to wonder…do people still get hair extensions? Apparently so. Unfortunately, it’s people like Spears and Paris Hilton that give the hair treatment a bad rep because their manes never look normal, and always look fried.
That said, hair extensions do offer a certain magic, allowing you to change your appearance drastically in a matter of hours. Find out if they’re right for you…

Diane Kruger has one hell of a hair stylist. Every single time she’s photographed on the red carpet, she’s rocking a new, genius look. Side braids, retro and sculpted waves, casual and side-pinned, a low chignon sprinkled with tiny braids throughout—nothing ever looks too shellacked or forced. In fact, she always looks like she just may have done it herself. (We know that isn’t true, though. Still!) Sure, the Jennifer Aniston‘s of the world will always have a nice-looking blowout, but there’s just something to be said for taking the chance and switching it up. So when I saw Diane’s hair from a red carpet event in Sydney today, I had to give her a shout out for two reasons. It looks great, but also, since one-shouldered dresses are everywhere now but I never know how to fix my hair when I wear them, I’m stealing her idea. How it’s done, after the jump! Keep reading »
assaulted your eyes showed you a vomtastic advertisement waxed into a guy’s back hair. For some reason, this ad kind of reminded me of my parents. My dad is super hairy and I have no clue how my mom handles it. Whenever he takes off his shirt, I make fun of him and my mom always defends herself saying that when they got married, my dad wasn’t nearly as hairy. Because my dad’s natural sweater is so icky to me, I remember vowing as a child that I would never date anyone hairy. But since those days, I can’t say that I’ve been faithful to my younger self. I’ve dabbled with the hairless and the cavemen and I can genuinely say that I don’t prefer one to the other. As long as all the hair is tamed, I can deal. Sure, we here at The Frisky kind of dig hairy-chested men. But my friends have some pretty convincing stories as to why I should avoid hairy dudes at all costs. Keep reading »
While Ciara is sporting her cute short ‘do all over town, her hairstylist is simmering. Shirlena Allen, who says she’s been styling Ciara’s hair for over a year, says pictures of Ciara’s edgy “new” haircut posted on Twitter were totally misleading. According to Allen, the photos were taken over a year ago by Atlanta-based photographer, Derek Blanks. To prove her point, she draws attention to the fact that the photos posted by Ciara and the haircut the pop star is wearing now are “two different styles.” Instead of being happy about the exposure though, Allen is angry because the pop star allegedly has yet to pay her for it! Now, she’s trying to get paid the new-fashioned way: by yapping to blogs about it! She told a gossip site, “I asked for the wig back a year ago, and she says she can’t find it … She has no identity. Still trying to find a look.” We know Ciara’s hairstyle kind of resembles Rihanna’s, but isn’t that a bit harsh? [Bossip] Keep reading »
If Halloween came early this year, we missed the memo. Here, the frightening and creepy creations by artist Nagi Noda. They’re hats made of human hair and molded into animals. This has to be screwing with the food chain somehow. [Nagi Noda via Inventor Spot] Keep reading »
Former first daughter Jenna Bush has gone over to the
dark darker side. Her new brunette ‘do is a big difference from her famously blond locks. Now, we have a few theories as to why she would go there: to curate a more mysterious look, to stand out from her sister, for a change after her recent wedding. Most likely, she read our insanely popular post, “10 Reasons Why Being A Brunette Is Awesome.” Whatever the reason, we like. You? Keep reading »
