While I’m totally in favor of people dying their hair weird colors — Nicole Richie’s purple hair is amazing on her and I loved the rose gold hair trend — I usually draw the line at green. Green hair has always just looked like too much time was spent in a heavily chlorinated pool or, I dunno, witchy but not in a cool goth way. So when I saw that Katy Perry had dyed her hair “slime green,” I expected to hate it. But I don’t. In fact, with her dark roots and skin coloring, I think she looks kind of fantastic. I’m not saying everyone should run out to their nearest Hot Topic and ransack the shelf of Manic Panic’s Green Envy … but if you can rock it like Katy, do you, girl. [Instagram]
The clocks have sprung ahead. Yesterday it was 60 degrees in Manhattan. The heat in our office has been shut off. Dare I say it? I think spring is really, truly on the horizon. Which brings me to something I’ve been meaning to tell you — it’s time to get your hair did. You need a change. Something fresh, different, a new look that screams, “I have been cold and wet and stuck inside for too many months, but look out world, because I am ready to emerge from hibernation and make spring my bitch!” Here are 12 recent celeb hair makeovers to consider for your triumphant return!
Call me crazy, but I am loving this bright lavender shade Nicole Richie debuted on Instagram earlier this week. It’s so lovely with her skintone and perfectly aligned with her wild sense of style. What do you guys think? Too wacky? Too reminiscent of Kelly Osbourne? Or freakin’ fabulous and on point for a funky fashionista like Ms. Richie?
Today a very special day, friends. It’s Connie Britton’s birthday! To say we love Connie would be a massive understatement. We are ridiculously obsessed with Connie. As Tami Taylor, she gave us the mother/best friend/wife/sister we always wanted. As Rayna James, she became our new favorite fictional country singer. As Vivien Harmon on the first season of “American Horror Story,” we prayed for her triumph over that scary haunted house. In real life, she’s a Planned Parenthood-supporting badass. There are countless ways we could pay homage to the Goddess that is Connie, but today we’d like to focus on just one of her many, many amazing features: her hair. So many valuable life lessons can be gleaned from Connie Britton’s famous golden mane, such as… Keep reading »
The Oscars are this Sunday, and I don’t know about you, but I have been positively, absolutely salivating from the anticipation of finally finding out — no, not which film will win “Best Picture” — how Jared Leto will style his gorgeous head of cascading ombre man locks for the occasion. Having seen those strands in person, having touched them however briefly, I can confirm that his hair is as great as photos suggest. It’s glossy and has the perfect copper-y ends, but is also limp in that way that only man hair can be limp and sexy. SO ANNOYING. Basically, it’s perfect, down or up, though you know I ride hard for man buns.
Which is why I am positively verklempt to read what his ombre expert (duh, of course he has one) has planned for Academy Awards night. Given that Jared is practically a lock to take home the Best Supporting Actor trophy for his role in “Dallas Buyers Club,” the man formerly-but-forever-known-as Jordan Catalano has got to look like a winner.

Over the course of a woman’s life, she will make many decisions about her hair, for many reasons, few of which are actually about hair. And even though some of the hairstyles we chose were pretty awful, it’s hard to regret even our most cliche coif decisions, especially when we consider our reasons for making them. We can’t help but feel a pang of nostalgia for that pink streak we got in art school to assert our individuality, or the time we experimented with bleach because we were depressed and convinced that being blonde would fix our life. In fact, if we had it to do all over again, we probably wouldn’t change any of our hair history (even though we still have split ends from that peroxide incident of ’07). Here’s a retrospective of 15 hairstyles every woman has tried at some point in her life, along with our motives and regrets. If you’re ready to reminisce about the pros and cons of a midnight Manic Panic dye job, click on through to the gallery!
Oh, but the fashion is just the beginning. We’re all about analyzing the best and worst of the stars’ makeup and hair at the Golden Globes too. Who was most likely to be storing a pack of Johnny Depp’s cloves in her updo? Which actress should have reconsidered channeling “Dynasty”? Click through to find out…
Julianne Hough has had one of the best bobs in the game for a while now — her artfully layered, shoulder length style was super flattering and helped her stand out in a sea of long-haired ladies. But alas, the beautiful bob is no more. Julianne Instagrammed a picture of her new extensions last night, captioned with the hashtags “#changeisgood” and “#longhairdontcare.” Sadly, I kind of do care, as I’m not a fan of this more generic long hairstyle. Maybe she was looking for a way to distract everyone from that Halloween black face fiasco? What do you guys think of Julianne’s new look? Love it or leave it? [Popsugar]
At the British Fashion Awards earlier this week, Sienna Miller debuted a new shade of blonde hair best described as “rose gold.” Basically a very light pink with orange tint, those plebeians at Crayola would probably call it “peach.” I happen to think this wash of color is quite pretty on the right person. And as a number of other celebs have demonstrated, rose gold color can be used in subtle highlights or as an overall color. Click on to see what I mean…
Your hair is like a tree — it should change color when autumn rolls around. I love fall hair colors because they’re darker, deeper, and more dimensional than summer hues, plus they’re often described with dessert-related words (chocolate, honey, caramel, butterscotch, etc.), which delights me to no end. If you’re yearning to update your tresses this fall (and aren’t we all?), look no further than these 10 celebs’ envy-worthy locks in every shade from icy blonde to jet black. Better yet, have your stylist flip through this slideshow and decide which shade would look best on you. Here’s to the season of gorgeous hair!
