As 2012 draws to a close (we made it!), we’re narrowing down our utmost favorite celeb looks throughout the year, like these 10 stars who consistently impressed us in the hair and makeup department…
Kim Kardashian must have seen yesterday’s “What Are We Wearing Today” video, because she ran out and got her bangs cut just like mine and Rose Byrne’s. Despite the obvious copycatting, I think her hair looks so fresh and youthful — but I suppose whether she keeps the fringe all depends on what Kanye thinks, huh? [Photo: Splash News]
Whether you know Connie Britton as Molly McMullen from “The Brothers McMullen,” Nikki Faber from “Spin City,” Tami Taylor from “Friday Night Lights,” or Rayna Jaymes from ABC’s new drama “Nashville,” one prominent characteristic of the actress may come to mind more than her uncanny ability to play strong women with sass: her hair.
That’s right, Britton’s long, flowy, light auburn tresses have inspired hair envy in her most ardent fans – and has even inspired one Twitter handle. Britton, however, seems to take it all in stride.
“Here’s the deal: I have fantastic people that I work with on the show who do their thing,” said Britton, who recently was in New York City to hand out care packages with Curel and Direct Relief International. Read more…
Is there anyone, dead or alive, who could even stand to compete with Liv Tyler‘s hair game? The only feasible way I could sit through 166 minutes of “The Hobbit” would be if at least 150 of those minutes were devoted to Liv’s hair care routine. Wait, is she even in the movie?
If you lack the manual dexterity to braid your hair into fishtails or pretzels, you’re in luck. After years in the top spot, the braid has a challenger that’s far more attainable: the bun. No, it’s not new—Athenian women wore the style back in ancient Greece—but the bun has been popping up everywhere from runways to red carpets in a variety of forms. Heck, you can’t log onto Pinterest without a sighting. To find the one that best fits your personality, check out these 10 options.
I unabashedly love Jennifer Lawrence and think she can pretty much do no wrong, and she is pretty much the only reason (sorry!) I saw “The Hunger Games.” But what in holy hell is going on with this Elle magazine cover? Jennifer looks like she’s ready to kill somebody. Also? Those bangs. So is she thinking:
- “I suffered through “The Hunger Games” for this?”
- “Where is Tawny Kitaen?”
- “Serving ’80s rock video realness.”
- “How much longer before I can put my sweatpants back on?”
- “Who frosted my tips?”

It was just yesterday that I was sitting at my desk at The Frisky office, going on and on about how much I love Britney Spears and debating out loud which of her songs is my favorite: “Toxic” or “Slave 4 U.” Lucky apparently still has a girl crush on Brit, because they’ve put her on their December cover, an interesting choice considering Britney is known for many things, but making good shopping decisions is not one of them.
Anyway, Britney looks lovely on the cover, to be sure, but she also looks a bit overly photoshopped in the face — and what in the helllllllll is on her head? Why is Britney wearing a wig? Did she shave her head again? And why is it so obviously a wig, anyway? She — and Lucky! — surely have enough moolah between the two of them to get something more realistic than discarded Barbie hair. I realized I should be grateful that Brit has evolved from the sad series of weaves she wore during “the rough years,” but still, this gives me a sadz. Can’t Britney just be allowed to rock her own hair? Lord knows I would love to know what it actually looks like.
“We country folk, we like our big hair. I am certainly no exception. I just feel like … maybe it makes the rest of me look smaller. I’m not sure of my reasoning, but that’s the number-one thing I do, when someone fixes my hair, I put my fingers in it and make it look bigger.”
–Carrie Underwood tells People magazine that she totally abides by the old southern saying, “The higher the hair, the closer to God.” I’m seeing Carrie in concert this Sunday, and will definitely be foofing my hair up as much as possible in her honor. Apologies in advance to whoever is sitting behind me. [People]
