I always figured that Dakota Fanning would somehow manage to eschew adulthood entirely and instead veer off into some weird, unchartered child-person territory. Alas, not so! The “Night Moves” actress was snapped during a portrait session for the Venice International Film Festival, and here she is looking grown-up, gorgeous, and, indeed, significantly more mature than her 19 years. Let’s not talk about how Dakota is also sporting the kind of center-parted, perfectly face-framing long bob that deludes me into thinking that I, too, could pull off this haircut for Perfect Faces Only. This has proven to be strictly a delusion. I won’t let you fool me this time, LOB.
“Nashville” star Hayden Panettiere debuted a drastically different hairstyle for a recent appearance on Letterman. She almost looks like a completely different person, doesn’t she? I’m not immediately digging it, but I think that’s just because I’m afraid of change. What do you guys think? Love it or leave it? [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Color me confused. Last week, the world exploded because Beyonce seemingly chopped off all her hair (or removed her wig/weave? I don’t know) into a cute pixie cut. But today there are pictures of Beyonce with a blonde bob. What is Beyonce’s real hair like?! Does Beyonce have a room full of heads with different hairdos, just like Mombi in “Return to Oz”? (I always wanted a room full of heads like Mombi, by the way. So awesome.) [Photos: Splash News]
I love a long, flowing mane as much as the next girl who aspires to be a mermaid, but there’s something to be said for the playful vibe and freedom of a pixie cut. I mean, I think you must have to feel really confident about the presentability of your face to go for a cropped look, and that’s something I really admire. And with none other than Beyonce as the latest celeb to join Team Tiny Hair, these 10 other ladies are in very good company.
Y’all know how passionately I feel about man buns. (I like them. I like them a lot.) So I’m horrified that people — okay, Buzzfeed — are so loose with the term that they would even think to refer to this little turd poking out of the back of Leonardo DiCaprio’s head as a man bun. C’mon, there is no actual bun to speak of. Calling it a man bun is insulting to real man buns, ones with volume, and heft, and sex appeal. Really, it’s the world’s teeniest, tiniest, most useless ponytail. And this is gonna sound harsh, but real talk: just because you can pull a few strands of hair back with an elastic doesn’t mean your should. Okay, Leo? [Photos: Fame/Flynet and Splash News]
This is our first Rachel McAdams In Public sighting in, like, forever, and we are delighted to find that she’s still looking just as lovely as she did in her Hollywood heyday circa “The Notebook.” Yep, her hair is orange, but somehow — somehow — magical McAdams is working it. But just one thing: what is with that reflective belt? An interesting choice, indeed.
Celebrity bad hair days make me feel good about the fact that basically everyday I have is a bad hair day. Now that it’s summer and the weather is either a disgusting, rainy, humid swamp sauna OR 104 degrees with a slight chance of heat stroke, my course hair is either an afro or a Brillo pad. No, it’s great really. But I think we’ve all had those days where we style our hair up all nice, think we look fabulous, then see pictures of ourselves from that night later on and realize we looked positively ridiculous. Looking at photos of bad hair days is like looking at high school yearbook photos: yikes. These photos of celebrity bad hair days make me feel a little better about those butterfly clips I used to wear in middle school. Read more on College Candy…
Rihanna certainly isn’t the first celebrity to sport dyed grey hair — Kelly Osbourne‘s got her beat on that one by a long shot — but she is the latest, and inarguably the most high-profile. RiRi’s past beauty ventures, from gravity-defying mohawks and shaved sides with long, side-swept bangs to her signature bold red lip color, have inspired countless copycats, so who’s to say her new “ice grey” shade, which she wasted no time in flaunting on Instagram, won’t take off just the same? I love a well-executed unnatural hair color, and I think Rihanna’s totally pulling this one off … but doesn’t she somehow pull everything off?
Salma Hayek’s been out and about lately promoting “Grown Ups 2,” which I’d rather not talk about, but I do want to discuss her amazing, beautiful, gorgeous, flawless hair. I mean, look at those luscious curls! I love that she’s rocking a ton of volume, even in the summer, and if I ever find out her anti-frizz secret (I’m guessing it involves some really, really expensive products and a team of Parisian hairstylists), I’ll be sure to let you know.
