As the owner of some seriously fine, straight hair, and therefore the executor of many fruitless attempts at bouncy, luscious waves, I’ve always been envious of the effortlessly wavy and curly-haired. “Millionaire Matchmaker” Patti Stanger’s insistence that women should straighten their hair to find a partner? Insane. These 10 celebs may not necessarily be naturally curly (in fact, I’m willing to bet that even if they are, the curls they’re sporting on the red carpet are manufactured), but they’re definitely gorgeous, and they’ll have you wanting to pick up the curling iron even in the dead heat…
There are many things about Selena Gomez that I do not aspire to. (See: pop stardom, capricious relationship with the escaped asylum patient previously known as Justin Bieber.) Her hair, on the other hand? Yup, Selena Gomez is currently wearing my long, thick, voluminous, unkempt yet glossy dream hair. I would steal that shit straight off her head any day. [Photo: WENN]
As much as we can all appreciate a beautifully layered braid or a pair of structured twists, sometimes — especially in the disgustingly hot summer months — you just want to pull your hair back with a few bobby pins and call it a day. I love the idea of using multiple bobby pins in different bright colors, as shown here by the lovely Katharine McPhee. Suddenly your desperate attempt to get your bangs off your face becomes a bona fide hairstyle! Another bonus? This style is doable for literally any hair length or type — short, long, straight, curly, and anything in between. Try these Scunci no slip bobby pins, which come in a rainbow of summery colors, to get the look for yourself.
Our affection for rare, gorgeous natural red hair is well-documented, and our love for celebrity redheads knows no bounds. Whether they’re natural-born gingers like Jessica Chastain and Isla Fisher or artificially-enhanced like Riley Keough and Christina Hendricks makes no difference to us — we’ll take ‘em all. Here are 10 of our favorite celebrity shades of red…
Well, well, well! If it isn’t Pink (P!nk? I refuse), looking decidedly unlike her usual self with a new set of hair extensions on one side and a buzz cut on the other. A celeb sporting a new weave is rarely newsworthy (they just seem to, like, accumulate more hair every day), but this may very well be the first time we’ve seen Pink without her trademark shorn ‘do. I think she looks great — and, strangely enough, a lot like Busy Philipps-gone-bad. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Controversial opinion: I love a guy with a man bun. By that I mean, I love a guy who has just enough hair to pull it back into a small bun. I don’t particularly care for long, flowing locks on a man, nor do I like men’s hair pulled back into a ponytail. No, no, my lust for men’s updos is limited explicitly to the man bun, which, lucky for me, you can find in droves in Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. A couple weeks ago, I followed a guy for five blocks simply because of how hot his man bun was. This weekend, I played a rousing game of “Spot The Man Bun” while having drinks at a bar in Bushwick, Brooklyn, and came up with five in as many minutes. You know where else spotting man buns is like shooting fish in a barrel? Hollywood! Here are 16 famous dudes doing the man bun thing…
Including the “Crispy Fried Blonde,” “The Sail Boat With Wandering Part,” and “The Dirty Face Curtain” — see them all on TruTV!
We don’t know if it’s a case of teen angst or a latent desire to follow in mom’s (former) footsteps, but Madonna‘s 16-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon is a certified badass in the making. The teenager has shirked her famous mother’s strict, borderline puritanical upbringing in favor of cigarettes, piercings, handsome show-biz boyfriends, and now… green hair! Lola was spotted out in her hometown of New York City over the weekend showing off her new verdigris locks, and I have to say, I’m kind of into it. In fact, I had green hair myself when I was 16! So yeah, consider me 100 percent on board with Lourdes’s new look.
Plenty of celebs love themselves some unnaturally-colored hair, and green is a particular favorite. Check out similar looks on Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and more in the gallery above!
Jennifer Lawrence just cut her long locks into a very ’70s-inspired shoulder-length bob. She looks good — she’s Jennifer Lawrence, don’t forget — but shoulder length hair can be hard to pull off.
I should know — I’m in the throes of growing out my pixie cut and practically want to weep in frustration. My hair is really thick and has a tendency to do a little upturned flip when it hits my shoulders, which gives my hair an unwanted wacky edge.
In any case, take a look at these nine stellar celeb haircuts, which all work to varying degrees. And vote for your favorite in our poll after the jump… Keep reading »
