“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]
I’ve already reviewed all the fashion moments from last night’s Emmy Awards, but the hair and makeup almost stole the spotlight — in good and bad ways. Click on to see my picks for the best hair and makeup. Connie Britton, we need to talk….
Julie is on vacation in Morocco this week, but I’m pretty sure that she would agree usually-adorable Jeremy Davies looked like he had issues at this weekend’s Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Flock of Seagulls called and wants their hair back, dude. What is happening here? [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
“I have to for roles. But if I had it my way, I would have just kept it short forever. Of course, men like long hair. There’s no two ways about it. The majority of the boys around me were like, ‘Why did you do that? That’s such an error.’ And I was like, ‘Well, honestly, I don’t really care what you think!’ I’ve never felt so confident as I did with short hair—I felt really good in my own skin.”
– Emma Watson, who stars in the film version of the young adult novel “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower,” talks with Glamour about getting her infamous pixie cut last year. God, dudes are so weird about hair length, aren’t they? See a few more photos from the shoot above and at the link! [Glamour]
Katy Perry is no stranger to Crayola-colored hair, having long eschewed her natural blonde (!) for every which shade of the Manic Panic rainbow, but this is the first time we’ve seen the songstress looking so … fiery! The September cover of French fashion mag L’Officiel casts Katy in a warmer, more romantic light, offsetting the shock of copper hair with a pretty peach dress and subtle rosy makeup (I seriously hope she swapped numbers with the makeup artist from this shoot). It’s a solid departure from her usual over-the-top all-the-makeup-at-once fare, but would it be wrong for me to suggest that Katy looks really good channeling a touch of Florence Welch, orange hair and all?

I know Elisabeth Moss is best known as Peggy on “Mad Men,” but to me, she will always be the woman with the soft voice and the headache in that Excedrin commercial. Just thinking about that commercial gives me a friggin’ explosive migraine. Anyway! Moss has to be kind of dowdy to play Peggy, so I’m stoked that in her real life she’s decided to take the hair bull by the tawny tendrils of the hair horns and go blonde! And short! I think it looks great. What say you?
Gotta say, we love a gal with the courage to go short … real short. Miley Cyrus, always eager to show just how “edgy” she really is despite her achy-breaky roots, chopped off all her hair in favor of a partially shaved, asymmetrical platinum blonde crop that would make Annie Lennox jealous. I lack the balls for such a ‘do, but on Miley, I love it.
Crucial life question: why isn’t Lizzy Caplan more famous? There are sooooo many reasons to love her, starting with Janis Ian, of course. I am not necessarily a fan of this pirate wench-y outfit she wore to the premiere of “The Campaign,” but I do strongly agree with the fantastic bob she’s rocking. I can’t wait to see her in “Bachelorette,” which premiered at Sundance, with Kirsten Dunst and Isla Fisher — I have very high hopes. Oh, and did you know that Lizzy has been dating Matthew Perry since 2006?! I did not. You learn something new (and vital) every day.
