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 often wish I had come into the world several decades earlier than my early-nineties debut (hi mom!), but one of the few benefits that make me grateful to have been an adolescent of the aughties is that I was of prime age for the glory days of “The O.C.” I am not being sarcastic; that show was fucking good. As a result of my unyielding affection for that paradigm of zeitgeist-y melodramatic (so melodramatic) teenage television, my love for Rachel Bilson runs deep. She’s just adorable in every way, even without mentioning the obvious fact that she owns one of the most crush-worthy wardrobes this side of Newport Beach. Oh, and Luke Skywalker.
Beyond that, I have never known Rachel to make a sartorial misstep, and this occasion for TCA’s Summer Party is no different. The critics, however, have spoken, and they are not liking the unusual hairstyle she sported on Sunday’s red carpet. It feels to me like an almost-hit: it would have looked really good had she mussed up the tight side to make it look a little prettier and more undone. As it is, I don’t hate the look, but there’s definitely an imbalance to it. Whatever — Rachel Bilson is still fundamentally perfect and I refuse to fault her for this slight blunder … even if said “slight blunder” vaguely channels Donald Trump.
I’m an Angelina girl 4 life, but it’s kind of impossible to hate Jennifer Aniston. She’s too milquetoast, there’s nothing to hate about her … with the exception of that foxy Justin Theroux she’s got her claws in. Mrrrrreow. Jennifer just has zero bad-girl cred no matter how hard she tries to cultivate it, and boy, does she try! Leather jackets, skinny jeans, ankle boots — make no mistake, she’s vying for a more rebellious hook-up. With that in mind, I offer an easy solution for Jen that’ll have her looking like a proper punk girlfriend in no time: bangs. As seen in this (super awkward) photo, the long, messy bangs lend her the hipness she so needs, even in a frumpy outfit as she plays a drug-peddling “mom” on the set of her new movie “We’re The Millers.” Jen has been sporting the same silky, straightforward hair for so long, and I think a teeny-tiny tweak like this could be the best bet for her stylistically. Do you think a full-on fringe would give the usually very vanilla actress an edgier appeal, or do you like her just fine just the way she is?
True story: I went to grad school in Brighton, England, the place where raves never died. Everywhere you go in Brighton, there are middle-aged people wearing neon yarn hair, a holdover from their days in the rave caves of the ’90s. Often, these rave casualties would tote around their children, and many times I felt pangs of second-hand embarrassment for the tweens whose moms and dads sported fake neon dreadlocks down to their knees. It gave me the douchechills. Willow Smith’s new neon braids remind me of those Brighton folks, but unlike them, her new hairdo is age- and life-appropriate. Whip it, girl. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
The mane man behind her new look is celebrity hairstylist David Babaii. He revealed that he was inspired by the ’60s in creating Bullock’s bangs and textured ends.
Babaii predicts this award season will be full of natural textures and waves, adding that gorgeous, shiny, red-carpet-worthy locks can be created with simply one product and, of course, the proper styling tools. Read more… Keep reading »
“Have there been disasters? I think that’s a very relative term with hair. Let’s say there have been moments I’d rather not relive, like that whole Rachel thing. I love Chris [McMillan, her hairstylist], and he’s the bane of my existence at the same time because he started that damn Rachel, which was not my best look. How do I say this? I think it was the ugliest haircut I’ve ever seen. What I really want to know is, how did that thing have legs? Let’s just say I’m not a fan of short, layered cuts on my personally, so I don’t love revisiting that particular era.”
– Jennifer Aniston admits to Allure that, oh, the most famous haircut of all time, that the rest of the universe got because she had it, is actually totally fugly. Too little, too late, Jen! You should have spoke up then! [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
