6 Life Lessons From Connie Britton’s Hair (In GIFs!)

6 Life Lessons From Connie Britton's Hair (In GIFs!)

Today a very special day, friends. It’s Connie Britton’s birthday! To say we love Connie would be a massive understatement. We are ridiculously obsessed with Connie. As Tami Taylor, she gave us the mother/best friend/wife/sister we always wanted. As Rayna James, she became our new favorite fictional country singer. As Vivien Harmon on the first season of “American Horror Story,” we prayed for her triumph over that scary haunted house. In real life, she’s a Planned Parenthood-supporting badass. There are countless ways we could pay homage to the Goddess that is Connie, but today we’d like to focus on just one of her many, many amazing features: her hair. So many valuable life lessons can be gleaned from Connie Britton’s famous golden mane, such as… Keep reading »

TV Style Stealer: Rayna Jaymes’ Hot Halter Top From “Nashville”

Rayna James Nashville Halter Top

You guys. I have a very difficult confession to make. I’m feeling very “meh” about this season of “Nashville.” I know! I can barely even admit it to myself! I’m just having trouble getting excited about any of the current storylines, and so many of the characters I loved in season 1 are coming across as boring/annoying in season 2. Amelia thinks it’s because Rayna has been wearing her hair up too much, which is valid – not allowing Connie Britton’s hair to flow freely is a travesty. How are you guys liking this season? Do you share my ambivalence or are you super into it??

Even with my hesitations about the plot, this season’s fashion game has been on point. Frisky reader Sara requested a Style Stealer for the fabulous silk halter top Rayna wore to the Edgehill party in last week’s episode (paired with one of the aforementioned sacrilegious ponytails). Get the shopping details for her exact top, plus a more affordable option, after the jump! Keep reading »

In this brief-but-totally-endearing interview, Goddess/actress/hair role model Connie Britton finally revealed the secret behind her legendary locks (in addition to the fact that she has constant access to a professional hairstylist, which is not really a secret). Here’s a hint: it involves NOT doing something that most people do to their hair way too often. Click play to find out! [Huffington Post]

Connie Britton, Tina Fey, Michelle Dockery, And Elisabeth Moss Had Dinner And Didn’t Invite Us

You guys, it was SO hard not to put a frowning emoticon at the end of the headline of this post. I mean, I think of Connie Britton as my Best Friend Forever that I just haven’t quite met yet (cue Michael Bublé singing our theme song), so whenever she plans something fun and doesn’t include me, I feel very hurt (and yes, I do realize how completely stalker-ish that sounds, and no, I’m not getting help). So for her to plan a pre-Emmys dinner with my other BFFIHMY (Best Friend Forever I Haven’t Met Yet) Tina Fey, plus “Downton Abbey”‘s Michelle Dockery and “Mad Men”‘s Elisabeth Moss? Man, that one stings. The only way this dinner roster could have been better is if Christina Hendricks replaced Elisabeth Moss, because, as Amelia pointed out, “Don’t need no Scientology chatter while I eat!” Other than that though, this really is like one of those fantasy dinner parties come to life, and I look forward to my invitation not getting lost in the mail next time.

Connie Britton Friday Night Lights Movie

“I didn’t think I’d have a baby on my own. But there’s a lot that comes out of having a plan and then seeing that there’s another way you can go. If you hold hard and fast to the plan regardless of where you’re at, then you go against the flow of your life.”

–”Nashville” star Connie Britton serves up a mega inspiring dose of truth in an interview with Ladies’ Home Journal about letting life unfold and being brave enough to deviate from your original plans (I just have to let my astrology obsession flag fly for a second here and say she is SUCH an evolved Pisces and I love it). Oh, and between all this awesome life advice, she also dropped a major bombshell: the “Friday Night Lights” movie script is finished (!!!!!). “I think it’s just a matter of finding a time when everyone can do it,” she said of the FNL movie. Dear God, please let this time happen sooner rather than later. Rayna James is great and all, but I need more Tami Taylor in my life. [Us Weekly]

Connie Britton Teams Up With Planned Parenthood For Limited Edition T-Shirt

What would Tami Taylor do? Stand with Texas women, of course. The “Friday Night Lights” and “Nashville” star has joined Planned Parenthood in promoting a limited edition T-shirt referencing her FNL character supporting the pro-choice women of Texas. In a Planned Parenthood’s press release about the shirts, Britton says:

“The character Tami on ‘Friday Night Lights’ is a Texas woman deeply committed to her community and to standing up for what is right for her neighbors and the people she loves. I have been inspired by how people around the country have united to stand with the women of Texas, and I can’t help but think that, in this moment, we all have the opportunity to join with and become strong, powerful Texas men and women.”

The limited edition T-shirts, which come in orange and white, are available online only through the month of July so you’d better snag yours here now. So, when a movie is made about Texas’ feminist army and their work fighting Senate Bill 5 — which would all but obliterate Texas’ women’s access to abortion — Britton is a shoe-in to play state Senator Wendy Davis right?
