Hair Model Citizen: Sweet As Apple Pie

“Ugly Betty” star America Ferrera was having an exceptionally good hair day at the “Save the Children” benefit last night in Soho, New York City. She skipped the way messy bedhead trend in favor of something a little more formal, but still managed to look cute and age-appropriate. To get the look: Blow-dry hair; separate the top layer on the crown; work in a bit of volumizer, like Matrix Amplify Full Body Texturizer; and use a rat-tailed comb to create some lift. Tie with a hair band — it doesn’t have to look perfect — then use a flat-iron to make the ends look silky smooth like they do here, which is a nice contrast to the more textured crown. Hairspray optional. Keep reading »

Hair Model Citizen: Elvis Presley’s Hair Scraps

I may have missed the Elvis craze, but ever since I was treated to a private tour of Graceland, I’ve been intrigued by the King. Obviously, intrigued is a far cry from obsessed, and you’d have to be to purchase this “large quantity of hair” for sale by Leslie Hindman Auctioneers of Chicago later this month. Apparently, this model citizen was shaved off his highness’s head when he was drafted into the U.S. Army and shed his famous locks for a military issue crew cut. This pile of seemingly innocuous hair is estimated to be worth somewhere between $8,000 and $12,000. For serious. To get the look, firmly press electric shaver to head and keep a broom close by.

Hair Model Citizen: Dita Gives Good Head

Nobody works glamorous, 1940s pinup-girl style like the one and only Dita Von Teese. She gets an honorable citation today for denouncing the modern trend of sloppy ‘dos by sticking with a classic formula that looks good on her every time. Here’s how you can recreate the look: Treat slightly damp, towel-dried hair to a dose of Redken Crystal Curls Defining Shine Gel. Divide hair into multiple sections (about two inches each), and roll into large curlers, securing with bobby pins. Either go to sleep (if you’re doing this overnight) or use a blowdryer to completely dry your hair. Remove curlers, part to one side, and touch up with hairspray for hold and to smooth flyaways. Hey, we didn’t say looking this good was easy. [Madrid, 10/5/09] Keep reading »

Hair Model Citizen: Maybe She Sold Her Soul To The Devil

We seriously can’t wait for “The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus” to come out, but for now, we’ll settle for its star, Model Citizen Lily Cole’s outstanding hairdo. She could’ve gone for a perfectly polished blow-dry (like the ones we’re beginning to see on the red carpet again), but we like this toned-down version. To get the look, blow-dry until it’s almost there but the ends are ever so slightly damp. Work a cream stylant like John Frieda Straight Fixation Smoothing Creme into the ends and twist large sections (about four total) around with your fingers. Air-dry and traipse off to your film premiere or, ah, work. [Paris, 9/30/09] Keep reading »

Hair Model Citizen: Amy Winehouse Puss

This gorgeous Siamese cat deserves an honorable mention for pulling off Amy Winehouse‘s signature beehive with elegant aplomb. To get the look, you’ll need a rat tail comb and multiple doses of hairspray. This one should do the trick. [Pets Rock 2010] Keep reading »

Hair Model Citizen: Little Miss Perfect

Sarah Paxton is filming “The Beautiful Life” and she is giving me a serious case of nostalgia in terms of remembering that evil blond cheerleader that totally ruined my life in high school. (OK, we didn’t have sports and it was art school and everyone was really nice.) But! This hair is, like, traditional pretty, pretty princess hair that’s modern because it’s got texture and it’s just slightly messy. To copy this bitch’s perfect hair (I mean the girl, not the dog), apply Garnier Fructis Style Soft Curl Cream to slightly damp hair, twist large sections with your fingers, and allow to air dry. To get a perfectly mussed look, rub a balloon on your head for a little extra static. Seriously. It works. [NYC, 9/23/09] Keep reading »

Hair Model Citizen: Ain’t Miss Beehivin’

This sculptural beehive was spotted at Danielle Scutt’s showing at London Fashion Week. And while we fully salute this Hair Model Citizen, we can’t say this is a runway trend we’ll be rocking anytime soon. [London, 9/21/09] Keep reading »

Hair Model Citizen: Kelly Rowland

We award Kelly Rowland (seen here in the tents at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week) the Hair Model Citizen Award for keeping it nice and simple by sporting soft, natural-looking (though we know that always takes work) hair. To get a similar look, apply Curls’ Curl Gel-les’c to wet hair, create a thick braid, allow to air dry and take it out. [New York, 9/18/09] Keep reading »
