January Jones Goes Red, Plus A Quiz!

January Jones is well known for her icy blonde locks — they’re the calling card of her “Mad Men” character Betty Draper. But just today, January was spotted sporting a head full of red hair — with long red extensions, even. Is she trying to cut in on Christina Hendricks’ trademark look? What do you think of her new red look?

And while we’re here, let’s play a little game. With red hair all the rage in Hollywood — from Christina Hendricks to Julianne Moore to Lindsay Lohan — would you be surprised to learn that many of these famous manes came from a bottle? Keep clicking through this slideshow and see if you can guess whether each star’s carrot top is for real — or totally fake.

Stop the presses! The Olsen twins aren’t exactly identical at the moment. It seems that Mary-Kate decided to channel the dark side — of her hair, that is — by dyeing her typically blonde locks brown. The world is falling apart.

20 Celebs Who’ve Dip-Dyed Or Streaked Their Hair

Earlier this week, Lauren Conrad arrived at a book signing — for her fourth novel, The Fame Game (the first book in a new trilogy) – with a decidedly noticeable new ‘do. Her hair was pulled back in a lady-like high ponytail … the ends of which were dyed a florescent hot pink. Conrad has dip-dyed her hair before, but this is her brightest go at it yet and I love it! I’ve been thinking of doing something similar, maybe even just for a couple weeks before my next big hair cut. Winona has pink streaks in her blonde hair, while our girl Kate Torgovnick has been rocking a single blue streak for years — and both look fab. What do you think of the look? [TooFab]

Wait, before you answer, let’s look at more examples of this punky trend in action. I was sort of surprised to discover just how many celeb ladies had either dip-dyed their hair or added colorful streaks to their locks — and I’m not just talking about the Nicki Minaj’s of the world. Click on to see what I mean and then tell me whether this is a look you’d try!

Hair Dos & Don’ts: Good Crazy Color Vs. Bad Crazy Color

I cannot lie: there must be a bit of Hot Topic teen buried somewhere within me, because I have an undeniable attraction to unnaturally-hued hair, specifically colors more commonly found in a 64-pack of Crayolas — you know, the nice one with the sharpener. But like any hair color (or trend, for that matter) some people carry it well, while others … not so much. Luckily, celebrities have taken to testing the waters on this adventurous creative-cool look, giving us some pretty good examples of what and what not to do. Check out the good versus the bad (in my opinion — your thoughts may vary!) in the gallery above.

Hair Dos: Spring Brunette Inspiration From The Stars

How to make 2012 the year of good hair. Read More »

We have been having some beautifully, apocalyptically warm weather in New York the past few days, and I am feeling it. I’m like a completely different person from winter to summer — seriously though, aren’t we all? — and the sunshine feels so good. In fact, it makes me want to buy things.

I may be unique, though, in that the first thing that crosses my mind as something I must get in anticipation of the season is not sundresses or even sandals. It’s highlights. My extremely dark, cool-toned hair in its natural state serves me just fine in the fall and winter, but man, does spring call for some lightening up. I haven’t dyed my hair in over a year since a near-catastrophic incident involving a box of bleach and a blowdryer held too close (shout out to my dad for being there to shove my head under the faucet!), so I’m going to have to get reacquainted with hanging out in a stylist’s chair with foils on my head, but I think I’m ready.

The best kind of highlights, the kind I covet, are glossy, healthy, and expensive-looking, regardless of how much they actually cost. I like to enter the salon with photographic reference, perhaps even annotated, so who better to field hair color inspiration from than these famous brunette beauties? The real question is: will I go the traditional route or opt for ombre? Decisions, decisions…

Would You Try: Kevin Murphy’s Color Bug?

Long gone are my middle school days of Manic Panic and Kool-Aid experimentations. But, when I went to the salon last week, I found myself insanely jealous of the girl in the chair next to me who was getting her long locks dyed an ombre magenta. Then my stylist took out a wondrous, magic tool: Kevin Murphy’s Color.Bug. Available in three colors — purple, pink, and orange — the little capsules dispense wash-out pigments to your hair. All you need do is apply a product to dampen the hair first (so color sticks to it), and rub the Bug into your strands. Washes out after one night. If I had longer hair, I’d definitely be into this. For short-haired gals, it might be overpowering. What do you think? [Kevin Murphy]
