Forbes magazine effectively described the career path of Kathy Ireland in early 2012 as "Supermodel - Supermogul." Through a three-decade transition from photo shoots in swimsuits to designer rollouts as Chair/CEO, one thing has remained constant. The woman behind "Kathy Ireland Worldwide" displays a beautiful appearance, including stunningly thick long hair which can handle added wave of almost any kind.
Ireland disproved the "cover jinx" of Sports Illustrated by appearing on the front of the annual swimsuit issue three times, and posing inside it 16 times. (This photo actually is from the cover of a German magazine.) She revealed on the TV series The Doctors a styling team put "beer in a spritzer bottle," then used teasing to provide the voluminous looks many Hair Fans admired. Ireland's reputation for thick bounce placed her in the Super-Hair Ultimate 50, even though styles occasionally dropped in her eyes during her modeling career.
Forbes claims Ireland's hair actually became bigger after she turned her full-time focus toward the business world. And Ireland unveiled her own line of wigs and extensions in 2010, so the "reality" of her looks since then may be in question. Yet as long as her hair is natural while looking touchable and not outlandish, Hair Fans are likely to pay close attention.
