Hair That's Hot!!!!
This section examines the best celebrity styles Hair Fans have seen lately - posted here even before they hit the Top Ten or enter a Super-Hair War. We update our Hot List often, as new styles and women come our way!
NAME: Shannon Layburn
WHO IS SHE: Actress/singer/model based in North Carolina, seen primarily in commercials and small movie roles such as in Allegiant
HER STYLE: Long sidepart, with hints of wave that come and go with the situation
WHY WE LIKE IT: “Great color! Looks soft,” wrote the Hair Fan who suggested her. And she shows no hesitation to have it close to her left eye, even in “demo reel” videos. Yet from what we could see, she knows how to keep styles out of her face.
SUPER-HAIR? She has a YouTube channel where you can see her in a wide range of situations. In one acting clip, a strand of hair dangles in front of her right eye – probably on purpose.
And here's the amazing thing: our Hair Fan may not have realized this young woman is only 14 years old! Yet her video resume shows she's grown up with years of impressive hair. Like many of today's talented teens, she's made videos in hopes of getting a big break from Disney or Nickelodeon. We wish her well in achieving that – and hope she doesn't succumb to photographers who like hair messy. [Posted 9/15/16]
NAME: Lindsay Sloane
WHO IS SHE: Actress currently appearing in the remade U.S. comedy The Odd Couple
HER STYLE: Shoulder-length or a touch longer, with natural waves and bangs (she's admittedly had many other looks)
WHY WE LIKE IT: It's an all-purpose style that's ready to handle all kinds of physical comedy – and probably challenges off the set as well. While she's added bangs only recently, they stay in line well and add to the interest for Hair Fans.
SUPER-HAIR? With this look, we think so. We found one picture where wind from behind couldn't blow her hair down – and that was when her hair was longer and bang-free. If she could handle that then, the control undoubtedly is stronger now. We didn't notice this woman when her hair was long and high-risk – but now that it's “safer,” we're suddenly attracted to it. Odd, but true. [Posted 9/2/16]
NAME: Allison Schmitt
WHO IS SHE: Olympic medal-winning U.S. swimmer
HER STYLE: Mid-length, with adjustable natural curls
WHY WE LIKE IT: She knows how to make those adjustments look good, while keeping the styles in place. When she first unpins her hair, the curls probably are tight rings. She responds with plenty of teasing on top and headbands. If she prepares the hair straighter, such as in her Twitter photo at left, the teasing still works – and she probably adds spray for strong control.
SUPER-HAIR? We found one or two close calls, including one in an ad for chocolate milk. But there's no evidence of her hair dropping in an eye, so our answer is yes. She reminds us of one of this site's first Olympic “style stars,” diver Laura Wilkinson. We don't know if her hair will stay constantly wet beyond Rio de Janeiro, but we hope it's down more often.

NAME: Chelsea Krost
WHO IS SHE: Listed online as an author, radio-TV host, health coach, entrepreneur – and all-around expert in “millennials” (since she is one)
HER STYLE: Long sidepart with varying amounts of wave (we think full curls on her are best)
WHY WE LIKE IT: She goes big, loose and daring with her hair – and from what we've found, it works for her. She knows how to go “up and over” with her part, to help her style handle windy conditions. And when her waves are flowing, they're a nice distraction for Hair Fans in any case.
SUPER-HAIR? This one is an awfully close call. One picture in an image search has hair covering 33% of her left eye, but not quite all of it. Otherwise, she seems as smart about hair as she is people in their twenties. We'll give her a tentative yes – hoping the rising generation cares about hair as much as she does. [Posted 8/4/16]
NAME: Ayden Mayeri
WHO IS SHE: Actress and writer, currently appearing in the movie Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates
HER STYLE: Medium-long sidepart; usually on the straight side, but the Hair Fan who suggested her offered a picture with waves
WHY WE LIKE IT: “Gorgeous color and body,” that Hair Fan wrote. The body certainly grabbed our attention. She seems to keep it in line with little more than a teasing combover at the crown; a part line for her is hard to find.
SUPER-HAIR? The answer was waiting on her website – and it's no. A picture in her gallery shows that thick long hair dangling down, as she turns over the opposite shoulder. Sadly, the right eye is covered. But if we were Mike or Dave, we'd happily ask this woman to join us for a date – and then plot some way to work on her hair (if you know what we mean) all evening long. [Posted 7/22/16]
NAME: Hayley Orrantia
WHO IS SHE: Singer, songwriter and actress, appearing on TV in The Goldbergs and touring with Brad Paisley
HER STYLE: Medium-long sidepart, who's impressing us with rolling waves in her TV role
WHY WE LIKE IT: She grabbed our attention in Goldbergs season three with styles that would bring teenage Hair Fans out of seclusion. The best ones for us have curls that seem ready to bounce all day – cleverly distracting attackers from a well-teased flip at the top of her forehead, which really keep the styles in place.
SUPER-HAIR? We were all set to rush her into the Top Ten – but then we checked her Twitter feed, and found a masthead promoting an album with a couple of strands across her left eye. But give her TV show credit for one thing: it has a daughter who seems to care about great hair as much as her on-camera mom. [Posted 7/8/16]
NAME: Lauren Vizza
WHO IS SHE: TV news anchor in Shreveport, LA, who once won the “Miss Louisiana” competition
HER STYLE: Medium-long sidepart, with bouncy-looking curl from the shoulders down
WHY WE LIKE IT: A Hair Fan told us it's “healthy, soft-looking with rich color.” She also doesn't seem to use a lot of spray on it for hold; teasing at the crown clears the forehead, then spray might be added to right-side hair swept back with round brushing.
SUPER-HAIR? There's one provocative photo on her Facebook page where she pushes it toward the right eye, but stops short. Beyond that, her closest call may have been the night she was crowned Miss Louisiana. But she knew how to save the hair then, and she's undoubtedly more skilled at it now. It looks like the hair hotbed of Shreveport has found another winner – and we thank you for sharing her. (Posted 6/24/16)
