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: Ana Cabrera

WHO IS SHE: Denver-based correspondent for CNN

HER STYLE: Medium-long sidepart, with varying degrees of wave

WHY WE LIKE IT: We saw one report where her hair seemed ultra-thick with light wave, and was perfectly set with no tuck-backs or pins whatsoever. She didn't move much, giving us a lot to admire. Her hair isn't always that plush, but it's marvelous when it is.

SUPER-HAIR? After reviewing her Facebook page, we're thinking so. She found a way to keep her hair out of her eyes, even when snow was blowing across her face and she was caught without a winter coat. She's proof "anchor hair" can be both well-prepared and resourceful. [Posted 7/13/14]

NAME: Rainie Yang

WHO IS SHE: Actress, TV host and singer from Taiwan

HER STYLE: Mid-length with a bit of wave and thick bangs covering the forehead

WHY WE LIKE IT: The Hair Fan who suggested her and our photo summed it up this way: "Very soft looking full bangs, nice slight wave." We love a combination like this. Thick hair should be harder to move from wind or other factors. Waves add a bit of weight to the overall style. Bangs keep the eyes clear, and raise an interesting question about how strongly they can hold under pressure. They're also cut deeply enough toward the ears to provide plenty of room for the long hair to manuever. The result is a somewhat defensive cut, yet beautiful and prepared to stay that way.

SUPER-HAIR? An answer came quickly, in a review of her acting career - and it's no. The picture we received and we posted is from 2007. Her hair was styled for the 2010 film The Child's Eye with longer bangs and a sidepart - and those bangs dropped in her left eye several times. (And more recent photos show her current cut is much shorter.) Times change - and much as we wish some Super-styles would not, some women do it to our disappointment. But our photo displays a style we wish a lot of women would emulate. [Posted 6/28/14]

NAME: Dr. Mireille Toledano

WHO IS SHE: Senior Lecturer in Epidemiology at Imperial College London, making news for a study on the impact of cell phones on children

HER STYLE: Medium-long and not quite center (oops) centre-parted, with a bit of natural wave

WHY WE LIKE IT: When we glanced at her on the TV news, her thickness made us stop and pay attention. She seems to have it naturally, without doing a lot of noticeable work on styling. She's prepared to use her ears to secure the hair when trouble comes.

SUPER-HAIR? We found no sign of her hair dropping in her eyes. But our answer must be a qualified yes. Our own online check found a scarcity of evidence - surely not enough for a research journal to accept. But we'd be delighted to put this hair under a microscope for extensive study.

NAME: Giselle Achecar

WHO IS SHE: Host/chef of the cooking program Eco-Rico, which we spotted on Mi Casa TV; also a voiceover actress under the name Giselle Loren

HER STYLE: Chin to shoulder-length natural curls

WHY WE LIKE IT: Cooking in a kitchen usually means some heat and steam, which can make hairstyles droop and melt. Not so with this woman. She prepares her style to have a clean forehead, with hair well off her face thanks to subtle teasing and some "curl twisting" - and it stays there firmly. We only noticed slight wilting of the curls in several episodes (and we thank the network for presenting a Sunday evening "marathon" of her, so we could tell). And if that's not enough, sometimes she breaks out in spontaneous Latin dance steps while she cooks - yet the hair holds strongly even then.

SUPER-HAIR? From what we've seen, she has it. If any curl starts to weaken, it probably will hit her forehead and warn her in time to make an adjustment. Others can have Giada and Sandra - we think we found a chef with Super-Hair ahead of the trend. [Posted 5/31/14]

NAME: Milana Vayntrub

WHO IS SHE: Actress in short films and commercials, currently playing "Lily" the AT&T store employee

HER STYLE: Medium-long sidepart with graduated bangs getting longer beyond the forehead

WHY WE LIKE IT: The Hair Fan who suggested her didn't give a reason. But there's an interesting mix here of beauty, caution and mystery. The beauty is in the ball of thick curl in front of the left shoulder. The caution in the way the right side is tossed behind her shoulder. And there's mystery to us in those bangs. Would they be long enough to fall in her eye under tough conditions?

SUPER-HAIR? The style in the AT&T ads actually has small sections on either side tied back. Under our definition, that doesn't count as Super-Hair. Other pictures we found online show even more enticing (as in thicker) hair, with some awfully close and dangerous moments - but none with her styles in her eyes. So to borrow from one of her ads, we'll give her a qualified "yup." [Posted 5/17/14]

NAME: Maya Foa

WHO IS SHE: Investigator with the British activist group Reprieve, specializing in opposing criminal executions

HER STYLE: Long, loose and well-defined curls

WHY WE LIKE IT: The key phrase here is "well-defined." Her curls are tight, yet they tend to be round instead of frizzy. Plenty of "curly girls" will tell you that's not easy to accomplish. Look up a CBS News interview with her in the week of our post, and you'll find the hair has both movement and good control.

SUPER-HAIR? There's not much evidence online to consider -- and we're sure she'd argue compelling evidence is required to convict someone of a hairstyle collapse. So she's "Super" at this writing. This site is about great hair, more than moral and political positions. And we consider this woman a great example of confident curls in action. [Posted 5/3/14]

NAME: Lyndsey Doolen

WHO IS SHE: Actress in sketches and TV commercials; our photo shows her appearing as "Liz" in an ad for Dairy Queen

HER STYLE: Medium-long sidepart, normally straight but occasionally with added wave

WHY WE LIKE IT: Thick hair sitting this close to the eyes tends to get our attention. When the left side seems to defy gravity, that attention goes up. She seems to keep the hold strong by using well-blended waves, and probably some spray. Her website shows she's not afraid to wear her hair in even more daring, yet holding ways.

SUPER-HAIR? We thank her for testing this style at the start of the commercial, with a second or two of dancing. It looked from an angle like the left side dropped. A check of her "reels" left no doubt, as the hair falls in her eyes a few times. Yet when we saw this woman with big eyes and thick red hair, we were reminded of a young Debra Messing -- and if she keeps the hair looking sharp, the future could be bright. [Posted 4/18/14]

NAME: Sheila Dharmarajan

WHO IS SHE: Business reporter for CNBC and Yahoo

HER STYLE: Shoulder-length sidepart worn on the long side, often with flipped ends

WHY WE LIKE IT: "Her hair always looks very silky," wrote the Hair Fan who suggested her - adding praise for "great body and thickness" and a style that "doesn't look too stiff." Our photo from her Twitter account may be one of the stiffer moments, with spray probably added on her right side. We're left to wonder if spray also is used to keep the flipped sections in line. If it is, it's kept on the light side.

SUPER-HAIR? Based on what we could check online, it is. She's worn her hair longer and riskier, with seemingly no spray at all. Yet we think her current length is great for her, as she can vary the amount of flexing bounce and hold for the situation she faces. A "down market" with her hair would be a shock. [Posted 4/4/14]
