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: CariDee English

WHO IS SHE: Fashion model who won America's Next Top Model in 2007; currently getting attention for a prescription drug commercial

HER STYLE: Layered shoulder-length sidepart; the commercial reveals she clearly wears extensions at times

WHY WE LIKE IT: When the hair is well-prepared as in this commercial vidcap (what is she selling again?!), she has solid curls that can hold up to studio lights and perhaps even breezy beach scenes. But based on other pictures, preparation is the key; when it's not there, she's vulnerable.

SUPER-HAIR? Her Twitter page will give you an immediate answer. It has a full-flying picture of her drumming, and long hair covers her eyes. But we think that length beats the short cuts she once had. And we're sure some Hair Fans would want to get her style in such a precarious situation – although in most cases, that probably would be difficult. [Posted 4/17/15]

NAME: Tina Roy

WHO IS SHE: Senior at the University of South Carolina; backup guard for the Southeast Regional champion women's basketball team; budding rapper/songwriter

HER STYLE: Short layered sidepart, with the back stopping at the nape of the neck

WHY WE LIKE IT: Even national sports reporters are marveling about how well this style stays in line under playoff pressure. We think it's because there are similarities to the wedge made famous by Dorothy Hamill. If the shorter layers are deeply cut, a bounce forward is unlikely to put the hair at risk of getting into her eyes. And if she sprays or mousses the style before games (we don't know if she does), the hair is even more likely to hold securely.

SUPER-HAIR? This vid-cap is the closest call we've seen for her. Turning her head in full running stride during a game only brings a few bangs across the forehead. If that's the limit of her hair mussing, we give this woman an absolute yes. In an era when ponytails and stacked topknots seem to dominate college sports, this is a wonderfully refreshing change for Hair Fans. A Final Four appearance and flat-out perfection leads us to jump the “B.M.O.C.” order, and put her here. [Posted 4/3/15]

NAME: Felicity Jones

WHO IS SHE: Actress who received award nominations for the movie The Theory of Everything

HER STYLE: Currently shoulder-length, with very flexible bangs (we prefer them down across the forehead)

WHY WE LIKE IT: Her styles tend to be very well polished, even when they're styled to look a bit messy. The only strands which seem to go out of place are those bangs, and they're not long enough to put any style in danger of collapse.

SUPER-HAIR? A couple of windblown photo shoots have pushed long strands to the utter brink – but still not into her eyes. So she gets a “yes” from us for now. If Zooey Deschanel's bangs really are on the way out, we may have found a fabulous replacement. [Photo courtesy Business Insider; posted 3/20/15]

NAME: Dakota Johnson

WHO IS SHE: Actress gaining fame as a star of the movie Fifty Shades of Grey

HER STYLE: Mid-length or longer, parted around the center; usually showing fringe-y light bangs

WHY WE LIKE IT: While the bangs are not the most perfect going, they do what they're intended to do: make room for her thick styles to shine. She can go straight or display waves with equal attractiveness – often close enough to the eyes to invite Hair Fans to reach forward.

SUPER-HAIR? We're sorry to say the answer is no. She's posed for a few pictures where the hair drooped (or was self-pushed) into her eyes. There's nothing wrong with styles like hers – but for us, strong control simply moves them up to another Super-level. [Posted 3/7/15]

NAME: Andi Dorfman

WHO IS SHE: Former Assistant District Attorney in Atlanta; much better known as The Bachelorette of the 2014 TV season

HER HAIR: Medium-long, usually center-parted with a hint of wave

WHY WE LIKE IT: Precision. She seems to strive for it with her hair, and she regularly pulls it off – adding wave or curl in exactly the right spots when necessary to add holding strength. It seems to be a rare day when she pins back or even tucks back her hair.

SUPER-HAIR? We were all set to say yes – but then we rolled down on her Twitter feed to a summer day in Milwaukee. Too much wind sadly blew up her normally-perfect hair. But if we could give her a rose for trying very hard to have it, we would. And we apologize to her for putting her here long after she was in the TV spotlight. [Posted 2/21/15]

NAME: Paulina Vega

WHO IS SHE: Miss Universe 2014-15, from Colombia

HER STYLE: Mostly medium-long with a variety of wave, but with shoulder-length strips close to her eyes; she showed a slightly off-center part during the pageant

WHY WE LIKE IT: Plenty of bounce, yet solid hold when it counts. She knows how to toss and turn her hair, without going too far with it – and we say the more waves, the better. Like Miss America below, her hair seems Diana Prince-vulnerable when it's straight.

SUPER-HAIR? We think it is. Her style seemed to last from start to finish on pageant night under the floodlights, and through the follow-up interviews on TV. This woman and her hair remind us a lot of former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo – which means she has the potential to drive Hair Fans wild. [Posted 2/7/15]

NAME: Kira Kazantsev

WHO IS SHE: Miss America 2015, from New York

HER STYLE: Medium-long sidepart; we say it's better wavy/curled than straight

WHY WE LIKE IT: The duties of her crown require her to face all kinds of situations, from outdoor events to hot indoor television lights. Her styles seem to stay strong through all of them. The waves may weaken, but they're lasting long enough to make it through events without dropping completely.

SUPER-HAIR? We admittedly watched and waited several months to pass judgment on this woman, in part because some Miss Americas have burned us by wearing extensions. We don't think she's wearing them – and she's passing test after test in public. So we'll say yes for now. But we suspect one of her “straight-hair” days could do her in. [Posted 1/25/15]

NAME: Nikki Rouleau

WHO IS SHE: Host on Jewelry Television

HER STYLE: Medium-long sidepart with cheekbone-long “bangs” on either side

WHY WE LIKE IT: Based on the pictures we've seen, she likes her hair precise. Our photo from her Facebook page actually shows a daring look for her, as the grown-out bangs around her right eye look like they could fall at any moment. There must be some kind of mousse used to prevent that.

SUPER-HAIR? We admittedly don't shop for jewelry much, so we haven't seen her in action often on TV. The photo evidence indicates she has it (and we personally think her curled styles are better), so we'll give her an answer of yes. But for someone who supposedly has been a shopping host for years, we're surprised there's not much of an online track record in terms of pictures or videos. Are the diamonds on her channel that distracting? [Posted 1/10/15]
