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 Jurka
WHO IS SHE: Co-anchor of the Saturday night sports wrap-up Titulares on the U.S. Telemundo network; also a NASCAR pit reporter for Mun2
HER STYLE: Mid-length and loose; apparently naturally straight, but at its best when wave or round-brush curl is added
WHY WE LIKE IT: Her styles tend to be soft-looking and touchable, without any sign of processing. So her hair can move around, but she knows how to keep it from moving in too far and covering her face. For a while, she did it with bangs -- but she's moved away from that look, and we think adding just the right amount of curves looks much better and intriguing.
SUPER-HAIR? She's had a couple of narrow escapes (including one shown on Twitter where she combines long fringe with braids). But we've found no evidence her hair has collapsed. To quote from one entry with a close call: "Angel all the time, bad... if I need to!" If this defines her approach to Super-Hair, we honestly can't find much fault with it. [Posted 3/7/14]
NAME: Kathleen Cohen
WHO IS SHE: Model based in the Atlanta area, who's appeared in several national commercials
HER STYLE: Sideparted bob described as "platinum" by the Hair Fan who nominated her
WHY WE LIKE IT: "An incredible head" of hair, the Hair Fan told us. "She's also very photogenic" - with hair good enough, we're told, to be used by animators on the FX cartoon series Archer. But we might note this Hair Fan has a bias -- because he's Kathleen's husband. We don't recall a husband ever nominating her spouse before.
SUPER-HAIR? The key question for a bob like this is whether that right side (from her perspective) can hold when the pressure's on. Her husband sent a packet of photos showing her hair in a variety of situations. A strip of hair was weak in a couple of pictures, and her right eye was almost covered in another. But we'll lean toward declaring her style unbeaten (and thus Super-Hair) for now - if only because we know better than to downgrade a woman in front of her husband. So how about it, other hubbies? Is your wife a Super-Hair bride? [Posted 2/22/14]
NAME: Megan Boone
WHO IS SHE: Actress on the TV drama The Blacklist
HER STYLE: Her iconic look in promotional ads is a shoulder-length sidepart, with an intriguing flip above her right eye (it's admittedly lower in our photo)
WHY WE LIKE IT: In an action drama, that flip is make-or-break. It seemingly must hold, because the style is likely to collapse in her face if it fails. Yet even when the flip is flatter, she finds ways to keep her hair out of her right eye. We assume she must use spray to keep it together under pressure, although there are times when the right side seems bang-short.
SUPER-HAIR? While this hair looks great in many scenes, there's been a bit too much action at times for it to stay in place. NBC's gallery of one episode proves our point, but with wonderful drama. If Hair Fans are making this "TV's number one new drama," it's completely understandable. [Posted 2/9/14]
NAME: Mikaela Shiffrin
WHO IS SHE: Alpine skier on the U.S. national team
HER STYLE: Medium-long with natural wave; has experimented with shifting sideparts and bangs
WHY WE LIKE IT: She tends to wear ponytails on the slopes, but lets the hair down afterward -- and that hair is healthy and attractive. She seems to take good care of it away from the slopes, even if most of the views are in posed "glamour shots" like our photo.
SUPER-HAIR? We found a close call of two, but nothing where her styles flopped across her eyes. Wearing ski caps on mountains certainly provides protection -- but of course, a few Hair Fans might dream to pull the caps off and see what would happen. In any case, with Lindsey Vonn out of the Sochi Winter Olympics, this young woman has a chance to seize both the athletic and hair spotlight. [Photo courtesy Today; posted 1/26/13]
NAME: Jodie Whittaker
WHO IS SHE: Actress starring in the U.S. miniseries The Assets
HER STYLE: In the miniseries set in 1985, she displays a short bob
WHY WE LIKE IT: The blondeness admittedly grabbed our attention. The risky hold of this cut kept it. The hair simply has to stick to her left ear -- and it simply does it. Very well. Our vidcap from an ABC promotional interview actually shows one of her less precise moments.
SUPER-HAIR? She's used to handling short styles (albeit as a brunette) -- and a photo search shows they've dropped once or twice in public. But we'd still recommend tuning in to watch this hair in action. She plays a CIA agent in Washington, so we're not sure how much danger her character might face. But oh, the potential drama. [Posted 1/11/14]
NAME: Nancy Moritz
WHO IS SHE: Justice on the Kansas Supreme Court; nominated at this writing for the U.S. Appeals Court
HER STYLE: Shoulder-length or slightly above; shag-ish with sideswept bangs
WHY WE LIKE IT: There's plenty of thickness in this style, with seemingly not much advance treatment. Yet from the clips we've seen, she wears it well when the court is in session. She can run her hands through it while considering oral arguments, and the result is a bit of movement without the hair falling in her right eye. Well-cut bangs seem to make the difference there.
SUPER-HAIR? Based on the available evidence, we rule it is. She's overcome a close call or two. But there's admittedly not a lot of evidence offered in this case -- and if she's confirmed to federal court, we sadly may never see this nice head of hair on camera again. [Posted 12/28/13]
NAME: Rebecca Judd
WHO IS SHE: Perhaps best to call her a "personality" in Australia, who does everything from modeling and blogging to fill-in TV weathercasting; also known as wife of Aussie Rules football star Chris Judd
HER STYLE: Medium-long or longer, parted slightly off-center and displaying a variety of waves
WHY WE LIKE IT: At its best, her hair is "blown out" for maximum thickness and bounce. And not only does she display a lot of it, she handles it as well as a top model should -- skilled in using head shakes and turns to keep it out of her face, while avoiding touching the hair to add potentially weakening oils.
SUPER-HAIR? We think she tries for it -- and from what we've seen, she often accomplishes it. But her famous 2004 "Brownlow Medal moment" with a controversial dress also brought moments when a full sidepart (and much shorter hair) drooped into her right eye. We fear she's defeated, in an awfully close call -- but we can truly say from the land of "Elle" comes another heavenly head of hair. [Posted 12/12/13]
