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: JinJoo Lee
WHO IS SHE: Self-proclaimed “Guitar Girl” in the dance band DNCE
HER STYLE: Medium-long with light bangs; normally straight and with frequently-changing colors
WHY WE LIKE IT: With poses like this one, she almost dares you to try to bring her hair down into her eyes. But the bangs normally are cut deep and well, to prevent that. They're not thick enough to provide some forehead mystery, but they do their job (protecting the face) while holding pretty well.
SUPER-HAIR? When she's posing, it can be. When she's on stage performing and she lets herself go.... well, enough photos exist to prove that hair can fly into her eyes. We know some Hair Fans wouldn't mind that, and might buy concert tickets to see if it can happen. But we hope it doesn't happen too often, because we don't really think she's a hair DuNCE.

NAME: Maren Morris
WHO IS SHE: Country singer; winner of 2016 CMA Award for Best New Artist
HER STYLE: Shoulder to mid-length, at her best when she displays a wave or curl (she went all the way with them for our photo from the CMA's)
WHY WE LIKE IT: She hits several of our hair buttons – by having curls (many Hair Fans like “projects,” you know), knowing how to make them look good, and knowing how to keep them well-controlled. They held as she sang her hit song My Church, which is better than other CMA first-timers have done.
SUPER-HAIR? The problem here is that she's also worn her hair straight. That's led to her riskiest moments. And on one “straight night” at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, a photographer caught her with hair bending down and covering an eye. So our answer is no. But she finished second in our poll for the best hair of CMA night, and we think on any given night in country music she can be a contender with the best. Faith Hill and Carrie Underwood, you are hereby warned. (Posted 11/12/16)
NAME: Christen Press
WHO IS SHE: Forward on the U.S. women's national soccer team, as well as Chicago Red Stars
HER STYLE: Currently an armpit-length sidepart, probably naturally straight with waves added
WHY WE LIKE IT: When your hair is in a ponytail on the pitch and it gets our attention, you're doing something right. That's what happened when we saw her enter a “friendly” match against Switzerland. She displayed great thickness, even without waves. That inspired us to an online check, where pictures indicate she rightly consider her hair a strength. Even if only the right side is in front of her shoulders, we think Hair Fans would want to reach for it – especially if the waves are there.
SUPER-HAIR? We were certainly rooting for her – but sadly, there's a picture on Pinterest where the right-side hair slumped over her eye. (We're not sure exactly where, but it showed up in a search.) Yet we can understand why she's posed for modeling shoots. May more soccer players follow her im-Press-ive hair example. [Posted 10/28/16]
NAME: Tori Anderson
WHO IS SHE: Actress appearing in the new TV series No Tomorrow; formerly in the cable series Open Heart
HER STYLE: Medium-long waves, which can be “beachy” or well-set
WHY WE LIKE IT: We're assuming her waves are natural, and she knows how to use them for style control. A little gentle mixing can twist the ends into a curl that's difficult for wind or humans to shake and loosen.
SUPER-HAIR? While it's difficult to loosen, pictures online show it can be done. And at the end of the series's second episode, a steamy romantic moment ended with the hair dangling over her left eye. So the hair looks very nice – but we wish it held like there was No Tomorrow. [Posted 10/14/16]
NAME: Michelle Collins
WHO IS SHE: Comedian who hosts the U.S. talk show Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise; former co-host of The View (and not the British actress)
HER STYLE: The Hair Fan who suggested her specifically recommended this look from the final night of season 2 – a mid-length well-brushed style with a part slightly off-center
WHY WE LIKE IT: “Amazing hair – super, even!” wrote the Hair Fan. The sections closest to her eyes were brushed back, and probably sprayed down around her shoulders. Sections from farther back were brought up-front, with the brushed-back sections serving as a “guard” for them so they wouldn't get loose. The brush-back weakened in the course of the hour, but the style kept a perfect line despite her bouncing around in the chair at times.
SUPER-HAIR? In a studio setting, this style held very well. But if she were placed in “Paradise” - you know, with a breeze blowing on a tropical beach – she'd probably need the “ultimate hold” spray to escape a hair collapse. This woman has displayed styles covering an eye on red carpets, so her personal record is one of defeat. But we encourage more women to try this look, see how Super-strong they can make it - then please show us the results. [Posted 9/30/16]
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.
