Hairstyles in the News November 1, 2010

Celebrity hairstyles continue to catch our attention and this week is no exception. A budding young designer was booted off a popular reality show, and while he is not technically a celebrity the popularity of Project Runway brings him into the spotlight this week. Cher proves she’s as edgy as ever and Taylor Swift is the model of beauty.

Mondo Guerra, the most recent finalist on Project Runway to be kicked off, is sporting a unique style with large curls on the crown of his short cut. While designers can get away with this extreme look, you may not be able to in the board room, but it is very daring and shows a large amount of personal style.,0,2132875.story

Jaden and Willow Smith, the very chic children of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, were spotted this week looking as fabulous as every. Jaden has his hair in a neat braided style while Willow mixes it up with a poofy curl and short sides. Willow’s video, I Whip My Hair, has been a sensation since its release a few weeks ago. Both of these young people know fashion is for fun and show their creative style every time they show up on camera.

In this photo Katy Perry shows us what colored hair extensions can do to give spark and unexpected color to a style. Extensions come in a wide variety of colors and textures. These pink and blue extensions look striking against Katy’s dark brunette locks.

Taylor Swift is seen here with long blonde curls that go from honey blonde to lighter golden blonde. This color variation is becoming popular with celebrities. You can have this graduated color with any hair color. Ask your stylist for a color consultation.

Cher has always been known for her outrageous costumes and iconic black hair. At the 2010 MTV Music Awards, perhaps her voluminous curls are just a bit of too much of a good thing. Cher is consumed in her curls and she would look better with a bit of a toned down volume, but true to form Cher takes her look to the extreme.

Perhaps you’ve seen a look this week that you’d like to try out. We’ve seen the wild and the beautiful. While you may not want to wear an exact style you’ve seen this week, your stylist can help you find a celebrity style that will match your face shape and lifestyle. Next week we’ll return to see what the celebrities are up to and what trends they are setting.

Homecoming 2010 Hairstyles

Homecoming is traditionally a time for football games, parties and formals at many schools. If you are looking for the perfect hairstyle to compliment your dress we have some ideas for you. Hot off the runways these looks are showing up in Paris, London and Hollywood. This year’s looks range from sleek and smooth to messy and bohemian. Check out these ideas and make an appointment with your stylist to look your best on this special occasion.
Messy Cignon

A new interpretation to a classic is the new French Twist. This year it is combined with braids and can either be chic and disheveled or modern and sleek. You may want to have some ribbon or beads added for an extra touch or glamor and style.
Rope Twist

This look has shown up on the runways of Matthew Williamson, Antonio Berardi and Zac Posen. Simply take two strands of hair and wind them around each other. This will form a rope that can then be twisted or braided. Twists and braids can be worn in an updo or fall over the shoulder depending on your mood and outfit. Your stylist can create a French Twist that is unique and matches your personality and style.

Another lovely style are long curly locks. Seen on music superstar Taylor Swift, the hair is curled and left long and flowing. You can wear your hair like Taylor’s or put it up in the back and let the curls cascade down your back with a bit of fringe in the front.

If your hair is not long, you can have human hair extensions added for extra length and volume. Hair accessories are hot this season and this would be a perfect way to add some color and bling to your hairstyle with a pretty hair bow or clip.

Make an appointment with your stylist well in advance to ensure that you will look your best at Homecoming and you can focus on having fun.

Oklahoma Celebrity Styles

Oklahoma is the birth place of actors, entrepreneurs, authors, comedians, singer/songwriters, and radio personalities. Though their professions are what make them recognizable and well known, lets’ face it; we also look at their style – including hairstyle. Examples:

Brad Pitt, born December 18, 1963 in Shawnee, OK, and known for movie roles, philanthropy, and his personal life. He is also a hairstyle chameleon from Sexy Shaggy at the 13th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards, to Chipped Ends at the Cine Vegas Opening Night Screening of “Ocean’s Thirteen”, to Long Style in the movie ”Troy”, and Straight Short at the premiere of “Burn After Reading”. Perhaps the look people find most appealing is the Corporate style – which is a clipper cut – short and straight.

Carrie Underwood, born March 10, 1983 in Muskogee, OK, is recognized for her country music career launch on American Idol. Carrie prefers full side-swept bangs and extreme volume to accent her blonde hair.

No matter what hairstyle she chooses, she always looks fabulous.

Reba McEntire, born March 28, 1955 in McAlester, OK is the Queen of Country, popular for her country music, acting, and stage shows. Reba also attracts attention with her fiery red hair, which she has worn long and full until a few years ago when she cut her hair and her attitude came out in full! She has worn Straight medium to the premiere of “Charlotte’s Web”, Wavy medium which is her signature style, and also

Straight short and Straight medium with the hair flared at the sides.

Jeanne Tripplehorn, born June 10, 1963 in Tulsa, OK, is an actress lauded for her role in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”. Jeanne wears her hair in a long Bob hairstyle tucked behind the ears, a very simple yet sexy style. She wore this style for the premiere of “Grey Gardens”.

James Marsden, born September 18, 1973 in Stillwater, OK is known for his roles in “27 Dresses“, “Enchanted“, and “Hairspray”. James wore his hair in a Straight short style with bangs swept to the side for the premiere of Hairspray. He also wears a Straight short style with bangs in front, a Full crop with hair cut at chin level, and a Classic short crop.

Blake Shelton, born June 18, 1976 in Ada, OK,  is recognized for his hit country single “Austin”. He wore his hair naturally in a Wavy short style to the 42nd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.

Oklahoma not only produces celebrities from nearly every field, especially entertainers, it also necessarily produces fantastic style.
