Thanks to the release of her most recent album, Teenage Dream, we've been seeing lots of Katy Perry these days. And when it comes to her beauty stylings, she's no stranger to mixing things up. From a blue Bettie Page-style wig to holographic nails to a bouncy chin-length bob, this "California Gurl" is always turning heads. Her most recent look: various blue, pink, and purple highlights woven throughout her dark hair. Are you loving it?
The wide majority of you admitted you go back to the same haircut over and over again. Maybe Victoria Beckham feels the same way. Last month, she returned to the chin-length bob that's been copied by women everywhere. But in Cannes this weekend, she showed off the long layers she sported for much of her career. Are you glad to see the return of her long and waved style, or do you like your Posh stylishly short-haired?
I have to confess that I've always had a bit of a girl crush on Alice Cullen's bobbed and flippy hairstyle in Twilight. Ashley Greene, however, the actress who plays the stylish, friendly vampire in the series, has been sporting a longer, less feathered layered bob in real life, and she sure has the chic look down pat. However, now that Eclipse is pretty much wrapping up, the actress is back to her long roots, as she debuted new extensions at the U2 concert in Pasadena yesterday, courtesy of Parlour on 3rd's Essly Powell, who worked with Ashley for nine hours to achieve this new look. Obviously we've seen Ashley in extensions before at the 2009 VMAs, but now it looks like they're here to stay. What do you think of this look? Were you loving her layered bob, or is the longer length a welcome change?
When I spoke with celebrity stylist Kristin Ess (she's the one getting all Betty Draper on the right) of LA's Warren-Tricomi salon about her work on Lauren Conrad's extensions for The Hills and the red carpet, she also very kindly agreed to answer all my burning questions about the mysterious world of these length-enhancing strands. I learned a lot, and I think you will, too. To see the first part of my fun, informative interview with Kristin, just keep reading
I got my hair cut a few months ago--- short. I used to have fairly long hair that I enjoyed, but unfortunately I get bored with my looks quite often. I used to dye my long hair a different color every few months, but I decided back in March that dyeing it just wasn't cutting it, and I wanted to do something drastic.
So, on impulse (like I do everything) I decided to go get it cut. My boyfriend fully supports me and really likes the look, but I HATE IT. He never hesitates to tell me how gorgeous he thinks I am, but I still feel unattractive. I've been growing it out, and while I think it's a cute cut, I miss my long hair and just don't feel as pretty as I used to.
I'm 5'3, weigh a normal 120 lbs and I have always felt fairly attractive until now. It has gotten past just missing my hair - I feel fat (I used to weigh 109-112 and am now 119-122) and I can't afford extensions. Are there any more tips you can give me to help me look and feel like my old self again? I feel ugly.
