If I added up all the time I’ve spent washing, drying, curling, styling, spraying, cutting, coloring, discussing, obsessing, loving, hating, and debating my hair, surely it would add up to . . . more time than I care to admit. I’ve had all lengths (mostly long) and all colors (mostly blonde) over the years. Each style tells a story. December 2007 (long, blonde). Just married and oh, so in love! May 2008 (short, blonde). Ready for a “change” and chopped it to my shoulders. June 2009 (medium, brunette). Getting tired of appointments with the colorist and decided it would be better to just do a solid brunette to avoid all that maintenance. May 2010 (pony tail always, blondish). Bummed to discover that the brunette also required maintenance, and faded so quickly, so . . . going back to blonde- but in the Houston heat, pony tails work best. “Hair” Academy Awards In my Academy Awards of hair, those shown below would be my winners. I often wonder if it’s the hair or the gorgeous face that makes the women look so beautiful. I’m sure it’s a combination of both. Best Short– Halle Berry. This is how I like her best. She rocks it like nobody’s business. Best Long– Olivia Palermo. Looks shiny and healthy and perfectly sunkissed. Best Bald– Natalie Portman. Are you serious? She looks fabulous! Best Super Blonde– Jessica Simpson. A blonde bombshell. Best Red– Julianne Moore. Super sexy. Best Brunette– Jessica Alba. She’s done a lot of colors, but rich brown is my favorite on her. Best Bang- Reece Witherspoon. A classic beauty. Best Waves– Gisele Bundchen Best Curls– Kim Kardashian Best All Around– Jennifer Aniston. Just looks effortless and gorgeous always. Beautiful color always. I don’t know how she gets it so super-straight. Remember the really early days of Friends- naturally curly?? Who’s got your favorite hair?
