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?
