Style Saturday {A Hair Affair}

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! 526 May 2008 (short, blonde).  Ready for a “change” and chopped it to my shoulders. 622 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.  4620_1142864541209_1515349668_369870_6075235_n 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. James 1-3 months 158 “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.  olivia_palermo_hair_thumb[1] 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. Jessica alba Best Bang- Reece Witherspoon.  A classic beauty. Best Waves– Gisele Bundchen giselle bundchen Top 10 Richest Celebrity Designers Best Curls– Kim Kardashian kim-kardashian-portrait.jpg 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??

    Wow you look great as a brunette too! You could pull off many looks very easily. I do love Jen Aniston of course and Reese's bangs. Reese always has great hair. I tried to have bangs like that and yea, it didn't work. I look stupid with them.

    My hair is in a clippy. Every single day. 🙂

    Hands down Nancy O'Dell. Have always envied her hair. I took her picture to my stylist and said I want the brunette version of THIS!

    Had the super blond with bangs like Reese for a long time. Now it's grown out, wavy, and dark blondish… going for the Giselle look. I love ALL of your picks. I agree that Jen Aniston's hair always looks great. Such a natural "California girl" beauty.
    I feel ya about the ponytail. I think it's a mom in the summertime thang. 😉

    I change my hair all the time too. I was blonde for two years and for my wedding, then went brunette shortly after; now, a year later I'm blonde again! 🙂

    I used to change my color a lot too. The past 2 years I've kinda settled on the idea that brown is best on me and why fix what's not broken?! Now I just mess with the style (bangs, curls, braids, etc.).

    I love Olivia's hair too! It always looks so perfect! I'd like to be a fly on the wall while she dries and styles it!

    If you took Reese Witherspoon and compared her hair styles to mine you'd find that…well, she looks awesome and I just try to copy her!

    Oh I definitely have to agree with Jennifer Aniston. She has THE BEST HAIR all the time. She always looks gorgeous.

    I'd give my right arm to have her hair. LOL

    Every hairdo you've sported was awesome! Mines been blonde… blonde… oh! and the same ol' blonde! It's naturally this light and I would love to play brunette for a while but blonde roots would look like I were going bald. And that's no bueno 🙂
