A-List Hair, Now!

Rhianna

Recently I was asked to provide a photograph to go along with an interview I did for a fun little beauty magazine. Having spent the majority of my career behind the camera or next to a photographer who always carries a camera (make that- who’s assistant always carries a camera) I find that unlike the rest of the social networking world I do not posses a fat scrapbook of my daily life on film. Instead, I generally shutter at the idea of being in front of the camera. So, I took a little journey down memory lane in search of the perfect pix which ultimately  spawned an afternoon of kicks and giggles over the preposterous array of hair styles that I have indulged in over the years. And even more recently when my hair started shedding at a ridiculous rate I found myself combing the glossy pages of every celeb mag to find just the right “do”.

If you too are itching for a new look, here are some of the top most requested snips and tips from celeb hairstylists in Tinseltown.

Mid- length hair looks great with a few little waves, try a half inch curling iron for soft waves minus the pageant girl poof.

Notorious for super long hair (even if it’s sewn or glued in) celebs like J Lo, Reese Witherspoon and Taylor Swift could be a stand in for Rapunzel.

  1. I always love Reese Witherspoons hair at this particular event. I’m not sure I could do bangs though I’m afriad I’d regret it the moment I got them.

  2. As a gal with a lot of thin hair, style has always been my biggest enemy–my hair does nothing. I will certainly try these ideas.

  3. WHERE IS THE BEST PLACE FOR A CUT AND STYLE IN THE VALLEY? I ALWAYS HEAR DIFFERENT PLACES WHERE DO I GO IF I LIVE HERE? i DO NOT MIND DRIVING 25 MILES I WANT THE BEST?
