Lisa Marie Presley’s hairstyles: fresh looks suit her new ‘Storm & Grace’ album

A pretty makeover is perfectly timed with the release of her new album, LISA MARIE PRESLEY STORM & GRACE…

As one writer puts it: Lisa Marie must have discovered Jennifer Lopez’s secrets for staying young. We think it has more to do with her mother Priscilla who’s never looked her age. As for her voice, that comes from her father and she does have some of

The glam side of Lisa Marie
Though the top and bottom photos were obviously taken at different times, they depict a totally new image for LMP. Most of our memories of Ms. Presley in years past are of a punkish, tough-guy girl who did rebellious acts such as marrying Michael Jackson, wearing military clothes and doing forgettable albums.

The retro Hollywood waves and girly fashions resemble a young Priscilla in Graceland even though Lisa Marie is 44 years of age! One hint that it’s current is the trendy ombre-like effect of light blond that’s growing out from the dark roots.

A stormy & graceful mood
As her hair continues to get longer, the ombre coloring carries on, but it’s more platinum than golden blond. While her hair is unrealistically styled into the sexy wind-blown look, you can easily see how ends have been snipped into long layers to add volume and blended so that they can be styled to look one length.

We don’t want to get too ahead of ourselves and spill all the details about her hairstyle and color until we know you’re interested.

Lisa Marie Presley must have inherited good genes from Priscilla & Elvis

A pretty fresh makeover is perfectly timed with the release of her new album, LISA MARIE PRESLEY STORM & GRACE…

As one writer puts it: Lisa Marie must have discovered Jennifer Lopez’s secrets for staying young. We think it has more to do with her mother Priscilla. As for her voice, those genes seem to come from her father (but we won’t dwell on that because she’s trying to break away from the “daughter of Elvis” label).

In a future post, we hope to gather some photos of Lisa now and her mom in her 40s and show them side by side so you can see the similarities. Until then, you’ll have to take our word that the top image is pure Priscilla!

Though obviously taken at different times, the studio photos depict a totally new image for LMP. We remember her as the punkish, tough-guy girl who fought expectations by rebellious acts such as marrying Michael Jackson, wearing military clothes and doing forgettable albums.

More buzz about Janet Jackson’s hairstyle

Janet Jackson continues to wow us with her super-super-short hair… the quickest and easiest way to wear the buzz cut is au naturel topped with a newsboy cap. She chose the cute look  for an interview with Richelle Carey of CNN Headline News and to pose with Gladys Knight at the Essence Music Festival. When she performed at the 4th of July fest, Janet HAD to be even more bold to go with her gold bodysuit. She made the mane change by adding a few hair pieces on top and creating a lifted crown (suitable for the Dancing Queen). Her short cut took a serious turn at the one-year anniversary of her brother Michael’s death. The classic coif perfectly fit the solemn occasion, and it works for real women any time. By adding length all over, Ms. Jackson resembles her character in Tyler Perry’s new movie, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf. What comes next for JJ? It’s anyone’s guess!

Janet Jackson’s hairstyle: her buzz cut grows out magically!

You may be wondering why we’re so fascinated with buzzed haircuts. We really don’t know the answer, but it could be because the celebs who wear them are some of the gutsiest women we know. Of course they have the freedom to cut off their manes because they look great in any hairstyle. 

We’re wondering if this is the making of a mini trend with Janet joining other bare heads like Solange Knowles, Agyness Deyn and the beautiful creature of Splice. Today we were going to feature them all together but there’s too much good stuff to pack into one post. So… here’s an update on the one and only Janet from the infamous Jackson family. The Nasty singer was first spotted in a crew cut on May 20th, so naturally the next day her new do dominated the headlines of style and gossip news. There were only a few candid photos (not very flattering, above right) showing Ms. Jackson in her barely-there hair that had a super-high shine.  A few days later (above center) it looked like Janet had grown out her hair overnight when she appeared at a London preview screening of Why Did I Get Married Too? With a long full crown topping the buzz, there’s no question that the look was artificially enhanced. The star’s sheer magic just goes to show you that even a buzz cut can look longer than it really is. It helps to have access to a celebrity hair designer, but real women could do the trick with good hairpieces and a talented hairstylist to show them how.

Another day after her hair was buzzed (June 3rd in Harlem, left), the star was spotted in a fabulous fake on the set of For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf. For her third movie with Tyler Perry, the super-short style is slightly longer on top and has long bangs. This style and the wavy upsweep without bangs just goes to show you that it’s possible to get variety with short hair. The new movie coif has to stay consistent but that works out great for Janet who is showing up with similar shortcuts on TV appearances. While she’s getting a break from extensions, we wouldn’t be surprised to see her go long or in-between sometime soon.

Getting back to the buzz, Janet really showed it off at the finale of American Idol. Many reviewers say she stole the show with her shorn hairstyle, trim figure and Michael-style dance moves… not to mention her much-loved voice. Again, Janet enhanced the simple short with a glossy finish.

Finally, we wanted to compare a couple of Janet’s old hairstyles with the new. While she looks cute in long ringlets and bangs, the excess hair overwhelms her delicate face.  Another time she was wearing dread locks for a visit with her brother Michael. This time the hair was off the face, which is good, but the length, texture and wide headband were too much for Ms. Jackson. We could show you plenty of pretty pix of Janet in long hair, but we like to see the soft-spoken star make a strong statement with her hair. Many of you must agree: a poll on Janet-online.com shows 88.88% of fans are in favor of the crop. Don’t worry if the buzz cut annoys you… it won’t be around for long!
