The women of Mad Men: Elisabeth Moss, January Jones, Christina Hendricks

The fashion critics seem to diss the women of Mad Men every chance they get. The negative reviews usually focus on their wardrobes, but January Jones often garners bad marks for her hairstyles. January’s hair is either too messy, too trendy, too sedate, too whatever. We’re wondering what those holier-than-thou fashionistas are thinking after seeing the Mad Man & Women on the cover of Rolling Stone’s September issue. A recent flurry of comments resulted from the Emmys, where the top actresses struck a confident pose. January Jones was criticized for her messy hair and her short, electric blue dress with a pointy corset-style bodice. Elisabeth Moss was snickered at for her old-fashioned glamour look. And as usual the Joan Rivers types slammed Christina Hendricks for showing off her curvy figure at a time when stick-thin women are still in vogue. A few of the experts ARE predicting that the hourglass silhouette will be everywhere next season. Perhaps hairstyles will follow suit and become as voluptuous as the women of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Advertising Agency.

Here they show how high volume works on straight to curly locks. The ever fearless leader of the pack, January is steps ahead of the trend with her asymmetrical bob and kicky ends. If you have a good haircut, styling is as easy as applying a volumizing product, blow-drying hair upside down, gently combing and fingering into place and then spritzing on a strong-hold spray. Next we see that while Peggy’s away, Elisabeth will play! On Mad Men the secretary-rising star of the agency, Peggy is slowly becoming a little less dowdy and a little more feminine. But even when she turns on the glamour, Peggy stays restrained. It’s fun to see the real woman behind the character–Ms. Moss pretty, glamorous, poised yet totally relaxed. Her do isn’t as difficult as you might think. After blow-drying hair with a round brush, set it on hot rollers and let hair cool before brushing it.  Back-comb, gel and spray to your heart’s desire. Like Elisabeth, Christina gets to step out of the strict secretary/office manager position. When Christina is able to let Joan’s hair down, out of the tight updo, she looks real. To copy, curl hair vertically with rollers or a big-sized curling iron.

We’ve come to the end of our episode. To be continued…
