Did you know the answer(s) to the question we posed on Jan. 10: what do Aubrey O’Day and Maria Kanellis have in common? You don’t have to be a genius to know one of the multiple choice answers… It’s clear they are both red-hot redheads. A second answer is not so clear if you are new to our blog. Fans of Celebrity Apprentice might know the answer or discover it soon when The Trump starts his new season of myriad egomaniac enterprises that would better named The World’s Worst Boss. New viewers will see that Aubrey is an Apprentice-wanna be this year. Those who’ve followed C.A. remember Maria from her extended job interview two years ago.
Another answer comes from a male reader: “They’re both hot!” he raved a day after the blog was posted. We’re guessing their hairstyles’ popularity will be another commonality. Aubrey O’Day’s wavy hair will be just as popular as Maria Kanelli’s hair is (judging from our stats). Even their careers are similar: a reality star and a WWE diva who both would rather be known as singers rather than for their sex appeal or past “success?”.
But let’s get back to the mane thing:
O’Day’s hair and Kanellis’ hair. Above Aubrey’s red is brighter than Maria’s… we think it’s a little MUCH, not natural-looking and bordering on clown-ish. However, the lighting exaggerates and contributes to the cartoon-like carrot top. In real life (right), the color is much better… but still out there. What’s more interesting about Aubrey’s red hair is that in the past she’s alternated from light to dark to dishwater blond. Her new red is surprising and seems to be inspired by Rihanna, who often shows up in cherry red or auburn ringlets.
What about their hairstyles?
Obviously one long-hair is wavy, the other’s straight. Not so obvious is the fact that Maria has to spend a lot of time smoothing out her curls when she wants them tamed down (top). Just as Aubrey is more recognizable in straight hair, she has gone wavy here. In the candid shots here, the colors and styles are more alike: loose waves.
You might call us snobs because we get our hair colored by salon professionals. We have seen great do-it-at-home color on women who know what they’re doing. But more often than not we see bad dye jobs.
In this case, we have to admit that it wouldn’t be challenging to do Aubrey’s red at home. That and Maria’s 2nd red are well suited for DIYers because they are single process and easy to match with color in a box. Maria’s first hue would be harder to recreate because it has subtle highlights mixed in with the red base.
