In our last post we were a little mean (OK call us catty) when we wondered why the Hilton Sisters have such bad hair. We based our long-winded rant on a few unflattering photos of Paris and Nicky from the MTV Movie Awards. When doing other research, we discovered we may have jumped the gun, letting our dislike for the Hilton sisters influence our opinion of their hair. Tooling around the www, we found some good-to-great photos that make their manes look much better. We still don’t agree with the writers who say the Hilton sisters are sexy as always (but that’s a topic for another time, and anyway we don’t have room to talk when it comes to overall beauty!). For now, suffice it to say, we were not totally accurate in our assessment yesterday.
For all the money they have, you’d think the Hilton sisters would have the best manes in the world!
Maybe their high opinion of themselves says, “We DO have the best looks money can buy.” Perhaps they feel that designer fashions and jewelry are enough.
Watching them at the MTV Movie Awards, we couldn’t help notice how bad their hair is. We wonder if they even attempt to get a natural-looking hair color? Paris’ bleached-out blond looks like a white T-shirt that has “yellowed” after too many washings. Nicki’s shade is less bitter, but not much better. Both hair colors lack dimension and personality. Like most women, they let a bit of their dark roots show, but Paris goes too far showing her roots around the face.
They also seem oblivious to the sickly condition of their strands. Paris’ mane is thicker than Nicki’s yet it thins into spiky split ends. Meanwhile, Nicki could have had a cute cut IF she had maintained the angled fringe. Nicki’s lack of hair is even more noticeable where pieces get lumped together. The more we look at them, the more their hair reminds us of worn-out brooms.
While their hair is horrible, their stilted poses were the first thing that got our attention on Sunday. What we really want to know: are the Hilton sisters robots, aliens, zombies or escapees from a wax museum?
Take another look at the Hiltons. There’s not much difference between the top two photos; it seems like the sissies didn’t move in between shots and every hair stayed in place. Their arms are “glued” around their waists as celeb sisters are wont to do (think the Olsen twins). We don’t see any difference in Paris between the first and 2nd look, but the full-figure view shows Paris stuck sticking out her derriere (or is it just the angle?). In contrast to Paris’ frozen smile, Nicki has vacant eyes and non-expressive lips. Oh yeah, Nicki rotates her head ever-so-slightly. In yet another pose, the two prove they are alive: Nicki kicks up her feet, while Paris lifts her right arm and breaks her smile…but they still have bad hair!
Do you agree with MAXIM’s picks for their HOT 100?
More important: what do you think about their hair?
Although our HOT 100 would be different from MAXIM’s, their infamous list always draws us in. This year it’s even more interesting because the rankings are based on Readers’ Opinions for the first time in one hundred years of Hot 100 history. This year we were pleasantly surprised by another first: Stephen Colbert placed Number 69 on the rankings (thanks to a massive write-in vote campaign)
Now let’s get to the meat of the matter. Help us choose the HOTTEST HAIRSTYLES from the MAXIM 100. For the complete list, click here.
We love bold, bright hair colors like Katy’s and Pink’s. But the idea for this post comes from a controversy that’s taken on a life of its own after Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards show.
The alleged feud involved Pink, her husband Carey Hart, Chris Brown and Katy. It all started during the show and made headlines in the days after. Pink felt like she had to apologize to Katy for a tweet her husband sent that could have been taken the wrong way. From Sunday to Monday, Pink and Chris clarified that they were criticizing Chris Brown, not Katy, for lip-syncing. The gist of Carey’s first message was that Pink did a better job than Ms. Perry on a similar swinging-in-the-air act at the 2010 Grammy Awards, and Pink “was 3 months pregnant!”
Getting back to the mane reason for this post… Judging from our stats, it seems you aren’t really into wild hair coloring a la Pink and Katy Perry (judging from our stats). But WE like some of them, and will continue to cover them…
Katy’s true blue & purple streaks?
Ms. Perry has favored this type of color scheme recently, and often the results are subtle like this. We haven’t heard about any fashion “expert” who compliments the shades. Maybe we haven’t looked in the right places? Doesn’t matter, this combination is pretty even when it’s more noticeable hints of pastels.
Pink’s solid platinum vs. Pink’s pink streaks on white Pink wore white-hot platinum in a cropped haircut with grand pomp and circumstance. Few real women could pull it off, but Pink can because she’s beautiful and confident enough to bare her face–that’s exactly what this ‘do does with its long lifted crown and buzzed sides.
The photo of Pink-on-white isn’t from Sunday’s Billboard gala, yet it’s more representative of her one-of-a-kind multicolors! We’re not sure if we’d ever dare to wear something so “out there”…unless it’s temporary, for a day or two. We’re more likely to try something subtle like January Jones’ pink streaks from Spring. In the end, we never say “never” when it comes to hair!

What happens when stars are the same age but don’t look (or act) it? Do some women just age faster? Or do lifestyle and their idea of “beauty” take a toll? Heidi Montag & Lea Michele are both 25, Adele & Snooki both 24! If you want a good laugh, go to HUFF POST .
We admit we’ve been harsh on Aubrey O’Day since opening day of Celebrity Apprentice 2012. Now we want to give you a chance to express your opinion. We especially want to hear from fans of Audrey or those who think we’re totally off base. To help us analyze the results (and if you feel like it), indicate your gender in the comments section below.
Aubrey said her hair is ‘all real’ last week. Can you believe it?!
May 13, 2012–Right here, right now begins our near-to-final thoughts about this year’s C.A. But in the interest of full disclosure, we should say it’s really a continuing critique of Aubrey O’Day. Since the clock’s ticking, this is a QuickPress, and the first posts to follow will not highlight her hair. Instead they will sum up why we love to hate Ms. O’Day, why she should NOT BE CELEBRITY APPRENTICE and why she never should have made it this far in the competition of celebrity wanna-bes. Really C.A. should be called a NON-reality show because we doubt any successful CEO would consider most of these D- and F-listers as real job candidates!
Researching this series has been super-easy, not to mention confidence-building because the data validates the truth behind our biased opinion! So far there’s overwhelming evidence that Aubrey O’Day just might be the most dis-liked Celebrity Apprentice wanna-be ever!
Exhibit A (above): a doctored photo of Aubrey from tv.com depicting real Aubrey. The image is titled “clownhore” (we can’t imagine why!) and it goes with the post Celebrity Apprentice: It’s Time to Call Some People Out. Lily Sparks sums it up perfectly when she writes, “I’m LOOKING AT YOU, AUBREY.”
Exhibits B & C (above right and below) speak to Aubrey’s love of herself, her exhibitionist tendencies and her bad taste in everything from hair to fashion to morals to ad infinitum.
Countless celebrities flaunted their stuff at this week’s Met Gala. The guest list included Kristen Stewart (clockwise from top left), Leighton Meister, Carey Mulligan and Lily Collins. At another web address, you can find a Readers’ Poll that includes these stars as choices for Best-Dressed…what were the survey writers thinking (or drinking)??!! To see the whole list, go to that Poll.
