Emma Stone’s haircolor?

One of our bloggers wanted a haircolor similar to Emma Stone’s. Here’s the new hue…not a perfect match, but we love it!

Emma Stone

A few days ago, we wrote a tweet and facebook status about one of our writers who was getting her hair colored. She wanted something like Emma Stone’s red (in the Revlon ad below) but lighter red, blonder or more strawberry blond. The results are shown above right.

To get the look: hair was highlighted in blond and then rinsed with a color glaze, creating a red base and overall dark strawberry blond.

Our writer has gotten lots of compliments on the new hue, and she likes it…for now. She was hoping for a lighter red than she got, but will enjoy it for a couple of months…until she goes in for single-process color.

We are firm believers in experimenting with our hair. As one celebrity hairstylist told us long ago: “Have fun with your hair…it’ll grow out if you don’t like it!” Our sentiments exactly. Of course we know better than asking for Celebrity Hairstyles that are out of our reach…like this one of Emma Stone in rich dark red accented with gold streaks and luscious curls!

Emma StoneWhat do you think about the results? Does it remind you of any haircolor Emma Stone has worn in the past? (We’d love to get your opinion in the comments space below!)

Agyness Deyn’s buzz cut is growing on us!

In early June we were caught off guard when Agyness Deyn got a crew cut. We wondered why the supermodel would give up the pretty “bowl” bob that she made famous? Watching Agyness for a couple of months, we’re starting to see the beauty of the buzz… namely that her stunning  face can stand on its own. Few women can get away with this, so why not do it if you can? Agyness is making little changes that spice up the crop, going from dirty blond to red hot to cool white.

Seeing the It Girl so comfortable in her hair makes it look better and starts to seem like a natural for the model/trendsetter. Right after the short-to-shorter haircut Agyness didn’t seem too pleased. Now she seems happy and at ease in the new ‘do. Agyness’ crew cut fits the avant-garde image she often creates in fashion mags. The Madonna-like model seems right at home in the New York Issue of V Magazine as a Hare Krishna and a Britney Spears gone goth girl binging on Cheetos.

Another reason for Agyness to smile is naag.com, an online magazine that she launched with her journalist friend Fiona Byrne (above). In an interesting role reversal, the woman before the camera becomes the Creative Director behind the scenes–photographing gal pals and sharing secrets about her beauty products, movies, restaurants and a lot more! It’s hard for us (in the Second City) to relate to all the NYC stuff; however, most any girl/woman can appreciate what these trendies have to say.

Just take a quick peek at the lifestyle mag and you’ll find info on things like Mororoccanoil hair treatment for all types. It’s a short post, but here’s how it starts: “If you’re anything like us, the mere mention of the word ‘oil’ in the same sentence as ‘hair’ has an entirely negative connotation, one that takes you back to zits, braces and hormones and memories of those girls in class who thought it was OK to wash their hair once a week during the oiliest of those teenage hair years. Ew.”

“Even the finest of hair won’t be weighed down with residue,” according to Ms. Byrne, “and as one who sports the finest and silkiest of hair with an inherent fear of lank, greasy tresses, we can vouch for the fact that this oil is light as a feather. It’s a moroccaniracle!” (Moroccanoil is available starting at from $14.99 at Rickysnyc.com).

Getting back to the whole reason for this post… Agyness’ short-short is becoming bold AND beautiful to us (even though we would never dare to bare our head like that!)

Dissenting view of Ginnifer Goodwin

When Ginnifer first took a short cut, another blogger called the ‘do a disaster and looked elfish (see last post).  She liked Ginnifer’s hair loads better in He’s Just Not That Into You (as shown here). The blogger in question is way younger (20 something) than us (30+) and obviously her opines are loads diff from ours. We’re sure lots of guys would agree, but that’s the gr8 thing about the U.S. of A. where everyone’s free to have free speech (the last time we checked, the 1st amendment still holds). Some fans beg Gin to grow her hair back ASAP. We acclaim, “You go, girl!” Fans of long hair diss the cropped coif. Practical women applaud the Big Lover for being cutting edge. Whatever… everyone has to agree it’s the easiest look around! we’d love to hear what you think. Is there a middle ground? We like to think so.
