Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, Hayden Panettiere and Lea Michele are some of the stars who made the best-dressed lists, and we’re guessing at least one of them will get your vote for favorite hairstyle!
While everyone else talks about the best- and worst-dressed at awards show, we look for the best-tressed. The Teen Choice Awards 2012 is no exception! Before we go into detail about their ‘dos, we’d like to know whose hair you want to know more about. Go through the next few posts and then come back here to place your votes. If you don’t see your Teen Choice hairstyles, just list them under “Other” in the poll below!
Here’s a few stars to get you started. For the next post, click here!
Carly Rae Jepson spices up long hair with bangs and an angled fringe. Ashley Benson makes the classic upsweep chic with high volume and loose tendrils.
Demi Lovato looks like she borrowed Madonna’s I Dream of Jeannie ‘do. Chelsea Kane is one of the few stars who wore short hair at the Teen Choice Awards. Why don’t more celebs follow her lead?
There’s more to celebrity style
than meets the eye!
Demi doesn’t succumb to the pressure to be perfect as defined by Hollywood’s standards. The X-factor judge takes trends and makes them her own. Here, she puts a new twist on purple hair color and wears a super-high ponytail wrapped up in strands that match the bright hue.
Unlike many stars her age, Selena hasn’t turned into a wild woman as she transitions from teen to young miss. She strikes the perfect balance by wearing s sophisticated hairstyle and a gown that shows just the right amount of skin! While her image isn’t R-rated, she plans to do more “adult” songs in the near future.
When you hear the name Taylor Swift, you think of long blond spiral curls. Although that look’s a fan favorite, Tay has changed it up quite a bit through the years. Most of the pix above feature the dark haircolor she’s wearing in her new CoverGirl campaign. So far, we can’t tell what her admirers think about the brown, but we like it and commend her for making such a big change.
Early in the day J Lo had short hair. During the show, it was long again. Did she get her hair cut or was she taking a mini break from extensions? Only her hairdresser knows for sure!
On June 20th, Jen was in Santiago, Chile as part of her World Tour 2012. When she and beau Casper Smart were taking in the sights, J Lo was nearly unrecognizable in short hair and shades. It seemed like her long locks had been cut up to the shoulders…but later that night she was right back to her long trademark tresses for her Dance Again show.
The quick change had everyone wondering whether Ms. Lopez had her hair cut, was wearing a wig or took out extensions and had them re-applied. As of yet, no one has the answer, and it will probably remain a mystery because Ms. Lopez wants it that way!
We were glad to see former American Idol judge changing up her look, and it would have been nice if she stuck with it a longer than a day or two. We liked the cut, but not the style–unbalanced with curls puffing out too far on one side. The mane drawback is that it’s outdated. As dailymail.com puts it, “the new ‘do [has] the air of a natty ’80s power coiffure.”
According to Us Weekly, the wanna-be fiancée has worried about her looks from the start. She became even more distressed as the season progressed.
Unbelievable! When has Emily ever looked anything but gorgeous on air? Is she seeing things when she looks in a mirror? While her insecurities don’t make sense to us, we CAN believe the rumors of breast implants, veneers, a nose job, diva-like behavior, conniving for her own show and her desire to be famous.
“She literally cried” when she was unhappy with her on-air ‘dos, makeup and fashions, an insider told Us. The tears extended to anything else she didn’t like about the show.
Here’s some reasons for our skepticism:
• The Bachelorette has a team of talented hairstylists, makeup artists and fashion experts at her beck and call.
• Emily’s good with her hair and has great taste.
• The media have repeatedly written and talked about how pretty she is. Some writers call her a “sweetie.”
We don’t really know what to think about her hyper-critisms. Is it all a plot to draw attention to herself? Does she compare herself with beauties like Charlize Theron, Emma Stone, etc., etc.?
No matter what her delusions are we have to say: “Get a grip!” Of course, it doesn’t matter what we think. This installment of the Emily show is almost over, and she’s ready for her spin-off.
Stay tuned for details about the Bachelorette’s hairstyles.
Taylor’s made one of her boldest style moves ever—going from blond to bronde (brown with blond highlights) for her latest CoverGirl campaign!
Glam Taylor is in her element when wearing trademark glamour curls
“See yourself, be yourself” gave Taylor a chance to show how hair and makeup can totally change your look (and fit your mood!).The video below presents Tay’s four styles. In addition to going into great detail on the styles, she talks about having a variety of styles. “I think in life we have a bunch of different versions of ourselves,” she says, adding that the look depends on your personality and the event—from talking with friends, hanging out at home or being in a job interview.
“I think it’s all equally different the way we choose to dress, the way we choose our makeup,” she continues. “The cool thing about makeup is that it can be so different on any given day.” The same is true about hair and fashion, as you can see here and in the video.
Boho Country Straight but full with curled ends, face-framing fringe and funky cowgirl hat.
Rocker-Rebel Straight to high volume and high-flying bangs.
The Natural Look In different lighting, the blond highlights are more noticeable. This smooth style has more curl than the Boho, but it’s not as tight as Glam!
When we first saw Sherri Shepherd wearing a new ‘do on The View, we didn’t recognize her…and neither did host Barbara Walters! Sherri must have been expecting the same reaction from other Viewers, because she carried a big name tag onto the set. We love the look and thought she had really cut and colored her hair…but then we found out it’s a wig.
Click above to see Sherri on The View!
The always bubbly Sherri is more giddy than normal because she’s working with Lux Hair on her own line of wigs. She’s so excited about the venture that her Twitter and Facebook accounts are full of the news! In one tweet, Sherri wrote, “Hubby @SalfromtheD says I have to get off computer & go to bed (I kinda’ agree) but I’m in a wig high! #LuxHair#fb
Sherri admits she has heard criticisms about the light, cropped wig; some fans think it’s fake-looking and not flattering. Of course, Sherri doesn’t care and we love that attitude!
In a post at tvshowsonlinetv.com, we found a positive reaction: she “looks cute” in short hair. “It’s good to mix it up once and a while.” We couldn’t agree more!
Mixing it up will be an on-going thing for this former Dancer with the Stars. For example, when she’s feeling wild, crazy and sexy, She can slip on high-flying layered curls that look all-natural yet they’re 100% easier than the real thing. Could you ask for anything more?
For half the month of June, Charlize covered up her hairless head whenever she went out in public i.e. whenever the paparazzi might have a shot of catching up with her!
You’d have to be living on another planet not to know that Charlize Theron shaved her head. Or, then again, you might not care about celeb style news, but in that case you wouldn’t be reading this. Anyone who IS interested has noticed that Char has been wearing hats (fedora or beanie) ever since she had her hair shaved off on June 6.
We first saw the new ‘do on June 24 when she was photographed without a hat and with her adorable son Jackson. They were snapped in Namibia, Africa where she was gearing up for filming of Mad Max: Thunder Road (the reason she sheared her lockx in the first place!). Even though the candid pic is fuzzy as all get-out, you can tell she’s still gorgeous, proving what we knew all along–she’s one of the few elite who don’t need hair to be beautiful!!! We don’t have to tell you who the others are, but we will: Natalie Portman, Agyness Deyn, Janet Jackson, Demi Moore and Anne Hathaway. Other hairless celebs (who look only OK in buzz cuts) are Natalie Maines and Cynthia Nixon.
After she shaved her medium-length mane, we wondered what took her so long. The barely-there hair would have been perfect for futuristic Prometheus. Or she could have worn her hair slicked back for Mad Max as she did to play an Ice Queen in the first sci-fi. (Perhaps the frigid look was too pretty for the down-and-dirty Max movie.) Or she could have shaved her hair earlier for Prom. A less-daring, less-dedicated actress could have worn a bald wig that could be made totally realistic with today’s fabulous fakes and creative hairstylists.
Here’s what we think: the Oscar winner wouldn’t want to look the same as she did in her last movie. We know from her complete transformation in Monster that she is willing to go to all the way to becoming a new woman for a role.
What’s next for Charlize? When will she start growing out her hair? Will it be after Mad Max is a wrap or will she stick with it for a while just for the shock value? Please tell us what you think!

From everything we’ve read about The Bachelorette, it seems like you LOVE Emily Maynard’s hair. We agree that her blond mane’s pretty, but we think it’s time-consuming and not practical for real women…unless you’re great with your hair or have help from a celebrity stylist. With the loves of her life now narrowed down to Jef and Arie, there’s little time to left to talk about this season’s Bachelorette. We don’t want to go into a lot of detail about her hairdo how-tos until we know that you’re interested. Hence the reader’s poll below.
After An Education, Carey cut off her long mane that worked so well for that movie set in the ’60s. In a darling short cut, the Oscar-nominated star was almost unrecognizable at the Academy Awards 2012. Since that time, Carey as changed her hair often but never gone back to long hair. Her commitment to short hair puts her in the ranks of daring stars like Michelle Williams, Emma Watson and recently Charlize Theron, who shaved her head for a role in the movie Mad Max: Fury Road. No matter whether it’s for fun or work, going super-short takes a lot of guts.
How does Carey keep her cropped cut fresh?
By giving it new twists…like the modern-day pompadour she donned for the 2012 Met Ball on May 7. Her updo reflects the giddy look of her newlywed status. (She married Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons on April 21 and the Met Ball was her first appearance as a new bride!). Keeping hair longer on top offers the versatility to lift the crown away from a side part using a blow-dryer and round brush. Short hair that’s not buzzed on the sides would need to be combed back and held in place with gel. Strong-hold styling products before and after help make and hold the wave.
Bold and beautiful hair color
Light blond on top softens the crop and the dark base adds interesting dimension. As is the case with Carey’s short cut, not everyone can wear bold, contrasting shades. Don’t even think about wearing it if you don’t have a talented hair colorist!
Hairstory repeats itself
Carey’s short hair looks tailor-made for her role with Leonardo DiCaprio in The Great Gatsby coming out in December. Here are a couple of examples of how her Flapper ‘do fits the setting—the Roaring Twenties.

Some of the media were SHOCKED by the news that Miss Cyrus is engaged to Liam Hemsworth. We’re not surprised by the wedding plans–it happens all the time for 19-year-olds in Hollywood and in real life. At least she’s not one of the Teen Moms(yet! Miley’s mom has already lashed out against one mag’s rumor that her daughter has a baby on board.)
As usual, we’re more interested in her hair than the gossip or bad fortunes being told. Almost two years ago–when Miley was making headlines for going from child star to pole dancer–we wrote about how her “style” was going straight from PG to R. That post is still getting lots of views even though Ms. Cyrus seems to settling down with one Mr. Hemsworth. It’s fun to look at the couple at three events pre-engagement. While the handsome Hunger Gamesstar seems to be in the same suit and the same pose, Miley’s look changes in every photo. Her hairstyles range from wild to mild to classic, and the fashions vary, too. At least two things about her hair stay the same–the ombré hair color and medium length.
All in all, Miley’s hairstyles have come a long way since she set sail from Disney. It took a while, but she finally let go of the long hair that worked for Hannah and then was transformed into the sexed-up look of a girl trying to grow up overnight. (For the background story, go to the same link mentioned above.)
But Miley’s hair isn’t perfect by any means. We weren’t impressed by the pouffed ‘do below. Actually it didn’t look too bad in the photo on the left, but the full-figure pose demonstrates our opinion that it’s a tired, old-lady style. Of course, no one noticed her hair at the Billboard Music Awardsbecause everyone’s eyes were transfixed on her oversized blazer that barely cover her emaciated body.
Anyone who knows realhairstyles.netknows this isn’t all we have to say about Miley. We already have a post in the works showing her style transformation from girl to young woman.
Let us know if you want to read more about the bride-to-be!
