Reader’s Poll: What kind of hairstyles do you look for online?

When you “search” hairstyle ideas, what key words do you use? Celebrities, non-celebs, TV stars, singers, models, hairstyles, etc. 

Originally, when we started realhairstyles.net, our goal was to present celebrity hairstyles that work in real life, but sometimes we get carried away showing celebrity hair fashions and what we think about them.

Now we think it’s high time to ask you how you think we’re doing. Would you rather have more details about how to do the styles? Or would you like us to continue going in the same direction as we have in the past?

Soap Star Hairstyles: Days of our Lives, Bold & Beautiful, Young & Restless

Candidates for Best Younger Actress in a Drama Series present a variety of hairstyles…curly, wavy, straight, ombre color, golden blond and a girl-to-woman makeover!

The nominees are Shelley Hennig (ex-Stephanie, Days of Our Lives), Molly Burnett (Melanie, Days), Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy, The Bold and The Beautiful) and Christel Khalil (Lily of The Young and The Restless).

Shelley is well known for her daytime role, but she has carried her popularity into nighttime’s The Secret Circle. For the soaps (below), she looked younger in ringlets that seemed perfectly natural and low maintenance. For nighttime intrigue (above) the brunette takes on a more sophisticated, more stylized waves and curls.

As Melanie on Days, Molly Burnett (below left) changes her hair often. She wore ombre haircolor when it was hot (esp. because of Drew Barrymore). Miss Melanie also used to wear her hair in over-the-top, high-society dos that were too old for her. Lately she seems right at home in girlish looks like this long golden blond mane curled around the face.

If your hair is straight or smoothed out with blow-dry styling, just use a curling iron vertically to get the flattering ringlets.


Speaking of ombre color, Steffy is still wearing it. Jacqueline (right) keeps it fresh by volumizing hair on top and blending it to lower volume, but loose curls through the length. Light layers starting at the chin give the mane that extra boost.

At The Young and the Restless, Emmy nominee Christel Khalil has always brought an exotic flair to her Lily. Most recently we haven’t seen Christel much on screen and wish that she would have a bigger story. Back in the day, Lily was on the front burner playing a rising model being thwarted by Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson, Emmy nominee for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series). From the start we noticed Christel’s luscious ringlets that seem more natural. If your hair is like hers, just brush out the crown and scrunch dry the rest.

The Daytime Emmy Awards will be presented June 23 in Los Angeles. A complete list of nominees can be found at EmmyOnline.TV.

Celebrity Blondes: Avengers’ Scarlett Johansson, Mad Men’s January Jones, Glee-ful Dianna Agron & more

Featuring straight, curly, wavy, up, down, short to long

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala is considered THE style event of the year…yes, bigger than the Academy Awards show, Golden Globes, Emmys. It’s been nicknamed the Oscars of the East Coast or the Fashion Oscars. With the spotlight on glamour, the Met presents more than enough hairstyle ideas for Real Women. Of course, many of the ‘dos are unrealistic…unless you have the time and money to spare and/or you have a celeb hairstylist at your beck and call.

Since so many great hairstyles showed up at this year’s Ball, we decided to feature a few at a time. Here, the spotlight is on some of the beautiful blondes at the High Society event.

Scarlett Johannson’s Wavy Bob
When we saw Scarlett on the Red Carpet, it hit us that loose waves without layers have become a timeless style like a straight bob, pixie or upsweep. While the wavy style looks easy to do, it’s really not…unless your hair is naturally this way. Tighter curls would have to be smoothed out and straighter hair would need lots o’ help from a waving iron or a very loose perm.

Amber Valetta’s Sleek Waves
Glamorous hairstyles are no big deal for models like Ms. Valetta. But for women like us, nothing could be more special (or harder to achieve)! Anyone who’s not rich and famous would have to spend an hour or more at home or up to half a day in a salon to recreate the hair fashion. Most types of hair would have to be blown dry using small sections at a time. Then working again with small sections, curl hair vertically with a medium-to-large barrel styling iron. Let hair dry thoroughly before brushing gently and finishing with your fave holding product.

Chloe Sevigny’s Chic Short Cut
Meanwhile Ms. Sevigny could almost comb her hair and go to get ready for Big Love Nights. But you know THAT wouldn’t cut it for divas who are going to be in the limelight. (It’s funny to see a star like Chloe making what looks like a mistake with her hair…it’s messed up on the left side or is it just sticking out too much?!) The layered, short cut looks more polished when it’s blown-dry after applying a texturizing product to damp hair. Curl a few tendrils around the face and fingerbrush.

After looking closely at her to write this post, we realized that Chloe is either nude or wearing nude-colored undergarments. While it might be obvious to you, we think it’s a kind of subtle way to draw attention to yourself. The bloggers at gofugyourself.com would call the bare beauty anything but subtle! Writing about Chloe in their Fug or Fab category, they say, “Yes, she’s bedecked chiefly in hot pants and mirrors. If only she’d opted to look in one of them.” (If you’re into snarky comments about Celebrity Style, visit the Fug Girls.)

Dianna Agron’s Curly Upsweep
Natural curls don’t require much prompting to get tressed up like this. Simply scrunch while drying with a diffused blow-drier or squeeze and lift curls continuously while they are drying naturally. Brush out the crown before sweeping hair back. Loosen lots of curls on one side and a few on the other. Secure with bobby pins underneath in back and spray.

January Jones’ Sleek Bob
We love to follow Miss January to marvel at the ways she combines pretty hairstyles with hot trends. And it’s fun to see her sometimes questionable fashion choices (like a glaring yellow gown with details on the bodice that emphasis the corset detailing and resemble a cartoon vampire.) As for her hair, is there a little pink left from when she added the streak months ago? Actually the Mad (wo)Men’s hairstyle needs little embellishment. The straight blunt cut is classic and looks its best with meticulous blow-dry styling.

Is there anyone out there who likes Aubrey O’Day?

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.

And what about her hair?

Celebrity Apprentice: We hope Aubrey O’Day has been fired, but we doubt it!


Celeb Apprentice 2012: the Aubrey O’Day show

Vanity thy name is Aubrey

Aubrey’s hair is the least of her faults

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.

Of-the-moment glamour waves reflect Scarlett’s bold sense of style as she receives her Star on the famous sideWalk in California. Few celebs have what it takes to wear all of their hair smoothed back except for a wavy crown with a slight pompadour. Getty Image.

Can you believe these celebs are in a Best-Dressed poll?!

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.
