Tony Awards Hair & Fashion: ‘ 2 Broke Girls’ Beth Behrs & ‘NCIS’ Cote de Pablo

Overall the Tony Awards are not known for their glamour, but that doesn’t stop individual stars from going all out on American Theatre’s Big Night. As always, the best-looking actresses of the night coordinate their hairstyles to match their evening gowns. When done correctly, the results are stunning as shown by Beth Behrs and Cote de Pablo.

One of the 2 Broke Girls, Beth lets her bare back do all the talking by wearing a simple ponytail. While the sleek front appears conservative, the back breaks out into a big wave.

NCIS’ Cote changes her look simply by switching her expression from sexy to friendly. The brunette also chooses a pony, but she takes it to the side. The loose curls spilling over the shoulder are pretty yet don’t take away from the low neckline and high waist.

Even better than all this is how easy the looks are to do: just curl or use a waving iron on hair before ponying it up in back or to one side!

oops…maybe Paris & Nicky Hilton have better hair than we thought!

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.

To see why we changed our mind, click here!

Paris & Nicky Hilton: can’t you afford to have better hair?

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!

Jennifer Aniston Hair: pretty smart like her fave drink–smartwater

Our BFF keeps her hair as simple as her fave drink—smartwater!


smartwater says, “Simplicity is delicious.”
We say, “Simplicity is sexy.”


This is the second year Jennifer Aniston has been the star of ads for Glacéau smartwater. Launched in June magazines, the campaign features beautiful black-and-white photos, befitting a classic trendsetter of our times. Her beginnings as a style icon began with The Rachel haircut on Friends and continues to this day with movies such as Just Go With It, Horrible Bosses and recently Wanderlust. While her Rachel look is the most memorable, Jen has been a leader in other trends like the Bronde movement that’s still going strong today. This newer trend refers to blond on brown hair color. Her haircut, too, is well-known for being straight, angled around the face and lightly layered for built-in volume.

smartwater says, “good taste travels well.”
We say, “good style travels beautifully.”

Having followed Jen from the beginning, we know that she has always cared about keeping her hair healthy. Using good sense and help from her longtime hairstylist and friend Chris McMillan, Jen counteracts the dryness/damage that comes with chemical treatments and frequent blow-drying/heat styling. The stylist to the stars who created The Rachel is the owner of Chris McMillan The Salon in Beverly Hills and co-owner of McMillan Canale Salon in Malibu.

smartwater says, “live a life well hydrated.”
We say, “live a life with hair well hydrated!”

In a past interview with Allure magazine, Chris revealed some of their healthy hair care tips: “We pretty much have a formula. I use a Kérastase mousse at the crown and the ends and a little bit of Kérastase Sérum Oléo-Relax only on the ends–because we love the smell and how it moisturizes her hair.” Kératase Ciment Thermique also helps keep her hair in good shape and ultra-shiny.

Hairstyle aficionados may remember in 2011 when Ms. Aniston had her long hair cut off into a mid-length bob during the promo tour for the movie Just Go With It. In the January 2012 issue of InStyle mag JenA confided, “The real reason I cut my hair? My real hair was getting thinned out again from all the extensions. It was starting to look fake.” Earlier, around the time of the haircut, McMillan told allure.com, “It’s nice to take the extensions out of the hair and do something more natural.”

Jen gets the same kind of attention from her colorist Michael Canale, co-owner of the McMillan Canale salon. He usually keeps the highlights within a couple of shades of the star’s natural hair, so that she continues to look like a real-life California Blonde.

Kristen Stewart’s hair vs. Charlize Theron’s hair at ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ premieres

Whose hairstyle do you like better: Charlene’s or Kristen’s? 

For some reason, we don’t get much interest in the Celebrity Hairstyles of the hugely popular KStew or Movie Stars like Oscar-winning Charlize. Is there a reason for this? If you have the answer(s), please leave a comment. Thx!

And what about their fashions?
