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!

Pink’s hair vs. Katy Perry’s hair & rumored lip-synching at The Billboard Music Awards

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!

Micaela Schaefer: strip ‘tease’ distracts from pretty hair at MIB3 premiere!

Beautiful hair and makeup aren’t enough to get her “all” of the attention  she craves. So Micaela goes nearly naked to the German premiere of Men in Black 3, hogging the spotlight on the Red Carpet!

Are you desperate to get noticed? Do you think your looks, brains and personality aren’t doing the trick? If so, follow the lead of Micaela Schaefer, Germany’s Next Top Model contestant. Wear the least amount of clothing or material (VHS tape) to a big event that will be saturated with paparazzi. That’s exactly what Micaela did, and she got her day or two of fame, making headlines all around the world! The plan may have backfired because the news wasn’t flattering.

She’s been called all kinds of names but our favority is “attention whore,” a gorgeous woman who feels like she has to sell her body to get ahead.

It’s funny that her luscious hair and makeup went unnoticed during her strip tease. Many women would be happy to have perfectly shiny ringlets twirling down their back. Another potentially eye-catching touch is a headband of braided hair contrasting with the smooth crown. Hot pink lipcolor and coordinating eye makeup are of-the-moment and finish off a look that cries out for a classic gown, colorful mini or flowy pantsuit.

It will be interesting to see if anyone remembers this bikini model after a few weeks. Of course, she might extend her expiration date by continuing to wear the Emperor’s Clothes.

We’re sure there are plenty of men and women who love to see Micaela au naturel…so if you want to see more of her full-body shots, click here!

Men in Black 3 premiere: Micaela Schaefer’s barely-there clothes trump pretty hair

Beautiful hair and pretty facial features aren’t enough to make her the center of attention. So Micaela goes nearly naked to the German premiere of Men in Black 3, stealing the spotlight from the real stars on the Red Carpet!

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?

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.

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.

Courtney Robertson’s Bachelor hairstyle (or lack thereof)!

Weeks ago–before Courtney Robertson won The Bachelor–we were ready to write scathing posts about her, questioning her sanity, his sanity, the producers’ sanity and the sanity of anyone associated with the modern Dating & Let’s Get Married Game. Like the rest of the world, we didn’t like her lying and scheming character, complete with baby voice, exhibitionist behavior and lack of respect for the other Bachelorettes (we’re not sure she respects many members of the female sex).But now that the dust has settled, we’re starting to change our mind about the diva. If you believe the tabs, Bachelor Ben Flajnik started cheating on his “fiancée” even as they were moving in together. The latest coverage is putting a diff light on Courtney…as the suffering woman who’s setting up house while Ben jets to Vegas with the boys.

Like you, we’re sick of the whole thing. However we have to go on record about her hair: it’s not that good! Her locks were at their best when wet…so that was most of the time on the show. In general there was nothing interesting about the hairstyles of any Bachelorette. If we get any feedback from this post, we might write more about how dull their dos really are!

The Bachelor (US TV series)

LeAnn Rimes’ hairstyle: better than before, but not what it used to be!

Judging from the 2012 ACM Awards show, LeAnn Rimes looks better than she has in quite some time. Perhaps that’s because she’s happy to be divorced from her first husband and now married to Eddie Cibrian. The happy couple were both cheating on spouses when their love affair blossomed.

We really don’t care about her twisted love life, but we’re glad her hair is improving. Her tousled topknot perfectly combines messy, cute and chic. Loose wisps and sleek crown contrast beautifully with twirled and rolled ends. We can’t say the same about LeAnn’s fashion choice for the ACMs. She appeared on some worst-dressed lists from Sunday even though she was wearing Stella McCartney! It doesn’t matter what we think–you be the judge.

An example of LeAnn’s not-so-pretty past is the 2010 CMT awards. We couldn’t believe her “wasted” appearance in both her hair and stick-thin figure (that has sparked never-ending rumors of anorexia). A closeup shot of Ms. Rimes Cibrian reveals a stringy mess of split ends and frizzy layers–no rhyme or reason to her ‘do.

Back in 2009 bellasugar.com complimented LeAnn for her Grammys’ hairstyle. We don’t think it’s that great, but if you disagree and want to get the look, go here.

Even if you disagree with everything we’ve said here, you have to admit there’s no comparison with her long-gone glamour styles like the pretty Shag below.

We’d love to hear what you think about any of our opinions expressed here (and in any realhairstyles post for that matter!)

Jennifer Lawrence: we knew her when…

Jennifer Lawrence on the red carpet at the 83r...

We just read an article about how Jennifer Lawrence had to pretty herself up to be taken as an actress who could play feminine roles (or sexy according to Hollywood’s standards). Even though we learned how pretty she is after right after Winter’s Bone, most style critics and fans didn’t discover that until now. She’s poised to become a household name because of her stand-out role of Katniss in Hunger Games. Before she jets into stardom, Jennifer appears down-to-earth, “almost goofy,” according to one interview. Since being captivated by her in Winter’s Bone, you can be sure we’ll be following her every move (in style as well as career). When it comes to acting and her hair she is a chameleon, and she’s sure to do that in Style, too!
