Jordin Sparks set to ‘Sparkle’ in movie by the same name!

Wearing glam hair and fashion, Jordin looks every bit of the movie star she is becoming with the release of Sparkle in August.*

At Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards, Jordin stood out from the crowd, bringing a breath of fresh air to an industry that can be jaded, not-so-pretty and just plain tired.

Here you can see why the American Idol has become a style icon. Her look is an inventive mix of Retro and Avant-Garde. Close up, Jordin’s gown has a futuristic vibe with its slit-neck, notched bodice. But a full-figure view reveals the feminine skirt flowing from the leather top.

A fringe benefit of the strapless couture is the bare décolletage that draws all eyes up to Jordin’s striking facial features, which are also highlighted with hair swept back. Impeccable makeup and elegant earrings polish off the look.

Jordin’s hairstyle is fairly easy for anyone who has thick, curly locks. Simply apply your fave styling product to damp hair. Scrunch while drying naturally or while using a diffused blow-dryer. Comb hair back but loosen it before securing for a softer finish.

*Jordin and Whitney Houston  worked together in the movie Sparkle and contributed to the soundtrack. Their Celebrate duet from the film was the last song Whitney recorded before her untimely death.

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!
