Battle of the Blondes: Rita Ora’s hair vs. Rihanna’s hair

Different shades of blond, same kind of pose
Stars copying their predecesors is nothing new, but entertainment writers make it seem that way when referring to Rita Ora and Rihanna. The first “R” has even been called The British Rihanna. While they don’t look exactly alike, they have similar tastes such as low-cut gowns, little tats on their left sides and long blond curls. As for the differences, their light haircolors are not the same here: Rita poses in a Marilyn-like platinum and RiRi wears a hard-to-define blond all her own. The texture varies, too. Rita’s hair is smooth and polished and Rihanna’s full and loose!

Their blond hair color and Beanies are nearly the same!
Earlier this year, the singers were photographed in trendy Beanies and bleached blond. Since then Rita has topped the Vodafone Big Top 40 for a second week with her debut single R.I.P. Hence, the continued comparisons between Rita and the global superstar.

While their cat eyes are not identical, is their hair color?
It’s hard to tell, because  these images are captured in different settings. Rihanna’s hair has a hint of butter color, but that may be due to the natural lighting.

In the end, these questions aren’t important. It’s not a crime to emulate famous names from the past. Just think of all the women who have tried to look like Marilyn Monroe: Madonna, Christina Aguielera, Lady Gaga, Gwen Stefani, Michelle Williams and many more actresses.

What’s more interesting is whether Rita will continue to be labeled the new Rihanna and whether she will end up with a fraction of RiRi’s fame!

Emma Stone’s haircolor?

One of our bloggers wanted a haircolor similar to Emma Stone’s. Here’s the new hue…not a perfect match, but we love it!

Emma Stone

A few days ago, we wrote a tweet and facebook status about one of our writers who was getting her hair colored. She wanted something like Emma Stone’s red (in the Revlon ad below) but lighter red, blonder or more strawberry blond. The results are shown above right.

To get the look: hair was highlighted in blond and then rinsed with a color glaze, creating a red base and overall dark strawberry blond.

Our writer has gotten lots of compliments on the new hue, and she likes it…for now. She was hoping for a lighter red than she got, but will enjoy it for a couple of months…until she goes in for single-process color.

We are firm believers in experimenting with our hair. As one celebrity hairstylist told us long ago: “Have fun with your hair…it’ll grow out if you don’t like it!” Our sentiments exactly. Of course we know better than asking for Celebrity Hairstyles that are out of our reach…like this one of Emma Stone in rich dark red accented with gold streaks and luscious curls!

Emma StoneWhat do you think about the results? Does it remind you of any haircolor Emma Stone has worn in the past? (We’d love to get your opinion in the comments space below!)

Olivia Wilde’s hair vs. Emma Stone’s hair


Today’s hottest Celebrity Hairstyle and Color are two of a kind!

Have you ever noticed how much Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde look alike? The similarities aren’t that noticeable unless you see them side by side…as they were at the Revlon Run/Walk for Women yesterday. They seemed like sisters or cousins at the very least! This weekend, Emma and Olivia have gotten so much press about their matching looks that you can expect to see more news about their style.

What’s even more surprising is their outfits of the day, and this point was mentioned repeatedly in the coverage of the Run/Walk. Of course, it’s only natural that their clothes almost match…because both are Revlon spokeswomen and both were dressed to do sports!

If you’ve just noticed how alike they are, think back to their hair history…the resemblance is uncanny. Their haircolor, especially, has evolved so closely that it seems like they go to the same salon. In the near future we will show a few more examples of the Stone-Wilde connection so you can see what we mean!

Miranda Lambert’s hairstyle & her nine CMA award nominations

 

Earlier this year, Miranda Lambert won three awards from the Academy of Country Music and one from CMT. Those honors paved the way for her latest coup: nine CMA  award nominations — the most ever for a female in this contest! Her album Revolution plus songs White Liar and The House that Built Me put Miranda in the running for this year’s top Entertainer, Album, Song, Female Vocalist and Musical Event. What’s more, she’s been nominated twice for Single and Music Video of the Year.

While her career is soaring, Miranda’s hairstyles have stayed down to earth. The flashiest touch is chunky red highlighting through pale blond — the perfect match for her fiery Texas voice. The styles shown here prove how versatile long hair is, but they also offer fresh ideas for medium-length cuts. Her easiest ‘dos are straight, with hair worn off or on the face. Blow-drying small sections of hair at a time polish it up.

For a change of pace, the rising star chooses side bangs, volume and a little loose wave. She wore this style for a special date with fiancé Blake Shelton to the CMT Awards show. (BTW: the couple will face off in three CMA categories: musical event, single and music video of the year). To do the coif, apply a strong-hold styling product to damp hair. Use your fingers to blow-dry and finish with a large round brush.

To get the most elaborate of these coifs, hair should be volumized before being swept back. Create big curls around the face to soften what could be a severe style.

No matter what happens with the awards, it’ll be fun to see if Miranda’s hair changes between now and the CMA show in November.
