Britney Spears’ hair makeovers: new looks for ‘X Factor,’ ‘Till the World Ends’ & more!

“Britney’s back!”
that’s what entertainment writers are saying about Ms. Spears. They are referring to the revival of her career, evidenced in her new role as an X Factor judge and her video/ad ‘Till The World Ends (Twister Remix). Others are raving about B’s new bikini bod. While that’s all well and good, we say “Britney’s back” because of her hair and style. In the past she has made bad choices like going bald and letting her extensions fall out. So far her new ‘dos have been pretty good.

As usual, Brit doesn’t stick with one style—she prefers to mix it up. Her Facebook profile photo (at top of post) is sleek, platinum blond and falls just below the shoulders. At X Factor auditions (above), she’s flaunting loose curls and a slightly off-center part (but that day her hair didn’t get as much attention as her cleavage).

Just days ago, the pop princess debuted multicolored dip-dye ends that are everywhere these days with celebs and real women alike. The teal, blue and hot pink tips came out at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas last weekend. Inspired by My Little Pony (and X Factor co-judge Demi Lovato?), her mane stayed streaked on Monday. With all of Simon Cowell’s dislike for Ms. Spears’ wardrobe, we’re wondering if he’ll ban the dip-dye. (But how can he nix Brit’s color scheme without banning Demi’s?)

During promos for X-Factor, the bombshell blonde was simply lovely in the straight but full, unlayered locks that she often favors. Also in the pre-season promos, one of her Celebrity Hairstyles was spiral curled for a modern update on crimpy curls. To copy her loose curls, use a waving or curling iron. To keep that soft, sexy look, don’t brush out the curls; just finger them gently into place and spritz on a strong-hold hair spray.

As for the bleached blond color, don’t even think about doing it yourself! Go to a salon and have it done by a professional colorist. The experts at celebrityhaircolorguide.com explain the type of techniques your colorist should use. They recommend Organic Color Systems ammonia-free formula in two shades of white for foil highlights then a regrowth color cream at the roots and sporadically through the ends. For styling products, they recommend Cocktailing Hydrate Leave-In, Gloss Serum and Mousse.

In other news, Brit has been having lots of fun showing off her trim and toned figure. In a recent tweet, she included a photo of herself in a bikini with this message: “Y’all ready for summer to end? I’m definitely not!” A photo that she posted on Facebook recently showed the pop princess in a little top and cut-offs. Even though the pop princess has been working out regularly, US Weekly says the photo of her in a white bikini is four years old!

It doesn’t matter what the critics say about her body. Who needs a stick-thin figure when she has everything else going for her? It will be interesting to see if the former Disney star is able to recoup her title as top pop princess.

Agyness Deyn’s buzz cut is growing on us!

In early June we were caught off guard when Agyness Deyn got a crew cut. We wondered why the supermodel would give up the pretty “bowl” bob that she made famous? Watching Agyness for a couple of months, we’re starting to see the beauty of the buzz… namely that her stunning  face can stand on its own. Few women can get away with this, so why not do it if you can? Agyness is making little changes that spice up the crop, going from dirty blond to red hot to cool white.

Seeing the It Girl so comfortable in her hair makes it look better and starts to seem like a natural for the model/trendsetter. Right after the short-to-shorter haircut Agyness didn’t seem too pleased. Now she seems happy and at ease in the new ‘do. Agyness’ crew cut fits the avant-garde image she often creates in fashion mags. The Madonna-like model seems right at home in the New York Issue of V Magazine as a Hare Krishna and a Britney Spears gone goth girl binging on Cheetos.

Another reason for Agyness to smile is naag.com, an online magazine that she launched with her journalist friend Fiona Byrne (above). In an interesting role reversal, the woman before the camera becomes the Creative Director behind the scenes–photographing gal pals and sharing secrets about her beauty products, movies, restaurants and a lot more! It’s hard for us (in the Second City) to relate to all the NYC stuff; however, most any girl/woman can appreciate what these trendies have to say.

Just take a quick peek at the lifestyle mag and you’ll find info on things like Mororoccanoil hair treatment for all types. It’s a short post, but here’s how it starts: “If you’re anything like us, the mere mention of the word ‘oil’ in the same sentence as ‘hair’ has an entirely negative connotation, one that takes you back to zits, braces and hormones and memories of those girls in class who thought it was OK to wash their hair once a week during the oiliest of those teenage hair years. Ew.”

“Even the finest of hair won’t be weighed down with residue,” according to Ms. Byrne, “and as one who sports the finest and silkiest of hair with an inherent fear of lank, greasy tresses, we can vouch for the fact that this oil is light as a feather. It’s a moroccaniracle!” (Moroccanoil is available starting at from $14.99 at Rickysnyc.com).

Getting back to the whole reason for this post… Agyness’ short-short is becoming bold AND beautiful to us (even though we would never dare to bare our head like that!)

Miley Cyrus’ style: going straight from PG to R

Dear Miley,
We know it’s time for you to give up Hannah Montana, grow up and expand your career outside of the Disney Channel. But why did you have to go and choose Britney and Lindsey for your role models? #1 they aren’t pretty. #2 they don’t act grown up. #3 they aren’t talented. #4 you’re limiting your audience if you copy the LLO and Brit type pseudo-stars #5 Madonna’s lingerie fashions made sense, but you are no Madonna (and neither is Lady Gaga!). #6 why don’t you copy celebs who balance sexy with sophisticated? Jennifer Lopez’s hot looks are close to what you want, but she doesn’t go overboard (most of the time!). Natalie Portman has done what you are so desperately seeking–transitioning from girl to woman–BUT she did it in a subtle manner. When she plays risqué characters in the movies, you know it’s not the real Natalie…she’s just a great actress doing her job. When she’s not filming, Ms. Portman goes back to her classic casual coifs.

Miley, we have to apologize for dissing your poor taste. There are plenty of times when you are the picture of beauty and poise… like when you wore a sleek ponytail with a high crown and loose curls highlighted in bronde (the trendy blond-brunette color combo). These pix only go to show how soft-spoken style can be just as hot as pole-dancing ‘dos!

Of course, none of this matters. You are a grown woman (girl?) and you’ll do what you wanna do.

Good luck!
