Taylor Swift’s hair: dark new hair color makes ‘Sparks Fly’

Taylor’s made one of her boldest style moves ever—going from blond to bronde (brown with blond highlights) for her latest CoverGirl campaign!

“See yourself, be yourself” gave Taylor a chance to show how hair and makeup can totally change your look (and fit your mood!). The video below presents Tay’s four styles. In addition to going into great detail on the styles, she talks about having a variety of styles. “I think in life we have a bunch of different versions of ourselves,” she says, adding that the look depends on your personality and the event—from talking with friends, hanging out at home or being in a job interview.

“I think it’s all equally different the way we choose to dress, the way we choose our makeup,” she continues. “The cool thing about makeup is that it can be so different on any given day.” The same is true about hair and fashion, as you can see here and in the video.

The Natural Look
In different lighting, the blond highlights are more noticeable. This smooth style has more curl than the Boho, but it’s not as tight as Glam!

Celebrity haircolor: the bronde brigade

 

Long before it had a name, bronde was a haircolor.  For ages brunettes have been adding a little blonde to their hair. Then in 2007 celebrity stylist Kim Vo coined the word “bronde” and it stuck. Women go bronde for many reasons: to lighten up, flatter themselves or just have more fun! Its appeal is timeless as sun-kissed brown seems natural and resembles the perfect haircolor of a child. Brown/blonde comes from fine highlights on naturally dark or lowlighted hair.

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen is the quintessential bronde and the inspiration behind the name. We were going to put her picture on top but couldn’t resist using the trio of Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez and Natalie Portman (considered the brondes of the day). Miley and singer Demi Lovato (right) represent the younger generation who’s embracing bronde for something they think is new and different. Compared to Gisele, Demi is a darker brunette with sunny streaks on top and around the face.

Miley goes high contrast with brown that’s almost black and blonde that’s almost white. The light streaks and shorter curls separate her from the Hannah Montana she’s trying to do get away from. Jennifer and Natalie have the same idea: hightlights so subtle they could have come from the sun. Jennifer has more blond in her bangs and very fine highlights throughout to give her waves incredible shine. Natalie proves that less is more for stars as well as real women who don’t have the time to fool with the high maintenance kind of bronde. 

Sarah Jessica Parker stands out as the blondest in the bunch and that’s OK for the fashionista of Sex in the City. Meanwhile Michelle Pfeiffer swirls gold on brown to distinguish her spiral curls. 

As you can see, all brondes are not the same. In the near future we are going to add more brondes to the list and tell how to get the look.

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!
