Emma Stone Strawberry Blonde: Cool Celebrity Hair Color for Summer 2012!

For red-hot color brighten dark hair or add depth to light blond!

No matter how she colors it, Emma Stone’s hair is always pretty, flattering and simply stunning–in strawberry blond, copper, red, auburn, platinum, etc. For years now, Emma Stone has been a leading–if not the leading–trendsetter in hair color–for celebs and real women alike. She changes the hue so often we’re not sure what it is today. The strawberry blond in question (above) refers to Emma’s hot look at the annual Met Ball on May 7th.

We could search photos all day and might not find the color du jour, but we’d rather spend our time learning how Em keeps her hair healthy and natural-looking through the wash-and-wear of color changes and constant styling.

As usual with the rich and famous, Miss Stone has an advantage with help from Tracey Cunningham, Redken’s Colorist of the Year Award for 2011. Tracey has worked with stars such as Charlize Theron, Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Lopez and Emily Blunt and Sofia Vergara. She’s popular because of her ability to maintain healthy hair through the coloring process. Some of her secrets are as simple as using a temporary product like Redken Shades EQ Cream to get rich color and radiant shine. Some celeb-style colors–namely single process–can be achieved at home. But highlights, lowlights, platinum, etc. are best left to salon colorists.

Emma Stone’s hair color: strawberry blond, more or less ? You tell us!

Is Emma’s strawberry hair color more blond or more red?

It’s a trick question: we think the answer depends on the lighting, angle, fashions, whether she’s in- or outdoors and how her hair is styled–up or down.

Do you buy hairstyle magazines? Or do you get style ideas from blogs, social media, etc.?

Bella Poll: Do You Buy Hairstyle Magazines?.

This is an old post from bellasugar/POPSUGAR, but it’s still a good question, and always will be applicable to us at realhairstyles.net.

But another reason we’re re-sending this post is the gr8 image that went with it!

The reason we love the magazine is because our blog leader, Mary James, worked for more than 15 years as a contributing writer/editor for Harris Publications, publisher of Celebrity Hairstyles.

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!

Celebrity style: Drew Barrymore’s haircolor knows no bounds!

Will the true Drew please stand up?
You may think we are being harsh on Ms. Barrymore lately, but we’re just wondering why she would wear downright ugly hairstyles when she can look like the redheaded or blonde Cover Girl she is … after all she represents CoverGirl, the makeup.

Will the true Drew please stand up?
You may think we are being harsh on Ms. Barrymore lately, but we’re just wondering why she would wear downright ugly hairstyles when she can look like the redheaded or blonde Cover Girl she is … after all she represents CoverGirl, the makeup.

Maybe it’s because she’s so independent…
If that’s the case, we applaud the child star who has turned out
better than most little actors (not counting Ron Howard). Actually it’s
refreshing to see a star who doesn’t seem to care about conforming to Hollywood
style.

Getting back to the hair…
Recently Drew has gotten carried away with two-tone coloring that resembles
dark roots growing out. She’s one of our examples trendy tresses outstaying their welcome i.e. ombré gone bad. Ms. Barrymore must have missed the memo that says, “good ombré coloring needs to go gradually from dark to light.”

Oh well, the criticism is moot now that…

She’s washed that (h)ombre right out of her hair…
and replaced it with a warm copper color that works well for summer and will transition beautifully into Fall (if Drew doesn’t tire of the new hue by then!)

Ombré celebrity haircolor: Sarah Jessica Parker, Drew Barrymore, Alexa Chung, Gisele Bündchen, Lauren Conrad, Lily Aldridge & Niki Minaj’s bad example

The good, the bad and the ugly
The two-tone haircolor trend better known as ombré has been making waves with celebs for a while and it’s still going strong with young women in real life. Girls in their teens to 20s have embraced the old/new hue with open arms. Here are a few A-listers who are basking in the hottest shade under the sun (for the moment)!
Let’s start with a “good” example: Sarah Jessica Parker has been rocking ombré since the early days of Sex and the City. SJP returns to it often … when she’s not modeling one of Garnier’s colors.

On the other end of the spectrum is Drew Barrymore. Poor Drew gets stuck in haircolor hell more often than not. When she’s not in movies or in magazines, the child-adult star is the victim of experiments gone wrong.

While we’re covering the bad, let’s look at former model Alexa Chung. Sometimes she falls into not-so-good category, sometimes she doesn’t. Like Drew, Alexa looks beautiful at awards shows, in mags and anywhere that requires the cover girl image. Actually there’s quite a few good versions of Alexa as an ombré woman, but we’ll show them at a different time.

Depending on your likes and dislikes, Niki Minaj could fall into the good or the ugly category. The mane reason we’re showing it is because  she embodies the true meaning of ombré i.e. a French term meaning “shaded” or multicolored stripe graduating from light to dark. Technically ombré refers to a color effect that’s woven into fabric.

“Pretty” good sums up the trend à la Lily Aldridge when she was photographed by April Hubal. Creating a look like Lily’s or Drew’s isn’t all that hard, according to Sarah, colorist at our beloved Charles Ifergan’s salon in Chicagoland. While we thought it would be a painstaking three-color process, Sarah says it’s simply a little tedious for the colorist. It’s easiest if the top of your hair is already dark, but a single color rinse can do the same thing. But first Sarah teases a small section around the head where she wants the dark to blend into light. The she does foil highlights on the ends and uses a brush and water to comb the lighter shade into the teased area. If needed or desired, the top can have a single process color. Depending on the length and type of hair, Sarah’s ombré method isn’t any more expensive than other highlight treatments. However, she adds, it’s not a great look for blondes.

If you want to go with something easier, something that requires less commitment, follow the lead of Gisele Bündchen and Lauren Conrad. Their dark-to-light shades are so subtle you might not consider them ombré. As we’ve said before Gisele is also known as a bronde because of her brown-blondish locks. No matter what you call it, Gisele and Lauren model color schemes that work well for real women.

Specifically, Gisele’s color ranges from dark brown on top and underneath to fine highlights everywhere else. Lauren has light streaks around the face and everything blends into a gold-kissed platinum color.

We hope this has given you food for thought. If not, we will be serving up more portions for you to chew on at a later date!

What’s ombré haircolor? Hint, hint: Drew Barrymore, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Biel, etc.

More clues: It’s similar to subtle brond (brown/blond), auburn (brown/red) or dramatic multicolored chunks. Not too long ago Drew Barrymore wore the worst example of ombré we’ve seen so far. The exotic color scheme has been a fave of Sarah past and present—Sex and the City—TV then, movies now. Jessica seemed predisposed to ombré as early as 2007. If we’ve piqued your interest, come back to realhairstyles.net  We’ll reveal the meaning of ombré and how to make it yours!
