Michelle Williams has what it takes to be an “It” girl, as she’s shown in her numerous makeovers since Dawson’s Creek. Back then long, goldie locks were perfect for her semi-reformed bad girl opposite Katie Holmes‘ good girl. After serious roles like Brokeback Mountain and Shutter Island, the Oscar-nominated star became a new woman for the Cannes Film Festival in May. She went pretty short and platinum blond with long bangs swerving to one side… just in time to promote her new movie Blue Valentine. The daring ‘do and challenging acting jobs have helped establish Michelle as an indie star. An even shorter pixie cut in strawberry blond showed off her bravado (along with her stunning facial features!). Filming a new movie in Toronto calls for a fresh look, and Ms. Williams answers the call with a longer, darker strawberry bob… oddly enough she seems younger than ever! All of these transformations makes us wonder what’s next for this fearless trendsetter.

The woman with January Jones IS January Jones… but you knew that didn’t you?
In a previous post we asked, “Who’s that girl with January Jones?” We were talking ’bout the drop-dead redhead above. Fans of January recognized her immediately as Betty Draper from Mad Men. While the model-turned-actress is well known for taking risks with her looks, she usually ends up resembling Grace Kelly, according to celeb stylist Mark Townsend. He thought it was time for January to break out of that mold. The creator of MARKTBeauty decided to replace Mrs. Draper of the ’60s with a hot-blooded Parisienne from the ’20s. As you can see, the results were dramatic… a far cry from the hairstyles of Don Draper’s long-suffering wife.
If you love January’s smart blonde hairstyles, don’t worry. The look was very temporary thanks to a natural-looking wig Mark used for the do-over. He and makeup artist Rachel Goodwin wanted to show how hair and makeup “can be used to really transform a person’s look.” At stylist.com, Townsend reveals how real women can copy the coif. Simply ask your stylist to design a bold bob with touches like short to long angles, and then ask the haircutter to use thinning shears on the ends. Dare-devils will want to finish with a bang, dark brows, color or something that brings even more attention to the eye-catching do!
