Red celebrity haircolor & girl crush: Emma Stone & Christina Hendricks

According to Perez Hilton, Emma Stone has a girl crush on Christina Hendricks. Supposedly Ms. Stone said, “Everything about her does it for me. That’s my kind of woman.”

Perez remarked that it’s too bad Christina is married, but he doesn’t know what he’s talking ’bout. A girl crush in this case means a great role model…someone a young star wants to be like (usually referring to her career).

Actually Emma Stone and Christina Hendricks could compare acting in movies and on TV and talk about the future for women in show biz. Also interesting is the similarity in their hot red haircolors and retro glam styles. While her idol goes with timeless dark red, Em chooses a lighter strawberry. Long bangs drape their faces with one from the side, the other from the center. In this case, Ms. Hendricks sweeps up her curls, and her admirer leaves them down and wavy.

In the end, both achieve looks worthy of the Golden Age in Hollywood…looks that are worthy of a girl crush!

The women of Mad Men: Elisabeth Moss, January Jones, Christina Hendricks

The fashion critics seem to diss the women of Mad Men every chance they get. The negative reviews usually focus on their wardrobes, but January Jones often garners bad marks for her hairstyles. January’s hair is either too messy, too trendy, too sedate, too whatever. We’re wondering what those holier-than-thou fashionistas are thinking after seeing the Mad Man & Women on the cover of Rolling Stone’s September issue. A recent flurry of comments resulted from the Emmys, where the top actresses struck a confident pose. January Jones was criticized for her messy hair and her short, electric blue dress with a pointy corset-style bodice. Elisabeth Moss was snickered at for her old-fashioned glamour look. And as usual the Joan Rivers types slammed Christina Hendricks for showing off her curvy figure at a time when stick-thin women are still in vogue. A few of the experts ARE predicting that the hourglass silhouette will be everywhere next season. Perhaps hairstyles will follow suit and become as voluptuous as the women of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Advertising Agency.

Here they show how high volume works on straight to curly locks. The ever fearless leader of the pack, January is steps ahead of the trend with her asymmetrical bob and kicky ends. If you have a good haircut, styling is as easy as applying a volumizing product, blow-drying hair upside down, gently combing and fingering into place and then spritzing on a strong-hold spray. Next we see that while Peggy’s away, Elisabeth will play! On Mad Men the secretary-rising star of the agency, Peggy is slowly becoming a little less dowdy and a little more feminine. But even when she turns on the glamour, Peggy stays restrained. It’s fun to see the real woman behind the character–Ms. Moss pretty, glamorous, poised yet totally relaxed. Her do isn’t as difficult as you might think. After blow-drying hair with a round brush, set it on hot rollers and let hair cool before brushing it.  Back-comb, gel and spray to your heart’s desire. Like Elisabeth, Christina gets to step out of the strict secretary/office manager position. When Christina is able to let Joan’s hair down, out of the tight updo, she looks real. To copy, curl hair vertically with rollers or a big-sized curling iron.

We’ve come to the end of our episode. To be continued…

 

 

Mad Women hairstyles: January Jones, Christina Hendricks, Elisabeth Moss


The hairstyles from Mad Men are gone, but not forgotten!

While Mad Men revolves around the guys, they wouldn’t be anywhere without their women. More and more, the ladies are revealing there’s more to their characters than meets the eye. Their retro hairstyles make them look like spoiled housewives and sexy secretaries, and we could write off their demure dos as old-fashioned. But if you look hard enough, there are a few touches that are still around today. Betty Draper changes hairstyles like Don changes women, but glamour curls are a favorite. Now imagine if those curls were brushed out, slept in or wind-blown… the results would be pretty similar to January Jones’ modern mane. It’s a good thing we can copy the coif without going to a salon once a week (who has the time, money or desire to do that?). Styling with a round brush and blow-drier or a large curling iron are a couple of ways to do it. 

 

The funny thing about Christina Hendricks’ current look is how similar it is to Joan’s (her character). They are both up-sweeps with a few curls left loose, but the older version has the pumped up crown of that era. Even though Joan is one of the hardest workers at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, she finds time to do her impeccable hair and makeup in the morning and keep it fresh all day and night.

Peggy Olson cares more about being a successful ad exec than how she looks. Every now and then Peggy HAS to play the femme fatale, but when she does, the results are beautiful. Actress Elisabeth Moss makes the transition possible with her classic good looks. Judging from pix of Elisabeth today, it seems like she favors romantic glamour styles in real life. 

As time goes, it will be interesting to see how the fashions change on Mad Men and if we can get any style twists we can borrow!
