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.

Celebrity Hairstyles that have personality: Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez

There’s more to celebrity style
than meets the eye!

Demi doesn’t succumb to the pressure to be perfect as defined by Hollywood’s standards. The X-factor judge takes trends and makes them her own. Here, she puts a new twist on purple hair color and wears a super-high ponytail wrapped up in strands that match the bright hue.

Unlike many stars her age, Selena hasn’t turned into a wild woman as she transitions from teen to young miss. She strikes the perfect balance by wearing s sophisticated hairstyle and a gown that shows just the right amount of skin! While her image isn’t R-rated, she plans to do more “adult” songs in the near future.

When you hear the name Taylor Swift, you think of long blond spiral curls. Although that look’s a fan favorite, Tay has changed it up quite a bit through the years. Most of the pix above feature the dark haircolor she’s wearing in her new CoverGirl campaign. So far, we can’t tell what her admirers think about the brown, but we like it and commend her for making such a big change.

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.
