Julianne Hough Blonde vs. Jessica Biel Brunette at MTV Movie Awards

go straight to celebrity HairStyles: bangs or no bangs. thick or fine. light or dark. it’s all good.

Whether famous or not, most women don’t like to be caught wearing the same thing in the same place. But that’s not an issue when it comes to hair. We doubt anyone at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards noticed that Julianne Hough and Jessica were both wearing long, straight hair. When they’re side by side, you can see the  resemblance.

THE CUT. THE COLOR.

Julianne’s mane is blunt cut with a distinct center part and single-process white blond. Meanwhile Jessica opts for ruler-straight bangs, angled fringe, subtle center part, and brown with a touch of ombré.

THE STYLING.

Getting the looks is similar, but the products vary to give Julianne more texture and Jessica more sleekness. Each ‘do starts with meticulous blow-drying, using a large round brush and working with small sections at a time. Finish with a flat iron or follow this tip from Jessica’s hairstylist Renato Campora: apply a dab of Frederic Fekkai’s Ironless Straightening Balm. (He uses another Fekkai product Brilliant Glossing Cream on the brunette’s damp hair before drying.)

Welcome back… Celeb hairstyles of Taylor Swift, Emma Stone, Meghan Linsey, Mad Men & much, much more

In honor of the New Year, we are doing a Grand Re-Opening of realhairstyles.net. For a variety of reasons (health of significant others, our real jobs and other circumstances beyond our control), we have been gone for far too long. So for 2012 we are resolving to do one blog posting a week or at the very least once every two weeks. While we were gone, you were faithful to us. Our first action is reassessing our viewer stats of all time. These stats have stayed consistent for the past year and a half, and they give us a good idea of your fave (and not so fave) celebrity hairstyles.

The top most-viewed are:
1. Home page
2. Country Music Hairstyles: Taylor Swift, Julianne Hough, Martina McBride, Carrie Underwood
3. Emma Stone’s hair color: What was she thinking? Blond and Fall for Emma Stone’s haircolor Rich Red
4. Taylor Swift’s hairstyles “Speak Now!”
5. Meghan Linsey’s hairstyle, boyfriend and their “Steel Magnolia”
6. Miley Cyrus‘ style going straight from PG to R
7. Carey Mulligan’s hair: an Education in style (we wouldn’t have guessed this because her weekly and monthly stats weren’t that high!)
8. Mad Women hairstyles: January Jones, Christina Hendricks & Elizabeth Moss
9. Ombre celebrity haircolor: Sarah Jessica Parker, Drew Barrymore, Alexa Chung, Gisele Bundchen…
10. Demi Lovato’s hair sparks public debate

Other most-viewed posts include topics such as Jennifer Anist0n’s lob, Agyness Deyn‘s buzz cut, more Meghan Linsey, Evangeline Lilly’s hairstyles: Lost and Found, new style Fish-Tail Braids (Leona Lewis, Jennifer Aniston & Evangeline), Brond haircolor and much, much more.

On the other hand, the lowest of the low were looked at only 2 to 29 times. Among your non-interesting subjects are Miley Cyrus (note that one of her posts is in the top 10!), Green hairstyles, Kate Gosselin, Rihanna, Betty White, Jessica Simpson, Katherine Heigl, Taylor Swift/Jake Gyllenhaal, latest Robin Hood movie, bangs for babies, Sarah Michelle Gellar before and after Buffy, Ke$sha, Hayden Panettierie (personally a mane makover we loved) and sideswept hairstyles of Sandra Bullock, Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet and Katee Sackhoff… whew…we’re out of breath and can’t bear to continue with the negatives.

We’re also nearing the end of our Jan. 2, 2012 posting. After all we can’t sum up 6 months in 1 day! So we’ll sum it up with blogs we hope to post in the next month: The Best Hairstyles of 2011; Hairstyles of Ashlee Simpson, Emma Watson, Emma Watson, Julianne Hough, Jennifer Aniston, etc.; Kate Hudson’s worst hairstyle ever!; Rooney Mara and the hottest rising hairstyles today; etc., etc.

More on ombré haircolor: Camilla Alves and Jessica Biel

Actress wanna-be Camila Alves is better known as Matthew McConaughey’s girlfriend and mother to their child, but WE know her as an example of ombré haircolor done well. Technically this popular hue describes a dark hue that fades into highlights in the middle of ends of hair, and that fits Camila to a T. Her two hues are each distinct yet perfectly blended from black to golden brown. Expertly applied like this, ombré resembles colored hair growing out naturally. On the other hand we have Jessica Biel, usually included in features about the two-tone trend. Even though she’s considered a poster child for ombré, Jess barely fits the definition (in our opinion). On one side, the color varies from dark to light, but on the other the mane has only a few blond streaks. Perhaps this less-is-more approach makes Jess a popular leader in this field. It’s certainly more practical for real women.

Both of these dos are worlds’ better than a bad ombré  (think Drew Barrymore). With that in mind, make sure you find a colorist who has mastered the technique. While you’re at it, search out other clients who’ve had it done, and get their opinion. The rest is up to you!

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!
