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.
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.)
Do you agree with MAXIM’s picks for their HOT 100?
More important: what do you think about their hair?
Although our HOT 100 would be different from MAXIM’s, their infamous list always draws us in. This year it’s even more interesting because the rankings are based on Readers’ Opinions for the first time in one hundred years of Hot 100 history. This year we were pleasantly surprised by another first: Stephen Colbert placed Number 69 on the rankings (thanks to a massive write-in vote campaign)
Now let’s get to the meat of the matter. Help us choose the HOTTEST HAIRSTYLES from the MAXIM 100. For the complete list, click here.
Julianne Hough’s racing ponyis tame enough to wear during the day yet frisky enough for evenings out. To copy the coif exactly, you have to have long bangs and hair that will hold the wave after blow-dry styling and curling with large Velcro®/hot rollers or a curling iron. For added lift at back of crown, backcomb or insert a little hair “bump” underneath; then gently smooth out hair on top. Keep the front loose when making the tail.
Taylor Swift’s ponytails can go many different ways, and so can Julianne’s, come to think of it! Here are only two examples of long hair’s versatility. Taylor’s spiral curls are swept to one side and spill out from braided look above the tail. Another day, Taylor chooses straight hair smoothed back and secured with a strand of hair over a coated elastic holder. Bangs and long sideburns create a flattering frame for the face and soften the updo.
