Celebrity Apprentice Aubrey O’Day’s hair: “you’re fired!”

When Aubrey O’Day was announced as a Celebrity Apprentice contestant, we didn’t know who she was. We thought she had a lot in common with Maria Kanellis, a former C.A. contender, just because of their looks: red hair, curvy figures and skimpy fashions.

Boy, were we wrong! In all but one way, Kanellis is heads above O’Day. The only advantage Aubrey has is her creativity. Everything else about Aubry is negative–her nonstop egomania, manipulation and meanness. Every week, Aubrey takes over the task even when she isn’t the project manager. (Oh yeah there was one week after her meltdown that she decided to be quiet and mellow.) Ms. O’Day doesn’t respect or tolerate anyone else (especially old people) on the show except for Lisa Lampanelli (who hasn’t been a direct competitor).

We were also wrong about their hair. While Maria’s hair looks natural, everything about Aubrey seems artificial–from the clownish red to the hairstyles no self-respecting woman would wear. Before the games began, we thought that Aubrey would do some pretty, interesting things with her hair as Ms. Kanellis did (and still does). Actually you could call Aubrey’s hairstyle choices interesting…in a bad way! The old “I Dream of Jeannie” look (above left) is only one of the many outrageously ugly hairdos (or don’ts) in the world of Celebrity Hairstyles. The studio photo (above) is attractive from a distance, but up-close seems like the work of a professional hairstylist. If Aubrey did her hair like this, it would take hours of blowdrying and styling with a curling iron.

Many of her bad coif choices happen when her hair is worn up. For example, there’s the sky-high beehive that shows off dark roots and unusually bright red of the topknot. The back view is unpleasant, too, with that un-kept haircolor. Another poor Aubrey coif (above right) doesn’t seem so bad at first glance. But look closely and you’ll notice the unflattering center part, flat crown, waves and dry ends.

When it comes down to it: Aubrey’s image is Playboy Bunny gone wrong. Admittedly skin-baring models can look good when styled well: Aubrey isn’t one of them. Even her cleavage looks fake!

Try as she might, Aubrey will never get away from her bimbo label. As usual she blamed someone else when she talked to the Huffington Post. “I think Celebrity Apprentice has roles they want to fit people in and I was the sexy Playboy bunny role. A lot of people were surprised that I would be more than that and they had to restructure what to do with the show because of that.”

In the end, we could care less about her career. We just like making fun of her!

Aubrey O’Day’s hair vs. Maria Kanellis’ hair

Did you know the answer(s) to the question we posed on Jan. 10: what do Aubrey O’Day and Maria Kanellis have in common? You don’t have to be a genius to know one of the multiple choice answers… It’s clear they are both red-hot redheads. A second answer is not so clear if you are new to our blog. Fans of Celebrity Apprentice might know the answer or discover it soon when The Trump starts his new season of myriad egomaniac enterprises that would better named The World’s Worst Boss. New viewers will see that Aubrey is an Apprentice-wanna be this year. Those who’ve followed C.A. remember Maria from her extended job interview two years ago.

Another answer comes from a male reader: “They’re both hot!” he raved a day after the blog was posted. We’re guessing their hairstyles’ popularity will be another commonality. Aubrey O’Day’s wavy hair will be just as popular as Maria Kanelli’s hair is (judging from our stats). Even their careers are similar: a reality star and a WWE diva who both would rather be known as singers rather than for their sex appeal or past “success?”.

But let’s get back to the mane thing:
O’Day’s hair and Kanellis’ hair. Above Aubrey’s red is brighter than Maria’s… we think it’s a little MUCH, not natural-looking and bordering on  clown-ish. However, the lighting exaggerates and contributes to the cartoon-like carrot top. In real life (right), the color is much better… but still out there. What’s more interesting about Aubrey’s red hair is that in the past she’s alternated from light to dark to dishwater blond. Her new red is surprising and seems to be inspired by Rihanna, who often shows up in cherry red or auburn ringlets.

What about their hairstyles?
Obviously one long-hair is wavy, the other’s straight. Not so obvious is the fact that Maria has to spend a lot of time smoothing out her curls when she wants them tamed down (top). Just as Aubrey is more recognizable in straight hair, she has gone wavy here. In the candid shots here, the colors and styles are more alike: loose waves.

You might call us snobs because we get our hair colored by salon professionals. We have seen great do-it-at-home color on women who know what they’re doing. But more often than not we see bad dye jobs.

In this case, we have to admit that it wouldn’t be challenging to do Aubrey’s red at home. That and Maria’s 2nd red are well suited for DIYers because they are single process and easy to match with color in a box. Maria’s first hue would be harder to recreate because it has subtle highlights mixed in with the red base.
