VMAs Hairstyles…starring Rihanna in super short hair plus Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato

We hope you had a chance to watch or record the MTV Video Music Awards last night…especially if you want (or need) a new hairstyle.

If you haven’t watched the VMAs yet, go to hollywoodlife.com. or click on the photo above. For us, Rihanna was the mane news last night. Unless you read about it right before the awards show, Rihanna cutting off her hair came as a big surprise. Our response: We love, love, love it!

While Ri got most of our attention, there were plenty of other hair headliners. Some are saying the newly shorn star was inspired by Miley Cyrus, Elisabeth Moss, Emma Watson (who has grown out her hair) and Anne Hathaway (who’s in the process of going longer).

Speaking of Miley, she took an unexpected twist by wearing her hair up in a of-the-moment pompadour. She’s able to lift her short cut because the crown is longer than the base.

Taylor didn’t look much different on the Red Carpet, but why should she? Her glam looks work well for any gala, and little changes make her hair seem brand new. The darker, curly hair she sported for COVERGIRL were replaced by white  blond, straight locks.

We were about to say Demi didn’t wear a new look, but then we realized she had gone from dip-dye purple to a bright blond ombre! Knowing Ms. Lovato she’ll be changing up her mane today or in the near future (with help from extensions, temp color, whatever).

That’s all we have time for now, but we’ll get back to the award-winning hairstyles ASAP!

Is Miley Cyrus addicted to Twitter? Or is it a phase to promote her new punk style?

It seems like Miley has been Tweeting 24/7 since she chopped off her hair, but she was bingeing during the month before the do-over. She used Twitter to provide “hints” of her impending hair cut. In mid July, Miley posted the photo below after going blond—not platinum, highlighted and natural-looking.

Wasn’t there a time when Miley gave up Twitter because she was tired of getting negative Tweets? Whatever the answer, her “habit” will probably last for a while…until she bottoms out on sharing “all things Miley” with the world of social media.

If you have the answers, please share them with us!

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

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

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.

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.

Miley Cyrus’ style: going straight from PG to R

Dear Miley,
We know it’s time for you to give up Hannah Montana, grow up and expand your career outside of the Disney Channel. But why did you have to go and choose Britney and Lindsey for your role models? #1 they aren’t pretty. #2 they don’t act grown up. #3 they aren’t talented. #4 you’re limiting your audience if you copy the LLO and Brit type pseudo-stars #5 Madonna’s lingerie fashions made sense, but you are no Madonna (and neither is Lady Gaga!). #6 why don’t you copy celebs who balance sexy with sophisticated? Jennifer Lopez’s hot looks are close to what you want, but she doesn’t go overboard (most of the time!). Natalie Portman has done what you are so desperately seeking–transitioning from girl to woman–BUT she did it in a subtle manner. When she plays risqué characters in the movies, you know it’s not the real Natalie…she’s just a great actress doing her job. When she’s not filming, Ms. Portman goes back to her classic casual coifs.

Miley, we have to apologize for dissing your poor taste. There are plenty of times when you are the picture of beauty and poise… like when you wore a sleek ponytail with a high crown and loose curls highlighted in bronde (the trendy blond-brunette color combo). These pix only go to show how soft-spoken style can be just as hot as pole-dancing ‘dos!

Of course, none of this matters. You are a grown woman (girl?) and you’ll do what you wanna do.

Good luck!

The wizardly world of Emma Watson’s hairstyle

Being Harry Potter’s BFF in six movies has paid off for Emma Watson. As if by magic, she has gone from girl to woman overnight. The secret lies in a dramatic mane change–from ultra-long locks to barely-there hair. The new Emma is being compared to young Twiggy, Mia Farrow and Audrey Hepburn (if you don’t know who they are, ask a baby-boomer!).  Only weeks ago, the ingenue was wearing her hair almost to the waist in a casual braid. Before that there were a variety of semi-longish looks (like casual waves below) which maintained the continuity in the HP films.

Unlike her peers, Emma wasn’t trying to attract attention with titillating style. She just wanted to cut her hair. It’s refreshing to hear why Emma took the plunge (especially when compared with spoiled starlets using Twitter to rant against f-ing judges, crazed fans, whatever). The popular actress premiered her do on Facebook with this friendly message: “Dear all. Cut my hair off a few days ago…Feels incredible. I love it. I’ve wanted to do this for years and years; it’s the most liberating thing ever. Hope you like. Big love from Emma x.” 

Having to keep her hair long for the Harry Potter movies made the makeover even more exciting for Emma: “The stylist just grabbed the back of my hair and took a whole ponytail of hair out.” New York stylist Rodney Cutler of Cutler Salon left just enough length to keep the hair feminine. That little difference is much more flattering for most women than the boyish crew cuts of Agyness Deyn, Natalie Maines and Janet Jackson. The pixie-ish look doesn’t even have to be styled, but it CAN be dressed up in minutes with gel or a few twists of a curling iron at the back of crown.

Keep watching Ms. Watson… she’s bound to be changing hairstyles more often, as she gets farther away from her Hermione and Harry Potter and closer to the more sophisticated characters she’s hoping to play.
