‘That’s My Boy’ Horrible Movie, Great Hairstyles: Leighton Meester, Ciara, Eva Amurri, Rebecca Marshall, Crystal Allen, Abigail Klein & Carrie Wiita

We’re bringing the ‘dos to you, so you don’t have to go to them!

There are more women than you would expect in a movie about boys, and they wear good hairstyles that would work for real women. Before we get to the hairstyles, give us a moment to rant: That’s My Boy earned zero stars from one leading film critic. The buzz ranges from negative to more negative with reviewers saying Sandler has outdone himself in raunchiness! The photo at the bottom of this post depicts the over-grown boy in a hot tub with seven women, which isn’t necessarily bad, but Sandler makes it so.

Poor Leighton Meester plays the lead among a group of female characters who are doomed from the start. Judging from her photo at the movie’s premiere, it looks like Leighton survived beautifully. Loose curls, side bangs and realistic hair color add up to a style that’s pretty practical for women who have medium- to long-length hair.

Moving onto the other pawns, there’s Ciara in a classic coif with a new twist– a single braid peeking out from luscious waves. Contrasting black and blond color isn’t for everyone, but Ciara knows how to work it!

Eva Amurri Martino plays it cool by wearing an updo. You can tell the hair has been blow-dried first because it’s full and lifted in front. Meanwhile Crystal Allen always keeps her cool in a short style that takes little maintenance because the shape is built into the cut–graduated from short on bottom to longer on top.  For extra oomph, the shorty can be blow-dried with a round brush. If you have long bangs, let them fall forward, naturally!

Abigail Klein & Carrie Wiita like to wear their long hair curly, but they do it different ways: Abby wears them loose, Carrie goes with spirals. To get A.K.’s look, blow-dry hair with a round brush held vertically. Follow with a quick set using a large-barreled curling iron. As you can imagine, C.W.’s curls take more time and attention. You can start like Abigail, but more important is styling with a medium-size curling iron. Use small sections of hair and alternate the direction, going forward on one curl, back on the next. We suggest getting the look done at a salon first and watching carefully while it is being done.

From the front, Rebecca Marshall seems to be wearing a normal bun, but the side view reveals something more–a curly ponytail, lifted crown and a better view of the ringlets in front.

There’s more we could talk about, but we’re getting sick of thinking about the man who turns a long-lost son story into a tragcom. So goodbye, Adam, and good riddance!

Pretty Straight Celebrity Hairstyles: Emma Watson, Christina Ricci, Jennifer Aniston, Eva Amurri & Julia Jones

Easy ways to tress up straight hair!

Straight hair is always better with a little bit of TLC as the stars give their manes when they come out at night…like they did at the MTV Movie Awards.

Fans of Emma Watson from her Harry Potter days are glad to see she’s growing out the very short-short cut that she got after her long run as Hermione in Harry’s Wizardly World. The post-Hermione look was called a pixie but it came close to being a buzzed hairstyle. We thought Em looking like Aubrey Hepburn was darling, but her Hermione admirers were shocked (and disappointed). Moving out of the precise short has given Emma more versatility and the chance to tousle her tresses because every hair doesn’t have to be in place. Golden highlights are heavier around the face drawing attention to the model/actress’s glowing personality. The style can be worn as is, but it looks best when blow-dried with a round brush after applying a volumizing product on damp hair.

Eva Amurri Martino is in Adam Sandler‘s That’s My Boy (just released today). We know her better as Hank’s student/stripper from Californication. and as Susan Sarandon’s daughter. Eva’s take on straight hair is interesting with a touch of wave and curl thrown in for contrast. Long layers and ombré highlights provide body and hold after styling with a blow dryer and a curling iron (used sporadically on the ends).

Christina Ricci, who was in TV’s very short-lived Pan Am, chooses the easiest route for straight hair–short. The movie/TV star has the guts and good looks to wear a ‘do that shows off her face (and high forehead). Styling is straight-forward: simply apply gel and comb into place. Experiment with blow-drying or a flat-iron to achieve a smoother finish.

Twilight’s Julia Jones wears a bob, the tried-and-true style for straight hair. Instead of being ruler-straight, the ends are notched (or texturized as a hairstylist would say). Like Christina, Julia can carry off a dramatic ‘do that’s made that way with a center part.

How-to secrets for Julia’s hair work well for adding volume to any straight hairstyle. When hairstylist Cervando Maldonado worked with Ms. Jones, his first goal was to calm frizz. According to usmagazine.com, he applied Rose Veil Oil evenly through damp hair. After blow-drying the bob with a round brush, he made pin curls and left them in for 10 minutes. He added a bit of wave using a curling iron, but you could just gently brush out hair after the set.

Jennifer Aniston wears one of her trademark styles–long, straight and angled in front. Jen is famous for starting the “Rachel” trend from Friends (mid-length, heavily layered, very highlighted and highly stylized). She’s stated time and time again how much happier she is with her casual coif that’s become a modern classic. You can imagine how the look can be recreated: simply blow-dry hair over a large round brush. If you want (or need) more polish, use a flat-iron or jumbo-sized curling iron.
