Hair That's Hot!!!!


This section examines the best celebrity styles Hair Fans have seen lately - posted here even before they hit the Top Ten or enter a Super-Hair War. We update our Hot List regularly, as new styles and women come our way!

NAME: Charlotte Hawkins

WHO IS SHE: Co-host of Good Morning Britain on ITV; announcer on Classic FM radio

HER STYLE: Shoulder-length, usually with a sidepart and varying amounts of wave

WHY WE LIKE IT: Adjustments in the wave can lead to a variety of looks. Whatever the look, she makes it effortless and natural, yet with strong hold. We're assuming she's a master of applying spray for control, from years of TV news experience. But if it's not sprayed into place, her hair strength is even more amazing than we imagined.

SUPER-HAIR? Even with that strength, we lean toward answering no. A red carpet picture on her website shows a drooping left side practically covering her left eye. But that appears to be a rarity - so we can understand why a Hair Fan suggested her for the Crown Awards. She was the "odd woman out" in a couple of competitive categories, but she's certainly worth a 6:00 a.m. wake-up call. [Photo courtesy Hello!; posted 1.11.19]

NAME: Nikki Haley

WHO IS SHE: Outgoing U.S. Ambassador to United Nations; former South Carolina Governor; 2012 Crown Award nominee

HER STYLE: Sidepart that's usually straight, nearly mid-length and often tucked behind her left ear

WHY WE LIKE IT: "Her bang is always strong," a Hair Fan wrote us. That person suspects she uses a lot of hairspray on her bangs for control, sometimes even sticking across her forehead. Whatever she does, it's worked on many occasions for many years - and the rest of her hair never seems in any danger of moving wildly, much less mussing.

SUPER-HAIR? The Hair Fan who suggested her considers her Top Ten Tresses material. We used to think so, too - but now we know better. The humidity of South Carolina and the coastal breeze have dropped her style in her left eye a few times, but not often. Her approach to hair may borrow from her autobiography, Can't is Not an Option, but that doesn't mean it won't. [Posted 12.27.18]

NAME: Darsha Philips

WHO IS SHE: TV news reporter in Los Angeles, currently changing stations after having a baby

HER STYLE: Medium-long near center-part, with a bit of wave

WHY WE LIKE IT: Everything about this picture from "" says "Super-woman" to us. A studio fan may be blowing the hair back. But she looks like she could throw the hair back behind the shoulders in tough situations. She seems to use the ears for control only in tight spots.

SUPER-HAIR? We don't monitor California newscasts, so we may not be fully informed. But she passed an image search test very well. On Instagram, a Wonder Woman post put her hair dramatically close to defeat. But if she fights to the finish for her style and wins, she has our support. May she come back from maternity leave and back in the TV battle soon. [Posted 12.14.18]

NAME: Carly Pearce

WHO IS SHE: Country music singer

HER STYLE: Medium-long and wavy, parted practically down the middle

WHY WE LIKE IT: We saw her for the first time at the CMA Awards, and watched in amazement. Her hair was full, fantastic.... and not moving a muscle! She's revealed Oribe hairspray is her secret to keeping the waves in perfect position, adding it "never fails." So she wants full hair confidence, and she's getting it. What's not hot about that?

SUPER-HAIR? Her perfection was seriously shaken when she sang at the Macy*s Thanksgiving Day parade. Even though she wore earmuffs, a gust of Manhattan wind shoved the long hair into her face for a moment. So no, it's not quite super. But we also say no to the skeptics who say she wears extensions. This woman could be the one to succeed Carrie Underwood as country music's most sensational style. [Posted 11.30.18]

NAME: Mai Murakami

WHO IS SHE: Japanese gymnast; winner of silver and bronze medals at the 2018 world championships; 2017 floor exercise champion

HER STYLE: Tightly-cut short sidepart with graduated bangs on her left side

WHY WE LIKE IT: This "cap" reminds us of the perfect short cuts of champion gymnasts Mary Lou Retton and Kerri Strug - only the layering makes it better. If you saw the 2018 Worlds in Qatar, you know why. The hair flies out when she's in fast motion, and looks like the left side could drop. It's cut so well that we don't think it's possible - but we want to get as close as we can, to see if we're wrong.

SUPER-HAIR? From what we've seen, it is. The worst thing that seems to happen in competitions is for bangs to fill her forehead. With this latest style.... oh, the drama. This was stunning and wonderful to see, in an age where pinned-up styles dominate. Now will Simone Biles agree to take her on, one-on-one? [Photo courtesy Gulf Times; posted 11.16.18]

NAME: Shery Ahn

WHO IS SHE: Bloomberg News anchor, formerly based in Hong Kong

HER STYLE: Mid-length sidepart with added waves or curls

WHY WE LIKE IT: This is potentially the best of both worlds - a hairstyle that looks natural and soft, but probably has been locked in with spray for hard hold for the set. She also seems to have added flipped bangs recently, as if to increase the risk of her hair collapsing - except in a studio, that's not going to happen.

SUPER-HAIR? Despite a picture of an extremely close moment on Instagram, we're saying yes. Growing her hair out from a bob was a great move for her, giving the style more room to manuever while looking more inviting. So keep calm and Shery Ahn.... if Hair Fans can. [Posted 11.2.18]

NAME: Sarah Stiles

WHO IS SHE: Actress in Broadway productions and Internet, appearing in musicals such as the upcoming Tootsie and web series such as Get Shorty

HER STYLE: Sidepart stopping a bit below the shoulder; normally loaded with wavy curls

WHY WE LIKE IT: "Great body and thickness," a visitor told us by email; "dark, rich color whether straight or curly." She's not afraid to put it all on display, as she seldom ties things down. The risk is high here, and we think a lot of Hair Fans would take a chance on touching Stiles's style.

SUPER-HAIR? The answer was as easy as her Twitter account: no. As we posted this, her cover picture had a strip of curl flopped down right across her left eye. Scroll down in her photo collection, and you'll see a moment where she rapidly shakes her head (and those curls) back and forth. It may be messy, but she won't drive many Hair Fans away with moves like that. [Posted 10.19.18]
