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: Allison Stokke

WHO IS SHE: Pole vaulter and fitness model; fiancee of golfer Rickie Fowler

HER STYLE: Medium-long and straight, parted a bit off-center

WHY WE LIKE IT: She unties her hair away from the track, and impresses when she does. This Instagram photo from The Tour Championship shows a nicely-polished style, with a very rare use of her ear for control. Put a golf hat on her head (check pictures from the Masters), and the long thickness with a touch of wave really shows. She has a history of concern about stalkers, so we suspect people guard that hat carefully.

SUPER-HAIR? Her name was suggested in comments during our annual "Who's Number One" Week. After checking lots of pictures, we understand why - but there's one famous photo from a meet where a strip of hair goes right down her nose. It probably didn't "vault" down there. So we lean toward saying no, but you'll hopefully understand if we watch PGA galleries more than the golfers. [Posted 9.6.19]

NAME: Clare McConnell

WHO IS SHE: Performer with Canada's Second City troupe; actress in Season 12 of Murdoch Mysteries and Star Trek: Discovery

HER STYLE: Mid-length, off-center, plenty of wave which could be loose or tightly curled

WHY WE LIKE IT: A Hair Fan told us she has "gorgeous thick curls and body." That visitor included a two-year-old red-carpet photo with rather wild waves. But she tames them well when the moment calls for it; our photo from a tour stop shows combing back is essential for success. And body? Look for photos from the 1890s-era mystery series, where the hair is piled well above her head.

SUPER-HAIR? The Hair Fan's picture left us doubtful. A windblown pose on Twitter, barely off her right eye, did not help. But we found nothing with a complete collapese. So she officially gets a "yes," but with a comedic smirk. [Posted 8.23.19]

NAME: Katherine Ryan

WHO IS SHE: Stand-up comic and panelist, based in Britain; posted while featured in "Glitter Room" on Netflix

HER STYLE: Normally long and wavy; she seems to prefer center parts, but can adjust

WHY WE LIKE IT: She clearly tries hard to keep her hair in line, and uses a lot of tools to do it. The waves really matter, providing plenty of weight and helping to keep hair behind the shoulders. She pulls sections behind her ears only as a last resort.

SUPER-HAIR? Her website has a "sizzle reel" which answers that. A steamy dance routine on office desks in 2016 (discretion advised) shows her hair straight, and bouncing into her eyes more than once. So when this funny woman is serious about hold, we say yes - but when she's not, she's not. [Posted 8.9.19]

NAME: Julie Nesrallah

WHO IS SHE: Operatic mezzo-soprano; host of Tempo classical radio program on Canada's CBC Music

HER STYLE: Shoulder to mid-length natural curls, parted a bit off-center

WHY WE LIKE IT: She's not from Texas, but these are Texas-sized curls - big, natural and seemingly playful. And to make things better, she hardly ever pins this hair down. Well-hidden bangs can come out and cover the forehead when wind becomes an issue.

SUPER-HAIR? If you think the inevitable answer is no, you're correct. An Ottawa Citizen photo from 2010 showed bangs a bit too long, curling into her left eye while the right side is pinched in to practically cover tht eye as well. But that doesn't seem to happen often. So if she comes to your town to perform, she's worth the price of admission - even if you can't understand a word she sings. [Posted 7.26.19]

NAME: Allison Winn Scotch

WHO IS SHE: Author of several best-selling novels; freelance magazine writer

HER STYLE: Medium-long and straight, off-center parted at an intriguing angle

WHY WE LIKE IT: "Soft looking and full," a Hair Fan told us by email. It apparently stays out of her left eye through round-brushing and some light spray, and stays invitingly close to danger. She uses the ears for security sparingly.

SUPER-HAIR? The answer is hiding in a 2010 interview on YouTube. As she casually explains nine things you don't know about her, a strand or two casually drops into her left eye for a moment. But we don't post authors with great hair very often here, so thank you for this "novel" idea. [Posted 7.12.19]

NAME: Wendie Renard

WHO IS SHE: Defender on the France Women's World Cup soccer team and Olympique Lyon

HER STYLE: Extreme neck-length teased comb-back; apparently straightened and cut for the cup because the FIFA team profile suggests tied-back curls

WHY WE LIKE IT: In a word: hold. Awesome hold. Enduring hold, even through 90-minute plus matches. Hold with no sign of pins, headbands or tiedowns. How she does it, we have no clue. (Maybe tons of spray? A permanent wave?) On most other women, a style like this would at least drop toward their faces by halftime. Hers simply refuses.

SUPER-HAIR? We didn't see the U.S.-France quarterfinal, but it barely became dissheveled duting the "round of 16" extra-time win over Brazil. So we say "oui" to this French star. While others have praised perfect ponies in Paris and other places, we salute a hairstyle that's as tough as the athlete wearing it - and maybe a little tougher.

NAME: Julia Macfarlane

WHO IS SHE: ABC News (U.S.) correspondent, formerly with BBC

HER STYLE: Shoulder-length combed-over sidepart

WHY WE LIKE IT: An impressed Hair Fan tells us her hair "looks thick, healthy and shiny." For the marvelous look we were provided, we suspect she relies a good bit on spray to keep it in place. At other times, a tuck-back with the ears comes into use.

SUPER-HAIR? Her Twitter profile picture hints at trouble, because a couple of strands are down on her forehead. An Instagram picture from a vacation in Bali settled it for us, as we think the breeze blew some strands across her left eye. So our answer is no, but we thank you for the suggestion - and considering she was born in Indonesia, the Super-Hair World Cup champion may have some competition. [Posted 6.14.19]

NAME: Christina Stembel

WHO IS SHE: Founder, CEO and "Chief Farmgirl" of Farmgirl Flowers, based in San Francisco

HER STYLE: Long with a natural slight wave, parted close to center

WHY WE LIKE IT: We saw her in a Capital One commercial and were impressed right away. Hair close to the eyes was flipped into rolls of curls. They apparently weakened in her warehouse during the filming. But like the flowers she sells, she refused to let them droop down to ugly disaster.

SUPER-HAIR? We found one wind-blown picture on Twitter with hair all around her face, yet somehow not in her eyes. But all the other pictures looked great. So we'll say she has it, until we're proven wrong - and as she probably knows, one windy day on a farm can change everything. [Posted 5.31.19]
