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 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]

NAME: Sabrina Texidor

WHO IS SHE: Actress who won an ABC 2017 digital talent contest; appearing in the upcoming TV series Grand Hotel

HER STYLE: Medium-long center-part with varying amounts of wave (she added the Snapchat hearts)

WHY WE LIKE IT: A Hair Fan praises her for "very nice body and thickness, rich color." She probably needs some spray to keep the hair out of her face. But that's OK, because she doesn't seem to use much. It's a soft look, that dares you to test how strong it really is.

SUPER-HAIR? Officially, we're saying yes - but if we watched her over a long period, we fear the real answer would be no. She posted a couple of extremely close calls when she joined Instagram, leaving us to think a breezy day could put her in trouble. We suspect she'd invite us to watch her new series to find out.

NAME: Brittany Pettersen

WHO IS SHE: Colorado State Senator; former state Representative

HER STYLE: Medium-long sidepart (longer than our vidcap shows), with wave at the ends that she can adjust; occasionally with added bangs

WHY WE LIKE IT: She seems to be serious about not only issues, but hair control. She turns up the wave for major occasions, such as this interview with NBC. She wears glasses at times, which work as a warning and a block of strands getting too close to her face. Her hair seems to go behind the ear for safety as a last resort.

SUPER-HAIR? If "anti-" websites don't post ugly hair pictures, that's a good sign for her. But when NBC interviewed her and four "best friends" in the legislature, she posed with her left side bending down and almost covering an eye. It's close, but we think the style was defeated - which is more than Republican candidates have done so far. [Posted 5.3.19]

NAME: Dr. Katie Bouman

WHO IS SHE: Computer scientist on team that recorded the first known picture of a "black hole" in space; in line to become assistant professor at Cal Tech

HER STYLE: Shoulder to armpit-length sidepart with light natural wave

WHY WE LIKE IT: There's plenty of plush thickness here, and she's not afraid to bring it in front of the shoulders and on full display. She uses the left ear for control when necessary - and sometimes she shows an "inside-out" tuckback (look up her TED talk) which is high-risk, yet holds fabulously.

SUPER-HAIR? We found nothing to disqualify her, so we'll say yes. If she's brilliant enough to develop an algorithm for compiling astronomical data, she also can be intelligent enough to develop a long-lasting hairstyle that looks great. Hair Fans who dream of outsmarting her to bring it down probably will find they can't outsmart her in the slightest. Brains and beauty don't get much better than this. [Posted 4.19.19]

NAME: Whitton Frank

WHO IS SHE: Actress, model, producer and writer, perhaps best known for the 2016 series Murder in the First

HER STYLE: Shoulder-length or longer sidepart with natural curls

WHY WE LIKE IT: A Hair Fan was impressed by her "gorgeous red curls." While she occasionally straightens them, the curls are thin and tight. if they're unwrapped, that means they're subtle. But we think they're at their best when fully wrapped, because we'd want to work through them - and it probably would take a delightfully long time.

SUPER-HAIR? To be, well, frank, no. Check the modeling pictures of her own website, and the proof should be on page one. The hair appeared combed across her right eye. That's another reason why wrapped curls are better, if you want strong hold. Debra Messing remains our gold standard of red curly success. [Posted 4.5.19]
