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:Dr. Rochelle Walensky

WHO IS SHE: Current Director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control; former Harvard professor and executive with Massachusetts General Hospital

HER STYLE: Neck-length sidepart with long "bangs" on her right side

WHY WE LIKE IT: We put bangs in quotes, because they provide the drama here. An image search shows they're sometimes short enough to stop above her right eye. But at other times, they seem almost long enough to tuck behind her ear. It all depends on when she trims them; at the long end of the period, we suspect she uses a flp curl and spray to keep them from collapsing.

SUPER-HAIR? A presumptive no, we say - "presumptive" because the long right side has drooped on-camera several times, practically falling in her eye if not actually doing so. On-time trims made Dorothy Hamill's wedge an amazing Super-Hair legend. But if this doctor gets too busy fighting COVID-19.... well, we understand why that would take top priority. But quick trips to a salon would keep her style precise, while keeping Hair Fans' attention. [Posted 3.5.21]

NAME:Stacey Plaskett

WHO IS SHE: Virgin Islands' elected representative in U.S. House (she calls herself a "Congresswoman"; others say "Delegate" is more accurate)

HER STYLE: She has a wide range, but we're honoring the neck-length curled look she displayed as part of the prosecution team in "Trump Trial II" after his impeachment

WHY WE LIKE IT: She pulled off a perfect style by pulling back her hair with teasing, then likely using a good deal of spray. Turning up the curl brought the overall style forward - but when she made stern points, the hair barely budged.

SUPER-HAIR? We're saying yes. She's had a close call or two with other styles. But we think this one is a winning look, even if her side didn't win a conviction in the U.S. Senate. Maybe her "breakout moment" will inspire Hair Fans to check for more on the beaches of St. Croix. [Posted 2.19.21]

NAME: Alexa Knierim

WHO IS SHE: Part of U.S. champion figure skating team with Brandon Frazier; Olympic bronze medalist in 2018

HER STYLE: Mid-length, parted a bit off-center; at its best with waves

WHY WE LIKE IT: Her curled ponytail was the most thrilling style we saw in competition at the 2021 U.S. Nationals. She was tossed in the air a couple of times with her body spinning, and we wanted to stop the video at every turn to see how the curls handled it. They did very well, with no sign of weakening during a four-minute program. Her Twitter feed indicates her unpinned styles stand up well off the ice as well.

SUPER-HAIR? We haven't found much with her hair unpinned, but from our viewing it is. Her recent history includes a serious health crisis, and she's come back well from the top down. After years of ultra-tight styles, figure skaters finally are loosening their performance hair a bit - and we hope she continues to set a strong example. [Posted 2.5.21]

NAME: Katie Amess

WHO IS SHE: Actress in movies such as Fifth of July and videos promoting LinkedIn; daughter of a long-time British Parliament member

HER STYLE: Medium-long sidepart; frequently straght and round-brushed

WHY WE LIKE IT: A Hair Fan wrote about her: "Great color, body, and looks natural, not stiff." While we haven't seen her much, we imagine a bit of roundedness provides her with a bouncy style when she wants it. When she occasionally adds waves, that's even better.

SUPER-HAIR? "Natural" sometimes can be trouble - and it is with her. Several photos on her Twtter feed show her hair in her eyes. So when it comes to style, her last name sometimes is sadly prophetic. [Posted 1.22.21]

NAME: Rebbeca "Becky G" Gomez

WHO IS SHE: "Latin pop singer" and actress, according to her website

HER STYLE: Long sidepart, at its best with added waves

WHY WE LIKE IT: She placed second in our poll for best hair at 2020 American Music Awards, and was our best discovery of the show. The style was glamorous, yet rested close to her right eye - but she cared enough not to do anything to disrupt it. That seems to be her habit with other styles and musical events as well.

SUPER-HAIR? At musical events, maybe. In photo shoots, sadly, no. An image search will bring you several settings where she posed with her hair in one eye. But "B-plus" hair from this "G" isn't bad at all. And she leaves us asking a tantalizing question: if this Gomez faced Selena Gomez in a Super-Hair War, who would win - and why? [Posted 1.8.21]

NAME: Lauren Molina

WHO IS SHE: Actress in New York stage shows such as Sweeney Todd and You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown; half of musical-comedy team The Skivvies

HER STYLE: Shoulder-length natural curls

WHY WE LIKE IT: "Nice bouncy looking curls," is how a Hair Fan described them. We think that's her best look, but she knows how to extend and stretch them to fit a role and a moment. Whatever she does with them, she knows how to position them well to stay away from her face - even straightening sections to tuck behind her ears if needed.

SUPER-HAIR? She had us ready to head for Manhattan and start hanging around stage doors. But deep in an image search, there's a quasi-romantic pose where she leans back and a roll of curl falls in her right eye. So we must say no - but that's the moment on stage we'd want to watch. Curl control is not always easy, yet she seems to take the drama out of it. [Posted 12.25.20]

NAME: Dr. Lindsay Weaver

WHO IS SHE: Chief Medical Officer with Indiana State Department of Health (not to be confused with the pro golfer)

HER STYLE: Long and center-parted with plenty of waves

WHY WE LIKE IT: When this woman appeared at a December COVID-19 briefing, we were astounded. This is a doctor near the "frontline" of the pandemic, yet this is a style that looks more prepared for a fashion runway than a basement bunker. The turns of hair around her cheeks likely are essential in keeping away from her face and in place.

SUPER-HAIR? She's had a few days where the waves broke down and she looked more like a busy working mother of five (which she is). But of all things, it took a virtual dance contest (she appears at the end) to bring down this style with a bit too much bounce into an eye. Awwwww - that's too bad for her. Because in this year of "quarantine cuts," she's proof that health care workers still can have healthy and impressive hair. [Posted 12.11.20]
