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: 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]

NAME: Claudia Doumit

WHO IS SHE: Actress last seen in the U.S. TV drama Timeless

HER STYLE: Medium-long or longer, parted a bit off-center; normally slightly wavy

WHY WE LIKE IT: "Hair looks very soft. Great body," a Hair Fan told us. It's also apparently strong as well; our vidcap comes from an interview where a fellow actor came from behind and surprised her, yet her hair hardly moved through it all.

SUPER-HAIR? We found nothing to hurt her in photo searches. So we'll say yes. But we admit we never saw her series, which had its finale nearly a year ago. If it held through a lot of "period pieces" in U.S. history, that would be timeless Super-Hair indeed. [Posted 3.22.19]

NAME: Jaime Ray Newman

WHO IS SHE: Actress appearing in the Netflix series The Punisher; co-producer of 2018 Academy Award-winning Best Live Action Short, Skin

HER STYLE: Her Oscar-winning look was a medium-long sidepart, with waves combed into three sections from top to bottom

WHY WE LIKE IT: She was a strong second in our poll for the best style of "Oscar Night" because her long hair was soft, thick and loose. That made her stand out from other women who preferred tied-down looks. And since her background is as a TV actress (once appearing on General Hospital), she has years of knowledge in how to make her hair look great for public occasions - even using bangs at times to do it.

SUPER-HAIR? She nearly won a yes vote from us, too. But far down in an image search, we found a photo where a strip of hair droops in her right eye on a red carpet. But she apparently was much younger. Her hair has strengthened with age, and that's no Skin off our back. [Posted 3.8.19]

NAME: Adele McClure

WHO IS SHE: Former policy director for embattled Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax; public speaker and advocate for homeless people

HER STYLE: Long near-center part with a hint of wave

WHY WE LIKE IT: Her official photo (which we're using) shows a good bit of thickness and an emphasis on control. Her right side is tucked far back, while the left side leaves us wondering: pinned or (we hope) not? Yet other photos on her Twitter feed suggest she's more likely to display natural combed-back thick curls.

SUPER-HAIR? Officially, we'll say yes. We have no evidence of a drop. But if we could see her hair more often, we fear the answer would be no. Her own social media posts hint at close calls in the last couple of years. We won't take sides in the Fairfax fight, but we're rooting for this woman and her hair to appear more in public. [Posted 2.22.19]

NAME: Liana Brackett

WHO IS SHE: Weather Channel meteorologist; Mrs. Georgia America 2018

HER STYLE: She's had several, but as we post her she's showing a straight lob with bangs across the forehead

WHY WE LIKE IT: "Awesome bangs!" proclaimed a Hair Fan on Twitter. We were pointed to a Groundhog Day tweet (oh, the irony) where they flex and bounce around a bit. The overall style does that as well - and does it very well, with hair coming close to the eyes without falling in them. That's what well-cut bangs prevent.

SUPER-HAIR? With her current look, yes - but she apparently hasn't had it long, to provide a good test. But her old look was a sidepart with no bangs and a big combover. Online pictures indicate that could have dropped in her eye on camera a few times. She certainly had very close calls. So our overall answer is a benefit-of-the-doubt yes. For this TV channel, she's very good - but not quite Kelly Cass-level Super. [Posted 2.8.19]
