NAME: Mikaela Hoover

WHO IS SHE: Actress in movies such as Guardians of the Galaxy; guest on TV series such as Happy Endings, 2 Broke Girls and the pilot Omega Models

HER STYLE: We were pointed to a picture which seems to be a few years old, with long layers, an off-center part and occasional added curl; current look is shoulder-length

WHY WE LIKE IT: The Hair Fan who recommended her said, “Hair looks silky and full with rich color.” But what strikes us most in this photo are her layers. The shortest looks feather-perfect around the eyes, perhaps given extra attention for hold. The longer layers are loose and playful-looking.

SUPER-HAIR? Sorry. We were directed to an IMDB photo collection with those great layers – but it also includes a picture where she pushes the hair into her right eye. If she needs extra money between movie roles, we suggest setting up a booth and offering Hair Fans pushing rights. [Posted 3/17/17]

NAME: Joanna Natasegara

WHO IS SHE: Movie producer based in London; Academy Award winner for the short-subject documentary The White Helmets

HER STYLE: Medium-long straight sidepart, tucked behind ears as she accepted the award

WHY WE LIKE IT: Her hair is sleek, yet she takes steps to make it look strong. Beyond the ears, the hair is long enough to stay securely behind a shoulder. She's used straight and sideswept bangs in the past, which arguably look even better on her.

SUPER-HAIR? We lean toward saying no, as she's had other red-carpet styles with strips of hair practically in her left eye. But we didn't want to overlook this Oscar-winner whose hair impressed us on stage. If our “best in show” ballot had six or seven names instead of five, she probably would have been there – which is saying something for someone normally behind the camera. [Posted 3/3/17]

NAME: Marci Gonzalez

WHO IS SHE: ABC News correspondent

HER STYLE: Slightly past shoulder-length, sideparted with teasing and curl at the ends

WHY WE LIKE IT: She's shown for years that she knows how to keep her hair under control when out in the elements. Combed-over teasing and spraying at the top helps with that, while the curls probably can guard against flyaways.

SUPER-HAIR? Sadly, no. The curls seemed to be lacking when she covered the Charleston, South Carolina church shootings, and a gust of wind blew hair into her face. But those moments seem to be rare, and there's a lot to like most of the time. [Posted 2/17/17]

NAME: Iris Mittenaere

WHO IS SHE: Dental student in Paris; newly-crowned Miss Universe 2016 (even though the pageant was early in 2017)

HER STYLE: Medium-long, parted slightly off-center; frequently straight with waves added for pageant nights

WHY WE LIKE IT: She appears to be careful with control at all times. A bit of teasing around the “crown” on the night she won allowed the hair to flex and have motion without cracking. And since she won the pageant crown, she's shown regular use of the ears and shoulders to keep straight hair out of danger.

SUPER-HAIR? She certainly knows how to turn up the volume of her hair for public occasions. It's evident on her personal Twitter feed. But you'll also find a few photos there where strands seems to linger in an eye – and one video from early December where a strip dangled down in front of children. So we sadly conclude her hair is superbe, but not quite super.[Posted 2/3/17]

NAME: Casey Burke

WHO IS SHE: Teenage singer/actress, currently playing a love interest on The Middle

HER STYLE: Long with a slight natural wave, carefully protected in her TV role by a hat that appears borrowed from the French Foreign Legion

WHY WE LIKE IT: Her hair on TV is perfect, attractive and seemingly well-calculated. The ear flap on the hat might fly up when the wind blows, yet the hair doesn't move. And that's the fun mystery about her. Imagine being “Brick,” the awkward young boyfriend. Wouldn't you want to know what happened if you reached for that hat? Would the hair have Super-Hold if fully exposed? This is how young Hair Fans get their start.

SUPER-HAIR? At the risk of revealing a spoiler, she does go hat-free off-camera. And from what we've seen, she can keep the hair in line even in active scenes. So yes, we consider her a rising hair star. Now c'mon Brick – go for it. What could happen?! [Posted 1/20/17]

NAME: Angela Morabito

WHO IS SHE: Executive with “Stand United” political petition site; writer for Red Alert Politics and the Outset Network

HER STYLE: Shoulder-length sidepart, with flips on the critical right side and at the tips

WHY WE LIKE IT: Professional-looking and often precisely-prepared. The picture on her Twitter feed shows she's not afraid to place her hair very close to her eyes, yet curl and spray keep it strong. She can use the ear for support if necessary, but that seems to happen rarely – and she might have well-hidden bangs; she's displayed them openly in recent years.

SUPER-HAIR? She passed every online check we did, so we think so. But she can be hard to track, because she makes political panel appearances on channels like RT (where we found her) on a haphazard basis. Yet someone who inspired a fake Twitter feed while she was in college at Georgetown must have something going well. [Posted 1/6/17]
