The 2019 Hot List


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.

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]

NAME: Kelly Vrooman

WHO IS SHE: Character actress/comedian, known currently for short online videos; earlier did voice work in The Chica Show and hosted The Sunny Side Up Show on Sprout TV

HER STYLE: Sidepart reaching a bit below the shoulders

WHY WE LIKE IT: A Hair Fan brought her to our attention because she marked "Great Hair Day" in mid-January and claimed on Instagram she won an award. We could find no corroborating evidence for the event or the award, but she seems to know how to keep the hair in line and good shape. She did it with bangs for years, so good control with the bangs grown out is even more impressive.

SUPER-HAIR? Her Instagram pictures show a windy day can push around her style. But it took a summer day at a beach to shove a wet strip diagonally across her face. So she's good, but not Super. Take-home lesson: if a comedian writes something about her hair, it might not always be the whole truth. [Posted 1.25.19]

NAME: Charlotte Hawkins

WHO IS SHE: Co-host of Good Morning Britain on ITV; announcer on Classic FM radio

HER STYLE: Shoulder-length, usually with a sidepart and varying amounts of wave

WHY WE LIKE IT: Adjustments in the wave can lead to a variety of looks. Whatever the look, she makes it effortless and natural, yet with strong hold. We're assuming she's a master of applying spray for control, from years of TV news experience. But if it's not sprayed into place, her hair strength is even more amazing than we imagined.

SUPER-HAIR? Even with that strength, we lean toward answering no. A red carpet picture on her website shows a drooping left side practically covering her left eye. But that appears to be a rarity - so we can understand why a Hair Fan suggested her for the Crown Awards. She was the "odd woman out" in a couple of competitive categories, but she's certainly worth a 6:00 a.m. wake-up call. [Photo courtesy Hello!; posted 1.11.19]
