Angie Glotzbach, Louisville City League Champion
Television reporters may not like this comparison, but they have some things in common with actors. They want to make a good presentation before the public - not only in what they say, but how they look. Some people know this well, as they've been involved in both fields.
ANGIE GLOTZBACH has worked in TV and theater productions, in New York and other cities. These days she's a weekend weathercaster in Louisville, Kentucky -- and her short style impressed voters well enough that she dominated our Louisville City League tournament. Angie found out about her triumph while "self-surfing" online one day. That led to an interview through an e-mail question exchange, which revealed she's changed her look to what you see above from what we originally posted:
SUPER-HAIR: How would you describe your current style?
ANGIE GLOTZBACH: I have straight, shoulder-length hair with long layers that I part to one side and pull back behind the ear on the other side.
S-H: The picture we posted in our City League section [originally, at left] was from WAVE's web site. Is that your current look?
AG: No, my hair is quite a bit longer....
S-H: How long have you had your hair in this style?
AG: I had the style on the web page for about a year until I decided to go a little longer. I like to have an up-do when necessary.
S-H: What do you like about it? (Is there anything you dislike about it?)
AG: I have naturally curly hair, so I have to straighten it every day. It's time consuming, but I like the result. The grass is always greener!
S-H: We noticed your acting credits included an appearance on Sex and the City. Did you meet any of the top stars of that show -- and who would you say had the best hair on that show?
AG: I did meet the 3 principles, I'd have to say Sara Jessica Parker had the best hair. The stylist for the show had the freedom to do so many different looks for Sara. She also battles with naturally curly hair so she has a special place in my heart.
S-H: You've worked in a television comedy, theatre, and now local TV. Is there any difference between preparing hair for those areas?
AG: Yes, for theatre I usually wore a wig depending on the character. When I did wear my own hair it had to fit the period/genre of the piece. For the New York television roles I wore my hair however I wanted, I just made sure it was flattering to my face. For local television I have to be careful to keep a smoother look. Fly-aways don't do well over the chroma-key (graphics) wall while doing the weather. If you have too many pieces sticking out they could get cut off and give you a strange look. I use much more hairspray on local TV.
S-H: Do you use any specific treatments to keep your hair in place? (Spray, gel, curl, etc.) What would be your routine in getting ready for television?
AG: I start with hair smoothing shampoo and conditioner, which I follow up with leave-in conditioner spray. Then I use spray gel and blow-dry. Using heat protection spray, I straighten my hair with a straightening iron, followed by a control paste and hair spray. Wow, I didn't realize how many hair products I use!
S-H: When was the last time your hair fell into your eyes in public? How did it happen?
AG: I was playing the role of Arial on the Disney Cruise Line and I had to wear a long, red wig. I came onto the stage on a lift from below. As the lift was rising the wig fell off. I had to throw it back on just as I was visible to the audience. It covered my head, but it looked terrible. I performed the number and got back to the dressing room and saw that my bangs were on the side of my head. That's live theater for you.
S-H: What advice would you give someone who wanted to develop Super-Hair?
AG: Get a great stylist to give you a super cut. Then protect your hair from heat damage caused by blow-dryers and irons. Always follow-up with a control paste or balm.
S-H: Who would you consider to have the best head of hair you've ever seen?
AG: I love Ashley Judd's hair. With a face like hers she could do anything with her hair and look great. She always looks classy.
SUMMARY: To change a natural look, yet keep a looking natural result, can't be easy. With her cans of spray in hand, Angie seems able to do it well. We've asked Angie for an updated picture of her style, and we'll post it here when we get it. We don't doubt it's a "super cut," like she describes -- and she's a great example of how Super-Hair can get attention and success.
