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: Imaan Hammam

WHO IS SHE: "Supermodel" (as declared by Vanity Fair) from the Netherlands; Egyptian-Moroccan heritage

HER STYLE: She displays many in photo shoots, but we were drawn to her shoulder-length full natural curl

WHY WE LIKE IT: We don't think she uses a lot of product to produce a thick style like this. It apppears she teases around the forehead to keep the hair off her eyes; then she might spray it a bit. The result is a look that many curl-lovers would want to pursue down the runway with their hands outstretched.

SUPER-HAIR? Many supermodels have made a case for it through the years. In this case - awfully close, but not quite. Her social media accounts show a few cases where she posed with the hair into her eyes a fraction too much (not always with full curls). But she's a wonderful argument for fashion houses to let models put their curls on full display - and as a Muslim model, she's a compelling argument against hijabs. [Posted 9.22.23]

NAME: Christina Ricucci (not to be confused with Christina Ricci)

WHO IS SHE: From her online profile: "Internatiuonal dance champion," actress in the short film Chemistry, singer

HER STYLE: Medium-long with natural waves; she seems to adjust the part for the situation

WHY WE LIKE IT: A Hair Fan told us she has "great body, wave and shine". She's not afraid to let it hang loosely, inviting people to come for it. But she'll use the ears for control when the moment requires it.

SUPER-HAIR? Lovely to look at, but not a lot of hold. Her personal website and Instagram account show photos of a few strands flying across her face. Not many, but too many for our standards. Yet if she wants to do a ballet dance with her hair unpinned, we'll certainly want to watch. [Posted 9.8.23]

NAME: Zinnia Maldonado

WHO IS SHE: TV news reporter in New York; formerly in Boston and Hartford, Connecticut

HER STYLE: Medium-long, parted off-center with apparently added curls and waves

WHY WE LIKE IT: This vidcap shows the perfect degree of thickness for a style like this, and that's what attracted us to her. She apparently straightened and shortened the style in other places, which made it look thinner. But when she lets it loose in live reports before dawn like our vidcap - especially with some wave - many Hair Fans will not need coffee to widen their eyes.

SUPER-HAIR? She uses her ears for protecton when need be, but otherwise it seems thick enough to hold strongly. We lean toward saying yes - and wonder what's the best way to catch some "Z" at 5:30 in the morning.[Posted 8.25.23]

NAME: Lina Hurtig

WHO IS SHE: Soccer/football player with Swedish national team and Arsenal in English "Super League"; scorer of winning penalty in Sweden-USA Women's World Cup playoff match

HER STYLE: Sidepart that's hyper-short on her left and longer on the right, but not too long

WHY WE LIKE IT: The difference between this short look and Megan Rapinoe's is that while Rapinoe uses color to grab attention, this woman uses length and motion. In most of her photos, it's not noticeable...

...But this vidcap from her winning kick does. The right side is flared a bit - we'd guess with an iron and spray, as there's no place for pins here at all. We're left wondering if the hair might fall in her eyes if completely unfolded. But she clearly takes care to prevent that.

SUPER-HAIR? It might have fallen during her younger years in the Swedish league, when it was longer. But with this current style, we think she has it. It all depends on how often she trims the hair. Can we please risk a yellow card to find out how strong it is? [Vidcap courtesy YouTube/Fox Soccer; Posted 8.11.23]

NAME: Marissa Sheva

WHO IS SHE: Soccer/football player with Irish national team and NWSL Washington Spirit

HER STYLE: Long and usually center-parted and straight

WHY WE LIKE IT: With the look above, it's no-nonsense and probably little extra preparation. The ears and shoulders are used to keep things in line. But it actually was another look that attracted us to her...

...this one, on the pitch in her opening Women's World Cup match against Australia. All her hair created a very thick ponytail with no noticeable flyaways. That made her style "best on ground" to us in that match, and she's not afraid to play around with it for the cameras.

SUPER-HAIR? We were leaning in that direction, until we checked her Instagram feed. A pose wearing a Philadelphia 76'ers top shows a little hair leaning into her left eye. But on good days, we think her locks could match some top models - and at least she's the Queen of Shevas. [Posted 7.28.23]

NAME: Maya Penn

WHO IS SHE: Fashion designer/ entrepreneur/cartoon creator and "environmental activist" based in Atlanta

HER STYLE: Wide natural curls with a deep sidepart, stopping around the shoulders

WHY WE LIKE IT: When she wears pins (perhaps not that often), she does NOT pin the side that you'd expect most women to do. The "vulnerable" side is out there, daring any breeze to come at it. Teasing at the crown seems to be her key to control, along with hidden bangs which come out at critical moments. An occasional head-shake doesn't seem to dislodge a thing.

SUPER-HAIR? She's had some scenes at the absolute brink, but we've found nothing to confirm a drop. Curls like hers can be very strong and firm with the right preparation. She impressively knows what she's doing - using her head both in business and her body. [Posted 7.14.23]

NAME: Priscilla Borrego

WHO IS SHE: TV reporter in Shreveport, LA

HER STYLE: Medium-long center-part; often straight and tight on camera, but a Hair Fan sent us this more "relaxed" look posted for National Selfie Day

WHY WE LIKE IT: That Hair Fan praised her for "very rich dark color, great body, very silky looking" locks. We think the selfie shows that off much better than her in-studio pictures, which seem to have a small headband around the top of her head for security. The "safe mode" has its place, but the free-flow grabs our attention a lot more.

SUPER-HAIR? She seems intent on making sure it is. We found nothing to indicate it's not. So we'll give her a yes - but we'd point out Shreveport is a city filled with great hairstyles. We've shown many of them here through the years. Our photo indicates she's top-level - but maybe her TV look is built to outlast the rest. [Posted 6.30.23]
