Celebrity hair disasters, bad cuts, and out-dated styles.

Too much flat iron

Overkill on the flat iron for Keith Urban at the CMAs, right? I’ve still only watched the opening monologue but his face also looked a lot like his wife’s. Smoother cheeks or something? Also, did he seem a bit off? I feel like he was a bit off. Which goes against conventional wisdom. Because he’s supposed to be more chill and fun to be around when she’s not, right? The video and photo assumption, to me at least, seems like it’s the opposite. Full Story

Taylor Swift was nominated for several awards last night. And while she was not named Best Female Artist, she did receive the Country Music Association’s Pinnacle Award, an honour that has only been bestowed once before – to Garth Brooks. She’s 23 years old. This is HUGE. How huge? Look at all the legends who were brought out to PRESENT IT TO HER. Full Story

I don’t know if this is so much blonde as it is…orange? It’s sun-in. Do you know sun-in? Sun-in was a product we used back in the day to lighten our hair. You’d spray the sun-in on and then go in the sun. Most of us just cheated and turned on the hair dryer. What came out wasn’t so much blonde as it was…burnt. Full Story

Jennifer Garner was at the premiere of Dallas Buyers Club in LA last night with a fully present fringe – not parted, not swept to the side. Last week on The Social we talked about hair extensions and how almost everyone you think has great hair in Hollywood probably uses them. Full Story

It’s partly her own doing, I think. Had she showed up just on her own as Claire Danes, then she would have just been Claire Danes and the hair and the tan and that dress, which is not getting enough criticism, would have been judged on their own. But she showed up for most people’s first time on Ryan Seacrest’s carpet, hijacking the Lena Dunham interview and essentially pushing him off camera. Full Story

I like Anna Faris so much, so much, so much. But… I’m worried. I worry that maybe the pressure after baby was too much, what with getting a new show and – gasp! – being almost 37 in Hollywood. Was it too much? There seems to be a lot of stress on her face, you know? Like…is it breaking? I don’t want to say that. Full Story

Okay, so we know there’s a hierarchy to these things, right? All the dresses are chosen in sequence of who gets to wear them, with the best going first, and the last ones going to the guest stars or wives or ladies Of A Certain Age. Malin Akerman isn’t super A-list, but she’s not nobody, either. Full Story

It's past his shoulders now

Brad Pitt's hair. Like before it was grazing his shoulders. Now though, as you can see, it's long enough so that he can, you know, if you have it or you've had it, flip it back behind your shoulders with your hand. Are you into it? Brad's looks can be polarising. For the most part, I'm usually pro-Pitt. Full Story

This is apparently what Jennifer Aniston's hair in Squirrels For The Nuts will look like. This is apparently what "therapist" hair looks like? She plays one in the film. Here's Jen heading to set today wearing her big engagement ring. These shots provide a really good illustration of what a difference good hair makes. Full Story

Maybe...it’s time to the cut the hair. Here’s Brad Pitt last night at the NY premiere of World War Z. We were talking yesterday about Brad Pitt’s Carb Face Hustle and whether or not it’s filler, which is what I think. Full Story

Oh thank God it was a wig

Zhang Ziyi showed up with short hair last night at the Palais in Cannes and I recoiled in horror. The hair. It looked like she’d chopped it, and I was all ready to write an article today, finally with photo accompaniment, about why it’s hard for Chinese girls to do the pixie because of the way it grows out spikey and straight up out our heads. Full Story
