Brigitte Bardot and a deer

I love Brigitte Bardot so much that I could have a blog just about her and her hair and the beautiful pictures I find of her. She really is my idea of a perfect woman. Naturally pretty..with little imperfections like her messy hair and the gap in her teeth. I secretly always wanted a gap in-between my front teeth!

When I look at photos of Brigitte, she oozes confidence but also seems fun and playful. Look at her feeding this deer some grass! So cute! And her hair always looks incredible. She has inspired me to wear my hair half up more, which is the best of both worlds-hair edition.

When Jake and I were in Brazil a few years ago, we went to a little fishing village called Buzios. For various reasons that date back to the 1960s, this particular village worshiped Miss Bardot. They have a statue right on the water that I went to every day and got a million pictures with.


Out of all my hair idols, Brigitte is my main hair idol squeeze. My love for her will never falter.  This picture of her with the deer seals the deal.

Oscars best and more best.

I had so much fun watching the Red Carpet specials last night. Everyone looks so beautiful and there wasn’t a single gown I wouldn’t wear myself. Here are a few of my favorites.

Mila Jovavich was tied for my favorite head to toe. Her dark hair with her deep lips and textured white gown were all a hit with me. She is so slinky and just looks plain hot.

Rooney Mara is my girl who tied with Mila. You can probably see why, with her having the same color scheme as Mila, I guess that’s what I was feeling last night. I think Rooney may have done better because her colors contrasted a little more. Her hair is so dark, her skin is so white, her lips were the perfect plum and her gown was just beautiful. I loved her bangs and her little bun in the back. When I was in middle school, I called that bun an egg.

Something else I loved about Rooney, is that she is still new to red carpets, and has no idea how to pose. I mean that in a good way. She looks like a normal person instead of the same old hand on hip, over the shoulder peek that we always see.

I love Rose Byrne for having a cute bob with heavy bangs. I saw people ripping her bangs on twitter, but I thought they went great with her overall look. I just love her anyway.


Michelle Williams wins for best dress color. I am obsessed with this tomato red gown. The fabric, the texture, the peplum, the broach..all perfect. And that blonde with the red. I just love her. I wanted her to win. I still haven’t seen her as Marilyn, but I’m dying to.


Jessica Chastain had one of my favorite gowns on. I thought the pattern was beautiful, and only wish she would have had a low bun at her nape. Her hair color looked much better than a blonde would in this gown, but I like hair up when there is such a busy pattern. Those are my little adjustments, but she did look gorgeous anyway. Also, I loved her in The Help.

Angelina Jolie looked gorgeous. Her make up, her hair, her velvetylicious gown….but her posing had me going bonkers. Her leg sticking out in every single picture just started to bother me. She’s beautiful and talented and still on my best list, but just because your gown has a high slit doesn’t mean you have to do the splits down the red carpet so everyone can see your leg. Ok?

I’m so relieved to not be doing a worst list. Everyone just looked to good to rip on. Even the correspondents! Kelly Osborne! Giuliana Rancic! Some other blonde girl that I never heard of!

The show was actually pretty fun this year, with all the clips they did and the funny spoofs. I loved that cirque performance. But as usual, I enjoy the hair/dresses the most.

Who were your favorites of the night?

Just in case any of you have questioned how perfect JayZ and Beyonce’s baby might be, here is a photo of the little darling’s hair. I mean, the little darling. Sorry, I can’t take my eyes off Blue Ivy’s hair. What baby is born not bald? I mean, she is actually perfect.

Elvis: My longest running crush.

It’s Valentine’s week. Let’s talk about sexy hair!

Elvis was my first crush. I grew up listening to his music and watching his movies with my parents. Seeing these photobooth pictures made me so happy! I started laughing when I first saw them, because what the H was he up to? Was this at a party? I love the smolder in photo 1 and 2, but the 3rd photo where he is distracted adds a certain mystery to the set. Did he take off his tie for the second picture and then put it back on for the third? Once my mom&dad’s best friend met Elvis while she was living in Hawaii. That is the #1 ultimate celeb sighting of all time.

I wish I knew him.

Anyway, Elvis is sexy.

So is his hair.

PS my Elvis crush may be one of the nerdiest things about me. I was only about 8 when it started, and I spent the next 5 years gathering collectables and memorizing lyrics. Only to eventually start crushing on real boys my own age. I kind of miss us, me and Elvis.

2012 Golden Globes

Posted in Celebrities, News on January 16th, 2012 by Reagan

Did you watch the Golden Globes last night? I did an impromptu live discussion on my facebook page of the show and it was so fun! I think now that it’s award season, I’ll have to do it more!

I have to say, I was very impressed with the women last night. The gowns, the make up, the hair. I wish I could say the same for the men. They were all way too tan. Oh well, they can’t all be as suave as Leonardo DiCaprio I guess.

Alright, here are my favorite looks of the night!

The cut and color of Reese’s dress are perfect. The blood red looked great against her skin and hair. Normally, I would prefer a slicked pony with a structured gown like this, but she looked fresh and beautiful as she was. I couldnt find a photo of her without her hands on her waist, which was a shame because she was a hippy goddess in that red number, and her hands took away from that.


Kate Beckinsale’s gown was such a great color on her. I loved the sharp neckline and her updo was the perfect choice.


Nicole Richie walked onto the red carpet with straight up dinosaur hair, and I was feeling it. You know she had 20lbs of hair extensions in there, and it was beautiful. I want to recreate this look with some wave. Hot!


Zooey Deschanel killed it. She looked so cool out there with her one of a kind Prada gown and her retro hair. I couldn’t find a great profile shot, but she had some kind of sideburn chops that completed the look. I think she may have been wearing a wig, because her hair is normally a lot longer, and I doubt she cut it.


I always love Michelle Williams, but it wasn’t until she walked up onstage to accept her award that I saw how subtly slinky she looked in this gown. She could not be cooler. Showing hardly any skin and almost no jewelry, and she still looks gorgeous. Also, her speech about being a mom had me tearing up. She’s a lady. Oh yeah, and I loved that she brought her best friends Busy as her date.


Claire Danes and Emily Blunt tied for first as my favorite gowns. I could not find a photo of Emily’s gown anywhere though! They both chose dresses that looked perfect with their hair color.

I’ve realized that my favorite gowns are usually sleeveless. I don’t like strapless on me, so I think I naturally lean towards a little fabric up top. There were so many hits on the red carpet, I could have gone on and on. Felicity Huffman? Tilda Swinton? Laura Dern? They all looked awesome. Who am I missing?


Lana Del Rey’s flowery headpieces.

I was recently introduced (well, my ears were) to Lana Del Rey by my friend Amanda Blair (you guys know her!)

Before I knew she had a pretty face and beautiful hair, I met her voice. She can sing so beautifully that all you can do is listen. I’ve been listening to her for about a month now, and have started to become interested in who this girl actually is. So, yes, she has amazing hair and a gorgeous face (and dude, pouty mouth!)…also, she calls herself a “gangsta Nancy Sinatra” which is important to me because These Boots Were Made For Walkin’ was the first song I ever memorized….But her flowery head pieces are the thing about her. They make me scream out loud and I want one in every color. And I want them to be made out of real flowers like hers.

See below.


I’m always a little sad to find out that some musicians come from a lot of money. It seems like an unfair advantage in the art world. To me, musicians (or any artist) are supposed to struggle in the beginning, it makes their music more authentic. Lana came from millionaire parents who found the right people to create an image for her (her real name is elizabeth grant) including a good plastic surgeon, but at least the girl really can sing. It’s just a little weird to find out that someone who seems so mysterious and interesting is kind of a fake. Despite all the controversy over her, her music is worth checking out. Give Video Games and Blue Jeans a listen!

Also, it’s pretty safe to say that I’m basically in love with floral head pieces. I think I like the top one the best.

My favorite blondes: Elle Fanning

LOVE shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot

Elle Fanning on the cover of LOVE magazine takes my breath away, pure and simple. The fuzzy waves and the random little white ribbon is just so pretty. I have been loving this cover for the last few months, and recently when I got my W in the mail with Elle and Dakota on it together I had a new Elle Fanning magazine cover to love. Both covers are styled (both clothes and hair/make up) and shot so well.

The Reverse Ombre (ish) done right!

Posted in Celebrities on December 4th, 2011 by Reagan

I recently talked about the reverse ombre and why it’s a bad idea. But there is another way to do it that looks good and isn’t so much maintenance.

Instead of painting the highlights on to gradually go from light roots to dark ends, you can do your highlights on top like normal, and do a single process underneath. By going a few shades darker underneath, you are actually creating a very natural look. Naturally the sun wouldn’t lighten that hair, because it’s not ever reaching it. If you have layers, even long layers, the darker underneath part will peek through the lighter parts, making a similar “reverse ombre” effect. There is actually very minimal damage with color like this, because you don’t have to do highlights underneath, and that saves your ends from a lot of grief! I had my hair like this for several years. I would do a 7N or 8N underneath, and do highlights on top every few months to keep it bright.

Here are a few pictures!

You guys, I don’t know why I just don’t enjoy J-Simps’ company. Her hair is a good example of what I’m talking about though.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s is my favorite!

Nicole always has great hair. Not because she has naturally great hair, but because she has a great stylist.

Way back in beauty school, we called this look The Shadowbox. We did a more severe look like Christina Aguilera though. Back in 2002, I loved the platinum blonde with red or black underneath. You couldn’t pay me to do it now. Ha.

Would you try this look?
