Let’s talk Oscars!

February 26, 2013 — 2 Comments

Ok, who watched the Oscars on Sunday? I went to an Oscars party, complete with voting ballots, Oscar bingo cards and amazing food! It was a long night though…I think the Oscars need to consider cutting a few categories like “Sound Mixing” and “Sound Editing”, and what’s the difference?

On to the fun stuff. Let’s dish on some hair do’s and dont’s. I have my own “Hair Fix” awards to hand out.

In the category of “Best Adapted Edited Short Pixie”, my winner is Charlize Theron!

In the category of “Best Production Design of an Updo”, my winner is Amanda Seyfried!

In the category of “Best Overall Visual Appearance of a Couple”, my winner is Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner!

Well, we made it through award season. Whew! I thought it would never end. We saw some amazing hair throughout the season…and of course there were some hairstyles that made my face do this…

The Oscars are tonight…who’s watching? You know I will, and now that a certain PBS show has ended for the season I might even watch the Oscars all the way through!

Stay tuned for my Oscars hair recap tomorrow.

Grammys Hair Exposed!

February 11, 2013 — Leave a comment

Does anyone else have awards show burn-out? I’m almost there! They always fall on a Sunday night in the middle of Downton Abbey.

The Grammys are always great celebrity watching. Even that style memo sent to all of the performers, presenters and attendees could not stop the hits and misses we saw last night.

When you think Grammys you think music and rock and roll. That can go one of two ways, really cool and edgy or tacky and hot mess. Here’s my choices for both categories.

I loved Rihanna’s long flowing locks! I think it’s the best her hair has ever looked. The soft honey highlights really lit up her skin and contrasted against that amazing red dress. I also loved Florence Welchs’ loose updo. It was the perfect amount of softness to play off of her emerald green lizard-like dress…now that’s what you expect from the Grammys! My final fave from the night is J. Lo’s top knot. I love that she’s not afraid to try new hair looks. Each outfit or awards show you get a whole new character from Jennifer. Kudos to her!

My least fave’s were Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Bonnie Mckee (never heard of her either!)

Katy’s hair is so one note. Her extensions are so long and heavy and there’s no dimension in her hair color. I never thought I’d want to see her crazy purple or turquoise hair come back, but at least that made a statement. Taylor Swift, really with the milk-maid braid? All of her songs are about bad break-ups (I’ve lost track. How many? 20?) yet she grasps to this persona of innocence and purity. Let your braid down and do something unexpected and wild…it’s the Grammys afterall! Seriously, who wears a milk-maid braid with a grecian goddess to the Grammys? Then we have Bonnie Mckee who I’ve never heard of, but like I said the Grammys can bring out tacky hot messes. What is happening here? Fire engine red and blonde hair pulled up into a thick wrap around braid…wow, edit much?

Whew, the Grammys were so long…it seemed like a 3 hour show.  Let’s rest up…the Oscars are in two weeks and I need my strength!
