As if a dramatic blue-haired bob was not enough of an attention grabber, Katy Perry  occasionally likes to crimp her hair, too. With textured hair now at the forefront of fashion, the crimper is also back in style. Like all trend revivals, the crimper is back with a modern twist. Narrower, shallower ridges create an effect that is less old school crimped, more new school twists of cool texture and volume. Try crimping for a special occasion, or anytime you want to be the center of attention.

Model turned TV host Alexa Chung has mastered effortlessly cool hair. By wearing an unfussy long bob (now known as the lob), she has given herself lots of styling options, and she can also let the length grow out, knowing that her style is never meant to be too perfect.

We love how the painted on blonde on the ends defines her strong, pretty cheekbones.

Blonde say goodbye, brunette say hello! Mary-Kate debuted a cool chestnut brown at this weeks’ CFDA Fashion Awards in NYC.

With newfound warmth, richness, luster, her locks look lush and glossy, healthy and happy. So are the twins –– they swept away the ceremony’s top honor, Womenswear Designer of the Year.

Her skin tone and eye color are a great match for blistering hot blonde ambition, yet red is more of a one-of-a-kind individual look. It is so striking; it gives her the rustic mien of an Irish peasant girl. Two distinctive colors with the power to frame your personality –– what’s your flavor?
