Celebrity Mums – best hair!

Here are my top three of celebrity mums who have gorgeous hair, and reasons why their style suits them! I have no knowledge of what they are like as mums… but I do know they have great hair! (No particular order)…

  1. Kim Kardashian: Whilst she may change her colour slightly, or have her style altered a little – she sticks to a formula that works for her… long, dark luscious locks (even her blonde choices are warm, and keep dark running through). She can go full or sleek, and mostly wears it centre parting and this works for her as it balances out her full, curvy figure. Her hair is ultra feminine just like her overall look. Her layers shape her face, but are kept long, so she can still tie it back, and she suits it pulled back too, but only because she has a nice long ponytail swinging behind her to keep it all very feminine. Whilst she probably has a stylist on speed dial, her style is well cut, so she could wash and dry and style a little then go.
  2. Gwen Stefani: She really is cool… and many have copied her iconic platinum blonde hair including Rita Ora… Gwen is retro but modern if that makes sense and even back during her No Doubt days she rocked it and still does, especially as she includes her poppy red lipstick with her look – bringing that touch of vintage to her makeup too. If you are going for a similar look remember that this one is super high maintenance, but punches an impact in the school playground at your kids’ pick up time.
  3. Emma Willis: Currently presenting The Voice on BBC, this little lady clearly looks after herself – what a figure for being a mum! She looks great! Plus love her hair – she proves that short can be super sexy and versatile… mostly choosing to wear it sleek, but on last weekend’s show she went with a slicked back, wet look with height – it suits her chiselled features and the dark colour makes her blue eyes really sparkle.

Which celeb mums do you love the hair of?

Inspired by the News this week…

I have been so busy this week, and love it! But I have managed to get glimpses of important news this week too… How could I miss the following?!

  • The sad and unexpected death of Peaches Geldof… Like millions of others I am shocked, and my thoughts go out to her friends and family.
  • The Voice is finished, hosted by Emma Willis and Marvin Humes… the winner being Jermaine Jackman.
  • Kate and Wills head to the other side of the world… I used to live and work in Aus, and think it is great!
  • The fact that Kate Moss has been working for forty years now! Amazing!

So like all of you I will have my thoughts on all news including the above… but what I do is hair! So I am using these news pieces as hair-inspiration...

Peaches Geldof has been a queen of style and colour change, and whilst I think she has suited many of her hair choices, my favorite on her was the more recent style, because it has a retro elegance, and looks effortless. It reminds me of some of the red carpet looks I have styled… that fusion of rock-chick, and grooming but with effortlessness, and with Hollywood glamour.

I also loved the rock chick style of Peaches’ mother Paula Yates – and I can see that many modern celebrities are inspired by her look. You can even achieve Paula Yates’ look if you have longer hair… Check out the blonde bombshell video I did for L’Oreal.

Totally loving the super sleek bob that Emma Willis wore at the final of The Voice… she shone and her hair looked in fantastic condition!

When it comes to Kate Middleton’s hair – I love the safe pretty princess look – It is retro too – and has a feel of the classic Wonder Women… So sweet and still sexy – perfect for a princess… but I would really love to style her hair one day!

Lastly, FROM ONE KATE TO THE NEXT… I think it is amazing that Kate Moss has literally been rocking it for forty years in the fashion industry! Talk about icon… And how can I seriously even begin to sum-up all of her hair dos and don’ts over those four decades… but I can tell you one thing that is for sure – she manages to rock any look – long, short, classic, modern, blonde, red, dark, light, shaggy, smooth… Another lady I would love to get my hands on…

What do you say Kate? And Kate?
