And this week’s Best Hair Award goes to…

Fri, 22 July 2011 5:19PM

Primpettes, there were so many great hairstyles happening this week, I couldn’t nut it down to one winner. Instead, here are the beauties that made the cut.

# 1: Ms Jennifer Aniston with her perfectly highlighted, intentionally disheveled centre part that boasts just the right amount of back combing. Yes, it’s a tad safe, but this style will never let you down.

#2: Emma Stone with her laid-back take on the classic high pony. Start by back-combing the crown first, then ditch the brush and use your hands to style your hair back into the pony instead.

#3: Malin Akerman with her softly, tousled, beach-y waves which aren’t too dissimilar to Pixie Lott and Diane Vickers that I rattled on about the other day, over here.

#4: Imogen Poots with her loosely-pulled back bun and wispy front layers. If you’re new to up-styles, Primpettes, this is how you do it. Ditch using a hair elastic, and use bobby pins to create the same soft finish.

(Never heard of Ms Poots? She’s an English actress, and we’re predicting she’s going to be HUGE)

Imogen Poots

#5: Cat Deeley with her trademark, barely-there-looking waves. I like to call this ‘do the hair style for girls that can’t tong. You want imperfect, slept-in-looking waves, so quickly tong small sections in varying directions before shaking your hair out using your hands.

Hopefully, next week, Team Brunette will be back on the wagon and ready to razzle dazzle us again.


Which style do you like best?

Are you a fan of back-combing?

Does the weather ever get in the way of trialling a new ‘do?

    i love backcombing… when i straighten my hair i have to backcomb a bit so it doesnt look flat, and then with curls it helps for my hair to look more voluminous! my fav is Imogen’s, looks so soft and pretty!

    I adore Malin and Imogen styles but I must say I really dislike Jennifer’s hair in that photo!

    WOW Imogen Poots is stunning I too suspect she will me someone to watch. Love her style and Emma’s is amazing also (nothing new or suprising).

    I like Imogen and Cat’s looks the best. I backcomb when I remember, and I wish I remembered more often because it looks good! Weather – I try to leave my long hair down to keep my neck warm hehe

    I like the hair styles of Imogen Poots and Jennifer Anniston. In fact Jennifer always has great hair dos. I never heard of Imogen before and I agree with you that she is going to be huge.

    Now and again I do back comb my hair. As for weather, yes it gets in the way when it rains like this horrible Sydney rain. My hair becomes frizzy again. I usually pin it up into a hair bun.

    I haven’t really mastered the whole backcombing. But it really makes all the difference in adding height to the hair style

    I love Malin Akerman’s hair with it’s soft, flirtatious waves!

    i love all their hair!!!!! i dont even mind Jen’s regrowth that much :)

    I love the backcombing look, but haven’t been able to achieve it on my hair!! :(

    PS the weather is always in the way of new hair do’s!!!

    everytime i try a sleek and straight do i will guarantee it will rain.. and not just blobs of rain, but that dang mist that covers everything in a light wet sheen -which creates the ultimate flyaways and frizz!

    I love Imogen and Emma’s looks the best.

    Weather does have some factors in myself trying a new hair style.
    Cat Deeley is my pick but there all gorgeous.

  • Posted by: xKMS Master Fan // Sun, 24 July 2011 05:11pm

    my least fave is probably Jen Anistons – its just so the same as usual – but i love the rest!! honestly cant even choose a favourite out of the rest!!

  • Posted by: Coconal Master Fan // Sun, 24 July 2011 09:01pm

    I love Jen and Malin the most here!

  • Posted by: Bantam Master Fan // Sun, 24 July 2011 11:07pm

    Wow so many different looks but so pretty. I’ve never heard of Imogen before, but maybe she’s the next Keira Knightley!

  • Posted by: Floss Supporter // Mon, 25 July 2011 10:51am

    My vote goes for Imogen. She looks gorgeous, and it would be really easy to replicate.

  • Posted by: tegania11 Master Fan // Mon, 25 July 2011 05:34pm

    i am not really in love with jens roots… but i love everyone else’s hair!!

  • Posted by: Julieow Master Fan // Tue, 26 July 2011 10:48am

    Oh love Imogen’s waves and Cat Deeley always has such great hair, its so thick!

  • Posted by: lady Devotee // Tue, 26 July 2011 12:49pm

    I love Jennifer Aniston’s hair – I know she always plays it safe, but it suits her so well!

    Back combing is so effective – I never thought of using it to add a little volume, I thought it was more for adding incredible height!

  • Posted by: GorgeousEmeralds Master Fan // Tue, 26 July 2011 03:25pm

    Emma Stone’s hair is perfect here in my eyes, it is done up yet still seems romantic and youth embracing.

  • Posted by: Jo-1310093326 Enthusiast // Wed, 27 July 2011 02:43pm

    I love Cat Deely’s hairstyle because it looks effortless and gorgeous. don’t get me wrong , they all do but Cat’s does it for me. I always forget to back comb and complain my hair is looking flat. Go figure. .. Like jessocialite, i keep my hair down when it’s cold to keep my neck warm.

    Imogen Poots wins for me!

  • Posted by: talkalot Master Fan // Wed, 9 October 2013 02:57pm

    I really like all these hair styles. When the weather is hot I like to wear my hair up to let my neck breath.

  • Posted by: talkalot Master Fan // Wed, 28 January 2015 07:41pm
