Wowser! Cher’s bad hairdo makes me want to curl up and dye.
Amy Winehouse was drastically dressed down last weekend while enjoying a U.K. holiday with friends – and the pics caused a minor stir with the British papers.
The singer was caught enjoying the long holiday weekend –and the first signs of summer sunshine – with pals, wine and a touch of hair bleach. (Cue the Back to Black jokes!)
Dressed only in a black bra and tiny denim shorts, Winehouse – sans her signature beehive – also revealed a bald patch and her efforts with an at-home hair dye kit on her bangs.
“It’s Amy enjoying the sun at the weekend,” per her London rep. She also smoked, drank and chatted with friends during her time in Oxfordshire, west of London.
A friend of Winehouse’s agrees, saying Winehouse was just taking advantage of the good weather in her own style.
“The sun makes people do crazy things,” a Winehouse pal says. “Walking around in your bra in your own garden when it’s hot out isn’t all that crazy. She doesn’t care about having her picture taken like that. She wouldn’t even think about that. It’s Amy being Amy – she doesn’t care what people think.”
After a May Day blog post about his new look, John Mayer –and his new feathered ’80s-haircut–headed out to New York’s Soho Friday night, still talking about, yes, his newly shorn tresses. “I want everyone who reads PEOPLE magazine to know how important this haircut is,” Mayer said outside the Comedy Cellar after performing a standup routine. It’s important because it draws people together. Feel it. Run your fingers through my hair, and tell me what it feels like. It feels like silk.” And hair was the only topic on Mayer’s mind, having brushed off questions about his Miami weekend with Jennifer Aniston, saying, “Forget about blogs.” Instead, Mayer took this reporter’s hand and insisted that she run her fingers through his hair again– and again. “Run your fingers through it all the way and describe what it feels like,” he said, before demanding, “Now, write a haiku about what my hair feels like.” It couldn’t be done on the spot. “That’s the thing,” he said. “No one can do it,” before climbing into the front seat of his car and driving away.
Can you write a haiku about John Mayer’s hair?
Here’s the thing. John Travolta looks ridiculous with that mustache, but this hairdo is a BIG improvement over his recent look. I don’t know if that thing on his head is a really bad toupee, an overdose of Rogaine or the aftermath of an attack by a small chinchilla, but Kelly Preston must sleep better at night knowing she isn’t going to wake up to Cousin It every morning.
Too much maintenance is hell on your hair, as shown by Elizabeth Hurley when her BALD SPOT was recently photographed.
Now, it’s worth it for Liz. Millions of dollars is an okay trade-off for balding caused by hair abuse. If you aren’t going to be a supermodel, then don’t bother perfecting your hair. You’ll have no excuse.
The first of the month brings new beginnings, new thoughts — and a new look for John Mayer, who took to his blog this morning. “Today I set off on my newest project,” writes the 30-year old musician, who made news this week after spending time in Miami with Jennifer Aniston. But his newest project isn’t romantic — it’s hairier than that. His goal: “To grow and maintain an authentic ’80s style feathered haircut,” he blogs, further insisting, “It’s something I’ve wanted to do for some time.” He admits to being “very excited to bring this amazing look into today’s pop culture landscape,” noting, “The feathered cut projects an attitude of ease and quiet confidence that seems to have all but eluded our generation. And as my hair grows longer it will serve to become a more stirring and poignant statement.” For inspiration, he posts photos of ’80s hair icons Michael J. Fox, Shaun Cassidy and Kristy McNichol — whom Mayer dubs, “The goal personified.”
Huh… the new ‘do on Pushing Daises Kristin Chenoweth is interesting to say the least. The heavy bangs are one thing, but it looks like she took the comb and when crazy with the teasing and hairspray. Seriously, doesn’t she look OLD with this hairstyle? These people have stylists and assistants and agents. Are they too afraid of losing their jobs to say, “Hey Grandma, march your butt back to the salon”?
