Amazingly, celebrity hair styles are one of the biggest influences of the way we dress. Many of the more popular hairstyles of the years have come from big time and even small time celebrities that happened to have great hair and a great stylist that made us all stand up and pay attention. Because celebrities are thought to be the most beautiful and sort of the ideal for both men and women, why wouldn't we want to copy celebrity hair styles?
One of the most well-known hair styles is that of Jennifer Aniston. Rachel on Friends had a sexy, easy, layered look that all the women wanted. Many women still wear variations of the Rachel hairstyle today, making it obvious just how powerful celebrity hair styles are. Over the past couple of years Jennifer Aniston has played with longer and shorter looks. Last year she went straight most of the time, but this year she is going for the tousled, slightly curled look. To the surprise of many fans, her hair isn't pin straight and the wavy looks that are back for 2006 are ideal for Jennifer Aniston and people like her that have slightly wavy hair. There is no doubt that Jennifer Aniston has naturally beautiful hair, but most people can recreate her looks even if their hair isn't as naturally healthy or full as Jennifer's is.
Another famous face in celebrity hair styles is Jessica Simpson. Jessica Simpson is simply the cover girl of fashion and beauty right now, and women young and old can't help but envy her beautiful body, beautiful skin, and trend setting hair styles. Jessica has played around with very long hair styles that have been pin straight and has done short bobs that are wavy. Jessica Simpson also likes to play around with ponytails, up dos and braids of various sorts. There isn't much that Jessica Simpson isn't willing to try with her hair, because she knows just about everything can be undone with a visit to her stylist. Jessica is a huge fan of extensions as she can go from ultra short to ultra long from one day to the next.
Britney Spears is another celebrity that has influenced women young and old. First, she had the blond locks, and then she went for the ultra long look, all of which suited her. Like Jessica Simpson, Britney isn't afraid to play around with different looks. She too has gone for the pin straight look as well as the wavy look. Britney has played around with extensions, but has also gone short and conservative like she did when she was pregnant. Britney currently has a natural bob that suites her and is probably quite easy for the relatively new mom that is trying to do the job that motherhood entails while recording a new record.
Jessica Alba is another celebrity that many women look to for hair styling tips. Jessica has beautiful hair and has the ability to wear it in very simple styles as well as very beautiful styles, and look great all the time. Jessica Alba typically wears a medium length hair style that is layered to frame her face, which is an ideal cut for most facial structures because it helps to bring out your best features.
Celebrity hair styles definitely give us all an idea of what we can do with our own hair, but it's just a starting place. What makes a great hair style is the person wearing it. You can have long extensions a-la-Jessica-Simpson, but if you don't have the attitude and personality to pull it off then you might want to go for the medium length hair styles that she has worn, or even the shorter shoulder length dos that we've seen on her over the last year or two. Celebrities have the knowledge and the guidance to always have great hair, as well as the resources, so it is no wonder that we all look to them for styling ideas.
If you are looking for great celebrity hair styles, pick up your favorite gossip magazine, or even look for the hair magazines that offer highlights of the most popular stars hair styles and how you can achieve the same look. Remember if you are attempting to copy such a hair style that it not only looks good on the star, but that it will look good with your facial structure as well as the thickness or texture of YOUR hair.
