The biggest misconception about me is the bad-boy image that everyone stuck me into due to my tattoos, drug days and the constant changes I make with my hair color.
Everything I do, I want to be A.J. Styles. When you see a guy come out with dry, long hair, I want you to be like, ‘Hey, that reminds me of A.J. Styles.’ That’s what I want.
I’m a chubby middle-aged white guy with short hair. I think that’s it, really. I kind of have a look. Right now, I’m not fat enough to be the fat friend, but I’m not thin enough to be the leading man, so I look like a cop.
Everyone always asks, ‘Did you ever rebel? Did you dye your hair blue? Did you wear black nail polish?’ I mean, of course, there have been episodes when you wear weird-colored lipstick… But generally, I think I was pretty much the way I am now.
A man should be well groomed. If you’re going to have facial hair, it should be a choice, not an accident.
I use Pureology Shampoo and Conditioner, and after shampooing, I’ll put the conditioner on, go watch a movie, and wash it out later. When you have black girl hair, once we wash, we’ve gotta do the whole press and get in the edges and everything. That’s a lot of heat to go back to straight on a daily basis.
All I want is beautiful. I mean, I like grey hair, I love wrinkles. But this is me.
Flannel shirts, denim, Converse, a guitar, messy hair? That’s literally me.
It’s a very unnatural environment to be in, up on a stage. So you put up defenses to hide. Like looking at the ground with your hair in your eyes, or being tightly wound and quite aggressive and uncooperative, as I used to do.
I’ve known the poet Eileen Myles since the 1990s, when I first moved to New York, and I remember seeing her walking her Pit Bull Rosie around the East Village. She had these beautiful arms and David Cassidy hair and the sort of swagger so many of the gay boys I knew wished we had. We all had crushes on her.
In high school, I was so painfully self-aware that how I thought of myself was probably very different from what other people thought of me. I thought of myself as just painfully awkward and dorky. I had a lot of hair and was kind of weird. I sang a lot in the hallways.
My mum is really fair and has blonde hair, and my dad is not dark, either.
A fan once asked if he could have a piece of my hair for voodoo. I said no, so he hugged me and plucked out a couple of hairs and ran off.
I play with doing a forehead bun a lot, just a bantu knot right in front of the forehead and keep it in with a clip. And I like doing real pinup styles but based on my natural hair.
I like the Victory rolls, beehive, pompadour – all of that stuff. It’s just cool. And actually, with ethnic hair, oddly enough, it works so well because I don’t have to tease my hair to get body.
Well, I actually tell my son that I don’t have any hair because he asked me the same question that I gave it to him when he was born, so he actually still believes that. He’s five years old.
It breaks my heart that I don’t see my daughters every day, don’t get to hug them and brush their hair.
When I was 12, every little girl in Russia was trying to wear her hair like mine and playing tennis.
I love when a girl is like, ‘I can’t hang out. I have to go to class.’ And I go pick her up, and she’s all sweaty in a leotard with her hair in a bun. That’s the hottest thing ever.
While I was shooting for ‘NH10,’ my hair had to look dirty in the film. To improve the texture… quality of hair, I had to use a lot of conditioner.
When you are at the Olympic Games, it comes down to a ten thousandth of a hair between making the next round or winning a race or getting second or third.
I feel like when I went back to my original hair color, a little bit of an edgier side came out.
I use Kerastase Oleo-Relax when I get out of the shower. It saves my hair. Actually, I’ve been doing this Brazilian treatment to my hair. It’s a lifesaver I don’t even use a straightener anymore.
The cycling helmet can save your life, but it doesn’t look good and tends to ruin your hair.
I like having my hair and face done, but I’m not going to lose weight because someone tells me to. I make music to be a musician not to be on the cover of Playboy.
Long hair is a security blanket for me. I cut it short a few years ago and I really never want to do that again. When I do cut it, I cut it myself.
If I’m doing my hair myself, I just wash it and let it naturally dry. I’m actually quite good at doing hair if I wear it up I usually do it myself.
My look is pretty low maintenance, I have a great team around me for hair and make-up, and they have also taught me some great tricks over the years for when I’m doing my own.
If I can’t even be bothered to brush my hair, I don’t think I should start getting face work… I think it would look a bit try-hard.
People that are 40, they don’t sit around at talk about gray hair and how it covers their hair. They talk about highlighting, of course they’re covering gray, but they don’t talk about it that way. They’re going to get their colors because they need a little lightening.
I never dye my own hair, I don’t know if I could get every spot, and I have a good bit of grey.
It’s usually my mom who gets on me about my facial hair. I can’t grow a good mustache, so I guess it’s just a neck beard. I just have trouble growing up there.
Not many people know this about me, but I’m a natural blonde. My hair went from light blonde naturally to a darker kind of blonde. My mother dyed my hair dark when I was a child, as I loved the look then. So I’m basically a natural blonde.
I’ve never been a social person. When I grew up, the other girls would all be combing their hair and exchanging lipstick, and I just couldn’t do that group thing.
I’m a guy’s guy. I don’t comb my hair unless I have to, and I don’t use lotions or fancy shampoos.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair.
I love the Kerastase Hair Oils and the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer. They’re great for making my hair really soft, but to be honest, any cheap conditioner works. Just leave it on and let it soak in, and it really helps, whatever you use.
It wasn’t cool that I didn’t comb my hair and had books and wore glasses. It was never cool be a nerd and tomboy, and these days, it really is. And I’m like, ‘You guys have no idea what I went through.’ How many times my mother yelled at me to comb my hair.
When you see me on TV against one of the other girls, they look 10 times better than me, and I’m OK with that. I make a conscious effort not to wear that much makeup and not have my hair so perfectly groomed. That’s just not me. I’m not going to be perfect.
When I was little, I got to pick my hair ribbon from my mother’s collection that hung over her dressing-table mirror. I have an entire room of ribbons in my New York apartment.
Being a parent of a boy who wants to wear sparkles and grow his hair long – especially when you don’t know where it’s all going to go – it’s hard stuff. I’m not being politically incorrect in acknowledging that, am I?
I try to always have a hair cut that I don’t have to style every day, so I’ll usually just let my hair air dry.
When I grew up, you needed to have straight hair. It’s symbolic of needing to be like everyone else, needing to look like everyone else. And what that meant was looking like the dominant ruling class in America.
Every comic went through their Mitch Hedberg phase – the glasses, the hair in the face – and you knew immediately when they were doing it.
Like when I had long hair, you kind of got male attention from everything. But when you had short hair, it was a different kind of man that was attracted to you or I found coming up.
It’s cheesy, but having a pimple or a bad hair day isn’t going to matter in five years. I don’t always remember that, but I try.
Our acquisition strategy is very clear: 3×3. Three continents – Asia, Africa and South America, and in three categories where we have strong positions – personal wash, household care and hair care.
When my hair is curly, I use Suave coconut conditioner. It’s not a leave-in, but I use it like one. It is so light and really brings out my hair’s curl. A lot of leave-ins are too heavy, but this one is just perfect. When it’s straight, I love Frederick Fekkai Tech Shampoo & Conditioner and their Olive Oil glossing cream.
Flashy people aren’t everything, you know. Even when they have frizzled hair.
My face is almost like a canvas – a blank canvas in the sense that the hair on my face is very, very fine and my skin is incredibly fair and my hair is quite dark, and that’s very unusual.
At the end of the week, it’s nice to just hang out in a pair of jeans and let my hair down. I need a break from all that fashion!
There are a couple of things that I’m sure people don’t think are important, but I do. I don’t like hair changes unless there’s a reason for it. Clothing – I don’t like to see an outfit worn more than one time in an hour – you can wear it again a few weeks later.
Why is there such vanity about hair? I make a point to bathe. I worry about boogers in my nose, and I ask the makeup artist to cover up my pimples, but beyond that, I try not to be too vain.
I hate the only one of my book jackets when I was made up professionally, my hair made into a smooth bell.
I have the softest beard in the world. As far as growing it, it doesn’t itch, and it’s so non-intrusive. But, I am so sick of hair on my face and on my head. Because I’m not a really hairy guy, I’m not really used to it.
I must say also that it’s never worked to my disadvantage that I have long, blond hair.
A lot of people have said that I’m trying to be like Justin Bieber by wearing a hat all the time. But the truth is, I don’t like the way my hair looks. It’s kind of weird, so I wear a hat all the time to cover it. I’ve been doing it since I was thirteen.
You have to also provide a video for it, look a certain way and big hair… If you’re a woman it’s even more strange with fake fingernails and corsets and all this stuff that was big in the 80s.
I’m very low maintenance. I use Simple wipes to take off my makeup, wash my hair with whatever’s in the shower.
I am going to cut my hair very short I’ve never done this before… I want to say I had something to do with how I look, not the cancer.
When I first sat down with my oncologist the day before Thanksgiving, and she told me I would need 8 rounds of chemo, one of my first questions admittedly was: ‘Will I lose my hair?’ It sounds shallow, I know, but it was a very scary image to me.
After two rounds of chemo, I’ve started to notice, slowly, but surely, my hair has started to appear more regularly in my shower drain, sink drain, pillowcase and comb.
As a people, Serbians are very tall, and we have olive skin and dark hair, which can look very nice. You have to be very beautiful to stand out.
You know, if I tell the press that I like long blonde hair, the next day there will be girls with long hair wigs outside waiting for me.
I did four movies where I gained, like, fifty pounds. I had curly hair, and I had all of this facial hair. I had put on all this weight for these movies, and I did four or five of them back-to-back. Then I cut the weight and I got fit again. I cut my beard and I took away the mustache, and people were like, ‘What are you doing?’
What I really wanted to know, though, was what it was like to be a geisha? Where do you sleep? What do you eat? How do you have your hair done?
I sometimes don’t wash my hair for two weeks. That’s pretty disgusting. It’s short, so sometimes it’s easier to just wet it.
Nobody ever recognizes me from ‘Mad Men,’ because they darken my hair a little bit.
I feel like you can do all the research in the world, but when you start putting that costume on, put your hair in a wig and walk into those sets, that’s where the visceral reaction is. It’s no longer in the head. It’s in the body.
People who worry about their hair all the time, frankly, are boring.
Rolf Ekeus, his appearance can deceive. He looks somewhere between an international diplomat and a mad professor. He’s got that sort of shock of white hair and a slightly absent-minded way of speaking. But he’s extremely sharp and very serious about power relationships.
Pull the hair on my head the wrong way, and I would be on my knees begging for mercy. I have very sensitive follicles.
Worry – a God, invisible but omnipotent. It steals the bloom from the cheek and lightness from the pulse it takes away the appetite, and turns the hair gray.
Give someone who has faith in you a placebo and call it a hair growing pill, anti-nausea pill or whatever, and you will be amazed at how many respond to your therapy.
I’d luv to kiss ya, but I just washed my hair.
I can’t count the number of times I’ve been sound asleep, woke up, and I was doing my hair.
I don’t think I missed a single picture Billie Dove ever made. I was crazy for her. I tried to do my hair like her, and eventually, I borrowed her name.
One of the very few things that I do every single day is put on fragrance. If I’m not wearing make-up, if my hair’s not done, if I’m walking around in pyjamas – I still put my fragrance on. I will brush my teeth and put on my perfume.
My hair is a safety net for me, so I love to have it down and full and relaxed.
I always like hair being a little messy because I think there’s something appealing about the whimsy of putting on a gown with any hair or make-up – just stepping into it, and you’re ready.
The hardest pill for me to swallow has been receiving recognition, getting dressed up, going to events. That’s the part that has always terrified me. You can see dozens of photos where I have zero hair and makeup and I’m wearing my own jeans and T-shirt, because I was not that interested in that side of it.
I wish my hair was thicker, and I wish my feet were prettier. My toes are really ugly. I wish my ears were smaller. And my nose could be smaller too.
When I first started, they were trying to get me into sitcoms – I think because I had that kind of Wonder Bread look and my hair always went into place. I kept saying, ‘I’m not good at sitcoms. I don’t know how to do that.’
My mother emails me stuff about when she finds a paparazzi photo and they’re like, his hair is out of control.
What’s interesting is a man with no facial hair is less intimidating than a man with facial hair, and a man who is bald is more intimidating than a man with hair.
That’s why I had to leave Hair on Broadway, because I did it for about a year, and one night I was doing the show, and I realized, well, this is not real. I told the director. He says, man, it was a killer show tonight.
I’ve hidden behind my hair more than clothes. Sometimes having long hair with a fringe is very useful when you don’t want to look at people. I used to have very short hair, but long hair is my thing – a black nocturnal shield.
I’m the artist formally known as Beck. I have a genius wig. When I put that wig on, then the true genius emerges. I don’t have enough hair to be a genius. I think you have to have hair going everywhere.
Like my makeup, I keep my hair simple. It’s either down or in a ponytail.
I think I’ve learned a lot just from being in the industry in general, and I never really thought about what to put in my hair to get a perfect beach wave until I started modeling. People will use certain products on me, and I learn that way.
I shave my body in all kinds of ways, wear tons of eyeliner and dye my hair pink.
When you see a fantastic colour or cut in a magazine, perched up on some famous so-and-so’s head, it’s tempting to ask your stylist for the same, but do not be fooled. The hair in those fancy photos can be very high maintenance.
I’m naturally a mousy blonde, so I dye my hair, and my eyebrows would disappear if I didn’t get through at least a pencil a month.
I have been 130 lbs. as well as 215 lbs. I have had blond, strawberry blond, green, pink and purple hair, and none of that has ever exempted me from having lewd comments flung at me in the street.
Get a Job’ is about all the rich kids we knew when we were younger, kids who never had jobs but always had money for partying or getting their hair done.
I always use dry shampoo, even if my hair isn’t oily. It gives me so much texture and that bedhead vibe.
I won’t usually make plans with people I don’t know on Fridays because all I want to do is stick my hair in a ponytail and put on a big sweater, some tights and a pair of sneakers after a week working in the city.
I have had every hair color. I joke with my hair colorist. She keeps sheets of paper on every hair color that I’ve had, so she has records of it all. She’s done my hair since I was 15, and I guess I have a thick folder going because I’ve had so many different hair colors.
I think my least favorite hair color was the hair color that I had in ‘Pitch Perfect 2.’ They really wanted me to be dark red, and I wanted to be lighter like I was in the first movie, but they didn’t want that. But I rocked some light red for a year, after it faded.
Nowadays, they have more trouble packing hair dryers than baseball equipment.
If you take a band like Nirvana, their biggest hits are structurally the same as even a hair metal band’s biggest hits. The structure’s not different – the attitude was different. Except it really wasn’t. It seemed a little more human.
When I was at Babbo, I was covered in scars and scabs and burned bits – melted hair, ribbed burns I got reaching across the top of a hot skillet… I sliced off the tip of my finger. I cleaved my forehead – a deep, ugly wound. Luckily, it regenerated.
My hair used to be real long, and my parents were encouraged when I cut it. They thought I was going ‘straight,’ but I was just getting weirder – at least in their eyes. I was getting into the punk thing.
They wouldn’t play my records on American radio because I had spiky hair. They said, ‘Punk rock doesn’t sell advertising, it won’t make any money.’
I got a tooth bust by somebody who decided they didn’t like me and I thought the moustache hid a scar on my lip. It’s true that people were told facial hair was not appreciated by the British public, but I just decided to keep the moustache.
It’s true that people were told facial hair was not appreciated by the British public, but I just decided to keep the moustache.
So when I got to 50 I just thought, Hold on: I’m thin. I’ve got my hair. I’m well off. I survived, you know.
For years I used to try to straighten my hair, but I’ve reached a stage where I think, ‘I’ve got red curly hair, and it’s actually really great.’
I had a hundred things I wanted to be, but when I was 13, I wanted to be an inventor. I wanted to improve the blow-dryer because it takes so long to blow-dry your hair, and it’s just a waste of time. I wanted to invent the therm-alarm, which would have you throw your sheets off in the night when you got too hot.
I’d love to go back to Broadway I’d love to do animation I’d love to do hair and make-up campaigns because I love hair and makeup – and, I’d love to do film. I mean, there are a lot of doors I’d love to open up!
If someone’s got good, clean skin, with not too much make-up on, and good, clean hair that’s bouncy, and the nails are clean and not overly done, then you can put anything on her and she’s going to look good.
Whether or not cutting my hair was the right decision, it empowered me.
The club thing is a world people can associate with, letting your hair down at the weekend.
I grew up in Dallas, with cowboys. I was the only guy in sixth grade with long hair and an earring. Let’s just say I got a lot of, er, flak for being different.
My most noticeable physical trait is, hands down, my hair. It’s big, unruly and curly, and you can spot it from a mile away… literally.
I have a big personality, and I think big personality plus blond hair makes me come across as glib. With dark hair, people look at your face more. Before, it was all about the hair.
My natural color is dark blond, but right now I like being a brunette. I did a movie last summer and they dyed my hair platinum – I hated it.
For years I had my hair parted down the middle in a ponytail, tucked down around the sides… Well, I went and cut the bangs, and I’ve been wearing them ever since. They say it’s my trademark.
The name of my condition is Cartilage Hair Syndrome Hypoplasia, but you can just call me Billy.
I take my hair, and I just play with it. I’ll just take my hand, I’ll mess with the front, and then I’ll just pat it on the back, and that’s it. I promise you, I don’t use hair spray, I don’t go crazy with products. I just wake up, flip it, and boom, I go bowling.
You know, I do not think it is necessarily looks, I do not think I am the prettiest girl… Everyone has something that is their asset, some have the hair, some have the cheekbones, others have the lips. But once you know what is your asset, then you should capitalize on it.
There’s a reason why Hasselhoff was in a suit for twelve years, and there’s a reason why Donald still has his hair that way. I’m tellin’ ya. They’re both sexy.
I went through a rebellious phase, and was super into doing crazy hair things. I did only wear black for my junior year of high school. I was one of those kids.
I go to the gym a lot, and I see these guys, these young actors or models there, really punishing themselves – I mean, just killing themselves. And then I’ll see one of them on a billboard, with the artfully messy hair, looking as though it’s just natural and easy to have a body like that.
Flyaway, problem hair is the enemy of feminism, and was probably invented by the Man to crush Susan Sontag.
Growing up, I was the plain one. I had no style. I was the tough kid with the comb in the back pocket and the feathered hair.
I was a tough kid with the jeans, the concert shirt with the flannel over it, the comb in the back pocket and the feathered hair.
A lesser complaint: hair extensions. There are moments on ‘All My Children’ when half the women actors, young and old, seem to be afflicted by android Barbie creep. All those thick swatches of lifeless strands clustering lankly round ladies’ necks! Like orange tanning spray, this is a fashion fad that should be put out of its misery.
I never do anything to my hair. I just wash it. It tends to get dry, so I just try to put good, natural oils in it. I do a deep conditioning mask, which is quite good.
When you get older, you have to stay a bit rock n’ roll so that young people will still be interested in you. The way you move, the way you talk, maybe the way you have your hair in your face a little bit – this keeps you interesting.
My goodness, my hair’s been talked about by a million people, you know? It sort of goes with the territory.
Almost every day, someone asks if I ever flat iron my hair. I say, ‘No, because I’m afraid it wouldn’t look good and wouldn’t come back curly.’
I’ve got the long hair and kind of androgynous look. It’s love-hate it’s sexy, but not sexy. So it’s either you get it or you don’t.
I use the Philip Kingsley range of shampoos, and they’ve got a great elasticiser, which is fantastic. I wrap my hair in cling film and put that on.
I do condition my hair with honey and beer. I smell like the bottom of a beer barrel for days afterwards, but it’s very good for the hair.
The craziest thing I’ve done is cut my hair blonde and short a couple of years ago. And people reached out to me saying, ‘Celine, you’re one of the most stable things we have in our lives, don’t do that. We want you the way you are.’
In particular I want to talk about natural black hair, and how it’s not just hair. I mean, I’m interested in hair in sort of a very aesthetic way, just the beauty of hair, but also in a political way: what it says, what it means.
You know, I just tend to grow my beard out for ‘Parks and Rec.’ As an actor it’s always easier to shave or cut your hair for a role, but it’s hard to put fake hair on or grow hair for a role. When you look at pictures of me, the longer my hair is, the longer my facial hair is, that’s just the longer I haven’t gotten a job.
Some days I don’t have time for a full workout, but I do have to dry my hair, right? So rather than just stand there blow-drying, I do several kinds of leg squats at the same time. I believe in multitasking.
I want Violet to be proud of every little thing that is her – her hair, her body. We’re all different, and from early on, I’ve always said she has a very confident personality, and I want her to maintain that.
Somebody once asked me how I found Peter Jackson, and I said: ‘Well, I parted his hair, and there he was.’
I mean, I’ve always been a libertarian. Leave everybody alone. Let everybody else do what they want. Just stay out of everybody else’s hair.
He may have hair upon his chest but, sister, so has Lassie.
I’ll have long, straight hair, like down to my back, when I go to Heaven. And I’m not even going to work out, but I’ll be in shape. It’s a whole new program up there.
If you are ever wondering, ‘If I have thinner thighs and shinier hair will I be happier?’ you just need to meet a group of models because they have the thinnest thighs and the shiniest hair and the coolest clothes and they’re the most physically insecure women on the planet.
I love wearing my hair curly, but turning the curling iron all the way up creates curls that look really made up and artificial.
When I was a kid, I wanted a Chanel bob and bangs. My mom said no. I went to the salon anyway, and they said, ‘No way – we are not going to do that to your hair.’ So I did it myself. Big mistake. Instead of my bangs going down straight, they were sticking up like a cat. It was horrible.
Someone once told me I looked good in red, so I bought every piece of clothing in red and bright-red lipstick. I had huge hair, as big as I could tease it and spray it.
I thought I’d be edgy and dye my hair red. And I dyed my hair, like, Jessica Rabbit red. It kind of allowed me to have this whole new confidence and this whole new swagger and this whole new sense of self. It kind of brought out the inner rock star in me. I had never dyed my hair like that, and no one forgot me after that.
I have some wigs at home just for fun. Throughout my years, my hair has been treated in a not very nice way, so I have to be careful.
I love rewriting because that is where and how you discover the story. It’s like you have this skeleton, and you get to put flesh on it and hair and clothes and really wonderful jewelry.
On a normal day-to-day basis, I’m makeup free, hair in a bun, and I just go.
Everybody has a bad hair day, but us girls still like to be told we look nice even if we don’t feel like we do.
I’ve never had anyone just stick their hands through my hair. Yet. If they ask, I go, ‘OK, you can, if you want to. It’s probably just going to feel like most people’s.’ I take it as a compliment.
From my own personal standpoint, I’ve always preferred my hair shorter because it’s just easier.
If they ever do my life story, whoever plays me needs lots of hair color and high heels.
I love hats, especially when you have bad hair days.
I strongly prefer to keep my hair loose and wavy, leaving it as natural as possible.
I have always used Pantene hair products since I was a child, since I was 9 or 10 years old when I began to shampoo and condition my hair. I have also always been ‘obsessed’ with the brand’s beautiful ad campaigns.
When I was a teenager, I was really into hair I dyed it different colours and had loads of haircuts. I shaved my head when I was 17 – it was pretty radical!
I was a girly-girl until I moved to New York. Then I got really into the androgynous look of the early-’90s club scene. I had really short hair and started blurring the line a bit. But for me, grade school was about Benetton, Esprit, and Guess jeans.
I dyed my hair about 42 different colours, and kids can be pretty judgmental about people who are different. But instead of breaking down and conforming, I stood firm. That is also probably why I was unhappy.
We have defined these characters – people always expect to see me in a pencil skirt. When they see me out of one – much like when they see Jon Hamm’s hair when it isn’t slick – they say, ‘Wait a minute, you’re all 2010!’
It is tricky because I do wear a lot of vintage on the red carpet, and usually when I’m getting ready, I’ll say, ‘We need to make sure that I don’t look like I’m in a Scorsese film today.’ Sometimes I do something a little bit more modern with my hair. You have to mix it up.
I was obsessed with the Canadian novel ‘Anne of Green Gables’. I decided I was Anne of Green Gables. There was something that spoke to me about her, and I wanted to have her beautiful red hair.
I have a wig for when I go outside among the regular folks, so they don’t feel uncomfortable because I have a Day-Glo color somewhere in my hair.
You know, I’ve been playing with my hair color ever since I was nine.
I understand that if I really need my hair to be nice, now I hire someone to do it, and I understand that putting on a pair of heels really makes a difference.
Hair wax is my go-to. When it comes to shampoo, I use whatever is at the rink.
Costume, hair and makeup can tell you instantly, or at least give you a larger perception of who a character is. It’s the first impression that you have of the character before they open their mouth, so it really does establish who they are.
I have a friend who, if she has a bad hair day, it affects her whole mood because it is part of her sexuality, her confidence. I don’t have that problem any more.
In high school I never went to the prom because I was too consumed with gymnastics. Also, with my hair in pigtails and looking about 10, I wasn’t exactly date material.
I’m not high maintenance, and I’m not into a highly manicured man. I don’t want to see a lot of hair product.
So I begged, half way into season two, for them to let me cut my hair.
I have a lot of looks but right now I’m really into grunge. Messy hair, black heels. I get Michelle Pfeiffer with it.
I feel like everyone should dye their hair a weird color. If you hate it, you can just dye it back.
You start noticing that people are noticing how you look, and it is a profoundly alienating experience when it first happens, where you go on TV and you say something about some topic of the day, and on the Internet people are like, ‘What was up with that shirt?’ ‘What was up with your hair?’ And you think, ‘Oh, that’s kind of a bummer.’
There was a misconception about me when I started off because I had my hair greased up and I have some vague resemblance to the hillbilly gene pool that Elvis came from. People would say, ‘You want to be Elvis’ and I would say, ‘No’.
I don’t spend as much time on my hair as people think. I get out of the shower, whack some grease on there and I’m done.
I have long hair because I’m American Indian. I’m an Oklahoma boy, and I’m very proud of my heritage.
I’ve waited my whole life to be able to have body hair – but I never thought I’d have back hair. But what are you going to do, right?
I got rid of my glasses and they changed my hair. That’s really all they did. They went shopping for me, so the clothes are different too. It wasn’t like Extreme Makeover where I got a nose job or anything.
Actresses are so spoilt – we have someone who does our hair for us on set, so we don’t know how to do it ourselves in real life. I know how to wash my hair and brush my teeth, but that’s about it!
I was blessed with blonde hair and a baby face – well, I don’t know if you’d call that blessed – I don’t even remember when I started shaving.
You let the hair down, and that’s when the wild man comes out.
It was a huge shock. I’ve never had hair that short in my life! I think the rest of the cast and crew were mourning my haircut more than I was! But after a while, I felt liberated, I learned to embrace it.
It was in the ’80s, so I guess big hair and high bangs. And I had so many gummy bracelets! While we were doing ‘Full House,’ we were like, ‘You know, in 10 years, we’re going to look back on this and think this is horrible.’ But everyone looked like that!
I had a moment in the Library of Congress among the presidential papers. I opened a folder, and there was an envelope in it. The front of the envelope was facing the table, so I didn’t know what was in it. I opened it and out spilled all this hair. I turned the envelop over and it says, ‘Clipped from President Garfield’s head on his deathbed.’
I like my hair long, and I love my bangs. I love them because I can pin them back or keep the fringe with attitude.
People always want you to look pretty. I would like to live in the Midwest in a small town and never put makeup on. But they won’t let you do that. Once I went through a period when I did do that, wore no makeup, wore my hair any which way, and people looked at me like I was a bum.
I woke up one day and wanted to change my look. And I was like, ‘Okay, what are you going to do about it?’ I said, ‘I’m going lose 30 pounds, I’m going to get a little lipo, and I’m going to get a Monroe piercing, and I’m going to cut my hair. I’m going to get totally wild.’
Everyone should have hair. When you get dressed up, you must do that last whip of hair spray, or life’s not worth living.
Girls can wear jeans, cut their hair short, wear shirts and boots, ’cause it’s okay to be a boy, but for a boy to look like a girl is degrading.
During my days as a soccer player, my teammates used to call me ‘Touch’ because I have a touch of blonde hair on my forehead which is a birth mark. But now swimming is my favourite sport.
I usually go to Lush for hair products. I had no idea that this existed, but they have a shampoo rock, and it looks like a bar of soap, and I was tripping out when they told me it was a shampoo, so that’s pretty sweet.
I’m kind of lax about hair in general. I stopped shaving my armpits in part to experiment with pheromones, but also because I just didn’t feel like shaving them anymore.
Every job I’ve had since ‘Smallville’ has wanted me to have red hair, so I have to thank ‘Smallville’ for that. But, just the fact that it was so different was appealing to me. As an actor, you want to be able to play a lot of different things.
I was teased up until high school about my hair, being short, my high pitched voice, and just anything you can think of.
My hair is too fine to bleach. I get so much breakage, it’s not worth it to dye it.
I was born in Boston, but then I went down to Virginia. We spent a little time in Maryland, and then were in Virginia by the time I was seven. What struck me the most was that my mother thought that she had gone to the middle of nowhere, and we would still drive four hours for her to get her hair cut in Washington, D.C.
I’m a very outgoing person. I’m always happy, I’m one of those people who are always smiling. If somebody described me to somebody else, they’d say the kid with the curly hair with the big smile on his face. I get along with everybody.
One of the strangest things about being an actor is that people you don’t know feel that they are allowed to comment on your hair, body, clothes, relationships.
My hair does get really frizzy, so I use a de-frizzing serum from Bumble and Bumble, and also Moroccan Oil is some really good stuff. Plus, I can’t live without my Burt’s Bees lip balm!
I really love diving in, head first, with directing and not having to worry about hair, makeup or lines.
Southland’ is very real it’s not about who found the hair in the bed. There are procedural aspects to it, but it’s not about that.
I look fine. I’ve had no surgery apart from an operation I had decades ago to remove the fat under my eyes. My mum looked 30 when she was 60, so I guess I owe it all to genes and hair dye.
I like to have my hair grow, because I need to have hair for different roles. But I’m a woman, so I’m always cutting my hair off and wishing that I hadn’t.
When Clinton first appeared on the national stage back in 1992, the young wife of the Arkansas governor running for president, she kept her natural-brown hair off her face with a headband.
I used to be very insecure about my curly hair, because I lived in a country where everybody had blonde straight hair.
I am a fast dresser, 30 minutes max with hair and makeup. I don’t have a uniform, but I like to be comfortable.
If I hadn’t been a woman, I’d be a drag queen for sure. I like all that flair and I’d be dressing up in them high heels and putting on the big hair. I’d be like Ru Paul.
Someone once asked me, ‘How long does it take to do your hair.’ I said, ‘I don’t know, I’m never there.’
On TV people look at your hair and then they look at your skin, and then they look at your clothes, and by the time they’re listening to what you’re saying, you’re off the screen.
When I was a kid, I always wanted to dye my hair crazy colors.
George Carlin is kind of my template now because George Carlin before was straight laced regular comic and he had short hair, a tie, suit, nightclub guy. Then he said screw it, let his hair grow, just started telling what he thought was the truth. So that’s what I’m trying to do.
I’ve been cutting my hair ever since college. I try to do that whenever it gets rough. I’m not too cheap to go the barber shop, but I mostly try to do that by myself. I try to keep my skills sharp.
In England we burnt redheads at the stake, because we thought they were witches. There are still young redheads in Britain getting ripped for having red hair. ‘Oy, Ginger!’
I’m about 5′ 10, and my hair is the length of my whole body now. We grow our hair because of faith, but it’s getting heavy. Most of the rastas I know with hair my length are elders, and they keep it tied up, but for a young person who’s active and running around, the weight is a big thing. So to play sports, I put it in a backpack.
There are a lot of people who do a lot of things to be outrageous with fashion, hair or makeup.
An actress in a film starts every day with an hour and a half in front of a mirror, with hair and make-up and costumes.
Bill Clinton sitting on Air Force One getting his hair cut while people around the country cooled their heels and waited for him, became a metaphor for a populist president who had gotten drunk with the perks of his own power and was sort of, you know, not sensitive to what people wanted.
I’ve never wanted anybody to like me because I had long hair or short hair, or that they liked the way I dressed or they liked the way I dressed or they liked the way I smile.
I had my shortcomings – crazy hair, braces, bad skin and all that stuff. I went through it all.
But quite honestly, personally, I was much more concerned – I mean, there’s not much I can do about my appearance obviously other than spending four hours in hair and makeup.
I’ve always had the hair of Lionel Ritchie since I was a boy, but the mullet sadly is a hairpiece. My wife won’t let me rock that hairstyle.
Playing mother to grown-up kids does not allure me much. I will not feel comfortable. Also, my fans will not like me with grey hair.
One of my favorite episodes was the one in which Homer grew hair. That was a very unique episode, since there was a gay secretary, but that wasn’t even the issue of the show-the issue was Homer’s image changing because he had hair.
See, my strumpf is in my hair. Now, I don’t know what strumpf means. It’s just a term some brothas gave me.
I first read ‘The Scarlet Letter’ when I was fifteen. In it, I found a familiar vision of religious intolerance to the one around me. I grew up in the 1980s, when televangelists, with their fluffed up hair and their tears, self-righteously denounced all kinds of sinners, reserving a special, full-throated enthusiasm for gay people.
I was distressed by the poor quality of the debate surrounding energy. I was also noticing so much green wash from politicians and big business. I was tired of the debate – the extremism, the nimbyism, the hair shirt. We need a constructive conversation about energy, not a Punch and Judy show. I just wanted to try to reboot the whole debate.
I lost some weight, grew my hair and now every woman in America over 40 wants to date me. It’s their daughters I want to convince.
I got into my very theatrical phase. I wore only black: a big black hat and wild hair and wild black clothes, and I carried a sword stick. I went there still looking like Miss Florida, and I came back looking very different.
I always had long hair. When you lose it, you realise just how important it is to your identity.
I love having my hair back. It is so important to how you feel, how you dress, how you look.
As a fair skinned blonde, I disappeared into the background. I’ve always been a loner, so I suppose dyeing my hair red was a way to say, ‘I’m here, I exist, I’m a human being and you can’t just push me aside.’
I think the ’90s is the reason why I recently had to find natural haircare products to allow my hair to grow. That was a time where they were processing your hair, and it was a time when African-American women wanted that straight hair.
I knew I was Chinese, but growing up, it never occurred to me that that had any particular implication or that it should differentiate me in any way. I thought it was a minor detail, like having red hair.
Sunday night is curry night. I always order a spinach paneer and a chicken tikka. There’s usually something good on TV like ‘Mr Selfridge’ or ‘Downton Abbey,’ so I’ll watch them before I have to think about blowdrying my hair and all the other boring stuff us girls have to do!
From sixth grade on I was a real Pillsbury doughboy. Overweight, long hair, thick glasses.
I’m always trying to push the envelope and go with a different hairstyle that you’re not going to see on anybody else. I have a really good grade of hair, and I can do a lot of different things with it.
When I walked into the room to meet Michael Landon, it was clear he was a big-time star. To be around him was as far from Charles Ingalls as you could get. The hair was the same – no one touched his hair.
I’ve had years of teasing about my red hair, but I definitely think it toughened me up. If you’re ginger, you end up pretty quick-witted.
I used to be obsessed with Pearl Jam, but I love having pink hair and kind of looking like a Barbie.
I’m never happy with my face, my hair, I haven’t really got any boobs and I’m not really that tall.
I’ve changed the way I look a bit but not intentionally. I’ve cut my hair. I’ve got a bit of pink in it and lately I’ve become a bit monochrome, wearing a lot of black and white.
I had no portrait, now, but am small, like the wren and my hair is bold, like the chestnut bur and my eyes, like the sherry in the glass, that the guest leaves.
I find the whole concept of being ‘sexy’ embarrassing and confusing. If I do a photo-shoot, people desperately want to change me – dye my hair blonder, pluck my eyebrows, give me a fringe. Then there’s the choice of clothes. I know everyone wants a picture of me in a mini-skirt. But that’s not me.
As I’ve got older, and since I cut all my hair off, I’ve felt a bit more liberated about trying different things out.
Bolivia’s majority Indian population was always excluded, politically oppressed and culturally alienated. Our national wealth, our raw materials, was plundered. Indios were once treated like animals here. In the 1930s and 40s, they were sprayed with DDT to kill the vermin on their skin and in their hair whenever they came into the city.
As Erykah Badu, it has nothing to do with me, the way I look, my hair wrap, my style, it’s about you and what you feel for my music. If I can make you feel like the way that people who influenced me made me feel, that’s completion.
The more I mistreat my hair, the stronger it grows back. I think it must be determined to survive.
I keep my hair gray, so I like silver and platinum. For women who dye their hair, they can wear whatever they want.
I’ve learned all my hair and makeup tricks on the set, and I incorporate all kinds of things when I’m getting ready, and I’m big on blotting papers. I get a very shiny forehead, which I like to call my inner glow coming out.
I had a nice, pert nose but a plain round face and a mop of curly brown hair. That was not the photograph of a successful model.
Guys usually like a very natural look. I think it’s bad idea to wear a strong lip on a first date – or for the first few dates. I’m always too nervous he’ll kiss it off – if I’m lucky enough to get a kiss! I also think soft, sexy hair is important.
You can put in a curl or put on a lip color or mascara, but the important thing is that the health of your skin and hair is shining through.
I make sure the foods I eat will benefit the appearance of my hair, skin and nails.
Backstage at the Victoria’s Secret show is pure madness. Big personalities, big hair, and tons of press.
When I first began modeling, I was very conventional looking. I had hair down to my waist in a side parting – almost church-like. But beneath the sheath of hair lay this Amazonian, strong-looking frame.
My hair is an untidy bob. I am very dark, but I embellish the roots because I am white in one clump.
Black Friday is not another bad hair day in Wall Street. It’s the term used by American retailers to describe the day after the Thanksgiving Holiday, seen as the semi-official start of Christmas shopping season.
I am an old geezer: a grandpa kind of a guy. I was born October 19, 1931. I have gray hair, a beard, and a little pot belly. I have two children who are over 30 years old and a sweet little granddaughter who is 11 years old.
I don’t know about the hair. I’ve had it since I was a kid, and when I look at myself in the mirror, it looks quite normal. But then when I look at myself in a photo, I realise that my hair is basically bigger than my head! There’s quite a lot of interest in my hair, which is strange, as for me, it’s normal!
The hair department is always on my case about washing my hair. I am incredibly lazy, and a brat about washing my hair.
I use my Bionic flat iron and hair dryer, all shampoo and conditioners are sulfate free, and keep the blow-drys to a minimum. If I can go two to three or even four days without washing my hair, I’ll just go for it. I know, sounds gross, but otherwise, I’d be frying my hair.
The funny thing about voice over is you can go in in sweatpants and have your hair all messed up, and no one will see you, and you can still deliver the same great product.
I love being super-tough, but if I need to put on a dress and do my hair and makeup, I can do that, too.
I don’t wash my hair very often. Once a week if I can. Because the more you wash it, you end up stripping out the natural oils. What I like to do is just rinse out the products that I’ve used during the week and then put leave-in conditioner in and let it dry naturally.
When I was young, I wanted to be the face of a makeup campaign or a hair campaign, so that’s something that I’ve always dreamed of that hopefully comes along. And then obviously starring with Ryan Gosling in a movie wouldn’t be so bad, either.
I was a tomboy as a kid – I was skinny and had cropped hair and was often mistaken for a boy – and up until I was about six, I had my own very fluid ideas of gender in that I believed that, somehow, an individual could choose whether or not s/he wanted to be a boy or a girl.
When I was modeling in Japan, I could blend in a little because of my hair, but my roommates with blonde hair got harassed. People would touch their hair and grope them in the subway. Actually, a lot of groping happens in the subway in Japan, but that’s probably true of subways everywhere.
Moisture, moisture, moisture is the key to maintaining our hair. I use water-based products and try to put something on my hair every day. I pay special attention to my edges, as they are so fragile.
My natural hair is short and naturally grows to frame my face. So that’s my favorite. I also like tree-braids. They’re easy, fast, there’s not much pulling on your hair, and they are very lightweight.
I used to break a lot of clubs. I probably was a little different than your average junior player. I did have a lot longer hair and a lot more brown hair. But my demeanor, you know, really from maybe my second, third year on Tour, has gotten a lot more even keel.
I didn’t realize that everyone was so attracted to my hair. I thought, well what about my music?
The woman with dark hair, wide hips, and a few extra pounds has always been the essence of beauty in Morocco.
I go to the hamam and put henna on my skin and hair. Even when I go to New York, I let the shower run hot to create a steam hamam at my hotel. But when I finish with the bath, I put on expensive French creams.
I actually studied literature at university, so I’m much more of an arts-based person, but I remember I actually did enjoy physics because you got to do weird experiments. I remember we did this thing with static where we all had to put our hands on this static ball to see that your hair would all stand on end.
I actually always had short hair as a kid, and it’s really liberating. I recommend it. It’s just very easy. I don’t have to brush it.
When I was much younger, I sometimes felt rejected by feminists because of an image that I sold because it paid the bills. Any fool could tell my hair is dyed.
It’s nice not to have lines when you frown, especially on TV. I don’t know why people make such a fuss about it. No one is interested if a woman has her teeth capped or her hair dyed.
Writing a novel is a terrible experience, during which the hair often falls out and the teeth decay.
If you asked me to go back to being 14 or 15, I couldn’t – it was a terrifying time. I was so awkward in my own skin. I used to hide behind my hair because I was so ridiculously self-conscious.
When I first started, especially because I got the Critics’ Choice before I’d released an album, there was a lot of scrutiny on what my character was, what my background was, what colour my hair was. I fought quite hard for the music to overtake the personality aspect.
When you doubt one thing about yourself, you start thinking there’s also something wrong with your hair, your body, your clothes, your accent.
For some reason, I wrote about the bed we slept in when I was a kid. It was a half-acre of misery, that bed, sagging in the middle, red hair sticking out of the mattress, the spring gone and the fleas leaping all over the place.
We didn’t gel with Poison and the Bon Jovi. Bon Jovi was the best of the pop metal bands, but we never fit in with the hair metal stuff. We were never as hip as the Chili Peppers. We were in the middle.
I wouldn’t say I’m vain – I’m just in a job where the way you look is important. Well, at least the facelift wasn’t vanity, but the hair was.
When I get a new script, I write a record of how many costume and make-up changes I have. I cross-check them against the shooting schedule and then consult with the hair and make-up designers.
The industry is quite chauvinistic generally. Expectations of women, girls, what they should look like, how they should be, what they should say, what they should wear, how their hair should be, what colour their skin should be.
I don’t want to be about the way I look – my body, my hair, my makeup, all those boring things.
You forget how many people watch TV until you come into a town like this. Everybody knows you, and I’m always humbled, especially when there are 500 little kids who all have their hair done like yours and want to be designers.
Basically, my hair is very dry from all the backcombing! Hairdressers prefer if your hair is dry and damaged, as it makes it easier to style.
My wedding was at home, so I didn’t really want to wear a veil in my house. Instead I wore a lot of diamond hair clips. They were brooches, actually, designed by Lorraine Schwartz.
Let the devil catch you but by a single hair, and you are his forever.
At home I wear my own clothes, no makeup and don’t do anything exciting with my hair. I get to borrow pretty dresses for the red carpet and have experts do my hair and makeup.
Because of my job, my hair gets played with a lot on set, so I try to give it little bit of breathing space when I’m not working.
When I’m not working, I’m really, really low key. I don’t wear makeup unless I have to I don’t get my hair done unless I really need to.
I don’t know, so much of women’s femininity is tied up with their hair.
I was 19 or 20 when The Beatles were at their peak, and I was coming up to the peak of my career, too. I was also the first footballer to have long hair, and that’s how I got my nickname ‘the Fifth Beatle.’
You don’t want to try to look younger, because you’ll look wrong. You dye your hair, you look wrong. You wear a bad toupee, you look wrong. You wear makeup to hide things, you get your eyes done, you look wrong.
I’m the least metrosexual cat you’ve ever met. I’ve never had my fingernails or toenails done, and I’ve cut my own hair longer than other people have cut my hair.
A few dozen changes to the genome of a modern elephant – to give it subcutaneous fat, woolly hair and sebaceous glands – might suffice to create a variation that is functionally similar to the mammoth. Returning this keystone species to the tundras could stave off some effects of warming.
So many of the kids on television have really nice clothes, perfect skin and hair.
When I was younger, I had pink underneath my hair, and I got detention. I went to an all-girls school where you wore a uniform, and pink hair was not OK.
I don’t really have the patience to do my hair, which is why it’s always parted down the middle, slicked, in a low ponytail or a messy high bun. I’m too lazy to do my own hair, but I like doing my makeup.
When I was a teenager, I was fat. I was shy. I wore glasses. I had a big eyebrow and hair all over my body. They were years of torture.
I usually do my hair and makeup in 30 to 45 minutes, and if my hair is dirty, I’ll just put it in a bun or a ponytail. If it’s in a bun, I’ll part it down the middle and do a low bun with a couple pieces in the front coming down.
I like experimenting with different hair care, and when I get sick of it, I always mix it up. Ghd makes this mousse that I add to John Frieda’s Frizz Ease, and it makes a ponytail hold really well.
And one of the things that I learned was you can’t generalise at all about a woman in a veil. You can’t think you know her story, because she will confound you over and over again. She may be an engineer or a diplomat or a doctor. Or she may be an unbelievable babe with bleached hair down to her waist.
I remember when ‘Grease’ came out, I used to force my mum to try and grease my hair back, and it was never long enough, and literally I’d be screaming at her, ‘Do it. Just do it!’.
It was very painful combing my hair. My grand-uncle was a Pentecostal bishop, and he was very strict: our hair couldn’t be permed or straightened. So I just cut it all off.
I usually tell people upfront what to expect, and that I really want their feedback and their ideas, and if they think I’ve got a hair out of place or food stuck in my teeth, gosh, I want to know that.
I love my work with a frenetic and perverse love, as an ascetic loves the hair shirt which scratches his belly.
I’ve been using the same hair wax for as long as I can remember. I’m not a gel guy, I’m not a perfume guy, not really into any of that.
If you are AC/DC, you don’t get credit for slow songs. And if you are doing a show about food with a blond dude with crazy blond hair and tattoos who drives a hot rod, of course everyone is going to think everything you eat is deep-fried.
I don’t colour my hair, and I look like the back end of a bus, so I get asked to play old people.
I do have bad hair days. If I fall asleep with it slightly damp, I wake up and it’ll all be piled up on top in a mess.
It’s very hard when you do photocalls. You have to be on time, you have to be all cheesy smiles, and have your hair and make-up done, and be into it. It’s not like a photoshoot. You have to really put the cheese factor in. I think you have to be more willing to go for it.
After I grew some facial hair, I looked a bit older, and I guess that’s what the modeling world wanted because I started booking more luxury brands.
There’s no white comic that sells tickets to black people like me. They’re going to get their hair done, get a new outfit, and come out to see a white dude.
When you’re a teenage girl, a lot of being pretty has to do with your hair.
Men can’t do much to change we have to wear suits, although I never wear a tie, apart from in Asia sometimes. So I decided to grow my hair.
Acting is all about big hair and funny props… All the great actors knew it. Olivier knew it, Brando knew it.
I would have liked to grow up in Liverpool and become a rocker. I would have put my boots on, jeans and a leather jacket, and long hair and played the guitar.
All a woman needs is a good bath, clean clothes, and for her hair to be combed. These things she can do herself. I very seldom go to the hairdresser, but when I do, I just marvel.
Dirt makes a man look masculine. Let your hair blow in the wind, and all that. It’s OK. All you have to do is look neat when you have to look neat.
My motto is to go wild on the accessories – the belts, the hair clips, the jewelery.
Hair that gleams can send a clear sign that you’re young and in your prime, whatever your actual age.
Hair that looks like it’s been naturally sun-bleached makes you seem youthful, like you spend a lot of time outdoors. And that appeals to most people.
This is my own little rock theory: In my mind, Nirvana slayed the hair bands. They shot the top off the poodles.
Death metal uses a lot of white face paint and black hair dye to make its point. I quite enjoy this genre for its intensity, extremism and underlying irony: You have to be alive to play it and listen to it.
Many years ago, I concluded that a few hair shirts were part of the mental wardrobe of every man. The president differs from other men in that he has a more extensive wardrobe.
When my hair was shorter, I used to get it done every couple of days… but I got tired of that.
Every president, if you watch what they look like when they come into office, you can see their hair turn white because it’s such a hard job.
I think good-looking people seldom make good television. And American television studios almost concede before they start: ‘Well, it won’t be good, but at least it’ll be good-looking. We’ll have nice-looking girls in tight shirts with F.B.I. badges and fit-looking guys with lots of hair gel vaulting over things.’
Number one is that it just scares people! Your hair is standing up on your arms, or at least that there’s a few moments when you’re jumping. That’s what makes it a good horror movie.
When I was younger, I was very princessy. I always wanted to be blond-haired and blue-eyed. This was before Mulan, so I was very upset about all the Cinderellas. I always tried to imagine that maybe Snow White was Chinese since she had black hair.
Men’s fame is like their hair, which grows after they are dead, and with just as little use to them.
Throughout my life, I’ve known that if I change my hair, if I change my look, people I know will blank me in the street.
I’m not really into makeup, not really into fuffing with hair and stuff.
My hair has been this chapter thing for me. In ‘Jem,’ I have blue hair. ‘Insidious,’ it’s pink. In ‘CSI,’ I have blonde. I love changing my hair. It’s just hair and it grows all the time.
Like most dancers, I love lip stains! We hate gloss because hair gets stuck in it.
The whole series is black-and-white, so when I went to shoot one of the women I only had black-and-white film with me. She had reddish hair and was a very pretty girl, a nice girl.
It’s how you look at beauty. Is it only an outward appearance with hair and makeup and a hot body, or is it something deeper than that?
If I had to name one thing that probably causes more conflict within the band, it’s probably the fact that I’m the girl, and it takes much longer with hair and makeup and wardrobe. But they’ve gotten used to it. It’s one of those things I think they realize that when they say she’ll be ready in 10 minutes, it normally means 15 or 20.
I enjoy flitting around between hair colours. I find it fascinating when people think I’m naturally blonde, as I’ve only been blonde for about two seconds. People pay more attention to you as a blonde it’s also easier for people to assume you’re a ditsy young actress. Of course, I am a ditsy young actress – well, maybe not ditsy.
I’m lucky because I had blonde hair for a while for this TV show I was doing – they had me dye my hair blonde – and every audition I was going out for was bleach blonde. The mean girl, the pretty girlfriend, and the dumb cheerleader.
If you want to change your hair colour or your nail colour or things like that its fine, but you have to realize the dangers and repercussions of surgery.
I was terribly gawky, too goofy to become a high-kicking cheerleader, with stringy brown hair and bad posture. Definitely nobody noticeable!
I notice that most of the men who tease me about my hair, don’t have any.
I always had a short bob with bangs, and I hated it. My mum would always say, ‘A short hair cut is always the way to go for you.’ I had it for fourteen years!
I think Eggs looks great, with his mucky face with dirt all over it and greasy hair. He’s the ideal boy Boxtroll, really. It’s quite difficult to capture a boy who’s grown up as a Boxtroll. So, he looks good.
I don’t own a blow-dryer – I don’t know how to use it. Most mornings, I walk to work with my hair wet.
I was born with a love of animals, the same way I was born with brown hair. When I was a little girl in Rome, I always had pets, which I adored.
What is good hair? It can be anything to anyone. Good hair is healthy hair, whatever you perceive that to be.
I love magazines. I always read ‘Time,’ ‘Newsweek’ and ‘The Economist.’ When I get my hair cut, French ‘Vogue,’ French ‘Elle,’ ‘Paris Match’ – I read them all in 10 minutes.
I like to maintain a certain sense of fantasy. At home, do I have the full hair and makeup? No. But I might have the nice dress on.
To be with the others, you have to have your hair short and wear ties. So we’re trying to make a third world happen, you know what I mean?
But there’s so much kludge, so much terrible stuff, we are at the 1908 Hurley washing machine stage with the Internet. That’s where we are. We don’t get our hair caught in it, but that’s the level of primitiveness of where we are. We’re in 1908.
For me, hair is an accoutrement. Hair is jewelry. It’s an accessory.
My hair has never been my greatest feature, so that was funny enough unto itself that my hair became so focused on.
The real color of my hair is mouse. I always want to be ginger, which I was when I was born, or blond, because I live in L.A., and I want to look like I go surfing without any physical effort.
Yes, exercise is the catalyst. That’s what makes everything happen: your digestion, your elimination, your sex life, your skin, hair, everything about you depends on circulation. And how do you increase circulation?
Take care of yourself by eating right, sleeping right, and exercising regularly! These are the only rules I swear by. If you follow this religiously and use the right products, your skin and hair will thank you.
I enjoy hats. And when one has filthy hair, that is a good accessory.
I’ve seen plenty of films where the projector broke. The problems that we have in the digital age are exactly the same as we had. Instead of, ‘There’s a hair in the gate,’ it’s, ‘The computer ate the footage.’ There will always be things like that going on. Nothing is perfect.
I colour my hair mousy brown and I wear makeup only on stage. I use Laura Mercier – something called Biscuit, I think. I run one tiny sponge over my face and cover the red blotches. If I’ve got some rouge, I’ll bung it on my mouth and cheeks.
When I got into the music industry, I wasn’t focused on being the most famous artist or even getting a major record deal. It was just to make music on my own terms or create my own image, do my own hair, do my own makeup.
By age seven, I used to comb my hair for performances, just pull my hair up into a bun. Granted, it wasn’t a very intricate hairstyle. Still, to be that responsible and disciplined at age seven is unusual.
I’m lying in my bed, blanket is warm, this body will never keep me safe from harm. I still feel your hair, black ribbons of coal. Touch my skin to keep me whole. If only you’d come back to me. To feel you at my side, wouldn’t need no Mojo Pin to keep me satisfied.
I was going to buy a book on hair loss, but the pages kept falling out.
I recorded my hair this morning, tonight I’m watching the highlights.
Because the heart beats under a covering of hair, of fur, feathers, or wings, it is, for that reason, to be of no account?
On my own I generally have very messy hair, wear jeans and sneakers.
In the end, punk inevitably burned itself out and acted as a bridge across which the New Romantics could sashay in their chiffon and glossy hair.
I can’t see any difference in having your hair dyed, your teeth fixed, your nose done, or your face smoothed out or lifted.
It’s like those high-school yearbook photos that everyone would rather not see: Oh my God, look at that mullet hair. I have those photos too, but for me, they’re, like, entire movies. And they show them on cable.
For days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow, but phone calls taper off.
For three days after death, hair and fingernails continue to grow but phone calls taper off.
When I was growing up, I always thought my hair was messy.
I guess if I wrote a book one day, it would be about hair.
I always have a beard between jobs. I just let it grow until they pay me to shave it. People are quite surprised it’s ginger. Sometimes they ask me if dye my hair and I always say ‘Wow, no!’ I’m ‘trans-ginger.’
Mitt Romney – he had a Rock Hudson thing going, shoeblack hair and a well-hung resume, but even for a shameless, position-shifting phony he seemed a trifle insincere.
When I was growing up in Chicago, my family and I used to go to a local chain, Hackney’s, for burgers and their French fried onion loaf. I probably haven’t been to one in 25 years, and yet, I once saw Donald Trump from behind in an office building and the first thing that flashed in my mind was his hair looked like that onion loaf.
I get my highlights touched up with Susan Henry at Shades in Beverly Hills. She developed hypo-allergenic hair color products with no ammonia because she’s allergic to others she’s an incredible colorist. She does balayage instead of the foils, and I’ll go and she will do my entire head of highlights in an hour.
My hair looks so good out in the desert, it’s unbelievable. It’s, like, perfectly not frizzy.
I am a very honest person, and I can only say there are moments in my life where I really did think I was being me in the sense of my morals and beliefs and the way I acted. But when I look back at certain things that I wore and my hair and make-up, I was like, ‘Whoa! That wasn’t me!’ But I didn’t know it back then.
I was my thinnest when doing 35 fashion shows a week in different countries because I didn’t have time to eat. I’ve never bought the idea that models in fashion magazines cause readers to have anorexia and bulimia. And you can’t be a model if you’ve got those conditions anyway, because you’ll get acne and hair all over your body.
My long, blonde hair has been my trademark ever since I started modelling in the Seventies, when I was scouted sunbathing in St Tropez.
My hair can get quite dry, so I condition it in olive oil once a week.
I used to live in a gap jumper, tracksuit bottoms and a fake flower in my hair. Shocking.
I am wondering when – if – I have to cut my hair. I think it looks terrible if you have really long hair and it’s gone gray. So I am experimenting with wearing it up. Up, with pearls. I think that’s quite a good look.
Benji usually tries to match his hair with his underwear, and you know how he had the pink hair for a while well we caught him in a pink thong one day!
Why pour shampoo into a rabbit’s eyes to see how much shampoo you can put in an adult’s eyes before they go blind? I’ll put them in my hair, in my eyes before I would give them to anyone else.
Most of the people interviewing me are far more square than me. I think it’s the ET thing. I’m sitting there, my hair is combed, and I’m in a suit.
I’m not a natural redhead, but I enjoy having red hair.
I have so much hair, so straightening takes a long time. I mean, if I look at photos of myself with straight hair, it’s hilarious. I look like a different person.
I want a part where I can use my own hair, my own voice, and maybe even be literate.
So much of my body changed from being pregnant. My hair got so much longer from all of the multivitamins and pregnancy vitamins, like the New Chapter’s Every Woman Vitamin I’ve been taking – it’s a lot of folic acid. I know a lot of moms cut their hair, but I just want to keep mine long.
I don’t like men who blow-dry their hair. If you are a man and you blow-dry your hair, then I don’t like you and that’s all there is to it.
I’m a ‘frotteur,’ someone who likes to rub words in his hand, to turn them around and feel them, to wonder if that really is the best word possible. Does that word in this sentence have any electric potential? Does it do anything? Too much electricity will make your reader’s hair frizzy. There’s a question of pacing.
People say women shouldn’t have long hair over a certain age, but I’ve never done what everyone says.
As a young girl, I definitely struggled with knowing what to do with my hair. I was just in a neighborhood that had mostly white people, and the hair norm was long and sleek and straight. My hair naturally was curly, and I didn’t have that many references.
When I was younger, I thought that straight hair was, like, the only thing. So I was trying to be like Naomi Campbell or Tyra Banks. I didn’t know that people would add hair for more length. I’m like, ‘Oh all these people just have natural hair like this.’ I obviously grew up and figured out that everyone does something to their hair.
When I was a young girl, I wasn’t always trying to have curly hair.
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a little sweat. I’m always moving, so it’s normal for me, and it actually makes my curly hair better because it gives it a bit more texture and volume.
I think anytime with your mom, whether she’s famous or not, you’re watching what she’s doing when you’re growing up. She also taught me the basics: Make sure you use a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, and then use a detangler to comb through your hair. And don’t overdo the heat styling.
Once I learned that some hydrating oil or cream was good for my hair, I thought I should use a lot. So I poured practically a bottle on my head once and learned real fast that more isn’t always better. I was so greasy, and it ruined my texture!
I’ve always idolized Diana Ross’s hair. Why not have fun, big curls? You see the same sleek waves everywhere.
It’s definitely a little bit ironic being known for my hair because, as a little girl, I had no idea what I was doing with it. I was insecure about it. I didn’t have as many references to curly girls, and I wanted to just fit in with all my other friends.
I think for women, especially women of colour, hair has so much to do with our identity and our confidence levels. I’ve made a conscious choice after growing up and feeling insecure and trying to achieve this look that actually wasn’t me, where I’ve finally stopped relaxing my hair and went back to my natural texture.
Elizabeth Taylor taught me that if you do your hair and makeup first then take a hot bath right before you leave, it brings out your inner glow and takes away the powdery look from makeup. I do that right before every date.
I dyed my hair blonde in that movie, so my head doesn’t match my grill.
On the red carpet, I’m playing a character. As soon as I get off that thing, I think, ‘Oof, wipe that gloss off.’ I’m wiping and wiping and pulling my hair out and trying to change my outfit. I’m immediately trying to get comfortable. It’s really a part I play.
If you look over the years, the styles have changed – the clothes, the hair, the production, the approach to the songs. The icing to the cake has changed flavors. But if you really look at the cake itself, it’s really the same.
I had an idea for a story about a young woman who was living with people who were different, not just superficially different – such as hair colour, or eye colour, or skin colour – but different in some significant way.
And when power ballads come back, we’ll get big hair again.
I still go to a salon where a gal does my hair, and I don’t know if it’s because I’m a celebrity but by the time I leave there, we are eating chicken and talking and screaming.
I used to have hair so long, my nickname was Pocahontas.
If you don’t physically age gracefully, it’s a bit sad. I think Steven Tyler can get away anything, because he still looks like he did in ’73. Especially from row Z backwards in an arena. As long as the Stones keep their hair and don’t get fat they’ll get away with the wrinkles.
On the first season of our show, I commissioned a Native American artist to make up, ’cause I’m known for the tomahawk, besides the hair and the leather outfit and the whole thing.
I’m still the way I’ve always been. Lots of hair and eyes, a bit Raquel Welch-ish.
They kept me in short pants as long as they could, until they were shaving the hair on my legs because it was beginning to photograph.
I’ve dyed my hair a million times and it looks terrible, always. It just looks fake. And it doesn’t make me look that much younger.
I felt like the dark hair added like a toughness to my face also, which was really important.
What I remember most about junior homecoming was my date getting sick afterwards. That kinda sucked. Then, senior year, someone got gum in her hair when we were dancing. She had to get one of the chaperones to take her to the office and cut up her hair. I felt really bad for her, but it worked out fine.
So, I’m going to go over on Angel. Joss is just going to find a way to keep me bleaching my hair, which is fine.
I practically lived in the woods when I was a kid, avoiding grown-ups and my dysfunctional family, pretending I was half-wolf, a feral child who napped in nests made out of ferns, ate wild blueberries, and wove sticks and feathers into her hair.
We filmed ‘Labyrinth’ in South Africa for two and a half months and it was just the most unbelievable experience. Lots of sword fighting, mud in hair and lots of weeping! It’s very different from ‘Downton’ because I was going to work and having mud put in my hair – it’s the other extreme of the look!
The thing that I enjoy about animation is the fact that it is unbridled, and there are no boundaries when you are in the room, you don’t have to focus on your clothing, make-up, hair, your choreography or your blocking you really do have total freedom.
When I do my concerts, you have got to think about everything else so you have got to think about your gown, your hair, your body, and how you present yourself on stage.
I was inspired by Colin Farrell in the fact that he’s Irish and has freckles but with black hair. I’m a bunch of different things, Irish, Polish, Native American, and French, but I wanted to tap into that Irish side and be freckle-y with black hair, so that’s what I did.
I like Pantene shampoo and conditioner because my hair is so straight, and I find it gives me a little lift.
I rarely use product in my hair, and when I do I have no idea which ones, nor does it matter all that much to me. And I can’t remember the last time I even used a comb, much less carried one around.
Yorkshire weather can turn quickly. At one Auld Lang Syne race, it dropped to -16C. The frost turned everybody’s hair grey. I couldn’t take my shoes off, as my laces had frozen solid.
My husband and I are in preproduction of three movies, a Latin show, and a children’s animation. I’m doing a very unique nail polish line, and finally, I’m developing a hair care line because people always ask me about my hair care system. I do a mask once a week that my grandma taught me how to make, so I want to share it with everyone.
My one main secret I did right after my pageants days, is I only wash my hair once a week. I tell everyone, ‘You have to stop washing your hair so much!’
I was shooting a mini-series for Sundance/BBC, called ‘Top of the Lake,’ that was shot by Jane Campion, who’s a beautiful native New Zealander and famous film director. The role I was playing was very intense, and they shaved half my hair off. So, I looked like this post-apocalyptic character.
Because of my grey hair and glasses, people think I’m Phil Donahue.
My mother had all these maxims – like, classy girls never chew gum, never read comic books, never get their ears pierced, never get their hair dyed.
If you watch ‘90210,’ you see my hair changing every episode – I’ve chopped it off, and I’ve kept it long. I’ve done it all to my hair on that show.
Performing in front of a live audience can be pretty intimidating, so having a full head of hair was important to me.
I was 23, and that was my first professional job. Anybody who has curly hair knows you don’t want it to be brushed out because it becomes a never-ending tangle.
One of my modeling bookers told me that the most important thing is to try to be vigilant about taking care of yourself. Get sleep, don’t be afraid to trim your hair even if you’re trying to grow it out, don’t bite your fingernails, and stay in shape. A lot of it is in the little things.
The second stage set in ten or fifteen days after the bombing. Its first symptom was falling hair. Diarrhea and fever, which in some cases went as high as 106, came next.
I used to be really fat, but now I’m not. I used to have hair, but now I don’t. I used to be able to see without corrective lenses, but now I can’t. One of these this is exacerbated by the fact that I’m an editor. One of these things is true despite the fact that I’m an editor. One of them has nothing to do with me being an editor.
Geez, I wish I could tell you I had a whole bunch of ’80s hair bands, you know something you really wouldn’t expect, but I don’t know that the music police would be that surprised, because most of the stuff that I am influenced by is in evidence in the music.
I used to have quite long hair, and I decided that I wanted to get it cut. I’d never met the person who did it, and she cut it into some kind of dreadful mullet. It looked like a triangle on my head. The other kids were merciless.
I got to play a real D-bag lawyer, and comb my hair really awfully and kiss Emma Stone, so it was a really wonderful day on set.
I don’t have a specific favorite product, but I deep condition my hair regularly. When I can, I’ll avoid heat styling and wear my hair in a bun.
We used to wash our hair in buckets and survive on toasted sandwiches, chocolates and soup.
I’m really low maintenance for a girl. I pretty much shower, attempt to fix my hair, throw on some mineral make up, and go.
Martin Jarvis was to have played the part originally but I think I had longer hair or something, I know not.
All the Warner actors were real actors. They started in theater and led very straightforward lives – you never saw entourages around. The MGM girls were the glamour girls, and they always had the makeup and hair people with them and all that.
If you’re meeting someone for the first time after three hours of hair, makeup, and styling, you’ve already set the bar too high.
We moved in 8th grade, so 7th grade I was doing okay, and then 8th grade, everything fell apart. I had no fashion sense to speak of. We only had a couple of hair care products back then. We didn’t have all these things to tame your hair. I had glasses I had braces. I had it all.
Sometimes I think I want to get ‘hair and make up’ every day, but that’s just not possible.
Sure, I like my short hair. It also quadrupled my rate. I did get sick of seeing it on everybody, though – every stewardess, every salesclerk, and in every restaurant.
I know that sometimes the chemistry just isn’t there between the model, photographer, hair and make-up. It’s nobody’s fault and you just have to do better next time.
I would wear flamboyant clothes and long hair, and most singers at the time didn’t.
It was nice to be in my own country, where I didn’t need a translator or a driver. Where I didn’t need to figure out cultural references or what hijab I needed to wear to cover my hair.
When their city was occupied by the Gauls, and the Romans, who were besieged in the Capitol, had made military engines from the hair of the women, they dedicated a temple to the Bald Venus.
Negro’ can refer to anyone with dark hair as well as dark skin, and I’ve been used to the word being used in Spanish in this way all my life.
I’ve had completely gray hair since, like, 30.
I’ve got two cows licks when I was a kid, all the boys in school used to have curtains, and my hair never used to do that, ever! I always used to try, and I always looked like the geek.
It’s funny: I’ve always wanted to grow my hair out ,and I always seem to get a movie right before it’s sort of the right length or right after, and it’s never timed right.
Whoopi Goldberg looked like me, she had hair like mine, she was dark like me. I’d been starved for images of myself. I’d grown up watching a lot of American TV. There was very little Kenyan material, because we had an autocratic ruler who stifled our creative expression.
When I’m at school, I usually put my hair up. High pony, side pony, or a bun, I like my hair out of my face.
I’m actually so low maintenance when it comes to my hair. It’s naturally stick-straight, but I do like to use a curling iron to give my locks some life.
Male directors always project their own desire of women – how they want a woman to dress, to do her hair. With a woman director, it’s more a projection of herself.
Male authors always take care to make their heroes at least one inch taller than they are, and considerably more muscular. Just as female authors give their heroines better hair and slimmer thighs.
Hey, our Founding Fathers wore long hair and powdered wigs – I don’t see anybody trying to look like them today, either… But we do look to them as role models.
I always change my hair, but I don’t like haircuts!
I, Lesley, I like looking nice. I like doing my hair and wearing makeup and wearing nice clothes. But I don’t care what my characters look like.
With a lot of hair and make-up then I’m possibly, remotely attractive. But it’s rare, I don’t think I’m ugly but I’m nothing particularly special. I’m not a yoga and health girl. I don’t exercise that much and I eat crap and smoke and bite my nails.
When I was younger, I definitely did face anti-ginger prejudice. As a child, all teasing hurts, whether it’s because you’re fat or a different race or have red hair. I had enough comments from a couple of people to make it a sore point.
Aging is one of the most visual diseases on the planet and includes things that we all know like wrinkles and grey hair, but also brain atrophy, muscle wasting and organ damage.
My daughter teases me once in a while saying, Remember when you used to be my mother and you had black hair?
I was such a tomboy. I had absolutely no bosom, and I wore my hair really short – shaved, like a boy.
My mother taught me to wash my hair as little as possible, and to rinse it with Coke before a shoot for a sexy, tousled look.
Are you trivialising the sisterhood if you dye your hair or have your eyebrows threaded? I’d say the answer to that is no. But equally, it’s a perfectly valid feminist thing to say there is a certain amount of attention on a woman’s appearance, and I don’t wish that to be the focus or a distraction.
Watching Madonna puffing on a cigar on David Letterman’s show, I thought, ‘Gosh, she’s feeling so India! All she needs is long, black hair and a trip to the Caribbean to burn her skin up.’
It’s nice to actually look done-up, because people see a different side of me, the more girly side. Obviously, I can’t do that with cycling. I can’t go with nice girly hair and full make-up.
I always had influences musically with punk, and then growing up, I dyed my hair every color. I did the dip-dye blue, before anybody was dip-dyeing their hair. And streaks of pinks and purples and whatnot.
I love going out dancing. There is nothing better than letting your hair down and staying up far too late, is there?
I have always liked Taylor Swift – there is just something about her that is very genuine and sweet. She also has naturally curly hair like me, so that’s cool.
Blonde is dumb comedy, red hair is smart, sexy comedy.
My hair got lighter, and I gradually went blonde. I liked it. Had more fun. But my image of myself in my head is this dark-haired person.
My video game character is a bit better looking than me, actually. I don’t think he has to worry about his hair getting messed up.
I wear pink on Saturdays for breast cancer, and I wear blue on Sundays. I’m superstitious. At the Evian tournament in 2010, in which I came in second, I wore baby blue on a Sunday. And ever since then, I’ve worn it every Sunday. Puma sponsors me, so I wear all their outfits in bright colors. I wear matching hair ribbons, too.
Because I was crazy and because my parents wanted me out of their hair, they put me in an all-day acting class… so they wouldn’t have to deal with me, probably. And it just so happened there agents auditing the class, and I ended up getting signed.
I measure the amount of shows I should do by my hair. If my hair isn’t good for campaigns and editorials, then obviously I am not going to look good.
Every actor has an obsession with their hair. You can see it on set, and you start to realize it’s completely silly. I can be very obsessed by my hair, but all these hours spent trying to style it are useless, because ultimately, you can’t change your haircut. It’s all the same.
When I got off ’24,’ pretty soon after that I did a movie that took place in the ’70s, this movie with Jimmy Caan and Gena Rowlands, and I needed to kind of have that ’70s pouffy housewife hair.
I was having a bad day, and my friend said, ‘Go wash your hair.’ I thought it was really silly – but it made me feel so much better. It might be a small thing, but it works. Washing it off and starting over.
My hair is not really white it’s kind of grayish, and I don’t like the color. So I make it totally white with Klorane dry shampoo. That is the best thing to do because my hair is always clean.
When I was a kid, I always had my hair in two plaits. But for dancing, I had to have it in a bun because I did ballet.
I used to play football with a load of lads, and I would be like a secret agent going out with a hat on so they wouldn’t see my hair in a bun.
I love the Sixties with Julie Christie and Jane Birkin – those natural English beauties. That’s the look that is most me, when I wore the tight-to-the knee dresses. I don’t think I bleached my hair until I was 20. I like experimenting for big occasions, though. You’ve always got to do a bit of a number for the birthday!
My singing is part of me, like my stoutness, or my light hair, or my poor eyesight.
I know I’m fat and I know my hair is straight, but I can sing.
When I first met Alan, I was absolutely terrified. I was 19, he was Alan Rickman, and he’s got that voice, and I remember meeting him in the hair and make-up trailer and thinking, ‘I’m going to die. He thinks I’m rubbish. Why am I here?’
In films I might look glamorous, but I’ve been in hair and make-up for two hours.
I won’t allow magazines in the house. When I was younger, I wanted to have my hair cut like so-and-so in the class above me at school, not somebody in a magazine. You see young girls trying to dress like so-and-so because they’ve seen lots of pictures of them.
I kept my head I mean, I’ve never been one of those people who ended up in the gutter with sick in my hair.
I just like to shake things up, and your hair is one way to do it.
You know you’re living right when you wake up, brush your hair – and confetti falls out!
If my eyebrows are cool, if my eyeliner is popping, if I’m moisturized, then I can pretty much wear whatever I want. I think if your hair and your face are together, I think it’s pretty much polished!
I don’t curl my hair. In fact, I don’t know how to.
I just blow-dry my hair and put on mascara and lip gloss, and I’m ready to go. I really don’t get long nails. They’re so Edward Scissorhands.
If you look at me close enough, there’s a small resemblance to a chicken nugget. I don’t know if it’s my skin texture or my hair, but the resemblance is definitely there.
I’ve always said that gray hair looks good on everybody but yourself. To me, it makes me look old.
People still take it really personally. They come up to me at breakfast places like, ‘When are you growing your hair back?’
A moustache is actually the one thing I really can grow. One of the bad parts about my facial hair situation is that I can’t grow sideburns. I’m happy to still have my own hair on my head, but I can’t grow any sideburns. If you ever see me with sideburns, they’re not real.
I like when my face tingles, when the hair on the back of my neck stands up.
I got to L.A., and they said I had to lose weight, let my hair grow and buy some dresses. I was nailing auditions with my readings, but they wouldn’t hire me because I wasn’t putting on the glam. It just didn’t occur to me.
I decided to start embracing and wearing my natural hair, but there was only one problem I didn’t know what to do with it or how to style it. Growing up, all I knew was my relaxed, processed hair, so I had to go through this learning phase.
I am Armenian, so of course I am obsessed with laser hair removal! Arms, bikini, legs, underarms… my entire body is hairless.
I attract a different kind of boy when my hair’s red. I get more quality men – like a more thoughtful, nerdy dude.
When I do my hair down, it just does not look good. It’s just stringy, and it’s like a hot mess.
I was horrified to find out that a startling percentage of women, even in Bengaluru, do not go out or wash their hair during their periods.
I thoroughly believe that shaving is the best way of hair removal, as it’s the most convenient and hassle free of all the methods.
I go outside, and I’m wearing a funky T-shirt and my hair is dirty, and people say, ‘What’s wrong with her? She needs to invest in a hairbrush.’
Honestly, what I think set everything off is when I cut my hair off when I was 16 and dyed it blue. After that, I just felt so free and wanted to experiment with my look.
I can’t have brown hair for some reason. I don’t think it goes with my skin tone. The second I see it turn brown in the sun, I dye it black – the blacker the better.
I also said, men are like curling irons, they never get out of your hair. And they are like government bonds, they take so long to mature.
When I look at myself, I’d like not to have hair on the top of the ceiling.
If I had my way, I wouldn’t be sharing my personal life online. I’m a private person. At home, I don’t wander around shirtless, flexing my muscles. I roam around unshaven, with my hair disheveled. Unfortunately, people perceive you differently. It’s okay they’re free to speculate.
When not working, I use a lot of treatments from ancient casero – honey, avocado, stuff like that – other times, I buy ones you leave on for a few minutes. I don’t blow dry my hair ever unless for work I’d rather go for the natural look.
Even when I was a kid, I had this insane head of flaming hair. It looked like a wig.
I have white hair now, but a lot of it, and I’m still very glamorous, and so I won’t disappoint, I hope! I’ll still be wearing the tight leather trousers and high-heel boots, regardless of what age!
I have very long, wild hair, a suntan and wear knee high boots and ignore all the rules about what you should or shouldn’t wear at whatever age.
I am really terrible when it comes to guys. Inside, I just see myself as this overweight tomboy with funny-coloured hair and bad skin.
I do like my hair being pulled from time to time, it’s like a pair of reins, innit?
When I was younger, I wanted my hair to look like Molly Ringwald’s.
The funny thing about children is that, whichever room we’re in, that’s where they’ll be. If I’m in the bath, they’ll want to be in there too, playing with the toothbrush pot or brushing my hair.
You know, I change my hair color a lot, I do all sorts of different things.
No matter what your hair looks like once it’s wet, it’s about embracing it and loving yourself for you and all that that entails.
The first thing Fontana did was get me to change my hair colour from light brown to red, and the songwriter Mitch Murray suggested I change my name from Pauline Matthews to Kiki Dee.
Once upon a perfect night, unclouded and still, there came the face of a pale and beautiful lady. The tresses of her hair reached out to make the constellations, and the dewy vapours of her gown fell soft upon the land.
In my new IFC comedy game show, ‘Bunk,’ we actually use our intern Patrick as a human timer – giving contestants the time it takes for him to wade through a bag of broken glass for a razor blade, to get gum out of his hair, to pick up every strand from a box of spaghetti I spill on the floor, etc, etc.
I wish I had more hair on my head. Maybe if I sprinkled fertilizer on it, it would grow.
I’ve missed London so much for its fashion. No disrespect to the girls in Manchester, but some really do look like clones – there’s a lot of hair extensions and fake tans. You’re free to experiment down here.
I loved Belle in ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ I just wanted to be her. I’m a brunette, so I think I kind of cling to all those princesses that have brown hair. I just wanted to be them.
I always worked mostly in Quebec. I never thought of the States, somehow. I don’t know – I don’t have blue eyes or blond hair. I thought I didn’t fit with the stereotype of America.
I had the most expensive haircut you can get, and I was walking around with my hair in rollers backstage, and my hair still came out looking like I was shot out of a cannon and I had just gotten out of bed.
I, personally, like to get dressed and then do my makeup and hair in about five minutes.
When my hair is dyed, I feel like I’m 35 again.
I got into animals by drawing hair follicles. I liked drawing hair, and from that I got into feathers and fur, then into images of animals. The patterning is the same, but the proportions of the body change from one animal to the next. A lot of it is just geometry and consciousness.
I take these vitamins that make my hair grow like crazy. They’re called Herpanacine, and I get them on Amazon – they’ve got echinacea and vitamins A and E. They’re really good for your immune system, too. You don’t get sick, and they really help your skin, hair, and nails.
Even when I was in my 20s and at my most beautiful, I was never obsessed with my looks. I didn’t dye my hair or wear make-up.
I’m one of the only actresses in Los Angeles who has never waited tables – yet – and I’m so terrible at holding trays. When we shot the ‘Vampire Diaries’ pilot, I totally spilled water all down Nina Dobrev, and she had to get her hair and make-up redone.
When you get all this stuff on and you put on the guns and the hair, it has an effect on the actor. It tends to lend a certain something to the way you feel as you’re just walking around looking that way.
I didn’t have any bridesmaids. Instead, one friend did my hair, another did my makeup, and a third loaned me her shimmering Jimmy Choo wedges!
We know grooming is important for people. To get their hair done, to get makeup and things like that – that makes a person feel better.
As an actor, it’s a very strange adjustment to start playing the father. I was used to playing a kid my whole life, and then all of a sudden, it’s like, boom. I guess when I let my hair go grey, things changed.
No one ever said ‘no’ to me about anything. No one ever told me anything was wrong. Never. No one ever said, ‘You can’t be a fashion designer.’ No one ever said, ‘You’re a boy and you can’t take tap-dancing lessons.’ No one ever said, ‘You’re a boy and you can’t have long hair.’
I love the entire ritual of getting dressed. When we do a fashion show, we try to send out a message we couldn’t do that without the hair and makeup. The whole is equal to the sum of its parts.
It is foolish to tear one’s hair in grief, as though sorrow would be made less by baldness.
Forget the image, forget the ensemble, forget the rumours, forget the short skirts, the big hair, whatever! I owe this to the fans and I will never forget you so I want to accept this award on behalf of all of you.
You might find me outside with a can of hair spray, spraying it with the hope that the sun will burn a hole in the Earth. Another part of me hopes people will grow up and evolve and get smarter. That’s the paradox of Marilyn Manson.
If I think I weigh too much, I’ll lose weight if my hair looks stupid, I’ll cut it. I guess I’m my harshest critic. I’m not easily satisfied.
The working men, I’ll go by and they’ll whistle. At first they whistle because they think, ‘Oh, it’s a girl. She’s got blond hair and she’s not out of shape,’ and then they say, ‘Gosh, it’s Marilyn Monroe!’
I’m not saying we have power over everything in our lives – if that were true, my hair would look so, so different – but I am saying that there’s no circumstance in which we are completely powerless.
I never want to get a job because I’m female. I want to get it because I earned it and I deserve it… Whether my hair is going to be blue or purple, people should be judged on how well they do the job and deliver results and whether they do it the right way. That’s how I like to be judged most people are like that.
If you want your hair to be thicker, cut it when the moon is about to be full – a heavy, full, waxing moon. Do not cut it when the moon’s waning.
The most important thing I can tell you about aging is this: If you really feel that you want to have an off-the-shoulder blouse and some big beads and thong sandals and a dirndl skirt and a magnolia in your hair, do it. Even if you’re wrinkled.
When I write, I tend to twist my hair. Something for my small mind to do, I guess.
Whenever something went wrong when I was young – if I had a pimple or if my hair broke – my mom would say, ‘Sister mine, I’m going to make you some soup.’ And I really thought the soup would make my pimple go away or my hair stronger.
In my 20s, I used to cry about why I wasn’t thinner or prettier, but I want to add that I also used to cry about things like, ‘I wish my hair would grow faster. I wish I had different shoes…’ I was an idiot… It’s a decade of tears.
In a lot of comedies, they kind of take all the problems away from the women. They give her great clothes, great hair she almost always owns an artisanal shop, like a cheese shop in Manhattan.
I wore white kabuki makeup, had blue-black hair. At one point, I shaved an inch and a half around my hairline and continued the white makeup up so it made my head look slightly deformed. I thought it was hilarious.
My problem was that I was blond. There were no heroes with blond hair. Robert Taylor and Henry Fonda, they all had dark hair. The only one I found was Van Johnson, who wasn’t too cool. He was a nice, homely American boy. So I created my own image. It worked.
When it comes to culture, I’m sort of like Nostradamus if he’d been a handsome, witty minor celebrity with a great head of hair instead of a crusty old dude from the olden days.
I want a schedule-keeping, waking-up-early, wallet-carrying, picture-hanging man. I don’t care if he takes prescription drugs for cholesterol or hair loss.
If I have a bad hair day, I just think, ‘Well, it will be an OK hair day tomorrow. Just put your head down and go.’
In a perfect world, I would be 6-foot-3 and have a perfect head of hair and look like Orlando Bloom.
I do maintain that if your hair is wrong, your entire life is wrong.
When I first came out, I was a film student, and my mom sewed clothes. I was already doing a million things then, whatever it took to survive. If I had to braid someone’s hair to get one pound for my lunch money, that’s what I did.
Normally, I’m a grumpy old man – whenever I read about celebrity, I start to grind my teeth and pull my hair it seems synonymous with idiocy.
The two times I have cut my hair shorter, I’ve ended up out of work – so short hair is not an option.
I kind of like pony tails, beards, maybe a tattoo. My massive obsession – I’m really targeting a niche market here – a hair lip.
If I looked good in ‘Wolf of Wall Street,’ I cannot take full credit it was because of the hair extensions and makeup.
When I was in my early 20s, I had my hair permed. Bad idea! It turned into total frizz. My advice to women is, if you have nice hair already, don’t get a perm, leave your hair alone!
I take advantage of every thing I can – age, hair, disability – because my cause is just.
Chew on this: Human teeth can detect a grain of sand or grit 10 microns in diameter. A micron is 1/25,000 of an inch. If you shrank a Coke can until it was the diameter of a human hair, the letter O in the product name would be about 10 microns across.
I guess you should approach the roles differently when they’re actual people who have been, this is the difference. Getting the accent exact, or the hair exact is less important in a situation like this.
I am fine with the fact that some of my hair is gray. If it was all gray overnight, that would be a scary thing.
The first person is a tradition I relate to and that I use historically, it’s been the voice I work in. But the hair on the back of my neck stands up when I’m referred to as a ‘confessional’ writer.
I’ve colored my hair so many times, and nobody tells you the damage it’s going to do! I went blonde and lost all my baby hairs. I’m not coloring it anymore. Never again.
I don’t like cutting my hair. I did that once, and my mum thought I was a boy.
Out on the hill under the helmet, nobody sees your face or hair, but then you take it off, and they do – that’s the part I’m nervous about.
I’m in fact a hair under six feet, but I’m very svelte. People would never see me if I turned sideways.
I like the brand BioNike for shower gel, creams, deodorant, and hair products. I also love RestivOil – it’s a yellowy, orange shampoo that I’ve used forever because it’s the gentlest on the scalp.
So many actors wear wigs nowadays. Besides, if someone is hiring me because of how I wear my hair, I don’t want to work with them anyway.
I started being a photographer because I liked fashion. I liked the idea of dressing up and changing my look. I got earrings, dyed my hair. I would dress like a fashion photo.
A fashion photographer is nothing without clothes and hair and makeup. And when I speak to other photographers, a lot of them can’t reference a picture by the designer. Me, I say, ‘The Balenciaga.’ And I go to the shows. I feel like it’s my business.
I have my hair done by Valery Joseph, who does a version of the Palm Beach crash helmet so that it doesn’t move.
With the red hair, you get the white skin it’s a package deal. The cons are that you never look particularly attractive on the beach. The pros are in a softly lit room, you look pretty.
Prejudice is like a hair across your cheek. You can’t see it, you can’t find it with your fingers, but you keep brushing at it because the feel of it is irritating.
I like to be a lot of different things at once and dress different ways and I change my hair all the time, so being an actor lets me live out the fantasy of living out 100,000 different lifetimes in one, without all of the repercussions.
I’ve had the exact same brown hair all my life, and my whole life, people have been telling me to change my hair.
Every producer I have met has asked me to change my hair. I have always said ‘No.’ I finally change it for me… and now everyone in the business is like, ‘You have to go back to having brown hair.’
I grew up with low self-esteem. I didn’t think I was very pretty. I had glasses, red hair and was generally quite a spod.
Long hair, for me, is actually less maintenance. I went through a phase when I was kid where I wanted a pixie cut. At the time I thought it looked awesome, but I look back and I looked like such a dork! When I have short hair, I feel like I have to blow dry it, or it doesn’t sit properly.
Silk scarves are my thing. I tie them to my handbag or thread them through belt loops or wear them in my hair. Never round my neck, though.
As for waxing, I’ve never waxed in my life and I never would. I’m extremely Welsh, so I draw the line at removing body hair.
When I was younger, people would always say, ‘Are you a ballet dancer?’ I had that look – one of those skinny kids with my hair in a bun.
Roja Dove – who, at 58, is a stock-straight six feet and handsome with lantern jaw, blue eyes, and impeccably combed silvering hair on the sides of an otherwise tanned bald head – may possess the finest nose in the world.
I really believe that switching products is important, especially for skin. I’m switching from day to day. If I’m tired, if my skin is dry, if I have a pimple, if my hair has been overworked, I will do something different.
I grew up with a saying: ‘It doesn’t matter what you wear or where you go, but your hair always has to be brushed.’ So in Italy, we come from that kind of culture – where how you present yourself is important.
I know at one point I had bright red hair and I had bracelets from my wrist up to my elbow and I was wearing size 50 pants. I wouldn’t wear that today, but I’m not embarrassed about wearing it back then any more.
My fear is that, had I stayed in Jersey, I would have become Snooki because I’m just a bottle of hair dye away.
When you see a fly flitting around your hair or your potato salad, you might see an annoyance. But in my lab, you really see a marvelous machine: arguably the most sophisticated flying device on the planet.
I would like to learn more about what I can do for my hair, because I think I don’t really know my poor hair is suffering because of my lack of knowledge.
Sometimes, growing up, I tried to be very Latina I would change my voice… experiment with my hair a lot, trying to figure out who I was in a primarily white school.
I’ve had long hair, I’ve had short hair, and I’ve had in between hair… and its all good.
When Reg died and we first looked into getting a new dog, I was adamant we should pick up a mongrel from an animal-rescue shelter. It’s not only that they’re usually healthier and have better temperaments, they also fit with my world view – I prefer a ballpoint to a fountain pen, a barber to a hair stylist, and camping over glamping.
Here’s my tip: Have your production hire the best hair stylists on the planet to do your films and commercials, then casually hint about how great it would be to get a trim during lunch break.
I’ve never thought of acting as rocket science – you put on the costume, get your hair cut, and that’s it, really.
Long hair is considered bohemian, which may be why I grew it, but I keep it long because I love the way it feels, part cloak, part fan, part mane, part security blanket.
Anything new is a sort of adventure – as a child, I think I was quite bad at tackling new experiences, like unusual foods, and I hated new clothes or having my hair cut.
By the time buzzwords appear in the popular press, there’s probably a bunch of us in the development trenches pulling out our hair and weeping.
I did one pageant in sixth grade, and I loved it! I loved the dresses and the big hair.
I used to dye my hair different colors and have crazy periods, especially early in my career when I played in Italy.
As actors, we get to hide. You can change your hair and your accent, and it’s not you. You have tricks, these masks.
It was a great thing for the Blues boys to do in terms of shaving their hair off for me. The whole squad did it. At first I thought it was only going to be a handful of boys, but fair play, they all did it, and a few of the coaches as well.
I worked with AXE Hair to do a promo shoot for the ESPYs and ESPN – it’s all about having girl-approved hair. They have a newer product out there with the hair stuff – shampoo, conditioner and all the styling products that they have.
I went to a Turkish hairdresser, and they burned the hair off my ears with a lit taper. They just put the burning candle near your ears and you hear the hair being burned away. And the smell – urggh!
If I know I am going out in the evening, I’ll save my shower till I am about to get ready, so I’m pristine. I’m not one for moisturisers and toners the furthest I go is shampoo and conditioner and a bit of hair gel.
For ages, I had this mullet until someone on the street stopped me and said, ‘Darling, can I cut your hair for free? Because you look a bit weird.’
I’ve had watermelon hair where I had pink with green tips. From the age of 13 to about 19 or 20, I never had my real hair color.
For guys, growing older is fine. Gray hair and wrinkles aren’t considered a bad thing.
The short hair fits my personality more. I think maybe, with long hair, it was a role – I was playing dress-up a bit.
I have crazy eyebrows, so it’s crucial to tame them. Just like your hair, they set off your features.
There is a major turning point in life when you have to decide: shall I grow old gracefully or shall I try everything to stem the tide? For me, that point came in 2001, when I stopped dyeing my hair.
Actors will change their face, will change their hair, will change their voice, will disappear into the role. A movie star doesn’t disappear.
There are many guys out there who look like me – you know, brunettes with long hair. There are thousands. But I think the difference is that I am a real polo player, who does endorsements for Ralph Lauren on the side, and I’ve always looked at it that way.
The hair on this melon, there’s nothing special going on there – trust me – other than a bit of Head and Shoulders, of course. It’s a 100 percent bog-standard do.
When I die, I want to be buried in a long long-sleeve black Ralph Lauren dress and brown chunky boots. I want my hair styled like his models, long hair that flows. I also want natural makeup with a light pink lip.
Really hairy backs on men turn me off. I’m not into the ape thing at all. Or beer bellies and flabby arms, either. Also, one random nose hair which is longer than the others… that’s gross.
I don’t think I’m egotistical, and I know what my limits are: I’m a black guy who’s probably losing his hair. But I’m happy to play roles that I’m given, and I’m happy to play roles that I write.
If Edwards gained 60 pounds and lost all his hair, he’d look like Dick Cheney!
We only had white socks in Romania. But when I used to come back from the States, I used to bring back pink and yellow socks with all kind of designs, and hair clips and elastic bands for the ponytail that had colourful designs.
Cutting one side of your head for a few months is not a big deal compared with what other people have to deal with in the world. Plus, hair grows back.
My party trick is that I can get ready to go to the party really quickly. I’m actually a woman that can have a shower, dry and style her hair, do her make-up and get dressed in under an hour.
Women have a lot of… attitudes enforced in us about our sense of attractiveness being bound up in long, flowing, Hollywood kind of hair.
When you have that long, flowing hair, you feel different – when you cut it, the framing of your face changes immediately.
I don’t get manicures, pedicures. I don’t get my hair done as often as I should.
I was, like, a total cliched ’80s child. I had Barbies, obviously, as well as My Little Ponies and Cabbage Patch Kids, but I used to destroy them. I used to draw all over their faces and cut off their hair.
I’ve always been intrigued by color and by interesting hair. I was one of those weird little girls doing my own hair at the age of 9. I was, like, getting weird gels and new brushes and cornrow holders. I would tweak and perm at the age of 13.
Literally every time I’m on camera, as well as there being commentary on what I’ve said, there’ll be commentary on what my hair looked like, what I wear. Often it’s written in the most hideous and quite cruel way.
I’m a director, but I gotta have the hair, the makeup and the heels. My mother would be appalled if I didn’t dress up.
I’m being photographed, worrying about my hair – and yet here I am, I’ve directed a feature film, why do I care about the way I look? Who cares? Does Tim Burton care? Does Joel Coen?
Since I have fair skin, I have to stay out of the sun. I can’t stand the sun. I dyed my hair red for a while during the 1990s but I’m actually a natural blonde.
I recently finished a job, an HBO movie ‘Getting On,’ a very dark comedy. It comes from a British series of the same name. In this role I have no hair, no make up and no nails. I play a very small role she is not over the top and sassy.
Junior high is so much worse than high school because at least in high school different is more accepted, celebrated actually: all the girls with blue hair and gothic Hello Kitty backpacks.
Coconut oil mixed with olive oil is what I put on my body every day I put rose hip oil on my face. If my hair feels dry, instead of going and buying something filled with chemicals, I put egg whites or avocados or mayonnaise in my hair. I leave it on there for an hour or two and I wash it out.
Polynesian women are known for their long hair, glowing skin, and thick nails. And that comes from the local diet, which is mostly plant based with a little bit of fish and a lot of natural fats and oils.
To be honest with you, I literally don’t even know how to style my hair unless I’m doing an event because I rely on hair stylists.
During my first photo shoot, I was unhappy because they put so much makeup on me and straightened my hair. I’ve been stubborn ever since.
I’m too tough and sensitive to have to have some pubescent twerp with his mom’s earring in his tongue, who combs his hair with Redi-Whip and has an Ani DiFranco tattoo on his shin, come show me how a computer works.
I feel… sexier, I think, with short hair. I feel like an alien!
When I’m not acting, I like to go home and be really normal. So I usually grow out my hair until I get the next part.
I am not the archetypal leading man. This is mainly for one reason: as you may have noticed, I have no hair.
When I was a child, our summer days were spent swimming chlorine in my hair was like perfume to me.
The thing I’ve always liked about performing is that I decide what I want to wear, whether I want to comb my hair.
Since I was a child, I hated having to deal with my hair. I hated having to change my clothes. As a kid, I had a sailor shirt and the same old corduroy pants, and that’s what I wanted to wear everyday.
I’ve always looked the same. Since I was a child, I hated having to deal with my hair. I hated having to change my clothes. As a kid, I had a sailor shirt and the same old corduroy pants, and that’s what I wanted to wear everyday.
It’s not that I have compromised or anything, but it’s always been important to me to take good care of myself and be a good example. I’m not much a role model in terms of hair care, though.
I know what that tastes like, to be a rock-and-roll star – to have a limousine, to have girls screaming when they see you, girls trying to cut my hair, get a piece of me. But I don’t walk around with a concept of myself as a rock-and-roll star, and certainly not as a musician, because I really can’t play anything, except primitively.
If your hair is relaxed, white people are relaxed. If your hair is nappy, they’re not happy.
Behind every small business, there’s a story worth knowing. All the corner shops in our towns and cities, the restaurants, cleaners, gyms, hair salons, hardware stores – these didn’t come out of nowhere.
I’m Brian a lot more than I’m Paul Walker, which is awesome. When I hear, ‘Hey Paul Walker!’ my hair stands up on the back of my neck. It’s uncomfortable. But when I hear, ‘It’s Brian!’ it’s cool. I like Brian.
I don’t know why, but women in a hair salon share their deepest secrets.
My hair is way, way long. I’ve hitchhiked across the country a zillion times. I’ve ridden in every car. I was never a hippie. It takes more than long hair.
Here’s the thing about hair I think most people think that I have Lego hair, like I can just take it on and off in one piece, and that’s not quite the case – although pretty close.
I think hair is just, like, the most important thing about you.
I guess, to tell you the truth, I’ve never had much of a desire to grow facial hair. I think I’ve managed to play quarterback just fine without a mustache.
Most artists lose their voice, their hair, and their bands. That’s not going to happen to me.
When I’m not shooting, I don’t wear much makeup. I just moisturize and maybe put on a berry-colored balm on my lips and cheeks, and then mascara – that’s it. My face and hair gets abused every single day, so I try take it easy on off days.
I have years of saying ideas that are not listened to. Then, weeks after, of producers finding out that I was right when some other guy comes in and says it. Sometimes I just tell my idea to my editor or to some other guy with maybe gray hair to share it, and then it’s brilliant!
I think Charles Manson was a hair’s breath away from just being a terrorist. He wanted to start a war, too.
When I go down the ice, I feel it, the wind in the side of my hair, and then I got the party in the back.
Basically, they had asked me if I would shave my head or wear a bald cap. I said look, if you are doing a series for five years I would want to shave my hair because I would go bald with all the gum and glue from the bald cap.
I thought I was very pretty without hair. Naked, more honest somehow. No glamor, just bald old me. I seldom wore wigs or hats. But some people must have thought I was an exhibitionist or a religious fanatic.
Never having played Chess before, it was most interesting to be playing the game with no pieces in front of me. But I still knew how to stroke my hair when I won.
It’s been fascinating watching all those pictures of me with a lot more hair Jeremy, and looking very young. And we’ve all got things we’ve said, twenty, thirty years ago, indeed the whole world has changed since then.
Sisters are always drying their hair. Locked into rooms, alone, they pose at the mirror, shoulders bare, trying this way and that their hair, or fly importunate down the stair to answer the telephone.
Every time I have visited the U.S., I have been asked to let loose my hair and remove the hair pins. Each time, I have put up a defiant face.
I’m past 75, I still walk, and I don’t dye my hair blond, and I don’t touch it up.
When you cut your hair, everybody thinks you lost weight.
One year, I was a go-go girl for Halloween, and I got all this glitter eye shadow, my hair was poufy with braids, I was wearing all these different colors and fake eyelashes that went all the way up to my eyebrows. I totally enjoy the whole Halloween feel.
I feel naked without jewelry. If I’m having a bad hair day, I pick something from my huge collection of hats.
I do, I kick major butt in ‘Dredd.’ I get to kill people. I break a guy’s neck by roundhouse kicking him in the face. It was me, I did it. I learned how to roundhouse kick. I also do it with my hands cuffed behind my back so it’s pretty cool I have to say. Yeah, leather body suit, blonde hair, the whole thing.
When I have really blonde hair, I usually go for a more natural look, wearing way less makeup.
I have superfine, superoily hair, so my struggle is always trying to get the volume I want. I end up not doing much with it ever.
I had a really good time in New Orleans, although I had some very tragic times in Baton Rouge. Some guys beat me up and threw my horn away. ‘Cause I had a beard, then, and long hair like the Beatles.
When I was a young actor in Vienna, already my hair was falling out at a rapid rate. I went to a doctor, who said hair was like grass: if you mow it, then it grows back stronger. So I went to Brittany, where nobody knew me, and I shaved my head. When it grew back – only the fringes!
I wanted to be into fashion, but I was never the kind of person who could keep up with fashion trends, and I could never style my hair the way everyone else’s was – my hair was very thin, so I couldn’t do, like, the sprayed bangs everyone else was into.
My mom had done some TV and commercials before I was born, and so when I was born, she knew I had a really big interest in acting because I was always acting in plays with my dolls, and they were sort of boring, because I’ve seen them on tape they always involved a lot of singing and dragging them around by their hair.
Every snapshot collector has obsessions. Some only collect photos of cars. Others like World War II, or babies, or old-timey girls in old-timey swimsuits. I happen to collect the weird stuff: photos that make the hair on the back of your neck stand up a little. The uncanny.
It’s a compulsion. I’m always changing parts of me. Even when I was young, I wanted to change my hair color. I was so determined that I dyed my hair with Kool-Aid.
An Ebola particle is only around eighty nanometres wide and a thousand nanometres long. If it were the size of a piece of spaghetti, then a human hair would be about twelve feet in diameter and would resemble the trunk of a giant redwood tree.
Mum and Dad paid me 50 pence, which was a lot of money when I was 8 years old, not to dye my hair.
Since I played a warrior in ‘Magadheera,’ my character sported shoulder-length hair and a thick beard.
I started off as an Australian model. I had so many knockbacks, having short hair and being rejected, and I always thought: I’m never gonna get to where I want to get unless I start looking more feminine.
When I first started in the industry back home in Australia at 18, there was a lot of push and shove as to how I should dress, if I was allowed to cut my hair short, if I had too many tattoos. If I didn’t get a campaign, or if I didn’t get a role, they would always come back to, ‘Well, she dresses like a boy.’
Ron was always my favorite character, because I feel like I relate to him, like we’ve both got red hair, we both like sweets, we’ve both got lots of brothers and sisters.
I have six brothers and sisters. We all look totally different: blonde hair, curly hair, green eyes, dark eyes, dark skin, light skin. It’s just how it is.
To me, it’s really easy to feel glamorous and beautiful with red lips. It’s great because you don’t have to do anything else. I don’t have to do anything to my face. I can have cleanly washed hair and if I just put on like a matte red lip, it just makes everything seem special.
I was a hairdresser’s assistant. I used to get 20p tips for washing an old woman’s hair. I used to get there at 8 A.M., leave at 6 P.M. and get £10.
Do you have any idea what Ali meant to black people? He was the leader of a nation, the leader of Black America. As a young black, at times I was ashamed of my color I was ashamed of my hair. And Ali made me proud.
I’ve lived in L.A. for a long time, and they say, ‘If you sit in a barber’s shop for long enough, you will get a hair cut.’ Well, if you live in Los Angeles for long enough, you’re going to get some surgery.
When I cut my hair, the whole sound changed, my style changed.
If I’m not working and getting my makeup done, that’s my chance to do a hair mask and a face mask and my plucking and waxing and all of that.
I love masculine cuts with suits and chunky jewellery. My hair is so glam, it balances it out, and it’s comfy!
To save your own hair, wigs are literally the way forward.
When I was a kid, I’d spray paint my hair, cut clothes up.
I had this bad-boy-from-New York vibe going, dressed like a punk rocker with spiky hair.
I’ve still got a brilliant head of hair, which refuses to lay down!
