Friday Five: Hairstyles

Going to the hairdresser can make you feel great. A good hairstyle can give you confidence, whereas a bad one can ruin your day. Of course, different styles suit different people (and different moods and occasions), but there are some classics that always look stylish.

5 Favourite Hairstyles:
  1. The beehive - preposterous but fabulous. I'm thinking Dusty Springfield, Bridget Bardot, Audrey Hepburn here; not Amy Winehouse or Marge Simpson
  2. The crew cut, or variations on the theme for men, such as the suedehead, which is basically a growing out crewe cut. It's just a good, honest style that indicates you're not so vain that you spend hours messing about with hair product - I find that important in a man
  3. The asymmetric bob - I'm aware that it doesn't suit everyone and is possibly detrimental to your eyesight, but it's intriguing
  4. Beach hair - the long, tousled, curly, side-parted, messy but not look. You know; the one favoured by the likes of Kate Hudson, Heidi Klum and Penelope Cruz - of course it helps to have big eyes and a gorgeous smile
  5. Clive Owen - yes, I know that's not actually a haircut per se, but whatever style you would call his just looks effortlessly perfect - short, practical, sexy and sophisticated - lovely; just lovely.

You can't have Clive Owen, his hair looks gorgeous at any time. What about Hugh Grant then?
I think that the Audrey Hepburn style was very iconic but I have always liked Goldie Hawn's hair and I think that she is even more dynamic than Kate Hudson. I also like redheads so Julia Roberts gets my vote too.

Agreed - Hugh Grant looks great with shorter hair (the Clive Owen look) but he is most famous for the floppy fringed Four Weddings look and I don't like that.
Similarly, Julia - the most beautiful woman in the world - can get away with almost any haircut, so her tousled locks a la Kate Hudson (and yes, Goldie Hawn) are unbeatable, but her frizzy big 80s number (Pretty Woman) or the sleek short bob (Hook; Full Frontal) are not winners.

Sorry team - I LOVE the floppy fringed look. Although not necessarily on Mr Grant..

Clive is hot...and would continue to be so even if he had no hair left to cut...
