Hair envy

You know what I'm talking about ladies.

Every year, so many of us spend hundreds of dollars (and hours) to highlight, color, straighten, or curl our hair. Even then, we are still working within the limits of our genes and our climate (Houston = humidity capital of the U.S.) God blessed me with fine, stick straight, dark brown hair. No amount of money or time will give my hair the ability to grow past my shoulders, hold curl, or look good without washing it.

That however, has never stopped me trying to fulfill my hair fantasies. There have been countless hair dye/highlight jobs, attempts at celebrity haircuts, and even the perm incident of 1991 - yikes. The grass is always greener, right? Here are a few my favorite hair crushes.

All time favorite: Jessica Simpson



She can do ANYTHING with her hair! ughh! These two are my favorite hairstyles though, and there isn't much I wouldn't do to have either one. I would give away organs.

2nd Place: Jennifer Aniston

I've brought in pictures of her hair to my stylists since like 1996, which makes me wonder why I haven't been one of People's 50 most beautiful people...

Others:

My blog buddy Jessica from Happy Girls are the Prettiest Girls

My blog buddy C from Wedded Whims

and this girl from the Astros game Friday night:

Note: If you are the girl in this picture, I apologize for stalking you with my camera, but it's just because you have the best ponytail I've ever seen.


Looks just like the Barbie silhouette, no?





So spill it girls, who is your hair crush?

I too have a hair crush on Jessica and Jen - they're just gorgeous hair people!

Emily said...

My complete and udder disdain for all things JSimp keep me from crushing too bad on her her hair. Plus, if your stylist traveled everywhere with you, your hair could also look like that.

I envy the hair of a girl on my soap. She always has the BEST bumps and great headbands.

Its funny that you posted these photos because I have taken the same ones to my stylist. Jessica really does have great hair, but mine is more like Jennifer's in reality.

Does Jessica Simpson have a line of weaves...maybe that's why her hair always looks soo good ...?

i'm going today and am going to be bringing her a pic! but i haven't decided yet!

C said...

Haha!! You completely just made me laugh out loud at work w/ the pic. of the girl at the game!! I love you just for taking that picture! ;) Also, thanks for the shout out! You're too sweet!

I just tell myself that my hair would look perfect too if I had an entire staff of people to do it daily! ;)

Becky said...

Oh wow they all have great hair...I wrestle with mine EVERY DAY! I could not live without my chi iron. I love Isla Fischer's hair right now too.

jen + ryan said...

keri russell!!!

The Thompsons said...

Don't judge me, but I love Miley Cyrus' long, dark, curly hair!

Susan said...

I'm sorry you didn't inherit any of your mom's genes for curly hair. I remember how much she disliked it when we were younger and would straighten her hair with the iron. I hate to warn you but it won't get easier as you get older. I'm always trying to find the perfect haircut and color.

Hands down, No contest... my hair crush is Carrie Underwood. *drooling*

I can't STAND how perfect it is!! And no matter what, she looks AMAZING!!! UGH!

PS: I too am "blessed" with stick straight, super thin, can't-hold-a-curl-to-save-my-ilfe hair!

- Sarah :-) said...

PS: I once took a pic of Mandy Moor'e hair, when it was short a choppy (I was young and adventurous... don't judge me) to the hair stylist and I came out looking like a power puff girl. No joke... I tried to burn all the pictures, but Mom stopped be mid-way. It's AWFUL!! I didn't pay for it, though... it was THAT bad!

Lara said...

LOL, being able to have curly hair is al well and good, but it's so much more frizz prone, that in the summer you have to scrape it back into what can only be described as a bird's nest.

And if I straighten my hair, the humidity/rain (because England is prone to both of these, and the weather is highly argumentative), it just kinks up and looks stupid.

Pros and cons to each. And unfortunately I think it's the stylists that create their cute barnets in those photos. Stalk them when they're going to the park and you'll see that even Jen can't style her hair :)

Reese Witherspoon!!

Jessica said...

Arent you just the sweetest? I felt like a celebrity after your shout out:) Jessica Simpson is definitely a hair crush! I also decided after I've had kids I want to cut my hair off like Victoria Beckham and do the bleach blonde look! I've been driving 3 hours to let the same lady do my hair for the past 5 years. If she ever retires I'll die!

Mrs. Nurse said...

I love Jessica Simpson and Kimberly Cawdwell. I have actually used Kimberly's style for one of my recent cuts. Ooo I almost forgot Denise Richards. I would just love to have long, full hair that I coudl style on my own!

Dugout Daisy said...

I LOVE Jessica's hair!!! Seriously, I want that hair! Hahaha!

Ashley said...

My personal favorite is Carrie Underwood- Amazing hair...and legs...and voice. lol. She is basically my girl crush. :)

Mrs. D said...

JENNIFER!!! omg.. I love her hair so much and mine will never be anything close. it makes me sad :( haha

rootsandrings said...

Ahh I'm from Houston too!! I want Jessica Simpson's hair too. It's amazing. I'm considering a bob like the second pic you posted... but I'm way too scared!
