J.F.--In your experienced opinion, what are the physical characteristics that go well with long hair? Are there any parameters--such as height, neck length, etc.--or is it always a try-it-and-see prospect?For example, Gillian Anderson. That bob makes the difference between plain-jane and stone-cold knockout. (If you've ever seen pics of her with long hair....*shudder*)I'm curious.Ally

Ally wonders...> In your experienced opinion, what are the physical> characteristics that go well with long hair? Are there> any parameters--such as height, neck length, etc.--or> is it always a try-it-and-see prospect?Well, I'll answer this despite knowing that there will be a post below this from Dave that says, "EVERYONE looks better with long hair, darn it!" :)In general (let me repeat that, IN GENERAL)long hair looks best on taller women and/or women with long necks, since it serves to balance out those features. However, you can see how models who want a more dramatic look go exactly against this to emphasize those very aspects of their appearance. So that's not necessarily a limiting factor.Ok, let's shift to face shape. Eliminate oval faces because they can wear anything. Long hair works best on heart-shaped, round, and, to an extent, square faces (if the squareness comes mostly from the jawline). A rectangular face will look longer with long hair and a triangular face (prominant jawline) will get emphasized with long hair. Again, those are general guidelines that may not mean anything. For example, Demi Moore (square), Julianna Marguilles (square), Alanis Morisette (rectangular), Cher (rectangular), and Minnie Driver (triangular) all look great with long hair. For the most part, face shape only really enters the picture if you are talking about shorter styles.Lastly, what about weight? Again, not really a factor. With weight, it's more a function of volume than length. In other words, long stringy hair is just as bad as really short hair. As long as you have enough fullness to balance out the look, you can go by the other rules or what looks good.Next, Ally gave got specific...> For example, Gillian Anderson. That bob makes the> difference between plain-jane and stone-cold knockout.> (If you've ever seen pics of her with long> hair....*shudder*)Now you get into an area of not whether or not long hair works for the person, but what looks best. Gillian looks fine with long hair. However, since she has an average to short neck (and is shorter herself), the bob framed her face perfectly and emphasized her eyes. Same thing happened with country singer Martina McBride. She had gorgeous long,wavy hair in a great style. However, when she cut it short, you suddenly became aware of those giant blue eyes. Did she look better with short hair than long? Actually she looked good with both. However, in cutting her hair, she achieved the LOOK she wanted. A subtle, yet important difference.In fact, that's a subtle point that gets missed in discussion here a lot. Someone can have an absolutely fabulous hairstyle...and just doesn't look good on them. And, to further confuse the situation, according to all of the objective rules and guidelines (like those discussed above), some should be able to wear any style the want, but some just don't look right. Examples:- Janine Turner: Looks wrong in anything longer than just below chin length- Sarah Jessica Parker: Got to keep the curls shoulder length or below- Lorrie Morgan: Nothing below the chin- Lisa Rinna: Ditto- Kim Basinger: Absolute minimum is chin-length and should be well below- Sandra bullock: Ditto, again.So, now that I've rambled on this long, what does it all boil down to? It depends on the person. Yeah, I know that sounds like a cop out, but it's true. You can apply all of the general rules I've outlined, their personal preference, your personal preference, styles they admire, etc. All are valid. But even doing all that, you may not hit the perfect style until you just stumble across it though trial and error.Or discover you've screwed up a great style until after you've cut it. Just ask Julia Roberts. :)But, as we've all said here many times, the nice thing about hair is that it grows back.Wondering if he even answered the question after giving himself carpal tunnel syndrome writing the response,JerkyFleaRelated Link:JerkyFlea's Celebrity Hair Spray

Hi, J.F.!Something tells me you know what you're talking about. I could have read even more.I especially liked the part about being tall and having a long neck which are good for long hair. You're right about the balancing issue. I also wanted to say that I think that if you have high cheek bones and chiseled features to a certain degree the long hair can accentuate them in a most positive way. You can either use soft curls to soften the chiseling aspect or have straight hair to accentuate them most prominently.Sarah J. Parker is one of my favorite actresses and I have been wondering why she won't let her hair get really long because she looks great with it, much better than with shorter hair. She has most prominent features and I think that even with shorter hair which is curled, she looks a bit hard. I often wondered whether that wasn't her objective.Sandra Bullock is an interesting case. With her too, I think the longer the better, but for a different reason. Sandra has what my grandmother would have called "apple cheeks". They're lovely and they are balanced with longer hair. Also, she has large, deep-set eyes which are localized with longer hair. Sandra is a very beautiful woman in a very understated way which I think more and more people are realizing.My question concerns Jennifer Lopez. She, like Sandra, is one of my favorites. Great bones, skin, personality and hair, to boot. I don't know whether you saw the movie "Selena", but she was in a variety of hair styles in the film. Personally, I was amazed when I saw her in an evening gown with hair past the middle of her back. Truly elegant and striking. Then again, the shorter styles were good, too. On the TV commercial for L'Oreal shampoo, her hair is shorter, but I think she looks just as elegant and beautiful. The only difference is that she's not looking at all "sporty" in the commercial. I've been trying to figure that out because she's got boxing gloves in the commercial:) Anyway, just tell me what you think about Miss Lopez.Also, if your hand doesn't cramp up too much, give me your opinion of Tina Turner's hair. She'd be an interesting case, too. I've decided that since Tina Turner is on my wish list of celebrities of whom I wish to return as in the next life, I would like an opinion on hair:)All the Best,Jade21> Well, I'll answer this despite knowing that there will> be a post below this from Dave that says,> "EVERYONE looks better with long hair, darn> it!" :)> In general (let me repeat that, IN GENERAL)long hair> looks best on taller women and/or women with long> necks, since it serves to balance out those features.> However, you can see how models who want a more> dramatic look go exactly against this to emphasize> those very aspects of their appearance.

JerkyFlea, you are, like, my favorite party game. Do Uma Thurman! Do Ashley Judd! ;)The reason /I'm/ so preoccupied with celeb hair is that I'm still trying to find the "perfect look" for myself. So I identify the stars who have similar features and then monitor their evolutions. Since they have more resources and need for change, I get to explore a LOT of looks.I'm forever wavering on long hair/medium hair, bangs/no bangs, layers/no layers...BTW, I have to disagree with you on Alanis Morissette: She needs layers, angles, a foot of hair lopped off...../something/, in my opinion.Thanks for the time.Your fan,Ally

Did I just start a war with Canada?To make it clear: Love Alanis. Hate her hair. Love her music. Hate her hair. Love her videos. Hate her hair. I was loving Alanis before most folks had ever heard of her. I reserve the right to (1) hate her hairstyle--or lack thereof--and (2) say so without it becoming an international incident.I think Ben Franklin was an American hero, but I'm not going to defend his hair.Incidentally, I think Alan Thicke and Celine Dion have GREAT hair. AND I like ice hockey. ;)Ally

Celine was almost used as a spoke person for both languages.I was just sharing this with you since you mentioned her.Now I have to tease you Ally.I know that Americans think they are so huge but hell there is more than one person that lives here so I really have to say do you really think you started a war with Canada? lolBut I must warn you that we have to stop the presses because I think that piece of important fact that you hate her hair is going into the Free Press so the whole world knows about it. lolVive la vie Ally

I love the way Alanis' hair looks, and I think itlooks better than Celine Dion's for one primary reason.Because Alanis' hair is real, and it moves beautifully.Hair extensions just don't move as freely and naturally,IMO.

Hate her hair.I don't consider Alanis one way or another -- I've only seen her a few times on TV and haven't seen her vids because I'm more into Middle Eastern music. However, I do keep tabs on U2 -- what do you posters think of Bono having cut off his hair? I've been a fan of that group for over thirteen years now, back when he had a wild, bushy 'do, and saw it go through various stages until it hit my favorite length and look (circa "The Joshua Tree"). Then, at the last concert, he came out onto stage bald! Baby-bum bald! I couldn't believe it -- maybe he was losing it? Oh, well -- Sinead O'Connor has grown hers out, so they just traded styles. :)Remember Flock of Seagulls? Hope THAT never comes back! LOL!

This time I'm going to do it, though, because I've realized that nothing less than long hair will make me happy. I may be turning to this group for support the next time a friend pushes me to cut it, so stand by...Anyway, I'm off to the Canadian Embassy on a diplomatic mission to stop WWIII.Laters,Ally ;)

So, she can pretty much wear what she wants, however, either short or long looks best. Her current style is about shoulder length or so and doesn't look bad. However, she is doing at least three things wrong, IMHO. First, the center part doesn't work for her at all, tending to make her face look rounder than it is. Second, she has great natural curl that she virtually never takes advantage of anymore (a crime also being committed by Salma Hayek). The possible third thing she could do is get bangs to offset her high forehead. She could easily conceal then when she wanted and they would blend in when she went curly.Something you may have forgotten about Jennifer is that she was a dancer on "In Living Color". When she joined the dance group she had REALLY short hair which actually looked pretty cute on her.> Also, if your hand doesn't cramp up too much, give me> your opinion of Tina Turner's hair.You know, on VH1's "Pop-Up Video" the other day, one of the pop ups said that Tina's scalp got burned (or something like that) while over processing her hair back in when she and Ike first started and now she always wears wigs. If it is a wig, then I have to compliment Tina on essentially keeping a similar color and style and simple going a bit longer and shorter at times, rather than changing completely like Cher does, because she sure fooled me. Even given that, I've always like Tina's rather wild blonde mess. Compliments her well.Next, back to Ally who wanted to know my opinion on:> Uma ThurmanUma has the interesting combination of having long hair, but still having most of the interest in her face being drawn to her eyes. Since she has rather fine hair, she could go short, which would draw even MORE attention to her eyes and face...and work just as well. Picture her with her hair up or in the "Pulp Fiction" brunette wig and you can see what I mean. That said, I have no problem with her having longer hair and actually prefer it since it does balance out her features. She just needs to make sure she has some curl and/or volume in the style.> Ashley JuddThis one is easy. I haven't seen Ashley in a hairstyle or hair color that didn't work for her. Long, short, red, blonde, brunette - she's one of the very lucky ones. Though (big shock here), I prefer her as a brunette. :)As usual,JerkyFleaRelated Link:JerkyFlea's Celebrity Hair Spray

Perhaps if *I* were not soresolute in my determination to have long hair, I might have given into the pressure to cut that I have received over the years. Which wouldnot have pleased me, since I love long hair. I just don't understandwhy some people feel so compelled to "rain on my parade." People candislike it all you want, they are entitled to their opinion. I justwish they would not "volunteer" their negative opinion UNLESS I askfor their opinion!So, good for her for keeping her hair the way she likes it despitethe media's criticism.> I guess the reason I started this thread is to explore> why long hair suits some people so well, and others> not at all.> Because /I/ listen to others too much, my hair is> forever in "that growing-out stage."

J.F., Thanks!It would be so nice to sit and do this with you for hours. I had no idea about Tina Turner. Amazing!Your analysis of Jennifer Lopez was great. She danced in "In Living Color"? I must have been absent that day:) I think the center part needs to go myself. Why does it not work on so many folks? Anyway, it's funny you mention Hayek with Lopez. Bone-straight hair is definitely all the rage. A little curl is always nice to me anyway. My hair just seems to have a hard time holding it for long:)All the Best,Jade21> Thanks!> Sarah Jessica's hair is currently almost mid-back> again, by the way.> If you've read my columns, you'll know you are> preaching to the choir here. :)> Jennifer has an oval/round face and high forehead.

As I've asserted before, your hair is awesome. Your face is also more symmetrical and better-proportioned than Alanis's, so it's a good look for you. (Long hair usually can't "balance" any features.)Of course, beauty is subjective a large degree. I think Uma Thurman is the most beautiful woman on earth, hands down. But a lot of people will go as far as to call her homely. So it's possible that a lot of others find Alanis lovely, stringy hair and all.Go figure.Ally
