Gwyneth Paltrow went out to two events recently and she wasn’t rocking that “California circa 1972 hairstyle” as JayBird so eloquently put it. Only one of her refreshingly alternate hairstyles looked stylish to me, though.
At the launch of Estee Lauder fragrance “Pleasures Delight,” someone thought to actually curl her normally pin-straight long hair into loose waves and it looked quite pretty. At a screening of her film The Good Night, she wore her hair back in a messy bun and had on minimal makeup.
She must not have have a hairstylist who encourages her to maybe add some long layers and quit with the parted down the middle Janice from the Muppets look. Rather than get it cut she’s trying other styles, and that’s a good first step, but she needs to take the plunge and get rid of the mopey locks. These pretty women with long straight hair are prime candidates for makeover shows. You always see a plain-looking chick who won’t part with her security hair getting glammed up and shorn on the filler makeover editions of talk shows. Paltrow is a rich famous woman. She should have those experts they use on makeover shows on speed dial. Maybe if she had a hairdresser BFF like the Simpson sisters she would have more interesting hair.
She’s trying for a comeback but she’s just not taking the necessary steps. In the hair world they’re called layers.
