Hair You Can Have: Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes's hair has had its ups and downs. At times, her ever-changing hair styles look downright frumpy and lately, she's been channeling Anna Wintour, which is always dangerous. But this look? I love. It's an easy cut to ask for at the salon and an easy style to maintain, as you'll see. And I can totally see it working on lots of women I know.

What I love about this haircut is that it works in a variety of situations. Here, it's tucked behind Katie's ears, allowing the focus to be on her face. For that kind of shine, I've found that applying a shine spray and then using a high-quality tourmaline straightener works wonders.

To read the rest of "Hair You Can Have: Katie Holmes", head over to Lindsay Ferrier's new column at The Stir by CafeMom.

I'm gonna CUT you, Ferrier. You pimped my blog, complimented my hair cut, and said I remind you of one of the most beautiful actresses in the world. Where do you get off? This is just unforgivable.

:)

I have that hair style but I did not know I had so many options! What am I doing sitting here commenting when I should be in front of the mirror with a couple of hot irons and lots of scarves?!
This could be life-changing! Thanks for starting this blog!

Ha ha! AWESOME. If I ever get my hair cut short again, this is definitely the cut I'd get. You can really do so many things with it- and it seems like it would even look great simply washing, drying, and maybe doing a few passes of the flat iron, which I do now with long hair.

Oh, and Amanda, I'm sure you had no idea you'd have a bunch of women analyzing your hairstyle when you made that video!

heheh wigs are great when you go out, but make sure you get a lace front so it doesn't look "wiggy" clip on hairpieces are really great !

What a great idea for an upcoming Beauty Uncensored column!

After I had my baby, I went to my stylist and asked her for a haircut that would allow me to look decently cute on those days when I didn't even have time to shower or brush my hair. She created one! I have curly hair, though, so I think I lucked out there. Investing in a good hair cut, though, has changed my life. I used to be a $10 haircut kinda gal, and going for something a bit nicer has paid off. I actually have to get my hair cut less often.

Suburban Turmoil said...

I agree. I got a $100 haircut for my beauty column and loved it so much that I now get a fabulous $100 haircut every six months, as opposed to a mediocre $40 haircut every three or four months. With long hair, I can swing the longer wait!

Well, I love the haircut but couldn't pull it off, unfortunately. I've tried before. But, I love her lipstick! See if you can find out her brand/shade of lipstick! :)

Like the new site, Lindsay!

Nice site! Your beauty columns in Nashville Uncensored are always hilarious (I think that's where they are... you write in a lot of places and I have kids climbing on me wanting my attention and when I give it to them, they ignore me... phew).

I love Katie Holmes. I loved Dawson's Creek. LOVED her cute, innocent, slightly angsty character.

By by GOD, someone please tell her to smile with her freakin' TEETH!

The smirk kills me.

She must really hate her teeth!
