Holy hair! Has Hollywood’s love affair with extensions gone too far? We speak to an expert to find out!
There were some pretty fierce hair looks at last night’s 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards, with both Jennifer Lopez and Miley Cyrus sporting some seriously long tresses! We spoke with Matt Fugate, stylist at Sally Hershberger Downtown in New York City, who has worked with some of the most gorgeous women in the business, including Blake Lively and Claire Danes. He gave us the expert’s take on these Rapunzel looks!
J.Lo wore her extensions long and straight, for a look that was truly fierce and very Amazon woman. Though it’s clear that they are extensions (because natural hair would never be so thick!), the total effect is kind of like a lion’s mane, for a look that is fashion-forward and a total statement. Matt says this is just too much hair to handle every day, but it’s just right for a special occasion (like the GRAMMY Awards, when everyone’s bringing out their beauty A-game)– and J.Lo really made it work!
Miley’s extensions were less of a statement and more of a flop! Though the look was more natural (and could be pulled off day-to-day), her extensions looked frizzy and didn’t pack enough of a punch. Matt contrasted Miley’s extensions with J.Lo’s, which were so much sleeker– and he says this is probably because Miley’s were lower quality! And see how Miley’s extensions are a different color at the bottom? She probably skipped a consultation appointment at the salon so they didn’t match the rest of her hair. Miley needs to spend a bit more time working on her look– between showing off her side-boob and her disappointing hair, she really didn’t hit the right note at this year’s GRAMMY Awards!
