Best Tressed of 2010

Hello, darlings! I hope your new year is off to a beautiful start. Mine has been a little rainy so far here in Southern California, but the clouds are supposed to part later this afternoon. Hooray!

So, are you thinking of rocking a new look in 2011? Did you find any inspiration in some of last year’s most popular looks? Roy Teeluck wanted to share his Best Tressed List of 2010 as we embark onto the Year of the Rabbit.


Even though we spent the past few months whipping our hair back and forth, Emma Watson, Carey  Mulligan, and The Biebs chopped it all off making 2010 the unofficial year of the pixie.  Roy says, “A pixie is a great way to show off your face and is very low maintenance style-wise.”


A bob is a fantastic way to take your hair from drab to fab.  By creating a blunt layer (or indie layers in ScarJo’s case), you showcase those cheekbones and instantly create a timeless look.  Roy (who personally styles Hillary Clinton and Olivia Palermo) says that leaving the sides a little longer makes for a modern version that softens the hard edge of a classic bob.


For long haired glamour girls, 2010 was all about change.  Taylor Swift broke up with her signature curls and started rocking blunt bangs and a pin-straight look.  Model Lily Aldridge got on the Balayage bandwagon and warmed up her brown hair with some golden highlights.  Emma Stone ditched her red hair and officially became a California blonde.

What were some of your favorite looks in 2010?

    I know that Emma Stone is a natural blonde…but I honestly ONLY like her with her red hair. I think it suits her perfectly and really makes her stand out.

    Ali, I could not agree more!! Her auburn hair was lustworthy. Whhhhyyyyyyy, Emma? (Apparently it was for a movie role.)

    I agree as well! Why oh why didn’t she just wear a blonde wig?!!

    LOVE the modern twists on the classic bob. The added texture in Scarlett Johansson’s look is particularly fun!
