Kristen Stewart and Joan Jett Hang Out at Sundance

Have You Ever Had a Hair Idol?

Seeing this super cute pic of Kristen Stewart and Joan Jett hanging out together at Sundance got me thinking about the year I spent in junior high trying to look just like Joni Mitchell. I totally idolized her, so I tried to transform myself into her. Granted, Kristen got paid to look like Joan for The Runaways, but she's continued to rock Joan's look long after the end of filming and clearly looks up to her. What about you? Have you ever loved an artist or celebrity so much that you tried to get her whole look?

When I was a bit young (between 14 and 22), I always, always asked for Brigitte Bardot hair. It never looked like it though. I have a round face and I guess the hairdressers were too afraid to give me full on bangs. I also had the same bleached blonde hair. Now that I am a few years older I don't really copy hairstyles as much - just color. I do love a lot of haircuts that Kate Moss had though. And we have similar hair consistency, so a few times I have brought her photo. If I get color I ask for Giselle or Jennifer Aniston highlights, sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. I wish I could have ginger hair like Joan from Mad Men or Jessica from True Blood but I don't think that color suits me unfortunately.

I covet Blair Waldorf's color. I wish my own was more chocolaty brown than golden.

I idolized Debra Messing's hair about 10 years ago. The color, texture, length - I loved everything about it. I wanted my hair to be exactly like hers!

For my last cut, I brought in this picture of Jane Birkin: http://tessaboo.typepad.com/.a/6a01156ec04b62970c0120a4e8aa1d970b-800wi It came out exactly like it b/c I have the same type of hair (and the same color). Last year I did Gisele layers. In high school I rocked Gwen Stefani type hair. Bleach blond w/ bangs. I feel like I have to bring in a pic of somebody or the stylist won't get it right.

Hmm, I have loved celeb cuts/color and gone in and had it done. But I'm pretty good at knowing if the style will work with my hair texture and my natural skin tone. I've copied Meg Ryans hair cuts several times (she does a great shag); I loved Meg Ryan in the 90's and early 2000's. I love Victoria Beckham's cuts - we both have very fine hair and petite faces - her cuts always work great on me. And I'm currently rocking Katie Holme's chin length bob with bangs.

Haha, I totally got "the Rachel" in 6th grade. I've looked to celebrity styles for inspiration, but I've never followed one celebrity hair style religiously.

I dyed my hair to be like Katy Perrys, big mistake! It looked terrible on me and had to be color stripped.

My current hairdo is inspired by Lily Allen's choppy 'do she sported on the cover of Nylon. I like her, but defo not obsessed or into copying anything else of hers.

I've copied Marlo Thomas' ("That Girl") hairstyle (minus the flip, because my hair is too long) but not because I'm obsessed, I just look good with bangs. :D

My hair's too straight and my face shape is round so it's difficult trying to copy celebs' hairstyles. I just recently copied Katie Holme's short style, and everyone seems to love it. I'm not obsessed with her hair or anything though.

I love the hair of the chick on Secret Life of the American Teenager. I also hate myself for watching that show ;)

I envy a lot of hairstyles, but I never try to copy the look. My hair is difficult that way.

Audrey Tautou. She always looks fantastic, especially with her pixie cut.

I've copied tons of celeb haircuts, but not bc I was obsessed with them. I had the Jen Aniston "friends" cut, Nicole Kidman's long shag, Coco Chanel's short bob and Nicole Richies short haircut with thick sideswept bangs. You never know what looks best with your face until you've tried them all.

No, because my hair is awesome already. And I honestly dont feel as though anyone should have a hair idol, because not all hairstyle look the same on everyone.

I've never idolized a hair cut, but there were two up-do's that I used to LOVE. The first was on Selma Hayek. Her hair was up in four large rolls (which sounds terrible, I know) with a beautiful tiara around it. Then for my wedding I had originally wanted to copy Julia Robert's Oscar winning hair. Once we tried it that look went out the door! I still think she looked fab though!

Taylor Momsen from Gossip Girl. I always bring a picture of her bangs. I love her hair in Season 2

I wouldn´t say I loved an artist that much to copy a hairstyle, rather a character in a TV show...I confess I LOVED Anna Stern´s hairstyle in the O.C. (and in fact her whole style, her clothes also), and at one point I actually got a haircut similar to hers...

I copied my tenth grade math teacher's hairstyle. She was also the cheerleader coach. All the guys thought she hot.

I like Brigitte Bardot's hair and I've copied some of her styles but never went as far as to dye my hair that color and do the whole look
