Hair is common in mammals on earth, and almost all mammals groom themselves and their body hair as part of hygiene. But it is only Humans, who pay more attention to hairstyles for the hair on their heads. In the past few centuries, new and fashionable hairstyles have become the rage, especially among the rich and famous. In the modern world, copying celebrity hairstyles is common among females, and males too.
Sporting different, sometimes bizarre, hairstyles has been in vogue for many centuries. Earlier, it was the rich, landed gentry who indulged in fashionable hairstyles. But in the last few decades, celebrities like movie stars, rock stars, musicians, and artists have given birth to the trend of celebrity hairstyles. Many different Hairstyles have been used in the past centuries; some of them have evolved into new styles, while others have been discarded in a few months or years. Over time, hairstyles keep changing with the times and people adopt and drop hairstyles according to the fashion of the time.
It is generally some celebrity sporting a new hairstyle, which starts a fashion trend among the general populace. A celebrity may sport a new hairstyle in a movie, or a music concert, or a performance, but this may be enough to start a trend of copiers in the general populace. Many celebrity hairstyles last for as a fad for a few months or a few years at most. Some hairstyles like that of Jennifer Aniston, Paris Hilton, and Scarlett Johansson are copied quickly.
Some celebrity hairstyles may not be easy to achieve, while other hairstyles, which look good on a celebrities face, may not look good on someone else’s face. A Hairstyle must enhance the face and appearance of a person, and must not be copied and imitated, just because it is a Celebrity Hairstyle. Celebrities hire or employ expert hairstylists to style and groom their hair to enhance their appearance as they are public figures and all eyes are on them. But a hairstyle that suits Halle Berry, or Drew Barrymore, may not suit the face of another female. The same principle applies to male hairstyles too.
Imitating celebrity hairstyles is easy, but it is important to understand that hair texture, density, and color are issues too. Any male or female thinking of sporting celebrity hairstyles should first consult a hairstylist to ensure that their hair is up to mark and conducive for the particular style, and will suit their face and enhance their appearance. Sometimes, celebrities too make mistakes in their choice of hairstyles, and it either makes them look ludicrous, or ridiculous. But celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, can make a simple, stylishly cut, long hair enhance their face and appearance, and endear themselves to millions of fans worldwide, and giving rise to the Aniston Hairstyle.
Many Hair Salons all over the world have images of the latest celebrity hairstyles on the walls of their Salons and in their catalogs, thus enticing the general public to try out the new fashion trends in hairstyles. Many fashion conscious males and females too, religiously follow the hairstyles of their favorite celebrities, and try to imitate their hairstyles. As the saying goes, ‘Imitation is the best form of flattery.’
