Celebrity Hair Styles – Why Do We Care?
What is our fascination with celebrity hair styles all about? Have you ever wondered? It’s easy to write it off as just another example of our general interest in famous beautiful people who we see on TV or the movie screen all the time. Celebrities tend to have a different hair style virtually every time we see them, after all. But maybe there’s more to it than that.
At first blush, it would seem that the hair styles celebrities wear have a purely visual appeal. But I think there’s some psychology at work as well. Think about the fanatical attention to the styles worn by a couple of actors on the ‘Friends’ TV sitcom – Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox.
Yes, both of these celebrities are beautiful and have gorgeous hair. But they also play characters on TV who have appealing personalities and a terrific sense of humor. It’s easy to imagine that they’d be loyal and fun friends, isn’t it? I think it’s likely that this separate level of attractiveness serves to increase their physical attributes, including the hair styles they happen to be wearing at any given time.
Along these same lines, the characters played by Aniston and Cox are down-to-earth, “normal” people with the same kinds of every day problems you and I face in our lives. They are not celebrities in those roles, so it’s easier to think of them as average people. This, too, leads a lot of us to conclude that the hair styles that look good on them just might work on us as well.
Sure, most of why we pay attention to a celebrity’s hair style is visual – they’re beautiful and famous people who many of us would love to look like. But if you really think about it, you can probably name several gorgeous celebrities whose hair you never think about at all. Chances are, it’s because the characters they play on TV or in movies are unlikable.
