Emma Stone Hair Debate: Super-Straight or Super-Curly? We Take Sides

Posted on

Fact 1: Emma Stone has shiny, gorgeous hair. Fact 2: She’s been nailing it on the red carpet while touring the globe to promote The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Fact 3: editors really love discussing these two previous facts. And during one of those discussions, a great debate started to brew. Does Emma’s hair look better straight or curly? Below, we bring you two strong opinions.

Brittany Talarico, Associate Style Editor: I love Emma, but she looked like she was going to a Great Gatsby theme party with that tight pin curl thing happening at the Berlin premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man. And I’m personally over the whole ’20s Gatsby vibe. Sure it’s glamorous and can be fun in the right context, but when you have such shiny healthy hair like the actress, wearing it sleek and straight is a no-brainer. Seriously, look how amazing it looks in the left photo above. She’s like a walking Keratin add. I also think her straight strands enhance her color. So next time you’re debating between the two looks Emma, always go straight. (Unless you’re doing the whole old Hollywood loose curl thing like this magic moment. That I’m okay with.)

Alex Apatoff, Style News Editor: Brittany, did you have a big bowl of Nope this morning? Emma’s curls are super-gorgeous. The only thing I don’t like about them is that there’s no way I’ll ever be able to replicate this look myself. Every star in Hollywood does the sleek, straight blowout, but so few ever experiment with gorgeous, goddess-y looks like this one (and I give her hair pro Mara Roszak major snaps for being able to pull all these styles off so beautifully — just look at the photo below!). I love that Emma’s willing to play with texture, length and volume. Maybe I’m biased as a curly girl myself, but I’ll take shiny spirals over simple strands anyday.
