HOT CELEB LOOKS!

SUMMER HAIR SPECIAL

We Chrissy’s New Hue!

Just glance at Chrissy Teigen’s Instagram and you’ll know that she’s a risk-taker. But the model admits she was worried about lightening her locks: “I didn’t want to look corny; I wanted to look like myself!”

More on Chrissy’s Blonde Hair …

Teigen and colorist Tracey Cunningham were inspired by a childhood photo of the model with blonde hair that her mom, Vilailuck, shared (below). Says Teigen of the transformation: “It was awesome.” And while Teigen swears she’s behind on the latest styles (“I’m just getting into braids,” she reveals), her hairstylist Jen Atkin has a few fresh ideas to complement Teigen’s lighter hair: “I have a catalog in my computer of looks that she likes that I’m going to try. It’s good to mix things up!”

TEIGEN RETURNS TO HER ROOTS!

‘When it comes to her style, Chrissy is fearless, so it’s fun for me as a hairstylist because she’s always open to trying new things—and she can pull them off so well’

—JEN ATKIN, HAIRSTYLIST

THEY CHOPPED THEIR HAIR!

KALEY CUOCO-SWEETING

Inspired by actress Michelle Williams’s crop, Cuoco-Sweeting cut off about 10 inches of hair and says this pixie brings out her “inner Peter Pan.”

LILY COLLINS

She debuted a shorter, lighter look at a Chanel fashion show (so chic!). “It’s reminiscent of a ’90s bob,” says her pro, L’Oréal Paris hairstylist Mara Roszak.

VANESSA HUDGENS

Hairstylist Nikki Lee got rid of nearly a foot of Hudgens’s “mermaid-like” mane, resulting in a long bob. Why? Says Lee: “It’s summer— why not!”
