Julia Stiles & Gemma Atkinson

The Bourne Ultimatum Los Angeles Premier 07/25/2007

Julia Stiles wearing her hair pinned to the back        Julia Stiles was once upon a time a vegetarian, and gave it up for the love of a cheeseburger. Yah Julia! She is considered to be an environmentalist and feminist and we can applaud her, as she works toward those goals when she sees a need.
       Her hair looks like it is in today's trendy style of long layers and has been brushed back, in the location about 10cm from the crown of her head, or just up from her neckline. The hair has been sectioned into two parts and each wrapped in individual bands with the hair being tucked and pinned underneath itself. We can also see two heavy ends purposely sticking out for style and two others that are of a thinner vein arranged in the background. From her part, we can see two smoothed heavy strands that are hanging around the frame of her face. Her color has been foiled with blondes, browns and cinnamon. Hairstyling can be almost like arranging a bouquet of flowers. What fun.

       Gemma Atkinson is a British actress and top model. Her face is a popular image among many of the successful magazines, in the UK.
       Her hair is cut just a tad up, from her shoulders and in just enough layers to give it volume and a bit of bounce. We can see the outer layer of her hair shaft is a little bit drier and straighter than what is pictured underneath and that is because the top of our hair is exposed to all of the elements in our climate, such as the sun, wind and pollution. The hair underneath is protected by the rest of the hair that is on top. There is a strong possibility that Gemma is using bleach on her hair to achieve her light platinum blonde color and if we look closely we can see very thin slices of a darker blonde given for contrast. Gemma has nice skin tones for this shade of blonde and can wear it very well. One of the things to remember is the heavy moisturizers applied to her hair on a regular schedule to combat the frizzy look and dryness.
