Interesting Side Note:
Ali Larter announced that she is going to take a stand for real beauty by “going real” on the red carpet. She is forgoing the usual pre-awards show professional hairstyling routine by creating her own hairstyle, without a team of stylists. She says her mission is to inspire women to start loving the hair they have, instead of the unattainable images they see in the media and Hollywood.
Larter said, “There is a lot of work that goes into Hollywood hair and I want women to know that it is unrealistic for every day. I am going to go out on a limb by doing my own hair for the Emmys without any stylists…and I am going to rock the red carpet. I am doing all of this to help women realize the potential of their own hair and feel more confident every day.”
Not surprisingly, it often takes a team of stylists, over 2 hours in a styling chair with curling irons, hot rollers, flat irons, foam wedges and products to create celebrity camera-ready “Hollywood” hairstyles. Obviously such styling processes used to create the glamorous looks for award shows, red carpet events, and commercial shoots are unrealistic for women to achieve every day. Even so, according to a recent survey, nearly 60 percent of women believe that these images in the media set the standard for beautiful hair.
Unrealistic beauty images in the media, what’s new?
