Where to Find Pictures of the Latest Celebrity Hairstyles
There's a good reason why hair salons keep their coffee tables stocked with the latest celebrity gossip magazines like "US Weekly", "In Touch" and "People". Those periodicals are stuffed with full-size, color glossies of the hottest celebrities on the scene right now. Stars like Angelina Jolie, Eva Longoria and Vanessa Hudgens are rich enough to afford their own private hairdressers and hair stylists, and because of this their tresses always look terrific. Millions of women look to these celebrities for inspiration when it comes to doing their own hair. In the mid-90's, Jennifer Aniston's freshly layered, shaggy cut on the TV show "Friends" led to a nationwide onslaught of everyday women asking for "The Rachel". It quickly became the Y generation's version of Farrah Fawcett's 1970's "flip".
