Lisa Rinna is a short hair goddess. This Cancerian star (July 11, 1963) is a classic example of a strand savvy woman knowing what style looks great on her and sticking with it to her very best advantage.
Rather than being a slave to fickle hair trends and constantly changing her tresses from long to short, dark to light, this beautiful actress proves that she understands that true beauty comes from self-knowledge, confidence and class. Lisa has become famous for her short shag style which she has been wearing for the past six years.
This former Soap Opera Diva and hostess of the Emmy nominated Soap Talk recently burst back into the limelight with her fabulous performances on ABC's Dancing With The Stars and her new Access Hollywood Oscars Fashion reporting duties.
Even though Lisa didn't win the dance contest, her lush tousled short shag captured the attention of the fans as she strutted her moves for the cameras. And yes, her appearance on the show garnered her lots of attention. She recently reported "the beauty of this show is that it's put us (the contestants) all back on the map," Rinna said.
Proving that short hair can looks spectacularly chic when paired with sequined costumes and evening gowns, Lisa captured a whole new fan base with her flirty flicked end, tousled side-swept fringe and perfectly feathered crown.
When Lisa, who has luscious chocolate brown tresses, appears on various Red Carpets, all eyes immediately turn to her crowning glory of perfectly tousled strands. Her locks are always so spectacularly styled that you can't help but focus in on them.
Lisa was so popular with Dancing fans that rumors have popped up that she'll be moving behind the cameras for next seasons contest. According to media buzz, Lisa will replace Samantha Harris as the female commentator on the ratings giant.
Besides snagging a possible commentator gig, Lisa caught the ballroom bug. She has announced that she is "opening a dance studio in Los Angeles with her pro partner Louis van Amstel". Lisa is no slouch when it comes to opening a business. She already is the successful owner of two Hollywood fashion boutiques, Belle Gray.
Her first students, according to Lisa, will be her actor husband Harry Hamlin and their two darling daughters, Delilah and Amelia.
A Classic Shag Style
Shag styles like Lisa's are very flattering. They have
cycled through as popular hairstyles since
actress Jane Fonda wore a shag in her memorable Klute
role. Like the little black dress or a good pearl
necklace, a shag hairstyle is a classic look that
offers so many different advantages.
The style can be modified to include bangs or not, long layers or short layers and can be worn longer around the jaw line to soften prominent chins.
The style actually can be changed up with proper styling products. A volume enhancing spray or gel combined with backcombing or finger tousling can dress up the look for evening wear. For casual or daytime wear, the style can be slicked back into a wet look. When applied appropriately, baby barrettes, thin headbands and jeweled bobbies can instantly dress up a short shag. Tiny accent flowers also look spectacular when carefully positioned over one ear.
Steal Lisa's Look
If you look closely at Lisa's cut, the top layers were carefully crafted to create sassy volume that gives the style a flirtatious appeal.
Highlighting and low lighting create instant definition and focus along the perimeter of the style. Lisa's shag is carefully cut around her eyes to bring them to prominence. The sides are feathered back and off her face to showcase her beautiful cheekbones.
Depending on your face shape and hair texture and type, work with your stylist to select a shag style that is custom designed to maximize your best features.
Follow these styles to steal Lisa's iconic short shaggy hairstyle:
1. To duplicate Lisa's tempting tousle, shampoo
hair with a
product designed to address your hair's
special needs. If you
color, highlight or chemically
treat your hair, select a shampoo that supports those
treatments. If you prefer, use a dilution formula or a
conditioning only (CO) treatment.
2. Apply the appropriate
(Avoid if hair is super thin or fine).
Lisa Rinna is a short hair style icon whose career has recently skyrocketed with her wild fan popularity in ABC's Dancing With The Stars. Expect to see a lot more of Lisa in the future as she steps up to some sizzling new roles both in front and behind the cameras.
