You Can't Copy A Classic

Why Jaclyn Smith wasn't too pleased with the Charlie's Angels haircuts.


When should one go for wild colors?

It's a very personal thing and no one should tell you that you can't do something in life. If you want to do it, go for it. Hopefully it doesn't interfere with your work or family lifestyle. You should take into consideration how it will affect your life though. As a mother, it's always a decision with my family. Sometimes you do things that are more appropriate for your lifestyle or work. It makes a very strong statement. It's not a blonde highlight. You are trying to make a statement and attract attention. So you have to take all of that into consideration. You can practice with temporary spray on streaks before you go all the way with it.

What is the best advice for getting color?

This is where you go to the professionals. Because you can burn it, break it off, and end up with nothing. Go to the best. Ask around and if your friends have good color, find out who they go to. Do your research.

What are warning signs that your stylist isn't good with color?

If your hair is dry and breaking off, then you're at the wrong place. Make sure your hair is in good condition and you're getting the look you want. They need to condition properly and not leave color on too long.

How should someone say no to their stylist?

"NO! This isn't working, I don't like it, I don't feel comfortable. It may be in style, but I'm not comfortable in my skin with it." You don't have to be mean, just say, "It doesn't work for me." There's always a nice ways to say things.

What does it take to modernize a look?

Modernizing a look doesn't mean copying it. It means looking for the essence of it. What was this? Classic? Decide and then do your version of it, but to fit that person's face and hair texture. The look doesn't have to be exactly the same, just capture the essence of it, but still be right for the person. Texture will dictate the style.

What did you think of the haircuts?

They were truly disappointing. There were directions to go that they didn't take. They had me sitting there in front of them day after day so they could have done some takes on what I do with my hair now. I was disappointed, because they didn't go in new directions. They tried to copy it. Maybe some of the models had certain restraints, but they could have done more. There wasn't one middle part. Mine was classic, and I didn't see a modern version of that.

Do you have any final words for Glenn? Glenn is about the moment. She was truly an amazing stylist in every aspect of hair styling. It's the luck of the draw and that moment. It's sad, because the competition was not about her overall talent, it was about that particular moment, and it was hard to see an excellent stylist eliminated.
