There was a time when people of all genders had long hair and anyone who wanted to wore jewelry – it was more a sign of status than a sign of femininity, per se.”

― Asia Kate Dillon

“The very first time I buzzed my head, I was 21 – I’d had short hair since I was 14 – I just remember it was, like, 2 in the morning, and I just was like, ‘I really want to do it. I want to see what I look like and what my head shape is.’”

― Asia Kate Dillon

“I was gender-nonconforming in high school in terms of the way I dressed, in terms of the way I cut my hair.”

― Asia Kate Dillon

“The cycling helmet can save your life, but it doesn’t look good and tends to ruin your hair.”

― Astro Teller

“I have the softest beard in the world. As far as growing it, it doesn’t itch, and it’s so non-intrusive. But, I am so sick of hair on my face and on my head. Because I’m not a really hairy guy, I’m not really used to it.”

― Ato Essandoh

“I have the softest beard in the world. As far as growing it, it doesn’t itch, and it’s so non-intrusive. But I am so sick of hair on my face and on my head.”

― Ato Essandoh

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair.”

― Audrey Hepburn

“I’m constantly trying to find new ways to get my hair out of my face.”

― Aurora

“A lot of people have said that I’m trying to be like Justin Bieber by wearing a hat all the time. But the truth is, I don’t like the way my hair looks. It’s kind of weird, so I wear a hat all the time to cover it. I’ve been doing it since I was thirteen.”

― Austin Mahone

“I wear a lot of hair extensions because I’m doing a lot of shoots and things like that. But for me, a good edge control is really important, and then a headscarf at night.”

― Ayesha Curry

“Being able to sprawl out on the bed and wear my face mask and put my hair up in my bonnet, honestly, it’s nice to have those moments sometimes.”

― Ayesha Curry

“People who worry about their hair all the time, frankly, are boring.”

― Barbara Bush

“I don’t envy people with long hair. So, I’m glad mine is gone.”

― Baron Corbin

“It was great to get rid of the long hair. It’s such a pain that, if you look at it, it’s always wet when guys wrestle: you dump gallons of conditioner in it to keep it wet so you’re not choking on it. You have all kinds of stuff in it, and just maintaining it is a lot of work.”

― Baron Corbin

“My hair was slicked down with a part. But that was before I discovered the blow-dryer. Now I’m fabulous.”

― Barry Manilow

“That’s why I had to leave Hair on Broadway, because I did it for about a year, and one night I was doing the show, and I realized, well, this is not real. I told the director. He says, man, it was a killer show tonight.”

― Barry McGuire

“I grew up in Dallas, with cowboys. I was the only guy in sixth grade with long hair and an earring. Let’s just say I got a lot of, er, flak for being different.”

― Barry Watson

“Rolf Ekeus, his appearance can deceive. He looks somewhere between an international diplomat and a mad professor. He’s got that sort of shock of white hair and a slightly absent-minded way of speaking. But he’s extremely sharp and very serious about power relationships.”

― Barton Gellman

“Islam’s not just about covering your hair. It’s about how you treat other people.”

― Bassem Youssef

“I’ve hidden behind my hair more than clothes. Sometimes having long hair with a fringe is very useful when you don’t want to look at people. I used to have very short hair, but long hair is my thing – a black nocturnal shield.”

― Bat for Lashes

“When I first started my character in my first match with Alicia Fox, I walked out with my hair in a ponytail, and as soon as I got into the ring, I took the ponytail out and let my hair down, because I knew it would get messed up, and I didn’t want to look ridiculous on TV.”

― Bayley

“I was really sensitive because people would say they thought I was a boy or call me a boy and stuff like that. I always had my hair back and, like I said, baggy clothes. So it was kind of sad. I didn’t know what to do about it, and I didn’t know what I was doing wrong because I was just being me.”

― Bayley

“I hated having my hair down because it got into my face when I was playing sports. My mom would always put my hair down and make it all pretty, and by the time I got to school, I would have it up in a ponytail.”

― Bayley

“In the ’60s not everybody was wearing flowers in their hair and flowing caftans.”

― Baz Luhrmann

“Growing up, I wanted straight hair so bad, like Justin Bieber.”

― Bazzi

“The first Broadway show I saw was when I was 11. I saw ‘Hair.’”

“I’m constantly hydrating my hair.”

― Bebe Rexha

“My most noticeable physical trait is, hands down, my hair. It’s big, unruly and curly, and you can spot it from a mile away… literally.”

― Becca Fitzpatrick

“I had long hair when I was a teenager.”

― Beck

“I’m the artist formally known as Beck. I have a genius wig. When I put that wig on, then the true genius emerges. I don’t have enough hair to be a genius. I think you have to have hair going everywhere.”

― Beck

“Like my makeup, I keep my hair simple. It’s either down or in a ponytail.”

― Behati Prinsloo

“I think I’ve learned a lot just from being in the industry in general, and I never really thought about what to put in my hair to get a perfect beach wave until I started modeling. People will use certain products on me, and I learn that way.”

― Behati Prinsloo

“I tend to only color my hair once a year because I just like lighter streaks, and then, when I go in the sun, my hair naturally just goes lighter anyway.”

― Behati Prinsloo

“When I pull my hair back in a ponytail, that’s how you know I’m having a hard day.”

― Belinda Johnson

“I’ve been going bald since I was about 17. I’m still hanging on to my hair for dear life, but I do sometimes wonder – should I get a wig?”

― Ben Miller

“Pull the hair on my head the wrong way, and I would be on my knees begging for mercy. I have very sensitive follicles.”

― Benedict Cumberbatch

“Worry – a God, invisible but omnipotent. It steals the bloom from the cheek and lightness from the pulse; it takes away the appetite, and turns the hair gray.”

― Benjamin Disraeli

“I couldn’t grow, like, any kind of facial hair at 17.”

― Benji Madden

“It’s disrespectful to the older generation to have long hair. They fought in two world wars; they didn’t fight for us to grow our hair and look like girls.”

― Bernard Sumner

“I get facials. I get a manicure and pedicure every week. I get my hair cut, and I oil myself down from head to toe. I got that from my brother. I was so impressed with how high maintenance he was. When he left the room, you could still smell him for an hour.”

― Bernie Mac

“Give someone who has faith in you a placebo and call it a hair growing pill, anti-nausea pill or whatever, and you will be amazed at how many respond to your therapy.”

― Bernie Siegel

“When I was a teenager I would lock myself in the bathroom for hours, bouffanting my hair like Patty Duke and trying to recreate Barbra Streisand’s flawless eyeliner, only to comb it all out and wash it all off before stepping out into the world a butchish bisexual teen.”

― Beth Ditto

“I shave my body in all kinds of ways, wear tons of eyeliner and dye my hair pink.”

― Beth Ditto

“When you see a fantastic colour or cut in a magazine, perched up on some famous so-and-so’s head, it’s tempting to ask your stylist for the same, but do not be fooled. The hair in those fancy photos can be very high maintenance.”

― Beth Ditto

“I’m naturally a mousy blonde, so I dye my hair, and my eyebrows would disappear if I didn’t get through at least a pencil a month.”

― Beth Ditto

“I have been 130 lbs. as well as 215 lbs. I have had blond, strawberry blond, green, pink and purple hair, and none of that has ever exempted me from having lewd comments flung at me in the street.”

― Beth Ditto

“’Get a Job’ is about all the rich kids we knew when we were younger, kids who never had jobs but always had money for partying or getting their hair done.”

― Beth Ditto

“What I always do is go with the stories that put up the hair on the back of my neck or make me cry or make me laugh.”

― Beth Macy

“I always use dry shampoo, even if my hair isn’t oily. It gives me so much texture and that bedhead vibe.”

― Bethany Mota

“Because my hair is colored, I always make sure to find shampoos and conditioners that don’t contain sulfates.”

― Bethany Mota

“When I went to prom, I wore my hair down. But I love the idea of a long dress with your hair up. It’s just gorgeous.”

― Bethany Mota

“I’d luv to kiss ya, but I just washed my hair.”

― Bette Davis

“For years I had my hair parted down the middle in a ponytail, tucked down around the sides… Well, I went and cut the bangs, and I’ve been wearing them ever since. They say it’s my trademark.”

― Bettie Page

“When I was in New York for ‘White’s Lies,’ I saw ‘American Idiot’ and ‘Hair.’ I loved both of those.”

― Betty Buckley

“Whether or not cutting my hair was the right decision, it empowered me.”

― Betty Who

“I like to walk around with bare feet and I don’t like to comb my hair.”

― Beyonce Knowles

“A ponytail or a chignon makes me feel very beautiful and sensual. I feel like I can be more myself that way – I can move and talk without worrying about the hair.”

― Bianca Balti

“I’ve learned more from makeup artists in my nine years of modeling than from my mother. She always told me not to wear any makeup. I try to keep my skin and hair clean and give them a rest when I’m not working.”

― Bianca Balti

“I take so many planes, so I need to give my skin and hair a moisture boost. I use a hair oil in the ends before I go on the plane and always spritz a face spray during the flight.”

― Bianca Balti

“I had this desk alongside the most beautiful Australian 18-year-old girl with long brown hair, and I got up enough nerve to ask her for a date.”

― Bil Keane

“When I was at Babbo, I was covered in scars and scabs and burned bits – melted hair, ribbed burns I got reaching across the top of a hot skillet… I sliced off the tip of my finger. I cleaved my forehead – a deep, ugly wound. Luckily, it regenerated.”

― Bill Buford

“I can’t count the number of times I’ve been sound asleep, woke up, and I was doing my hair.”

― Bill Engvall

“The chaos of my life has a lot to do with my hair.”

― Bill Pullman

“I don’t think I missed a single picture Billie Dove ever made. I was crazy for her. I tried to do my hair like her, and eventually, I borrowed her name.”

― Billie Holiday

“The name of my condition is Cartilage Hair Syndrome Hypoplasia, but you can just call me Billy.”

― Billy Barty

“The club thing is a world people can associate with, letting your hair down at the weekend.”

― Billy Boyd

“I shampoo only once a week or so, with tree tea oil shampoo. And when I slap moisturizer on my face – just some stuff I bought in the grocery store – I pile it through my hair.”

― Billy Campbell

“I live in New York City. I’m 5-foot-9 and wear Rockport shoes that make me 5-foot-91/2. They’re not lifts – I deny that – but they do set off the airport metal detector. My hair is starting to gray a little. I have a gold tooth in the back.”

― Billy Crudup

“My hair used to be real long, and my parents were encouraged when I cut it. They thought I was going ‘straight,’ but I was just getting weirder – at least in their eyes. I was getting into the punk thing.”

― Billy Idol

“They wouldn’t play my records on American radio because I had spiky hair. They said, ‘Punk rock doesn’t sell advertising, it won’t make any money.’”

― Billy Idol

“I think that it should just be a rule of thumb that if your job asks you to cut your hair… that means that it’s time to quit that job.”

― Blake Anderson

“It’s always a little gross when you’re guarding someone and you can see, like, hair coming from underneath his jersey.”

― Blake Griffin

“My hair is brown with a tinge of red. The lights in NBA arenas are extremely bright, and that makes my hair look red.”

― Blake Griffin

“I take my hair, and I just play with it. I’ll just take my hand, I’ll mess with the front, and then I’ll just pat it on the back, and that’s it. I promise you, I don’t use hair spray, I don’t go crazy with products. I just wake up, flip it, and boom, I go bowling.”

― Blake Jenner

“I always like hair being a little messy because I think there’s something appealing about the whimsy of putting on a gown with any hair or make-up – just stepping into it, and you’re ready.”

― Blake Lively

“One of the very few things that I do every single day is put on fragrance. If I’m not wearing make-up, if my hair’s not done, if I’m walking around in pyjamas – I still put my fragrance on. I will brush my teeth and put on my perfume.”

― Blake Lively

“When you shampoo your hair, you’re trying to get the oil out of your roots, but you really want the rest of your hair to maintain its moisture. When you put coconut oil on the ends, the shampoo gets oil out of the roots, but also protects the ends.”

― Blake Lively

“I love to have my hair down; I love to have my hair full… there’s something romantic about it.”

― Blake Lively

“My hair is a safety net for me, so I love to have it down and full and relaxed.”

― Blake Lively

“My mom taught me this really great beauty tip. She used to put oil or mayonnaise on the bottom half of her hair before she would shower.”

― Blake Lively

“You know, I do not think it is necessarily looks, I do not think I am the prettiest girl… Everyone has something that is their asset, some have the hair, some have the cheekbones, others have the lips. But once you know what is your asset, then you should capitalize on it.”

― Blu Cantrell

“I got a tooth bust by somebody who decided they didn’t like me and I thought the moustache hid a scar on my lip. It’s true that people were told facial hair was not appreciated by the British public, but I just decided to keep the moustache.”

― Bob Ainsworth

“It’s true that people were told facial hair was not appreciated by the British public, but I just decided to keep the moustache.”

― Bob Feller

“So when I got to 50 I just thought, Hold on: I’m thin. I’ve got my hair. I’m well off. I survived, you know.”

― Bob Geldof

“I just grew the hair on my back. Facial hair just wasn’t appealing to me. I liked it on my back, though.”

― Bob Uecker

“The best anti-aging product is a great, natural-looking hair color, especially when you’re graying.”

― Bobbi Brown

“I won’t usually make plans with people I don’t know on Fridays because all I want to do is stick my hair in a ponytail and put on a big sweater, some tights and a pair of sneakers after a week working in the city.”

― Bobbi Brown

“When you get put in a position like that, to shave off the hair of the boss of the company, they’re putting a lot of faith in you, and they believe in you.”

― Bobby Lashley

“Donald Trump was really cool. I think a lot of people don’t understand him. He brings so much media attention to anything he does. He’s a proven success. I think people should listen to what he says a little more than focusing on hair.”

― Bobby Lashley

“For years I used to try to straighten my hair, but I’ve reached a stage where I think, ‘I’ve got red curly hair, and it’s actually really great.’”

― Bonnie Langford

“I’m not growing out my hair just to be androgynous.”

― Borns

“A lot of people think I’m a chick. It happens the most at airports. The flight attendants will always say, ‘Have a nice flight, Ms. Borns.’ It must be the hair.”

― Borns

“I don’t wash my hair that often, to be honest.”

― Borns

“I like to put coconut oil in my hair if it’s looking dry. It’s so unruly. It has a mind of its own.”

― Borns

“I cancel going out if my hair doesn’t look good.”

― Brad Goreski

“I know that I basically have the same hair as Beaker from ‘the Muppets.’”

― Brad Goreski

“When I first started, they were trying to get me into sitcoms – I think because I had that kind of Wonder Bread look and my hair always went into place. I kept saying, ‘I’m not good at sitcoms. I don’t know how to do that.’”

― Brad Pitt

“My hair has been mocked a lot.”

― Bradley Cooper

“My mother emails me stuff about when she finds a paparazzi photo and they’re like, his hair is out of control.”

― Bradley Cooper

“There’s a reason why Hasselhoff was in a suit for twelve years, and there’s a reason why Donald still has his hair that way. I’m tellin’ ya. They’re both sexy.”

― Brande Roderick

“When I showed up at UH, my hair was past my waist. I had a goatee. I wasn’t a theater geek; I wasn’t an actor. But Cecil Pickett molded me and taught me.”

― Brett Cullen

“Beckham? His wife can’t sing and his barber can’t cut hair.”

― Brian Clough

“The hair is part of my image, part of my persona. And the hair is no accident: I have to gel it vertical every single morning.”

― Brian Grazer

“There are times when I flick through magazines and think I’m in danger of becoming a prisoner of my own hair.”

― Brian May

“I don’t exactly fit well in leather pants, so I don’t rock that look. I lost my hair a long time ago, so no hair-metal look, either. I had hair down to my belly button at one point, but I think that was the ’90s.”

― Brian Posehn

“I’m done with books for a while. They take a lot of time, and they take a lot out of you. Maybe I’ll write another in the future when my hair starts turning white and I’m, like, that Gandalf-looking dude with white dreads and a white beard.”

― Brian Welch

“I went through a rebellious phase, and was super into doing crazy hair things. I did only wear black for my junior year of high school. I was one of those kids.”

― Brianna Hildebrand

“The hardest pill for me to swallow has been receiving recognition, getting dressed up, going to events. That’s the part that has always terrified me. You can see dozens of photos where I have zero hair and makeup and I’m wearing my own jeans and T-shirt, because I was not that interested in that side of it.”

― Brie Larson

“I’m learning with the older that I get that some feelings are just universal and that I’m not the only one who hates their hair or their life at times.”

― Brie Larson

“I would never leave the house before choosing an outfit and doing my hair – the results may vary, but I cannot do otherwise.”

― Brigitte Macron

“I wish my hair was thicker, and I wish my feet were prettier. My toes are really ugly. I wish my ears were smaller. And my nose could be smaller too.”

― Britney Spears

“I was brought up very conservatively. My father was positively Victorian – I wasn’t even allowed to wear my hair down.”

― Britt Ekland

“I think my least favorite hair color was the hair color that I had in ‘Pitch Perfect 2.’ They really wanted me to be dark red, and I wanted to be lighter like I was in the first movie, but they didn’t want that. But I rocked some light red for a year, after it faded.”

― Brittany Snow

“I knew that my hair was falling out and I had really weird skin. My face looked really weird and I was getting this fuzz on my face and I was always cold – always to the point of uncontrollably shaking. I was more scared that 85 lbs. wasn’t good enough. I wanted to be lower.”

― Brittany Snow

“I have had every hair color. I joke with my hair colorist. She keeps sheets of paper on every hair color that I’ve had, so she has records of it all. She’s done my hair since I was 15, and I guess I have a thick folder going because I’ve had so many different hair colors.”

― Brittany Snow

“Growing up in Florida and having naturally curly hair was a bit tough. I had to learn to do treatments and masks to keep the frizz under control.”

― Brittany Snow

“Looking at me now, it might be hard to believe that I didn’t even have hair in my armpits when I graduated from high school. I guarantee you I was the last guy to go through puberty in my class.”

― Brock Lesnar

“I get a wild hair up my nose and I want to go.”

― Broderick Crawford

“I go to the gym a lot, and I see these guys, these young actors or models there, really punishing themselves – I mean, just killing themselves. And then I’ll see one of them on a billboard, with the artfully messy hair, looking as though it’s just natural and easy to have a body like that.”

― Bronson Pinchot

“I’m fortunate enough to get hair and makeup every day because of what I do, but it’s the same, consistent look. Great for TV, not so fun for a wedding!”

― Brooke Baldwin

“My natural color is dark blond, but right now I like being a brunette. I did a movie last summer and they dyed my hair platinum – I hated it.”

― Brooke Burns

“I’d love to go back to Broadway; I’d love to do animation; I’d love to do hair and make-up campaigns because I love hair and makeup – and, I’d love to do film. I mean, there are a lot of doors I’d love to open up!”

― Brooke Elliott

“You become a model once you go through hair, makeup, and Photoshop.”

― Brooklyn Decker

“If someone’s got good, clean skin, with not too much make-up on, and good, clean hair that’s bouncy, and the nails are clean and not overly done, then you can put anything on her and she’s going to look good.”

― Bruce Oldfield

“Hair loss is God’s way of telling me I’m human.”

― Bruce Willis

“What’s interesting is a man with no facial hair is less intimidating than a man with facial hair, and a man who is bald is more intimidating than a man with hair.”

― Bryan Cranston

“I never really dyed my hair anything significant from my natural hair color.”

― Bryce Dallas Howard

“Seriously, it takes me, like, 30 minutes to do my hair before a game.”

― Bryce Harper

“Most guys with toupees overcompensate. They want too much hair. They end up piling it high, looking like a weird flower.”

― Burt Reynolds

“I started growing my hair in December ’89. I was seventeen. I signed my record deal and said I ain’t combing my hair no more. I don’t have too.”

― Busta Rhymes

“I never underestimate the power of hot rollers for your hair and eyelash curlers for your eyelashes.”

― Busy Philipps

“If you take a band like Nirvana, their biggest hits are structurally the same as even a hair metal band’s biggest hits. The structure’s not different – the attitude was different. Except it really wasn’t. It seemed a little more human.”

― Buzz Osborne

“Flyaway, problem hair is the enemy of feminism, and was probably invented by the Man to crush Susan Sontag.”

― Caitlin Moran

“I see feminism as a massive party. It’s cool, the idea that 50% of the population can now start doing things and having fun and experimenting with their hair and makeup.”

― Caitlin Moran

“My dad had premature gray. I was always the one with the most energy, the one who continued to practice longer. I ran up and down the stairs of different stadiums. I didn’t feel the need to cover up the fact that I was losing my hair or it was graying. When you’re on a team, age is only a factor when you’re talking in the locker room.”

― Cal Ripken, Jr.

“I’m kind of lax about hair in general. I stopped shaving my armpits in part to experiment with pheromones, but also because I just didn’t feel like shaving them anymore.”

― Callie Hernandez

“It’s cool to be nervous, and how the nerves come out sideways. That’s why some actors scream their heads off, or it comes out in their hair.”

― Callum Turner

“It’s really empowering to have curly hair.”

― Cam

“I’ll never forget during the ‘Descendants’ parade at Disneyland when I waved at a girl with bright blue hair and witnessed her dream being realized and the involuntary tears that followed.”

― Cameron Boyce

“There’s some projects you’re – where you’re worrying that the continuity isn’t right because people aren’t watching after your hair or wardrobe or props, or you’re not sure you’re getting shot at the right angle.”

― Cameron Britton

“I was a tough kid with the jeans, the concert shirt with the flannel over it, the comb in the back pocket and the feathered hair.”

― Cameron Diaz

“Growing up, I was the plain one. I had no style. I was the tough kid with the comb in the back pocket and the feathered hair.”

― Cameron Diaz

“If you are ever wondering, ‘If I have thinner thighs and shinier hair will I be happier?’ you just need to meet a group of models because they have the thinnest thighs and the shiniest hair and the coolest clothes and they’re the most physically insecure women on the planet.”

― Cameron Russell

“When I was a kid, I wanted a Chanel bob and bangs. My mom said no. I went to the salon anyway, and they said, ‘No way – we are not going to do that to your hair.’ So I did it myself. Big mistake. Instead of my bangs going down straight, they were sticking up like a cat. It was horrible.”

― Camila Alves

“I love wearing my hair curly, but turning the curling iron all the way up creates curls that look really made up and artificial.”

― Camila Alves

“Because my hair is curly, I used to do all the straighteners, the Japanese this and the Brazilian that. And at the end of the day, your hair ends up not having a texture, not having the body – no shine. You’re pretty much frying your hair. So understand the type of hair you have and do the best with what you have.”

― Camila Alves

“I wash my hair once or twice a week to keep the natural oils.”

― Camila Alves

“It’s a myth that you have to wash your hair all the time.”

― Camila Alves

“You need to let your hair produce its own oils and be healthy.”

― Camila Alves

“I use my hair as a tool for portraying characters. When I’m auditioning for a role, when I’m putting myself on tape for something, I always consider what the hairstyle is going to be because it changes the way people perceive me.”

― Camila Mendes

“I’ve always struggled with having frizzy hair, and it doesn’t really cooperate the way I want it to.”

― Camila Mendes

“I spent a lot of my adolescence in Miami, where it was super humid, and my hair would get super frizzy, and my waves weren’t really consistent or pretty.”

― Camila Mendes

“Because I get my hair styled in so many different ways, when I get the chance to be natural and just me as a person and not an actress, I like to have a stable, consistent look that reminds me that I’m me.”

― Camila Mendes

“My hair has always been a definitive part of my personal style, so I love being part of a campaign that celebrates hair as a form of expression.”

― Camila Mendes

“It was a huge shock. I’ve never had hair that short in my life! I think the rest of the cast and crew were mourning my haircut more than I was! But after a while, I felt liberated, I learned to embrace it.”

― Camilla Belle

“I went to a Catholic school, so of course we had to wear uniforms. My only form of expression was in shoes and the style of my hair.”

― Camille Guaty

“A lesser complaint: hair extensions. There are moments on ‘All My Children’ when half the women actors, young and old, seem to be afflicted by android Barbie creep. All those thick swatches of lifeless strands clustering lankly round ladies’ necks! Like orange tanning spray, this is a fashion fad that should be put out of its misery.”

― Camille Paglia

“Someone once told me I looked good in red, so I bought every piece of clothing in red and bright-red lipstick. I had huge hair, as big as I could tease it and spray it.”

― Campbell Brown

“It was in the ’80s, so I guess big hair and high bangs. And I had so many gummy bracelets! While we were doing ‘Full House,’ we were like, ‘You know, in 10 years, we’re going to look back on this and think this is horrible.’ But everyone looked like that!”

― Candace Cameron Bure

“I had a moment in the Library of Congress among the presidential papers. I opened a folder, and there was an envelope in it. The front of the envelope was facing the table, so I didn’t know what was in it. I opened it and out spilled all this hair. I turned the envelop over and it says, ‘Clipped from President Garfield’s head on his deathbed.’”

― Candice Millard

“My favorite part of my working day is hanging with my hair and makeup team. They keep me energized and motivated.”

― Candice Patton

“I never do anything to my hair. I just wash it. It tends to get dry, so I just try to put good, natural oils in it. I do a deep conditioning mask, which is quite good.”

― Cara Delevingne

“Whatever hair color I have on my head, that’s what decides what type of outfit I’m going to wear, because not everything goes with your hair color. That’s why I switch it up.”

― Cardi B

“I didn’t fall into the category of the ‘classic Bond girl.’ I had short hair – and no Bond girl before me ever had. They put me in a wig at the beginning of the film, and then had my character cut her hair to pretend to be someone else. That was to explain why my hair was short.”

― Carey Lowell

“I have some wigs at home just for fun. Throughout my years, my hair has been treated in a not very nice way, so I have to be careful.”

― Carice van Houten

“When you get older, you have to stay a bit rock n’ roll so that young people will still be interested in you. The way you move, the way you talk, maybe the way you have your hair in your face a little bit – this keeps you interesting.”

― Carine Roitfeld

“’Grandmother’ doesn’t mean that you have gray hair and you retire and stay home cooking cakes for your grandchildren.”

― Carine Roitfeld

“When you go to a show, Americans in New York are very proper, much more so than the French. Everything is perfect. Their hair, the nails, everything. The look. Everything is perfection.”

― Carine Roitfeld

“My hair and make-up secret is ‘the messier the better.’”

― Carine Roitfeld

“Hair wax is my go-to. When it comes to shampoo, I use whatever is at the rink.”

― Carl Hagelin

“As far as hair products, I love Sachajuan, and I love Davines. And my hair would be just helpless without Oribe texturizing spray.”

― Carlson Young

“For me, like somebody with finer hair, the key thing is not cutting too many bangs and really just framing my face versus doing a real fringe.”

― Carlson Young

“I never have had blonde hair. I have never had straight hair. I never wear pink clothes or spray tan and I never wore heels to school.”

― Carly Chaikin

― Carolyn Aronson

“Our massive sampling campaigns have been some of the largest in the professional hair care industry and were the foundation to building our distribution to 30,000-plus doors.”

― Carolyn Aronson

“I always kept a diary – not a diary like, ‘Dear Diary, we got up at 5 A.M., and I wore the weird hair again and that white dress! Hi-yeee!’ I’d just write.”

― Carrie Fisher

“It’s OK to cut your hair or color it because it makes you stand out and helps with your brand.”

― Carrie Preston

“I’m really lucky in the sense that my hair holds curl awesomely well. It looks the same at 10 P.M. as it does at 10 A.M. One of my favorite products is Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. I can get a lot of volume with it. I’m from the South – I like big hair.”

― Carrie Underwood

“I’ve got the long hair and kind of androgynous look. It’s love-hate; it’s sexy, but not sexy. So it’s either you get it or you don’t.”

― Carrot Top

― Carrot Top

― Carrot Top

― Carter Burwell

“I love getting ready to do a scene, and thinking about it, and talking about it. But the rest of the time, I’m so nervous and obsessed. I’m just tearing my hair out in the trailer. The whole time I’m really tense.”

― Casey Affleck

“I think you can only prepare yourself as much as you can, but no matter what, there will be curve balls. I had no idea I’d be taking a flight, landing, and heading straight to a radio station. I thought I might have time to curl my hair, have something to eat. No! You go right into things.”

― Cassadee Pope

“Every job I’ve had since ‘Smallville’ has wanted me to have red hair, so I have to thank ‘Smallville’ for that. But, just the fact that it was so different was appealing to me. As an actor, you want to be able to play a lot of different things.”

― Cassidy Freeman

“I definitely believe in type casting. If you’re a girl with bleach-blonde hair, everyone automatically thinks ‘prom queen, cheerleader.’ It just happens.”

― Cassie Scerbo

― Cat Deeley

“I understand how important hair is to a woman’s self-esteem and confidence.”

― Cathy Rigby

“I woke up one day and wanted to change my look. And I was like, ‘Okay, what are you going to do about it?’ I said, ‘I’m going lose 30 pounds, I’m going to get a little lipo, and I’m going to get a Monroe piercing, and I’m going to cut my hair. I’m going to get totally wild.’”

― CeCe Peniston

“I’m not high maintenance, and I’m not into a highly manicured man. I don’t want to see a lot of hair product. If he’s too showy, that’s embarrassing to me – I wear makeup and take showers, but that’s basically it. I’m not trying to stand out too much.”

― Cecily Strong

“I’m not high maintenance, and I’m not into a highly manicured man. I don’t want to see a lot of hair product.”

― Cecily Strong

― Charisma Carpenter

― Charles Nelson Reilly

“My hair is naturally super curly. But I really don’t do so much to it. I just sleep on it and see what happens.”

― Charli XCX

― Charli XCX

“From my own personal standpoint, I’ve always preferred my hair shorter because it’s just easier.”

― Charlie White

“I’ve never had anyone just stick their hands through my hair. Yet. If they ask, I go, ‘OK, you can, if you want to. It’s probably just going to feel like most people’s.’ I take it as a compliment.”

― Charlie White

“I have never been particularly picky when it comes to what I’m putting in my hair. Most of it is just the genes I’m so fortunate to have inherited from my parents.”

― Charlie White

“If they ever do my life story, whoever plays me needs lots of hair color and high heels.”

― Charlize Theron

― Chelsea Lankes

“Avoid fatty foods, Bensonhurst, and hair care products.”

― Chevy Chase

“During the fashion month, I have a very busy schedule and not much time to dedicate to my hair, but I cannot neglect it if I want to maintain it healthy and always perfect. Taking care of it with the right products while keeping it healthy allows me to wear strong and shiny hair even without having to avoid experimenting new styles and looks.”

― Chiara Ferragni

“I have always used Pantene hair products since I was a child, since I was 9 or 10 years old when I began to shampoo and condition my hair. I have also always been ‘obsessed’ with the brand’s beautiful ad campaigns.”

― Chiara Ferragni

“I love hats, especially when you have bad hair days.”

― Chiara Ferragni

“I strongly prefer to keep my hair loose and wavy, leaving it as natural as possible.”

― Chiara Ferragni

― Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

“My hair does get really frizzy, so I use a de-frizzing serum from Bumble and Bumble, and also Moroccan Oil is some really good stuff. Plus, I can’t live without my Burt’s Bees lip balm!”

― Chloe Grace Moretz

“My mom wouldn’t let me dye my hair for the longest time.”

― Chloe Kim

“I was a girly-girl until I moved to New York. Then I got really into the androgynous look of the early-’90s club scene. I had really short hair and started blurring the line a bit. But for me, grade school was about Benetton, Esprit, and Guess jeans.”

― Chloe Sevigny

“I want a guy who is masculine, good with his hands and able to build stuff and who has survival skills. Facial hair is a big turn-on. Most of the kids I hang out with in New York are hipster arty types, but I like a stronger, more physically imposing man – like a lumberjack.”

― Chloe Sevigny

“When I was a teenager, I was really into hair; I dyed it different colours and had loads of haircuts. I shaved my head when I was 17 – it was pretty radical!”

― Chloe Sevigny

“I permed my hair 12 years ago, because I always wanted a perm, but my mother would never let me have one! I got a lot of stick, but I didn’t care – I loved the curls. The growing out was the difficult part!”

― Chloe Sevigny

“My hair looks awful while wet, I will say that.”

― Chris Benz

“I am actively campaigning for ‘chest hair’ to become an Olympic sport.”

― Chris Carmack

“I love having a shaved head. I’d rather not deal with hair if I don’t have to. I like not thinking about it. A shaved head and letting my beard go requires the least amount of anything.”

― Chris Evans

“I like wet hair and sweatpants. I like sneakers and ponytails.”

― Chris Evans

“My worst hairstyle was a bowl cut parted down the middle. It was the ’90s. It was what you did. I had that from 4th grade until freshman year in high school. I’m glad the pictures exist. I had great hair back then.”

― Chris Evans

“There was a misconception about me when I started off because I had my hair greased up and I have some vague resemblance to the hillbilly gene pool that Elvis came from. People would say, ‘You want to be Elvis’ and I would say, ‘No’.”

― Chris Isaak

“I don’t spend as much time on my hair as people think. I get out of the shower, whack some grease on there and I’m done.”

― Chris Isaak

“I really love diving in, head first, with directing and not having to worry about hair, makeup or lines.”

― Chris Lowell

“Certainly, it’s not unprecedented in the fashion world to use human hair on clothing.”

― Chris March

“In the past, I have approximated the look of monkey fur and yak hair with human hair because it’s inexpensive, and it lasts a long time.”

― Chris March

“I’ve never been cool and I don’t really care about being cool. It’s just an awful lot of time and hair gel wasted.”

― Chris Martin

“I’m enjoying the aging process and the gray hair and the wrinkles.”

― Chris Pine

“You know, I just tend to grow my beard out for ‘Parks and Rec.’ As an actor it’s always easier to shave or cut your hair for a role, but it’s hard to put fake hair on or grow hair for a role. When you look at pictures of me, the longer my hair is, the longer my facial hair is, that’s just the longer I haven’t gotten a job.”

― Chris Pratt

“Charley Patton is the original inspiration. I didn’t play anything when I was a kid. Then, when I was 20, I went into my mam’s bedroom because she had a double mirror, and I wanted to see what the back of my hair was doing. She had an alarm-clock radio, and it came on with this old guy moaning and hollering, playing this strange guitar.”

― Chris Rea

“Our hair and makeup team at ‘This Is Us’ had made me a mohawk to wear. I couldn’t apply it correctly.”

― Chris Sullivan

“Truth is, I cut my hair for freedom, not for beauty.”

― Chrisette Michele

“I was teased up until high school about my hair, being short, my high pitched voice, and just anything you can think of.”

― Chrissie Fit

“Why not have a motivation beyond me to get to a healthy weight? Every actor does that. We’re chameleons. We change; we grow as an actor. You lose weight, you gain weight, you change your hair or whatever.”

― Chrissy Metz

“Even on television, I am full of fake hair and covered in body makeup head-to-toe.”

― Chrissy Teigen

“My mom really let us do our own thing and play with different trends, and my sister was a little older, so she had all the beauty tricks. I would stuff things like rolled-up toilet paper into my hair to get volume, or do the reverse, and I’d lie on my back, and she’d use an actual iron to straighten it.”

― Chrissy Teigen

“I dyed my own hair this Chocolate Cherry color, and I forget what brand it was, but I remember getting into so much trouble because it stained our bathtub. It was this red-black color, and it was a big mistake.”

― Chrissy Teigen

“My hair is too fine to bleach. I get so much breakage, it’s not worth it to dye it.”

― Christa B. Allen

“I love Goody’s Spin Pins. They’re super cheap and look like corkscrews. You just gather your hair and screw them into a bun.”

― Christa Miller

“I have crazy, curly, big hair, so,if I have time to try to make myself look presentable, I usually spend it doing my hair.”

― Christen Press

“I have long hair because I’m American Indian. I’m an Oklahoma boy, and I’m very proud of my heritage.”

― Christian Kane

“I usually go to Lush for hair products. I had no idea that this existed, but they have a shampoo rock, and it looks like a bar of soap, and I was tripping out when they told me it was a shampoo, so that’s pretty sweet.”

― Christian Serratos

“I’ve always believed in a rainbow diet. As many colors and foods as you can eat, the better, because if you focus on one food, there’s bound to be a report that comes out that says, ‘Broccoli actually… ‘ So I mix it up a lot. And I take vitamins, like Biosil, which I take for my hair, skin, and nails.”

― Christie Brinkley

“Some days I don’t have time for a full workout, but I do have to dry my hair, right? So rather than just stand there blow-drying, I do several kinds of leg squats at the same time. I believe in multitasking.”

― Christie Brinkley

“Everything I have has dog hair on it, and that’s just the way it is.”

― Christina Applegate

“I just thought I would work in a hair salon and do community theater.”

― Christina Hendricks

“It is tricky because I do wear a lot of vintage on the red carpet, and usually when I’m getting ready, I’ll say, ‘We need to make sure that I don’t look like I’m in a Scorsese film today.’ Sometimes I do something a little bit more modern with my hair. You have to mix it up.”

― Christina Hendricks

“I dyed my hair about 42 different colours, and kids can be pretty judgmental about people who are different. But instead of breaking down and conforming, I stood firm. That is also probably why I was unhappy.”

― Christina Hendricks

“We have defined these characters – people always expect to see me in a pencil skirt. When they see me out of one – much like when they see Jon Hamm’s hair when it isn’t slick – they say, ‘Wait a minute, you’re all 2010!’”

― Christina Hendricks

“I went to a very mean school and was bullied like crazy. I was a bit of a goth with purple hair, and I was also part of the drama group, which was filled with actors and writers and wasn’t really accepted by the rest of the school.”

― Christina Hendricks

“I use Redken color on my hair and use mild shampoos that don’t strip your hair of color. If I need to, I’ll use a good colored mousse in between.”

― Christina Hendricks

“I’m constantly saying that I have bad hair days when I’m in New York. It’s so hard. I’ve been lucky enough to jump immediately into a car, head straight to the location, and stay in the air-conditioning.”

― Christina Hendricks

“I want Violet to be proud of every little thing that is her – her hair, her body. We’re all different, and from early on, I’ve always said she has a very confident personality, and I want her to maintain that.”

― Christina Milian

“A successful argument for a government manufacturing policy has to go beyond the feeling that it’s better to produce ‘real things’ than services. American consumers value health care and haircuts as much as washing machines and hair dryers.”

― Christina Romer

“’Southland’ is very real; it’s not about who found the hair in the bed. There are procedural aspects to it, but it’s not about that.”

― Christopher Chulack

“We heard about people who went backstage at dog shows with scissors and cut parts of a poodle’s hair off to sabotage the dog.”

― Christopher Guest

“Somebody once asked me how I found Peter Jackson, and I said: ‘Well, I parted his hair, and there he was.’”

― Christopher Lee

“I dressed as the Riddler once, when I was little too heavy to do. I would wear tights. My brother was in a hair metal band, and he had Riddler tights made. My brother’s a geek, but he was in a heavy metal band, so I’m a chubby fifteen-year-old, and I borrow his Riddler tights and wear them to school with the package. That wasn’t a good idea.”

― Christopher McCulloch

“When I portray Stabler, I have to shave every day and cut my hair every week! And then, I really like to change my looks for films like ‘Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle’ where I have the pleasure of playing the ugliest man in the world.”

― Christopher Meloni

“My hair was famous before I was.”

― Christopher Walken

“My only writing ritual is to shave my head bald between writing the first and second drafts of a book. If I can throw away all my hair, then I have the freedom to trash any part of the book on the next rewrite.”

― Chuck Palahniuk

“I don’t like to do much with my hair – which is good, because I don’t know how! I just always make sure I have a great haircut.”

― Chyler Leigh

“I have dark blonde hair – and it needs help. I went darker, when I was 18, in one of those ‘I’m 18, and I can do what I want’ moments. It’s been that way ever since.”

― Chyler Leigh

“I don’t believe in bright, cheesy colors that are applied from roots to tips. I’m not really into that. But I love the more fashion-y way of adding color to your hair methodically.”

― Ciara

“My first professional acting job was in ‘Hair’ during the Vietnam War. So I think I’ve always been drawn to projects with a social conscience.”

― Clarke Peters

“A wartime Minister of Information is compelled, in the national interest, to such continuous acts of duplicity that even his natural hair must grow to resemble a wig.”

― Claud Cockburn

“Men don’t get smarter when they grow older. They just lose their hair.”

― Claudette Colbert

“I like to create a lot of texture in my hair, and I like it a bit messy.”

― Claudia Kim

“I know that I’ve got big ears and a big forehead and that my hair sticks up. But I’m happy with myself. I’m not necessarily trying to win a beauty pageant here.”

― Clay Aiken

“I got rid of my glasses and they changed my hair. That’s really all they did. They went shopping for me, so the clothes are different too. It wasn’t like Extreme Makeover where I got a nose job or anything.”

― Clay Aiken

“You let the hair down, and that’s when the wild man comes out.”

― Clay Matthews III

“I was blessed with blonde hair and a baby face – well, I don’t know if you’d call that blessed – I don’t even remember when I started shaving.”

― Clay Matthews III

“I decided to grow my hair out during college, and it’s kind of stuck ever since. Even when I thought about cutting it or trimming it, common sense kicks in, and I don’t think the fans would recognize me; people wouldn’t know who I am. It would almost be like Santa Claus losing his powers.”

― Clay Matthews III

“I’m always so impressed with these actresses with their perfect make up and hair and sometimes I’m very aware that I’m not like that. But I don’t think I can do things any other way. I would be wearing a disguise if I started to apply that stuff.”

― Clemence Poesy

“Actresses are so spoilt – we have someone who does our hair for us on set, so we don’t know how to do it ourselves in real life. I know how to wash my hair and brush my teeth, but that’s about it!”

― Clemence Poesy

“You know when you’re young and you see a play in high school, and the guys all have gray in their hair and they’re trying to be old men and they have no idea what that’s like? It’s just that stupid the other way around.”

― Clint Eastwood

“I mean, I’ve always been a libertarian. Leave everybody alone. Let everybody else do what they want. Just stay out of everybody else’s hair.”

― Clint Eastwood

“As a teenager I was crazy about David Bowie. He was a huge inspiration for me. I dressed a little bit crazily in school and dyed my hair every colour under the sun.”

― Clive Owen

“Everybody knows how to throw a punch. Not correctly – he or she might not know how to turn the wrist or know what part of the hand to hit with. But humans instinctively know to fight, whether they bite or claw or pull hair. It’s an instinct.”

― CM Punk

“I’ve always had a booty even when I was a baby, and when I was in high school and was skinny, I still had the booty. In Hollywood’s eyes, the perfect women has to be a stick figure, tall, blonde hair, with big boobs.”

― Coco Austin

“Whenever I really get serious about something, I pull my hair back into a tight ponytail. If you see me with that, you know I mean business.”

― Coco Rocha

“I remember working with Agyness Deyn. At the time, she was the only one who had short hair as a model. I remember being so envious of her because we would all be getting our hair pulled for two hours backstage, and she was getting a new haircut almost every other show.”

― Coco Rocha

“I think I was always so resistant to coloring my hair because, you know, when my dad was still alive, it’s so easy for a second- or third-generation wrestler to just copy their predecessor. The hardest thing you can do is try and carve out your own legacy.”

― Cody Rhodes

“For the ‘Try’ video, I didn’t prep or starve myself and over-exercise. And then I didn’t get my nails done. I didn’t get my hair done. I didn’t get a facial. I didn’t have a stylist.”

― Colbie Caillat

“He may have hair upon his chest but, sister, so has Lassie.”

― Cole Porter

“Costume, hair and makeup can tell you instantly, or at least give you a larger perception of who a character is. It’s the first impression that you have of the character before they open their mouth, so it really does establish who they are.”

― Colleen Atwood

“I get more distracted by hair or a really bad wig than I do costumes any day of the week.”

― Colleen Atwood

“I had curly hair, braces, pimples – you talk about going through puberty and the worst things that go with it, I had it, for sure. And then I had a bottom retainer, so my lisp was really bad. I still have a minor one when I get really excited.”

― Colton Underwood

“I loved Michael Jackson and Madonna. I styled my hair like Whitney Houston.”

― Concha Buika

“I was born in Boston, but then I went down to Virginia. We spent a little time in Maryland, and then were in Virginia by the time I was seven. What struck me the most was that my mother thought that she had gone to the middle of nowhere, and we would still drive four hours for her to get her hair cut in Washington, D.C.”

― Connie Britton

“I try to put as little stuff into my hair as I can, which tends to be the best for it.”

― Connie Britton

“I started hearing people say, ‘There’s a blog about your hair, and there are all of these Tumblr accounts.’ I’m like, ‘What’s Tumblr?’ I’m pretty mystified by it, because I look around, and a lot of people have great hair.”

― Connie Britton

“It’s going to take me less time to wreck Ben Shapiro than it took me to curl my hair.”

― ContraPoints

“The minute my hair went, I shaved it. Thank God it became kind of cool. I just have really big ears.”

― Corbin Bernsen

“I made a choice in my career to not get hair plugs and not hide the fact that I was balding, and I’ve managed to play all sorts of characters who have shaved heads.”

― Corey Stoll

“I never really knew what to do with my hair to begin with. When I was fat, I had incredibly long, unkempt hair. And there was kind of a poetic justice to losing something I was hiding behind.”

― Corey Stoll

“I have always had a bob haircut because my hair is so fine and doesn’t like being long.”

― Cornelia Parker

“I’ve tried to convince members of my party that we should not allow the hair on the backs of our necks to bristle every time somebody mentions renewable energy.”

― Cory Gardner

“Day-to-day, I don’t wear make-up, my hair’s not done, and I’m in ripped jeans and a Bonds tee. But doing red carpets is just part of work.”

― Courtney Eaton

“One of the strangest things about being an actor is that people you don’t know feel that they are allowed to comment on your hair, body, clothes, relationships.”

― Courtney Thorne-Smith

“I had beautiful wavy hair and a waxed mustache.”

― Curly Howard

“I’ll have long, straight hair, like down to my back, when I go to Heaven. And I’m not even going to work out, but I’ll be in shape. It’s a whole new program up there.”

― Curtis Jackson

“You know, I’ve been playing with my hair color ever since I was nine.”

― Cyndi Lauper

“I have a wig for when I go outside among the regular folks, so they don’t feel uncomfortable because I have a Day-Glo color somewhere in my hair.”

― Cyndi Lauper

“I take biotin to make sure hair and nails are growing well.”

― Cynthia Erivo

“I understand that if I really need my hair to be nice, now I hire someone to do it, and I understand that putting on a pair of heels really makes a difference.”

― Cynthia Nixon

“I have no idea how women manage their hair. Seriously.”

― Cyrus Broacha

“In England we burnt redheads at the stake, because we thought they were witches. There are still young redheads in Britain getting ripped for having red hair. ‘Oy, Ginger!’”

― Damian Lewis

“I’m about 5′ 10″, and my hair is the length of my whole body now. We grow our hair because of faith, but it’s getting heavy. Most of the rastas I know with hair my length are elders, and they keep it tied up, but for a young person who’s active and running around, the weight is a big thing. So to play sports, I put it in a backpack.”

― Damian Marley

“One of my favorite episodes was the one in which Homer grew hair. That was a very unique episode, since there was a gay secretary, but that wasn’t even the issue of the show-the issue was Homer’s image changing because he had hair.”

― Dan Castellaneta

“Everything Neymar does turns into news. If he gets emotional, they criticise. If he colours his hair, they criticise.”

― Dani Alves

“Sometimes, I’m driving along in my car, and a song from my high-school years comes on the radio: Springsteen’s ‘Thunder Road.’ Just the opening few chords make me want to roll down the window and let the wind blow back my hair.”

― Dani Shapiro

“There’s a danger in romanticizing what it means to be a writer. Because what it really means is hard, hard work. It means tearing your hair out. Feeling like your head is about to explode.”

― Dani Shapiro

“My special thing as a kid was to play dead because I thought I was really good at it. When I was 7 or 8, I even did it in the bathroom with a hair dryer in the bathtub. I realized that I was good at it because each time my mom would scream.”

― Daniel Bruhl

“I’m not somebody who is genetically gifted when it comes to facial hair.”

― Daniel Bryan

“Because of my schedule and dietary requirements, I don’t party a lot, but when I can let my hair down, I will; I think that’s healthy. I love a weekend in Vegas.”

― Daniel Ricciardo

“I do believe a haircut makes you play better – I’ve experienced that before. I think it’s confidence, it’s routine, and it can also be superstition. Just like if you do your hair, it’s not quite done right, and you have a bad day, you’re not going to do that again the next day.”

― Daniel Sturridge

“Most men somewhere in their psyche are still dragging women around by their hair. It’s terrible. I have two daughters, but even before my kids were born I always thought that it was terrible.”

― Danny DeVito

“See, my strumpf is in my hair. Now, I don’t know what strumpf means. It’s just a term some brothas gave me.”

“I dye my hair, and I use teeth whitening strips. Unless I burnt myself or damaged my skin, I wouldn’t have cosmetic surgery.”

― Darcey Bussell

“I do feel blessed to have small ears – I’ve never felt self-conscious when my hair is swept back. My feet are a different story – I grew up being painfully aware of them because they are so long.”

― Darcey Bussell

“But when I cut off my hair I even had friends not recognize me.”

― Davey Havok

“I’ve never wanted anybody to like me because I had long hair or short hair, or that they liked the way I dressed or they liked the way I dressed or they liked the way I smile.”

― David Allan Coe

― David Boreanaz

“Red hair stigmatizes you.”

― David Caruso

“I look fine. I’ve had no surgery apart from an operation I had decades ago to remove the fat under my eyes. My mum looked 30 when she was 60, so I guess I owe it all to genes and hair dye.”

― David Cassidy

“No self-respecting gay guy would have ever made some of the hair and clothing choices I am still trying to live down.”

― David Copperfield

“I first read ‘The Scarlet Letter’ when I was fifteen. In it, I found a familiar vision of religious intolerance to the one around me. I grew up in the 1980s, when televangelists, with their fluffed up hair and their tears, self-righteously denounced all kinds of sinners, reserving a special, full-throated enthusiasm for gay people.”

― David Ebershoff

“Granddad offered me one hundred dollars if I would cut my mop of curly hair into a neat military style. Just before the wedding, I got a light trim. It wasn’t enough for Granddad, and he didn’t pay.”

― David Eisenhower

“I’m very fortunate. I loved school and, when I went there, race, gangs and violence were not issues. There was a feeling, gone now, that you had to be presentable. If you hadn’t combed your hair, older black ladies – complete strangers – would come up to you in the street and pull out a comb and straighten your tie.”

― David Harewood

“I knew I was Chinese, but growing up, it never occurred to me that that had any particular implication or that it should differentiate me in any way. I thought it was a minor detail, like having red hair.”

― David Henry Hwang

“’Athletico Mince’ started life as a football podcast but has dropped the football, unless the latest on the state of the ‘hair island’ atop Steve McLaren’s head is your idea of football coverage.”

― David Hepworth

“I was distressed by the poor quality of the debate surrounding energy. I was also noticing so much green wash from politicians and big business. I was tired of the debate – the extremism, the nimbyism, the hair shirt. We need a constructive conversation about energy, not a Punch and Judy show. I just wanted to try to reboot the whole debate.”

― David J. C. MacKay

“From sixth grade on I was a real Pillsbury doughboy. Overweight, long hair, thick glasses.”

― David Keith

“People often don’t hydrate enough – they don’t drink enough water. One will see marked improvement in their overall wellness, in their skin tone, even in their hair, if they hydrate enough.”

― David Kirsch

“Clients like Kerry Washington stay energized by substituting high carb, high fat foods with a diet rich in lean protein and low-calorie, fiber-rich vegetables. These foods not only keep you trim but have an amazing impact on the shape of the body, the appearance of skin, hair, and nails.”

― David Kirsch

“I lost some weight, grew my hair and now every woman in America over 40 wants to date me. It’s their daughters I want to convince.”

― David Krumholtz

“I think the biggest thing you take from the stunt world is your understanding of the filmmaking process. For years, you’ve worked with every other department closely. You know hair, makeup, wardrobe, special effects, and you know what everybody’s needs are and their expectations. You also know how to collaborate with them.”

― David Leitch

“The weather was so cold in Lisbon when I arrived. I decided, ‘Let’s grow the hair to hide my ears.’ And after that, it became nice hair.”

― David Luiz

“When I was young, I was a kid that never stopped. I wanted to do everything; a lot of energy. I didn’t have this big hair. But I was a happy person.”

― David Luiz

“Yes, my father is bald, but I found a way to save my hair. I met with a doctor in Brazil who has developed a special treatment.”

― David Luiz

“I don’t paint the town red. But when I do go out, people always want to touch my hair. It happens every time.”

― David Lynch

“With Marouane’s hair, I actually wondered if it might take a bit of the pace off the ball when he went up for a header. But I soon realised it was part of his personality. Part of who he is.”

― David Moyes

“I’m always trying to push the envelope and go with a different hairstyle that you’re not going to see on anybody else. I have a really good grade of hair, and I can do a lot of different things with it.”

― David Otunga

“I’ve always liked long hair. My dad’s always had long hair, but he always tells me, ‘I never had it in a ponytail.’ And I say to him, ‘You weren’t an England goalie either, were ya.’”

― David Seaman

“I have no detectable hair style.”

― David Spade

― Davy Jones

“Hair pieces and head dresses have always been something that’s been part of my culture.”

― Dawn Richard

“I’ve been cutting my hair ever since college. I try to do that whenever it gets rough. I’m not too cheap to go the barber shop, but I mostly try to do that by myself. I try to keep my skills sharp.”

― D’Brickashaw Ferguson

“When I walked into the room to meet Michael Landon, it was clear he was a big-time star. To be around him was as far from Charles Ingalls as you could get. The hair was the same – no one touched his hair.”

― Dean Butler

“Chemo does its best to make you lose your femininity. You lose your hair. You lose your eyelashes. You lose your eyebrows.”

― Debbie Rowe

“I never wash my hair the night before an event – I call it second day hair, and it holds better.”

― Debby Ryan

“I like to have my hair grow, because I need to have hair for different roles. But I’m a woman, so I’m always cutting my hair off and wishing that I hadn’t.”

― Debi Mazar

“As a fair skinned blonde, I disappeared into the background. I’ve always been a loner, so I suppose dyeing my hair red was a way to say, ‘I’m here, I exist, I’m a human being and you can’t just push me aside.’”

― Deborah Ann Woll

“I studied voice for three months to get rid of my English accent. I changed my hair to blonde. I knew I could be sexy if I had to.”

― Deborah Kerr

“When I was young, I couldn’t imagine women of 60 falling in love. For one thing, people used to stay married; they weren’t out in the jungle, searching for romance. Besides, these women just looked so ancient – permed hair, beige cardis.”

― Deborah Moggach

“When Clinton first appeared on the national stage back in 1992, the young wife of the Arkansas governor running for president, she kept her natural-brown hair off her face with a headband.”

― Deborah Tannen

“An actress in a film starts every day with an hour and a half in front of a mirror, with hair and make-up and costumes.”

― Debra Winger

“Bill Clinton sitting on Air Force One getting his hair cut while people around the country cooled their heels and waited for him, became a metaphor for a populist president who had gotten drunk with the perks of his own power and was sort of, you know, not sensitive to what people wanted.”

― Dee Dee Myers

“I got into my very theatrical phase. I wore only black: a big black hat and wild hair and wild black clothes, and I carried a sword stick. I went there still looking like Miss Florida, and I came back looking very different.”

― Delta Burke

“I always had long hair. When you lose it, you realise just how important it is to your identity.”

― Delta Goodrem

“I love having my hair back. It is so important to how you feel, how you dress, how you look.”

― Delta Goodrem

“Why is electricity so expensive these days? Why does it cost so much for something I can make with a balloon and my hair?”

― Dennis Miller

“I felt like calling attention to AIDS. I had the AIDS ribbon colored into my hair during the playoffs in ’95.”

― Dennis Rodman

“You don’t have any communication between the Israelis and the Iranians. You have all sorts of local triggers for conflict. Having countries act on a hair trigger – where they can’t afford to be second to strike – the potential for a miscalculation or a nuclear war through inadvertence is simply too high.”

― Dennis Ross

“The Yankees have strict rules. You can have a mustache but no other facial hair.”

― Derek Jeter

“I wore a cloak for many years, I had long hair, I may have had a drop earring for a week and I fancied myself as a philosopher poet but was somewhere more in the gay female leisure pirate.”

― Derren Brown

“We film ‘Resurrection’ in Atlanta, where humidity is a force to be reckoned with, especially for those of us who have naturally curly hair. I would love for the au naturel look of the ’60s to come back. No make up, no hair products – just sun-kissed skin, freckles, and crazy curls.”

― Devin Kelley

“My signature dish – something I’ve been making since I was 10 – is angel hair pasta with shrimp and feta in a white-wine basil sauce with tomatoes, because it’s absolutely amazing.”

“I take hair growth, natural vitamins and sleep on silk pillow cases.”

― Devon Windsor

“I love hair oils, lipsticks, and conditioners. I have so many.”

― Devon Windsor

“I put on moisturizer on my face and leave-in conditioner in my hair before I go to bed. I’m blonde, so if I don’t put in leave-in, my hair will break.”

― Devon Windsor

“I am not so bad, actually, at doing my own makeup, so for more low-key events, I’ll do my own, but for something like ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ Icons Party, I would definitely get a makeup artist or a hair artist if I had time.”

― Devon Windsor

“I put in oils and creams in my hair 3 times a day, and it just soaks it up, and then I have a bunch of special shampoos.”

― Devon Windsor

― Dhani Jones

“My mother always said I must be part Mongolian because of my lotus-pale complexion and squid-ink black hair.”

― Diane Ackerman

“I look a little bit like Barbie and talk a little bit like Ken. It’s easier for me to sit in the middle of the boys’ club than to be surrounded by people concerned about getting their hair and nails done.”

― Diane Farr

“But quite honestly, personally, I was much more concerned – I mean, there’s not much I can do about my appearance obviously other than spending four hours in hair and makeup.”

― Diane Kruger

“The largest room in the world is room for improvement. You know, some mornings my thighs are fat. Some days my hair looks great. That’s the human condition.”

― Diane Lane

― Diane Sawyer

“I used to be very insecure about my curly hair, because I lived in a country where everybody had blonde straight hair.”

“I am a fast dresser, 30 minutes max with hair and makeup. I don’t have a uniform, but I like to be comfortable.”

― Diane von Furstenberg

“I definitely wasn’t cool in high school. I really wasn’t. I did belong to many of the clubs and was in leadership on yearbook and did the musical theater route, so I had friends in all areas. But I certainly did not know what to wear, did not know how to do my hair, all those things.”

― Dianna Agron

“I’m a huge fan of Billy Idol. I spiked my hair every day like him in 7th and 8th grade.”

― Dierks Bentley

“My hair’s a pain in live performance. I’m always inhaling it: I almost choked to death a couple of times.”

― Dimebag Darrell

“Young players try and imitate the best players like Ronaldo. They try to imitate the hair, the clothes, the cars, the tricks. I try to tell them how hard Cristiano Ronaldo trained in training and after training. He only wanted to be the best. Everything else came after.”

― Dimitar Berbatov

“I’ve done everything from cater, wait tables, pre-school teacher, painting, to being Cinderella, Elmo, a clown, nanny, selling hair… I would do kid’s parties and entertain and do magic and paint faces and balloon animals. The highlight of my life.”

― Diora Baird

“I think colouring your hair is the best way to get a new look.”

― Disha Patani

“Conditioning is very important when it comes to hair. One should oil hair on a regular basis for hair nourishment.”

― Disha Patani

“Most actresses have multiple commitments, from films to endorsements, that require us to maintain a particular look over a long period. Hence, there is never an opportunity to experiment with hair, so we just settle for a neutral look that we can work with across projects.”

― Disha Patani

“Since childhood, my mother made sure I oiled my hair and conditioned them properly every week. I still follow that regimen. Plus, I have naturally good quality hair.”

― Disha Patani

“I strongly believe that your hair plays a significant and impactful role in helping you change your look or make a style statement.”

― Disha Patani

“I love glamour and artificial beauty. I love the idea of artifice and dressing up and makeup and hair.”

― Dita Von Teese

“Playing mother to grown-up kids does not allure me much. I will not feel comfortable. Also, my fans will not like me with grey hair.”

― Divyanka Tripathi

“This head has risen above its hair in a moment of abandon known only to men who have drawn their feet out of their boots to walk awhile in the corridors of the mind.”

― Djuna Barnes

“If I hadn’t been a woman, I’d be a drag queen for sure. I like all that flair and I’d be dressing up in them high heels and putting on the big hair. I’d be like Ru Paul.”

― Dolly Parton

“Someone once asked me, ‘How long does it take to do your hair.’ I said, ‘I don’t know, I’m never there.’”

― Dolly Parton

“I got very lucky with ‘Harry Potter.’ I got that role because I’m a ginger! Red hair was my only qualification!”

― Domhnall Gleeson

“I went to Brooklyn College and met this beautiful Jewish girl named Merle, with dark hair, exotic looking and brilliant. So we got married and had three children.”

― Dominic Chianese

“I got heckled by a woman, and my riposte fixed upon her unfortunate hair texture, only for her to remove her wig and reveal to the room the horrors of chemotherapy.”

― Dominic Holland

“I was awkward-looking with huge brown eyes, dark brown, pencil-straight hair styled into an old-school Romanian bowl haircut from the 1980s. And I was very, very small. I was always the tiniest kid on my street and in my classes at school… The gym was the one place I didn’t have to worry about feeling awkward for being so petite.”

― Dominique Moceanu

“I especially enjoyed some of the old hairstyles, with my hair down to my shoulders and a beard. And Henley’s nickname used to be ‘Furry Basketball’ because he had that fro. It was fun to just look at what was going on in that era and how we presented ourselves on stage.”

― Don Felder

“If I had a pull on ‘One of These Nights,’ on the first high note on ‘One of These Nights,’ that was just a tiny hair flat or something, I could just feel Henley’s eyes scouring into the back of my head. No mistakes were allowed, and it really kept the quality at a high level.”

― Don Felder

“Both my New Hampshire great-grandfathers wore facial hair: the Copperhead who fought in the war and the sheep farmer too old for combat.”

― Donald Hall

“Sunday night is curry night. I always order a spinach paneer and a chicken tikka. There’s usually something good on TV like ‘Mr Selfridge’ or ‘Downton Abbey,’ so I’ll watch them before I have to think about blowdrying my hair and all the other boring stuff us girls have to do!”

― Donna Air

“If it’s a regular day, I won’t wear any makeup, just leave my hair down and head out to the car.”

― Donna Karan

“Here’s my definition of a great beach read – a fabulous story that sucks me in like a black hole and when it’s over, it jettisons my bones across the galaxy with a hair on fire mission to convince everyone I know that they must read that book or they will die.”

― Dorothea Benton Frank

“It took me two years to get an appointment with Mr. Suga who cut my hair for the Olympics. Who knew? I had no idea that it would be popular.”

― Dorothy Hamill

“I never really liked my short hair; it never occurred to me that people would want it.”

― Dorothy Hamill

“I always had short hair, and I hated my short hair. I was always mistaken for a boy, but my mom wouldn’t let me change my hair because she was always chasing me around with a hairbrush, and it was always tangled, so she just would cut it off, and she’s right: short hair did suit me.”

― Dorothy Hamill

“Nature is one great big wood-chipper. Sooner or later, everything shoots out the other end in a spray of blood, bones and hair.”

― Douglas Coupland

“On TV people look at your hair and then they look at your skin, and then they look at your clothes, and by the time they’re listening to what you’re saying, you’re off the screen.”

― Douglas Coupland

“When I was a kid, I always wanted to dye my hair crazy colors.”

― Dove Cameron

“George Carlin is kind of my template now because George Carlin before was straight laced regular comic and he had short hair, a tie, suit, nightclub guy. Then he said screw it, let his hair grow, just started telling what he thought was the truth. So that’s what I’m trying to do.”

― Drew Carey

“I think the ’90s is the reason why I recently had to find natural haircare products to allow my hair to grow. That was a time where they were processing your hair, and it was a time when African-American women wanted that straight hair.”

― Drew Sidora

“Movement and physics: These are the fundamentals of animation. You don’t notice that stuff if it’s done well, but if fabric or liquid or hair moves weird, your brain is like, ‘Wait, that’s not real.’”

― Duke Johnson

“I’ve been waiting to have facial hair on camera for the longest time – I’m always playing teenagers, and I always have to shave. I’ll let you in on a little secret: I have sensitive skin, and I’m a sensitive guy, so shaving is something that I don’t look forward to.”

― Dustin Milligan

“I always feel better when my hair looks good.”

― Dylan Lauren

“When I was young, all the politicians looked like ancient Latin teachers or greengrocers. They were mumbly, stumbly men with their hair blowing in their eyes, walking into trees, opening the wrong door. They had no idea how to present themselves.”

― Dylan Moran

“I am an old geezer: a grandpa kind of a guy. I was born October 19, 1931. I have gray hair, a beard, and a little pot belly. I have two children who are over 30 years old and a sweet little granddaughter who is 11 years old.”

― Ed Emberley

“If you do a cable show, you have a radio show, whatever, if you’re fat and you’ve got red hair, look, they’re going to pick on you.”

― Ed Schultz

“I’ve always had really messy hair.”

― Ed Sheeran

“I’ve had years of teasing about my red hair, but I definitely think it toughened me up. If you’re ginger, you end up pretty quick-witted.”

― Ed Sheeran

“I do like my hair. It took a while to come around to the fact that it was quite a unique value point.”

― Ed Sheeran

“When I was a kid, in a very white boarding school in England in the ’90s, I had this sort of middle part that kids had – that sort of long, floppy hair. So I was always desperate to have long, floppy hair, and I would try and brush it and spray it, and it would just look like a Brillo pad!”

― Ed Weeks

“I still can’t believe that I went on ‘The Colbert Report’ myself; for the appearance I wore a lot of makeup, my hair was curled like a poodle’s, and I could barely breathe in my Spanx undergarments. But, hey – an authoress has to lean in, right?”

― Edan Lepucki

“The hair department is always on my case about washing my hair. I am incredibly lazy, and a brat about washing my hair.”

― Eden Sher

“Visually, my trademarks have always been my glasses and hair.”

― Edgar Davids

“The more I mistreat my hair, the stronger it grows back. I think it must be determined to survive.”

― Edie Campbell

“It is not by the gray of the hair that one knows the age of the heart.”

― Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

“James Salter is a consummate storyteller. His manners are precise and elegant; he has a splendid New York accent; he runs his hands through his gray hair and laughs boyishly.”

― Edward Hirsch

“I use my Bionic flat iron and hair dryer, all shampoo and conditioners are sulfate free, and keep the blow-drys to a minimum. If I can go two to three or even four days without washing my hair, I’ll just go for it. I know, sounds gross, but otherwise, I’d be frying my hair.”

― Edy Ganem

“I had a nice, pert nose but a plain round face and a mop of curly brown hair. That was not the photograph of a successful model.”

― Eileen Ford

“Particularly for back-to-school, braids are a great way of showcasing your personal style. It doesn’t stop at your clothes; it extends to how you wear your hair.”

― Elaine Welteroth

“Finding a store that sells synthetic hair in Kigali is easier than locating a Starbucks in New York City without Google Maps.”

― Elaine Welteroth

“It was so fun to see my hair all brushed out – it looked like caramel-flavored cotton candy!”

― Elaine Welteroth

“The thing about spending a lifetime under a long, bushy cloud of curls is that people naturally began associating me with my hair.”

― Elaine Welteroth

“Any major hair change comes with unpredictable and often unfiltered reactions.”

― Elaine Welteroth

“The biggest thing for me is keeping my hair moisturized. My go-tos are the Pantene Gold Series Hydrating Butter Cream and Intense Hydrating Oil.”

― Elana Meyers

“I had this awesome tennis teacher when I was 12 who was Icelandic. He looked like a Viking: long hair, and he was built like a rock and spoke with this accent.”

― Eline Powell

“I’m really into laces; I always accessorize with shoe laces whether I wear them as a belt, or attached to my shorts or in my hair or as a bracelet.”

― Eliza Doolittle

“I love dressing up. As kids, my friends and I would dress up as the Spice Girls – Posh Spice was my favourite because I had short brown hair like her.”

― Eliza Doolittle

“I’ve learned all my hair and makeup tricks on the set, and I incorporate all kinds of things when I’m getting ready, and I’m big on blotting papers. I get a very shiny forehead, which I like to call my inner glow coming out.”

― Elizabeth Banks

“I love having my hair blown dry by a stylist and I also truly enjoy being with my friends and family.”

― Elizabeth Daily

“The funny thing about voice over is you can go in in sweatpants and have your hair all messed up, and no one will see you, and you can still deliver the same great product.”

― Elizabeth Gillies

“I was a tomboy as a kid – I was skinny and had cropped hair and was often mistaken for a boy – and up until I was about six, I had my own very fluid ideas of gender in that I believed that, somehow, an individual could choose whether or not s/he wanted to be a boy or a girl.”

― Elizabeth Hand

“I love to see other women in pink. It’s good for every shade of skin and hair.”

― Elizabeth Hurley

“I don’t look presidential. I don’t wear, you know, three-piece suits and have my hair perfectly coiffed.”

― Elizabeth Marvel

“I love being super-tough, but if I need to put on a dress and do my hair and makeup, I can do that, too.”

― Elizabeth Rodriguez

“On a normal day, I crawl out of bed before 8 A.M., have a protein shake, chuck my gym kit on, and go for a class or personal-training session. When I’m back, I’ll have poached eggs with salmon or spinach for breakfast before my stylists arrive to do my hair – which takes ages. I then go wherever I am needed.”

― Ella Eyre

“I don’t wash my hair very often. Once a week if I can. Because the more you wash it, you end up stripping out the natural oils. What I like to do is just rinse out the products that I’ve used during the week and then put leave-in conditioner in and let it dry naturally.”

― Ella Eyre

“Focusing on the way I look makes me uncomfortable. I try to focus on the way I feel – I know what makes me feel better about myself. Reading my child a story makes me feel great, doing my hair nicely doesn’t.”

― Elle Macpherson

“I’m sure there’s somebody out there who doesn’t like Betty White because she’s short and has white hair.”

― Ellen DeGeneres

“But my eyes were riveted on a small slim woman her hair simply coiled into her neck, Katherine Glasier.”

― Ellen Wilkinson

“My first reaction when I watched Les Miserables was, ‘Wow, my hair looks good!’ They put half a wig in, and I was always kinda worried it was gonna make my head look twice as big!”

― Ellie Bamber

“I’m never happy with my face, my hair, I haven’t really got any boobs and I’m not really that tall.”

― Ellie Goulding

“I used to be obsessed with Pearl Jam, but I love having pink hair and kind of looking like a Barbie.”

― Ellie Goulding

“I’ve changed the way I look a bit but not intentionally. I’ve cut my hair. I’ve got a bit of pink in it and lately I’ve become a bit monochrome, wearing a lot of black and white.”

― Ellie Goulding

“My hair gets very light in the summer, but the problem with using all these products and going into the pool a lot is that my hair gets very yellow. I love purple shampoo!”

― Elsa Hosk

“I use argan oil when I have dry ends. A good hair brush, like a Mason Pearson, is great because it doesn’t damage the hair. I like Kerastase shampoo and conditioner best.”

― Elsa Hosk

“I keep my hair gray, so I like silver and platinum. For women who dye their hair, they can wear whatever they want.”

― Elsa Peretti

“Give a man a chance, and he’ll be so casual that he won’t bathe, shave, or comb his hair. He’ll just depend on his animal magnetism to get him by.”

― Elsa Schiaparelli

“When I was young, I wanted to be the face of a makeup campaign or a hair campaign, so that’s something that I’ve always dreamed of that hopefully comes along. And then obviously starring with Ryan Gosling in a movie wouldn’t be so bad, either.”

― Emeraude Toubia

“The ’90s were really just bad for fashion and hair.”

― Emilia Clarke

“I never get my hair done. I just do it myself.”

“It’s not all about having the perfect body, perfect hair, perfect smile.”

― Emily Atack

“The jungle has taught me to accept who I really am – my skin is play and freckly, my bum and hips are big, and my hair is frizzy – that’s who I am.”

― Emily Atack

“Just because we wear hair extensions and make-up doesn’t mean we’re the punchline for every joke.”

― Emily Atack

“That was the biggest fear for me – being seen without my straight hair, my makeup or fake tan, being seen without my armour on. That terrified me.”

― Emily Atack

“I want a part playing a really ugly geek, with no make-up and my hair all tied back, so I could just be a character without worrying how I look.”

― Emily Atack

“I had no portrait, now, but am small, like the wren; and my hair is bold, like the chestnut bur; and my eyes, like the sherry in the glass, that the guest leaves.”

― Emily Dickinson

“Darcy, the heroine of ‘Something Blue,’ is quite shallow and opinionated. At one point, she commented that she dislikes ‘gingers,’ i.e., men with red hair. I received several emails from fiery redheads who said they were offended by ‘my’ comments. I had to remind them that it is fiction.”

― Emily Giffin

“I’m just happy to be a film where for once I don’t have to worry about my hair, because my managers are always complaining about my hair looking depressing in my movies. Which is true. I mean, it’s true.”

― Emily Mortimer

“My hair is very straight – people always think that I’ve ironed it when I get to set.”

― Emily Ratajkowski

“I like going in the ocean and leaving my hair for two days with the saltwater beachy look. I think that is part of the reason I would love to cut my hair short. I just wouldn’t ever have to think about it.”

― Emily Ratajkowski

“What no one tells you – or maybe they did tell me, and I chose not to listen – is that there’s really no ‘coming back’ from bleached platinum hair. You sort of have to cut it all off and start over.”

― Emily Weiss

“When you own a pair of haircutting scissors, you cut your own hair constantly.”

― Emily Weiss

“I’ve had some not-great experiences with laser hair removal, probably because I haven’t done what they told me.”

― Emily Weiss

“Unlike a celebrity, there’s nothing I won’t try and nothing I won’t talk about when it comes to my hair. If I were to get a tattoo on my inner upper arm, it would read, ‘Change thy hair, change thyself.’”

― Emily Weiss

“I just grew up loving beauty products. Going to the mall, and the Stila counter in the ’90s. I was obsessed with hair dye.”

― Emily Weiss

“Any time I had my hair in a ponytail, it would give me a headache by the end of the day.”

― Emma Gonzalez

“I feel like in my senior year of high school, I had my clothes a lot more figured out. I had my hair figured out.”

― Emma Gonzalez

“It’s Florida. Hair is just an extra sweater I’m forced to wear.”

― Emma Gonzalez

“I shaved my head a week or two before senior year. People used to ask me why, and the main reason is that having hair felt terrible.”

― Emma Gonzalez

“Read at a time when everything feels intense, seminal, and like you’re the first person to discover it, freshman year of college, Carol Gilligan’s ‘In a Different Voice’ made my hair stand on end with awe.”

― Emma McLaughlin

“So one day, in a fit of trying to do something different, I just dyed my hair dark brown and got my first role a week later, after which I thought: ‘People are closed-minded, man! Like a different hair colour changes everything!’”

― Emma Stone

“As I’ve got older, and since I cut all my hair off, I’ve felt a bit more liberated about trying different things out.”

― Emma Watson

“When I was modeling in Japan, I could blend in a little because of my hair, but my roommates with blonde hair got harassed. People would touch their hair and grope them in the subway. Actually, a lot of groping happens in the subway in Japan, but that’s probably true of subways everywhere.”

― Emmanuelle Vaugier

“Guys usually like a very natural look. I think it’s bad idea to wear a strong lip on a first date – or for the first few dates. I’m always too nervous he’ll kiss it off – if I’m lucky enough to get a kiss! I also think soft, sexy hair is important.”

― Emmy Rossum

“The only time I ever appeared in the ‘Enquirer’ was for a piece about people who let their hair grow gray. I guess I’m not much of a wild child.”

― Emmylou Harris

“I try to keep myself young as possible. I vow to never let my hair go grey.”

― Engelbert Humperdinck

“I look my best when I take my helmet off after a long motorcycle ride. I have a glow and a bit of helmet hair.”

― Eric Bana

“If a woman is bed-heady and it doesn’t look put on, it’s pretty sexy. But when a woman is wearing a really smart dress with great heels and her hair is pulled back, that’s terribly sexy too – like an Audrey Hepburn kind of thing.”

― Eric Mabius

“Moisture, moisture, moisture is the key to maintaining our hair. I use water-based products and try to put something on my hair every day. I pay special attention to my edges, as they are so fragile.”

― Erica Ash

“My natural hair is short and naturally grows to frame my face. So that’s my favorite. I also like tree-braids. They’re easy, fast, there’s not much pulling on your hair, and they are very lightweight.”

― Erica Ash

“My hair is quite silky and straight; however, every time I wash my hair in Hyderabad, it almost turns into a broom. The water is quite hard, and I didn’t realise what the problem was until I saw another friend of mine facing a similar issue.”

― Erica Fernandes

“I am just old-fashioned enough to prefer long hair.”

― Erich von Stroheim

“Bobbed hair makes women look uniform. They lack individuality.”

― Erich von Stroheim

“I don’t know about the hair. I’ve had it since I was a kid, and when I look at myself in the mirror, it looks quite normal. But then when I look at myself in a photo, I realise that my hair is basically bigger than my head! There’s quite a lot of interest in my hair, which is strange, as for me, it’s normal!”

― Erik Hassle

“When I did stand-up at U.C.B., and I had a blog for a couple of years that started my writing career, ‘Totally Confident and Completely Insecure,’ it was the same kind of self-deprecating humor and stories about being out in L.A. and being treated like a loser at a hair salon because you are not famous.”

― Erin Foster

“My favourite beauty look is definitely ’70s beauty – sun kissed skin, wavy hair and defined eyes.”

― Erin Heatherton

“You can put in a curl or put on a lip color or mascara, but the important thing is that the health of your skin and hair is shining through.”

― Erin Heatherton

“I make sure the foods I eat will benefit the appearance of my hair, skin and nails.”

― Erin Heatherton

“Backstage at the Victoria’s Secret show is pure madness. Big personalities, big hair, and tons of press.”

― Erin Heatherton

“When I first began modeling, I was very conventional looking. I had hair down to my waist in a side parting – almost church-like. But beneath the sheath of hair lay this Amazonian, strong-looking frame.”

― Erin O’Connor

“My hair is an untidy bob. I am very dark, but I embellish the roots because I am white in one clump.”

― Erin O’Connor

“When I’m not working, I want to be the version of the person that I was born to be. I was born with curly hair. It fits my personality, and it’s totally who I am. I am rough around the edges, and I am not a polished girl.”

― Erin Wasson

“What’s with you men? Would hair stop growing on your chest if you asked directions somewhere?”

― Erma Bombeck

“We hear a lot in this country about family, and ‘American Family’ just shows us a portrait we haven’t seen as much of yet. ‘American Family’ lets us know that being American isn’t about the color of your hair or eyes or skin: it’s really a state of mind.”

― Esai Morales

“I was at a premiere, and these girls blurted out, ‘We love your hair!’ That made me laugh.”

― Ethan Peck

“I look a lot like my mom. I’m the only one of my siblings with red hair, and she had bright red hair. I always have felt incredibly connected to her.”

― Ethan Slater

“My hair is my identity.”

― Ethan Zohn

“I have plenty of invitations to go places, lots to do. If I’m not working, I go to have my hair taken care of and work at needlepoint.”

― Ethel Merman

“I’m a dark blonde, yes. I dyed my hair blue, then black, when I was 14. I thought the colour was more flattering and matched my skin tone. I don’t think I’d ever change back unless it was for a film.”

― Eva Green

“I used to have a sort of spiky haircut and it just feels better to have short hair again.”

― Evan Dando

“Black Friday is not another bad hair day in Wall Street. It’s the term used by American retailers to describe the day after the Thanksgiving Holiday, seen as the semi-official start of Christmas shopping season.”

― Evan Davis

“Anyone who says you can’t do anything with short hair is wrong! Every day, my style turns into something new, and there are so many different ways you can wear it.”

― Evan Rachel Wood

“I was a real tomboy for most of my life. Then I went through a really girlie period, then through a goth phase. I was so obsessed with my hair and makeup, and I was having so much fun as a teenager playing with my look.”

― Evan Rachel Wood

“I got the most surprising reaction was when I had bleached blonde hair with a black stripe at the bottom – all of the ends were black. That one got the most attention – good and bad.”

― Evan Rachel Wood

“I just like short hair on women; I think it’s cool.”

― Evangeline Lilly

“I love the feeling of the fresh air on my face and the wind blowing through my hair.”

― Evel Knievel

“I keep up with everything in terms of health, fitness, nutrition, skin care, hair, nails. Really, everything. I’m an avid reader of every women’s health newsletter from every hospital in the country.”

― Evelyn Lauder

“Bolivia’s majority Indian population was always excluded, politically oppressed and culturally alienated. Our national wealth, our raw materials, was plundered. Indios were once treated like animals here. In the 1930s and 40s, they were sprayed with DDT to kill the vermin on their skin and in their hair whenever they came into the city.”

― Evo Morales

“It’s all about the whey protein and multi-mineral complexes I consume – it’s good for my hair, and it’s good for my skin.”

“John Travolta is getting old, despite what his hair is trying to tell us.”

― Faith Salie

“I think my daughter looks beautiful regardless if she’s losing her baby teeth or if she’s having a bad hair day.”

― Farrah Abraham

“Never get involved with a business that you can’t really be hands-on – that if your employees quit, you can’t run yourself. If I can’t cut hair, why open a barbershop?”

― Fat Joe

“The woman with dark hair, wide hips, and a few extra pounds has always been the essence of beauty in Morocco.”

― Fatema Mernissi

“I go to the hamam and put henna on my skin and hair. Even when I go to New York, I let the shower run hot to create a steam hamam at my hotel. But when I finish with the bath, I put on expensive French creams.”

― Fatema Mernissi

“I can’t tell you what a pleasure it is to just put my hair under a wig cap and slap on a wig that’s already done. It’s dress up for your hair!”

― Felicity Huffman

“It’s only because I feel like such a philistine spending all that time in hair and makeup that I started to knit. I used to spend that time studying Italian and French. Then after I had two kids, my brain turned to mush and I took up knitting.”

― Felicity Huffman

“I actually always had short hair as a kid, and it’s really liberating. I recommend it. It’s just very easy. I don’t have to brush it.”

― Felicity Jones

“I was a very rotund child with short hair, and for some reason, I always had black ballet shoes. I was like the Wednesday Addams of ballet.”

― Felicity Jones

“I actually studied literature at university, so I’m much more of an arts-based person, but I remember I actually did enjoy physics because you got to do weird experiments. I remember we did this thing with static where we all had to put our hands on this static ball to see that your hair would all stand on end.”

― Felicity Jones

“When I was much younger, I sometimes felt rejected by feminists because of an image that I sold because it paid the bills. Any fool could tell my hair is dyed.”

― Felicity Kendal

“It’s nice not to have lines when you frown, especially on TV. I don’t know why people make such a fuss about it. No one is interested if a woman has her teeth capped or her hair dyed.”

― Felicity Kendal

“I finally found the product that helps mend my damaged hair and prevent breakage. Avon’s Advance Techniques Damage Repair 3D Rescue Leave-In Treatment makes it look and feel healthier.”

― Fergie

“Writing a novel is a terrible experience, during which the hair often falls out and the teeth decay.”

― Flannery O’Connor

“I hated my big hair. I always wore it straight.”

“I couldn’t wait until I grew up. I used to look at my mom’s stockings and put them on with her high heels and mess with my hair.”

― Florence Griffith Joyner

“I used to be teased for the way I wore my hair at school. I used to do things like wear a different-colored sock on each leg.”

― Florence Griffith Joyner

“If you asked me to go back to being 14 or 15, I couldn’t – it was a terrifying time. I was so awkward in my own skin. I used to hide behind my hair because I was so ridiculously self-conscious.”

― Florence Welch

“When I first started, especially because I got the Critics’ Choice before I’d released an album, there was a lot of scrutiny on what my character was, what my background was, what colour my hair was. I fought quite hard for the music to overtake the personality aspect.”

― Florence Welch

“Well I could have been just a writer. I had been a hair dresser. I could have stuck with that.”

― Fran Drescher

“I’m very lucky because my eyes work with almost any hair color. Thanks for the genetics, parents.”

― Frances Bean Cobain

“Everybody dresses like a teenager. Everybody dyes their hair. Everybody is concerned about a smooth face.”

― Frances McDormand

“The thing about doing anything artificial to your hair is that you have to look after it. So you’re always vulnerable to the weather and time.”

― Francesca Annis

“Castor oil has long been a used as a remedy for a whole host of ailments including arthritis, digestion, insomnia and even period cramps. But it also stimulates hair growth.”

― Franchesca Ramsey

“Whether you have locs, natural hair, wear a relaxer, or rock wigs and weaves, thinning edges can be a frustrating issue.”

― Franchesca Ramsey

“My hair videos are usually styling videos answering people’s questions about natural hair.”

― Franchesca Ramsey

“I always make sure to moisturize my hair. I love natural oils, coconut oil. Moisture is one thing you can never go wrong with.”

― Franchesca Ramsey

“I was looking for help with styling my hair and was really struggling to find it, and I have very much been of the mind that if you see a need for something, and you can create it yourself, then go for it, so I started creating content around beauty.”

― Franchesca Ramsey

“Women really love their hair. Like, our hair is very important.”

― Franchesca Ramsey

“If I know you, and you want to touch my hair, you should ask me first, and most of the time I’ll say yes. But if I don’t know you, and you just reach out and touch me without asking or touch while simultaneously asking, I’m going to give you a side eye.”

― Franchesca Ramsey

“I can recall an instance where I was in a meeting at work giving a presentation in front of my board of directors. I was taking questions at the end and someone asks, ‘Is that your hair real?’ The man then reached out and started stroking my hair. It was completely bizarre to me.”

― Franchesca Ramsey

“I initially started making videos about my hair because I was struggling to style it and didn’t know where to find help. Similarly, I started creating comedy content and doing characters and talking about things that were important to me because I didn’t find a place to do that in the career that I wanted as an actress.”

― Franchesca Ramsey

“Doesn’t everyone have their hair done?”

― Francois Hollande

“In a lot of cases, makeup is a fantastic help, and that’s why women love makeup in general. It’s a fantastic way to help somebody look great. It’s not the only way, of course, but it’s a major accessory, along with hair, clothes, lighting, all those things.”

― Francois Nars

“The right moment wears a full head of hair: when it has been missed, you can’t get it back; it’s bald in the back of the head and never turns around.”

― Francois Rabelais

“For some reason, I wrote about the bed we slept in when I was a kid. It was a half-acre of misery, that bed, sagging in the middle, red hair sticking out of the mattress, the spring gone and the fleas leaping all over the place.”

― Frank McCourt

“I guess I’ve maintained my hair. I’m like a Donald Trump. I have a good, solid head of hair, and that’s been my trademark all these years.”

― Frankie Avalon

“I think I’d like my hair to be perfect.”

― Frankie Cosmos

“The way my body is viewed in the world is different than a male body. People are going to write about the performance, but they’re probably also going to be writing about what I was wearing or my hair, which just doesn’t happen to men.”

― Frankie Cosmos

“I used to break a lot of clubs. I probably was a little different than your average junior player. I did have a lot longer hair and a lot more brown hair. But my demeanor, you know, really from maybe my second, third year on Tour, has gotten a lot more even keel.”

― Fred Couples

“Some of the Christopher Guest movies, when I’m not really like myself, when I have my hair dyed blonde or had a faux-hawk haircut. Those I like to watch because it takes you away from your real self.”

― Fred Willard

“I think my wife saw a picture of the rock group Journey, and they’re kind of aging, and the one guy had dyed blonde hair with black roots, and… my idea was to get a little earring, I wanted to have a dangling earring.”

― Fred Willard

“I have a guy who does my hair. He’s a car nut. And he was taking motorcycle lessons. And, what was my point?”

― Fred Willard

“When you doubt one thing about yourself, you start thinking there’s also something wrong with your hair, your body, your clothes, your accent.”

― Freida Pinto

“I was slicking my hair back when I was in sixth grade.”

― G-Eazy

“I remember, when I was ten, I wanted to look like Em. I had the bleached blonde hair.”

― G-Eazy

“I certainly used to wish that I was skinny, lighter-skinned, with long, pretty hair. But only because I used to get made fun of for being the absolute opposite. I didn’t see all of that stuff as the American Dream. I just wanted to look normal. Now that I’m older, I really do feel like I am a beautiful girl.”

― Gabourey Sidibe

“I always play with a very high ponytail so that my hair doesn’t bother me.”

― Garbine Muguruza

“We all fall in love with someone for the person they are – not because of their race, their hair, or any of the frivolous things that go away in time.”

― Garrett Clayton

“It’s not the hair on your head that matters. It’s the kind of hair you have inside.”

― Garry Shandling

“We didn’t gel with Poison and the Bon Jovi. Bon Jovi was the best of the pop metal bands, but we never fit in with the hair metal stuff. We were never as hip as the Chili Peppers. We were in the middle.”

― Gary Cherone

“I wouldn’t say I’m vain – I’m just in a job where the way you look is important. Well, at least the facelift wasn’t vanity, but the hair was.”

― Gary Numan

“There’s no white comic that sells tickets to black people like me. They’re going to get their hair done, get a new outfit, and come out to see a white dude.”

― Gary Owen

“Our redneck reputation back then was originally just because we had long hair. Back in the ’60s and the early ’70s, in the South that was kind of a no-no. At all the Army and Navy bases we’d play, we would get into fights with the soldiers over our hair. But I think our music overshadowed everything else.”

― Gary Rossington

“I think ‘Hair’ is the kind of show that benefits from the live experience – it needs to be seen and heard.”

― Gavin Creel

“I was in ‘Hair,’ which didn’t work in London, but it was a show we all believed in.”

― Gavin Creel

“It was tough for him in that newsroom with Ted Baxter getting all the glory and this poor guy doing all the work. Murray worried so much he worried his hair off!”

― Gavin MacLeod

“I was a really girly girl when I was younger. I only wore pink until I was at least 12. Think of me in culottes with a Bagpuss T-shirt and frizzy hair. Oh, and I was a fat child. It was bad news.”

― Gayle Rankin

“The ’80s were the worst period. You had these horrible pop bands growing their hair and calling themselves metal.”

― Geezer Butler

“The industry is quite chauvinistic generally. Expectations of women, girls, what they should look like, how they should be, what they should say, what they should wear, how their hair should be, what colour their skin should be.”

― Gemma Arterton

“I don’t want to be about the way I look – my body, my hair, my makeup, all those boring things.”

― Gemma Arterton

“I don’t colour my hair, and I look like the back end of a bus, so I get asked to play old people.”

― Gemma Jones

“I knew I had to be on stage. I always felt like there was something bigger and better for me. If not that, I would be a hair stylist for sure. I almost enrolled at Vidal Sassoon hair academy in Santa Monica.”

― Gena Lee Nolin

“What a lot of people don’t realise is that damage to hair starts from washing your hair in a rush and not taking all the product out such as leave-in conditioners. So I always make sure that I cleanse my hair properly and get the shampoo and conditioner completely out.”

― Genelia D’Souza

“You forget how many people watch TV until you come into a town like this. Everybody knows you, and I’m always humbled, especially when there are 500 little kids who all have their hair done like yours and want to be designers.”

― Genevieve Gorder

“Nobody ever said that growing old would be easy. Just having to hold the newspaper out in your forties and then hair growing out of unusual parts of your body in your fifties. It’s tough on the ego.”

― Geoffrey Rush

“I paint German artists whom I admire. I paint their pictures, their work as painters, and their portraits too. But oddly enough, each of these portraits ends up as a picture of a woman with blonde hair. I myself have never been able to work out why this happens.”

― Georg Baselitz

“My long hair and the sideburns made me stand out, really, because my hairstyle was completely different to the other footballers of that era.”

― George Best

“I was 19 or 20 when The Beatles were at their peak, and I was coming up to the peak of my career, too. I was also the first footballer to have long hair, and that’s how I got my nickname ‘the Fifth Beatle.’”

― George Best

“I got makeup tests and hair tests for ‘Versailles,’ and the main thing they were obsessed with was that my hands were disgusting. I had three years of Irish dirt under my nails. I had to have manicures and everything.”

― George Blagden

“Too bad that all the people who know how to run the country are busy driving taxicabs and cutting hair.”

― George Burns

“Too bad all the people who know how to run this country are busy running taxicabs or cutting hair.”

― George Burns

“I’m the least metrosexual cat you’ve ever met. I’ve never had my fingernails or toenails done, and I’ve cut my own hair longer than other people have cut my hair.”

― George Clooney

“There’s a certain cruelty to being on a big screen as your eyelids start to sag and your hair falls out and turns gray that you either have to be able to handle or not. What you can’t do is try to force yourself into roles that you could have played or would have played ten years earlier.”

― George Clooney

“You don’t want to try to look younger, because you’ll look wrong. You dye your hair, you look wrong. You wear a bad toupee, you look wrong. You wear makeup to hide things, you get your eyes done, you look wrong.”

― George Clooney

“A few dozen changes to the genome of a modern elephant – to give it subcutaneous fat, woolly hair and sebaceous glands – might suffice to create a variation that is functionally similar to the mammoth. Returning this keystone species to the tundras could stave off some effects of warming.”

― George M. Church

“Men’s fame is like their hair, which grows after they are dead, and with just as little use to them.”

― George Villiers

“When you’re young, no one cares who your parents are, although Mum would arrive to pick me up in her full hair and make-up and fur, and I used to say, ‘Can’t you just dress normally, like all the other mums?’ I wanted her to blend in more, but I’ve always been really proud of Mum – as proud as she is of me.”

― Georgia May Jagger

“I do have bad hair days. If I fall asleep with it slightly damp, I wake up and it’ll all be piled up on top in a mess.”

― Georgia May Jagger

“Basically, my hair is very dry from all the backcombing! Hairdressers prefer if your hair is dry and damaged, as it makes it easier to style.”

― Georgia May Jagger

“It’s very hard when you do photocalls. You have to be on time, you have to be all cheesy smiles, and have your hair and make-up done, and be into it. It’s not like a photoshoot. You have to really put the cheese factor in. I think you have to be more willing to go for it.”

― Georgia Salpa

“I never spend money on hair bands. I just go to a ribbon-trimming store.”

― Georgina Bloomberg

“My wedding was at home, so I didn’t really want to wear a veil in my house. Instead I wore a lot of diamond hair clips. They were brooches, actually, designed by Lorraine Schwartz.”

― Georgina Chapman

“And one of the things that I learned was you can’t generalise at all about a woman in a veil. You can’t think you know her story, because she will confound you over and over again. She may be an engineer or a diplomat or a doctor. Or she may be an unbelievable babe with bleached hair down to her waist.”

― Geraldine Brooks

“I remember when ‘Grease’ came out, I used to force my mum to try and grease my hair back, and it was never long enough, and literally I’d be screaming at her, ‘Do it. Just do it!’.”

― Gerard Butler

“When I was younger, I had pink underneath my hair, and I got detention. I went to an all-girls school where you wore a uniform, and pink hair was not OK.”

― Gia Coppola

“So many of the kids on television have really nice clothes, perfect skin and hair.”

― Gia Coppola

“I usually do my hair and makeup in 30 to 45 minutes, and if my hair is dirty, I’ll just put it in a bun or a ponytail. If it’s in a bun, I’ll part it down the middle and do a low bun with a couple pieces in the front coming down.”

― Gigi Hadid

“I don’t really have the patience to do my hair, which is why it’s always parted down the middle, slicked, in a low ponytail or a messy high bun. I’m too lazy to do my own hair, but I like doing my makeup.”

― Gigi Hadid

“I like experimenting with different hair care, and when I get sick of it, I always mix it up. Ghd makes this mousse that I add to John Frieda’s Frizz Ease, and it makes a ponytail hold really well.”

― Gigi Hadid

“As a kid in the eighties, I didn’t need much disposable income. I went to Catholic school – white shirt, plaid skirt – so fashion choices were limited. But youth finds a way. For me and my schoolmates, neon argyle socks were a crucial barometer of coolness. Hair ribbons, too, and they didn’t come cheap.”

― Gillian Flynn

“Female violence is a specific brand of ferocity. It’s invasive. A girlfight is all teeth and hair, spit and nails – a much more fearsome thing to watch than two dudes clobbering each other.”

― Gillian Flynn

“When I get a new script, I write a record of how many costume and make-up changes I have. I cross-check them against the shooting schedule and then consult with the hair and make-up designers.”

― Gina Bellman

“There is nothing worse than sitting in the make-up trailer knowing that the whole crew are twiddling their thumbs waiting for you to change your hair from straight to curly or up to down. Sometimes it can’t be avoided.”

― Gina Bellman

“Number one is that it just scares people! Your hair is standing up on your arms, or at least that there’s a few moments when you’re jumping. That’s what makes it a good horror movie.”

― Gina Philips

“Everything goes with short hair. It’s bananas.”

― Ginnifer Goodwin

“I really am super lazy and doing long hair, especially mine, is a big pain in the butt. It’s filled with cowlicks and kinks and curls and frizz – and it was taking too much time in the morning.”

― Ginnifer Goodwin

“I have very curly hair and I straighten it every day – it takes maybe two minutes. I can’t imagine anyone having a bigger challenge than I do in the kinkiness that is my crazy ‘fro.’”

― Ginnifer Goodwin

“I was on ‘Junior Star Search’ when I was 10 years old, in the acting category. The adult version of ‘Star Search’ didn’t have an acting category, but for the kids, they had an acting category. It was the strangest thing. It was full blown 1980s, with big hair, mullets, and the whole deal.”

― Giovanni Ribisi

“When I was a teenager, I was fat. I was shy. I wore glasses. I had a big eyebrow and hair all over my body. They were years of torture.”

― Gloria Estefan

“Whenever I have short ,it’s important for me to be inspired by people with short hair.”

― Goapele

“I wanted it to be back to a state where it felt like it was thriving, so I think that my hair’s happiest natural, and there’s that hairstyle for everyone where you feel like, ‘My hair is agreeing with this,’ so I just cut it off recently again, and I’m going back natural.”

― Goapele

“My hair story has been unique because my mom’s a German Jew, so her hair is way different than my hair. She was always learning on my hair growing up, but I would sit there for hours, and she did learn how to braid hair. Early on, it was a lot of tears while my mom was braiding my hair.”

― Goapele

“There are some parents who always have their daughter’s hair whipped. Mine wasn’t always like that, but I appreciate that both my parents were into me having natural hair, so they did find Anota Scott, who I was going to for my cornrows and wrapping last year and a couple years before that.”

― Goapele

“It’s always liberating to feel like I’m changing my hair and know that my fans are supporting that. I like to feel like I’m really expressing myself, and when people embrace it, it feels like an authentic connection.”

― Goapele

“After I grew some facial hair, I looked a bit older, and I guess that’s what the modeling world wanted because I started booking more luxury brands.”

― Godfrey Gao

“I don’t like facial hair, and I don’t like kissing facial hair, as you cant find the lips.”

― Goldie Hawn

“Let the devil catch you but by a single hair, and you are his forever.”

― Gotthold Ephraim Lessing

“I used to have really long hair. It was a big fro with mad curls.”

― Grace Gealey

“I do miss my hair because I used to do so much stuff with it, but I do like different levels of short. I had a super short pixie before, and I loved it.”

― Grace Gealey

“You had to wear a hat to go to church. We weren’t allowed to straighten our hair. We couldn’t wear jewellery, nail polish, open backed shoes, skirts above the knee… trousers were forbidden because male apparel on a female was not godly.”

― Grace Jones

“It was very painful combing my hair. My grand-uncle was a Pentecostal bishop, and he was very strict: our hair couldn’t be permed or straightened. So I just cut it all off.”

― Grace Jones

“When I was younger, I was very princessy. I always wanted to be blond-haired and blue-eyed. This was before Mulan, so I was very upset about all the Cinderellas. I always tried to imagine that maybe Snow White was Chinese since she had black hair.”

― Grace Lin

“I see musicians like Bonnie Raitt and Emmylou Harris as more than just musical icons: they are planets, with a gravitational pull – from how they flip their hair just-so when they bow, right down to their hearty backstage banter. It takes decades to learn the innuendos of being gracious and genuine all at once.”

― Grace Potter

“The misconception about the record company is that they were the ones who got me wearing short skirts, or got me to do my hair blond, or got me to dance around onstage and start doing different things with my clothes. No, that was actually all me.”

― Grace Potter

“I’m losing my hair. I’m overweight. It’s not like that’s at the top of the list when women go looking for a man. It’s like – complete collapse, every year.”

― Graydon Carter

“I usually tell people upfront what to expect, and that I really want their feedback and their ideas, and if they think I’ve got a hair out of place or food stuck in my teeth, gosh, I want to know that.”

― Greg Brenneman

“I have alopecia. My hair fell out when I was in college and I didn’t take it so well.”

― Greg Mottola

“I have always been an admirer of Feli, Feli Lopez. He’s just – I mean, every time – he’s, like, fit and good and his long hair and the beard.”

― Grigor Dimitrov

“At home I wear my own clothes, no makeup and don’t do anything exciting with my hair. I get to borrow pretty dresses for the red carpet and have experts do my hair and makeup.”

― Gugu Mbatha-Raw

“Because of my job, my hair gets played with a lot on set, so I try to give it little bit of breathing space when I’m not working.”

― Gugu Mbatha-Raw

“When I’m not working, I’m really, really low key. I don’t wear makeup unless I have to; I don’t get my hair done unless I really need to.”

― Gugu Mbatha-Raw

“I love my work with a frenetic and perverse love, as an ascetic loves the hair shirt which scratches his belly.”

― Gustave Flaubert

“If I probably didn’t have tattoos, or if I probably didn’t bleach my hair, or if I probably didn’t wear blue jeans and a T-shirt to fancy things, if I didn’t do things that make me look like someone who’s whacked out of their mind, it’d probably be different. But then again, that’s how I wanna dress.”

― Guy Fieri

“I’ve been using the same hair wax for as long as I can remember. I’m not a gel guy, I’m not a perfume guy, not really into any of that.”

― Guy Fieri

“There’s been quite a few conversations between me and my wife; she’d like to see my hair brown again. So who knows what will happen.”

― Guy Fieri

“I don’t know, so much of women’s femininity is tied up with their hair.”

― Gwendoline Christie

“My parents separated when I was young, and as a result, my father had to learn how to braid our hair on the nights my sisters and I would stay with him. We would arrive to school the next morning with these incredibly endearing lopsided braids he had fashioned. This may have expedited the process of my learning how to braid my own hair.”

― Hailey Gates

“A sudden intimacy occurs when someone does your hair.”

― Hailey Gates

“Having long hair has allowed me to enter orthodox or religiously conservative situations with slightly more ease.”

― Hailey Gates

“I’m lucky because I had blonde hair for a while for this TV show I was doing – they had me dye my hair blonde – and every audition I was going out for was bleach blonde. The mean girl, the pretty girlfriend, and the dumb cheerleader.”

― Haley Lu Richardson

“There is a misconception that young Muslim women are oppressed. That simply isn’t the case. I choose to dress modestly and choose to cover my hair with a hijab; not all Muslim women make that choice, and that’s okay. We are all different!”

― Halima Aden

“I think I am at my best when my hair is short. It’s easier to take care of and more of who I am. Women are conditioned to think we need long hair.”

― Halle Berry

“When you’re a teenage girl, a lot of being pretty has to do with your hair.”

― Halsey

“The forties are the time when you begin to take notice of certain aches and pains. Your body and brain behave in inexplicable ways: Less hair on your head, more in your ears and nostrils. More memories in the bank, less synaptic firepower with which to access them. Gravity has started to show its inexorable pull.”

― Hampton Sides

“I’m a vegetarian and change my hair color as much as I can.”

― Hannah Marks

“Men can’t do much to change; we have to wear suits, although I never wear a tie, apart from in Asia sometimes. So I decided to grow my hair.”

― Hans Vestberg

“Sometimes it feels like people can’t wrap their head around the notion that an ‘androgynous’ trans woman with shorter hair could be beautiful.”

― Hedy Lamarr

“I’d rather wear jewels in my hair than anywhere else. The face should have the advantage of this brilliance.”

― Hedy Lamarr

“Dirt makes a man look masculine. Let your hair blow in the wind, and all that. It’s OK. All you have to do is look neat when you have to look neat.”

― Hedy Lamarr

“My motto is to go wild on the accessories – the belts, the hair clips, the jewelery.”

― Heidi Klum

“If you want to change your hair colour or your nail colour or things like that its fine, but you have to realize the dangers and repercussions of surgery.”

― Heidi Montag

“It’s rather fun writing a female spy, because she has so much more kit. Bond never carried a hair dryer or a makeup bag. And he certainly didn’t wear an uplift bra.”

― Helen Fielding

“Hair that gleams can send a clear sign that you’re young and in your prime, whatever your actual age.”

― Helen Fisher

“Hair that looks like it’s been naturally sun-bleached makes you seem youthful, like you spend a lot of time outdoors. And that appeals to most people.”

― Helen Fisher

“Actors work and slave and it is the color of your hair that can determine your fate in the end.”

― Helen Hayes

“I love dressing up. But I’m very low-maintenance; the week before an event, I’ll choose something as quickly as possible and that’s that. If I can do my own hair and make-up, even better. I like it to be fun.”

― Helen McCrory

“I was terribly gawky, too goofy to become a high-kicking cheerleader, with stringy brown hair and bad posture. Definitely nobody noticeable!”

― Helen Slater

“The whole series is black-and-white, so when I went to shoot one of the women I only had black-and-white film with me. She had reddish hair and was a very pretty girl, a nice girl.”

― Helmut Newton

“When you’re in a seat getting your hair done, there’s this instant trust.”

― Henry Golding

“This is my own little rock theory: In my mind, Nirvana slayed the hair bands. They shot the top off the poodles.”

― Henry Rollins

“Miles Davis would have this lineup of all these amazing musicians and one day would just say, ‘We’re done.’ After tons of great records and tickets sold, he said, ‘Now I’m going to grow my hair out and play my horn through a wah-wah pedal.’ Rather than play it safe, he went on.”

― Henry Rollins

“Many years ago, I concluded that a few hair shirts were part of the mental wardrobe of every man. The president differs from other men in that he has a more extensive wardrobe.”

― Herbert Hoover

“One who hates is a man holding a magnifying-glass, and when he hates someone, he knows precisely that person’s surface, from the soles of his feet all the way up to each hair on the hated head.”

“I’m one of those people who thinks that changing one’s hair is the only part of the body that you can change at will.”

― Hillary Clinton

“I wish I were taller and thinner but the hair you can do something about.”

― Hillary Clinton

“If I had to name one thing that probably causes more conflict within the band, it’s probably the fact that I’m the girl, and it takes much longer with hair and makeup and wardrobe. But they’ve gotten used to it. It’s one of those things I think they realize that when they say she’ll be ready in 10 minutes, it normally means 15 or 20.”

― Hillary Scott

“I notice that most of the men who tease me about my hair, don’t have any.”

― Holland Taylor

“I enjoy flitting around between hair colours. I find it fascinating when people think I’m naturally blonde, as I’ve only been blonde for about two seconds. People pay more attention to you as a blonde; it’s also easier for people to assume you’re a ditsy young actress. Of course, I am a ditsy young actress – well, maybe not ditsy.”

― Holliday Grainger

“I was very short. Everybody else was two years older in my class, and I had curly hair and was teacher’s pet.”

― Howard Stringer

“I just hate getting my hair cut.”

― Hozier

“I think good-looking people seldom make good television. And American television studios almost concede before they start: ‘Well, it won’t be good, but at least it’ll be good-looking. We’ll have nice-looking girls in tight shirts with F.B.I. badges and fit-looking guys with lots of hair gel vaulting over things.’”

― Hugh Laurie

“The only time I’m not Hulk Hogan is when I’m behind closed doors because as soon as I walk out the front door, and somebody says hello to me, I can’t just say ‘hello’ like Terry. When they see me, they see the blond hair, the mustache, and the bald head, they instantly think Hulk Hogan.”

― Hulk Hogan

“All this is expected from girls only – wear makeup and look beautiful. My guy friends don’t always have to do their hair and makeup.”

― Huma Qureshi

“I absolutely hate waxing and any kinda manscaping, although I love it when I’m cutting a man’s hair, and his eyebrows are really insane, and I get to trim them.”

― Hunx

“I wear a lot of wigs and stuff on stage to make my hair look bigger.”

― Hunx

“As far as clothes are concerned, for the day, wear something chic: a good pair of jeans, crop, and open hair with a bright lip colour. For an evening, a nice pair of high-waisted trousers and a nice blouse looks great.”

― Ileana D’Cruz

“My hair is just like five pieces of very soft straw that needs managing. I touch my hair a lot, and that makes it crazy.”

― Imelda May

“My wife is a beautician, but the first time I did something to my hair was not through her.”

― Imran Tahir

“Curly hair is not just a hairstyle: it’s kind of a lifestyle. There is something really free and careless about it and loose and kind of naughty. I love it.”

― Inbar Lavi

“I think finding a character starts in hair and makeup, fitting room. That’s where it all kind of falls into place.”

― Inbar Lavi

“I have a massive head of hair: it’s a Jew ‘fro. It’s living and kicking.”

― Inbar Lavi

“Every trend in my high school was terrible! I used to wear my hair in a tight bun and let two long pieces hang in the front. I’d also wear really dark eyeliner and bright pink eyeshadow. For some reason, my friends and I thought it was really fashionable to wear a short tie with our uniforms.”

― India de Beaufort

“When I talk football with my friends, I don’t talk about Tom Brady’s hair. I talk about how he handles the blitz, or how he runs his offense. I talk as a fan. I don’t want pink jerseys, and I don’t want dumbed-down content. I want to be treated as a real fan – because I am proud to be one.”

― Indra Nooyi

“Old age adds to the respect due to virtue, but it takes nothing from the contempt inspired by vice; it whitens only the hair.”

― Ira Gershwin

“When it comes to lingerie, there are no rules. I feel the sexiest when I’m myself, no hair, no makeup.”

― Irina Shayk

“I always had a short bob with bangs, and I hated it. My mum would always say, ‘A short hair cut is always the way to go for you.’ I had it for fourteen years!”

― Irina Shayk

“When I was a teenager, I experimented a lot with hair colour, and the result was just awful.”

― Irina Shayk

“Hanson will be associated with ‘MMMBop’ and long blonde hair in the same way the Beatles are associated with mop tops and suits.”

― Isaac Hanson

“I think Eggs looks great, with his mucky face with dirt all over it and greasy hair. He’s the ideal boy Boxtroll, really. It’s quite difficult to capture a boy who’s grown up as a Boxtroll. So, he looks good.”

― Isaac Hempstead Wright

“I’ll put mousse in my hair if I’m going out and want to look pretty, to build the volume. Otherwise, I just do nothing. I let it breathe.”

― Isabeli Fontana

“The Japanese look most diminutive in European dress. Each garment is a misfit and exaggerates the miserable physique and the national defects of concave chests and bow legs. The lack of ‘complexion’ and of hair upon the face makes it nearly impossible to judge of the ages of men.”

― Isabella Bird

“I was born with a love of animals, the same way I was born with brown hair. When I was a little girl in Rome, I always had pets, which I adored.”

― Isabella Rossellini

“What is good hair? It can be anything to anyone. Good hair is healthy hair, whatever you perceive that to be.”

― Isaiah Mustafa

“You don’t always need to be this flawless female with amazing skin and done hair. Perfect doesn’t exist.”

― Iskra Lawrence

“Who I was was not acceptable to black L.A. youth: the way I spoke and my sense of humor. Everybody else had relaxers and pressed hair. I wore my hair in an Afro puff. Nappy. The way I dressed. It was all about name brands at the time in L.A. I had no idea. All those things, I failed miserably at.”

― Issa Rae

“Gorgeous hair is the best revenge.”

― Ivana Trump

“I don’t own a blow-dryer – I don’t know how to use it. Most mornings, I walk to work with my hair wet.”

― Ivanka Trump

― J. J. Watt

“If someone told me, ‘I’m gonna give you $600 million, but I’m going to take your hair’? Take my hair!”

― J. R. Smith

“I don’t like men who blow-dry their hair. If you are a man and you blow-dry your hair, then I don’t like you and that’s all there is to it.”

― Jack Dee

“Yes, exercise is the catalyst. That’s what makes everything happen: your digestion, your elimination, your sex life, your skin, hair, everything about you depends on circulation. And how do you increase circulation?”

― Jack LaLanne

“They kept me in short pants as long as they could, until they were shaving the hair on my legs because it was beginning to photograph.”

― Jackie Cooper

“You must understand the texture of your hair before you choose a style.”

― Jaclyn Smith

“Mum and I have always been close. Her adoptive parents died when she was 18, and she doesn’t have any other kids, so I’m her only family. She lives life to the full, and I envy her vitality. She has pink hair and is a younger spirit than me.”

― Jacob Anderson

“I don’t think I care about the hair as much as people think I do. It’s just kind of there. It’s not really a big deal to me. It actually drives me nuts. It’s always in my face if I don’t have a hat on. I might have to get rid of it.”

― Jacob deGrom

“I really like using the softening cream. It helps me go out there with confidence to do what I need to do, and at the same time, it’s very functional and helps keep the hair out of my mouth so I can focus on pitching.”

― Jacob deGrom

“Take care of yourself by eating right, sleeping right, and exercising regularly! These are the only rules I swear by. If you follow this religiously and use the right products, your skin and hair will thank you.”

― Jacquelyn Jablonski

― Jaime King

“I like Oribe mousse; however I don’t use too many hair products. I’m a huge fan of bandanas and hats.”

― Jaimie Alexander

“The back hair doesn’t get all that long; it’s just really thick. So if I don’t keep it shaved once a week, it’s a problem, and it could take two hours. And my wife’s got to do it, so it’s her problem. I told her we just need to buy a laser hair removal machine because it would take three or four years and probably 50 sessions to get rid of it.”

― Jake Arrieta

“Everybody has a temper, but mine was set on a hair trigger.”

― Jake LaMotta

“One hair of a woman can draw more than a hundred pair of oxen.”

― James Howell

“What I remember most about junior homecoming was my date getting sick afterwards. That kinda sucked. Then, senior year, someone got gum in her hair when we were dancing. She had to get one of the chaperones to take her to the office and cut up her hair. I felt really bad for her, but it worked out fine.”

― James Lafferty

“When I moved to L.A., I had somebody go, ‘Alright. Fix your hair. Wear this.’ Like, changed my look a little bit. I kind of came into myself a little better when I moved to L.A.”

― James Marsden

“So, I’m going to go over on Angel. Joss is just going to find a way to keep me bleaching my hair, which is fine.”

― James Marsters

“I rarely use product in my hair, and when I do I have no idea which ones, nor does it matter all that much to me. And I can’t remember the last time I even used a comb, much less carried one around.”

― James Maslow

“I always have a beard between jobs. I just let it grow until they pay me to shave it. People are quite surprised it’s ginger. Sometimes they ask me if dye my hair and I always say ‘Wow, no!’ I’m ‘trans-ginger.’”

― James McAvoy

“I have a friend who wanted to practise on my head because they wanted to be a stylist. So I offered what hair I had left to turn white.”

― James Michael Tyler

“Several years ago, I began losing my hair, and like a lot of men, it was a major concern to me, in fact it was practically an obsession. But, also I’m an actor, so I’m in the public eye a lot and I really felt that my hair loss could affect my career prospects.”

― James Nesbitt

“I’m a ‘frotteur,’ someone who likes to rub words in his hand, to turn them around and feel them, to wonder if that really is the best word possible. Does that word in this sentence have any electric potential? Does it do anything? Too much electricity will make your reader’s hair frizzy. There’s a question of pacing.”

― James Salter

“When I’m not working, I don’t get my hair cut. I don’t know what the next character looks like.”

― James Spader

“I’ve only dyed my hair blond once, after ‘Varsity Blues.’”

― James Van Der Beek

“Mitt Romney – he had a Rock Hudson thing going, shoeblack hair and a well-hung resume, but even for a shameless, position-shifting phony he seemed a trifle insincere.”

― James Wolcott

“When I was growing up in Chicago, my family and I used to go to a local chain, Hackney’s, for burgers and their French fried onion loaf. I probably haven’t been to one in 25 years, and yet, I once saw Donald Trump from behind in an office building and the first thing that flashed in my mind was his hair looked like that onion loaf.”

― Jami Attenberg

“My worst hair experience was when I was trying to relax my hair and my grandmother did it. It went all straight and I looked like a black Bee Gee.”

― Jamie Foxx

“I was approached to do ‘MythBusters’ in 2002. I didn’t think it would go anywhere, but I guess anything can happen if you wear a funny hat and have lots of facial hair.”

― Jamie Hyneman

“My hair was falling out so I got in the habit of wearing a hat. And I didn’t like baseball caps so I got a beret.”

― Jamie Hyneman

“I have very short hair. It’s the only cute haircut I think I’ve ever had.”

― Jamie Lee Curtis

“With short hair you have to get a haircut every two or three weeks. And if you’re coloring your hair, you have to color it that often. Every time I did it, I felt fraudulent.”

― Jamie Lee Curtis

“I’m still the way I’ve always been. Lots of hair and eyes, a bit Raquel Welch-ish.”

― Jane Badler

“I feel most comfortable in an old pair of jeans, Converse, and a man’s jersey. My best friend cuts my hair with kitchen scissors.”

― Jane Birkin

“I colour my hair mousy brown and I wear makeup only on stage. I use Laura Mercier – something called Biscuit, I think. I run one tiny sponge over my face and cover the red blotches. If I’ve got some rouge, I’ll bung it on my mouth and cheeks.”

― Jane Birkin

“My hair is frizzy, so I’m constantly smoothing it down.”

― Jane Fallon

“I had a really tragic cut at the beginning of Season 2 of ‘Ally McBeal.’ Someone convinced me that it would be good to layer my hair. I basically looked like Ronald McDonald.”

― Jane Krakowski

“I’m not a natural redhead, but I enjoy having red hair.”

― Jane Levy

“People say women shouldn’t have long hair over a certain age, but I’ve never done what everyone says.”

― Jane Seymour

“One of my mantras is, ‘Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable.’ I keep that with me in my back pocket. Shoot, I keep it in my front pocket! I keep it in my hair.”

― Janelle Monae

“When I got into the music industry, I wasn’t focused on being the most famous artist or even getting a major record deal. It was just to make music on my own terms or create my own image, do my own hair, do my own makeup.”

― Janelle Monae

“By age seven, I used to comb my hair for performances, just pull my hair up into a bun. Granted, it wasn’t a very intricate hairstyle. Still, to be that responsible and disciplined at age seven is unusual.”

― Janet Jackson

“I always get bored with my hair. That’s why I would always change it throughout my career.”

― Janet Jackson

“When I was a toddler, my father cut hair in the townhouse we had shared together in Long Beach, California, where Dad was stationed with the U.S. Navy. The buzz of clippers consistently hummed as he gave fades to his coworkers, my uncles, and my brother, but his clippers were never oiled and plugged in for my head.”

― Janet Mock

“For many, hair is just hair. It’s something you grow, shape, adapt, adorn, and cut. But my hair has always been so much more than what’s on my head. It’s a marker of how free I felt in my body, how comfortable I was with myself, and how much agency I had to control my body and express myself with it.”

― Janet Mock

“Toughening up, performing masculinity, pretending to enjoy things I didn’t enjoy all enabled me to dodge the gender policing of the adults around me. But the way I really was – the swished hips, the Double-Dutching, the hair flips – seemed to always prevail and attract Dad’s disdain.”

― Janet Mock

“I was in the seventh grade when I first began to identify as trans and express my gender identity as a girl. My social transition began with growing my hair and wearing clothes and makeup that made me feel like Destiny’s Fourth Child.”

― Janet Mock

“I love magazines. I always read ‘Time,’ ‘Newsweek’ and ‘The Economist.’ When I get my hair cut, French ‘Vogue,’ French ‘Elle,’ ‘Paris Match’ – I read them all in 10 minutes.”

― Janine di Giovanni

“Men were created to have facial hair like women were created to be smooth-faced. Well, not all women. I’ve seen pockets where that’s not the case, and that’s not good.”

― Jase Robertson

“I hate my hair! When clean, it is fuzzy, and when not clean, it is lank.”

― Jasmine Guinness

“I don’t have a specific favorite product, but I deep condition my hair regularly. When I can, I’ll avoid heat styling and wear my hair in a bun.”

― Jasmine Tookes

“When I was 16, it was 1988, and my style was a mess. Fur-lined brown suede jacket, paisley shirt, chinos, and Doc Martens. My hair was blow dried into a large quiff. That might sound vaguely cool. It wasn’t.”

― Jason O’Mara

“When you sit there, and you sing the chorus – and then you look at each other, and everybody has the hair standing up on their arms – then everybody knows you’ve stumbled onto something.”

― Jay DeMarcus

“I was going to buy a book on hair loss, but the pages kept falling out.”

― Jay London

“I recorded my hair this morning, tonight I’m watching the highlights.”

― Jay London

“I was shooting a mini-series for Sundance/BBC, called ‘Top of the Lake,’ that was shot by Jane Campion, who’s a beautiful native New Zealander and famous film director. The role I was playing was very intense, and they shaved half my hair off. So, I looked like this post-apocalyptic character.”

― Jay Ryan

“I definitely know that I’m quirky. I know that I’m different. Red hair definitely made me different growing up.”

“I love experimenting with different hair styles and going clothes shopping.”

― Jazz Jennings

“I had an idea for a story about a young woman who was living with people who were different, not just superficially different – such as hair colour, or eye colour, or skin colour – but different in some significant way.”

― Jean M. Auel

“Because the heart beats under a covering of hair, of fur, feathers, or wings, it is, for that reason, to be of no account?”

“L.A. girls always have perfect hair and makeup in every situation.”

― Jeanne Damas

“I had the big shoulders; I had the big hair. I loved the ’80s. It was all about power women.”

“The Death of Advertising? I think that’s in the book of Revelation. It’s the day when people everywhere become satisfied with their weight, their hair, their skin, their wardrobe, and their aroma.”

― Jef I. Richards

“But there’s so much kludge, so much terrible stuff, we are at the 1908 Hurley washing machine stage with the Internet. That’s where we are. We don’t get our hair caught in it, but that’s the level of primitiveness of where we are. We’re in 1908.”

― Jeff Bezos

“I’m lying in my bed, blanket is warm, this body will never keep me safe from harm. I still feel your hair, black ribbons of coal. Touch my skin to keep me whole. If only you’d come back to me. To feel you at my side, wouldn’t need no Mojo Pin to keep me satisfied.”

― Jeff Buckley

“I really hate my hair when it’s not braided because it’s so big when it dries. When it’s wet, it looks cool, but when it dries, it gets all in my mouth during a match, and I hate it.”

― Jeff Hardy

“Because of my grey hair and glasses, people think I’m Phil Donahue.”

― Jeff MacNelly

“I know it sounds so dumb, but when you’ve had pink hair for 12 years and take that away, you’re looked at in a different light.”

― Jeffree Star

“I’ve been rocking these brows and crazy hair since I can remember.”

― Jeffree Star

“The less concerned with aesthetics and usability these friends and family members are, the more easily they navigate sites and applications I can’t make head nor hair of. Like the ex-girlfriend who mastered Ebay.”

― Jenifer Lewis

“I’ve been burn when it comes to my hair that it ain’t no joke.”

― Jenifer Lewis

“I’m never going to look like a Nordic model, so I play with what I’ve got. Instead of going gray, I dye my hair bright colors; I have bad vision, so I wear sparkly glasses. I embrace that I look like a crazy lady.”

― Jenji Kohan

“I’m sprouting more than one wonderful grey hair.”

― Jennifer Aniston

“My hair has never been my greatest feature, so that was funny enough unto itself that my hair became so focused on.”

― Jennifer Aniston

“I danced six hours a day. My cross to bear is that my children have no interest in ballet. I think they could smell how much I wanted to put their hair in a bun.”

― Jennifer Garner

“The wholesome is definitely intentional and drilled into me. I mean, we weren’t allowed to pierce our ears growing up. We didn’t wear makeup. We couldn’t have layers in our hair, perms, or color, or manicures. My dad didn’t think it was ladylike. My dad just felt like his daughters should be wholesome.”

― Jennifer Garner

“I like to maintain a certain sense of fantasy. At home, do I have the full hair and makeup? No. But I might have the nice dress on.”

― Jennifer Lopez

“Most of the time I’m in khakis and a white T-shirt. I’m a total Gap girl. Super casual, hair in a pony tail and no makeup.”

― Jennifer Love Hewitt

“I practically lived in the woods when I was a kid, avoiding grown-ups and my dysfunctional family, pretending I was half-wolf, a feral child who napped in nests made out of ferns, ate wild blueberries, and wove sticks and feathers into her hair.”

― Jennifer McMahon

“When my hair was dark for ‘House,’ that was the hardest to maintain because it was like every three weeks my light roots would start coming in. And you can’t really just dye your hair one color brown because then it looks like a helmet on television, so then I had to have four colors of brown woven into my hair every three weeks.”

― Jennifer Morrison

“I get my highlights touched up with Susan Henry at Shades in Beverly Hills. She developed hypo-allergenic hair color products with no ammonia because she’s allergic to others; she’s an incredible colorist. She does balayage instead of the foils, and I’ll go and she will do my entire head of highlights in an hour.”

― Jennifer Morrison

“Unite has a great dry shampoo called 7Seconds. After a hot yoga class, when I’m super sweaty I spray this on and my hair comes back to life. Miraculous!”

― Jennifer Morrison

“I’m a natural blonde, but my hair has been almost every color you can imagine. As an actor, I like to get into my character as much as I can, and often that starts with the color of my hair.”

― Jennifer Morrison

“It’s easiest for me to be blonde because I’m naturally blonde; my roots are light enough that all I have to do is just highlight my hair every few months.”

― Jennifer Morrison

“Music is so much more than what you wear and your hair.”

“I’m not cut out to be a famous person; I can’t do my hair and makeup well enough.”

― Jennifer Weiner

“I’ve just got crap hair. Although I inherited a lot of stuff from my dad, including giant knees, I didn’t get his good, thick hair. I got my mother’s thin, wispy, non-event hair instead.”

― Jenny Eclair

“Anyone who has dead straight hair wants curls.”

― Jenny Eclair

“My hair looks so good out in the desert, it’s unbelievable. It’s, like, perfectly not frizzy.”

― Jenny Lewis

“It can be hard for the cute girl. I was blond, cute, broke. I was beat up. I was thrown inside lockers. I was burned with cigarettes. My hair was lit on fire.”

― Jenny McCarthy

“Accessories are the perfect way to add something special. A hair comb or a beaded clutch can be a lovely detail to finish your bridal look.”

― Jenny Packham

“Getting my hair cut is just a very special moment for me. I don’t know exactly why, but it’s such an intimate, almost religious experience. I’m very careful with who gets to cut my hair.”

― Jens Lekman

“And when power ballads come back, we’ll get big hair again.”

― Jerry Cantrell

“I am wondering when – if – I have to cut my hair. I think it looks terrible if you have really long hair and it’s gone gray. So I am experimenting with wearing it up. Up, with pearls. I think that’s quite a good look.”

― Jerry Hall

“My hair can get quite dry, so I condition it in olive oil once a week.”

― Jerry Hall

“I was my thinnest when doing 35 fashion shows a week in different countries because I didn’t have time to eat. I’ve never bought the idea that models in fashion magazines cause readers to have anorexia and bulimia. And you can’t be a model if you’ve got those conditions anyway, because you’ll get acne and hair all over your body.”

― Jerry Hall

“My long, blonde hair has been my trademark ever since I started modelling in the Seventies, when I was scouted sunbathing in St Tropez.”

― Jerry Hall

“I have so much hair, so straightening takes a long time. I mean, if I look at photos of myself with straight hair, it’s hilarious. I look like a different person.”

― Jess Glynne

“My Barbies were usually naked. Once, I took their heads off, cut their hair, drew on their short, spiky hair with some markers, then stuck the heads on Christmas lights. Every year, we’d string our tree with those Barbie heads. It looked demonic. My parents were so cool – they saw it as a form of self-expression.”

― Jessica Biel

“On the red carpet, I’m playing a character. As soon as I get off that thing, I think, ‘Oof, wipe that gloss off.’ I’m wiping and wiping and pulling my hair out and trying to change my outfit. I’m immediately trying to get comfortable. It’s really a part I play.”

― Jessica Biel

“We filmed ‘Labyrinth’ in South Africa for two and a half months and it was just the most unbelievable experience. Lots of sword fighting, mud in hair and lots of weeping! It’s very different from ‘Downton’ because I was going to work and having mud put in my hair – it’s the other extreme of the look!”

― Jessica Brown Findlay

“I do know that people treat me different with blonde hair than they do with red hair.”

― Jessica Chastain

“I’m either thought of as ethereal or fiery. And maybe that’s the interesting thing about red hair: there’s that fiery Renaissance connotation and the ethereal.”

― Jessica Chastain

“I love getting dressed up for red carpet events and having my hair and makeup done professionally – that definitely helps with nerves of going down the red carpet.”

― Jessica Ennis-Hill

“In high school and college, I always, always straightened my hair. Don’t ask why; I was just so into my image. Post-college, I started wearing my hair natural.”

― Jessica McDonald

“I like throwing on shorts and a plaid button up with messy hair and last night’s eyeliner and sunglasses and wandering the town. And if there’s a guy I dig with his arm around me, too, that’s pretty nice.”

― Jessica Parker Kennedy

“I used to have hair so long, my nickname was Pocahontas.”

― Jessica Sanchez

“I’m such a blonde. It just doesn’t make sense for me to have dark hair.”

― Jessica Simpson

“’Downton Abbey’. I love all things olden-days, and I’m very interested in somebody brushing my hair out at the end of the night.”

― Jessica St. Clair

“If you watch ‘90210,’ you see my hair changing every episode – I’ve chopped it off, and I’ve kept it long. I’ve done it all to my hair on that show.”

― Jessica Stroup

“I do a lot of dry shampoo. My hair just works better when it’s not as clean!”

― Jessica Szohr

“My hair is my protection.”

― Jessica White

“I have never been a ‘hair person.’ Growing up, my mom and my sister, who loved to get their hair done, would always give me a hard time about not getting mine done.”

― Jessica Williams

“My natural hair is who I am. I have lots of braids, and I have lots of twists, but it’s all very low maintenance. I feel like I can get up and go and get out of the house. I just don’t have it in me to get my hair done all the time.”

― Jessica Williams

“I’m not afraid to have no make-up on and no hair. I just want to be stripped back.”

― Jessie J

“I used to live in a gap jumper, tracksuit bottoms and a fake flower in my hair. Shocking.”

― Jessie J

“I think if I wasn’t a singer I’d probably do make-up and beauty and hair and something creative like styling; I really enjoy it.”

― Jessie J

“I started to look like a cartoon character with the fringe and the catsuits. Yes, I want to change and mix it up. I want to change my hair, change my style. I want to be allowed to grow.”

― Jessie J

“I’m going to be that little old lady that’s just, like, walking around and just, like, full of energy, probably with bright red hair or something crazy.”

― Jessie James Decker

“My mom did this in the ’90s. She’d put a bandana in her hair, cutoff jeans and throw flannel, and I just remember looking at her thinking she was the most beautiful supermodel ever.”

― Jessie James Decker

“I always feel guilty when I want to go get my nails done or hair done because it takes time away, but I know moms need that alone time, too.”

― Jessie James Decker

“I look back at pictures of myself in high school, and I was a cheerleader, and I had hair just as thick if not thicker and long – down to my hips.”

― Jessie James Decker

“You can beat me up, but don’t touch my hair, I will kill you!”

― Jet Li

“On my own I generally have very messy hair, wear jeans and sneakers.”

― Jewel

“Even printed, on pages that are bound, sentences remain unsettled organisms. Years later, I can always reach out to smooth a stray hair. And yet, at a certain point, I must walk away, trusting them to do their work. I am left looking over my shoulder, wondering if I might have structured one more effectively.”

― Jhumpa Lahiri

“Just because I’ve got blonde hair and haven’t been to Bosnia doesn’t mean I’m a bimbo. I am still a serious journalist.”

― Jill Dando

“For me, hair is an accoutrement. Hair is jewelry. It’s an accessory.”

― Jill Scott

“It’s definitely a little bit ironic being known for my hair because, as a little girl, I had no idea what I was doing with it. I was insecure about it. I didn’t have as many references to curly girls, and I wanted to just fit in with all my other friends.”

― Jillian Hervey

“When I was a young girl, I wasn’t always trying to have curly hair.”

― Jillian Hervey

“I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a little sweat. I’m always moving, so it’s normal for me, and it actually makes my curly hair better because it gives it a bit more texture and volume.”

― Jillian Hervey

“As a young girl, I definitely struggled with knowing what to do with my hair. I was just in a neighborhood that had mostly white people, and the hair norm was long and sleek and straight. My hair naturally was curly, and I didn’t have that many references.”

― Jillian Hervey

“I kept extensions in until I finished high school. Although, once I got to college, that’s when it all started to shift. I think it was just growing up and moving to New York, where I saw so many different people, vibes, and looks, and everyone really owned it. That led me to feel more free, take more risks, and go back into my natural hair.”

― Jillian Hervey

“When I was younger, I thought that straight hair was, like, the only thing. So I was trying to be like Naomi Campbell or Tyra Banks. I didn’t know that people would add hair for more length. I’m like, ‘Oh all these people just have natural hair like this.’ I obviously grew up and figured out that everyone does something to their hair.”

― Jillian Hervey

“Around shows, when we’re doing really strenuous stuff on my hair – styling with heat, adding things, braiding things, pinning things – I like to give my scalp and my hair a rest. We usually have a show once a week or so, so I try to deep condition with Pantene Daily 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner once a week.”

― Jillian Hervey

“When you change something like your hair, the whole world changes also.”

― Jillian Hervey

“For dance recitals, my mom would do my makeup all extravagant because obviously I was really little and where else would I be wearing makeup? We would always be in her bathroom before the dance recital, and she’d do our hair and makeup.”

― Jillian Hervey

“I think anytime with your mom, whether she’s famous or not, you’re watching what she’s doing when you’re growing up. She also taught me the basics: Make sure you use a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, and then use a detangler to comb through your hair. And don’t overdo the heat styling.”

― Jillian Hervey

“Once I learned that some hydrating oil or cream was good for my hair, I thought I should use a lot. So I poured practically a bottle on my head once and learned real fast that more isn’t always better. I was so greasy, and it ruined my texture!”

― Jillian Hervey

“I’ve always idolized Diana Ross’s hair. Why not have fun, big curls? You see the same sleek waves everywhere.”

― Jillian Hervey

“I love a lot of the ’70s singers: Pam Grier from the ‘Foxy Brown’ movie, Diana Ross, Tina Turner. They’ve always been able to embrace their hair, and they’ve never been afraid to take risks and go all out and make it thick and fun and a statement at the same time.”

― Jillian Hervey

“Coconut oil is a must for everything. It is fresh from the earth, so it naturally works to moisturize my scalp, skin, hair and even helps to remove eye makeup. It also smells delicious. You can buy it at a beauty store or the grocery store.”

― Jillian Hervey

“I grew up just outside New York City in a very white town. In seventh grade, I got called Macy Gray. It really affected me, so I got a weave and wore my hair straight.”

― Jillian Hervey

“The western view of Christ is usually of a stainless being with fair hair who appears to have come from Oslo.”

― Jim Crace

“For me, Mr. T and Donald Trump are the same sort of phenomenon – they’re guys with catchphrases and wacky hair.”

― Jim Jefferies

“To be with the others, you have to have your hair short and wear ties. So we’re trying to make a third world happen, you know what I mean?”

― Jimi Hendrix

“I believe there is complete equality between men and women. And I believe those passages in the New Testament, not by Jesus, but by Paul, that say women should not adorn themselves, they should always wear hats or color their hair in church – things like that – I think they are signs of the times and should not apply to modern-day life.”

― Jimmy Carter

“I always had the facial hair so I looked older than I was.”

― Jimmy Smith

“In the end, punk inevitably burned itself out and acted as a bridge across which the New Romantics could sashay in their chiffon and glossy hair.”

― Jo Brand

“I turned my hair dark and have received much better parts ever since.”

― Joan Bennett

“I’ve made no secret of the fact that I often wear wigs and have in fact launched my own ‘Dynasty’ range, named after various characters. I find this saves a ton of time – as well as my own hair.”

― Joan Collins

“We used to wash our hair in buckets and survive on toasted sandwiches, chocolates and soup.”

― Joan Greenwood

“When I first met Antonin Scalia, I was a small child with one brown ponytail atop my head. Which is odd, because I was a full-grown woman, and my hair was short and blond. Still, sitting on the black leather sofa in his chambers, I remember shrinking.”

― Joan Larsen

“I always had crazy, curly hair up in a bun, messy, running up and down, sweaty.”

― Joan Smalls

“I’ve always had a struggle trying to get a hair campaign. It’s mind-boggling.”

― Joan Smalls

“People think we just wake up looking perfect, but it’s all about the hair and the make-up, staying in shape, and eating healthily.”

― Joanna Krupa

“I can’t see any difference in having your hair dyed, your teeth fixed, your nose done, or your face smoothed out or lifted.”

― Joanna Lumley

“I’ve always used my hair for whatever it is needed for. I had it an inch long and jet black for a Pinter play I did. Changes you completely.”

― Joanna Lumley

“When I do my concerts, you have got to think about everything else; so you have got to think about your gown, your hair, your body, and how you present yourself on stage.”

― Jodi Benson

“The thing that I enjoy about animation is the fact that it is unbridled, and there are no boundaries; when you are in the room, you don’t have to focus on your clothing, make-up, hair, your choreography or your blocking; you really do have total freedom.”

― Jodi Benson

“When I was a freshman, I was 5 feet 9 and totally skinny as a pole. Knock-knees and bad hair. Then, over that summer, I grew up a little bit. Not that I was some super beauty, but at least I didn’t look like I was 10 anymore and had a little self-confidence.”

― Jodi Lyn O’Keefe

“There’s something refreshing about going into filming and not brushing your hair, letting your toenails chip, drawing darker circles under your eyes.”

― Jodie Comer

“If you don’t physically age gracefully, it’s a bit sad. I think Steven Tyler can get away anything, because he still looks like he did in ’73. Especially from row Z backwards in an arena. As long as the Stones keep their hair and don’t get fat they’ll get away with the wrinkles.”

― Joe Elliott

“It’s not like I really do anything for my hair; I just wash it every three to four days.”

― Joe Keery

“Do I get recognized? I guess it depends on if I’m wearing a hat or not. The hairdo is a dead giveaway. There’s nothing I can do. It’s just the way my hair grows.”

― Joe Keery

“I don’t wash my hair really too much, and I just roll out of bed and try to push it out of my eyes.”

― Joe Keery

“People have always been like, ‘You’ve got a wild head of hair!’”

― Joe Keery

“On the first season of our show, I commissioned a Native American artist to make up, ’cause I’m known for the tomahawk, besides the hair and the leather outfit and the whole thing.”

― Joe Lando

“I dyed my hair blonde in that movie, so my head doesn’t match my grill.”

― Joe Pesci

“Benji usually tries to match his hair with his underwear, and you know how he had the pink hair for a while well we caught him in a pink thong one day!”

― Joel Madden

“Performing in front of a live audience can be pretty intimidating, so having a full head of hair was important to me.”

― Joey Fatone

“I’m really low maintenance for a girl. I pretty much shower, attempt to fix my hair, throw on some mineral make up, and go.”

― Johanna Braddy

“My must-have hair products are Phyto silk spray and Kusco-Murphy setting lotion.”

― Johanna Braddy

“Having been an actor in Hollywood for a certain amount of time, I always felt a pressure to be sort of a neutral person. ‘Don’t do anything to your hair. Don’t tell them your age. Don’t tell them you’re gay. Don’t tell them anything that could limit you, specify you as a person.’ I always hated that, actually moved out of L.A. because of that.”

― John Cameron Mitchell

“I have fans that write to me and say, ‘Why do you have those blonde streaks in the front of your hair?’ And I’m like, ‘It’s not blonde. It’s grey.’”

― John Corabi

“It’s like those high-school yearbook photos that everyone would rather not see: Oh my God, look at that mullet hair. I have those photos too, but for me, they’re, like, entire movies. And they show them on cable.”

― John Cusack

“Coming down the 18th, your heart’s pounding, and the hair is sticking straight up on your arms – there’s no feeling like it.”

― John Daly

“Right after we recorded ‘Satanic Satanist’ and ‘American Ghetto’ here in Boston, we decided we’d grow our hair out. This is – was – like the Beatles thing. I wanted to see these pictures later in life.”

― John Gourley

“Being in school, whenever I laughed or smiled, I would turn to find someone staring at me with this terrible hatred and disgust. I had to control everything – control my voice, control my facial expressions, control my hair and my clothes, and where I walked and where I sat – at every moment. I think that drove me to terrible anxiety.”

― John Grant

“I question the political judgement of those who would have the nerve to paint Christ white with his obvious African nose, lips and wooly hair.”

― John Henrik Clarke

“The second stage set in ten or fifteen days after the bombing. Its first symptom was falling hair. Diarrhea and fever, which in some cases went as high as 106, came next.”

― John Hersey

“Most people presume my mustache is not real because it’s much darker than my regular hair.”

― John Hodgman

“At 19, I didn’t have a hair on my face. When I was 20, I looked 14.”

― John Isner

“I used to be really fat, but now I’m not. I used to have hair, but now I don’t. I used to be able to see without corrective lenses, but now I can’t. One of these this is exacerbated by the fact that I’m an editor. One of these things is true despite the fact that I’m an editor. One of them has nothing to do with me being an editor.”

― John Joseph Adams

“Martin Jarvis was to have played the part originally but I think I had longer hair or something, I know not.”

― John Leeson

“It doesn’t matter how long my hair is or what colour my skin is or whether I’m a woman or a man.”

― John Lennon

“The real color of my hair is mouse. I always want to be ginger, which I was when I was born, or blond, because I live in L.A., and I want to look like I go surfing without any physical effort.”

― John Lydon

“If you look over the years, the styles have changed – the clothes, the hair, the production, the approach to the songs. The icing to the cake has changed flavors. But if you really look at the cake itself, it’s really the same.”

― John Oates

“Why pour shampoo into a rabbit’s eyes to see how much shampoo you can put in an adult’s eyes before they go blind? I’ll put them in my hair, in my eyes before I would give them to anyone else.”

― John Paul DeJoria

“Geez, I wish I could tell you I had a whole bunch of ’80s hair bands, you know something you really wouldn’t expect, but I don’t know that the music police would be that surprised, because most of the stuff that I am influenced by is in evidence in the music.”

― John Sebastian

“I’ve dyed my hair a million times and it looks terrible, always. It just looks fake. And it doesn’t make me look that much younger.”

― John Slattery

“Four hoarse blasts of a ship’s whistle still raise the hair on my neck and set my feet to tapping.”

― John Steinbeck

“Most of the people interviewing me are far more square than me. I think it’s the ET thing. I’m sitting there, my hair is combed, and I’m in a suit.”

― John Tesh

“A hair-hopper is someone who pretends they’re rich, who really wasn’t brought up very wealthy but now tries to brag that they’re rich, and they spend too much time on their hair.”

― John Waters

“I went through different looks. At one period, I was preppy because that’s how I grew up. But then I had bleached hair in the front. And I used to wear – then I wanted to be a beatnik. It was hard to be a beatnik in suburban Baltimore. But I wanted to be one.”

― John Waters

“Around ’62 in Baltimore, all the girls had those big hairdos. And then suddenly, a few of the really hip ones started doing their hair straight. And people panicked. And it was called going ‘Joe,’ meaning Joe College. And people would say, ‘I don’t know. Should I be ‘Joe’? I can’t decide.’”

― John Waters

“For three days after death, hair and fingernails continue to grow but phone calls taper off.”

― Johnny Carson

“There are situations when, in your singing, in your interpretation of songs, for instance, when you want a straight tone. And I have to work really hard at getting a straight tone… That’s sort of like if you have curly hair, you have curly hair.”

― Johnny Mathis

“I will be 60 or 70 years old still rocking my Chanel blazer with my hair all coiffed.”

― Johnny Weir

“I’ve been acting since I was six. I actually played a boy when I was six in ‘Tommy.’ I played Tommy and they put a wig on me. They put up my hair and put this little boy wig on me and that was my first acting experience. Then I did some other professional theater. I did Shakespeare when I was older.”

― JoJo

“I was inspired by Colin Farrell in the fact that he’s Irish and has freckles but with black hair. I’m a bunch of different things, Irish, Polish, Native American, and French, but I wanted to tap into that Irish side and be freckle-y with black hair, so that’s what I did.”

― JoJo

“I have been dyeing my hair since I was, like, 2.”

― JoJo Siwa

“I realize how talented our hair and wardrobe people are every time I have to get dressed on my own.”

― Jon Hamm

“Yorkshire weather can turn quickly. At one Auld Lang Syne race, it dropped to -16C. The frost turned everybody’s hair grey. I couldn’t take my shoes off, as my laces had frozen solid.”

― Jonathan Brownlee

“I used to have quite long hair, and I decided that I wanted to get it cut. I’d never met the person who did it, and she cut it into some kind of dreadful mullet. It looked like a triangle on my head. The other kids were merciless.”

― Jonathan Stroud

“I love changing hair color. I love doing hair shape. I love the social aspect of salons. I love clients, and because of doing hair, I’ve heard so many life stories.”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“I wanted long hair my whole life. When I was a little kid, my mom would be like, ‘We get our hair cut once a month.’ So I just always got my hair cut.”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“People think because they sweat, their hair is dirty. False. It’s just salt and your natural oil.”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“For keeping hair long and healthy, I like to use silk pillowcases; they conduct less heat and keep your ends less frayed. Also, I sleep with my hair in a very loose top bun to keep my ends away from my body heat. This also keeps your hair from getting tangled at the nape of your neck.”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“I think that I’m, like, an introverted extrovert. At the end of the day, when I get done doing hair at the salon or shooting a day of ‘Queer Eye’ or whatever, I definitely want to come home and, like, order pasta and sit with my cat or just one person or no people.”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“When I moved to L.A. in my early twenties, I was growing my hair. Then, when I was 25, I cut it off and was like, ‘Oh no, I think I’m a long hair person until I go bald!’”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“Leaving your hair down to sleep causes friction on your ends between your body heat and the pillow case. Securing the ends away from your body helps preserve your ends.”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“If you have body hair, I’m like, ‘Have your body hair. Have it sticking up the top of your shirt.’ I’m really about body positivity and self-love.”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“I always wanted to play with people’s hair. I was really into ‘The Golden Girls’ and how big their hair was. I always had Barbies and Ken dolls, whose hair I wanted to play with and was always styling. I was very lucky – I never had to wonder what I was passionate about. I’ve always known that I’m really, really passionate about grooming.”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“Think about how your jeans would look if you washed and dried them every single day. That’s like our hair, and you can’t change your hair as often as your pants, so cutting down on washing cuts down on long-term damage.”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“Even though I’m a hairdresser and I love doing hair, I feel like I don’t look like a groomer. When I think of how a groomer would look in relation to the first version of ‘Queer Eye,’ I feel like I don’t fit in that box.”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“My biggest secret is that I don’t over-wash my hair. I wash it twice a week at the most, unless I’m on set every day.”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“The second you’re bleaching hair more than three or four levels on a consistent basis and want it long, and then you’re heat styling it and living in the world – it’s just impossible. You can get it there for a moment, and then you might get a couple re-touches out of it.”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“I started growing my hair out when I was, like, 22, 23. I just stopped cutting it.”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“Since ‘Idol’ I’ve gotten used to having an amazing hair and make-up team around me, so I’m starting to get picky. I know what I like now and I’m happy to say ‘Could we maybe change that?’ if I don’t like something. I don’t yell or anything, but I think I could definitely start to act a little diva-ish when it comes to my look.”

― Jordin Sparks

“A v-neck T-shirt is the manliest of all upper-body garments. The defining feature of the style is a plummeting neckline that we normally associate with women’s fashion, but when worn by a guy, it basically says, ‘Here is a pie slice of chest hair that forms an arrow to my gut.’ The deeper the ‘V,’ the more masculine the shirt.”

― Josh Gondelman

“I had a Screech-from-‘Saved by the Bell’ kind of vibe in that I hung out with people and had friends while having, like, big, curly hair and being generally a dork.”

― Josh Gondelman

“As a new artist there’s always outside influences trying to tell you how to make a song better for radio and how to do your hair.”

― Josh Groban

“I got to play a real D-bag lawyer, and comb my hair really awfully and kiss Emma Stone, so it was a really wonderful day on set.”

― Josh Groban

“I don’t like facial hair.”

― Josh Holloway

“I’m pretty simple, I don’t use a hairbrush or a certain kind of hair product.”

― Josh Hutcherson

“I can be whatever. I can wear shoes or don’t wear shoes. I can tie my hair up or wear it down. It doesn’t matter.”

― Joss Stone

“I’m 19, I’m a girl, I’m very young, I like all sorts of different things, I like all sorts of different styles of music, I like all sorts of different styles of clothes, I like all sorts of different colors of hair.”

― Joss Stone

“I’ve seen plenty of films where the projector broke. The problems that we have in the digital age are exactly the same as we had. Instead of, ‘There’s a hair in the gate,’ it’s, ‘The computer ate the footage.’ There will always be things like that going on. Nothing is perfect.”

― Joss Whedon

“My husband and I are in preproduction of three movies, a Latin show, and a children’s animation. I’m doing a very unique nail polish line, and finally, I’m developing a hair care line because people always ask me about my hair care system. I do a mask once a week that my grandma taught me how to make, so I want to share it with everyone.”

― Joyce Giraud

“My one main secret I did right after my pageants days, is I only wash my hair once a week. I tell everyone, ‘You have to stop washing your hair so much!’”

― Joyce Giraud

“I wash my hair once a week. You can do that. I swear. My sister-in-law and all of my friends were like, ‘I can’t do that. It sounds gross.’ Once you train your hair, it will do whatever you want it to do. And on day seven when it’s too oily, you just put it in a ponytail.”

― Joyce Giraud

“I see children now, and many things surprise me: they ask me about my boots and why I don’t dye my hair. I wonder, ‘Why don’t you talk to me about how to cross the ball, control it, the position of the body when I strike the ball?’”

― Juan Mata

“We all have times when we go home at night and pull out our hair and feel misunderstood and lonely and like we’re falling. I think the brain is such that there is always going to be something missing.”

― Jude Law

“The color of somebody’s skin or the way he wears his hair or clothes has nothing to do with anything.”

― Judge Mills Lane

“Yet I’ve discovered that how I look is not a function of anything as ephemeral as my hair.”

― Judith Light

“I was 23, and that was my first professional job. Anybody who has curly hair knows you don’t want it to be brushed out because it becomes a never-ending tangle.”

― Judy Davis

“I want a part where I can use my own hair, my own voice, and maybe even be literate.”

― Judy Holliday

“When I was growing up, I always thought my hair was messy.”

― Julia Louis-Dreyfus

“I guess if I wrote a book one day, it would be about hair.”

― Julia Louis-Dreyfus

“So much of my body changed from being pregnant. My hair got so much longer from all of the multivitamins and pregnancy vitamins, like the New Chapter’s Every Woman Vitamin I’ve been taking – it’s a lot of folic acid. I know a lot of moms cut their hair, but I just want to keep mine long.”

― Julia Restoin Roitfeld

“I had no boundaries at home, so I had nothing to push against. I only rebelled with clothing when I was 14. I would wear purple Doc Martens and had purple streaks in my hair, dirty jeans, and baggy tops. Very Britpop. Anything that wasn’t girly or feminine. My mother hated it.”

― Julia Restoin Roitfeld

“My real hair color is kind of a dark blonde. Now I just have mood hair.”

― Julia Roberts

“I enjoy hats. And when one has filthy hair, that is a good accessory.”

― Julia Roberts

“One of my favorite things about working on ‘Glory Daze’ is getting to wear amazing ’80s outfits coupled with fabulously over-the-top hair and makeup. My wardrobe usually consists of colorful sweaters, denim skirts, high-waisted shorts, crop tops, dangly earrings, jean jackets, and, of course, panty hose and shoulder pads.”

― Julianna Guill

“I definitely listened to country music. I don’t think I listened to hair bands as much as I did Bruce Springsteen and U2 and Aerosmith.”

― Julianne Hough

“I totally think there was a country hair phase. If you look at all the mullets, and Dolly Parton, and Reba’s hair, Tim McGraw’s hair, Blake Shelton’s hair, they definitely had their moments.”

― Julianne Hough

“Okay, I’ll say I would go back in time and bring scientists with me and create a hairspray that would not cause global warming. But it would still give us ’80s hair.”

― Julianne Hough

“I have a really beautiful mother. She is close to 60, and to this day doesn’t wear a speck of make up or dye her hair, and everyone who meets her is completely dazzled by her. She seriously glows.”

― Julianne Nicholson

“I hate being mean. I watch those roasts on Comedy Central and they make the hair on the back of my neck stand up.”

― Julie Brown

“I wish we did have responsibility for the hair. I have been screwed up by the hair on many occasions.”

― Julie Harris

“Nobody would know it to look at me, but the movies I liked as a kid were musicals – ‘All That Jazz,’ ‘Hair,’ ‘Fame,’ ‘Annie,’ all that stuff – that’s where my little youthful imagination was.”

― Juliette Lewis

“When I had long hair, I used to tie it back, so the guys would say I would look like the ‘Gypsy.’ I used to hate that, but the less you like a nickname, the more it sticks.”

― Junior dos Santos

“I once used a fork to comb my hair because there was a time when I didn’t own a hairbrush.”

― Juno Temple

“No matter how I cut my hair, when it grows out, it will always grow out into The Bowl. I just naturally have a bowl.”

― Justin Lee

“I was the runt of my class. So I got away with the whole ‘Oh, he’s so cute’ thing. I was in upper division math courses, so I would have junior and senior girls in my class, and they’d just sit behind me and play with my hair. I didn’t mind that so much.”

― Justin Lee

“The only thing that I travel with is an Ole Henriksen facial cleanser, something that my skin is used to avoid using different soaps at different hotels all the time, and Givenchy Man Pro-Energizing Massive Moisturizer. I usually keep my hair pretty short, too, so I don’t require a lot of stuff.”

― Justin Timberlake

“I’ve always been a fan of the Dark and Lovely brand. I grew up using their products at home. I only work with brands I believe in, and I’m so happy to be a hair color ambassador.”

― Justine Skye

“My hair color is super important to my look because I feel like it helps kind of define who I am. It’s like a characteristic of mine that makes me feel comfortable and different from the rest.”

― Justine Skye

“My hair is purple, and unicorns mean a lot to me. They’re unique, rare, majestic, and beautiful, and I think those are some things that I embody. I wasn’t always confident, and so once I gained my confidence, I was like, ‘I’m a unicorn, and I don’t care what anybody says.’ My fans are unicorns, too. I like to call them my ‘unicorn nation.’”

― Justine Skye

“When I was 16, I started to spend a lot of time in Soho and downtown New York and noticed everyone’s style and the eclectic things people would wear. And that’s when I started to experiment with things like my lipstick and mixing different kinds of pieces and, of course, my hair color.”

― Justine Skye

“On the real, because you’re dyeing your hair so much, it gets really damaged, so you just want to use a lot of products that help hydrate it and keep it nice and keep it moisturized. It gets really, really dry.”

― Justine Skye

“My hair is always going to be purple; that’s kind of my thing. It doesn’t matter what length I make it, as long as it’s purple.”

― Justine Skye

“Before I go to bed, I twist my hair so it doesn’t get knotted by morning and cover it with a silk scarf so it stays moisturized. In addition, I tend to wash my hair around once a week or every two weeks, depending on what I’m doing with it.”

― Justine Skye

“I use Manic Panic to dye my hair. Sometimes I do it myself.”

― Justine Skye

“My mom never let me dye my hair, and I would beg her every single day. When I was 16, I told her I wanted to dye it purple, and she let me – probably because she never thought I’d actually do it. Then I just stuck with it.”

― Justine Skye

“The first three years my hair was purple, I still was trying to convince myself that I hated the color purple.”

― Justine Skye

“One thing that I must do with every wash is deep condition. I have this theory in my head that it will make my hair really healthy, especially since I’m always keeping it in different styles.”

― Justine Skye

“Growing up, it was always a huge battle with my mom to let me color my hair or add extensions.”

― Justine Skye

“I’m an only child. Mostly raised by my father outside of Saratoga, doing martial arts and snowmobiling. I wore sweaters, jeans and sneakers. I was more interested in four-wheeling in the Catskills than doing my hair and makeup at 7 A.M. before school.”

― JWoww

“I also said, men are like curling irons, they never get out of your hair. And they are like government bonds, they take so long to mature.”

― Kabir Bedi

“I take these vitamins that make my hair grow like crazy. They’re called Herpanacine, and I get them on Amazon – they’ve got echinacea and vitamins A and E. They’re really good for your immune system, too. You don’t get sick, and they really help your skin, hair, and nails.”

― Kacy Hill

“I was having a bad day, and my friend said, ‘Go wash your hair.’ I thought it was really silly – but it made me feel so much better. It might be a small thing, but it works. Washing it off and starting over.”

― Kaley Cuoco

“Sometimes I leave mayonnaise on the ends of my hair for a few hours while I’m writing; it’s a really good moisturizer.”

― Kali Uchis

“I know a lot of writers who tell me they ‘always’ knew how to read. They can’t remember a time before reading. And those writers make me want to tear my hair out.”

― Kameron Hurley

“When I look at myself, I’d like not to have hair on the top of the ceiling.”

― Kara DioGuardi

“I loved Belle in ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ I just wanted to be her. I’m a brunette, so I think I kind of cling to all those princesses that have brown hair. I just wanted to be them.”

― Kara Lindsay

“I dyed my hair pink when I was fifteen.”

― Karen Gillan

“I always worked mostly in Quebec. I never thought of the States, somehow. I don’t know – I don’t have blue eyes or blond hair. I thought I didn’t fit with the stereotype of America.”

― Karine Vanasse

“I like keeping myself hydrated and taking care of my body, skin, hair… I feel it’s good to maintain yourself.”

― Karishma Tanna

“When I was a child I asked my mother what homosexuality was about and she said – and this was 100 years ago in Germany and she was very open-minded – ‘It’s like hair color. It’s nothing. Some people are blond and some people have dark hair. It’s not a subject.’ This was a very healthy attitude.”

― Karl Lagerfeld

“My hair is not really white; it’s kind of grayish, and I don’t like the color. So I make it totally white with Klorane dry shampoo. That is the best thing to do because my hair is always clean.”

― Karl Lagerfeld

“Our hair is forever. We have to take care of it and maintain it.”

― Karrueche Tran

“I’ve never dyed my hair, never fixed my teeth or gotten a tan.”

― Kat Dennings

“Even if you throw your hair up in a quick topknot or ponytail, you can add instant polish by wearing a headband or bejeweled barrette.”

― Kat Graham

“When I was a kid, I always had my hair in two plaits. But for dancing, I had to have it in a bun because I did ballet.”

― Katarina Johnson-Thompson

“I used to play football with a load of lads, and I would be like a secret agent going out with a hat on so they wouldn’t see my hair in a bun.”

― Katarina Johnson-Thompson

“I was one of those girls in class who always had her hair in plaits, was always with the boys, always playing football in the street.”

― Katarina Johnson-Thompson

“Hair is also a problem. I remember once, when I was reporting from Beirut at the height of the civil war, someone wrote in to the BBC complaining about my appearance.”

― Kate Adie

“When not working, I use a lot of treatments; from ancient casero – honey, avocado, stuff like that – other times, I buy ones you leave on for a few minutes. I don’t blow dry my hair ever unless for work; I’d rather go for the natural look.”

― Kate del Castillo

“Even when I was a kid, I had this insane head of flaming hair. It looked like a wig.”

― Kate Mara

“I do get approached occasionally, but not a ton. I’m unrecognizable because I’m coated in cat hair and sweat. And there’s a sort of yeti quality to my presence… so I don’t think that people can see the face.”

― Kate McKinnon

“I hate the feeling of having hair on my neck.”

― Kate McKinnon

“My couch is made of cat’s hair. The cushions have been obscured, and it’s made of salt-and-pepper fur. I can’t have visitors. I can’t ask people to sit on that couch because they become implicated in the furriness of it, and they’re walking around, and it’s not fair to people.”

― Kate McKinnon

“I have hair that looks like you could just take it off and plug a new style on.”

― Kate Micucci

“I have white hair now, but a lot of it, and I’m still very glamorous, and so I won’t disappoint, I hope! I’ll still be wearing the tight leather trousers and high-heel boots, regardless of what age!”

― Kate O’Mara

“I have very long, wild hair, a suntan and wear knee high boots and ignore all the rules about what you should or shouldn’t wear at whatever age.”

― Kate O’Mara

“I had really long hair, and we had this hairdresser, Laverne, that was in Athens. And she did my hair up really big. And she said, ‘Honey, when you hang your head over the bed and make love, that hair is not going to move.’”

― Kate Pierson

“My singing is part of me, like my stoutness, or my light hair, or my poor eyesight.”

― Kate Smith

“I know I’m fat and I know my hair is straight, but I can sing.”

― Kate Smith

“People always say you can’t do a red lip if you have red hair but I’ve never shied away from it. I think you can absolutely do that. It’s more about hair colour and complexion.”

― Kate Walsh

“Indeed, throughout much of history and in many cultures, redheads have been viewed with suspicion and fear – and even killed – because of their hair.”

― Kate Williams

“Precise historical reasons are difficult to pinpoint, but red hair, it seems, bestows a sense of otherness. Red is the colour of blood and danger.”

― Kate Williams

“I kept my head; I mean, I’ve never been one of those people who ended up in the gutter with sick in my hair.”

― Kate Winslet

“In films I might look glamorous, but I’ve been in hair and make-up for two hours.”

― Kate Winslet

“I won’t allow magazines in the house. When I was younger, I wanted to have my hair cut like so-and-so in the class above me at school, not somebody in a magazine. You see young girls trying to dress like so-and-so because they’ve seen lots of pictures of them.”

― Kate Winslet

“When I first met Alan, I was absolutely terrified. I was 19, he was Alan Rickman, and he’s got that voice, and I remember meeting him in the hair and make-up trailer and thinking, ‘I’m going to die. He thinks I’m rubbish. Why am I here?’”

― Kate Winslet

“People associate girls with long blonde hair with the girls in ‘Clueless’ or ‘Legally Blonde.’ You can’t be smart and educated and have an opinion because you are supposed to be stupid.”

― Katee Sackhoff

“I fought for a long time on ‘Battlestar’ to let my hair grow out. It was very frustrating because every single person on the show was changing their hair. It was not fair.”

― Katee Sackhoff

“I would literally have to go meet people so they could see I didn’t have big red hair and wear high heels constantly. It was just really ingrained in people.”

― Katey Sagal

“I do tend to play characters that have a lot of costume and hair change. I sort of like the change of physicality thing.”

― Katey Sagal

“I just like to shake things up, and your hair is one way to do it.”

― Katherine Heigl

“I have no hips, and I feel like my body’s like a teenage boy’s. But I can have the hair long, put on makeup, wear a dress, and do the exact opposite as well.”

― Katherine Moennig

“Alice Levine has great unique style and beautiful red hair.”

― Katherine Ryan

“I had white hair when I was 19. I think bleach can be addictive, and before long, you’ve gone too far with it and can’t tell you’ve got a problem. It was over-processed and genuinely crispy, but I thought I looked amazing.”

― Katherine Ryan

“The more you mess with texture and colour, the worse your hair is going to feel.”

― Katherine Ryan

“I always tried to fit in, so I was a cheerleader with the orange skin and white-blonde hair, and Hooters was part of that.”

― Katherine Ryan

“We should celebrate how amazing our bodies are! We all have things that we like and dislike about our bodies, but we need to focus on what we love – maybe it’s a great smile, strong legs or curly hair?”

― Katherine Schwarzenegger

“I don’t do my hair very perfectly because I think it looks sexier when you don’t have everything perfectly structured out.”

― Katherine Schwarzenegger

“When you are the kid of an actor, it’s always a very inviting world. Everyone is nice to you, the hair and make-up people braid your hair and play with you, and the costume department makes outfits for your teddy bears.”

― Katherine Waterston

“My hair’s been every color. My hair’s been all over the map.”

― Katie Cassidy

“I could announce one morning that the world was going to blow up in three hours and people would be calling in about my hair!”

― Katie Couric

“I went with a pixie cut when my daughter was really young. It was easy – I mean, it was really easy. But I missed my long hair. Especially after a long winter, all I want is sexy summer hair.”

― Katie Holmes

“When I was a little girl – if I could have – I would have gone a year without washing my hair. I hated it, to the point where my sisters had to pay me to wash my hair. I think, after experiencing that, I like to wash it every day.”

― Katie Holmes

“Call me old-fashioned, but armpit hair is not high up there on my wish list of things to have.”

― Katie Hopkins

“I use coconut oil in my cooking and as a beauty product. It’s great for sauteing and baking and makes the best moisturizer and hair treatment. I’m coconut-oil obsessed!”

― Katie Lee

“I am really terrible when it comes to guys. Inside, I just see myself as this overweight tomboy with funny-coloured hair and bad skin.”

― Katie McGrath

“I do like my hair being pulled from time to time, it’s like a pair of reins, innit?”

― Katie Price

“You know you’re living right when you wake up, brush your hair – and confetti falls out!”

― Katy Perry

“For one of my first TV jobs, I was required to cut my hair, dress a certain way, and wear a certain amount of makeup. I was even told to have my hair cut based on a picture in a magazine. I realized that until I complied, I wasn’t going to get any airtime.”

― Katy Tur

“I don’t wash my hair.”

― Katya Zamolodchikova

“When I was younger, I wanted my hair to look like Molly Ringwald’s.”

― Kay Cannon

“I’ve missed London so much for its fashion. No disrespect to the girls in Manchester, but some really do look like clones – there’s a lot of hair extensions and fake tans. You’re free to experiment down here.”

― Kaya Scodelario

“I’m not a girly girl. I don’t brush my hair.”

― Kaya Scodelario

“My hair was always frizzy. I always wanted to be blonde with lovely straight hair. I was very skinny. I was quite tomboyish, just very quiet. I always wanted to fit in; I just couldn’t.”

― Kaya Scodelario

“My first secondary school was in East Finchley, and I was one of only five white people in the year. I was really skinny and flat-chested with frizzy hair. I don’t consider myself posh, but my mum brought me up to speak properly, and they picked up on that, as all kids do.”

― Kaya Scodelario

“I’m one of the only actresses in Los Angeles who has never waited tables – yet – and I’m so terrible at holding trays. When we shot the ‘Vampire Diaries’ pilot, I totally spilled water all down Nina Dobrev, and she had to get her hair and make-up redone.”

― Kayla Ewell

“In terms of its endorphin-boosting potential, a good hair day is on par with a good workout.”

― Kayleen Schaefer

“The funny thing about children is that, whichever room we’re in, that’s where they’ll be. If I’m in the bath, they’ll want to be in there too, playing with the toothbrush pot or brushing my hair.”

― Keeley Hawes

“If my eyebrows are cool, if my eyeliner is popping, if I’m moisturized, then I can pretty much wear whatever I want. I think if your hair and your face are together, I think it’s pretty much polished!”

― Kehlani

“When you get all this stuff on and you put on the guns and the hair, it has an effect on the actor. It tends to lend a certain something to the way you feel as you’re just walking around looking that way.”

― Keith Carradine

“I’ve never had my hair cut by anybody, I do it all myself.”

― Keith Richards

“I don’t curl my hair. In fact, I don’t know how to.”

― Keke Palmer

“I feel like I’ve been known for having long black hair, so when I took all my extensions out and cut my own hair, it was the most freeing thing, I think, I’ve ever done. That was my 21st year: I cut my hair, I was doing Broadway; I was living in New York, and I was really having a moment of becoming my individual self, and it was amazing.”

― Keke Palmer

“Motion capture is amazing. I prefer it. You wear a ‘Power Ranger’-esque suit, you have tape balls on you, you have 60 cameras around you capturing your every movement and there’s no hair, no makeup.”

― Kellan Lutz

“I don’t think I’m misunderstood, but there is definitely a certain side of me that the press focuses on – my body, my hair, or who I’m dating – which has never really served me as an actor. It’s served me in the commercial world, making money as a model, but the media perception has really hindered my acting career.”

― Kelly Brook

“I just blow-dry my hair and put on mascara and lip gloss, and I’m ready to go. I really don’t get long nails. They’re so Edward Scissorhands.”

― Kelly Clarkson

“I had the most expensive haircut you can get, and I was walking around with my hair in rollers backstage, and my hair still came out looking like I was shot out of a cannon and I had just gotten out of bed.”

― Kelly Cutrone

“You know, I change my hair color a lot, I do all sorts of different things.”

― Kelly Lynch

“I’ve always wanted to dye my hair a bright color.”

― Kelsea Ballerini

“There’s this misconception out there that at any level of celebrity, you have someone to do hair and makeup when you’re out touring, but no, it is just not the case. I do it all myself.”

― Kelsea Ballerini

“I didn’t have any bridesmaids. Instead, one friend did my hair, another did my makeup, and a third loaned me her shimmering Jimmy Choo wedges!”

― Keltie Knight

“After giving birth, I never brushed my hair, my teeth, or took a shower. I looked in the mirror one day and was really depressed.”

― Kendra Wilkinson

“I have had a really terrible makeover experience gone wrong. For a job, I was wearing a tank top that came a little low, and I was told to pluck my chest hair. I went and shaved it, but they wanted to pluck them!”

― Kendrick Sampson

“Once upon a time, growing up male gave little boys a sense of certainty about the natural order of things. We had short hair, wore pants, and played baseball. Girls had long hair, wore skirts, and, no matter how hard they tried, always threw a baseball just like a girl.”

― Kenneth R. Miller

“We know grooming is important for people. To get their hair done, to get makeup and things like that – that makes a person feel better.”

― Kenneth Williams

“My quest these days is to find my long lost inner child, but I’m afraid if I do, I’ll end up with food in my hair and way too in love with the cats.”

― Kenny Loggins

“I’ve always said that gray hair looks good on everybody but yourself. To me, it makes me look old.”

― Kenny Rogers

“My father was the nurturing one, the one who always made sure my sister and I ate properly and that our hair was brushed… He really took care of the logistics of our upbringing.”

― Kenza Fourati

“I always do my own makeup, hair, and styling, including in videos and on, like, album covers.”

― Kerli

“As an actor, it’s a very strange adjustment to start playing the father. I was used to playing a kid my whole life, and then all of a sudden, it’s like, boom. I guess when I let my hair go grey, things changed.”

― Kerr Smith

“The kinds of people that we see on television making science are old white guys with crazy hair, and those aren’t the only people making science.”

― Kerry Bishe

“I grew up in the Bible Belt and I made my own clothes and dyed my hair purple. Nobody ever knew what to do with me.”

― Kesha

“My mom didn’t believe in putting chemicals in hair. But when I got to college, we didn’t have A/C in our dorms freshman year. So after several days of waking up looking like a Chia Pet, I was like ‘OK, I’m gonna get a perm.’ And then my hair revolted and fell out. I was over that quick, fast and in a hurry.”

― Keshia Knight Pulliam

“No matter what your hair looks like once it’s wet, it’s about embracing it and loving yourself for you and all that that entails.”

― Keshia Knight Pulliam

“When I go into ‘You’re the Worst,’ I’m very glammed up, and my hair and makeup is va-va-voom. Now what I’m having fun with in ‘Grease’ is, honestly, I go to rehearsals with zero makeup. When I get pimples, I get excited about it, like ‘Yay! It helps the character!’ The frumpier and uglier and grosser, the better with Jan.”

― Kether Donohue

“A moustache is actually the one thing I really can grow. One of the bad parts about my facial hair situation is that I can’t grow sideburns. I’m happy to still have my own hair on my head, but I can’t grow any sideburns. If you ever see me with sideburns, they’re not real.”

― Kevin Bacon

“I like when my face tingles, when the hair on the back of my neck stands up.”

― Kevin Costner

“If you look at me close enough, there’s a small resemblance to a chicken nugget. I don’t know if it’s my skin texture or my hair, but the resemblance is definitely there.”

― Kevin Hart

“When my hair is dyed, I feel like I’m 35 again.”

― Kevin Nash

“Combing your hair after a long time is terrible.”

― Khalid

“The thing about going back to El Paso, it’s overwhelming sometimes. I look at the support that I get and the success that I’ve had, and I can’t walk anywhere without being spotted. My hair might be the biggest crime in this situation.”

― Khalid

“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.”

― Khalil Gibran

“Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.”

― Khalil Gibran

“I just let my hair go – if there’s no hairdresser around I really can’t be bothered!”

― Khloe Kardashian

“I love doing my makeup – mostly because I’m pretty good at it. What I can’t do is hair!”

― Khloe Kardashian

“Even though I was very young, it was traumatizing seeing someone try weird things on their skin all for the sake of being lighter. It’s as common as relaxing your hair or maybe even brushing your teeth. I had friends not wanting to do it, but their moms gave them creams to help lighten their skin. That’s how accessible it is.”

― Khoudia Diop

“I ripped off half my hair with a waxing strip, and it didn’t grow back for, like, 5 months.”

― Kian Lawley

“People think it is such an easy life, and you just go get ready, and someone does your hair and make up, and all you have to do is say a few dialogues. But there is lot more behind it. You are getting into a particular frame of mind to get into a scene; you have to get your emotion right.”

― Kiara Advani

“This is one of those industries where you never have full control of your hair.”

― Kiernan Shipka

“I genuinely think that I look better with no hair, and I feel sexier.”

― Kiersey Clemons

“Growing up, I had really big hair. Giant hair. As I got older, the goal was to make it smaller – I wanted to look like everyone else. So I got a weave. I would manipulate my hair and try to make it straight.”

― Kiersey Clemons

“It’s a classic love story: me and my hair. I have loved my hair. I have betrayed my hair. My hair and I have gone through this long, gut-wrenching relationship.”

― Kiersey Clemons

“It’s beautiful when someone can carry her own hair and body and curves and bumps.”

― Kiersey Clemons

“I got into animals by drawing hair follicles. I liked drawing hair, and from that I got into feathers and fur, then into images of animals. The patterning is the same, but the proportions of the body change from one animal to the next. A lot of it is just geometry and consciousness.”

― Kiki Smith

“My hair is dry. A lot of shampoos and greasers don’t work with me, and so I started playing around with a chemist on a product that’ll work with me.”

― Killer Mike

“I got to L.A., and they said I had to lose weight, let my hair grow and buy some dresses. I was nailing auditions with my readings, but they wouldn’t hire me because I wasn’t putting on the glam. It just didn’t occur to me.”

― Kim Cattrall

“I wish I was more of a song-and-dance girl. I sang in a show once. I wish I could be in ‘Hair.’”

― Kim Dickens

“My agent sent me the script and I loved it. I wondered how they would turn me into a chimp. My agent said it would probably not entail to much time. Just some hair and make-up. I found out that it was not so simple.”

― Kim Hunter

“I am Armenian, so of course I am obsessed with laser hair removal! Arms, bikini, legs, underarms… my entire body is hairless.”

― Kim Kardashian

“As I was finding my musical style, I found my personal style as well, and moving from Germany to L.A. was part of that, raiding the secondhand stores in L.A. trying out different beauty themes, finding my love for huge lashes and big, long hair extensions.”

― Kim Petras

“I had this roommate in college who would get up almost 2 hours before class to do hair and makeup. That’s not for me.”

― Kim Raver

“I love to roll out of bed and throw something on. I had this roommate in college who would get up almost 2 hours before class to do hair and makeup. That’s not for me.”

― Kim Raver

“I like things in my hair – big feather pieces.”

― Kimberly Caldwell

“I love seeing my mom and my daughter embrace their natural hair. I’m glad I’ve embraced it, too.”

― Kimberly Elise

“I decided to start embracing and wearing my natural hair, but there was only one problem; I didn’t know what to do with it or how to style it. Growing up, all I knew was my relaxed, processed hair, so I had to go through this learning phase.”

― Kimberly Elise

“In my college days, I went wild with my hair. I dyed it every color in the book and, quite naturally, my hair would break off from all the damage. When our hair breaks off, of course, there’s only one thing to do – braid it up. I wore braids for a while and would always feel like I just never knew what to do with my hair.”

― Kimberly Elise

“I have a better head of hair than Rick Perry; it’s just not in a place I can show you.”

― Kinky Friedman

“I attract a different kind of boy when my hair’s red. I get more quality men – like a more thoughtful, nerdy dude.”

― Kirsten Dunst

“I shaved a quarter of my hair one time, and my poor nana was crying when I FaceTimed her, but I was like, ‘It’s just hair! It’s fun.’”

― Kirstin Maldonado

“I love pairing evening gowns with hair tied up, like a boho updo or a curly chignon.”

― Kirti Kulhari

“I think having naturally beautiful skin and hair and just glowing from within, that’s my idea of beautiful.”

― Kirti Kulhari

“It took me two years to just get my first shoot – for Shanti Amla Hair oil.”

― Kirti Kulhari

“I actually don’t do much to my hair. It gets fussed over a lot on projects because there’s a lot of it, and it’s boy’s hair, but as far as me, I tend to let it do what it wants.”

― Kit Harington

“Once upon a perfect night, unclouded and still, there came the face of a pale and beautiful lady. The tresses of her hair reached out to make the constellations, and the dewy vapours of her gown fell soft upon the land.”

― Kit Williams

“Even when I was in my 20s and at my most beautiful, I was never obsessed with my looks. I didn’t dye my hair or wear make-up.”

― Koo Stark

“I am the worst at doing my hair. I have no clue how to do it; I just feel like I need to go to hair beauty school or something because it’s really becoming a problem.”

― Kourtney Kardashian

“When I do my hair down, it just does not look good. It’s just stringy, and it’s like a hot mess.”

― Kourtney Kardashian

“Us three brothers – me, Janis, and Martins – we made a bet. We all sat down and said we were going to grow our hair out. But after a month or two, they cut their hair. But I was too young to make the decision about whether I would get a haircut, so mine just kept growing. And it was so long that I decided I should start rocking those cornrows.”

― Kristaps Porzingis

“Hair and make-up people don’t get enough credit for what they do. It’s not just making people look good. It’s really creating the character.”

― Kristen Connolly

“I go outside, and I’m wearing a funky T-shirt and my hair is dirty, and people say, ‘What’s wrong with her? She needs to invest in a hairbrush.’”

― Kristen Stewart

“I, personally, like to get dressed and then do my makeup and hair in about five minutes.”

― Kristin Bauer van Straten

“Coconut oil is one of them. I call it miracle oil because you can literally do everything with it. I have it in the kitchen, and then I also have it in the bathroom. It’s great as a hair mask, too; I actually put it on my hair yesterday.”

― Kristin Cavallari

“I make sure I use, like, a hair mask, and I try not to spend too many days at a stretch with product in my hair, which is difficult ’cause then I have to wash it every alternate day – being an actor is not that easy, because everything you use has chemicals.”

― Kriti Kharbanda

“I thoroughly believe that shaving is the best way of hair removal, as it’s the most convenient and hassle free of all the methods.”

― Kriti Sanon

“I was horrified to find out that a startling percentage of women, even in Bengaluru, do not go out or wash their hair during their periods.”

― Kriti Sanon

“It’s sad to be constantly judged for every move you make after your first success. If you wear your hair differently, you have changed.”

― Kriti Sanon

“When I was approached to do a digital show where I will be giving away hair and make-up tips, I instantly got excited because that is something I like to do.”

― Krystle D’Souza

“Being an actor, I have to blow-dry, colour, and use all sorts of products on my hair. The best-ever ‘Pantene Total Damage Care’ range takes care of the damage from the core. The shampoo and conditioner both have been life savers for me and have saved my hair from all the damage it goes through due to the daily styling.”

― Krystle D’Souza

“I oil my hair once a week with warm coconut and almond oil and wash it after an hour of application. The days I don’t shoot, I make sure I don’t even blow dry my hair after a shower. I also use heat protecting serums and leave-in serums before styling.”

― Krystle D’Souza

“In my new IFC comedy game show, ‘Bunk,’ we actually use our intern Patrick as a human timer – giving contestants the time it takes for him to wade through a bag of broken glass for a razor blade, to get gum out of his hair, to pick up every strand from a box of spaghetti I spill on the floor, etc, etc.”

― Kurt Braunohler

“For a long time, I dressed like an idiot. In college, I had a fully shaved head with just two horns. Like, a coxcomb of hair that I would sculpt into two horns. I looked like a crazy person.”

― Kurt Braunohler

“Jensen Ackles has everything I want. He’s in great shape. He’s got a full head of hair. He’s got a square jawline. He’s a big star!”

― Kurt Fuller

“Around ’93, the radio started playing ‘Loser’ by Beck and ‘Cut Your Hair’ by Pavement, and then I got way into Pavement. That was kind of a gateway drug into indie rock. I got all their B-sides, and I got that ‘Hey Drag City’ comp, so I got into all those Drag City bands.”

― Kurt Vile

“No nose hair. Ever. You’d be surprised at all the little twigs sticking out. I just can’t get it. How can you see that and not just want to hack it off?”

― Kyan Douglas

“Bigfoot does not exist because there would be evidence left behind – hair, feces, bones, kills, offspring, a carcass – if it did.”

― Kyle Hill

“I’ve learned that whether it’s with your skin or your hair, less is more. People go and do so much to it, I don’t think that’s good. Too much product is not good, so I think that’s probably the best thing. And not the most expensive thing is the best thing. That’s for sure. I’ve learned that the hard way.”

― Kyle Richards

“I wish I had more hair on my head. Maybe if I sprinkled fertilizer on it, it would grow.”

― Kylie Bax

“I know how influential I am over my fans and followers. I feel like everything I do, my hair color, my makeup, I always start these huge trends, and I don’t even realize what I’m capable of.”

― Kylie Jenner

“Honestly, what I think set everything off is when I cut my hair off when I was 16 and dyed it blue. After that, I just felt so free and wanted to experiment with my look.”

― Kylie Jenner

“I can’t have brown hair for some reason. I don’t think it goes with my skin tone. The second I see it turn brown in the sun, I dye it black – the blacker the better.”

― Kylie Jenner

“My cousin was Ron O’Neal, who was ‘Superfly.’ Films like ‘Shaft’ and ‘Superfly’ were the biggest things out there in the early ’70s. It’s hard to remember just how big they were – how much impact they had on the culture, the music, the fashions, the hair styles.”

― Kym Whitley

“Watching Madonna puffing on a cigar on David Letterman’s show, I thought, ‘Gosh, she’s feeling so India! All she needs is long, black hair and a trip to the Caribbean to burn her skin up.’”

― La India

“I’ve had every hair style imaginable.”

― Lacey Schwimmer

“When their city was occupied by the Gauls, and the Romans, who were besieged in the Capitol, had made military engines from the hair of the women, they dedicated a temple to the Bald Venus.”

― Lactantius

“Hair is about when you’re younger. I am my hair.”

― Lady Gaga

“I can’t bear looking in the mirror – I guess that’s why my hair looks like this.”

― Lance Bass

“A lot of people behind the scenes were telling me that I was going to have to do something with my hair, my weight, all of that stuff.”

― La’Porsha Renae

“My ex-husband didn’t like my singing. He didn’t like my hair. He hated my eyes. Everything. Everything he complimented me on when we first met, he just hated.”

― La’Porsha Renae

“Anyone can be confident with a full head of hair. But a confident bald man – there’s your diamond in the rough.”

― Larry David

“Sometimes I have these fantasies of just moving to a foreign country and coming back with a full head of hair. Or not even come back! Make a new life there with hair… Change my name, just see what happens.”

― Larry David

“I’ve had completely gray hair since, like, 30.”

― Larry Hogan

“When I’m at school, I usually put my hair up. High pony, side pony, or a bun, I like my hair out of my face.”

― Laura Marano

“What I wear is everything – from how I carry my hair to what I’m wearing on my feet. I have to feel comfortable on stage, so I like to wear things that have room. My mood changes a lot, so sometimes I wear 6-inch heels, and other times I’ll perform in bare feet.”

― Laura Mvula

“I bumped into my cousin after she’d shaved her hair very short, and she looked incredible. She seemed so effortless and cool, and I wanted that. And, I’ve had it like that ever since.”

― Laura Mvula

“I’ve never dyed my hair or even gotten highlights. All the products I need for my hair are at the drugstore!”

― Laura Osnes

“I’m actually so low maintenance when it comes to my hair. It’s naturally stick-straight, but I do like to use a curling iron to give my locks some life.”

― Laura Osnes

“It’s nice to actually look done-up, because people see a different side of me, the more girly side. Obviously, I can’t do that with cycling. I can’t go with nice girly hair and full make-up.”

― Laura Trott

“I like to sing in the car with the windows rolled down and hair blowing all over my face.”

― Lauren Alaina

“All the Warner actors were real actors. They started in theater and led very straightforward lives – you never saw entourages around. The MGM girls were the glamour girls, and they always had the makeup and hair people with them and all that.”

― Lauren Bacall

“I think it’s definitely important to look like yourself on a date. You don’t want to look like someone else with too much makeup or too much hair.”

― Lauren Conrad

“I like wearing scarves in my hair because they make me look put together without taking a lot of time.”

― Lauren Conrad

“If you’re meeting someone for the first time after three hours of hair, makeup, and styling, you’ve already set the bar too high.”

― Lauren Graham

“We moved in 8th grade, so 7th grade I was doing okay, and then 8th grade, everything fell apart. I had no fashion sense to speak of. We only had a couple of hair care products back then. We didn’t have all these things to tame your hair. I had glasses; I had braces. I had it all.”

― Lauren Graham

“We’ve done a couple of women’s mags, but we tend to talk about feminism and women in the industry, which I feel more comfortable talking about. It’s a more valuable discussion than, ‘Oh, you’re a girl in a band. What hair conditioner do you use?’ I use hair conditioner, and I like talking about it. But I don’t want that to be the question.”

― Lauren Mayberry

“I have a whole iPod full of exceptionally bad music, truly awful stuff including a disproportionate number of one hit wonders from the early ’80s and lots of hair bands. I find it utterly impossible to love a song until I know every single word, so listening to live music or new bands is pretty much out.”

― Lauren Weisberger

“I’m not dyeing my hair and trying to pretend I’m 40. That’s not going to work for me.”

― Laurence Fishburne

“I am extremely close to my grandma. Growing up, she would always do my hair; she was always the one who would make me chocolate milk or rice when I came home.”

― Laurie Hernandez

“I’m not trying to blow out a camera lens or make the audience’s hair go straight back from my sheer volume, sheer energy level.”

― Laurie Metcalf

“A dream job is to walk right past hair and makeup.”

― Laurie Metcalf

“There’s part of our culture where uniqueness is celebrated and appreciated and another part of our culture where this one way to be – one color hair, one sized breasts, one kind of nose – that’s also front and center.”

― Laurie Simmons

“Male directors always project their own desire of women – how they want a woman to dress, to do her hair. With a woman director, it’s more a projection of herself.”

― Lea Seydoux

“I would love to take more risks – have pink hair – but it doesn’t look right on me.”

― Lea Seydoux

“Male authors always take care to make their heroes at least one inch taller than they are, and considerably more muscular. Just as female authors give their heroines better hair and slimmer thighs.”

― Lee Child

“I didn’t get my hair cut for two movies, and it got a little long. I’m going back to a… not a crew cut. Back to, oh, about a Presbyterian length.”

― Lee Marvin

“I feel lucky that I found my talent, not unlucky that I was born with a disability. When I’m on a horse, I’m more worried about what the riding hat is doing to my hair than what my bent legs and arms are doing. What riding has given me is respect.”

― Lee Pearson

“I always had influences musically with punk, and then growing up, I dyed my hair every color. I did the dip-dye blue, before anybody was dip-dyeing their hair. And streaks of pinks and purples and whatnot.”

― Leigh Lezark

“Hey, our Founding Fathers wore long hair and powdered wigs – I don’t see anybody trying to look like them today, either… But we do look to them as role models.”

― Leigh Steinberg

“In real life I’ve learned to love not wearing any makeup whatsoever, and I’m super low-maintenance when it comes to my hair.”

― Leighton Meester

“I always change my hair, but I don’t like haircuts!”

― Leighton Meester

“I had a bunch of different hair colors. I was experimenting to see what I liked. It started off brown, then I did red, then I got really, really blonde!”

― Leighton Meester

“I always thought we had more in common with punk than with anything else, but we had long hair, so we didn’t fit in that box.”

― Lemmy

“I’m always having to be told to brush my hair.”

― Lena Dunham

“I refresh Twitter as thoughtlessly as some twirl their hair.”

― Lena Dunham

“’Lost Boys’ is one of my all-time faves. I just thought it would be great to be a vampire. I remember this movie called ‘Once Bitten,’ which is about an ’80s sort of power girl who became a vampire and was really, like, sexy. Hair like she was from ‘Dallas,’ shoulder pads, big earrings.”

― Lena Headey

“Sometimes I think I want to get ‘hair and make up’ every day, but that’s just not possible.”

― Leona Lewis

“I hate having my hair cut so I try not to.”

― Leona Lewis

― Leroy Sane

“I, Lesley, I like looking nice. I like doing my hair and wearing makeup and wearing nice clothes. But I don’t care what my characters look like.”

― Lesley Manville

“When I got off ’24,’ pretty soon after that I did a movie that took place in the ’70s, this movie with Jimmy Caan and Gena Rowlands, and I needed to kind of have that ’70s pouffy housewife hair.”

― Leslie Hope

“They say that when a woman wants to end a relationship, she cuts off all of her hair. I’ve done that twice in my marriage but am still married.”

― Leslie Mann

“’Black Panther’ has made me embrace my natural black hair. The representation of natural black hair in the film has made me reflect on myself.”

― Letitia Wright

“I try to shampoo and condition it at least once a week. I do deep conditioners as well and sit underneath the hair dryer and everything.”

― LeToya Luckett

“I don’t use a lot of heat on my hair.”

― LeToya Luckett

“Pincurling is my secret! I wear my hair wavy alot, and so I don’t have to use all that excess heat every day trying to curl it; I just pincurl it.”

― LeToya Luckett

“I’ve seen pretty much all the ‘Peter Pan’s except for one of the further back ones where the boy had curly hair. I can’t remember. I really loved the 2003 version. I really loved that one because that was around the year I was born. That’s quite funny.”

― Levi Miller

“I wear pink on Saturdays for breast cancer, and I wear blue on Sundays. I’m superstitious. At the Evian tournament in 2010, in which I came in second, I wore baby blue on a Sunday. And ever since then, I’ve worn it every Sunday. Puma sponsors me, so I wear all their outfits in bright colors. I wear matching hair ribbons, too.”

― Lexi Thompson

“Because I was crazy and because my parents wanted me out of their hair, they put me in an all-day acting class… so they wouldn’t have to deal with me, probably. And it just so happened there agents auditing the class, and I ended up getting signed.”

― Liana Liberato

“I love going out dancing. There is nothing better than letting your hair down and staying up far too late, is there?”

― Liberty Ross

“People used to always laugh at my hair, stuff like that.”

― Lil Yachty

“I had braids before. They were real long, and they were black, but my mom made me cut them for the McDonald’s job. Then, when I got the job, everybody had long braids and colored hair.”

― Lil Yachty

“I have always liked Taylor Swift – there is just something about her that is very genuine and sweet. She also has naturally curly hair like me, so that’s cool.”

― Lilla Crawford

“I like a pretty, undone look. So I wash my hair every other day so it doesn’t get dried out, and I let it air-dry. If I want soft waves, I’ll braid it first.”

― Lily Aldridge

“When I was a kid, I got a bob because all of the other girls on my soccer team with straight hair had one, and so I wanted one. Now I know girls with thick, curly hair should not get bobs. My hair was like one big circle.”

― Lily Aldridge

“In British culture, redheads get teased at school. But I’ve grown up enough to realize I love my hair.”

― Lily Cole

“As an actor, you gain weight, you lose weight, you change your hair color, and you make changes physically and emotionally to be able to understand the character.”

― Lily Collins

“If truth is beauty, how come no one has their hair done in the library?”

― Lily Tomlin

“I’m the first to poke fun at myself when it comes to the hair. I even ask the audience ‘hands up who had big hair in the 80s?’.”

― Limahl

“Sure, I like my short hair. It also quadrupled my rate. I did get sick of seeing it on everybody, though – every stewardess, every salesclerk, and in every restaurant.”

― Linda Evangelista

“I know that sometimes the chemistry just isn’t there between the model, photographer, hair and make-up. It’s nobody’s fault and you just have to do better next time.”

― Linda Evangelista

“Hair is the greatest thing to experiment with because it’s not permanent. If I didn’t like my colour, I’d just change it.”

― Linda Evangelista

“I love my red hair. It makes me spunkier.”

― Lindsay Lohan

“There are so many things that can go wrong while performing. I’ve had violin strings break; I’ve had pants that were slowly falling down, and I’d have to pull them up in between every song; my hairpiece was falling out, so a big chunk of hair was just flapping around as I danced, and I’ve completely fallen on my butt.”

― Lindsey Stirling

“My crazy training-and-competition schedule leaves very little time to focus on my hair.”

― Lindsey Vonn

“I measure the amount of shows I should do by my hair. If my hair isn’t good for campaigns and editorials, then obviously I am not going to look good.”

― Lindsey Wixson

“Blonde is dumb comedy, red hair is smart, sexy comedy.”

― Lisa Kudrow

“My hair got lighter, and I gradually went blonde. I liked it. Had more fun. But my image of myself in my head is this dark-haired person.”

― Lisa Kudrow

“’Baywatch’ sucks so bad. I didn’t watch it the first time around; I’m sure not going to buy a DVD. But really, you just kind of find out the categories of what’s most foolish about these people. With Hasselhoff, it’s obviously the huge man-tits with chest hair, probably a lot about his crappy acting, obviously the hamburger video – that’s huge.”

― Lisa Lampanelli

“In the end, censoring a comedian’s jokes is on par with censoring ‘Huckleberry Finn.’ Now, I’m not comparing myself to Mark Twain – he had much wavier hair and a slightly thicker mustache. But when you deny an artist the chance to explore his art, you’re forcing your beliefs on him.”

― Lisa Lampanelli

“Mr. Trump, I really can’t comment, because he was my boss on ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ and I just don’t think we should let him be president until he produces evidence that the thing on his head is real. Because he wanted to see Obama’s birth certificate, we should ask for a certificate of real hair.”

― Lisa Lampanelli

“Don’t laugh at a hair joke, Trump.”

― Lisa Lampanelli

“Hair color is the easiest way to change your appearance, but a bad dye job might draw more attention to you.”

― Lisa Lutz

“With a lot of hair and make-up then I’m possibly, remotely attractive. But it’s rare, I don’t think I’m ugly but I’m nothing particularly special. I’m not a yoga and health girl. I don’t exercise that much and I eat crap and smoke and bite my nails.”

― Lisa Marie Presley

“I would wear flamboyant clothes and long hair, and most singers at the time didn’t.”

― Little Richard

“I wash my hair with Pantene every other day unless I have gorgeous hair left over from an event.”

― Liv Tyler

“When I think about fashion and elegance, I imagine a woman from the 1950s, on an airplane, with seamed stockings and a garment belt underneath, a skirt, high heels, and her hair that she’s done the night before, perfectly done eyeliner, lipstick, gloves, perhaps, and all this just to sit on an airplane for a transcontinental flight.”

― Liz Goldwyn

“I spend a lot more time on my wardrobe than my makeup routine and usually have to be told to brush my hair!”

― Liz Goldwyn

“Aging is one of the most visual diseases on the planet and includes things that we all know like wrinkles and grey hair, but also brain atrophy, muscle wasting and organ damage.”

― Liz Parrish

“My video game character is a bit better looking than me, actually. I don’t think he has to worry about his hair getting messed up.”

― Lleyton Hewitt

“I liked to dye my hair as a teenager. I dyed it a lot of different colours: blue, red, pink.”

― Lorelei Linklater

“My mother taught me to wash my hair as little as possible, and to rinse it with Coke before a shoot for a sexy, tousled look.”

― Lou Doillon

“I was such a tomboy. I had absolutely no bosom, and I wore my hair really short – shaved, like a boy.”

― Lou Doillon

“I’m a bit of a contrarian, so I like the idea of going on stage without makeup, without the hair being done, in the jeans and shirt I’ve been wearing all day. At first that was an issue, because I didn’t want to be disrespectful.”

― Lou Doillon

“When you start performing, you realize that you have to separate yourself from the pack. So I would never wear bell-bottoms, which everybody else was wearing. I had short hair – and to see a 21-year-old guy walk onstage without longish hair was, in itself, weird. Every entertainer needs a shtick.”

― Loudon Wainwright III

“When you start your career, you have to figure out a way to separate yourself from the pack. So I went for a kind of preppy, psycho-killer look: I had short hair, grey flannel pants, and a button-down shirt. I think it worked, because nobody else was looking that way at that time.”

― Loudon Wainwright III

“With her high pale brow under her faded brown hair, she was like a rock washed clean by years of her husband’s absences at conventions, dinners, committee meetings or simply at the office.”

― Louis Auchincloss

“Every actor has an obsession with their hair. You can see it on set, and you start to realize it’s completely silly. I can be very obsessed by my hair, but all these hours spent trying to style it are useless, because ultimately, you can’t change your haircut. It’s all the same.”

― Louis Garrel

“I wasn’t making it with the violin because I was playing all of the ‘long hair’ stuff.”

― Louis Prima

“Are you trivialising the sisterhood if you dye your hair or have your eyebrows threaded? I’d say the answer to that is no. But equally, it’s a perfectly valid feminist thing to say there is a certain amount of attention on a woman’s appearance, and I don’t wish that to be the focus or a distraction.”

― Louise Mensch

“It’s funny: I’ve always wanted to grow my hair out ,and I always seem to get a movie right before it’s sort of the right length or right after, and it’s never timed right.”

― Lucas Till

“I dyed my hair this crazy red to bid for attention. It has become a trademark, and I’ve got to keep it this way.”

― Lucille Ball

“I’ve been every hair color under the sun for different projects.”

― Lucy Boynton

“’Negro’ can refer to anyone with dark hair as well as dark skin, and I’ve been used to the word being used in Spanish in this way all my life.”

― Luis Suarez

“I’ve got two cows licks; when I was a kid, all the boys in school used to have curtains, and my hair never used to do that, ever! I always used to try, and I always looked like the geek.”

― Luke Evans

“My hair is certainly not copious, and I keep it short, always – it’s buzzed twice a week.”

― Luke Goss

“I went to high school every single day in an all-male Jesuit school at McQuaid with short hair, no beard, suit jacket, tie.”

― Luke Harper

“When I think of the great artists that I admire, they always had something, whether it be their hair, rings, or whatever.”

― Luke James

“The first time I cut all my hair off was when I was 19. I just got fed up going to the salon every week. I’d had enough! On a whim, it was off. It’s low-maintenance.”

― Lupita Nyong’o

“Before the advent of the white man, black people were doing all kinds of things with their hair. The rejection of kinks and curls did come with the white man.”

― Lupita Nyong’o

“Whoopi Goldberg looked like me, she had hair like mine, she was dark like me. I’d been starved for images of myself. I’d grown up watching a lot of American TV. There was very little Kenyan material, because we had an autocratic ruler who stifled our creative expression.”

― Lupita Nyong’o

“I didn’t love my hair when I was a child. It was lighter than my skin, which made me not love it so much. I was really kind of envious of girls with thicker, longer, more lush hair.”

― Lupita Nyong’o

“It’s amazing, coconut oil. I use it as a moisturizer. I put it in my hair when I want a kind of greasy look. I take off my makeup with it. I put a little bit in my coffee. I have coconut oil with everything.”

― Lykke Li

“It was nice to be in my own country, where I didn’t need a translator or a driver. Where I didn’t need to figure out cultural references or what hijab I needed to wear to cover my hair.”

― Lynsey Addario

“Cinderella obviously got caught up in the hair metal scene, but they were such a blues band. And such a good live band.”

― Lzzy Hale

“When I first came out, I was a film student, and my mom sewed clothes. I was already doing a million things then, whatever it took to survive. If I had to braid someone’s hair to get one pound for my lunch money, that’s what I did.”

― M.I.A.

“I’m really at ease in being me and going all around the world playing music. But I do get a lift once we start. I’m humming stuff in the dressing room and smiling, looking at myself and making sure I don’t have nose hair! But once I get really close to the stage, and the guys are doing the intro thing, I do get a pick-me-up.”

― Maceo Parker

“I don’t have much choice these days in how I have my hair.”

― Mackenzie Crook

“For filming, we have to wear a lot more makeup than we usually would. At night, I have to go home and take off all the makeup and take my hair out from my bun and just get out of the dancewear and everything.”

― Maddie Ziegler

“If it’s the right role, yes, of course, I would shave my head, but I don’t know what role that would be. I’m still very attached to the hair.”

― Madelaine Petsch

“When I was younger, I used to be very afraid of doing anything out there with my makeup because I felt like my hair was such a big, strong piece.”

― Madelaine Petsch

“If I dyed my hair, my mother would actually disown me.”

― Madelaine Petsch

“He also didn’t like a lock of my hair and said that he couldn’t get into the moment without the hair being just right. I quietly knew that he was anxious and that the hairdo wasn’t the real issue. But we all let it go and came back to the scene sometime later.”

― Madeleine Stowe

“I usually go to sleep with wet hair. When I wake up, it either has a really pretty wave, or I look like a poodle.”

― Madison Beer

“I take really good care of my hair.”

― Madison Beer

“My physical transformations – like changing my hair – are usually a reflection of what’s inspiring me at the moment.”

― Madonna Ciccone

“When I was in grade school in L.A., I really loved Cyndi Lauper. I did everything I could to look like her. I had wild outfits and always wore different coloured socks. I wore loads of ribbons in my hair and let them fall in my eyes.”

― Maggie Gyllenhaal

“Normally, I’m a grumpy old man – whenever I read about celebrity, I start to grind my teeth and pull my hair; it seems synonymous with idiocy.”

― Mal Peet

“Schoolkids – black and white – would call me Kunta Kinte as a cuss. If ever my hair was particularly messy, if ever I looked scruffy at school, I would be called Kunta Kinte. My first impression was that it was bad to be African and bad to be associated with him.”

― Malachi Kirby

“People assume when my hair is long that I am a lot cooler than I actually am. I am not opposed to this misconception, by the way, but it is a misconception.”

― Malcolm Gladwell

“My wife has an all-natural skin and hair product company. I use all of her products for my beard. She has a beard oil and a beard wash. So that is what I use.”

― Malcolm Jenkins

“In ’87, I was about 9 years old, and so at that point I was wearing, like, fluorescent green T-shirts and acid-wash jeans and leg warmers, and my hair was in a ponytail with a scrunchie and I had the teased bangs that were up in a rainbow shape. It was crazy.”

― Malin Akerman

“People do think you’re more intelligent if you have dark hair. But my husband definitely prefers me as a blonde.”

― Malin Akerman

“My hair is naturally blond and thin, so I like to give it some texture. Sexy, dirty bedhead is good for blonds.”

― Malin Akerman

“Long hair, for me, is actually less maintenance. I went through a phase when I was kid where I wanted a pixie cut. At the time I thought it looked awesome, but I look back and I looked like such a dork! When I have short hair, I feel like I have to blow dry it, or it doesn’t sit properly.”

― Mallory Jansen

“My hair’s naturally dirty-dishwater light brown. Ugly.”

― Mandy Moore

“I think what is magic about black-girl hair is, at its basic level, it’s just resilient. It can go from straight to curly in the same day. It’s just transformative. When you don’t feel so strong, the hair can be a sign of empowerment.”

― Mara Brock Akil

“Great CEOs are not just born with shiny hair and a tie.”

― Marc Andreessen

“No one ever said ‘no’ to me about anything. No one ever told me anything was wrong. Never. No one ever said, ‘You can’t be a fashion designer.’ No one ever said, ‘You’re a boy and you can’t take tap-dancing lessons.’ No one ever said, ‘You’re a boy and you can’t have long hair.’”

― Marc Jacobs

“I love the entire ritual of getting dressed. When we do a fashion show, we try to send out a message; we couldn’t do that without the hair and makeup. The whole is equal to the sum of its parts.”

― Marc Jacobs

“I’ve never thought of acting as rocket science – you put on the costume, get your hair cut, and that’s it, really.”

― Marc Warren

“To the extent that someone goes out to criticize another woman about hair, makeup, silliness like that – unless you’re talking about a makeup artist or something, really stop and think about what you’re doing and why you’re doing it.”

― Marcia Clark

“It’s one thing to evaluate a woman’s work. it’s another thing to say, ‘Your hair was this; your makeup was that.’”

― Marcia Clark

“I have straight hair. If I don’t blow it out, it’s not good.”

― Marcia Clark

“I didn’t understand why people cared about my hair or my makeup or my clothing. It was like, ‘I’m a prosecutor. I’m not a model. I’m not an actress.’”

― Marcia Clark

“I had the perm because I wanted wash-and-wear hair. I didn’t want to be bothered with it.”

― Marcia Clark

“With the red hair, you get the white skin; it’s a package deal. The cons are that you never look particularly attractive on the beach. The pros are in a softly lit room, you look pretty.”

― Marcia Cross

“Oh, I love ladies in hats! One rule of restaurants: never take a hat from a lady; wait for her to offer you the hat because she might not want to take it off – she might not have had time to do her hair properly.”

― Marco Pierre White

“It is foolish to tear one’s hair in grief, as though sorrow would be made less by baldness.”

― Marcus Tullius Cicero

“I just love when girls rock short hair, because they can’t hide behind anything. I feel more empowered with short hair.”

― Maren Morris

― Mariacarla Boscono

“I grew up with a saying: ‘It doesn’t matter what you wear or where you go, but your hair always has to be brushed.’ So in Italy, we come from that kind of culture – where how you present yourself is important.”

― Mariah Carey

“Prejudice is like a hair across your cheek. You can’t see it, you can’t find it with your fingers, but you keep brushing at it because the feel of it is irritating.”

“When Reg died and we first looked into getting a new dog, I was adamant we should pick up a mongrel from an animal-rescue shelter. It’s not only that they’re usually healthier and have better temperaments, they also fit with my world view – I prefer a ballpoint to a fountain pen, a barber to a hair stylist, and camping over glamping.”

― Mark Barrowcliffe

― Mark de Jonge

“Grooming-wise, it is now a constant battle as I progressively turn into my father. I have to keep on top of ear and nose hair – things you never believe will happen to you. Suddenly I have a shaving brush in my ear and I don’t know where it’s come from, and the more hair I take the out, the more it surges back.”

― Mark Gatiss

― Mark Gatiss

“I lost my hair mixing a substance called white gunpowder on the kitchen table.”

― Mark Romanek

“When I decided to crop what was left of my hair, I thought, ‘It’s all over. I’m never going to work again: it’s basket weaving me for me from now on.’ But what actually happens is your casting changes: you suddenly start to get a lot of villains and coppers and soldiers and even the odd sensitive vicar – you become institutionalised.”

“I had an investor who said to me he’d keep his money with me as long as I didn’t have a girlfriend and I didn’t start combing my hair.”

― Martin Shkreli

“I never want to get a job because I’m female. I want to get it because I earned it and I deserve it… Whether my hair is going to be blue or purple, people should be judged on how well they do the job and deliver results and whether they do it the right way. That’s how I like to be judged; most people are like that.”

― Mary Barra

“Grey is my hair colour. I really can’t see why I should change it.”

― Mary H.K. Choi

“I suspect that living 24/7 in workout attire is the clothing version of the messy topknot. We all know that your hair is dirty, or too long, or too frizzy, or your roots have grown out, but we are all going to accept it as fabulous because that’s the deal.”

― Mary H.K. Choi

“For the hair, a few French hairpins and a tortoiseshell clip will dress up any bun!”

“Vidal Sassoon changed hair forever.”

― Mary Quant

“Chew on this: Human teeth can detect a grain of sand or grit 10 microns in diameter. A micron is 1/25,000 of an inch. If you shrank a Coke can until it was the diameter of a human hair, the letter O in the product name would be about 10 microns across.”

― Mary Roach

“I guess you should approach the roles differently when they’re actual people who have been, this is the difference. Getting the accent exact, or the hair exact is less important in a situation like this.”

― Mary Stuart Masterson

“When I do a voiceover now, there are always a few people I’ve borrowed bits off, whether it’s their hats or facial hair, who’ll say: ‘That’s so funny; it’s obviously based on this guy.’ You think, ‘It ain’t: it’s you.’ Actors never think characters are based on them.”

― Matthew Rees

“As for waxing, I’ve never waxed in my life and I never would. I’m extremely Welsh, so I draw the line at removing body hair.”

“I worked with AXE Hair to do a promo shoot for the ESPYs and ESPN – it’s all about having girl-approved hair. They have a newer product out there with the hair stuff – shampoo, conditioner and all the styling products that they have.”

― Matthew Stafford

“Most days, I’ll wear lipstick. It’s always been a thing for me – my mom has a lot of them, and I’d always use hers. Eventually, I started buying my own because my mom has lighter hair and lighter skin, so we don’t always look good in the same colors.”

― Maude Apatow

“When a bully pulls your hair, you punch him in the face.”

― Max Holloway

“The most important thing I can tell you about aging is this: If you really feel that you want to have an off-the-shoulder blouse and some big beads and thong sandals and a dirndl skirt and a magnolia in your hair, do it. Even if you’re wrinkled.”

― Maya Angelou

“When I write, I tend to twist my hair. Something for my small mind to do, I guess.”

― Maya Angelou

― Maya Angelou

“Looking back, letting my hair go natural was an amazing decision because I started getting major ad campaigns. I also signed with agencies in Europe and travelled to many different cities, which I loved. People would stop me in the street and say they loved my hair!”

― Maye Musk

“I don’t dye my hair. It’s so fabulous. I had brown hair for so long. I was always getting my roots done. Sometimes I did it myself because I couldn’t afford to go to a hair salon. When I turned 60, I decided to see what color I am underneath. I started dyeing my hair a very light blond and then I let it grow out. I cut it very short.”

― Maye Musk

“At 15, I was modeling. I had to do my own hair and makeup. I also made my own clothes because I grew up in South Africa, where fashion was six months behind because of the seasons.”

― Maye Musk

“The beehives from the ’60s were gorgeous. The big hair from the ’80s wasn’t.”

― Maye Musk

“I’ll go on ’60 Minutes,’ and whereas other parents would be like, ‘You did a great job. I’m so proud of you,’ my mother will be like, ‘Your hair – it was not nice.’”

― Maysoon Zayid

“Prince was outside his dressing room, shaking one of those little Easter egg maracas. His hair was straightened to a soft wave; his eyelashes were unfairly lovely. He smelled like the most expensive shelf in the Sephora perfume aisle. This man wearing eyeliner, heels and ladies’ perfume somehow managed to be more masculine than the burly bodyguard.”

― Mayte Garcia

“The beauty of having short hair is that I actually can wash and style it at home!”

― Meagan Good

― Meat Loaf

“Even before I came out, looking at me, I’ve probably looked a little gay. I had short hair, and, you know, it wasn’t a huge surprise to people. But some athletes have this image to uphold and may feel like sponsors won’t want them if they’re gay.”

― Megan Rapinoe

“I’m totally obsessed with Tilda Swinton. She has this strange, beautiful sexiness about her. I love everything she does. And I love her hair. It was a little bit of an inspiration for mine.”

― Megan Rapinoe

“The first person is a tradition I relate to and that I use; historically, it’s been the voice I work in. But the hair on the back of my neck stands up when I’m referred to as a ‘confessional’ writer.”

― Meghan Daum

“There is nothing like a hair flip!”

― Meghan Markle

“By forbidding Jews to destroy their hair, the Bible warns them away from seeking the siren song of eternal youth. By encouraging Jews to grow beards, it reminds them that they will not be young forever, that they must prepare the ground for those who come after, just as their fathers did for them.”

― Meir Soloveichik

“When I was 16, I was watching ‘101 Dalmatians,’ and my mom never let me bleach my hair, so I told her I was going to dye my hair like Cruella De Vil; she didn’t believe me. I came home with my hair like this, and she didn’t talk to me for, like, a week. It was really hilarious.”

― Melanie Martinez

“To be completely stripped bare of any image power or my hair. To step onstage and get the response that I got blew any problems I had about self-image out the door.”

― Melissa Joan Hart

“In my 20s, I used to cry about why I wasn’t thinner or prettier, but I want to add that I also used to cry about things like, ‘I wish my hair would grow faster. I wish I had different shoes…’ I was an idiot… It’s a decade of tears.”

― Melissa McCarthy

“I wore white kabuki makeup, had blue-black hair. At one point, I shaved an inch and a half around my hairline and continued the white makeup up so it made my head look slightly deformed. I thought it was hilarious.”

― Melissa McCarthy

“In a lot of comedies, they kind of take all the problems away from the women. They give her great clothes, great hair; she almost always owns an artisanal shop, like a cheese shop in Manhattan.”

― Melissa Rauch

“It is not white hair that engenders wisdom.”

― Mia Goth

“I think it’s important to change your hair up once in a while – not to always remain the same.”

― Mia Goth

“My problem was that I was blond. There were no heroes with blond hair. Robert Taylor and Henry Fonda, they all had dark hair. The only one I found was Van Johnson, who wasn’t too cool. He was a nice, homely American boy. So I created my own image. It worked.”

― Michael Caine

“When you see a fly flitting around your hair or your potato salad, you might see an annoyance. But in my lab, you really see a marvelous machine: arguably the most sophisticated flying device on the planet.”

― Michael Fassbender

― Michael J. Fox

“I don’t mind individuality in a team. In fact, I encourage it. I don’t care if you have green hair, white boots, or are full of opinions. All I ask if that you are never above the team.”

― Michael Laudrup

“We should be licensing everybody with a gun. I have to have a license for my dog. I have to have a license for my car. If you’re going to do my hair later you have to have a license… We don’t require a license to own a firearm?”

― Michael Moore

“Roja Dove – who, at 58, is a stock-straight six feet and handsome with lantern jaw, blue eyes, and impeccably combed silvering hair on the sides of an otherwise tanned bald head – may possess the finest nose in the world.”

― Michael Paterniti

“A man can do a television interview and roll out of bed 15 minutes before; it’s just not the same for a woman. A woman has to pay attention to her hair, makeup, clothing, and jewelry choices.”

― Michele Bachmann

“I love hair, I love make up, I love fashion, and I love throwing the shot put.”

― Michelle Carter

“Silk scarves are my thing. I tie them to my handbag or thread them through belt loops or wear them in my hair. Never round my neck, though.”

― Michelle Phan

“I straighten my hair very few times throughout the year, and it’s only in the cold winter months because it’s the only time my hair will stay straight. If there is, like, a tiny bit of humidity in the air, it’s curly again.”

― Michelle Wolf

“I don’t like cutting my hair. I did that once, and my mum thought I was a boy.”

― Michelle Yeoh

“I’ve been wanting to be sponsored by some kind of hair product for a long time. I have a lot of hair, and it goes through a lot in my training camps anyways, so having some kind of great hair sponsor would probably be awesome for me. I’m kind of hard on my hair, but I think I have nice hair.”

“When it comes to culture, I’m sort of like Nostradamus if he’d been a handsome, witty minor celebrity with a great head of hair instead of a crusty old dude from the olden days.”

― Milo Yiannopoulos

“To the image of the characters, I do change my appearance. For example, I gain weight and I lose weight sometimes, and I grow my hair and cut it. Acting is all about physical expression, so I need to change my appearance for all the characters.”

― Mithila Palkar

“To protect my hair from breaking, I never comb my hair when it’s wet.”

― Mithila Palkar

“I defend a woman’s right to cover her hair if she chooses, but the face is central to human interaction, and so the ideologues who promote its covering are simply misogynists.”

“I’ve had watermelon hair where I had pink with green tips. From the age of 13 to about 19 or 20, I never had my real hair color.”

― Natalia Tena

“It’s fascinating how much of our sense of attractiveness and feminine identity is bound up in our hair.”

― Natalie Dormer

“Cutting one side of your head for a few months is not a big deal compared with what other people have to deal with in the world. Plus, hair grows back.”

― Natalie Dormer

“My party trick is that I can get ready to go to the party really quickly. I’m actually a woman that can have a shower, dry and style her hair, do her make-up and get dressed in under an hour.”

― Natalie Dormer

“Women have a lot of… attitudes enforced in us about our sense of attractiveness being bound up in long, flowing, Hollywood kind of hair.”

― Natalie Maines

“I don’t get manicures, pedicures. I don’t get my hair done as often as I should.”

― Natalie Massenet

“I have crazy eyebrows, so it’s crucial to tame them. Just like your hair, they set off your features.”

― Natalie Morales

“I was, like, a total cliched ’80s child. I had Barbies, obviously, as well as My Little Ponies and Cabbage Patch Kids, but I used to destroy them. I used to draw all over their faces and cut off their hair.”

― Natalie Portman

“The thing about curly hair is that it’s a toss-up. Some days you can let it air dry and it’s better than a hair-do, but some days you just look like a sloppy person. I’m really resistant to a trim. I only do it when it gets hard to brush out in the shower, then I’ll submit, begrudgingly.”

― Natasha Lyonne

“My hair is such a statement that it’s like a neon sign asking for trouble.”

― Natasha Lyonne

― Neil Cavuto

“If I know I am going out in the evening, I’ll save my shower till I am about to get ready, so I’m pristine. I’m not one for moisturisers and toners; the furthest I go is shampoo and conditioner and a bit of hair gel.”

― Neil Morrissey

“I went to a Turkish hairdresser, and they burned the hair off my ears with a lit taper. They just put the burning candle near your ears and you hear the hair being burned away. And the smell – urggh!”

― Neil Morrissey

“Everyone in Sweden has great hair and teeth and is clean-cut and organised.”

― Neneh Cherry

“Even when I go out to the ring, yes, I am the big, bad heater monster, but I’m out there showing young girls that I can still be athletic just because I’m a big, bad heater. I can still go out there and cut promos like the other pretty girls and wear my hair down and put makeup on and do everything that they say that you can’t.”

― Nia Jax

“I really take pride in doing my own make-up all the time, which takes me about 40 minutes, and my hair takes another 15 to 20 minutes. Putting on my gear is probably another 15 minutes, so all in all, I don’t think an hour and a half is too bad!”

― Nia Jax

“As an actor, it’s more interesting to play a nerd than anything else. It’s a lot more fun – you don’t worry about ‘what’s my hair like?’ in the morning or ‘which is my great angle?’”

― Nicholas Brendon

“Actors will change their face, will change their hair, will change their voice, will disappear into the role. A movie star doesn’t disappear.”

― Nicholas Meyer

“The hair on this melon, there’s nothing special going on there – trust me – other than a bit of Head and Shoulders, of course. It’s a 100 percent bog-standard do.”

― Nick Cummins

“I would be psyched to get a phone call from Al Sharpton. I need to find out who does his hair. It’s beautiful. It’s a gorgeous mane.”

― Nick Wooster

“I went through a Billy Idol phase. I had white hair when Peter Rizzo hired me at Barneys.”

― Nick Wooster

“I’ve always been intrigued by color and by interesting hair. I was one of those weird little girls doing my own hair at the age of 9. I was, like, getting weird gels and new brushes and cornrow holders. I would tweak and perm at the age of 13.”

― Nicki Minaj

“When I was a kid I had this funny blonde hair and everyone called me ‘Chick’ because I looked like Tweety Bird.”

― Nicky Hilton

“When I was six, I entered a talent contest. I dyed my hair blond, had a chainsaw and pretended I was Eminem. The old folk weren’t expecting that.”

― Nico Mirallegro

“Literally every time I’m on camera, as well as there being commentary on what I’ve said, there’ll be commentary on what my hair looked like, what I wear. Often it’s written in the most hideous and quite cruel way.”

― Nicola Sturgeon

“My make-up call as Cassie on ‘Unforgotten’ is 45 minutes, and on ‘The Split’, it’s considerably longer. They have to do your hair and your make-up. On ‘Unforgotten,’ I’m in and out, and I don’t have to worry about how I sit for the whole day so as not to crease the clothes.”

― Nicola Walker

“I enjoy using coconut oil – not only for my skin and hair, but I’ll digest it.”

― Nicole Ari Parker

“Hair is an issue for most women, and after washing, blow-drying, flat-ironing, curling, braiding, twisting and spending the time and money on it, who wants to mess it up by sweating and having to do it all over again?”

― Nicole Ari Parker

“I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again because you can’t say it enough: Your skin is beautiful – dark, light, in the middle, whatever. Brown is beautiful. Your hair is beautiful. If you wear a weave, it’s beautiful. If you choose to be natural, that’s beautiful. Also, you are enough.”

― Nicole Byer

“One guy wanted an outline of my foot. Another guy wanted locks of my hair.”

― Nicole Eggert

“I’m a director, but I gotta have the hair, the makeup and the heels. My mother would be appalled if I didn’t dress up.”

― Nicole Holofcener

“I’m being photographed, worrying about my hair – and yet here I am, I’ve directed a feature film, why do I care about the way I look? Who cares? Does Tim Burton care? Does Joel Coen?”

― Nicole Holofcener

“Since I have fair skin, I have to stay out of the sun. I can’t stand the sun. I dyed my hair red for a while during the 1990s but I’m actually a natural blonde.”

― Nicole Kidman

“There was this thing written that I had gone into a candle store, and my hair went up in flames because of all the hair spray. First of all, I never have hair spray in my hair, and I’ve never even heard of this store, and my hair has never been burned.”

― Nicollette Sheridan

“I recently finished a job, an HBO movie ‘Getting On,’ a very dark comedy. It comes from a British series of the same name. In this role I have no hair, no make up and no nails. I play a very small role; she is not over the top and sassy.”

― Niecy Nash

“For guys, growing older is fine. Gray hair and wrinkles aren’t considered a bad thing.”

― Nigel Barker

“My daughter’s first sentence was, ‘Dada no hair.’ And I was, like, ‘No Jasmine, Dada does have hair, Dada just shaves his head.’”

― Nigel Barker

“I once died my hair blonde, and it looked like an orangey-red carrot top. It was the ’80s, and I was trying to look like George Michael. At the time, the ladies loved it, and I loved it too!”

― Nigel Barker

“We’ve sweated and torn out our hair trying to reconstruct our chosen lives, to fashion them like literary sculptures, at once monumental and yet human. We’ve applied all of our intelligence, our empathy, our critical faculties, our compassion – and we think, in our delusion, that it’s still 1960, and our work is going to get noticed.”

― Nigel Hamilton

“There is a major turning point in life when you have to decide: shall I grow old gracefully or shall I try everything to stem the tide? For me, that point came in 2001, when I stopped dyeing my hair.”

― Nik Kershaw

“I use Palmers Coconut Oil for my skin. My hair routine is thorough: I hot-oil my hair every two Sundays after games, top it up with coconut oil every third day, and deep condition my hair every two days.”

― Nikita Parris

“Coconut oil mixed with olive oil is what I put on my body every day; I put rose hip oil on my face. If my hair feels dry, instead of going and buying something filled with chemicals, I put egg whites or avocados or mayonnaise in my hair. I leave it on there for an hour or two and I wash it out.”

― Nikki Reed

“Junior high is so much worse than high school because at least in high school different is more accepted, celebrated actually: all the girls with blue hair and gothic Hello Kitty backpacks.”

― Nikki Reed

“Polynesian women are known for their long hair, glowing skin, and thick nails. And that comes from the local diet, which is mostly plant based with a little bit of fish and a lot of natural fats and oils.”

― Nikki Reed

“Who doesn’t want that salty beach hair?”

― Nina Agdal

― Nina Agdal

“When I do my own hair, I love Oribe Texture spray and Redken dry shampoo whenever I’m in a rush. It gives it texture and makes it look clean!”

― Nina Agdal

― Nina Hagen

“I’ve had every colour hair you can think of.”

― Noah Cyrus

“I don’t think I’m egotistical, and I know what my limits are: I’m a black guy who’s probably losing his hair. But I’m happy to play roles that I’m given, and I’m happy to play roles that I write.”

― Noel Clarke

“Over the years, I’ve trained my hair to do what I say, and it’s usually well behaved. I often reward my hair with special treats when it pleases me.”

― Noel Fielding

“Everybody was starting to grow long hair and wear pink suits and purple glasses and stuff and then, I suppose, some people thought we were crazy, but we weren’t really crazy because we’re all still here!”

“I love buying hair clips.”

― Nushrat Bharucha

“I have superfine, superoily hair, so my struggle is always trying to get the volume I want. I end up not doing much with it ever.”

― Odette Annable

“I was missing the main weight-bearing bone in both legs. And the left leg, I didn’t have a full knee. It was a floating knee. I had six toes. My hands were webbed, and I also have one kidney. I don’t have a full bicep on my right side. Thank God my hair didn’t get ruined.”

― Oksana Masters

“I like to keep my hair and makeup routines easy and simple on race days.”

― Oksana Masters

“The realization that I’m never going to run again, the feeling through my hair when you run… you’re still a kid. You still have so much life to live.”

― Oksana Masters

“My hair is super fine, so I love using Batiste Dry Shampoo to give it volume after I shower and dry my hair. It also gives me extra body and texture for when I choose to wear my hair in a French braid.”

― Oksana Masters

“Wembley was crazy stuff. The songs, the noise… best fans ever. My hair was up all the way.”

― Oleksandr Usyk

― Olivia Holt

“I feel naked without jewelry. If I’m having a bad hair day, I pick something from my huge collection of hats.”

― Olivia Thirlby

― Olivia Thirlby

“I used to experiment all the time with my hair color.”

― Olivia Wilde

“I remember walking into drugstores when I was younger and seeing all the hair color boxes on the shelves and just being so in awe. Having the control to dye your hair and change your look is such a part of self-expression.”

― Olivia Wilde

“I shaved the back of my head once and did the asymmetrical hair.”

― Olivia Wilde

“A hair divides what is false and true.”

― Omar Khayyam

“The ’60s look wasn’t something I consciously chose, but in my late teens, I found myself styling my hair in a retro way and liking clothes – the shapes and silhouettes – that were from that era. They just reflected who I was.”

― Ophelia Lovibond

“I had a really good time in New Orleans, although I had some very tragic times in Baton Rouge. Some guys beat me up and threw my horn away. ‘Cause I had a beard, then, and long hair like the Beatles.”

― Ornette Coleman

“When I was a young actor in Vienna, already my hair was falling out at a rapid rate. I went to a doctor, who said hair was like grass: if you mow it, then it grows back stronger. So I went to Brittany, where nobody knew me, and I shaved my head. When it grew back – only the fringes!”

― Otto Preminger

“There is only one cure for gray hair. It was invented by a Frenchman. It is called the guillotine.”

― P. G. Wodehouse

“I’m too tough and sensitive to have to have some pubescent twerp with his mom’s earring in his tongue, who combs his hair with Redi-Whip and has an Ani DiFranco tattoo on his shin, come show me how a computer works.”

― P. J. O’Rourke

“My hair was so much a part of my personality and all my photo shoots. I hid behind my hair. And then, I just decided I was okay with myself. To have short hair and really show my face is even more revealing than anything. It’s a statement – not to everyone else, more to myself. I’m just ready to get out from behind my hair and be myself.”

― Pamela Anderson

“I feel… sexier, I think, with short hair. I feel like an alien!”

― Pamela Anderson

“It’s very liberating to cut your hair.”

― Pamela Anderson

“I was getting a little bored with my hair. It’s kind of a symbolic thing, just getting rid of the past, moving forward. It’s amazing what a reaction you get when you cut your hair.”

― Pamela Anderson

“I only became interested in clothes when I was in my mid-teens. I’d do things like spike my hair and put on a nice shirt, but I’d hardly call myself fashion-conscious. I just don’t have the energy.”

― Paolo Nutini

“I don’t go to the spa or get my hair done enough. I don’t go to the gym enough. But I do take five, six weeks’ vacation; the industry does.”

― Pat McGrath

“’Sister Act’ was my first audition out of school. I was 21 and cast as the understudy. It was non-Equity, so I lived in L.A. on $300 a week. I did that for a month and then came to New York to do a couple of gigs, including ‘Hair’ in the park, before going to London with ‘Sister Act,’ where I played the lead.”

― Patina Miller

“I have years of saying ideas that are not listened to. Then, weeks after, of producers finding out that I was right when some other guy comes in and says it. Sometimes I just tell my idea to my editor or to some other guy with maybe gray hair to share it, and then it’s brilliant!”

― Patricia Riggen

“When I go down the ice, I feel it, the wind in the side of my hair, and then I got the party in the back.”

― Patrick Kane

“I am not the archetypal leading man. This is mainly for one reason: as you may have noticed, I have no hair.”

― Patrick Stewart

“When I was a child, our summer days were spent swimming; chlorine in my hair was like perfume to me.”

― Patti Davis

“To me, Ann Romney sounds like a better candidate than her husband. She put her MS into remission through horseback riding, alternative therapies, and a healthy diet. She knows how to pace herself. She has a sense of humor and an innate honesty, and her hair moves in the wind. Maybe she should run.”

― Patti Davis

“I did feel funny about being fair and having red hair and freckles. I did not like that because I grew up in a neighbourhood where no one had red hair. I felt very conspicuous but not in a nice way.”

― Patti Scialfa

“Since I was a child, I hated having to deal with my hair. I hated having to change my clothes. As a kid, I had a sailor shirt and the same old corduroy pants, and that’s what I wanted to wear everyday.”

― Patti Smith

“It’s not that I have compromised or anything, but it’s always been important to me to take good care of myself and be a good example. I’m not much a role model in terms of hair care, though.”

― Patti Smith

“I’ve always looked the same. Since I was a child, I hated having to deal with my hair. I hated having to change my clothes. As a kid, I had a sailor shirt and the same old corduroy pants, and that’s what I wanted to wear everyday.”

― Patti Smith

“The thing I’ve always liked about performing is that I decide what I want to wear, whether I want to comb my hair.”

― Patti Smith

“The rich are different. Their wants are very high maintenance. They’ll pick eye color and hair color, all the way down to what she does for a living, what school she went to. Their list can be extremely long. But at the end of the day, dating is dating, because they’re human beings.”

― Patti Stanger

“I think Charles Manson was a hair’s breath away from just being a terrorist. He wanted to start a war, too.”

― Patty Hearst

“I know that I’m carrying a bit of a weight on my shoulders of what I do represents more than just myself as a director. I wish that wasn’t true, but it is. It makes me think about doing work that I believe in and that I believe I can do well, probably even a hair more than I would otherwise.”

― Patty Jenkins

“I don’t like to spend a lot of money on haircuts: I’ll sometimes grow my hair and get an acting job and get them to cut it for free. I think for a lady, though, it’s okay to spend a lot on a haircut.”

― Paul Dano

“When I’m not acting, I like to go home and be really normal. So I usually grow out my hair until I get the next part.”

― Paul Dano

“I may demonstrate the various stages of making a loaf on stage, but they don’t end up in the final product I lift out of the oven at the end. If it were real food preparation, I’d wear a hair net, a hat, and rubber gloves – not a pretty sight.”

― Paul Hollywood

“If your hair is relaxed, white people are relaxed. If your hair is nappy, they’re not happy.”

― Paul Mooney

“Puberty hit me pretty hard. All of a sudden, I woke up, and I had really curly hair.”

― Paul Rudd

“You can make a lot of mistakes with hair because it grows back.”

― Paul Rudd

“Behind every small business, there’s a story worth knowing. All the corner shops in our towns and cities, the restaurants, cleaners, gyms, hair salons, hardware stores – these didn’t come out of nowhere.”

― Paul Ryan

“It’s true that ‘Lords of the Sith’ has a lesbian character. Her orientation is a characteristic in the same way as is her brunette hair. It just fit with my conception of her.”

― Paul S. Kemp

“I pack a toothbrush, toothpaste, and deodorant. That’s it. I don’t have the time or patience for anything else. I’m a natural kind of guy. I don’t style my hair – never learned how.”

― Paul Walker

“I’m Brian a lot more than I’m Paul Walker, which is awesome. When I hear, ‘Hey Paul Walker!’ my hair stands up on the back of my neck. It’s uncomfortable. But when I hear, ‘It’s Brian!’ it’s cool. I like Brian.”

― Paul Walker

“Feminists were psyched that I had armpit hair.”

― Paula Cole

“I wash my hair once a week. If it gets stinky in between, I just dry-shampoo it.”

― Paulina Porizkova

“Kevin Costner has feathers in his hair and feathers in his head. The Indians should have called him ‘Plays with Camera.’”

― Pauline Kael

“I’m past 75, I still walk, and I don’t dye my hair blond, and I don’t touch it up.”

― Pauline Trigere

“I look back at my elementary or high school pictures and I always had gel in my hair and a gold chain that I would wear outside my shirt. That’s how I was born and raised as an Italian male, and I always considered myself a Guido, anyway.”

― Pauly D

“If I exercise once or twice a day on vacation and don’t want to wash my hair too often. I pack a lot of dry shampoo, like Amika’s.”

― Payal Kadakia

“I love going to the hair salon. I’m Spanish. I think it’s more of a Latina thing to go to the hair salon.”

― Paz de la Huerta

“No one knows me with dark hair.”

― Peggy Lipton

“I don’t know why, but women in a hair salon share their deepest secrets.”

― Penelope Cruz

“My parents owned a hair salon, so I learned a few tricks there. I can cut people’s hair – if they let me.”

― Penelope Cruz

“My hair is way, way long. I’ve hitchhiked across the country a zillion times. I’ve ridden in every car. I was never a hippie. It takes more than long hair.”

― Penn Jillette

“Our trademark asymmetrical hairstyle came about by accident. My sister was trying to get her beautician’s licence, and I was her guinea pig. She permed my hair and didn’t wash out one of the sides properly, so the whole right side of my hair was eaten out. After she washed it, I was half bald.”

― Pepa

“I was a loudmouth rock star when I was still in college. Purple hair this week, green hair next week, blond hair the week after. I was doing that fashion before it was really cool.”

― Pepa

“I thought I was very pretty without hair. Naked, more honest somehow. No glamor, just bald old me. I seldom wore wigs or hats. But some people must have thought I was an exhibitionist or a religious fanatic.”

― Persis Khambatta

“Basically, they had asked me if I would shave my head or wear a bald cap. I said look, if you are doing a series for five years I would want to shave my hair because I would go bald with all the gum and glue from the bald cap.”

― Persis Khambatta

“If you don’t wash your hair, it cleans itself. That applies to the human body as well.”

― Pete Doherty

“Here’s the thing about hair; I think most people think that I have Lego hair, like I can just take it on and off in one piece, and that’s not quite the case – although pretty close.”

― Pete Wentz

“I think hair is just, like, the most important thing about you.”

― Pete Wentz

― Peter Crouch

“I made my Broadway debut in the revival of Hair and followed it up with the bus and truck tour of Grease.”

― Peter Gallagher

“It’s been fascinating watching all those pictures of me with a lot more hair Jeremy, and looking very young. And we’ve all got things we’ve said, twenty, thirty years ago, indeed the whole world has changed since then.”

― Peter Hain

“Never having played Chess before, it was most interesting to be playing the game with no pieces in front of me. But I still knew how to stroke my hair when I won.”

― Peter Mayhew

“People talk about the hair dryer and all this with Sir Alex Ferguson. What was really great about him, whatever happened in a game, he would spend whatever minutes it took him to get this out of this system and say whatever needed to be said. Once he said, ‘Get your bath,’ that was it. We knew that it would never return.”

― Peter Schmeichel

“To see someone 70 years old with dyed black hair, you’re like, ‘Hmmm, I dunno. Is that a wrinkled teenager? What is that?’ So at some point, I’m going to have to stop doing this. It’s gonna look ridiculous. I don’t wanna look like Elvis Presley at 60 years old.”

― Peter Steele

“The rhetoric on the Hill is getting very heated and it’s getting quite dangerous. The gun is at the head of the American economy and Congress is holding it and its got a hair trigger. We’ve got to pay our bills.”

― Peter Welch

“By the 1980s, practically no one under 60 in the real civilian world wore hats for anything except weddings, funerals or Ascot. Hats had been in competition with hair, and hair had won. Thirty years before that, Brits of all classes and ages wore hats all the time.”

― Peter York

“My hair has a natural, beachy wave, so I’m really lucky.”

― Peyton List

“My hair holds curls so well, and I don’t wash it every day because it doesn’t need it.”

― Peyton List

“I guess, to tell you the truth, I’ve never had much of a desire to grow facial hair. I think I’ve managed to play quarterback just fine without a mustache.”

― Peyton Manning

“We try to stay as open-minded about casting as possible. When you’re getting things down on paper, you might even avoid writing down a name, let alone if they have blonde hair or this or that, to stop.”

― Phil Lord

“When I started, there was only one other girl that I could name that was even close to my shade. I didn’t understand why there weren’t more black plus-size models with darker skin tones. It feels like the final frontier of beauty is to be black, to be plus, to have natural hair.”

― Philomena Kwao

“My hair is extremely dry and fragile, so moisture is key. I love black castor oil, shea butter, and lots of water.”

― Philomena Kwao

“We’re just so self-conscious. However much we try not to be, on some level, especially as a woman and an actress, you have so much pressure when it comes your hair and the bags under your eyes and your skin.”

― Phoebe Waller-Bridge

“If you have bad hair and you bite your nails, nobody expects that you can’t direct plays.”

“Sisters are always drying their hair. Locked into rooms, alone, they pose at the mirror, shoulders bare, trying this way and that their hair, or fly importunate down the stair to answer the telephone.”

― Phyllis McGinley

“I have not had any plastic surgery in any shape or form. No implants. And my hair is not dyed.”

― Pierce Brosnan

“I felt like an ugly duckling back in school. I was a complete tomboy with short hair. Never in my dreams did I imagine that I would walk the ramp with 6-inch heels. My friends can’t believe that I’m an actor, because I was such an introvert in school.”

― Pooja Hegde

“Look after yourself, get rest, get a facial, get a hair treatment, eat really well, work out, get a personal trainer. And that’s really the key: to take care of yourself and not burn out.”

― Poppy Delevingne

“Coconut oil. I rub it through my hair, all over my skin, all over my body. Natural’s the better way to go.”

― Poppy Delevingne

“I’m a bit of a bed head: I’m always running around with no make-up on and my hair in a mess, but my nails are one thing I do love to keep looking nice, so it’s rare to see me without it.”

― Poppy Delevingne

“When I was a teenager, I was obsessed with black eyeliner all around the eye, but for someone with my kind of skin tone and hair colour, using brown is actually better than black. I’ve also learnt from makeup artists how to apply lipstick in the correct way: by starting with the Cupid’s bow first and working your way around.”

― Poppy Delevingne

“Every time I have visited the U.S., I have been asked to let loose my hair and remove the hair pins. Each time, I have put up a defiant face.”

― Preneet Kaur

“When you cut your hair, everybody thinks you lost weight.”

― Prince Fielder

“The gummy bears tattoo was my idea. It’s my son’s favorite candy. The sketch was my other son’s idea. It’s a self-portrait of himself. I just showed the artist his sketch and had him tattoo it on my forearm. It looks like a stick person with big hair. It’s pretty funny.”

― Prince Fielder

“My hair is capable of doing a lot of different things.”

― Prince

“Most artists lose their voice, their hair, and their bands. That’s not going to happen to me.”

― Prince

“Beatrice loves her glamorous dresses and her hair being curly or big – like Mummy’s – and I hate volume. I like my hair to be sort of flat. I like just throwing on a pair of jeans and generally being more understated. She is more ‘Let’s do the glamour.’ We’re chalk and cheese.”

― Princess Eugenie of York

“When I’m not shooting, I don’t wear much makeup. I just moisturize and maybe put on a berry-colored balm on my lips and cheeks, and then mascara – that’s it. My face and hair gets abused every single day, so I try take it easy on off days.”

― Priyanka Chopra

“My mom had done some TV and commercials before I was born, and so when I was born, she knew I had a really big interest in acting because I was always acting in plays with my dolls, and they were sort of boring, because I’ve seen them on tape; they always involved a lot of singing and dragging them around by their hair.”

“Like most men, I can’t say I am thrilled my hair’s falling out, but then, if I really cared, I suppose I would wear a wig, get transplants, or start taking special pills, so I am obviously just putting up with it.”

― Robert Webb

“Instead of inventing imaginary friends, I invented whole imaginary worlds. They were elaborate scenarios about spies and adventurers and top secret missions.

― Ronaldo

“As a kid, I was called Tintin because of my hair colour and style.”

― Ruby Rose

“When I first started in the industry back home in Australia at 18, there was a lot of push and shove as to how I should dress, if I was allowed to cut my hair short, if I had too many tattoos.

― Sebastian Stan

― Selena Gomez

“This is a very superficial job. I sit in a chair for two hours and get hair and makeup done and talk about myself in interviews. That’s a very vain thing to do. And I do get caught up in it sometimes.”

― Selena Gomez

“I wanted to be like my friends. I hung out with girls who had blue eyes and blond hair and I thought, ‘I want to look like them!’”

― Selena Gomez

“I don’t wash my hair every day, which may sound gross, but it’s actually really bad for my hair.”

― Sergio Garcia

“It’s true that when I started out, I was more a fan of attacking players and one in particular: the Brazilian Ronaldo, Ronaldo Luis Nazario de Lima. Another of my idols was Claudio Caniggia, an Argentinian forward with long hair, who I liked a lot. It’s because of him that I started to grow my hair long!”

― Sergio Ramos

― Shannon Lucid

“I’ve been on the locs journey for over 15 years. I must say I’ve enjoyed my hair short, but really love it long because I can experiment with so many different styles.”

― Shanola Hampton

“I would say to anyone choosing to embark on something new with their hair, just do it – it’s just hair! Have fun, and sometimes it works, sometimes it won’t.”

― Shanola Hampton

“I miss my hair, but I feel like going out there with some fake braids wouldn’t be right. I want to be the most genuine performer I can be.”

“We’ve got 400,000 girls with beach-y blonde hair, the same nose, gigantic lips, implants in their cheeks, and little Chicklets for teeth. Are they really prettier?”

― Sharon Stone

― Sharon Stone

“There’s not really anywhere I can go without being recognized, but if I put my hair up, that cuts the crowd in half.”

― Shaun White

“Her makeup, hair and general quirkiness overshadow the fact that Cyndi Lauper was one the most soulful chicks to come out of the ’80s.”

― Shawn Amos

“There’s a reason for Art Garfunkel’s oddly shaped hair. It hides a very big brain.”

― Shawn Amos

“I grew up in a predominantly Caucasian community, and most of my friends had blonde hair and blue eyes. So I was always straightening my hair, wearing colored contacts, and I never tanned, if I could help it.”

― Shay Mitchell

“I can’t live without mousse. When my hair is damp I put it at the roots. When I blow dry my hair it makes it so much bouncier. It gives you shampoo commercial hair and makes your blowout so much better.”

― Shay Mitchell

“I didn’t realize how many actresses have tons of extensions. Their hair is still pretty, but it blew my mind to find that out. I admire the girls who switch it up a lot like Rihanna. But I also love Gisele Bundchen because she found a style that works and never changes it.”

― Shay Mitchell

“When I was a kid, I always had the red hair, the white skin, and freckles. Back then, I wanted to look like everybody else, but now I realize that being different is definitely a major help.”

― Shweta Tripathi

“I’m allowed to maintain some modicum of privacy. But also, I would like not to be picked apart or for people to observe when I put on 10 pounds or take off 10 pounds, or I have a hair extension out of place, or my fake tan is botched.”

― Sia

“The Beatles were no trouble… lots of girls. The Stones were black-jacketed guys, a rough crowd. A whole different scene between the Stones’ black leather jackets and the Beatles’ pretty-dressed girls with the ribbons in their hair, teenagers standing on the seats screaming, nothing broken.”

― Sid Bernstein

“I didn’t realize the connection between the mullet and success. For sure, you have to have a little bit of hockey hair – a little bit of flow, as they say. A lot of guys have fun with their hockey hair, so I’ll try to keep it a little long.”

“My height was not a deterrent, and it did not make me the person I am. It was like my long brown hair or my brown eyes – a physical characteristic that differentiated me from quite a percentage of the population.”

― Sinead Burke

“I don’t feel like me unless I have my hair shaved. So even when I’m an old lady, I’m going to have it.”

― Sinead O’Connor

“It was a reaction to when I was growing up, and women were supposed to be all blonde hair, gold suntan, and pink lips. It was a real black-and-white opposite of what was considered attractive. I was kicking against something I found really oppressive.”

― Siouxsie Sioux

“Pop culture says that if a black girl is to be taken seriously, she has to assimilate and be as white as possible, to the point of bleaching her hair blonde.”

― Sofia Richie

“When I first started on ‘Medium,’ they didn’t like me growing my hair too long. But I was freaked out when the hairdresser cut off even an inch.”

― Sofia Vassilieva

“I’m a natural blonde. But when I started acting, I would go to auditions and they didn’t know where to put me because I was voluptuous and had the accent, but I had blonde hair. It was ignorance: they thought every Latin person looks like Salma Hayek.”

― Sofia Vergara

“I actually love my natural hair when it’s in a twist out and it’s been slept on for five days and revived by the steam of the shower.”

― Solange Knowles

“I have a mother who never took no for an answer when it came to her creative pursuits. She started a hair salon in her spare bedroom and four years later had 30 employees.”

― Solange Knowles

“When I was 13, I began relaxing my hair, and that meant when I turned 18 it began to crack and fall off, and when I began anchoring, I had short, stubbly pieces of hair. And trying to report in San Francisco with fog meant my hair swelled.”

― Soledad O’Brien

“My hair journey involved a lot of trying to figure out how to deal with my hair as a bi-racial girl in a white community living in Long Island, N.Y., where no one had a clue what to do with it.”

― Soledad O’Brien

“I have endorsed every hair product in my career. Looks have been my bread, butter, jam. Looks are important in our society.”

― Sonali Bendre

“When I shaved my hair, my friends asked me to keep it, maybe make my own wig out of it, but I wanted the old hair to go; it was not mine. I wanted to let go.”

― Sonali Bendre

“Bengalis have the best skin and hair; there’s something more about the fish from here. I think I will start ordering fish from Bengal!”

― Sonali Bendre

― Stacey Farber

“I would love to have my hair back and to be two inches taller – I am 5 ft. 8 in.”

― Stanley Tucci

“I’ve worn wigs. I’ve done a few plays where I have to wear a wig because they needed longer hair.”

― Stark Sands

“Sometimes, when you roll out of bed, you don’t want to be photographed by the paparazzi. Usually you like to know when you’re being photographed. I’ve learnt that, as a public figure, you have to up your game and be prepared. Ideally, you try not to roll out of bed without brushing your hair – just chuck a brush through it, make a little effort.”

― Stella Maxwell

“All my family look Irish. They act Irish. My sister even has red hair… it’s crazy. I’m the one that doesn’t seem Irish. None of the kids in my family, my siblings, speak with an Irish accent… we’ve never lived there full-time; we weren’t born there. We just go there once or twice a year. It’s weird. Our parents sound Irish, but we don’t.”

― Stella Maxwell

“The best filmmakers have a very familial attitude in sort of embracing the set, beyond the cast, with the wardrobe, and the hair and makeup, and the props, just making everybody feel very familial.”

― Stephan James

“Grooming is 10 times more important than makeup. I use a hair gloss with a teeny bit of color in it that makes my hair very shiny.”

― Stephanie Seymour

“I wash my face with soap and water. I use whatever I have. I will even wash my hair with the hotel shampoo, so I don’t use anything special. I try to keep it simple.”

― Stephanie Sigman

“When you think back to your first kiss, your hair is perfect and she was wearing a cool outfit. We remember it with restraint and we remember it with style. We remember it as idealistically as you can think.”

― Stephen Chbosky

“Aaron is not at all what his image might indicate. He’s fiercly loyal and a true and total gentleman. He’s very shy but has very strong opinions. He’s into everything, wardrobe, hair, script, casting.”

― Stephen Collins

“My teeth are all right, but they are not American teeth, and my hair is not thick and luscious. Los Angeles is dense with beautiful people, and most of the men who are aspiring actors are 5ft 5in, so I tower above them.”

― Stephen Merchant

“Occupational licensing laws – in trades like moving companies, realtors, hair dressers, limousine services, beauticians, physical therapy, and on and on – stunt small business start ups, destroy jobs, and raise prices for lower-income consumers.”

― Stephen Moore

“Rick Rubin’s undulating face hair is just as famous as his body of work. In homage to the yogis he read about as a boy on Long Island, Rubin hasn’t shaved since he was 23. It’s long been his registered trademark.”

― Stephen Rodrick

“I think I started realizing I was losing my hair when I was in Illinois. And it was traumatic. It was not something I had figured on in my life.”

― Stephen Tobolowsky

“The hair is real – it’s the head that’s a fake.”

― Steve Allen

“Golf mogul Donald Trump sports an arrangement of hair that is less a comb-over than a ‘do-over, a candy-floss confection of gossamer wisps that comes off as the clumsiest cover-up since Watergate.”

― Steve Rushin

“’Hard Knocks’ seems to have done for the self-serious NFL what the witch did for Rapunzel: persuaded it, somehow, to let its hair down.”

― Steve Rushin

“The 70’s hair with the long on the sides, just doesn’t look good coming down the sides of the helmet.”

― Steve Yzerman

“I think I look really weird with short hair. So I figured if I’ve got a mustache, I think it looks less creepy with long hair. Like a wild look.”

― Steven Adams

“Why is it surprising that scientists might have long hair and wear cowboy boots? In fields like neuroscience, where the events you are recording are so minute, I suspect scientists cultivate a boring, reliable image. A scientist with a reputation for flamboyance might be suspect.”

― Steven Pinker

“I’m the kind of person who likes to create the environment and mindset – not because I do it deliberately, but because that’s how I like to live – where, from catering to makeup to hair to wardrobe, electricians, camera department lighting, sound, you know, it’s our movie; we’re together, and we have that camaraderie and that closeness.”

― Steven Rodney McQueen

“Whatever the raw material, the material itself is unimportant until it’s catalyzed by emotional fervor. So in the ideal exchange between me and my listeners, they wouldn’t ‘figure out’ my music. They would feel their pulse racing and the hair standing up on the backs of their necks.”

― Steven Stucky

“When I was younger, I went through the windshield of a car ,and my hair didn’t grow back right. I had been wearing scarves occasionally, and I decided that I didn’t want to deal with wigs and things, so I just stumbled onto my thing.”

― Steven Van Zandt

“I’m doing lots of interviews and stuff. I’m longing for the days of getting up, not having to put on makeup and do my hair and just going to the studio.”

― Stevie Nicks

“Long hair doesn’t look good on me because my hair is fine.”

― Sue Perkins

“In Hebrew, the name Susan means ‘graceful lily’ – in Khmer, it means ‘girl with the bad puns,’ and in ancient Aztec, it translates as ‘she with the cockerel hair and dirty glasses.’”

― Sue Perkins

“My idea of hell is to sit with a pair of curling tongs or have my hair blow-dried: I fidget like a 12-year-old boy.”

― Sue Perkins

“Ever since I was a little teen, I was told by my great-grandma that you’ve got to always have a good moisturizer. I use cocoa butter, and I use it for all things needing moisture – face, hair, throw it on those legs at the beach, get them all shiny. Cocoa butter is such a great product.”

― Sufe Bradshaw

“In Italy, I had an Afro, and a lot of the kids came up and felt my hair. It really was funny. I wish I had understood Italian.”

― Sugar Ray Leonard

“I rinse my hair with Coca-Cola sometimes. I don’t like my hair when it’s washed – it’s fine and limp – but Coca-Cola makes it tousled, like I’ve gone through the Amazon or something.”

― Suki Waterhouse

“If I want to look half decent, a blow dry is a godsend. I’m crap at doing my own hair.”

― Suki Waterhouse

“My hair is like flat baby hair after I wash it, so it needs something in it to get that ‘day after’ texture.”

― Suki Waterhouse

“I like old rockabilly style. I always wear denim on denim with suspenders and slicked back hair.”

― Sung Jin Park

“In space, you need to stay as ‘usual’ as possible. On the space station, I would brush my hair every day.”

― Sunita Williams

“My hair is really easy. I used to wear it very curly on air, but they prefer a smoother look on television. I just flat iron it and do big barrel curls.”

― Sunny Hostin

“’Unforgiven’ gave me the opportunity to be a complete changeling: the blonde hair, the research that I did at the prison. It changed the perception of me.”

― Suranne Jones

“I was a heathen Jewess with no bat mitzvah. Only the neurosis, the brown hair, and the self-deprecating humor. But being one of the only Jewish kids in my WASPy hometown definitely informed my perspective on the humor of being an outsider.”

― Susanna Fogel

“My hair is naturally curly, and in the 80’s, even though I experimented with different lengths, I generally wore it curly. Since then, I’ve learned how to use a blow dryer and flat iron.”

― Susanna Hoffs

“No one recognizes me. And I hope that I can always go out without being recognized. Maybe that limits you in some way but I like to be able to pull my hair back in a ponytail and get groceries without anyone noticing.”

― Susanna Thompson

“Not that it was Twiggy’s fault, but the ubiquity of her image created a sense in young women that to be stylish meant to be skinny, flat-chested with an ingenue face and straight hair.”

― Susie Orbach

“I used to have long hair and get it done every two weeks, and it was never worth it to me. I would just walk out of the salon and put it in a ponytail anyway.”

― Syd

“A little thing, like children putting flowers in my hair, can fill up the widening cracks in my self-assurance like soothing lanolin.”

― Sylvia Plath

“I looked on my stomach and saw Frieda Rebecca, white as flour with the cream that covers new babies, funny little dark squiggles of hair plastered over her head, with big, dark-blue eyes.”

― Sylvia Plath

“I’m proud of my short hair. I don’t think I will grow it long again.”

― Sylvie Meis

“I’ve always loved playing with hair. I used to want dreads like Lauryn Hill, but my mom wouldn’t let me.”

― SZA

“I always wanted to be a Klingon princess. They were so pretty, and their hair was fire. My hair is Klingon, I feel like.”

― SZA

“I’ve fried my hair off. I’ve shaved my hair off. I’ve done it all.”

― SZA

“I’ve stated that it’s possible the only reason I’m in show business is that I have such a strange, particular head of hair. That, and I can grow a red beard.”

― T. J. Miller

“I first learned how to do hair from drag queens. I learned eyelashes are the key to life, because they make everyone look fabulous.”

― Tabatha Coffey

“Being in the beauty industry has taught me that most of us are never satisfied with how we look. We all wish we had better hair, could lose that last 10 pounds, or look like someone else. I always see the beauty in the clients that have sat in my chair, and I’ve tried to help them see it, too, and feel good about themselves.”

― Tabatha Coffey

“I love the Cannes Film Festival. From the lavish parties and events to the red carpet attire, this star-studded week-long event is where I get a lot of inspiration for hair and fashion.”

― Tabatha Coffey

“Not every woman has time to go to a salon and have her hair blow-dried every day.”

― Tamara Ecclestone

“My hair is naturally really thin and dead straight, with no movement.”

― Tamara Ecclestone

“I remember reading the cruelest, most awful thing about my hair online. A person speculated about who I was as a person and even read into my personal life based solely off my hairstyle. He or she said I must be lazy because I have short hair. It was just devastating.”

― Tamron Hall

“I think when I first straightened my hair, I was a teenager. I don’t believe that I was consciously doing it to look white or to be on television. It never crossed my mind. All of the girls in my neighborhood got perms and their hair straightened. But I know that historically it was to assimilate and there are some people who do it for that reason.”

― Tamron Hall

“I laugh about it all the time, but, for whatever reason, a lot of people think that I wear a wig. I get emails and tweets about people commenting on my hair being a wig. It’s one of the strangest but most entertaining things I’ve read about myself online.”

― Tamron Hall

“When we were growing up, women in their late 40s generally didn’t dye their hair.”

― Tamsin Greig

“Maybe this whole obsession about colouring our hair is about our inability to grow up. To let go of the fact we aren’t children any more, and the whole thing about changing our faces and looking young, and 60 being the new 40, is maybe we don’t want to let go of our childhood.”

― Tamsin Greig

“I like to have a reason to change my hair. I’m not very good at saying, ‘I think I’m going to do something else with my hair now.’ I like a character to lead it that way.”

― Tamzin Outhwaite

“I don’t know if I’m quite grizzly enough. My facial hair is still very thin and patchy. I feel someone who plays Wolverine potentially needs testosterone in abundance.”

― Taron Egerton

“I’m a black woman who loves hair. I enjoy changing my hair, having fun with it – just hair! I go from braids, to weaves, to wigs, to natural hair.”

― Tasha Smith

“I use honey to condition my hair and eggs for protein. Also, mayonnaise and olive oil are great options for keeping it moisturized.”

― Tasha Smith

“Clothing and makeup and hair and all of that so much indicates the kind of person you are inside and the person you are presenting on the outside. Sometimes they are in conflict, and sometimes they are the same. That psychology of the exterior informing the interior is just so interesting.”

― Tatiana Maslany

“I had short hair for a while, but I ended up loving it.”

― Tatyana Ali

“I’ve been embracing gray hair since… high school, and I don’t think that anything’s changed since then.”

― Taylor Hicks

“I remember straightening my hair because I wanted to be like everybody else, and now the fact that anybody would emulate what I do? It’s just funny.”

― Taylor Swift

“I would love to continue in music, with writing… but I am not the kind of person who will hang around if I start to become irrelevant. If that happens, I will bow down gracefully, raise my kids, and have a garden. And I am going to let my hair go gray when I am older. I don’t need to be blonde when I’m 60!”

― Taylor Swift

“I look out at the stadiums full of people and see them all knowing the words to songs I wrote. And curling their hair! I remember straightening my hair because I wanted to be like everybody else, and now the fact that anybody would emulate what I do? It’s just funny. And wonderful.”

― Taylor Swift

“I don’t know if I could do this with the same energy, and in the same way – all the costume changes and glitter and hair and makeup – all the time. When I’m in my 50s, I kind of think I’ll want to be in a garden.”

― Taylor Swift

“Let’s make Donald Trump explain his hair.”

― Ted Deutch

“There’s a company that wants to put hair on me! I don’t know if it’s plugs, I’m sure it is. I laughed and said, ‘You gotta be kidding.’”

― Terry Bradshaw

“I don’t have hair anymore. I’ve shrunk. I’m barely 6 feet 2 inches. I just had my teeth fixed because I’m a grinder.”

― Terry Bradshaw

“I wanted to be like Vivien Leigh in ‘Gone With the Wind.’ I wanted to have black hair, green eyes and break hearts.”

― Terry Farrell

“I was getting frustrated with America. It’s interesting how as simple a thing as, like, letting your hair grow longer changed in the world in those days.”

― Terry Gilliam

“If you are interested in ideas, radio is way more pure than television. You’re not distracted by somebody’s nose or hair or posture. You can really see how someone thinks and penetrate to the essence of who that person is.”

― Terry Gross

“It feels good to be a role model for little girls who don’t often see natural hair on the red carpet.”

― Teyonah Parris

“I’ve wanted to be an actress my whole life, and the – none of the women I aspired to be like had natural hair.”

― Teyonah Parris

“I got my first relaxer when I was nine years old. This was in the ’90s, and I convinced my mom to let me perm my hair so I could wear a French roll with the crimps in the front.”

― Teyonah Parris

“When I’m filming, I keep my hair in cornrows so that they can fit a wig on top of my hair.”

― Teyonah Parris

“I had been getting relaxers since I was eight or nine. I had no clue. It was a personal mission to really find out who am when I’m not altering myself to look like anybody else. Who am I when I wake up and I don’t do anything to my hair? Who is that woman? I want to meet her. And that was what catapulted my journey into going natural.”

― Teyonah Parris

“Generally, when I’m going to a new project, I take my own makeup. I’ll explain to them what it is that I would like. If they are receptive, we figure it out together. If they’re not, I’ll be going to back to my trailer and doing my own makeup. And that’s the same for hair.”

― Teyonah Parris

“I always tell myself, ‘When I’m working on my record, I won’t cut my hair.’ I get so focused on the music that I’m not really going to the hair shop and getting cut up. I just have one thing to focus on.”

― Theophilus London

“I have a personal barber, Mister C. He lives in Brooklyn, but he travels with me. He used to cut Lady Gaga’s hair, but he fired her to work for me.”

― Theophilus London

“On ‘Love Actually,’ I met Hugh Grant, who is a relative: our great-grandmothers were sisters. He’d call me cousin and ruffle my hair. And it was brilliant working with David Tennant on ‘Doctor Who.’”

― Thomas Brodie-Sangster

“As a kid, I drew comics. I had curly hair. I liked to joke, but I was kind of nervous about it at first until it was coaxed out of me.”

― Thomas Middleditch

“It’s easy to complain that pharmaceutical companies place profits over people and apparently care more about hair loss than TB. However, many in the pharmaceutical industry would be glad for the opportunity to reorient their research toward medicines that are truly needed, provided only that such research is financially sustainable.”

― Thomas Pogge

“Without so much as turning a hair I freely admit that I am one of America’s greatest realists.”

― Thorne Smith

“At the start of high school, I looked like a girl… to a very major degree. I had really long hair and a really round face with no facial hair. And I went to a very rough high school.”

― Thundercat

“Surely the fact that a uniformed police officer is wearing his hair below his collar will make him no less identifiable as a policeman.”

― Thurgood Marshall

“I slipped at a bus stop; I went one way and my hair went the other. That was the end of my wig.”

― Tia Carrere

“It was not appropriate for me to wear anything like a bustier or to be sexy. It was big hair and hoop earrings and jean jackets.”

― Tiffany Darwish

“Looking back at old-school pictures, I never had a hair or makeup person. I wasn’t required to wear a lot of hair and makeup. I was never really allowed to do that because it was the image.”

― Tiffany Darwish

“I’ve been told a million times that I should do a Pantene ProV commercial because my hair is really shiny and long and healthy and I have a lot of it.”

― Tiffany Dupont

“Basically I’m a female human being with brown hair, enjoy precision, reading the news, eating delicious food with my delicious friends and laughing at ridiculous things that don’t translate while you are desperately trying to make them.”

― Tig Notaro

“I am not a redhead. I have never been and am still not. Well, just a little… but I was blond as a kid and then mousy brown. As I got older… it came up. I’ve got a lot of red in my hair, but I’m not a ginge.”

― Tim Minchin

“I am a very ginger-coloured person, but I don’t have orange hair.”

― Tim Minchin

“You get money out of acting. You get gray hair out of directing. Actually, I get more of a rush from directing.”

“Each State has its own health insurance mandates, and some of them are good, but there are about 1,800 of them all across the Nation, including provisions for acupuncturists, massage therapists, and hair replacements.”

― Timothy Murphy

“Hair color is just an expression of something different that you want to have, or something creative.”

“At the start of the ’50s, I had short hair. And I was getting nowhere.”

― Tiny Tim

“There’s no more important bonding thing than a mother doing the daughter’s hair. We sit at our mother’s knee and learn who we are.”

― T’Keyah Crystal Keymah

“A lot of actors just don’t seem grown up no matter how old they get… just juveniles with grey hair.”

― Todd Haynes

“When the Beatles first came out, you had to go to a certain amount of trouble to have long hair. You just couldn’t have it immediately. Anything you can just go out and get – like platform shoes – is not going to inspire people as much as something they have to go through a little bit of hell to have.”

“Accents are very easy for me. With me, it’s clothing and makeup and hair and all that stuff that inform how the character moves and feels.”

― Toks Olagundoye

“So many guys are so conservative with their hair, and I always joke with all my buddies when they mess with me, and I’ll say, ‘That’s right, keep the same haircut for ten years.’ How fun is that?”

― Tom Brady

“My eldest daughter’s been to a few sets of mine and gets spoiled when she’s doing her nails, her hair. Though more often than not, you bring them to set, and they realize the filming process is pretty boring.”

― Tom Ellis

― Tom Felton

“It took us a lot of man hours to get that bloody white hair out, so it’s good to get rid of it.”

― Tom Felton

“My grandmother was probably the first person who I thought was beautiful. She was incredibly stylish, she had big hair, big cars. I was probably 3 years old, but she was like a cartoon character. She’d swoop into our lives with presents and boxes, and she always smelled great and looked great.”

― Tom Ford

“My grandmother was probably the first person who I thought was beautiful. She was incredibly stylish, she had big hair, big cars. I was probably 3 years old, but she was like a cartoon character.”

― Tom Ford

― Tom Ford

“I hate tricky facial hair. If your facial hair is too spotty in places, shave. Just forget about it.”

― Tom Ford

“If there are nine guys auditioning and they’re all gorgeous, I have an advantage, because gorgeous guys are a dime a dozen. But if they need someone else – like a goofy guy with bad hair who is just okay – then that’s me. And finally, the other 2 percent who audition are geniuses that I could never touch.”

― Tom Hanks

“Bankers don’t get to do this. For all the hours, the late nights, lack of sleep and hours of pulling your hair out from dealing with 18- and 19-year-old kids, it’s a pretty cool job.”

― Tom Herman

“In ‘Thor,’ that was my own hair. I grew it out. But I have naturally curly, blonde hair, so I’ll never look like that. By the time I got to ‘The Avengers,’ I had come off two other films, which required me to have it very short. So I dyed it again and it was long enough to use a part of my hairline.”

― Tom Hiddleston

“Rock n’ roll was one thing, and then they chopped off the ‘roll’ and called it ‘rock,’ which became a sort of umbrella term for anything with a guitar in it. Like hair bands. How could we possibly believe that? It’s just gotten downright silly, to the point where now it’s sort of become like professional wrestling.”

― Tom Petty

“The first generation of Russian terrorists came out of the ’60s counterculture – the 1860s in Russia bearing a striking similarity to the 1960s in the United States, with Russian students growing their hair, following gurus who extolled the ‘new man,’ and starting communes.”

― Tom Reiss

“Maybe it’s the hair. Maybe it’s the teeth. Maybe it’s the intellect. No, it’s the hair.”

― Tom Shales

“It’s something I’d find rather distracting in a historical piece, looking at characters that have obviously just gotten off their Ab Blaster. You see a piece set in the 1300s or the 1800s, and you’ve got characters who have perfect abs and are incredibly well-groomed, not a hair out of place, and it just doesn’t make sense.”

― Tom Weston-Jones

“At the age of 41, I’m glad I still have hair.”

― Tony Stewart

“I feel like doing my makeup before a race is part of my uniform. I always come out with a hair scarf or a headband, and I try to wear a new one for each race.”

― Tori Bowie

“I use this brand called Ouidad; they’re great. Not Your Mother’s is another one. Garnier Fructis. I use a bunch of stuff. Literally, I just throw a huge concoction of stuff in my hair after I get out of the shower, and then I diffuse it.”

― Tori Kelly

“When I’m on stage, I generally wear what I would wear every other day, but I think my hair is probably bigger on stage – it seems to be my accessory!”

― Tori Kelly

“After I shower and put in all my products, I hang out with the diffuser with my head flipped over for five to seven minutes. But before I use a hair dryer, I’ll towel-dry my hair. Actually, drying your hair with an old T-shirt is a great trick. It helps to get all the extra water out, without bringing on frizz.”

― Tori Kelly

“I really like to rock it natural and let my hair go wild, but when I do style it, I slick all the hair over to one side with pins. It’s either that or a messy bun.”

― Tori Kelly

“We lived by the water, and I was a pretty normal kid until my teenage years; then I dyed my hair pink and spiraled out of control.”

― Tove Lo

“When I’m not working, I spend a lot of time on my hair. When it’s time for my hair to get some rest, I either wear it in a ponytail, bun or my favorite ‘milkmaid’ braid.”

― Tracee Ellis Ross

“I used to literally collect friends that had hair like me. And it would start like this: ‘What kind of products do you use?’”

― Tracee Ellis Ross

“If wearing a weave is what makes you feel beautiful, if wearing a wig, if wearing your hair pink, blue, that’s what matters, in my opinion.”

― Tracee Ellis Ross

“I loved being a redhead! I always wanted to try it. I was obsessed with Lucille Ball growing up. I really wanted to try it but I always thought that doing it would ruin my hair.”

― Tracee Ellis Ross

“I grew up on the ragged edge of self-acceptance, where I was holding on to it, but it was easy to fall off. But as I found my way inside myself, I’ve been able to accept my own hair, my own shape.”

― Tracee Ellis Ross

“For so many years, I was trying to beat my hair into submission, trying to get it to look like someone else’s hair, and I didn’t know how. I remember going through a phase where I even put beer in my hair, because I was told that would make it smooth and curly.”

― Tracee Ellis Ross

“Every two months, I’ll get a trim, and every two years, I’ll get a cut. And my night ritual is that I go to sleep. I don’t wrap my hair, I don’t bun my hair, I don’t do crap!”

― Tracee Ellis Ross

“People can graduate from beauty school and know everything about white hair and nothing about African-American hair.”

― Tracie Thoms

“I’m around my kids every day. I’m regular. We’re a regular family. My wife cooks, she washes clothes, I read books, I pump my own gas, I get my own hair cut.”

― Tracy Morgan

“My hair is different than a lot of people’s. I like my hair. I like the fade. I like the little design I have. I’m cool with it. Obviously my hair is thin on top, so it looks like a bald spot, but I really could care less.”

― Trae Young

“I like hair each and every way. I like to give scalp massages – to pull and tug on it. But my favorite style is long, real hair in a dusty blonde-brown color.”

― Trey Songz

“It helps with your acting when you’re not in a perfect costume, perfect wardrobe, a perfectly seamed blouse, perfectly ironed hair, and perfectly done eyeshadow. It’s really liberating.”

― Trieste Kelly Dunn

“I wanted to be Cher for a long time, but not for the singing. I just thought she was so cool. I wanted her long hair, and I wanted to weigh five pounds.”

― Trisha Yearwood

“Nobody who cooks does it with full hair and makeup in front of a TV camera.”

― Trisha Yearwood

“I used to make everything myself. I used to do my own hair, make my own costumes, write my own jokes, and write my own songs. There were definitely some days where I had to choose between having tights that didn’t have holes in them or having to buy makeup or something I needed for a show.”

― Trixie Mattel

“’Drag Race’ doesn’t claim to represent drag as a whole. ‘Drag Race’ is a reality show. If you see real drag shows, we just do drag and respect each other’s art and who your real identity is – name, gender, hair color, anything.”

― Trixie Mattel

“I’m not a glamorous girl. I don’t know how to do my hair. I’m very bad with makeup.”

― Troian Bellisario

“On my Instagram, my boyfriend will take pictures of me, or someone else will take a picture of me, and they’re like, ‘What is wrong with her? She looks sick.’ And I’m like, ‘No I just don’t have two hours of hair and makeup, you guys.’”

― Troian Bellisario

― Twinkle Khanna

“If I could be any avatar and go into a social virtual space, I think I would try to be my avatar from ‘Ready Player One’ ’cause why not? He’s already got the windy hair.”

― Tye Sheridan

“There was this wonderful trick of going to the theater with my parents and sitting in the audience under the watchful eye of an usher, and then these other people would come on the stage: They spoke differently and had different clothes and hair. Afterward, they would come back, and they were my parents again. It was magic.”

― Tyne Daly

“My mom was a medical photographer, but on the side, she did a before-and-after glam photography business in the house. She would do makeup and hair – and I was her assistant.”

― Tyra Banks

“Years ago, when I first started wearing hair extensions, I would get mail from young girls, or young girls would come up to me and they would say, ‘Tyra you have the most beautiful hair, like I could never grow hair like that!’ And I would say ‘Child, this is a weave!’”

― Tyra Banks

“I have worn fake hair since I was 17 years old.”

― Valeria Mazza

“The only things I really love about myself physically are my ankles and my hair.”

― Valerie Bertinelli

“I was a dancer, but I was always a little overweight. I’d say, ‘Hello, I’m Valerie Harper, and I’m overweight.’ I’d say it quickly before they could… I always got called chubby. My nose was too wide; my hair was too kinky.”

― Valerie Harper

“I grew my dreadlocks 12 years ago because they give me the freedom to roll out of bed and not spend hours on my woolly, thick hair. I get tons of dropped jaws and compliments, so I reckon folks like them all right.”

― Valerie June

― Valerie Plame

“My hair has been so wrecked over the years by various things.”

― Vanessa Lachey

“My character is Toni Topaz, and she’s from the new-generation Archie Comics. I will be rocking the signature pink hair.”

― Vanessa Morgan

― Vanilla Ice

“I went through a big Jim Morrison phase where I grew my hair and wore those black leather pants. I even tried to get the boots, the chains, and I was full into getting that Jim Morrison vibe… but I didn’t go overboard or try the mascara.”

― Varun Dhawan

“I want to make sure that people feel it’s okay to make a mistake, to have a bad hair day, to look bad sometimes. It takes the pressure off them.”

― Varun Dhawan

“When I dress in a certain way and do my hair and makeup in a certain way, it’s not to get attention.”

― Victoria Beckham

“I’ve always loved makeup. I’m very, very girly. I used to sit and watch my mum get ready. My mum is very glamorous, and I remember sitting on her bed and watching her apply her makeup, get dressed, and do her hair.”

― Victoria Beckham

“Driving a car is no longer about zooming down clear lanes, the joy and freedom of the road flowing through your hair like a fine westerly breeze. It’s about solid traffic, petrol fumes, spy cameras, eco-guilt, and simultaneous social media.”

― Victoria Coren Mitchell

“My hair is a wild, untamable beast! I like letting it grow; my bangs grow whatever way they want and I kind of follow their rule. So side bangs, poof bangs – it’s kind of unpredictable.”

― Victoria Legrand

“I don’t wear dresses and flowers in my hair and float around!”

― Victoria Legrand

“My best hair care tip would be, choose a range that is right for your hair structure. Working with Pantene has made me realize the importance of this, and it really does make a difference. I have quite thick hair, so I use the Smooth & Sleek range.”

― Victoria Pendleton

“I’ve been working some really long hours for the last five or six years. Anybody who works on series television knows, and especially women because women spend probably two hours more than the guys with all their hair and makeup crap.”

― Victoria Pratt

“I was all about my thoughts, my work, my inspiration. I was always in hair.”

― Vidal Sassoon

“A working woman could save a few shillings a week, and then every five weeks she’d come in and we’d cut her hair. She could shampoo it under the shower, swing it and dry it off or just let it dry by itself. It changed the lives of many young girls who’d never had the opportunity to be styled like that before.”

― Vidal Sassoon

“Hair excited me. As the old ways – backcombing, rollers and rigidity – went out of the window, I started to feel the possibilities in front of my eyes.”

― Vidal Sassoon

“If you get hold of a head of hair on somebody you’ve never seen before, cut beautiful shapes, cut beautiful architectural angles and she walks out looking so different – I think that’s masterful.”

― Vidal Sassoon

“To me hair dressing means shape. It’s very important that the foundations should be right.”

― Vidal Sassoon

“In the end, I do not think we will find the neat boundary between ‘normal sadness’ and ‘clinical depression,’ if only because mood is an innate human characteristic, like weight or the length of our hair. However, to reject the very notion of depression as an illness on account of these difficulties is throwing the baby out with the bath water.”

― Vikram Patel

“My hairdresser loves me because he gets the liberty to get creative with my hair.”

― Vivienne Westwood

― Vonda Shepard

― Walt Whitman

“I remember the first time I went to Italy when I was eighteen, I was in Florence and there were all these eighteen, nineteen, twenty-year-olds gliding past on Vespas with crinkly, long, hair, and I thought I was on the set of a movie. I couldn’t believe that this was going on and I hadn’t known about it before. I was flabbergasted.”

― Wendy Williams

“’The Dictator’ lands somewhere between wan Mel Brooks and good Adam Sandler, whose ‘You Don’t Mess With the Zohan,’ about an Israeli Special Forces soldier at a hair salon, manages to strike better contrasts with vaguely similar culture differences – it’s a nuttier movie, too.”

― Wesley Morris

“In grammar school some of the girls had problems with me. My face was too light. My hair was too long. It was the black-consciousness period, and I felt really bad.”

― Whitney Houston

“In junior high P.E., I was way too shy to take a shower in front of the other kids. It was a horribly awkward time – body hair, odors… So I’d go from my sweaty shirt back into my regular clothes and have to continue the day.”

― Will Ferrell

“When I graduated from college, I thought I was losing my hair. And I started looking into hair transplants. I was talking to my mom. My mom said, ‘You’re crazy. You have so much hair.’ It was a real lesson in your mind playing tricks on you. You can make your mind think anything is happening.”

― Will Forte

“I fully accepted that I cannot grow facial hair, but it is quite emasculating.”

― William S. Burroughs

“There’s many a man has more hair than wit.”

― William Shakespeare

― Willie Robertson

“Adele’s look is meticulously thought through and completely of her own traits. She has such a powerful beauty, such an emotional voice, and the kohl, the hair, everything feels organically molded to her personality.”

― Xavier Dolan

“My hair and my accent are sort of my main assets.”

― Xavier Samuel

“I feel, even if someone is blessed with good hair, one needs to follow the basic hair care regime, and that means investing in the correct shampoo, conditioner, and mask.”

“My hair is naturally straight, and I maintain its texture. My weekly indulgence is an egg-white and olive oil hair mask that deep-conditions and adds incredible shine.”

― Yami Gautam

“I had that hunger to work and keep growing. So I started to cut hair. When I started getting better, I got my own barbershop. I had a lot of clients in my hometown, so I wouldn’t stop cutting hair. That’s why I think I have such discipline in my job because I’ve always been very responsible.”

― Yandel

“I’m louder and bigger with my curls. There’s power in that. Also, straight hair is kind of annoying. It gets caught in my collar.”

― Yara Shahidi

“I’d love to do a big hair campaign for L’Oreal, and Prada would be great, too, obviously.”

― Ymre Stiekema

“When the glam metal thing of the late ’80s became too glammy, then instead of having two bottles of hairspray in your hair, it became better not to wash your hair at all. To me it’s all trend stuff. I don’t follow that stuff. I just do what I feel is the right thing. I don’t know what the reason is for that. It’s not fashion.”

― Yngwie Malmsteen

“My hair was long with a fringe, and people would make jokes, calling me Britney and Lady Gaga.”

― Yolandi Visser

― Yulia Tymoshenko

“People say, ‘You should let your hair out; you shouldn’t be oppressed – you’re not in Malaysia anymore. You should show your curves and be proud of it.’ But I am proud – it’s my choice to cover up my body. I’m not oppressed – I’m free.”

“The thing about black women and black hair is that you just have to experiment.”

― Yvonne Orji

“Sometimes you’re just regular. Sometimes you wake up, and your breath stinks like everybody else, and you had a bad hair day.”

― Yvonne Orji

“I think one of the reasons ‘Gremlins’ lasts and some other films don’t is because I don’t think the movie has a whole lot of dated things – sure, the cars, my hair, and few things here and there that date the movie – but it takes place in a sort of everytown, in a sorta non-specific time, and that gives the movie a timeless quality.”

― Zach Galligan

“While women may look different, as some wear suits and others wear saris, or some cover their hair while others wear their hair loose, women need to stand together because they all face the central point of discrimination, although the extremity of which may be different from Kigali to Kabul.”

― Zainab Salbi

“It doesn’t really matter what someone’s hair looks like or if the sound is perfect. Every director who’s made a couple of movies knows that, because you can replace the sound. Or, like, any one shot is not that important, because they all add up together.”

― Zal Batmanglij

“I was always told from the hat-makers that you should have your hair up because it shows the hat more. It feels more ‘done’ when your hair is up.”

― Zaytoven

“When I was cutting hair, I felt like that was my trap. I started selling haircuts. I started selling beats; that’s me trapping. So trap music is like hustling music to me.”

― Zaytoven

“In Atlanta, I went to barber school. That’s how I met everyone I know in Atlanta, by cutting hair.”

― Zaytoven

“I feel like, every six months, I learn my hair or my skin anew and find a new thing that I like to do, and then I abandon it and move on.”

― Zazie Beetz

“When I was young, I had this feeling that there was this handbook that I had never gotten that explained how to be, how to laugh, what to wear, how to stand by yourself in the hallway. Everyone looked so natural – like they all practiced and knew exactly what to do – even the way they pushed their hair out of their face.”

― Ze Frank

“A good hair day is when my curls are popping. Sometimes my curls and waves, they like to go a little wild sometimes. They have a mind of their own. But some days, they just fall right into place.”

― Zendaya

― Zendaya

“Beautiful updos with natural hair are great!”

― Zendaya

“When I was younger, I went through a phase when I didn’t like my hair. Because the school I went to was primarily Caucasian, there wasn’t anyone who had my hair texture. I remember one day I straightened my hair, and that was the first day that people gave me compliments on it.”

― Zendaya

“A lot of people don’t realize that hair is a big thing for a lot of people, not just African-American women. It’s something to be aware of and to be cautious of.”

― Zoe Foster Blake

“I saturate freshly washed hair with thickening spray (R+Co). Then, using a Denman/styler brush and my Parlux, I brush and blow-dry the hair all over my head, in every direction, until it’s 80 percent dry. This gives atomic body and a great foundation for styling in the morning.”

― Zoe Foster Blake

“I have had brown hair and bangs since I was 2. One year I dyed it blonde, which felt so weird.”

― Zooey Deschanel

“I went to a strict elementary school with nuns, and uniforms that I’m pretty sure were made out of sandpaper. It was an academic, sports-oriented place. I liked to read, and wanted to act, and didn’t try out for volleyball. I was weird. The other girls would dip my hair in ink and stuff.”

― Zosia Mamet
