The small bang theory

I'm surprised that I haven't seen any press on this (particularly considering how well-covered her wedding was), but what was up with Katie Holmes' hair on her wedding day? (Good friend and Celeb Fantasy League Season One Regular Season Winner Carol Seaver alerted me to this disturbing development.)

If you look at her wedding photo, as well as the photo earlier that same week taken of Katie with Tom and Suri, she has short wisps of hair right at the front of her hairline. They almost look like bangs. (Although Holt thinks that she is just growing new hairs.)

Which begs the question: why wouldn't you do something about this before your wedding? If they are in fact bangs, why would you cut them so short so close to your wedding day? If they are just new hairs, why wouldn't you hide them? It isn't like Katie didn't have access to the best hairstylists. After all, she and Tom provided hair and make-up teams for their guests. Surely someone could have done something with this coif?

Because really, the hairs aren't flattering. And I wouldn't want to have tiny pieces of hair on the crown of my head in my wedding photos. Now, perhaps Katie didn't care, thinking that she'll just throw the photos away in two years when they divorce, but they are still being plastered all over the press right now. Wouldn't you want to look your best?

And for those who think this is just the way Katie's hair always is, I have included two older photos of Katie without these strange bang-like hairs.

Guilty pleasures rule.

I really think they're fine, and totally natural. Her whole hair "look" for the wedding was a sort of slightly undone natural, and I don't think this is a crime against style. As for those early photos, the hairline looks airbrushed to me. I have all sorts of whispy little hairs at my hairline, and the only way not to have them would be to (a) wax them off (in which case regrowth, EW!) or (b) wax them down (in which case shiny helmet hair ugliness, EW!). So while I can find plenty to criticize about Katie's look as her wedding day approaches (see, e.g. bizarre insistence on combining pancake ass with highwaisted pants without rear pockets), I reject Red's small bang conspiracy theory.

I agree with Red on this one. There is something very stange going on with Katie and her bangs. Holt has lost her mind.

Thanks Wilder! Isn't it nice when we agree? Of course, all that is out the window when the next season of American Idol begins in January!
