#TransitionTuesday with Azure Parsons

On August 11, 2015 by Corey Powell

My client @azureparsons was very brunette for #astronautswivesclub on #ABC. So we decided to go very #blonde!  She’s so fearless when it comes to #color, she’s been every color you can imagine for different characters. It allows a lot fun and creativity in my job! #transitiontuesdays #kingofblonde #masterofmakeovers

Welcome back , I’m Corey Powell,  hollywood’s favorite hair critic, and thank you for checking in. Gonna have some chit chat on hair trends, fashion, up-do’s and don’ts, hits and misses at the Oscars.

Lets talk red carpet. The ABC family and my friend Lawrence Zarian were fun, asked some interesting questions, great interviews, talked about the movies, made trivial interesting. E’s coverage was trivial:  weird questions, mani-cams, Khloe Kardashian, PLEASE, brush that hair for Oscar – thank god for Ryan Seacrest. It’s all in fun and great to see the hairstylist and jewelry.

Singer Faith Hill is seen wearing a dress by J Mendel as she arrives at the 87th Academy Awards in Hollywood, California



Trending is Faith Hill, Rita Ora, and Jennifer Hudson who all look so fresh with cropped short hair cuts, with a side part, definitely HIT’S.

Dakota Johnson, not looking fifty shades of grey looking beautiful with her low pony and bangs, young  and HOTT.


Jennifer Lopez in that beautiful cinderella gown, thought the ponytail was bit too cheerleader and too casual for that beautiful gown.


What is John Travolta wearing on his head? REALLY, a wig – DON’T. Then feeling up and kissing the beautiful Scarlett Johansson is darker and a lot shorter hair, hipster, fresh and sassy, I like it, good change for her. It is a bit Miley Cyrus though.

Adam Levine somehow always pulls off edgy hair so cool.


WOW! Zoe Saldana was beautiful, the messy up-DO amazing, the dress and the jewelry…

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett is Cate, she’s beautiful. Up-Do and color looked great, not into the dress or the jewelry for the Oscars.

John Legend and Common WOW, such an emotional performance, even got Chris Pine all watery eyed which made him look even sexier, sporting the full facial hair.

Patricia Arquette sure looked like a winner, I love the blonde, with messy up-DO, her face her dress a definite hit. Was Jared Leto blessing her? Maybe hes playing Jesus in his next role.

Sean Penn looking older,  something about him still sexy, wearing all black.  I would wear that.

Welcome back, I’m Corey Powell, hair guru. Gonna have some chit chat on the Grammys hair do’s and don’t along with some hits and misses.

Something about the Grammy’s this year seemed so light, fresh, and non-attitudy, kitschy, wig wearing, very fun…


First, Ariana Grande is consistent with her high ponytail – BORING.

The 57th Annual Gramm_Schu(6)

Chrissy Teigen has gorgeous hair, pretty girl.


Katharine McPhee is a pretty girl, but what was that slicked down hair DONT?

The 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet

Sia was a bit CRAZY with that huge white wig, but who cares she sings amazing.


Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga were a funny couple, both their hair colors combined were many shades of grey.

Katy Perry and her Lavender messy bob looked great. How fun is Katie? First her performance at the super bowl, flying around the stadium, riding a huge horse, AMAZING. Then the emotional performance at the Grammy’s. WOW!


And the Swifty (Taylor Swift) fascinates me with her non T n A approach, and it looks to me like she wears her hair’s natural color, she could be much blonder easily.


Kim Kardashian cut her hair off finally, people are obsessed, I don’t get it. Was she wearing a sparkly robe? And that arrogant husband of hers, yuck.

iggy azaela hair grammys

Iggy Azalea is a pretty girl with great hair, but not sure I understood the braided cap hat thing, a bit like a basket weave, thats on the DON’T list.


Rihanna just barely making the red carpet looked almost like she floated in. Love that, she looked so angelic.


AC/DC’ S opening was definitely Rock N Roll. They’ve been around a very long time, and they still got it.


John Mayer, a client who’s hair looked great of course looking very dapper. He performed with Ed Sheeran who seems quite charming with his great voice, fire engine red hair, and boyish grin.

57th GRAMMY Awards Show - Pharrell Williams

Pharrell was fun in his shorts, suit, bow-tie outfit. Josh Duhamel always is looking good, great hair. .


Usher looking so stellar, handsome guy, singing “If It’s Magic” with Stevie Wonder, beautiful.

Nick Jonas, Meghan Trainor

Nick Jonas looked great, nice hair, and a fun suit. Megan Trainer looked great with her beautiful blonde hair as she presented best Country western album.


Miranda Lambert was looking seriously HOTT, sexy hair cut, pretty shade of blonde and what a voice.


Annie Lennox with her bleach blonde cropped hair looked amazing, her performance with Hozier tore it up!


Kanye West wore us down poking fun at himself pretending to make a stink about Becks win for best album.


Madonna dazzled in her sexy Givenchy Bolero get up, her blonde wavy locks were looking a bit on the Mae West side of town.


I love the simplicity of Jessie J’s black bob, tucked behind one ear. With that amazing voice who needs distraction.


Gwen Stafani was looking fanfuckintastic, love the blonde, chic, modern up-do, sexy and classy performing with the sexy Adam Levine, who always has good hair. He tried blonde once, but was not his best look.

Thanks for joining me and keep your eyes out for me on E! NEWS for some of my tips and tricks for the red carpet.

See you next time after the Oscars…


AWARD SEASON – Hair in review.

On January 29, 2015 by Corey Powell

Welcome back and thank you for joining me for some chit chat on hair, celebrities, and most importantly Award Season hair. Hope you had a great weekend, I did. Worked with one of my favorite clients. I don’t get to see her much, as she lives in London Gwendoline Christie plays Brienne of Tarth on the Game of Thrones. She needed her Blonde locks to be AMAZING for the SAG awards. She got what she came for, I worked my Magic.


Then Saturday evening I went to see another client Broadway Diva Betty Buckley and hear her sing at the new Wallis Annenberg theatre in Bev Hills, where I ran into my mentor Jose Eber who I have not seen for 20 years. Betty was BRILLIANT.


OK, so lets talk about The Golden Globes, they are the kickoff of the award season. This year the Globes were a bit of a disappointment as far as Hair, Glamour and Fashion. Maybe it was the weather, it was a bit rainy.

The Critics Choice awards (which I did not watch) had many red carpet HITS.


First, Jennifer Aniston looked gorgeous in her red suit, with hair down.


My client Michelle Monaghan looked amazing with her hair pulled back, made the best dressed list.


Jessica Chastain hair rocked the loose braid with knots and the extra bit of hairline pulled over and pinned. LOVE, perfect with the dress.


Emily Blunt is sporting a sombre hair color, it’s pretty, not sure it’s my favorite hair color on her, but still beautiful in the red dress.


Ethan Hawke is looking super stylish, always has good hair.lucky guy. The men are kinda limited in their fashion expression at these award shows.

Now the SAG Awards:

My first time watching, the opening was nice the actors introducing themselves as actors, was cute. created a casualness.. I quite liked the show, was nice how the actors introduce their own shows. Everyone looked good.


My client was beyond, standing 6’2 beautiful blonde hair (ME) wearing a Giles (her BF) red couture gown, made especially for the SAG awards.

Claire Danes hair color and style was great, sexy, Loved.

Julianne Moore wins again, loved her dress, and her “ barely done” do.

Patricia Arquette won again and looked so much better than the Globes, loved the glasses. !!!

emma-stone-side-parted-pony reese-witherspoon-sag-awards-2015-red-carpet-10

Reese Witherspoon and Emma Stone with their side-parted ponytails sleek and chic.

Julia Roberts back to red hair, LOVED,!!!


Frances Mcdormand sporting chic short grey hair, not easy, WORKED.


Naomi Watts looked a classic beauty, and Kudos to who ever does hair color.


Laverne Cox, I think It’s the first transgender to be a presenter, I think that dress got her on the worst dress list, the hair with that front braid was interesting.


Keira Knightley was ravishing pregnant in purple, hair was pulled back with back down, few loose pieces around face, very soft and sexy.

If the SAG awards are any inclination of the Academy Awards, should be fun… Keep your eye out on E! NEWS for some of my red carpet tips and tricks.

Thanks for tuning in, see you back here right after the Grammy’s
