Fantastic Sams, which offers a full range of hair care and color services, conducted a survey among Twin Cities’ women to elicit opinions on salon visits and hair color services but also wanted to take a pulse on local celebrity hair for some fun insights.
“We found that Twin Cities’ women not only have strong opinions on their very own hair, but they’ve lots to say about their favorite celebrities’ hairstyles as well,” said Ernie Valeski, regional director of Fantastic Sams of Minnesota.
Josh Hartnett, followed by Twins’ player Joe Mauer, was awarded best hair for male celebrities, and actresses Jessica Biel and Cheryl Tiegs got the primary- and second-place nods for women. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Jesse Ventura and Sarah Jane Olson were voted most in need of a hair makeover. Local news personalities with the perfect hair were KARE-TV’s Belinda Jensen and WCCO-TV’s Frank Vascellaro.
In addition, survey respondents provided the next thoughts on celebrity hair:
Equal party loyalty: In the case of politicians, party affiliation would not necessarily predict best hair picks. For the local mayor with the perfect hair, Mayor Rybak earned 62 percent of the vote over St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman at 37 percent. In the ongoing Senate race, U.S. Senate candidate Norm Coleman won this election with 66 percent to Al Franken’s 34 percent. (Franken polled better in Minneapolis and St. Paul than he did in the suburbs.) Rybak received 72 percent of the Minneapolis vote and Coleman won his city as well with 68 percent, but suburban voters put Rybak over the top.
Channel surfing: The race for best anchor hair was tight: KARE-TV’s Belinda Jensen got high ratings here (25 percent), followed closely by WCCO-TV’s Amelia Santaniello (21 percent). Santaniello’s husband Frank Vascellaro narrowly edged KARE-TV’s Sven Sundgaard and Mike Pomeranz (25 percent in comparison with 22 percent for Sundgaard and 19 percent for Pomeranz), with Jeff Passolt of FOX 9 not far behind (18 percent).
Hollywood hits. While she received only 11 percent of the general vote, actress Winona Ryder was particularly popular with redheads (and in St. Paul), and women with blond hair rated Mauer just as highly as Hartnett – the rest preferred the actor over the catcher.
Aging gracefully: Women ages 51 to 60 prefer Tiegs’ hair and women ages 41 to 60 like anchor Julie Nelson’s. Likewise, Sundgaard draws rave reviews with the under 40 crowd whereas Vascellaro is a ratings hit with those over 40.
The survey, commissioned by Fantastic Sams and conducted by Stir Strategy, relies on a sample of 200 women living in the Twin Cities’ metro area.

Beauty at Any Cost – Helping Young Women Avoid This Dangerous Trap
Publisher: Donya Fahmy It’s no secret that our society and the media have established and continue to advertise an idyllic, almost impossible, standard of beauty that women consistently judge themselves against and are always aspiring to realize. By one estimate, American women spend almost $7 billion dollars a year on products used in the pursuit of beauty. Many cosmetics companies go to great lengths to market to teens and “tweens” (8 to 12 year olds) as part of this goal. Their emphasis is on creating cheap products that appeal to this demographic with little or no regard for the potential health or environmental impact of the chemicals used to provide them. This text contains 5 strategies to assist young girls and teens you know avoid falling into this trap. Cyclone Aila and Its Aftermath – A Discussion on Subjective Media Coverage
Publisher: Susanta Bhattacharyya Cyclone Aila had hit the Bengal coast on Monday, 25th of May, 2009 and has left a massive trail of destruction in numerous parts of the state. The dimensions of destruction and the suffering of the effected people were unprecedented. The Benhal chief minister Buddhadev Bhattacharjee has appealed to all political parties to rise above narrow politics and work hand in hand to supply relief to the distressed people. The aftermath of the massive cyclone has once again uncovered the ruthless anti-CPI(M) face of the mainstream media establishment. The all out media surge against the Left, particularly against the CPI(M) obviously lead to the suspicion that the media is perhaps working hand in glove for a much greater plan.
