Default Pics of Stevie Nicks on Huff post..no curls!

Ohhh, she has boring straight hair now and looks ordinary; so sad. No more curls!

Yeah, she's been wearing it straight for awhile I think. She's wavy judging from the pics of her in her 20's, those 80's curls were a perm or a curling iron.

I don't get it either. I can't say I adore Taylor Swift but I did adore her hair. And I clearly remember reading an interview once where she said she loved her curls, they're part of who she is, & she'd never straighten them. Yeah...that went well....

She had beautiful hair, it was unique and suited her. Now she looks boring like everyone else.

yes, it's a big trend - Juliana Marguiles, Nicole Kidman, Debra Messing (one of my faves). I can understand wanting to change your look but many of these start out curly, go straight and then you rarely or never see their curls again

Oh, yes, I saw pics of Juliana Marguiles and Nicole Kidman in a mag - Nicole cut her hair too - I thought Juliana looked TERRIBLE, horrible with her straight hair slicked back - OMG. Not only that, but I think the straight severe look ages a woman - I have heard this discussed as well - that "going severe" is what most women do as we get older but it is exactly the opposite of what we should be doing. What a shame about these women! Andie McDowell used to be a wonderful curlie also....

I think Juliana's straight hair looks nice, but I don't think it would be easy to maintain without a professional stylist. I agree that well-kept curly hair does soften a face, whereas straight hair draws attention to the face.

I know I am in the minority, but I never got the hype over Nicole's looks or hair. I thought she and her hair looked great in Eyes Wide Shut, but that was it. I don't think the sleek straight, light blonde hair does her any favors. She does need some curl and more warmth to her color to look her best.

Hmmm. . . well, I'm not old enough to remember Steve Nicks as a curly because even though I was born in the 80's, I was just a kid, and I feel like since I've grown up she's always had straight hair. So I googled her curly hair and found this:

http://images2.fanpop.com/images/pho...0-1024-768.jpg

Got to say I think it looked terrible. I hate 80's hair. I hate perms. . . I think they look really bad, frizzy and dry. Not to say I love her modern flat ironed hair either. Going by the images she looks best with her natural wavy texture. Surprise, surprise.

Yeah 80's poodle perm hair is attractive on no one. Her waves are too fried for me to like and who knows if those are natural either.

As much as I like natural hair I don't think we should knock people for straightening their hair. It's all about having choices...though I do think people like Taylor Swift are unfairly pressured in to their decision. At the end of the day it's just hair, it's dead, so dye it, fry it, or baby it, no harm is done.

Except chemical relaxers...those are just terrible for your scalp, which is alive.

No one should relax their scalp. It is only supposed to be applied to the hair.

Obviously it shouldn't, but in reality the chemical does come into contact with the scalp...even with careful professional application.

I think it's more the Hollywood trend of going straight when you have beautiful curls that is discouraging. Celebrities are public figures and it's disheartening to see curls still in the minority in public when they are the majority of the natural texture around the world.

I've never had that issue, but I can see how it is possible. The same goes for color.
