Sharon Stone is an Oscar-nominee, Emmy-winner and has been nominator for and won countless other
accolades (as well as insults) for her various performances over the years. The one thing that can typically be said to be true about
this remarkable and very lovely woman is that she is individual.
She is most-typically recognized for her pixie-cut hairstyles, although she has been seen in film
and television movies and shows with varying lengths of hair. Letís take a look now at three years in the hairstyles of Sharon Stone:
Here we see Sharonís almost-signature short hair. This gamine-cropped, choppy cut is styled in a
disheveled look. The color is lightened to a pale buff color with added lightness to near-platinum shades.
Personally, this is not one of my favorite looks for Ms. Stone. I think the light color of the hair
washes out her skin tone, and the hair appears to be too-heavily processed and lacking in that healthy-looking shine. I also prefer a
more-ordered and textured style. The choppy, willy-nilly direction of the styling, for me, makes her look older.
Nine months pass and we see the majority of the pale blonde color grown out, with the remaining
vestiges confined to the ends of the hair in a ďfrosted tipsĒ style. The cut is longer now, but follows the previously established
blueprint. The hair is longer on
top and in the back with shorter layers on the sides. The plus side is that with the new growth and
lack of processed color, the hair appears much healthier.
Iím still not fond of the style, in spite of the healthier state of the hair. The bed-head look
simply looks like she was attacked by a herd of cows in desperate search of a salt-block. That being said, it is a step in the right
direction as far as color and condition of the hair.
Two months later and we see Sharon Stone with a little added color in her skin tone (from apparent
sun Ė or at least tanning product/equipment Ė exposure) and a return to added blonde in the hair. At least this time the blonde is a
more golden-toned shade and is more flattering to her natural skin pigmentation.
The cut is still basically the same as before, although it is now styled in a more-subdued and
slightly more-deliberate manner. Iím still not crazy for the look, but I consider it a step in the right direction. The darker skin
tones do serve as an example of how the short, choppy hair styling can exacerbate the appearance of age. While the previous photos
had equally short (and even shorter) hair, the appearance of the lines and wrinkles in the skin are minimized by the use of luminescent
and light-reflective cosmetics. Here, Ms. Stone is either sans make-up or is wearing a lighter application that is meant to match her
tanned skin tone. The result is that the laugh lines around her mouth and the lines around her eyes are in sharper relief and are more
We move forward fourteen months to find a completely new look for Sharon Stone. The color is again
a lighter blonde with a very gentle gradient from scalp to ends, but isnít so bright as to wash out her skinís natural tone thanks to
the colorís golden shades. The length shows that Ms. Stone has opted to grow out her hair, but there is a bit more length than I think
can be accounted for in only fourteen months, particularly given the level of layering in the starting position back in January í05.
Most likely, there have been extensions added to give the desired length and fullness to Ms.
Stoneís new look. It is a terrific job of blending and adding in the hair and obviously reflects the skill of the stylist responsible.
The cut is nice here, and the fringe-area texture is perfect for framing her face. The length and smooth styling serve to downplay
the angles of her features and the color is a great counter to the age lines that could be otherwise exacerbated.
