Mythologized, demonized, celebrated: Every shade, from carrot to scarlet, conveys an inscrutable allure. Julianne Moore, Jessica Chastain, Domhnall Gleeson, Amy Adams, Karen Elson, Madison Stubbington, Florence Welch, and Shaun White—these are today’s fire starters.
Best known for his shoulder-length locks throughout the Harry Potter films, the Dublin-born Domhnall Gleeson (UPPER) has since been experimenting with a clean-cut look (in last year’s About Time), floppy curls (in Frank, with Maggie Gyllenhaal and Michael Fassbender, out this month); he’s even gone blond (as an American POW in the Angelina Jolie–directed Unbroken, which opens on Christmas Day). No word yet on the hairdo for his most anticipated job, in J. J. Abrams’s Star Wars: Episode VII. “It’s all I want to talk about, of course, but literally I’m only allowed to say how excited I am.”
(LOWER) Shaun White’s mane of auburn tresses gave the two-time Olympic gold medalist snowboarder (and and X Games-winning skateboarder) his first epithet—the Flying Tomato—and remains his signature physical trait, even as he’s cut it back for a more grown-up look. These days, however, it seems White is ever more likely to be seen rocking those locks on tour with his band Bad Things, which released its debut album earlier this year.
