Despite Texas' reputation for big hair and bad taste, it is home of the national arbiter of good and bad celebrity hairstyles.
Long blond curls work for singer Carrie Underwood.
Sally Beauty Holdings Inc., the Denton company with $2.4 billion in annual sales, has released its annual survey on celebrity hair.
Texas ties abound: No. 1 Carrie Underwood was romantically linked with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (current flame Jessica Simpson was No. 4), while No. 2 Eva Longoria hails from Corpus Christi. Denzel Washington (who was in Marshall recently for his movie, The Great Debaters) was the top male.
The worst celebrity hairstyles of 2007 belonged to Britney Spears (from Louisiana) and Kid Rock (Michigan), according to the online survey of 1,000 people, commissioned by Sally Beauty and conducted by MarketTools in November.
Maybe Texas isn't so tasteless after all.
