Top Trend Setters - Looking Back At 2009

The new year is already flying by, but before the first month of the brand new year is completely gone, we want to take a moment to reflect on some beauty trendsetters in 2009 and think about what may be in store for us this year.

Susan Boyle: With all of her growing success, came a much needed grooming of the eyebrows and a pleasing makeover. Why do we pick her as number one? Because she is a great case-in-point that there are no lost causes. Everyone can be beautiful with a little help from their friends.

Drew Barrymore: She isn't afraid to take risks. Even now, in her thirties, she has been every color under the sun (almost) and has made them not only work, but made them beautiful. She even looked great with the ends of her hair almost black. She proves to us that, with just a little bit of a makeup, we can pull off almost any haircolor...if we dare.

Michelle Obama: No matter your political opinion, one thing we can all agree on is that the first lady has been a big trendsetter since she stepped onto the scene. Every magazazine is watching (and, generally, applauding) what she does with fashion. She is always put together. We all know she has a team to help her pull it off, but she has definitely inspired many people to find a hairstyle that looks great and classy on them.

Kate Gosselin: She has been in the news way too much this past year. Even she would agree with that. In the end, her hairstyle had a negative effect on styles this year. Her look, which was first imitated by the masses all over the nation, became the focus of a national, Halloween-time joke. There were so many Kate wigs and everyone was dressing up with (and mostly mocking) the signature Kate hairstyle. One positive though, her style was close to something that could be wearable and look good for others, with a little refinement. So, her style gave us a starting place to work with and we were able to achieve many versions of the style that were actually really cute and flattering.

Megan Fox: She inspired many women to go back to the dark. She made brunettes sexy again and for that we thank her! Nothing wrong with embracing your roots...literally.

Do you have other people that you think were a standout in trendsetting this year? Drop us a line and share your thoughts! We would love to hear from you.

We look forward to watching the new trends catch on and take shape during 2010, and seeing how they evolve by the end of the year. It looks like there may be some positive changes this year...
