Jennifer Garner in Max Mara at the “Draft Day” Premiere

Posted on April 08, 2014

We realize all eyes are going to go straight to the jumpsuit, but can we talk about the hair for a second?


Jennifer Garner attends the premiere of “Draft Day” at the Regency Bruin Theatre in Los Angeles, California in a Max Mara black jumpsuit paired with a Dana Rebecca Designs bangle, Melissa Kaye Jewelry necklace, rings by Graziela Gems and EF Collection, and a Roger Vivier clutch.

We get why ladies of both the star and non-star persuasion might like to sport extensions. They give you an instant boost of volume and length without all that pesky waiting for it to grow out naturally. But the whole “Why, yes. My hair actually does grow out from my ears” way of styling it only ever calls attention to how fake it is. It always looks to us like the hair version of those feather earrings you can buy out of vans in a parking lot at a concert. All this fluff and volume that starts pretty much right at the ears, in a manner no real hair ever grows. If you can’t spot it, start at the ends of her hair resting on her shoulders and boobs and follow the strands up. They clearly aren’t growing out from her scalp and are tucked in under her real hair. They always look like cocker spaniel ears to us.

It’s a ubiquitous look and it’s probably not going to die soon, but we guarantee we’ll all look back at this period the way we look back on bouffant styles of the ’60s now. It’s going to look very dated very quickly once hairstyles shift away from this look.

We don’t mean to pick on her. This isn’t the worst example of it we’ve seen. It’s just that lately, we’ve started growing tired of the look and how easy it’s become to spot.

In fashion news, that jumpsuit is terrible.
