Loving Lauren Alaina's voice has always been a no-brainer, but I was also crazy about her gorgeous hair from the minute she stepped on the audition stage for American Idol. All those natural kinky waves and all that fabulous rich color with the dark minking underneath the blond. I actually took a picture of Alaina to my own stylist and asked her to copy the look. But Alaina now has a brand new look she revealed this weekend on her Facebook page. It's a lob: a long bob. And it's super blond and very sleek. Think Jennifer Aniston meets Gwyneth Paltrow. Alaina may be a superstar now, but she is still a teenage girl, so it makes sense that she'd want to play around with different looks. She even does her own hair while she's on the road. "That's my biggest distraction because I love to do stuff like that, so it just kind of keeps everything else off of my mind," she told CMT Radio. Somebody get that girl a flat iron.
