Avril Lavigne Talks Hair and Personal Style

FFN_f_51252334 - Avril Lavigne Talks Hair and Personal Style

On what makes her beautiful:

“I like to have long hair. I wear it down a lot, especially because I have more of a tomboyish style. I’m a shy person, so my hair is maybe a safety net. I’m not sure, but I’ve always loved long hair.”

On her style over the years:

“When I was a teenager, I had stick-straight hair, black eyes, Dickies, vintage T-shirts. For my second album, I started wearing bondage pants, shopping at Gothic stores, black streak in my hair. For me, that was growth. For my record The Best Damn Thing, I put pink in my hair and wore heels and dresses.”

On her fans copying her signature looks:

“It’s flattering! It’s always cool when I start a new look for an album and it catches on with the fans, and they start showing up to the concert dressed how I am.”

On her biggest beauty risk:

“I’ve always wanted to shave one side of my head, but it took me about four years to get the nerve. I was in Paris one night, andI was hanging out with [Marilyn] Manson, and I was like, ‘Let’s shave my head!’ He shaved my head, and I finally did it. It was so easy. I thought growing it out would be a way bigger pain in the a** than it actually was. I grew it out because I was married.”

… says 29 year-old Avril in Allure.

    I’ve always been pretty sure that she wears whatever her management tells her to..

    She looks pretty rough. She’s obviously gained weight, but it’s moreso her face that looks rough. I don’t know why, but the first thing I thought is “She looks like she drinks a lot”

    And that comment about her hair is hilarious “I grew it out because I was married”…. I’m pretty sure that’s a BS story so she could name-drop Marilyn Manson and sound hardcore, the shaved-head thing was big a couple of years ago, I’m pretty sure if she had done it she/her marketing team would have capitalized on how badass and rebellious she is.

    I really just… Dislike her. So, so much.

      My friends live beside her mom..and anyone I knew that went to school with her says she a lil dirty brat.

    • Fabeuless

      Agree. I have never been impressed with her or her shtick. Also, this is her second marriage, she’s been “married” for like a decade now.

  • Linda

    Always thought she was cute, but thats about, have never been listenting to her music or anything. She was just a “big deal” when I was a a tween.

  • MerryHappy

    She was a manufactured pop (almost no emphasis on) punk mess when being a gospel singer didn’t work out so everything about her image was made for her. And shopping at Hot Topic doesn’t make you goth, it makes you contrived. There is nothing in her bones that can push the envelope. She is incapable. She lives neatly folded inside the envelope. If she could grow up and stop trying to be a commodity, then maybe she could grow as an artist and actually make good music and find something decent to wear. It’s a shame because she looks good in the pictorial, I don’t see why she is clinging to her juvenile fame. Just own it. You were manufactured. No real punk ever listened to you. You are hot a hardcore rocker. If she could accept it she could actually make music that people may want to listen to. You don’t have to be badas$ to be likable. Look at Adele, Florence & The Machine Rilo Kiley etc. They’re likable and offbeat.

    • lc

      I agree with you on everything here. When she first came out on to the scene, I was in high school. None of the punk kids liked her, I remember one guy telling me that she was touting herself as “unique and original…and she’s got a sock on her arm” (in the “I’m With You” video). Lol, needless to say, no one from that crowd really took her seriously. I remember telling my friend back then who was obsessed with her that I thought she was a “poser” and manufactured, lol.

      • lc

        Lol, I meant in the “Complicated” video.

      • MerryHappy

        ME TOO! Because I was soooo cool and listened to old AFI and The Used and Death Cab and she was just SUCH a poser in the early 2000’s and if a friend admitted they listened to her, the others would rescue them from “lame” music by giving them a Brand New CD. Then I dropped the aforementioned bands when they “sold out” and became “emo-poser-darlings”… I was a complicated teenager. Haha.
        If she could understand that it is no longer 2003, she could do something with her music that people like.

        • Emily

          hahaha this was so me, to a T. All of those bands plus Coheed and Cambria. 😀

          • MerryHappy

            Lmao. Memories. Kill Hannah and shiny toy guns too.you’re only allowed to be so obnoxious once, right?

          • Emily

            A million “yes”es to all of this. Totally saw Shiny Toy Guns in concert, that chick was majorly annoying.

            Also, I’m a 26 year old mom and preschool teacher now and I have half of my head shaved (because preschool teachers are so hardcore, Avril) and i didn’t have to think about it for four years or make a big deal about it. It’s so funny to me that she tries to promote herself as a rocker and yet she is terrified to make a silly hair decision? Rock/punk is all about not giving a BLEEP.

            Also, how mad does it make you when someone lumps you into the category of ‘hipster’ ten years later? HA.

          • MerryHappy

            Small world! I’m studying to teach elementary! I get the hipster thing daily since I live in portland, it’s almost considered a given here haha. But yeah generation that liked rock/punk/alt once we grew up everyone started calling us hipsters! In Portland teacherstattoos, piercings, and different hair and its no thing at all. If I wanted to change my hair I would too, besides she has the money to have it done professionally and fix it if it gets messed up. It’s okay to like having long hair, Avril. Nothing wrong with that!

          • lc

            Yep me too lol, and FFTL, etc..

          • MerryHappy

            YESSS. I remember all of that. It was great. I remember telling someone “I’ll wear your skin as a suit… your friends will like you more than they used to.”
            I miss 15. It was only ten years ago! haha

          • lc

            Yep, same here! Haha

          • Stefani

            hahaha – from first to last… that brings back memories!

    • wonderwoman21

      Co-signing everything you said MerryHappy!

      I was in middle school when sk8r boi and complicated came out; all these poseur punk girls at my school were into her (and good charlotte and fake piercings lol). I was more into gangsta rap back then but later got into rock and actual punk rock, i even married a punk rock musician (no, not derrick whibley jk).

      • MerryHappy

        Lol! Uggghhh. Good Charlotte was the band I hated most I thought they were so lane and

        • lc

          Yeah Good Charlotte were the worst. I liked them for about a month, then realized they were super posers lol.

  • Jessica

    Just GROW UP and stop with the disgusting eye make up. Seriously you’re nearly 30 now

  • MissMarilyn

    Maybe its because I kind of grew up listening to her but I really like avril lavigne!! She’s gained weight but not like SO much and she still looks good imo. I love her hair. I think it’s beautiful

  • lc

    She looks nice in the photo shoot.

    • MerryHappy

      She does she looks really nice. Her hair is a perfect blonde for her pale skin.

      • lc

        Yeah, she should just try to be an artist, if she did this all the time, she could be very pretty.

  • Guest

    Never listened to her music; she’s got a great hair and cute face btb. I remember in high school that I didn’t take her seriously either.

  • woof

    i fear she will never grow out of that 16 year old emo goth i hate my parents look. so cringey.

  • lovelikeu

    never liked her. the dress in the first picture is unflattering and just ewwww…

  • cameron

    “I was hanging out with Marilyn Manson..” I’m jealous; I wanna hang out with Marilyn Manson.
    “I grew it out because I was married.” or maybe you grew it out because you wanted to? lmao marriage is a crap excuse

  • Guest

    I’m curious how this woman will look in 10 years. I mean… She’s 29. She’s not going to wear gothic makeup forever right? I don’t like it because it reminds me of myself as a preteen. I have to admit, I absolutely despise her music. And I don’t find her anymore attractive than every other poser, “hardcore,” high school girl.

    I wish I could say something positive about her, but she just seems so fake to me.

  • Katie

    That red dress is disgustingly unflattering.

  • menta

    i used to love her in the skater boy era (lol i was young), she was different somehow but i just can’t take her seriously now. it is like this girl can’t grow up, she still acts like she was 20. i can easily see her wearing pink skull printed clothes in her 40s..

  • laujo

    I think she looks quite young for 29, could be 20 as well…not even a sign of a wrinkle 🙂
