Lady Gaga's Wigs, Sandra Bullock's Highlights & More In This Week's Best & Worst Beauty (PHOTOS)

Dear Lady Gaga, we think it's time you get a new wigologist.

The "Applause" singer landed among this week's worst beauty looks twice because of unflattering hair pieces she wore at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards and on a promo tour in London. (Maybe she should hook up with celebrity hairstylist Oscar James, the man behind Nicki Minaj's new 'dos, or get tips from Wendy Williams.)

Meanwhile, stars such as Sandra Bullock, Ciara and Nicole Scherzinger had much better hair (and makeup) days sporting tousled and layered brunette strands with face-framing highlights. Looks like they're all ready for fall.

See our picks for the best and worst beauty looks this week and tell us if you agree.

BEST: Georgia May Jagger

The Hudson Jeans spokesmodel put a modern spin on old Hollywood beauty with her retro waves, graphic cat-eye liner and berry-stained lips. And her jeweled ear cuff adds the right amount of bling.

BEST: Sandra Bullock

Va-va-voom! Bullock is serving '70s glam with her sultry, smokey eyes, center-parted waves and pale pink lipstick. Her rich hair color warms up her complexion and balances out her neon pink dress.

BEST: Nicole Scherzinger

Now we see why the "X-Factor" judge is the face of Herbal Essences. Scherzinger sports shampoo commercial-worthy hair with glowy skin (is that from coconut oil?), lush lashes and glossy lips.

BEST: Katy Perry

If you direct your attention up from Perry's glittery leopard Emanuel Ungaro minidress for a few minutes, you can marvel in her minimal makeup and sleek high ponytail. This pared-down look brings out the "Roar" singer's blue-grey eyes.

BEST: Ciara

When you've got a rockin' body like Ciara, it's best to keep it simple with loose waves, defined brows, matte makeup and nude lips.

BEST: Ali Larter

In our world, we would call this the 5-Minute Face. You can easily recreate Larter's luminous look by focusing on your brows, lashes, cheeks and lips. That's it!

WORST: Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga's pretty made-up face gets buried underneath that ratty wig covered in seashells and an ill-placed blue velvet hat. We know it's a costume, but we still wish she would have tossed the hair piece.

WORST: Sarah Hyland

The "Modern Family's" crunchy curly hair makes her look much older than her 22 years. Less hair product equals more hair movement.

WORST: Hayden Panettiere

Is that a wig? Well, that's what we initially thought when Panettiere debuted this blunt bangs hairstyle. The heavy foundation and burgundy lip color don't help at all.

WORST: Deena Cortese

Ladies, let this be an example on how not to apply false eyelashes. The "Jersey Shore" star's falsies are perched way above her lash line, and the white eyeshadow magnifies the mistake.

WORST: Toccara Jones

It deeply saddens us to see the "America's Next Top Model" alum fall short with this overly made-up look. Between the bright pink lipstick and splotchy sunless tanner, Jones is in need of a beauty intervention.

WORST: Lady Gaga

No one should be able to tell that you're wearing a lace-front wig. The high-shine finish of Lady Gaga's fake hair is giving us a Halloween store vibe, and that matte orange lip color makes her teeth appear yellow.
