Jennifer Morrison People's Choice Awards 2012 Look: An Open Letter In Regards To All That Hair And Makeup (POLL)

Dear Jennifer Morrison,

You are beautiful, but the hair and makeup you wore at the 2012 People's Choice Awards is well... not so much. I understand that celebrities are often surrounded by "yes men," but as a proud member of the "no girlfriend" club I feel that I should explain where you went wrong.

Let me begin with the ballerina bun. While it is a no-fuss hairstyle, your updo is quite distracting. A smaller topknot or classic chignon would have been just as simple and sophisticated.

Moving on to makeup. The heavy eyeliner and false eyelashes framing those gorgeous bedroom eyes make it seem as though you're literally dozing off. And what could have been a perfect red lip moment ended up... worn off.

Less is more when sporting a ballerina bun, according to TRESemme celebrity stylist Jeanie Syfu.

Syfu explains, "Since this hairstyle is putting attention to your face, try to emphasize one feature like a pretty lip, strong, groomed brows, lightly contoured cheekbones or a sultry, smoky eye."

I hope that before you step out for the upcoming Golden Globes, you'd take these words of advice into consideration and nail your look from head to toe.

Yours Truly,
Dana L. Oliver
