Rogaine names its best-tressed list

The Oscars weren’t the only hot-shot awards last week.

Out of Kalamazoo, Mich., comes a list of winners of the first Rogaine Hair Awards, which salutes “the best-tressed male and female stars” at this year’s Academy Awards ceremony.

Michael Bolton was honored for best hair comeback; fullest hair awards went to Arnold Schwarzenegger and Minnie Driver; best-tressed couple was Kim Basinger & Alec Baldwin. Halle Berry was given the Rogaine Hair Raising Award for most outlandish hairstyle.

A spokeswoman, who was one of the half-dozen company workers who voted on the prestigious awards, said Berry’s ‘do “was all over the place. It’s the new style: unswept and unkept.”

Coming from Rogaine, Bolton’s “hair comeback” could be taken two ways: Are they implying his hair is coming back from use of their product? “That’s not what we meant,” said the spokeswoman. “Rogaine does makes your hair come back, but it’s a better look for him, that’s how we meant it.”
