Celebrities are often seen by the common folk as “untouchables” – just a glimmer in the eye of a small fry. It’s hard to relate to a person who has bodyguards and is constantly followed around by the paparazzi, has an entourage, and rendezvous with friends in exotic destinations (and other difficult words that spell the easy life). We may all wish we had the “Papenren” (paparazzi+entourage+rendezvous) going on in the corner of our little, insignificant world, but most of us are relegated to the simple Nine-to-Five grind, debt-laden, trying to get popular on Facebook routine – a much more lame-sounding “Nidepoface” (Nine-to-Five+debt-laden+popular on Facebook) existence, to be sure.
Even-ing the Playing Field
But take heart, it seems that the stars are trying to come down to the level of our meager existence a little bit. You’ll see, at least on occasion those in the Limelight are showing a willingness to be in the Lemonlight at least long enough to be caught in the act, unwittingly (or not). Coming to a virtual theater near you are super models, singers, the famous-for-being-famous, and other too-hot-to-trots wagging their shags, taking to the streets with what we would perceive as their very own “Nidepoface” hair day. And they’re wearing it like it’s the Mane Event – unabashedly. So why are they doing it? As a muckety-muck, wouldn’t it seem to be a huge PR faux pas to purposefully allow yourself to be au natural (from the neck up)?
Here are 6 reasons why our friends on the other side of the fence from us are flaunting an unkempt hairstyle, wearing “tousled salad” strands, and Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It:

1. I’m just like you – I put on my pants one leg at a time; you and I are no different, really. I wake up without makeup on, just like you do. (Only most of us wake up disheveled and don’t look so stellar without the war paint)

Own Your BedHead
Do you own your bedhead? The doors are open, it’s time to host pictures of YOUR bedhead! Crank out a picture of your most endearing bed head to send us via the Own Your Bedhead! widget for inclusion in the Bedhead Gallery.
Which celebrities would you like to see sporting their bedheads? Let us know so we can track them down and politely coax them to own their bedheads as well in the Celebrity Bedheads section of the site. Alternatively, if you can play “Tag Team” with us and get a celeb to own their bedhead and take their pic with the Own Your Bedhead! widget, their might be a little something in it for you.
Kids don’t mind sharing their bedheads, in fact whose child hasn’t run outside in their pajamas (or worse, if you catch my drift)? But, that is what makes them so endearing to us as parents. They are nearly INHIBITIONLESS! And what parent or grandparent doesn’t get a thrill photographing their cute kids/grandkids? A standing invitation: If “mine are cuter than yours”, prove it — send their widgitized bedhead pic to us for inclusion in the Kids’Bedheads gallery.
A little tepid about the whole bedhead idea? On Duo Bedheads we’ll help break down your walls and bring you out of your tortoise shell by allowing you to take a pic of your bedhead with someone else. Don’t want to be Uno? Then Go Duo. Send us a pic with the Own Your Bedhead! widget that features you and somebody else together. Harmonious or disharmonious bedheads; either way, we’ll love ‘em!
Before and After Bedheads
Are you just a little bit vain? Come on, admit it! For those who don’t want to show their bedheads without also having a side-by-side Updo of what they look like when they present their very best self to the world — the Before and After Bedheads page is for them. Show us what you look like with your bedhead, and then take another pic of what you look like when you’re ready for the Mane Event, or in other words, ready to paint the town, looking UtterlyFabulous!
Is owning your bedhead a little too personal for you? Don’t worry, you can still contribute! Volunteer another member of your family — your pet! Does your dog or cat have a shameless sheen when the sun starts to shine? Get a little widgey with it and send us a pic of your pet to post. Who knows, it may end up on Pinterest! Animal Bedheads are the best!
Who can You Get?
So you’ve already owned your bedhead. Now it’s somebody else’s turn in your Circle of Influence. Who could use the EXTROVERTEDNESS the most? You’ve now got a new mission — it’s your calling to kindly prevail upon a loved one to own their bedhead, too! Bring your hunk out of his Man Cave, your lady out of her Sewing Room, or your grandma out of her Pistol Purse, and get them to Participate with a “capital P”! If they won’t do it alone, that’s what Going Duo is for, remember? Who can You Get? is based upon getting someone in your life who would normally blend in to shed the Camoflauge and socialize by owning their bedhead along with the rest of us!
