The Hairstyles All Men Will Want in 2011 - UK Net Guide

From the UK Net Guide:

Hairstyles come and go with the seasons but many survive the test of time and maintain popularity through celebrity endorsement and classic styles that never go out. Every year that passes, another hairstyle is born. Most men simply prefer a simple fade or buzz cut when they go to get their haircuts; however, styles are changing and more men are beginning to experiment and latch on to some of the newer trends that have been began to become popular. Several men’s hairstyle trends have made their ubiquitous appearances in 2011.

The newly minted Charlie's Angel says she's ready for anything. But there is one kind of case she's not interested in -- wayward husbands.

Act Two: Former Jersey Shore's Angelina in 'Mob Candy' Mag

At first blush, it looks like she blew it -- quitting not one but two seasons of Jersey Shore, which went on to become a mega hit. Angelina couldn't have known how successful the show would be when she walked out after a handful of episodes in the first season, but by season two, she should have known that, had she only sucked it up, she likely could've walked away with hugely profitable endorsement deals. But, as it turns out, she landed on her feet, though how high she goes now relies on her talent, her ability, not chance casting on a reality show.
As the High Low put it about season three of Jersey Shore: The show has made bona fide stars out of the group, with 8.45 million people tuning in to watch the show’s premiere.
Just look at Mike The Situation: According to Hollywood Reporter: "Breakout star Sorrentino (aka the Situation) has jumped at the opportunity to capitalize on his fame. By year's end [last year], the 29-year-old stands to earn more than $5 million, a source familiar with his finances told THR." And there are more seasons planned -- I think the cast is going to Italy, in fact (though if Mike will be with them is another matter -- see way below).

Snooki may be the one who really hit the jackpot though. Those pistachio nut commercials she appears in are part of a $20 million ad campaign by nut-grower Paramount Farms, according to the WSJ.

J-woww is hawking her own tanning-lotion line, among other things, including yoga videos and Ab Cut. Even Sammy, who was said to have the least development deals in the pipeline, at least has a fragrance going for her. See the supposedly full list here.
