Alyson Hannigan: Her Best Hair?

Published in: Hair, Just For Fun


Halloween is but a few hours away, and I’ve been watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer reruns to get fired up!


I’m a huge fan of the show and have been for years… Love all of the characters, but a favorite’s Willow the witch (Buffy’s BFF), played by actress Alyson Hannigan.

Alyson Lee Hannigan (born March 24, 1974) was 23 in 1997 when the pagan stars aligned and she landed a job on the show. Even though she appeared in several commercials and even a feature film (My Stepmother is an Alien, LOL!) before Buffy, it was her portrayal of Willow that made her a star.

This one time, at band camp… Fans may remember Alyson as the nerdy flute-playing vixen from 1999’s American Pie or recognize her from How I Met Your Mother (in season 5 now on CBS).

Buffy also played a fateful part in Alyson’s personal life. She and actor Alexis Denisof (who played the bumbling Wesley Wyndham-Price) married in 2003 and just welcomed their daughter, Satyana, on Alyson’s 35th birthday.

I’ll always have a soft spot for her red hair from the Buffy years, but I think she looks great as a brunette, too.

Which of Alyson's hairstyles do you like best?

    She looks so cute with the bob, but I prefer the long wavy locks. God I envy her for her stunning hair sooo much!
    Happy Halloween, y’all 😀

    I totally loved Buffy the show and the nice Willow*scary mary when she went dark! Best hair is definitely on How I Met Your Mother, though. I liked it in Season Two best.

  3. Mariah says:

    I’ll always like her good old Buffy haircut! #1!

  4. Jenna says:

    I love Willow!!!! I went with #4, I definitely prefer her as a redhead. I had no idea she married the actor who plays Wesley!

  5. DonnaN says:

    I love #1, but I actually chose #9….she has that older “adult” look

    Aww, I love Alyson too! This was a hard choice. I love #1, she’s adorable in the red bob. Overall, I think #5 the dark brown may be the best day-to-day look. Bit I voted for # 9 – va-va-voom! I always thought Alyson was absolutely adorable, but she is simply stunning, even sexy with the long wavy reddish style.

    You’ve inspired me to get all my stuff done early today and then have my own Buffy marathon once the trick-or-treaters are finished (I have a cold – no partying for me tonight – boo) A couple of BtVS episodes (Once More with Feeling, to start and then see where it goes) sounds like the perfect medicine.

    Maybe 8..based on the color. It just seems most natural 🙂

    Hope you have a great one tonight!
