Because it’s not hard enough being a 12-year-old girl with hair that doesn’t look like the other kids’ (or maybe because it’s National Racism Week?), teachers are also ripping on the appearance of Florida tweenager Vanessa VanDyke.
While some might have been too taken with her Jean Paul Gaultier couture gown to notice, Rihanna made a major beauty statement with her wrap-around hairstyle last night at the 2013 American Music Awards.
For those unschooled in food-related hairstyles or antipodean savory pastry snacks, the ‘mince and cheese’ was a look popularized at the tail end of the ‘90s, with brown on top and blonde underneath.
Watch out Chloe Nørgaard, you’re about to have a lot more competition in the harlequin hair department.
Uniqlo is providing us with a sizable amount of drive to sacrifice a few Z’s and step up our hair game.
When we weren’t too busy getting an art history lesson from Milan Fashion Week’s spellbinding prints, we were taking notes on the beauty trends that not only struck our fancy, but also begged for some D.I.Y. action. From Gucci’s Ziggy Stardust eyes to Dolce & Gabbana’s flower and hardware-adorned coifs, here are our favorite beauty trends from Italy’s fashion capital.
Real or faux, we saw heaps of hair on New York’s runways this week — and we can say confidently, we’ve never been more motivated to steer clear of the snooze button and spend an extra hour in the morning teasing, gelling, curling, or braiding to achieve one of the following elaborate coifs.
November is one of the most beautiful months of the year. It’s almost time to bust our Mariah Carey’s Christmas CD (ha, jokes, it’s already permanently synched to my phone) and it’s the season where even the grinchiest of Starbucks haters become hypnotized by the scent of Pumpkin Spice Lattes. It’s also Movember, which, as a firm believer in male facial hair, is a glorious thing. Movember just makes perfect sense. Chilly weather, men with mustaches and charitable stimuli are pretty much a holy trifector.
The Bold Italic put the “dude” in updo by styling mens hair in a slew of classic styles including hippie wedding, sass bun, junior prom, mother of the bride, and even Mormon prom.
In a sea of no-fuss beach waves, ponytails, and top knots, one will always stand out with a polished, vintage-inspired ‘do. Believe it or not, there was a time when women didn’t dream of leaving the house unless their hair had been set to perfection (and if you don’t believe me, take my notoriously vain 87-year-old grandmother’s word for it). Lucky for us, there are plenty of beauty mavens with an onset of nostalgia, who have taken to YouTube to share their tips and tricks for getting the retro look. And trust us, these styles are worth slaving over.
Ever since we first laid eyes on Oprah’s epic Diana-Ross inspired cover for O magazine’s September issue, on which she dons 3.5 lbs of hair, we’ve become infatuated with the kinkiest of all hair styles: the afro.
ICYMI, though there’s really no way you could have, Beyoncé cut all her hair off last week. We were among the hundreds of websites who made lighthearted, web-themed jest of the situation, but not even a week later we’ve pretty much forgotten about it. Until we dug up a
humorous really dumb survey that landed in our inboxes over the weekend.
It’s tough keeping the perfect shade of blonde all year round. Particularly when hair does stuff like fade and grow, and when we have the tendency to impulse-buy quick fix bleaches from drug stores. One guy who knows all about the dramas of being blonde is Kim Vō. He reps the shade himself, and it’s his hands behind the hair of Hollywood elites including Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson, Katherine Heigl and Dakota Fanning. What we wanted to know, though, is how to achieve a Summer 2013 blonde on a non-celebrity budget – and how to do it without turning your hair to frizzy straw.
I don’t know if blondes have more fun — the closest thing I’ve been to brunette in the last nine years is a horrific shade of red/black that’s unfortunately stamped in my passport – but they definitely spend more money. It’s not just the touch-ups either: It’s all the fancy products you need to buy afterwards to try and stop your hair snapping off at the ends every time you touch it with a hairbrush.
If our humidity-stricken hair has taught us anything this summer, it’s that you must be creative when it comes to keeping your tresses under your own supremacy. Whether it be adorning our hair with tactfully tied scarves or teasing it until our volume is impressively in place, we’ve come up with 12 humidity-masking hair tricks that make a lot more sense than a $50 blowout. Your mane and wallet can thank us later.
Floppy sunhats and beanies? So last season. It’s all about hats made from human hair now, so you better put any drastic haircut thoughts on the backburner – you don’t want to be limiting your options.
This morning our office was bursting with excitement over the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down DOMA. Between this groundbreaking step towards equality, and the fact that it’s Gay Pride Week, we’re literally seeing rainbows and are tempted to give our hair a polychromatic makeover. But before we commit, here are 15 of our favorite techno-(hair)colored magazine covers and editorials:
Color us obsessed with Chloe Nørgaard. We’ve
lurked stumbled across her on the gram before, but it’s her interview on WWD’s latest episode of Model Call that has us wanting to dye our hair Rainbow Brite, put on some deep house, and stick watermelons on our heads.
I’ve had long hair since, well, ever. But between Alexa Chung‘s shoulder-length crop, Daria Werbowy‘s badass bob, and the debut of “The Karlie”, those extra inches were feeling heavier by the day. And while I’ve mulled over the idea of a big cut in the back of my mind, it’s never gotten any farther than that. Until last week, that is, when I interviewed Vidal Sassoon Pro Series ambassador Ben Skervin, the master hairstylist behind some of Hollywood’s best crops, including those of Keira Knightley and Emma Watson, and he convinced me (somewhat inadvertently, I think) to take the plunge.
As we waded through the deluge of news out of Cyprus this weekend concerning the nation’s financial struggles, and the endless bailout discussions being held in Brussels, one thing kept jumping out at us that really had nothing to do with bank insolvency or Russian deposits — Christine Lagarde‘s hair.
