The perfect nail salon should offer more than just a utilitarian, in-and-out service that spares you the stress of knocking over a bottle of OPI onto your hardwood floors (again). Ideally, it should stock a solid array of polishes, play a soothing Zen soundtrack that lulls you to sleep in the pedicure chair, have an excellent selection of recent magazine issues, and be known for paying and treating their highly-trained staff fairly.
Having recently walked the Vanity Fair Oscar Party red carpet with a pin-straight platinum bob (and inspiring us to fire up our straightening irons), Katy Perry has us rethinking our looks again with the debut of a new shaggy crop. The artfully messy pixie style—courtesy of Chris McMillan—accentuates her bone structure and gives us major Natalie Imbruglia […]
If you constantly fight your curly mane by cranking up your flat iron to the highest setting, you’re gonna want to listen up, because Nicole Kidman has some words of wisdom. The actress, who most recently delivered a show-stopping performance on HBO’s Big Little Lies, told WHO Magazine that she regrets altering her naturally curly hair. It turns out that even beauty icons like Kidman have insecurities, and she began altering her curls years ago because she longed to fit into Australia’s beauty stereotype.
Purple has always been associated with royalty... but when it comes to hair, we associate the color with the raddest risk takers all around the globe. Whether you're going moody or bright, it's a hue that works anytime, any place, and on anyone. Just search #purplehair on Instagram for proof.
When Gabrielle Union announced her new Flawless by Gabrielle Union haircare line in January, I can admit that I was pretty — no, VERY — excited. The actress' hair has always been enviably laid, and let's be honest: If there's a way to look anything like Gabrielle Union, I will gladly take that opportunity.
Only when she does it, it breaks the Internet thanks to her glorious natural hair texture. "That picture is recent!" Johnny Wright, Mrs. Obama's trusted hairstylist, exclusively confirms to Refinery29.
To name a few, stars like Katy Perry, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Allison Williams have all gone full-blown platinum recently, and it looks like the coolest color trend is only just getting started. The last time we spotted the Modern Family star, she was rocking a brunette hue with subtle, dusty blond highlights. The paps snapped photos of the star heading out of Nine Zero One salon — the same place responsible for the styles of Shay Mitchell, Vanessa Hudgens, Demi Lovato, and Emma Roberts — with a full head of blond.
Gigi Hadid shared an Instagram of a daringly short blond crop cut early on April 1st, leaving fans scratching their heads over the look. Many left comments asking Hadid if this was a joke and we're here to tell you: joke or not, it's almost certainly a wig. The look finds Hadid also taking her hair into a reddish, honey blonde color.
When she stepped out onto the red carpet, Rooney Mara showed off a brand-new 'do — and it's really short. Mara has had just about every length hair you can imagine. Mara's newest look is a short, polished pixie.
Earlier this morning, many of us sat in disgust while Fox News’ Bill O'Reilly, an alleged professional adult, made ugly remarks about U.S. Representative Maxine Waters. During a segment on Fox & Friends, a clip of Waters giving an impassioned speech addressing Trump voters was shown. Then, to further dispel the notion that maybe what audiences just heard was a mistake, he continued by asking the producers to pull up an image of James Brown.
All of my friends and family who wear their natural kinks and curls gave me a fair heads up about the maintenance and patience required when it comes to caring for natural hair. For my first twist-out ever, I had some assistance from celebrity stylist Vernon Francois (more on that later). My tired arms struggled to section off my thick mane for more uniform twists, and the lightweight cream that promised to make my curls pop?
Dyeing your strands can be one of the most experimental and fun beauty processes. Exemplified by the slew of color trends that constantly blow up on social media, the options are officially endless. We never thought we’d see the day when hair dye can actually change into different colors, but one data visualization scientist just came up […]
When the seasons change, so too does the hair color of women everywhere. Winter blues typically call for cooler, darker tones, but some ladies prefer an alternative route and like to switch it up a bit. Consider supermodel (and newfound denim designer via Mother) Miranda Kerr, who’s officially amongst those axing brunette roots as an option this season. […]
It’s no secret that actress Shay Mitchell is a beauty chameleon in every sense of the term. Aside from always taking risks with her makeup, we’ve seen her hair color and cut change within the same day. So when we caught up with her to chat about her new gig as the face of the Smashbox Cover Shot […]
While we love imagining Kate Middleton’s closet—lined with rows and rows of fabulous fascinators, heirloom hair accessories and Queen Elizabeth’s vintage tiaras—the Duchess of Cambridge continues to favor one accessory that makes her more endearing than ever: the butterfly clip. The ’90s staple—one that probably set her back a measly British pound and some change—has been a go-to for the royal on […]
Hair loss was initially more a male problem, however that no longer holds true. A recent report indicated that nearly 40% of the people with hair loss concerns are women. Genetic and medical conditions like hypothyroidism, autoimmune diseases, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), iron-deficiency anemia etc are also other factors that influence hair loss.
You know the drill: Spray dry shampoo onto your dirty roots and massage away the oil. If you really know what you’re doing, you might run a brush through your hair and hit it with a blow-dryer, too. Sounds like a great way to ditch the shampoo on those lazy days, right? Sure it helps, […]
Jessica Chastain has been the poster girl for redhead actresses since she appeared in the spotlight. We were shocked last month when she darkened her roots on set for a film in Toronto, but she still maintained a hint of of her signature color in the subtle dye job. That all changed over the weekend when she […]
