The first thing that popped into my head when I saw photos of Taylor Swift arriving at last night’s Brit Awards: That feathered hairstyle is so '80s—and so Princess Diana, to be precise. Lo and behold, as soon as I started searching for photographic proof, I came upon this photo of Di at a film premiere in 1981 (when she was still Lady Diana Spencer). Mind. Blown.
Last week my beauty life changed. You know those magical moments when you try a new product and it just works SO brilliantly that you know it's a keeper? I interviewed Stila's Sarah Lucero on the brand's new trio of eyebrow products last week and, at the time, had experimented with only the pencil. Then I used the gel and it seriously was like the world stopped
The curls the model walked down the runway with at the Blugirl show at Milan Fashion Week were fantastic. Just fantastic. Created by Holli Smith and the Oribe team using a thin curling iron to create springy locks that were then brushed out, they were full and voluminous and cloud-like. BLUGIRL Messy curls and beautiful lips by @thevalgarland in Milan today with a
I just learned something truly shocking—did you know that Julianna Margulies wears a wig for her role as Alicia Florrick on The Good Wife? On The Late Show With David Letterman, the naturally curly haired actress revealed that she wears the wig in order to save herself endless hours in the styling chair (not to mention spare her some serious heat-styling damage).
It's been a big week for cool ponytail tricks—first, we had all these awesome ideas from the Oscars, and now we have this Guido-Palau-for-Redken-created look from the Prada show at Milan Fashion Week. The ponytails were pulled up high and secured right on top of the head. Then the tail was pulled to one side, where a sparkly gem barrette was tucked in to both pin the
Thank goodness for Instagram. Without it, we may have never seen the detail on the hairstyleMargot Robbie wore on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night. And that would be a real crime because it's kind of amazing. You can see a hint of it here, but you'd never know exactly what was going on, right? Well, the hairstylist behind it, Sarah Potempa, gave us a
You really can't go wrong with rose-gold eyeshadow when it comes to creating looks that quietly smolder—it's warm, it's flirty, and it's Victoria's Secret-model approved. Elsa Hosk wore it out yesterday to promote the brand's swimwear line. Softer than black, girlier than gray, and shier than gold, rose gold is THE ANSWER. If you're suddenly craving some for your
Out at an awards show in London last night, Taylor Swift proved just how much bangs (or a lack thereof) can totally change the shape of your face—she looked so different with her fringe brushed to the side, it was like she was a whole new Swift. Bangs are always a game-changer, but for some people they have the ability to change their looks completely (see: Suki
Kim Kardashian just revealed to intothegloss.com that she washes her hair only every five days, detailing her plan in full like this: "We start out with a blowout on day one, then we go into a messier vibe the next day, and then we flatiron it and do a really sleek look on day three since that requires a little oil in the hair. Day four could be a slicked-back ponytail,
It's been a winter of record-low temps and record-high snowbanks (see: these eerie photos of a glacier-like Manhattan), and while retailers would have us believe spring's just around the corner, deep down, we know we have miles and miles to go. Which could lead to some sad, sad, not-at-all glowy skin. So I touched base with the best-qualified dermatologist I could think
You remember when I named the lone lock of hair we've been seeing in red-carpet updos recently "the orphan"?January Jones took that idea up a notch last night at the The Last Man on Earth premiere with a mega-orphan. This "leave a lock behind" policy has been slowly gaining momentum, making for a 2015 on the tendril that no one saw coming. And, hey, it is a shortcut to
We beauty girls have come to associate Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson with enviable bangs and sexy-yet-sweet, muted lipstick colors, but while shooting promos for her turn hosting Saturday Night Live this coming weekend, she turned up the heat. Check out this behind-the-scenes photo posted by makeup artist Pati Dubroff. A photo posted by patidubroff
The highlights were a, well, highlight of the appearance Jasmine Tookes and Lily Aldridge made promoting the Sexiest Push-Ups and the Victoria's Secret Swim Special at Sunset Marquis Hotel and Villas in Los Angeles, thanks to the sunshine. So if you were looking for a hair color strategy for spring, you'll want to see these two ideas. Tookes' highlights are thin ribbons
