Big Hair: Is This A Thing That’s Coming Back?

This week, both Sarah Jessica Parker and “X-Factor” judge Cheryl Cole were spotted out sporting extremely big hair. We’re not really sure how to feel about this. On the one hand, big hair reminds us of ’60s bouffants and Brigitte Bardot. On the other, it also reminds us of our 5th grade teacher in Fort Worth, Texas — Miss Bobbie Jo Hibben, who meticulously matched her bouffant bows to her handkerchiefs to her skirts and her purses. And that was not a good look. What do you think? Are you pro- or anti-big hair? [Stylelist] Keep reading »

Hold up. You thought Lady Gaga was some original creation plucked from the bowels of New York City’s Lower East Side? We’re willing to bet that she got more than a little inspiration from the wild and wonderful world of the Eurovision song contest. What’s the Eurovision song contest, you ask? It’s just the strangest, campiest Euro tradition ever. Begun in 1956, the Eurovision competition pits nation against nation in a battle of vocal chords and froofy costumes. Past winners include Finnish troll rock band Lordi, French-Canadian dream princess (singing for Switzerland) Celine Dion, and ABBA. Of course. After the jump, check out some of this year’s Eurovision competitors–and their ridonkulous outfits.

Kate Middleton’s Wedding Hair Was Practiced … With A $10 Tiara

Now that the Royal Wedding of the Millennium is over, experts are analyzing every little piece of information about the big event. Like the news that Kate Middleton‘s hair dressers practiced her big day ‘do with a $10 tiara purchased at a friggin’ Claire’s Accessories. Oh hellz no, the plastic crown didn’t touch Kate’s locks–it was tested on the head of an assistant, in a dark back room, with the windows taped over, to ensure that absolutely no one would see the hair work in action before the big day. Apparently it all paid off — Middleton’s hairdresser, James Pryce, won big props for keeping Kate’s long and loose. But the look was slightly more complex than it appeared. The real tiara — loaned to Kate by the Queen — was actually stitched into a braid in Kate’s hair. Ingenious! [Telegraph UK] Keep reading »
