The Truth Behind Connie Britton’s Amazing Hair

Whether you know Connie Britton as Molly McMullen from “The Brothers McMullen,” Nikki Faber from “Spin City,” Tami Taylor from “Friday Night Lights,” or Rayna Jaymes from ABC’s new drama “Nashville,” one prominent characteristic of the actress may come to mind more than her uncanny ability to play strong women with sass: her hair.

That’s right, Britton’s long, flowy, light auburn tresses have inspired hair envy in her most ardent fans – and has even inspired one Twitter handle. Britton, however, seems to take it all in stride.

“Here’s the deal: I have fantastic people that I work with on the show who do their thing,” said Britton, who recently was in New York City to hand out care packages with Curel and Direct Relief International. Read more…

Danielle Fishel’s Style Transformation

We were first introduced to Danielle Fishel as the quirky Topanga Lawrence in “Boy Meets World” who starred as the love interest to Corey Matthews, played by Ben Savage. After seven years with the cast, the show ended and with it, Danielle’s (but really Topanga’s) iconic hair and style.

Fear not! It was announced that the “Girl Meets World” spin-off was in production and Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage will play a part in the series. In honor of Fishel’s return to the spotlight, we take a look back at the girl America (and Corey) fell in love with. Read more…

The $1 Solution For Whiter Teeth

There are many uses for hydrogen peroxide, it can even fight blemishes. Now, I’ve got another excellent use for this household antiseptic: It whitens teeth!! Safely, that is. I know the name is a little off-putting, (“hydrogen peroxide” doesn’t exactly sound like something you should put in your mouth) but the stuff you pick up at the drugstore comes in 3% form, making it safe to use orally.

Here’s how to use it: Mix two parts hydrogen peroxide with one part water and swish around in your mouth for about 30 seconds (or if you think your gums can handle it, take it straight). Spit it out and proceed to brush your teeth with a whitening toothpaste. That’s pretty much all there is to it!! Don’t be alarmed, though: Once in your mouth, the hydrogen peroxide will begin to foam up. Don’t freak out! Read more…

Why Mindy Kaling Is A True Man Repeller

“I have found it to be true that men tend to not understand or like sequins very much,” actress and writer Mindy Kaling said in an interview on Tuesday with Terry Gross on NPR’s “Fresh Air.” She continued, “Men don’t like the wedge shoe, I have noticed. Men don’t like the statement necklace or chunky, tribal jewelry.”

But, she hasn’t let this “unscientific research” have an impact on what she actually wears. Kaling explained her list is somewhat meaningless, “These are all the things, by the way, that I love, so the overlap in the Venn diagram of things that men hate for women to wear, and things that I love to wear, is almost full overlap … which is unfortunate for me.” Hey-o! Man repeller alert!

Are Fake Glasses A Good Thing?

Fake glasses or spectacles are the easiest fashion fix there is. Yesterday, after three meetings before 11 a.m. my fake specs came to the rescue when I dashed over to NYFW in the afternoon. Out of the door at 7:30 a.m. meant my hair was limp and clothes creased, but I felt brainy, busy and bright in my glasses. Looking round at the shows too, my guess is I am not the only one faking it.

Earlier this year, my optician made up some Hackett black-rimmed glasses for me — with clear lenses. They are similar to, but larger than my prescription readers and I love them. All through my last year at high school I wore a pair of glasses I had lied to my optician to get. They gave me a terrible headache, but looked great. Now, when I feel like being anonymous but it’s too dark for sunglasses, on go my fakes. Read more …

The Naked Face Project: I Went Without Makeup (But I Shouldn’t Have To)

Are mascara and lipstick a feminist barometer? Recently, talk about makeup has heated up this old debate about the sociological significance of putting on a little face paint. Hillary Clinton not wearing any? Obviously she’s above paying mind to her appearance. Kim Kardashian wearing a ton? Insecure or somehow representative of her tabloid-fodder personality. How do we get it right? Can’t a girl just swipe on an apolitical dab of lip gloss?

I pondered this one recent morning, staring into the mirror, mouth agape in that “I’m applying mascara” way. As women, we’ve heard the arguments — makeup is a societal convention that forces women to put on a literal mask in order to be acceptable to the world.

But have we fetishized the act of going without makeup? Maybe I’m part of the problem — whenever I write about a celebrity tweeting a naked-faced photo on HuffPost Style, I describe them without fail as “radiant” and “fresh-faced.” Does that mean putting on foundation makes us blobby, dusty canvases who’ve succumbed to society’s expectation that women have to “pretty up” for the rest of the world?
