How To Style A Bouffant With Short Hair

Mad Men” has made me obsessed with the vintage bouffant hairstyle. While it looks like you need a lot of hair to achieve the super huge look, it’s actually not so much about the length of your hair as it is the volume, and how to create it. If you have chin-length hair like I do, and want to get the ’60s-inspired style, check out my DIY instructions after the jump! Keep reading »

Light Hair/Dark Eyes And Dark Hair/Light Eyes Are The Prettiest Combos

This morning on the subway, I couldn’t stop staring at the woman seated across from me. She’s one of those people who’s stunning, but you can’t figure out exactly what makes them so pleasing to look at. And then I solved the mystery—she was blond, I think naturally, but had super dark brown eyes. It’s a combination that’s pretty unusual, genetically speaking. This reminded me of my friend Sarah from elementary school, who had dark brown hair like me but bright blue eyes. I was always a little jealous of this. I started thinking about it, and have decided that the celebs I find the most beautiful tend to have this combo of dark hair and light eyes, or light hair and dark eyes. Maybe I should start rocking violet-colored contacts again, like I did in high school? Keep reading »

Can I Get Rid Of My Cellulite?

A while ago, we ran a post about a cellulite cream that a blogger at StyleList tried that she said works. After that, Karin Herzog, the company that makes the product, got in touch and asked if I wanted to give it a try myself. Get rid of my cellulite? Sure! I guess I’d say my cellulite situation is about “average.” I’ve got some on the backs of my thighs and on my butt. Can a skin cream get rid of my cellulite? I am dubious. Yet, I’ll keep an open mind while I try their Silhouette and Tonus B12 creams for a month. I can’t promise that I’ll post before and after shots of my butt (which is probably for the best, really), but I will let you know in 30 days if my rear end has more or less cellulite. [Karin Herzog] Karin Herzog sent me two free tubes of anti-cellulite creams, but my 30-day cellulite status report will be 100% influence-free. Keep reading »

I’m 25 And I Still Have Acne—When Will It End?

I’ve never had acne that’s been bad enough to earn me the nickname “Pizza Face” or to produce yearbook photos that needed to be burned. But I have had persistent breakouts since I was a teenager, and have gone through the ringer of treatments from the prescribed (creams, cleansers, oral antibiotics) to the popular (microdermabrasion, galvanic facials, weird “As Seen on TV” heat-treating gadgets). The only thing that’s ever worked for me is Accutane, the hard-core prescription drug which is no pretty process and will give you a deformed baby if you happen to get pregnant on it. Yet, even after a few courses of Accutane, I’ve found (as is common with the drug), that its effects wear off after about a year … Keep reading »

Helen Mirren Shares Her Beauty Secrets

“Holding your tummy in is another trick for making you look and feel good. I don’t know why, but I do, by nature, hold my tummy in. [... And] Four-inch platforms give you great height and make your legs look unbelievably long. I used only to be able to get them in stripper shops, but now you can buy them everywhere – although, unfortunately, that means everyone else has discovered the trick too.”

Helen Mirren, who turned heads with her bikini pics two years ago when she was just shy of 63, shares some of her beauty tips with the Daily Mail. [via Daily Mail] Keep reading »
