Snooki Nixes Pouf To “Look More Mature”—What Have You Done To Look Older?

Pouf of Snooki, we hardly knew ye. You came into our lives, entertained us, and then vanished in what seemed like the blink of an eye. As we saw at the MTV Video Music Awards, the guidette has gotten rid of her signature pouf hairstyle, apparently in favor of a more “mature” look. She says, ““I want to look more mature. The pouf—I’ve been wearing it since I was 16, so why not switch it up?” We were thinking the change was actually working until Snooki kind of contradicted herself: “Now I have bangs. I haven’t had bangs since I was seven, so this is weird.” Leave it to Snooki to put her foot in it. Anyway, this got us thinking—what were some of the funny things we did (or, um, still do) to look older? After the jump, Frisky editors chime in. [People StyleWatch] Keep reading »

Are Fancy Shampoos A Waste?

We’ve often purchased shampoos claiming to be “nutrient-rich” and promising healthier hair, only to find that the results are unimpressive and the products act just like normal shampoos. Some suggest that labels advertising nutrient benefits are gobbling your dollars because, in fact, it’s very difficult for the hair shaft to absorb them, and thus benefit from them. How Life Works explains that putting cleansing products with active ingredients on your hair is akin to putting fertilizer on the leaves of a plant instead of the root. When you lather up, “the shampoo molecules [shampoos] contain are too large to penetrate the cells of hair and more importantly the tiny hair follicles where our hair actually grows. They sit atop the follicle until we wash them away.” Interesting. Do you go for the ultra-basic in shampoos? Or are you a loyal fan of certain brands with bells and whistles?

How To Get Hair Like Kate Moss

As our beauty team made the rounds backstage during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2010, we noticed a bevy of models sporting disheveled and, dare we say, messy strands as they prepared to march the runway.

It was hair that looked undone, in a perfectly done way. After consulting with a few lead hairstylists, we discovered the not-so-surprising motive behind the madness: Kate Moss. Over twenty five years in the limelight, and Moss is still a muse. Read more Keep reading »

The Gap-Toothed Trend Leads Some To Get Their Teeth Gapped

I’ve written about the gap-toothed trend here two times before (here and here) because I have a gap between my front teeth. Finally, I am organically on trend! The other day, I was actually wondering if, because of all the famous people rocking a gap between their teeth — from models to actresses — some people would actually get a gap put between their teeth. Sure enough, the Wall Street Journal reports folks are doing just that. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “I’m Pretty, So Why Can’t I Get A Boyfriend?”

I’m a smart, attractive 20-something living in NYC and am miserably single. Thanks to my parents’ golden gene pool I have no problems attracting male attention, but somehow the men I date end up fading out after a few dates. While all my girlfriends are in love with their amazing boyfriends who adore them, I am constantly out man-hunting at the nearest hot spot only to end up with a stud for a two-week fling. I’m social and funny, and not a psycho or vain or self-involved. I have plenty of cool male friends who agree that I’m a great catch, so what gives? I always end up dating very attractive guys with dating ADD or less attractive guys who claim they’re too intimidated to be themselves around me (lame). To make matters worse, my past two boyfriends left me for women who are significantly less attractive than I am (plain, tom-boyish types) and are in healthy long-term relationships.
