Nothing makes a blowout feel a little less indulgent than tying it to a good cause, and Kérastase is here to help a sister out with that. Next Wednesday, participating Kérastase Consultant Salons on the East Coast will trade you a hair treatment and blowout for a $10 donation to Locks of Love, a non-profit that collects hair donations to make wigs for underprivileged kids suffering from long-term medical hair loss. Live on the West Coast? Your date is June 23. Book your appointment here and get ready to be simultaneously pretty-haired and generous; that’s a combo that looks good on everyone.

As summer ebbs ever closer, they start popping up everywhere. Bright red, wincing, and trying (yet failing) to hide the tell-tale signs with cleverly applied makeup, there’s nothing more depressing than an early summer sunburn victim. Sure, we’ve all been there, but, somehow, we forget the terror of those tan lines and burned bums by the time June rolls around each year. In the interest of jogging your memory and preparing you for a SPF-filled summer, Frisky staff members and friends have valiantly offered up their sunburn horror stories.

I have extremely oily skin that is a curse (I’m always shiny) and a blessing (I won’t wrinkle easily). So for years, I’ve ignored the advice of my dermatologist and beauty professionals who said I should moisturize despite my skin type. Until recently, I hadn’t found a moisturizer that wouldn’t contribute to the oil slick and cause breakouts. I happened upon the L’Oreal Ideal Skin Genesis Complexion Equalizer by chance; someone left it on The Frisky “free table,” an area for discarded books [Anyone want some erotica? -- Editor Amelia] and unused cosmetics. It was kind of fate that the little pink box caught my eye because my skin has been looking a little blotchy lately. After about three weeks of use, it’s helping to even out my skin tone.

Fake eyelashes are generally a problematic beauty product. They’re either too costumey and should be reserved for Halloween and theme parties or they’re a nice idea in principle but never work in reality. When we first saw these fake eyelashes by Paperself, we thought “crazy!” To be more accurate, they’re not lashes, bur rather super-detailed paper cuttings. The styles, which feature designs like zebras, vines, and flowers, are all linked to Chinese symbolism. Looking closer, we realized they’re actually quite beautiful and artistic (assuming there’s no risk of getting paper cuts near your eyes, which would really suck). Only question is—where to wear them? We’re thinking they may be a wee bit much for your average outing.
