I’ll spend 45 minutes (easy) perfecting my cat-eye in the morning, but I stopped “doing” my hair before I even started. I have a long, plentiful mane (seriously, it is a mane) that takes an entire day to dry naturally and an hour to blow-dry, so I’ve always been the type to wash it at night, sleep on it, and work with whatever weird lumps and bumps have developed come morning. Now, I like to think that I am the pioneer of what I’m about to divulge to you, but that is highly unlikely; I just happened to figure it out for myself. (But also I’ve never been the pioneer of anything before so please just let me have this.)
If you have shoulder-length hair or longer, and would like for this hair to dry into smooth, perfect waves with literally no effort or styling whatsoever, FOLLOW ME. (Also, if you haven’t listened to the album An Awesome Wave by alt-J, go do that. But first, follow me!) Keep reading »
This week’s OMG-worthy hairstyle is the waterfall braid, a style so lovely and unique that I quite literally can’t stop staring at it. It’s a little more advanced than other styles I’ve posted, so hair novices like me might want to enlist a friend to help conquer it, but if you feel comfortable with french braiding I think you could pull it off on your own. Either way, the tutorial is packed with photos to guide you through it. Good luck! [Once Wed]
When the weather is warm and sticky, the last thing you want to do is wear your hair down. A typical ponytail or topknot gets old fast, so why not take a cue from one of these pretty ponytails? Tossed to the side or roughed up at the crown, your summer look can go from basic to bomb in seconds flat. Draw some inspiration from these 10 celebs …
If you, like me, spent a portion of your morning delicately pulling out gray hairs from the crown of your head, you’re going to want to hear about this. Science! Yes, the same science that told us that boobs shouldn’t wear bras and that there’s a neurological reason you can’t get Rihanna’s “Diamonds” out of your head, has figured out why hair goes grey as we age. It’s “massive oxidative stress,” silly. Keep reading »
Welcome to a new style feature, my friends. The title is pretty self-explanatory (OMG! I love your hair!), but basically, since I’m always on the lookout for hair inspiration, I thought it would be fun to give a weekly shoutout to some of the fabulous ‘dos from around the web. First up: this perfectly messy chignon style from Kate over at The Small Things Blog. I love styles that purposefully look a little undone because there’s no pressure to have a shiny, slicked back finished product–if you miss a few pieces or position the bun slightly off center, it just adds to the effect. Check out her video tutorial to get the look for yourself (in about five minutes, natch!).
We don’t know if it’s a case of teen angst or a latent desire to follow in mom’s (former) footsteps, but Madonna‘s 16-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon is a certified badass in the making. The teenager has shirked her famous mother’s strict, borderline puritanical upbringing in favor of cigarettes, piercings, handsome show-biz boyfriends, and now… green hair! Lola was spotted out in her hometown of New York City over the weekend showing off her new verdigris locks, and I have to say, I’m kind of into it. In fact, I had green hair myself when I was 16! So yeah, consider me 100 percent on board with Lourdes’s new look.
Plenty of celebs love themselves some unnaturally-colored hair, and green is a particular favorite. Check out similar looks on Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and more in the gallery above!
Every day, The Frisky staff gets packages in the mail filled with publicity goodies like books, makeup, magazines. But this week there was a game changer in the morning post: WIGS. Someone sent us four wigs from Tabitha Coffey, Daisy Fuentes, and Sherri Shepherd’s wig lines. Naturally we tried all the hairpieces on — sometimes multiple wigs at once — and snapped pics for a very special edition of What Are We Wigging Today?
We think we look very glamorous. Don’t you agree?
Jennifer Lawrence just cut her long locks into a very ’70s-inspired shoulder-length bob. She looks good — she’s Jennifer Lawrence, don’t forget — but shoulder length hair can be hard to pull off.
I should know — I’m in the throes of growing out my pixie cut and practically want to weep in frustration. My hair is really thick and has a tendency to do a little upturned flip when it hits my shoulders, which gives my hair an unwanted wacky edge.
In any case, take a look at these nine stellar celeb haircuts, which all work to varying degrees. And vote for your favorite in our poll after the jump… Keep reading »
