Watch Another 100 Years Of Hair & Beauty Trends!

Hair
So Many Looks To Try!

Last month, Cut Video released a timelapse film of a model showing off hair and beauty looks from the past hundred years. Now, they’ve released a sequel! Watch model Marshay take us through the decades with her gorgeous looks. Now all we need are Pinterest tutorials for all these styles so that I can inevitably screw them up. You can view both videos side-by-side here, and if you’re into this century-in-a-minute deal, take a look at this video featuring 100 years of dance and style, which is one of my favorite things on the internet ever.

If I Was A Rich Celebrity With All The Money, I Would Hire Anh Co Tran To Be My Personal Hairstylist

Hell, if I was a rich celebrity with all the money, I would hire Anh Co Tran to do all of your hair too, dammit, that’s just how awesome I think he is. You get a haircut, and you get a haircut, and you get a haircut — we all get HAIRCUTS! The LA-based hairstylist is known for his soft undercut, which gives hair of all lengths and types what he calls a “lived-in” look. He’s all about embracing the hair’s natural wave, which he emphasizes with a curling wand, alternating the direction of each curl starting with away from the face in the front, then towards the face, then away, etc. so you don’t get that weird, sausage curl look.

I don’t live in LA, so I can’t get a cut from Tran himself, but I showed my hairstylist friend one of Tran’s haircuts for inspiration and she jumped for joy because he’s apparently one of her hair gurus. She did a kick ass job recreating his soft undercut on my hair, giving me one of the best ‘dos I’ve had in years. So, if you’re in need of a fresh new look and want some inspiration to pass along to your hairstylist before they start chopping, click through this gallery of some of Tran’s best cuts for women with straight, wavy and curly hair and see if one speaks to you!

No-Poo Update: Fuck Yeah, Rye Flour

About six weeks ago, I wrote about using skin products that are pH-balanced to the skin on your face (the pH of which, by the by, is 5.5). In it, I had a tiny addendum about the fact that the same science that goes for your face also goes for your hair. It was an edifying bit of research for me, because I stopped washing my hair with shampoo in February on the basis of it being totally unnecessary, a waste of money, damaging to your scalp, and snake oil aimed at the same women’s beauty standards that make us go crazy over so much else about our looks.

Hair Dos: 15 Celebs Bringing Back The ’90s Hair Flip

The ’90s are my decade. Why do you think I wear so much flannel, make regular references to “90210,” and sing “Doll Parts” at karaoke? Because it’s forever 1992 in my soul. Anyway, ’90s nostalgia is big right now with my generation, probably because we’re all hitting our mid-30s and -40s and tired of being cynical and too cool for school, and just want to harken back to our good ol’ younger days. That’s why I’m totally on board with the hair flip making a comeback. Oh yeah, the hair flip. You know, where it looks like you just ran your fingers through the front of your hair and then flipped it to the side, all casual and nonchalant-like. Sometimes the hair flip was all silky and slippery looking, like Alicia Silverstone in “The Crush” and “Clueless” and those awesome Aerosmith videos. There was the “sexy supermodel in a rock video” hair flip, the Donna Martin hair flip, which, if you touched it, sounded all crunchy and crinkly. And of course there was the Drew Barrymore circa-”Poison Ivy” (best Drew) hair flip. Are you feeling me? Click through to see which current celebs are rockin’ the hair flip and if you’re interested in giving it a shot, Lauren Conrad’s site, The Beauty Department, has a tutorial. Or, you know, you could just run your hands through your hair and flip that shit because it’s that easy.

Beauty IRL: I Cut Off All My Hair (And Only Regretted It A Little Bit)

Beauty IRL: I Cut Off All My Hair (And Only Regretted It A Little Bit)

Beauty mags are full of the same homogenous crap. Skinny, pretty ladies shilling beauty products that cost a whole paycheck, promising to make you look and feel a certain way. Welcome to Beauty IRL, a new column in which we try to break down the aspirational walls of beauty coverage, and bring you real-life dispatches from the trenches, from someone who likes makeup, researches hair products and is pretty real about the whole thing.

I’ve always been jealous of those girls with long, thick, shiny hair. Those girls with “Pretty Little Liars” hair, the kind of hair that tumbles and twists and waves over their shoulders, all shiny and beachy and wind-tosed. Girls with tresses like this are always casually pushing their hair aside, lifting it up in great, shiny hanks and forming a complicated knot as they talk at you. They want you to think that they woke up like that, but really, they woke up at 7 a.m. and spent a good half hour with a curling wand and some heat spray. For a long time, that was the hair I wanted. Countless years of reading beauty blogs and a childhood spent turning the pages of Color Me Beautiful, purchased at a yard sale by my grandma, taught me to believe that I should hide my moon face with a long sheet of hair on either side, to create angles, because it is important to have a face that is sharp and angular, to have cheekbones that can cut glass.
