Lest you think Bradley Cooper’s curly-cue new ‘do is a wig, I draw your attention to the inset photo of Cooper with curlers in his hair from just a few weeks ago. Ladies and gentleman, this is commitment to your craft. Somewhere, Justin Timberlake is having a total flashback moment. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

Judging by all the posts about Prince Hot Ginge we publish, you might have figured out by now that I have a
little huge thing for gingers. You can imagine my unbridled glee upon the discovery of “I Collect Gingers,” a photoseries by photographer Anthea Pokroy. She’s fascinated by these naturally gorgeous, rare genetic specimens, too! To date, Pokroy has photographed 505 redheads so far and is even raising money to publish the world’s weirdest coffee table book. Well, weird to other people. [Laughing Squid]
Let’s get this out of the way: three years ago, almost to the day, I lopped off much of my midback-length hair in an ill-fated incident best summarized as Something That Should Not Have Happened. In my defense, everyone gets scissors-happy once in a while… but this was more along the lines of scissors-crazy, and I went from having a pink-dipped mermaid mane to a Kurt Cobain-inspired messy bob. It was not cute (duh, I did it), and I was not happy. Cut to today, and much of what I lost on that tragic day has been restored. It’s almost as if it never happened — except it totally did, and I will never forget it. As a result, keeping my hair long, strong, and in great condition is one of my top priorities these days. Aside from washing less frequently and deep-conditioning twice weekly like a boss, the Turbie Twist makes it ridiculously easy for me to keep my growing hair undamaged and healthy while looking ridiculous at the same time. It protects it from the wear and tear that results from rough, unceremonious towel-drying, and cuts down significantly on the time it takes hair to air dry thanks to super-absorbent cotton. All you have to do is twist your soakin’ wet hair up tight and push the whole deal through the loop. Plus, it’s an “as seen on TV” product, so that’s how you know it’s legit! [$6.99, Sally Beauty]
This past week, Dakota Fanning (that’s the elder Fanning) debuted her pink-again hair while out and about in NYC. Pink hair has gone from the beauty fringes to way in the mainstream, and these days pretty much anyone and everyone is rocking it. Why pink? Maybe because it’s sort of sweet and feminine while still retaining a hard edge. In any case, you know women as disparate as Avril Lavigne and Helen Mirren are both rocking pink locks, it’s a color that’s here to stay. Check out all the pink-hued hotties above!
So how do you get pink hair, and can you do it at home? Yes! And no… Keep reading »
Quick! Can you identify which sexy male actor, who typically has a lush head-full of hair, is rocking a greasy-looking combover hair piece for a movie role? Answer after the jump! Keep reading »
Hi Rachel! As you know, I recently returned from a trip to Paris. On my way back to the US, I got stranded in Iceland for 24 hours — not complaining! — and had the opportunity to visit the famous Blue Lagoon hot springs! Life dream status across the board … except for what the salty, mineral-y water did to my hair. It dried it out something fierce. Help me get my moisture back!!!! — Amelia
Yup, hot water and salt do have a way of zapping the moisture out of perfectly healthy hair. That hot spring does wonders for your skin — and, duh, your mental state — but it’s a guaranteed recipe for dehydration and tangles. But don’t freak out, and definitely don’t chop it off. There are a few steps you can take in the interest of restoring your hair to its former glory, and they don’t have to cost a fortune or come in the form of an expensive salon treatment. In fact, I know of a pretty good weapon against frazzled hair that you can find at just about any grocery store… Keep reading »
I used to be obsessed — like, hours-in-front-of-the-mirror fixated — with having the most voluminous hair I could muster. I would load it up with sticky products and blow-dry it into a huge, tangled mass of lion’s mane. Disgusting. Those days are long gone, but I’m still a little bit pathological about my desire for body. You see, I have super-fine hair that’s gotten pretty long recently, and the longer it gets, the flatter it goes. It’s almost, like, physics or something. The thing about volumizing products is that so many of them end up making hair crunchy, dirty-looking, and decidedly unsexy, and who wants that? Naturally, I made it my mission to try every volumizing product ever and report back on which ones made it into my arsenal. For the fine-haired, or even just the flat-haired, these seven volumizers — sprays, creams, and even powders! — have got you covered. Keep reading »
Everyone pales in comparison to Nicki Minaj when it comes to wigs and weaves. Even the eccentric Lady Gaga seems tame in the hair department when it comes to decadent, ridiculous and show stopping weaves. We’d like to take just a few moments to acknowledge the epicness of this woman’s hair. Read more …
Shout out to my cousin Tiffany, who has posted this video on her Facebook timeline, like, three times and it never fails to make me laugh. I feel guilty for laughing, mind you, but this is the sort of thing that would happen to me so I feel like it’s okay. Anyway, this girl posted this hair curling tutorial, but her demo went very, very wrong. (Part of me thinks this video could be fake, FYI, but it looks awfully real to me.)
