Blogger Bobby Glam created this awesome hairstyle she calls the “punky pony,” and I love it for two reasons: 1) it’s totally badass, and 2) it gets all the hair off your face and neck, which is a godsend in the summer months. Because as much as I love my sideswept bangs, when it gets hot I don’t want them anywhere near my face, and my old routine of clipping them back with a bobby pin is getting a little old. Check out this tutorial (including a step-by-step video) to get the punky pony look for yourself! [Bobby Glam]

Anne Hathaway Goes Back To Brown After Rocking Platinum Hair

Anne Hathaway's hair color change

Well, it looks like Anne Hathaway is back to brown following a brief dalliance with a platinum pixie, which she first debuted at the Met Ball. I don’t have very many thoughts about Anne, and when I do they rarely defect from shhhh, Anne, shhhhhhh, but I have to say I’m kind of disappointed that she ditched the blonde so quickly! I thought it was really flattering on her coloring and added a fresh, edgier dimension to her look. OH WELL. R.I.P., Blonde Anne. We hardly knew ye. [Right photo: Splash News]

Makeup Bag: 5 Favorite Summer Hair Products

My hair, washed, dried, and left entirely to its own devices, is soft, fine, flat, slightly wavy, and so, so boring. It viscerally pains me to wear my hair in its limp, lifeless natural state, but I don’t always want crazy volume, either — I’m perpetually in search of a happy medium. I love to layer products to desired effect, but when the weather warms up, the last thing I want to do is have my head weighed down by heavy volumizing sprays and mousses. These five super-light products can be used on their own or in conjunction for the kind of soft, natural-looking, beachy body I crave come summer… Keep reading »

bad hair days

One day in college, during track practice, I wore a bandanna to my work out. I was having a spectacularly bad hair day and that thin piece of printed cloth made me feel safe from criticism. My coach, who was a hard ass, wasn’t having it and ordered me to take it off immediately. I ran back to the locker room, did my best to make my mane look presentable but still, I cringed as I walked back to the track, embarrassed of what my teammates would think.

Like many black women I know, I have always had a tumultuous relationship with my hair. If it didn’t look good, I didn’t feel good and often it dictated whether I would have a good or bad day. But my own criticism of my hair wasn’t something I could have ever controlled; it was something that started with my ancestors, long before I was born. Keep reading »

Victory rolls gained their popularity (and their name) thanks to the pin-up girls of World War II, but I’ve always been fascinated by how this thoroughly old-fashioned hairstyle also looks a little…sci-fi? Like, couldn’t you see a “Star Trek” character sporting this ‘do? Maybe Star Trek Week has me seeing things, but either way, if you’re looking for a funky hairstyle to add to your repertoire, check out this simple video tutorial to get the look for yourself!

Your Hair Down There...
What it says about you. Read More »

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]
