Anne Hathaway showed up at a Cartier event in a “Mad Men” look. She tag-teamed a sixties-throwback style, a pair of tights with visible seams up the back, with a retro, one-sided updo. The result was sexy, but not smack-you-over-the-head sexpot. I likey. After the jump, how to recreate the hair on your own — it’s beyond simple.

Is your dude a lily-white, hair-free geek — and you’d rather he more closely resemble the guido next door? Don’t worry, girlfriend. The man bib will turn your guy from a dud to a stud! Created as part of an Australian ad campaign for Solo soda, the dude dickey gives the impression its wearer is tanner than George Hamilton and built like the Terminator. Apparently, Solo isn’t the first one to come out with an idea that puts hair on a man’s chest. Walter Van Beirendonck’s hairshirt gives its wearer that all over hirsute look. Of course, there are limitations to trying to put hair where it’s not. When you get home, and he takes off his dude bib or fursuit, you’re left with the guy you got. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
Rihanna, who is seen here arriving in Barbados, usually has enviable hair, but we doubt anyone will want to copy this hair-don’t! [Barbados, 4/3/2009] Keep reading »
Everybody told me my premature gray hairs were due to stress or genes. Some of that is probably true. My mom is completely gray and my boyfriend has contributed to at least seven of my silver-colored strands. But there’s a more scientific explanation for going gray. Researchers have discovered that gray hairs occur because of a build up of hydrogen peroxide. Yeah, it’s not just for blonds. Hydrogen peroxide is naturally produced in the body and interferes with the melanin, which is the pigment that colors our hair and skin. So the more it builds up, the grayer we get. Eek! Scientists are optimistic there will be products on the market soon to remove the excess hydrogen peroxide from our hair, so we can keep our brilliant color for as long as possible. The hair industry will definitely be interested in this research and consumers will obviously be too. After all, the money spent on hair care products is projected to reach $42.5 billion by 2010. I think any solution to slow down the aging effects of gray hair is worth every penny. Do you? [MSNBC]

Want a new look? Montreal-based beauty salon Käaz suggests that if you really want a total makeover, it would be best if you let them decapitate you first. Created by ad agency Bleublancrouge, the Canadian campaign promises to “CHANGE YOUR STYLE.” I’m not quite sure how this works, though. So, you go into the salon, you hand them your head, they do what they want with it, and when you come back, they sew your new head back on for you? The super-rolled and devil-Pixie hairstyles are questionable enough, but you’d think if they were going to throw in the plastic surgery, they’d do a better job of suturing you back up. Also, neither of these post-styled chicks looks very happy. Or maybe it’s just me, and looking like the Queen of Hearts just had her way with you is the next thing in hairstyling. Misogyny or beauty? That’s your call. [Copyranter] Keep reading »
