Maybe you’ve heard of this British pop band One Direction? Perhaps you have a tweenage sister that’s begging you to take her to their concert? As far as we can tell, they’re just latest boy band iteration, this time masterminded by “X-Factor” and “American Idol” svengali Simon Cowell. As such, we’re not particularly interested in listening to their music, which my friend Julieanne refers to as “My Chemical Newsies.” But the hair? Oh geez, we could talk about that travesty all day.
Rapunzel, Rapunzel isn’t just letting down her hair — she’s chopping it off for the first time in her life. Natasha Moraes de Andrade, 12, has the fairy-tale nickname because her hair is 5 feet, 2 inches long. That’s less than two inches shorter than her body, the Sun reports.
The Brazilian pre-teen has never had a haircut. But the arduous task of brushing for an hour and a half each day and a $600 yearly shampoo bill have led Moraes de Andrade to finally agree to trim her locks. Read more…
Sorry, your dog is really cool, but your dog didn’t just grab a scrunchie from the vanity, put it in his locks and look mega chill like these dogs. Your dog is probably a great listener, and really fun at parties, but there is NO WAY your dog is going to make cheer squad with a half-baked ponytail like that. These dogs on the other hand? They are bringing it. More after the jump. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
Nicki Minaj has rocked some pretty imaginative looks, none of which I would commit to wearing myself, so this will be a first: I’m kind of loving the long, crazy-voluminous light green hair she’s sporting in the video for her latest song, “Starships.” My Little Pony-inspired hair has been literally everywhere for the past year or so, some interpretations more successful than others, so her neon hue isn’t that much of a departure from what’s on trend. This is such an eye-catching look, I can’t help but picture it on my head. With my pale skin, it would probably send me straight into Beetlejuice territory, but maybe it’s worth a shot… What do you think? Have I lost my mind, or is this something about this verdigris strangely appealing? [Just Jared]
As it warms up, you’re going to want to consider getting your long hair off your neck. Why not a bun? A messy, upswept ‘do is the perfect antidote to sweaty weather. We’ve scoured the Internet for the best buns out there — for inspiration and ideas. Check ‘em out!
We have been having some beautifully, apocalyptically warm weather in New York the past few days, and I am feeling it. I’m like a completely different person from winter to summer — seriously though, aren’t we all? — and the sunshine feels so good. In fact, it makes me want to buy things.
I may be unique, though, in that the first thing that crosses my mind as something I must get in anticipation of the season is not sundresses or even sandals. It’s highlights. My extremely dark, cool-toned hair in its natural state serves me just fine in the fall and winter, but man, does spring call for some lightening up. I haven’t dyed my hair in over a year since a near-catastrophic incident involving a box of bleach and a blowdryer held too close (shout out to my dad for being there to shove my head under the faucet!), so I’m going to have to get reacquainted with hanging out in a stylist’s chair with foils on my head, but I think I’m ready.
The best kind of highlights, the kind I covet, are glossy, healthy, and expensive-looking, regardless of how much they actually cost. I like to enter the salon with photographic reference, perhaps even annotated, so who better to field hair color inspiration from than these famous brunette beauties? The real question is: will I go the traditional route or opt for ombre? Decisions, decisions…
