Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

Sometimes having a bad hair day can feel like it’s the end of the world. And sometimes it actually is. That’s what happened to Chris Lancaster, a Williamsburg, Brooklyn resident who was going through a rather unfortunate hair phase—which, he explains, was because he had had a Hare Krishna cut (shaved head except for a pony tail), and was growing it out. One deeply offended over-sharer made a sketch of the man and sent it into Gawker. Before too long, Chris discovered that he had unwittingly become an internet celeb. But it wasn’t the mean comments that bothered him (“He looks like Wolverine and a penis had a baby”), but the fact that people were now tracking him and recognizing him everywhere. Things escalated to a point when his girlfriend at the time couldn’t deal with the fiasco, so she broke up with him. So what have we learned today? Bad hair can cause the internet to hate you, bring on stalkers, and ruin your romantic relationships. Get a real look into the horrors with this video made by Chris himself. [Gawker] Keep reading »
We are going to call this one “Snookie’s Wang”. Ms. Vera closed her show in New York with a ‘do that resembled the signature style of our favorite MTV train wreck. No offense to the South Jerz board-walkers, but this is one look we won’t be rocking if leaps off the runway. Keep reading »
We do a lot of damage to our hair with color, hot tools, blow drying, and shampooing. When tresses start to look tired and accumulate dead ends, it’s time to pamper you locks back to good health. Don’t stress about a trip to the spa or an appointment with your hair stylist. You can give yourself a deep conditioning treatment from the comfort of your own bathroom.
Ballroom dancer extraordinaire and “Dancing With the Stars” alum Karina Smirnoff just stepped out of Mr. Chow with a freshly chopped bob, and judging from her Cheshire grin, looks like she’s totally feeling it. We are too, actually. Her long hair was pretty, but this is kind of unexpected and looks so fresh, right? (Chic even, a word we might never have associated with Karina Smirnoff.) To get the look, ask for slightly layered bangs and a semi-blunt cut with softer edges. [Los Angeles, 3/2/10] Keep reading »
If you plan on pulling a 360- going from black to blond or vice versa- we recommend consulting a professional. But for a standard single process, skip the salon (and its bill) and do your own dye-job.
Recently, Catherine Zeta-Jones wore a scrunchie. In public.
I have to admit, I thought scrunchies were just a distant memory of decades past — one that most of us would like to forget, for that matter. So I expressed the general consensus — to my fellow stylish office mates — that scrunchies are over.
But then something happened. A great scrunchie debate ensued, as comments from our readers poured in, declaring things like “Who are you to approve or disapprove of scrunchies,” “You are so wrong. The scrunchie was the perfect thing to wear,” and “She can put her hair up with anything she wants.” Keep reading »
Ever wonder what two seconds of footage of Lily Donaldson whipping her long blond head of hair, while simultaneously being hit with four wind machines, and slowed down to 1,000 frames per second, would look like? Yeah? Maybe? This is your lucky day, my friend. Check out Lily’s flying hair. Is it just me, or is it seriously mesmerizing? “Using the super-high definition Phantom Gold HD—a camera initially developed for monitoring missile flights—Donaldson distills a hyper-real tranquility.” Tranquility, indeed.

Selma Blair was spotted at The Gap yesterday with a brand-new haircut. Look quickly and it appears to be a very Anna Wintour-esque bob. But if you look a bit closer, her hair is reminiscent of Agyness Deyn‘s bowl cut, too. I’m nicknaming it the “bowl-bob.” Check out the fringe cut down the front sides; her bangs are gradually blending into the length of her hair with a series of layers or fringe. Feeling her look? Ask your stylist for a bob with a thick bang and long layers for movement and to decrease the weight on your hair so it doesn’t fall flat. Then tell him/her you want to blend your bangs into the rest of the do—ask him to cut front fringe à la a bowl cut. Keep reading »
