Does Your Hair Never Hold A Curl?

Well, have I got a trick for you. If you’re anything like me or, um, Mischa Barton—check her out last night, on the left she’s arriving and, right, she’s headed home from the same party—and wage a war on your stick straight hair when trying to get it to wave or curl, this is a post for you. (Those of you with hair that forms pretty, perfect waves … I’m jealous. Grass is always greener, though, I suppose.) So, it’s actually not that hard a hair trick—it just involves making a different hair tool choice…. Keep reading »

Baby Hair Gel Creeps Us Out

OK, fauxhawks on babies are totally awesome, but this is not: Le Baby hair gel “thickens baby fine hair,” so your little dumplin’ can look just like Gwen Stefani‘s son, Zuma Rossdale. Plus, Le Baby doesn’t contain any of those fragrances and polysyllabic chemicals that fretful mommies hate! Gee, I thought I wanted to be one of those “cool” moms who gives her baby a funky lil’ mohawk. Then I realized I’d be purchasing styling products for someone who still poops his pants.

Hair Model Citizen: Not Bad For A Pussycat Doll

I never thought I’d actually say this about a member of The Pussycat Dolls, but Kim Wyatt’s hair is looking kind of rad. The party in the front, business in back show is really working out for her. To get the look, you need some seriously strong hold and having bleached-to-death hair lends the perfect texture. Work a healthy dose of TIGI Catwalk Extra Strong Mousse into your hair, tease the front up to the heavens and comb the sides back. [Manchester, 10/19/09] Keep reading »

Hair Model Citizen: Where’s Ken Paves Now Beyotch?

Jessica Simpson is known for her talent golden locks. Her hairstylist, Ken Paves, is known for his talent ability to manipulate said golden locks into perfect, gleaming platinum curls and bows and whistles via irons and curlers and extensions and lots of hairspray. Today, Simpson, seen checking out of the Ritz-Carlton in Manhattan, looks like she got a much-needed makeunder or something. Welcome to a world where very tan, bleached-out men don’t follow you around with a hairbrush, darling! It’s so freeing, no? To get the look, do nothing. Don’t even brush your hair. Add sunnies. Viola! [NYC, 10/14/09] Keep reading »

6 Ways To Survive That Pesky “Grow-Out” Hair Phase

Ever since Katie Holmes cut her hair super-super short, I’ve been waiting with bated beauty breath for her to start in on that awkward “growing-out” hair phase. Well, that time is finally here, folks, and we can all learn a thing or two from her on the hair front.

A Sleek (And Sneaky) Way To Use A Bobby Pin

Check out Lo Bosworth‘s hair, above, while filming “The Hills” along with Kristin Cavallari—now, look a little closer, see the bobby pin? Lo is using it to not only keep her hair in place (a great way to fight the hair fight on windy days), but to also give her side parted hair a slight lift. Rather than letting her hair fall limply, the strategically placed bobby pin gives the parted hair a relaxed, soft vibe. Do it yourself, it takes seconds: Take your already parted hair, and section off the top layers. Sweep ‘em back, making sure you do this softly and don’t pull your hair too taught. Then just slide the bobby pin in about halfway down the length of your hair. For a true don’t-look-twice look, buy the bobby pins that most closely match your hair. Love it. Keep reading »

Hair Model Citizen: Elvis Presley’s Hair Scraps

I may have missed the Elvis craze, but ever since I was treated to a private tour of Graceland, I’ve been intrigued by the King. Obviously, intrigued is a far cry from obsessed, and you’d have to be to purchase this “large quantity of hair” for sale by Leslie Hindman Auctioneers of Chicago later this month. Apparently, this model citizen was shaved off his highness’s head when he was drafted into the U.S. Army and shed his famous locks for a military issue crew cut. This pile of seemingly innocuous hair is estimated to be worth somewhere between $8,000 and $12,000. For serious. To get the look, firmly press electric shaver to head and keep a broom close by.

Hair Model Citizen: Dita Gives Good Head

Nobody works glamorous, 1940s pinup-girl style like the one and only Dita Von Teese. She gets an honorable citation today for denouncing the modern trend of sloppy ‘dos by sticking with a classic formula that looks good on her every time. Here’s how you can recreate the look: Treat slightly damp, towel-dried hair to a dose of Redken Crystal Curls Defining Shine Gel. Divide hair into multiple sections (about two inches each), and roll into large curlers, securing with bobby pins. Either go to sleep (if you’re doing this overnight) or use a blowdryer to completely dry your hair. Remove curlers, part to one side, and touch up with hairspray for hold and to smooth flyaways. Hey, we didn’t say looking this good was easy. [Madrid, 10/5/09] Keep reading »
