If you were alive in the ’80s, you probably made at least one trip to the salon to get a perm. I got many perms in my late elementary school years, which is bizarre, come to think of it, considering that I have naturally curly hair. But still, I sat with those rollers in my hair and that foul-smelling solution on my locks for hours, all so my hair would look permanently crimped. What were we thinking? Those perms are so over. Behold the perm of the aughts — the digital perm. This crazy-looking contraption, invented by Japanese hair dressers, uses digitally powered curlers to thermally recondition your hair while infusing it with the curl level of your choice. Instead of the crimped poodle look, you can transform your stick straight hair into flowing, gentle waves or your frizzy hair into manageable curls. The whole process takes about two hours. I think our friend the perm might be making a comeback. A victory for curly hair! [Daily Mail U.K.] Keep reading »

Forget about your outfit, your makeup, or your breasts. A new survey done by Pantene found that dudes are pretty much obsessed with our hair. About three-fourths of men said they notice a woman because of her locks. In fact, most men notice hair before our clothes, our legs, our makeup, or our breasts. Yup, most men would approach a girl with hot hair over a girl with hot cleave and about 60 percent of men said they prefer nice hair over a nice rack when it comes to choosing a girlfriend. Gosh, I find this so hard to believe, but that’s what the survey says. Well, girls, I guess we’d better load up on those Pantene products for healthy, shiny hair. That’s the whole point of this survey, right? To motivate us to buy Pantene. The only thing that would actually motivate me to buy Pantene is Stacy London’s commercial. She’s so cool. [Glamour

I love football. But sometimes, when watching games, I find myself thinking really girly thoughts that I try to keep to myself, lest I make every guy in the room roll their eyes. Two from last night’s Super Bowl: first, the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers have really similar uniform pants, only Green Bay’s are matte yellow while the Steelers’ are a little more of a shiny gold. Both make players’ butts look equally cute. And second, that I would like to bestow the award for Hair MVP to Clay Matthews of Green Bay and Troy Polamalu of Pittsburgh for their majorly long locks, which look awesome under a helmet. In my mind, Polamalu wins, even tough that’s not exactly how the game shook out on the field. Keep reading »
The stress of being the most powerful leader in the Western world while attempting to rescue a fledgling economy, help millions of Americans who are out of work and end international conflict has to manifest somewhere.
For President Barack Obama — like so many of his White House predecessors — the job’s stresses have gone straight to his tresses.
The 49-year-old leader has been the first to acknowledge — and even joke about — his rapidly graying hair which has grown noticeably whiter since he assumed office two years ago. In fact, the salt-and-pepper look started during sleepless nights on the campaign trail. Continue reading… Keep reading »
