Rebecca Taylor’s Bow Hair: Difficult, Yet Not Impossible

Never have we wanted to be tied up so badly than after seeing this phenomenal hairstyle from Rebecca Taylor‘s Spring 2010 runway show. It breaks our heart to find out that the hairstyle, designed by Rodney Cutler of Cutler Salon, pretty much requires professional assistance (apparently three professionals), and most of the bows were in fact pre-made pieces (see our “Cute Crap I Wanna Put On My Head” post for similar). Cutler, however, must have anticipated the real-girl desire for new style as he was prepared with an alternative: “If you can’t do a bow on yourself, do a twisty bun in back and turn it on its side do you can fan out some of the hair for the same effect.” Cutler suggests a middle part, but we think a deep side part would really rock the style out.

Quick Vid: Redheads Get The Party Started


Three thousand natural redheads recently made a pilgrimage to the Dutch city of Breda to celebrate ginger-colored hair. Not one onlooker yelled “firecrotch” for fear of a massive beatdown. Meanwhile, due to her recent blond shenanigans, Lindsay Lohan was not invited. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

How To Get Fake Bangs With The Help Of A Hair Donut

Backstage at Cynthia Rowley, I spotted a new ‘do that some of you ladies out there (and certain people around here) are going to love. The curled bang look created by hairstylist Bok-Hee is just as retro as Simcha’s usual pompadour, but, as Bok-Hee told me, it has “a little modern twist.” To create the bang, Bok-Hee combed a section of hair forward and rolled it over a hair donut she had cut to fit the model’s forehead, pinning it into place. The rest of the hair was slicked back into a pony, and that’s it! This could also be a pretty slick way to try bangs before you commit to cutting your hair. Just pair with this purple MAC shadow they blended together to give the look a modern edge. Keep reading »

When Does Bedhead Hair Just Turn Into Messy?

What do you think, is Blake Lively rocking a sexy bedhead look or has it veered into messy, frizzball hair territory? Have to say, her put-together look and makeup make me think it’s just bedhead-y—but she comes very close. What do you think? After the jump, a bunch of questions to ask yourself before leaving the house with a “bedhead” look. Keep reading »

Crave: Kairos Anti-Acne Hair Care Trio

Back in the day when we had severe acne, our dermatologist would tell us to keep our hair off our faces after he prescribed topical meds and antibiotics. We walked around with a ponytail for about two weeks before realizing that if we stopped using pore-clogging hair products we could let our hair down. Too bad Kairos’ Acne Care hair care line wasn’t around then because it could have helped us fight acne while keeping our hair looking perfect. The trio of products includes shampoo, conditioner, and an oil-clearing treatment, but Kairos also sells styling gel, hair spray, and hair glue that promise to pull double duty — healthy hair and clear skin.

A New Book Looks At Hair As Art

A new book on hair, Hair’em Scare’em, showcases the hair on your head as a medium for artistic expression. While you may still be struggling with that updo, some artists are taking locks to a whole new creative level in photography, design, and illustration. It’s avant-garde art in which hair happens to be the material, from sculpture to jewelry to mustaches. For those fascinated by all things hirsute, a few sample pages after the jump.

The Future Of Solar Power Is In Your Hairbrush

You might want to start saving those stray hairs that end up in your hairbrush or shower drain, because they may be worth something. If fact, your mane could potentially power the electricity for your home. The discovery comes from a Nepalese student who has invented a new way to make solar panels—using human hair instead of silicon as a conductor. As hair is an adequate conductor of electricity, it would significantly lower the price of solar panel production, and make construction of the devices accessible to everyone (well, except for bald people). So far, the experiment has succeeded in re-charging cell phones and batteries.

Would you be able to wrap your mind around using a blow-dryer or curling iron that was powered by exactly the thing it’s used for? Crazy! [InventorSpot]

Beware These 4 Updo Pitfalls

I can’t believe I’m saying this. I really can’t. But I have to: Freida Pinto‘s hair from last night’s British GQ event is an abomination. I can’t stand her ‘do. Her dress? Love it. Her acting potential? Amazing. Her hair? 100 percent Dolly Parton updo—stacked like a huge, frizz-ball mass atop her head. What can I say? The “messy pile” is an updo dealbreaker. Everyone gets a pass now and then, but if you’re looking to achieve an updo that’s more fresh than matronly, I’ve got a few nuggets of hair wisdom to keep in mind, after the jump… Keep reading »

Tyra (And Her Real Hair) Is Back And Chatting With Perez Hilton

“The Tyra Show” came back for its fifth season yesterday! Perez Hilton (barf) stopped by as the first guest. But the main event was Tyra Banks, who is usually weaved to within an inch of her life, hosting the whole show with her natural hair.

Unforch, Tyra’s real hair is anticlimactic—i.e. she’s not bald. Underneath those weaves and extensions she sashays down the red carpet in, she has regular, boring, shoulder-length brown hair. On yesterday’s show, though, she may have straightened it or had a relaxer in it or something, because it was not kinky in the slightest—which kind of defeats the purpose of her saying “It’s my real hair!” Doesn’t it?

Anyway, during the show, her hairstylist, Oscar, blow-dried and curled her natural ‘do, while she chatted with three women who have some serious issues about their real hair. One of her guests was a biracial woman whose white mom didn’t want people to know she had a black father. This evil mom shaved her daughter’s hair off as a kid because she didn’t want a “nappy-headed baby.” Keep reading »
