Photographer Tommy Ton snapped this photo of stylist and Dazed fashion editor Katie Shillingford, who’s in Paris for Fashion Week. She certainly took Drew Barrymore’s light-roots-dark-ends style to a whole ‘nother level with this ombre dye job. Perhaps this is going to be the next big thing in hair, kind of the opposite of frosted tips, which were huge for guys in the ’90s. [Jak & Jil] Keep reading »
We were slightly baffled by Drew Barrymore‘s most recent dye job, but it didn’t last long. Earlier this week, Drew appeared on “Today” and her blond hair no longer had black ends. She had chopped them off. Now she has the same ‘do as before, only slightly shorter. And she’s been wearing it slicked back. Keep reading »
News from celeb hair-land: There’s no need to dry your hair (let alone flat-iron it) before heading out for the night—just copy this sleek and sexy look, above. Lauren Conrad is the latest in a long line of stars sporting this way easy hair ‘do—Jessica Alba racked her wet-looking hair back last week and Kate Moss has been all about it for months now. (Oh, and, J.Lo has been rocking the look for decades!) Want the ridiculously easy how-to? It’s after the jump! Keep reading »
We seriously can’t wait for “The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus” to come out, but for now, we’ll settle for its star, Model Citizen Lily Cole’s outstanding hairdo. She could’ve gone for a perfectly polished blow-dry (like the ones we’re beginning to see on the red carpet again), but we like this toned-down version. To get the look, blow-dry until it’s almost there but the ends are ever so slightly damp. Work a cream stylant like John Frieda Straight Fixation Smoothing Creme into the ends and twist large sections (about four total) around with your fingers. Air-dry and traipse off to your film premiere or, ah, work. [Paris, 9/30/09] Keep reading »
We’ve jokingly talked before about why women cut their hair, but here’s a historical example we didn’t really consider: war and its economic impact. The U.K.’s Telegraph recently reprinted a 1939 article dealing with trends in women’s hairstyles.
Back then, we learn, ladies were switching to short styles out of practicality and thrift: “Women who had cultivated romantic coiffures for which they had grown their hair 12 inches, are having seven of those inches cut off. Hairdressing is returning instead of hair-building.”
So, how have our thoughts about going short in times of economic crisis changed since the ’40s?

While designers in New York and London were sculpting elaborate hairdos this year at Fashion Week, Marni went the opposite route by covering it all up—just goes to show you that you that sometimes revealing less is sexier. At the designer’s summer 2010 runway show in Milan, models sported bright, printed headscarves and chunky jewelry, giving off a jet-set vibe that we’re dying to try out ourselves. While it’s probably not a look you can wear to the office (unless you have a casual/stylish work zone like The Frisky does!), a Marni-inspired headscarf style would be great for weekend wear (bring on the large sunglasses) or going out (we’re thinking skinny jeans, a clutch, and some vintage jewelry).

This gorgeous Siamese cat deserves an honorable mention for pulling off Amy Winehouse‘s signature beehive with elegant aplomb. To get the look, you’ll need a rat tail comb and multiple doses of hairspray. This one should do the trick. [Pets Rock 2010] Keep reading »
This weekend a friend told me that she washes her hair almost every single day, and I was kind of stunned. I started making the calculations: If you wash and condition everyday, that’s around 10 extra minutes per day spent in the shower. Plus, if you blow it dry, let’s tack another 30 minutes on to that and we’re talking almost five hours per week spent on fussing with your hair. (This is a frugal estimate too, since I’m not really factoring in the kind of days where you bust out a complicated hairstyle that involves braids, a perfectly polished blowout or a fancy updo.) Of course, if you have thick monster hair like me, maybe you can get away with less shampooing — and most stylists warn that overwashing is ultimately bad for your scalp and hair since you need to let those natural oils do their job. Then again, if you have fine or thin hair like my friend does, the grease factor can get really unattractive really fast. I prescribed her a regimen of cutting down to four times a week bolstered by Bumble and Bumble hair powder, a talc-like starch you can work into greasy roots to absorb some of the oil. Will keep you posted on how that works out. But now I’m curious: How often are you washing your hair? Do you resent the time it takes or is it just a way of life? Keep reading »
