After months of public backlash and legal scrutiny, the makers of the popular Brazilian Blowout are fighting back against allegations that their hair-straightening serum contains formaldehyde. Read more … Keep reading »
I have a question to pose to the class. Last week, I got a horrible haircut. Now, to say it is The World’s Worst Haircut would be stretching it, but it’s still pretty crappy. How can I describe it for you … think: Donny Osmond meets David Cassidy meets JTT circa 1996. First of all, one should never find oneself in this type of situation because we should all be confident and brave enough to stand up to our hairdressers when they start doing something weird, right? Well, call me a wimp, but I stayed silent as some dude flicked his scissors around my ‘do, which became increasingly mullet-like before my own eyes.

Breaking: Willow Smith now has a bowl cut. And despite it looking kind of dorky … it’s kind of dorky in an awesome way. We swear: Willow’s at a point where anything this girl touches turns to gold. (Or at least, A+ hairstyles.) One question. How’s she gonna whip her hair now? Maybe this just goes to show that you don’t need to be a long-haired lady to embrace the hair-whipping mentality.
What do you think of Willow’s new ‘do? Cute? Edgy? Or oh dear? [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »
Noted redhead Emma Stone appeared at a benefit this weekend a newly bottle blonde, allegedly for her role in “Spider-Man.” Add some 40s and an ankle monitoring bracelet and the Lindsay Lohan transformation (“Lohan-sformation”) will be complete. Stop the madness now, Emma! [12/5/10, Los Angeles] Keep reading »
Meet Kaylin Ransom, a 22-year-old resident of Ocala, FL. She spends her weeks doing hair and her weekends in Lake County Jail. The aptly named Ransom is under a plea deal for felony battery and child abuse, and whenever she checks into her “weekend home” she has to take a new mug shot. So following in the footsteps of Naomi Campbell, who famously wore haute couture while performing her community service with the New York Department of Sanitation, Ransom gets glam, in her own way, before taking her mug shots. She’s known for her lace-front wigs, extensions, false eyelashes, and photo shoot-worthy makeup. Now, if Ransom had lesser charges, I’d say this was a unique way of giving the system the finger, but charges of battery and child abuse warrant a lot more repentance, in my book, than getting fly for a weekly jail stay.

It’s easy for us longer-haired ladies to walk into a hair salon with an Us Weekly, find a picture of a starlet whose look we envy, and say “Give me Katie Holmes’ hair.” But what if you’re a lesbian looking for a more butch ‘do — or, hey, a straight girl looking for a super-short hairstyle? Two hairstylists, Marco Roso and Laruen Boyle, created a poster of “queer haircuts” showing a diversity of hair types and styles so that salons, particularly in gay neighborhoods, have a better idea of how to do a ‘do.
I have one question, though: where’s the Bieber ‘do? [AfterEllen.com via Dis Magazine] Keep reading »
