How To Style A Faux Hawk

Despite rumors to the contrary, mohawks are not “soon to be everywhere.” Unattractive, perpetually over-gelled and a staple mostly reserved for those who are trying too hard, it’s simply not a hairstyle that we see gaining too much traction any time soon, New York Magazine. But while the thought of the masses cropping their locks into that woefully misguided style makes us feel like gagging in advance, we are willing to make a concession for: the lady faux hawk.

You see, though it does technically copycat the mohawk in its singular focus on one protruding hair ridge down the center of the head, it does so with much more class and dignity. Plus, if you decide you’re sick of playing the badass, you can easily wash it out the next day. We’ll show you how to master our beloved faux hawk after the jump. Keep reading »

The Age-Old Question: Blonde Or Brunette?

Supermodel Lara Stone has made a big splash for her curvy figure, and her appeal is all wrapped up in that whole Brigitte Bardot blonde bombshell thing. (That “thing” never gets old, now does it?) That’s why it’s sort of surprising that she’s gone a more demure brunette for her second big French Vogue cover. Personally, I have a bit of a girl crush, so I’ll take Lara whether it’s blonde, brown or blue. Which do you prefer? Keep reading »

Dudes: Please Stop Waxing Your Chests!

When did guys start waxing their chests? All I have to say about that is: It’s got to stop. If we wanted you to look like us, we’d date us. We want guys to look like guys, no matter how hirsute that makes you. That’s why we love you. Because you are what we are not. True story: I think the first time I saw some guy’s chest hair waxed into a distinct shape was about seven years ago. I was on the set of an adult movie. The guy was Ron Jeremy. And his chest hair had been waxed into the shape of … a heart. It was both totally horrifying and vaguely endearing. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Swim Cap By Philip Kingsley

If you have sensitive or colored hair, you know that pools are your nemesis, making discoloration and brittle ends inevitable. This may no longer be the case thanks to hair genius Philip Kingsley’s Swim Cap, $33, a deep conditioner that actually waterproofs your strands. The idea is you apply the cream under your swimming cap pre-dip, and your hair absorbs the protective formula first and guards against the harsh effects of chlorine. It’s also a good option for beach-goers looking for protection against sun, wind, and salt water. As a regular swimmer, I’ve found that the product hasn’t tampered at all with my blond hue, and even leaves my hair softer and shinier after I rinse and blow-dry it. I’d recommend Swim Cap for non-swimmers as well looking for a good weekly hair conditioning treatment. Keep reading »

Do Your Hair for Under $20

Bargain shopping for makeup is easy, but it can be a challenge to spend under $20 on traditionally spendy hair products. We tried and tress-ted (ha, sorry) a few little numbers and found a few that make the grade — whether you’re going for high volume or stick straight — but won’t make your wallet cry. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Beyonce Rocks (?) Curly Bangs

We noticed our good friend Courtney Dunlop over at the Stylelist blog posted this rather disturbing pic of Beyonce out on the town wearing one of the most questionable hairdos of all time, the curly bang. (Although maybe she just needs to read our post about how not to look a hot mess?) It seems like even a star of her caliber is having trubs pulling this look off, leading us to pose the question: Can curangs ever look good? [Stylelist] Keep reading »

It’s Baaaccckkkk: How To Style The French Twist

Just when you thought ’70s and ’80s hair was dead and gone, the fall 2009 runways up and resurrect those looks. Spotted on the Brian Reyes runway was the one and only French Twist! But, before you skip the rest of this post and head on to the next, hear me out: This fall’s version is not what you’re thinking. Reyes’ version was sleek from the front and adorably retro in the back, making it the perfect complement to this fall’s classically shaped dresses and short hemlines. Here’s how to pull it off yourself. Keep reading »

We Are Agog Over Lady Gaga’s Hairpiece

Has Lady Gaga been taking style inspiration from The Frisky? Maybe! The wacky fashion-loving pop star went on a Japanese television show to perform an acoustic version of “Poker Face” while wearing this elephant-shaped hair sculpture. We recognized it instantly as one of the Nagi Noda creations that we discovered a few weeks ago. The Japanese artist (who died last year) made, among other pop-art pieces, these animal-shaped headpieces molded out of human hair. Should have known that something so bizarre would turn up in Lady Gaga’s wardrobe, naturally. [NY Mag, TheFrisky] Keep reading »
