If you have hair extensions made from real hair, you’ve probably wondered where they came from and whose head they once belonged to. The New York Times investigated the hair extension business, and the atmosphere sounds to us like the making of a James Bond-like conspiracy movie.

Channing Tatum‘s just a boy with a new haircut. And while lots of folks are blasting it as the must uggs thing ever, I think it’s cute and would like to defend it. Why?

Adult women either love wearing barrettes or feel too mature for them. But these Tiny Twig Hair Pins are sure to unite both sides of the barrette debate.
