  • Check out these photos by artist Endia Beal, who got white women to get so-called “Black hairstyles” and then pose for portraits in a series called “Can I Touch It?” Beal, who is Black, said she wanted to challenge the notion of what baby boomers consider to be a professional appearance in the workplace.  [Colorlines, Slate]

Neon Pixie Cut Hairstyle

I am obsessed with this cut and color. Possibly to an unhealthy degree. Doesn’t it look like she got hit by a bolt of neon hair dye lightning that gave her not only awesome hair but also superpowers, “Secret World of Alex Mack”-style? But even if the superhero part isn’t true, it’s still a badass hairstyle all on its own. [Goldwell US]

Haim’s Hair Secrets — And A New Song — Revealed!

Haim's Hair Secrets -- And A New Song -- Revealed!

See those ladies up there? That’s Haim (rhymes with lime), America’s favorite Jewish sister indie-rock group. See all that hair? It is the stuff of modern legend. It’s the kind of hair that makes me ponder extensions and cast quiet incantations willing my follicles to grow a foot of bouncy, swingy, perfectly ombred hair over night. Thank god for The New York Times Style section, and their brief but extremely informative article on the maintenance of these shiny-haired goddesses. Quoth their stylist Candice Birns: “Those girls are my little Shaggy McShaggersteins.” Truer words were never spoke. Read the article, absorb every word, and listen to this bonus track off their debut Days Are Gone, after the jump. Keep reading »

Vanessa Hudgens Takes A Seasonal Hair Change Literally

Vanessa Hudgens rocks leaf-toned hair for fall

Vanessa Hudgens has taken the concept of a seasonal hair switch-up to new heights by literally changing her hair color to match the season with a dye job that mimics the changing fall leaves. The actress posted this photo to Instagram alongside the caption, “Autumn hair ;),” which leads us to believe she’s well-aware of this play on words (and weather). It’s a cute idea, but I don’t know about the execution. Honestly, I’m really starting to embrace and appreciate natural (or natural-looking) shades in my old age, and Vanessa’s brown roots are so classic and flattering on her. But who cares what I think — what’s your take on this tri-toned look? [People Style Watch]

Debate This: Are “Mohawk” Or “Mohican” Hairstyles Kinda Offensive?

Debate This: Are "Mohawk" Or "Mohican" Hairstyles Kinda Offensive?

This morning, my girl friend, who is a beauty writer, sent me an email with a link to a Stylist UK post about the hair and makeup on the models for the Issey Miyake show at Paris Fashion Week. The runway models had their hair pulled high up into sleek ponytails crafted into a ridge coming out the top of the head. Stylist UK called the style — dubbed “the Mohican” — “a high-maintenance take on the punk classic.”

Mohican (also called Mahican) is obviously a reference to the Native American tribe from what is now the central New York/Massachusetts area. (Mohegan, which sounds similar, is actually a different Native American tribe from what is now Connecticut.)  At some point in the history of punk rock, punks adopted the Mohawk hairstyle and the “Mohican” style, too. (I’m sure we’re all, of course, familiar with Mohawks — another hairstyle worn by punks that clearly takes it’s name from the Native American tribe, the Mohawks.  These days, there are other variations, like fauxhawks and ponyhawks, which Wikipedia tells me is what Sanjaya Malakar wore on “American Idol” back in 2007.) The hairstyles get referenced as being “punk,” but their true original source is Native American. As my friend wrote, “I know that in the UK ‘mohican,’ can refer to a punk rock hairstyle, but I’m still giving this major side-eye.”  That got me thinking.

Jennifer Aniston’s Secret To Perfect Hair Is Unbelievably Easy

She’s famous for a whole host of reasons, but one of the first things that pops into anyone’s mind when they hear the name “Jennifer Aniston” is how freakin’ perfect and amazing her hair is and has always been.

I mean, can you ever remember a point when she had a bad haircut? And don’t even try and tell me that “The Rachel” wasn’t super cute and enviable. You know you wanted it back in the ’90s. (Everyone did.)

Her locks have only gotten more stunning since her “Friends” days, and now finally, Jennifer is sharing her secret to gorgeous hair. Read more at The Stir…
