Achieving that Brigette Bardot-esque “bedroom hair” look is damn tricky. I tried it once, and instead of getting sexy, sultry, I-just-rolled-out-of-bed sexpot locks, I wound up with messy, unkempt, Amy Winehouse-in-her- darkest-days hair. Not pretty, to say the least. To make sure I get it right the next time, I consulted Liam Carrey, stylist from New York’s Ted Gibson salon, for his top tips on how to get glam — not grunge — bedroom hair.
1. Consider what your hair naturally does in the morning, and use that as your inspiration.
“Bedroom hair” is soft, not particularly well-manicured hair with lots of texture and loose, tousled messiness — essentially, what you get when you just wake up, but prettier, Carrey says. After you drag your butt out of bed in the morning, look at your hair in the mirror, paying careful attention to the volume you get at the crown and the natural waves and bends it has taken on. “Creating your ‘bedroom hair’ look should be a cleaned-up, prettier version of your reflection,” he explains.

Oh yes, it’s ladies night, but the feeling is not quite right — the actual perk may be as outdated as the song. Being a woman has its advantages when it comes to getting into nightclubs, but are they fair? When we flip the tradition and examine the idea of just a “gentleman’s night,” the discrimination is glaringly obvious. Las Vegas resident Todd Phillips is sick of being a second-class citizen in his city just because of his gender. Taunted by a gym club billboard that offered free enrollment to women, Phillips felt penalized for his penis. So he decided to take action by filing a complaint with the National Equal Rights Commission. “When you have one price for men and one price for women, that’s clearly discrimination, clearly sex discrimination,” Phillips argues. And the man has a point! Sure, the gender equality feminists fought for protects us all, ensuring our rights to the same wages, respect, and opportunity. However, Phillips is finding out that the statewide statutes about bias based on sex or sexual orientation are more like policy suggestions than prosecutable orders. Even the ACLU isn’t sure he has a leg to stand on. But Phillips is a male trailblazer and promises to fight for his right to work out the same way women do — for free! After he takes the gym to court, he’s planning on going after the clubs on the Vegas strip like the MGM/Mirage for favoring ladies. [Las Vegas Now] Keep reading »
In tonight’s 200-meter individual medley Olympic final, Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte will have another swim-off — while Phelps won this race in the 2004 Olympics (and has been cleaning up the gold medals in 2008), Lochte won silver and will be his fiercest competitor in this rematch. But there’s a far more important stand-off to decide between these two teammates and friends: Who Would You Rather…Michael Phelps or Ryan Lochte? Keep reading »
