Talk about an “extreme makeover”: a UK high school removed mirrors from the girls’ bathrooms after girls flouted the dress code rules about makeup. Shelley College in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, once allowed female pupils over age 14 to wear “discreet” makeup. But “five or six girls … the ones who wear the most makeup” continually overdid it in the tastefulness department, so the school felt forced to respond. Now all female students except for those in their six form (the British equivalent of 12th grade) are forbidden from wearing makeup at school and mirrors have been removed from the girls’ bathrooms to boot! “There comes a point when you need to stop teachers spending half an hour in the day talking to girls about their make-up,” the school principal told the UK’s Daily Mail. “It is more sensible to say it’s not allowed.” All teachers have been given makeup remover in case a girl runs afoul of the ban.

A heady combination of yellow and green, the color chartreuse was named after the French liqueur of the same name. It’s not the easiest color to pull off, but we love how dynamic and cheerful it is. Check out 10 must-have chartreuse pieces after the jump!
Foosball, cricket, video games and hot dogs — it’s just another afternoon at Sydney IKEA‘s new “man cave,” where weary husbands and boyfriends can unload while the womenfolk go shopping. I know you’re expecting me to start ripping my hair out at the gender stereotypes here. And I will, in a moment. But I actually think this is a good idea from IKEA corporate’s standpoint. If whining make the customers leave before they spend more money, get rid of them. It probably costs IKEA very little to distract men in their new “man cave,” while allowing the person holding to credit card to cha-ching! even more. Children have their own play station at IKEA — it’s called Smaland — and now another group not known in aggregate for their dedication to long shopping excursions have their own place. I just wish it weren’t so “dude” specific. Not all women love shopping and us ladies would love a “man cave” of our own. [YouTube] Keep reading »
Deciding to make a drastic hair color change is quite a daunting task, but figuring out how to adjust your makeup look can be even worse, especially if you’re going from dirty blond to Sara Rue red. Such is the dilemma of reader Rachel, who sent us a beauty distress mayday recently. You see, Rachel is worried about clashing her lip and eye colors with her new dark red hair, but she needn’t worry because TF has her covered. First off, let us congratulate Rachel for having the guts to go from one hair color extreme to another. Let us also say that we would never criticize or caution against wearing any color of eyeshadow, lipstick, or blush regardless of hair color. Makeup is supposed to be fun, right?! So if you like a particular color then, by golly, wear the hell out of it. It’s all about attitude, and don’t forget that makeup can be wiped or washed off. Keep reading »

I was just looking at our traffic report yesterday and we got a boatload of new visitors arriving at The Frisky because they wanted to see Scarlett Johansson’s butt photo. For those of you who came for that reason and then clicked on over to this post, I hope you are just as impressed with our clothed physiques. Here is what we are wearing today!
