Spring is a time of renewal. The days get longer and warmer and the flowers bloom and slowly but surely we start pulling our shorts and mini skirts out of the back of the closet. To help welcome the new season, I highly suggest you take a break from spring cleaning and head to the hair salon for a new look. Here are 5 simple ideas for fresh spring haircuts. Use them as a jumping off point and ask your stylist for an interpretation that would work best with your hair texture and face shape. Remember: change is good!

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 »
In the last 12 to 24 hours or so, two celebs have appeared on separate red carpets with two very similar deep side parts, and I sort of love it—check out Milla and Sienna, above. This marks a clear shift: For, well forever it seems, every celeb rocked the middle part (think Demi Moore and Jennifer Aniston to name a few). But this new development is actually great for 80 percent of the population with hair on their heads. Side-parts are way more flattering on way more people and I for one, love the romantic feeling the look invokes. Wanna know how to get one? Read on… Keep reading »
Leave it to America’s favorite trendsetter, Michelle Obama, to remind us about versatility and resourcefulness. This week, the First Lady showed up to a White House event looking like she had lopped off her hair. Turns out, she didn’t cut an inch, but fooled everyone with a fake bob style. A wonderful way to mix things up for long-locked ladies, or to test-drive a short haircut, the ‘do is easy to achieve, and even looks good when it’s not perfect and a bit messy. Here’s how to do it.

We’ve kept silent while Dov Charney has screwed around with fashion.
We put up with the pervy advertisements.
We put up with Charney masturbating in front of a Jane reporter.
We put up with his numerous sexual harassment lawsuits.
We put up with messing with our main mensch, Woody Allen.
But we’re not going to take it anymore—the scrunchies must be stopped. Keep reading »
Are you having a good hair day? You probably are if you’re living in one of these cities. (And, ahem, you’re probably not if you live in one of these thirteen worst hair cities). We looked at humidity levels, pollution, rainfall, average wind speeds, water hardness, demographics, and the number of beauty salons per capita to find which cities have the best conditions for healthy, stylish hair.
After the jump, the best — and worst — cities for hair. Tell us what you think the best and worst cities are for hair in the comments! Keep reading »
Now that the seventh season of “Dancing with the Stars” has come to an end, we decided to take a look back at host Samantha Harris and her extravagant outfits. We have come to the conclusion that her hairstyles are either hit or miss. It seems so much attention is paid to dress selection, that her hair is an afterthought. Maybe next season, Rachel Zoe will be a contestant and her assistant Taylor can be Samantha’s stylist. After the jump, our assessment of five of Samantha’s hairstyles… Keep reading »
Many women find it necessary to dye their hair darker when fall hits because light hair just doesn’t look good with pale, winter skin. But making a drastic change like this can be a difficult decision. To help, we’ve put together a slideshow of celebrities who have gone from dark to light or light to dark. Find one with your complexion and see which hair color suits you. And if you still can’t decide, maybe you should just go for a happy medium brown. Keep reading »
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.
