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.

A manâ€™s hair says so much about him — especially if heâ€™s bold enough to be bald. But since every lady loves to run their hands through Greek god-like ringlets (right?), some men in New York set out to see if a perm would have the same power. The gentlemen were simply looking to spice up their look, but thatâ€™s quite a risky move considering the permâ€™s potential resemblance to the jheri-curl (see the video, after the jump). Still, Todd Lamb, an author and humorist from Brooklyn, convinced 15 of his friends to do up their ‘do and he compiled the results in a book called Yo, Check The Perm! Will this guy trend catch on? Perhaps you hope it doesnâ€™t, but after seeing the proof in these pages, the perm might be ready to rise again!

Whoa. Just last night while we were watching The Hills and thinking, “Lauren Conrad has such pretty hair. She probably has a stylist do it before the cameras turn on, but still. Even when she’s hungover after a long night fighting at Area with Brody, she still looks fab as she sits and doesn’t work at Teen Vogue.” College Fashion Blog has read our mind and has a How To Guide to Lauren’s many hairstyles. Now if only we didn’t find flat ironing our hair so effing boring. [College Fashion Blog] Keep reading »
