This YouTube video of a man — who refers to himself as “The Illusion” — giving himself a sweet bowl cut seems to have jumped right out of that world. “The Illusion” lives in Malibu, California (natch) — “somewhere o…

At What Age Will You Chop Off Your Locks?

Let me rephrase that. Do you have a set age, in your head, of when you expect it’ll be time to chop off your hair? The New York Times had an interesting article in its style section this weekend about how, when a woman reaches middle-age, she is almost expected to cut off her hair…

Beauty How To: Cut Your Own Bangs — If You Dare

Bangs can be pesky. They grow out quickly. Without experience, taking matters into your own hands isn’t the best idea. (Case in point: My dad once decided to cut my bangs when I was 7.
