Here’s a reason to throw on a Saves The Day record and break out your journal: Emo kids might actually be destroying their eyesight with their stupid haircuts. Doctors in Australia say that asymmetrical haircuts — popular with the emo set — are causing an epidemic of lazy eye. “If a young emo chap has a fringe covering one eye all the time, that eye won’t see a lot of detail,” said Andrew Hogan, of the Optometrists Association of Tasmania in a no doubt adorable Australian accident. “And if it happens from a young age, that eye can become amblyotic.” So the lesson here? Mamas don’t let their babies grow up to be emo kids. And if they do, they’ll possibly have a wonky eye. [The Mercury]
I’m getting a haircut tonight, so I’m about start this annoying cycle all over again. It never ends!
Good bangs can make all the difference between having just-okay hair and a totally amazing ‘do. When “banging,” you really need to consider both the shape of your face and how you want your hair to interact with your cheekbones. Not every face can carry off every bang. Accordingly, we’ve provided some fringe inspiration to make sure that you get the most “bang” for your haircut buck.
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 so that it can no longer be described as “long.” Keep reading »

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. I was left with a straight-edged tuft of hair three inches above my eyebrows. I still haven’t recovered). Yet, with a bit of training, doing a trim yourself isn’t too hard. After the jump, some tips from Annamarie Tendler, a Vidal Sassoon-trained hairstylist and makeup artist. Keep reading »

I’ve been growing my hair out for 10 years, ever since I got a totally tragic close-crop days before graduation from high school. I had kind of low self-esteem and I was majorly obsessed with Gwyneth Paltrow’s new short cut (you know the one — it closely resembled then boyfriend Brad Pitt’s hair too) — I came to the conclusion that if I cut off all my hair just like hers, I, too, would be pretty. Fat chance. The haircut, for starters, was poorly executed. Additionally, my hair was still in that post-puberty stage of frizzy horribleness — and I did not yet understand that flat irons and blow dryers could be my friend. The haircut was a disaster and I have spent the last 10 years growing it out, associating prettiness and femininity with length.
