Hell, if I was a rich celebrity with all the money, I would hire Anh Co Tran to do all of your hair too, dammit, that’s just how awesome I think he is. You get a haircut, and you get a haircut, and you get a haircut — we all get HAIRCUTS! The LA-based hairstylist…

Are You Paying Too Much For Your Haircuts? (Hint: Probably)

Mobile payment company Square recently announced they’ve found the national average for a women’s haircuts comes in at $44. That’s not as egregious as some regional averages, but it could definitely be cheaper! Nationwide, women’s haircuts were found to be 50 percent more expensive than men’s, with the average cost for a men’s haircut is only $28.

Jessica Biel Looks Worlds Better Following A Fresh Bangs Snip

Finally, a major positive improvement on the fringe front! Jessica Biel trimmed up her sheepdog bangs into something shorter and choppier, and they look infinitely better. Was this mod, ’60s-ish vibe what she was going for all along? It’s very Jane Birkin and, as with all things Birkin-esque, I strongly approve … and she looks pretty…

Face-Off: January Jones Vs. Jessica Chastain In Battle Of The Bobs

I hate short hair on myself, and out of my own bob-induced fear I usually feel pretty meh about it on others, but there are definitely some ladies who can wear the hell out of the big chop. Take Michelle Williams, for instance — her pixie cut not only channels the influential Vidal Sassoon style…

11 Things Your Hairdresser Really Wants You To Know

It’s hard out there for a hairdresser. They have to be talented, tactful, efficient, and up to date on the latest trends and techniques. They have to be able to create wearable art on people’s heads while discussing salacious celebrity gossip. I’m totally in awe of the people who do this job, and when I…

Sadly True: Girls & Haircuts

I’m about three months late on getting my hair cut. My bangs are cowlick-ing funny, the ends are kind of fried, and the shape could best be described as “poofy.” Even though I always love what my hairstylist Jay — hey, girl! — does to it, I kind of dread getting even just a trim.

Tilda Swinton Got A Bad Ass Haircut

Tilda Swinton’s bob in her new series of ads for Pringle of Scotland is absolutely breathtaking. We thought she was pretty badass before, but her new cut, which Swinton dubbed “warrior girl fringe,” takes her over the edge. Utter hairspiration. [Daily Mail]…

Jennifer Aniston Hated The “Rachel” Haircut

“Have there been disasters? I think that’s a very relative term with hair. Let’s say there have been moments I’d rather not relive, like that whole Rachel thing. I love Chris [McMillan, her hairstylist], and he’s the bane of my existence at the same time because he started that damn Rachel, which was not my…

Bad Haircut Blues: Go Shorter Or Deal With It?

I have a question to pose to the class. Last week, I got a horrible haircut. Now, to say it is The World’s Worst Haircut would be stretching it, but it’s still pretty crappy. How can I describe it for you … think: Donny Osmond meets David Cassidy meets JTT circa 1996. First of all,…

How Do You Deal With A Bad Haircut?

Have you ever had a really bad time at a hair salon? Recently I went to a salon to get a dye job — a well-known salon with what seemed like a good reputation. After an expensive and not very pleasurable experience (in which the salon owner told me I shouldn’t come back unless I…

Janet Jackson Cut Off Her Hair!

Most people celebrate their birthdays by opening gifts and blowing out candles. Janet Jackson marked the day a bit differently. For her 44th birthday, Janet went a little bit crazy (in a good way) and cut off most of her hair! (Either that, or she normally wears wigs and opted to go without.) Just two…

Is There Such A Thing As A Man-Repelling Haircut?

A few weeks ago, I chopped off all my hair. For the most part, I’m loving it, but I’ve also been having a weird/hilarious adjustment period. My latest thing is that I’m convinced my hair is man-repelling. That is to say, I get the sense that guys find the look intimidating, the same way they…

Should I Get A Cut Or Color First?

I go to two separate hairdressers for my cut and color, yet often I like to schedule both appointments within a few days of each other to take care of my hair as quick as I can. Perhaps you also have stylists you stay loyal to, or you’re pressed for time and need to make…

Ever Get Your Hair Done At A Beauty School?

Have you ever gotten your cut or color done at a beauty school or through a salon training program? You hear such mixed things about this. If you happen to get in with a fancy salon during a hair model day, you can walk away with a magazine-worthy ‘do … or a disastrous look. Try…

What’s Your Haircut Horror Story?

Just when you thought we couldn’t blame the recession for anything else, here’s one more negative impact: bad hair. The Wall Street Journal just published an article about how sales of clippers (such as the infamous Flowbee!) went up as the economy sputtered and made the reasonable case that families and even individuals are resorting…

How Much Would You Pay For A Good Haircut?

Is $24,000 too much to pay for a haircut? The obvious answer is yes! But not when you are the Sultan of Brunei. The 61-year-old, who is said to be worth an estimated $24 billion, paid exactly that to have his hairstylist Ken Modestou cut his hair. The British barber has been cutting the Sultan’…

Making The Cut: Why Women Chop Off Their Hair

The alt band Pavement once sang, “Darlin’ don’t you go and cut your hair, do you think it’s gonna make him change?” True, when a woman lops off her long locks, it’s often assumed that her action was a result of man troubles. Fair enough. I’ve seen this happen to several friends after breakups a…
