Do You Bring Pics In To Share With Your Stylist Too?

Whether you're going to a new hairdresser or trying out a drastically different hairstyle, communicating your vision to a hairstylist isn't always the easiest thing to do. There are two ways to go into this—bring a picture of a celeb with exactly the look you want (and hope they can execute it accurately) or…

Quick Beauty Tip: Hair Color And Short Hair

A few months ago, I decided to lop off all my hair and get a short pixie cut. I knew going into it that I'd have to get my hair cut more often to keep up the shape. What I didn't consider as much was my color (I've been highlighting my hair blond forever). I…

What Makes Short Hair Chic And Not Mumsy?

Love Heidi's new-ish short cut. .. L-O-V-E. A little while back I was inspired to chop off my hair to about the same length—I wanted a chic, modern 'do and what I got was a total soccer-mom-inspired look. Ick. For some reason, I just couldn't get my slightly-above-the-shoulder-length hair to look anything but…

Are You Sporting A “Recession” Haircut?

The U.K.'s Telegraph recently reprinted a 1939 article dealing with trends in women's hairstyles. Back then, we learn, ladies were switching to short styles out of practicality and thrift:…

Quick Pic: Lighten Up, Kelly!

Kelly Osbourne looked like a Debbie Downer at the "Terminator Salvation" premiere last night. Could her new hairdo be teaching her that blonds don't really have more fun? If there's anyone who could turn that frown upside down, it's gotta be the flick's butt-kicking stud of a star, Christian Bale. [Hollywood, 5/14/09]…

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…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Is Short Hair Really A Boner Killer?

I just read the world's most obnoxious article in The New York Daily News. According to the reporter and his panel of experts/douchebags, short hair on a woman is a total turn-off for men. Unfortunately, this is hardly the first time I've heard this and I can't help but wonder if this "rumor"…

Slideshow: Sweet & Sexy Short Do’s

I blame Gwyneth Paltrow circa 1997 for why I do not have the balls to cut my hair. Back during my senior year of high school, when I was zitty and spectacled and decidedly not cute, I decided it would do much for my self-esteem to chop my hair off like the then-girlfriend of Brad…
