Hair Tourism: Women Are Traveling Great Distances for Their Preferred Hairstylists

beauty-passport-lede
Twinkly-candle dinners in Notting Hill, a browse at Browns, a working lunch at Soho House—Julia LeStage, a media executive from Boston, has her London itinerary down. But her nonnegotiable first stop off the plane? Her top priority? The magnetic pull across the Atlantic? It's…[opens Burberry trench]…sexy blonde British bed head. That's because a couple of times a year, when her roots are showing, LeStage hops into a chair at George Northwood in Fitzrovia. She gets London-made blonde, messy layers at the same salon where Alexa Chung's shaggy lob was invented. And sometimes she brings her three daughters along, too, for their haircuts and a “tong” (Brit speak for messy curling-iron waves). For the four LeStage women, it's exactly the kind of...

Jewelry Designer Noor Fares’s Burmese Sojourn

landscape-1487367436-elm030117fobjetsetter-003
As a child, Noor Fares was fascinated by gemstones and amulets. Now the Lebanese jewelry designer seeks inspiration from her travels, such as a two-week trip to Myanmar (formerly Burma) last spring, where Fares and her husband, artist Alexandre Al Khawam, toured cities, lakeside villages, and Buddhist temples. Part of her latest collection—called Akasha, the Sanskrit word for "ether"—is drawn from the amulets and silver pendants of Myanmar's Inle Lake region. "I kept coming across pendants with concentric, bulbous circles," Fares says. "They put them on strings, like local amulets, representing the universe and balance." The Paris-born, London-based designer, whose debut collection was picked up by Harrods, developed an interest in prehistoric symbols as an art history student at Tufts...

A Food Lover’s Guide To London

landscape-1487192086-hbz-the-list-00-index

London may be known best for its typical British beige classics, like fish and chips served with mushy peas, sausage "bangers" and mash, Sunday roast beef and Yorkshire pudding smothered in gravy. But don't be fooled. The last five years has seen a monumental shift in the way Londoners approach food. Street-food markets have inundated the city and Michelin Stars are no longer mandatory for a mind-blowing meal. As one of the most multicultural cities in the world, London is embracing its unique advantage in the food scene—and it's being more celebrated than ever before. Here, BAZAAR.com brings you 12 ways to eat like a local when dining out in London–just in time for London Fashion Week.

Why You Should Visit Montreal This Winter

00-holding-reasons-to-visit-montreal-canada-this-winter
Canadian winter is nothing to joke about—there’s a reason that the majority of the population lives in the southern section of Canada, near the country’s southernmost border—but that doesn’t mean that all things come to a screeching halt once the snow comes. On the contrary, wintertime is when Canada’s cultural landscape really comes alive, and when its distinctiveness from the United States feels most pronounced. No Canadian city feels more “far away” in the winter than Montreal, a city known for its culture, food and beverage scene, and lingering European influence. This year marks the city’s 375th anniversary (to put that in perspective, Canada is celebrating its 150th), so the time feels especially right to find out why people have lived...
