The Everything Guide To Curly Hair

title
I spent all my tween and teen years battling my hair, only to slowly give in to the fact that it was utterly unmanageable. Over time, I learned how to get better haircuts, but the managing part remained mysterious—and strangely dependent on many factors, like humidity, heat, moon cycles, and whether the wheat crops were facing northeast that harvest season. That, until I met with Spoke & Weal founder Jon Reyman this summer. As I sat in a black boyfriend tee (it's the salon's version of a smock) and chatted with Reyman at Spoke & Weal’s SoHo location, all the secrets of curly hair came undone. Here is Curly Hair 101.     Washing It If you are an adult with thick curls, by now, you’ve...

When Did People Stop Wearing Clothes To Awards Shows?

landscape-1441036956-elle-vmas
A competitive game of less is more.It's a common complaint post-runway show: No real woman would ever wear that. But, really, no real woman would ever wear this: GETTY +C FLANIGAN Or this:GETTY + MICHAEL TRANObvious costumes aside, this did seem to be the year when skin was very, very in at the MTV Video Music Awards. Like, in a way that makes you wonder why there was a very costly kerfuffle about Janet Jackson's supposedly unplanned nipple appearance at the Super Bowl just a decade or so ago. (Yeah, that wasn't cable, but still.) Awards shows have been building toward this for a long time, of course. You could argue it started with Cher and Bob Mackie—think of the sparkly sheer body-hugging (and body-baring) creations the designer made for...

Thank Pharrell and Helen Lasichanh for solidifying its place.Guys, things are getting a bit out of hand. ​Couples' denim-on-denim keeps popping up on awards show red carpets, and there's no sign of it slowing down. #NEVERFORGETGETTY IMAGESWe're all familiar with the duo who started it all: Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, at the 2001 American Music Awards. The then-couple walked the red carpet in matching outfits the Internet will never, ever let them forget. THERE ARE NO WORDSGETTY IMAGESThen, for the 2014 MTV VMAs, Katy Perry, with date Riff Raff, paid homage to Britney and Justin in matching Versace-designed custom denim outfits.  That evening she tweeted to Spears, "I did my best impression, hope u likey!"​ to which Spears responded, "Just when I thought the denim dress...

Street : A Suit Can Be Just As Feminine

Sarah-Ann-Murray-Pitti-Uomo-Tommy-Ton-800x534
SARAH ANN MURRAY DURING PITTI UOMO, SPRING 2015. PHOTOGRAPHY BY TOMMY TONThe vibrancy of the Yves Klein Blue amongst all those dapper gentlemen at Florence’s biannual men’s tradeshow Pitti Uomo speaks volumes. It takes a bold statement to stand out in such a well-dressed group of men. I love how Sarah, who’s known for always wearing a bespoke suit, has found a way to wear her fashion week uniform but in a refreshing, effortless way. From her mirrored aviators to her signature red lip, it’s the perfect balance between casual and elegant, and masculine and feminine. Summer is generally a time for dresses, but I feel a suit can be just as feminine and, in many...

These Harry Potter Lipsticks Are So Magical, They Broke the Internet

2
I consider myself a major Harry Potter fan. I've reread all the books more times than I can count, been to the theme park, and even conducted a small choir as they sang "Double Trouble." While I'm still waiting on my Hogwarts acceptance letter (owl post is so unreliable sometimes), I'm gearing up for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them with LA Splash's collection of Potter-themed liquid lipsticks. The range features 17 shades of the brand's popular (and waterproof!) Smitten Liptint Mousse ($12), inspired by many of your favorite characters and concepts from the series including Sirius Black, Tonks, and Luna Lovegood.
