Are You a Chanel Twist or a Dior Bun?

chanel-dior-couture-hair-buns
The Paris couture shows are currently under way, and already two starkly different approaches to the updo have crossed our radar. In one corner, the loose, haphazard twists at Dior, falling gracefully at the nape of the neck with undone wisps and a smattering of bobby pins that telegraph undone urban ease. In the other, the extreme ladylike Chanel hair roll—lovingly dubbed a “croissant” by backstage hairstylist Sam McKnight—which was inspired by a Picasso sculpture and yet channels a certain Star Wars futurism. These two whimsical proposals have spun off a new iteration of a pressing beauty question: Are you a polished Chanel updo or a mussed-up Dior twist? From an aesthetic standpoint, your choice might be clear—after all, croissants aren’t...

BOMBSHELL WAVES

Curious on how to get curls this epic? Mizani Global Artistic Director Cesar Ramirez tells PeopleStyle he uses Conair's Infinity Curling Wand, which has a wide barrel at the base and tapers to a smaller barrel at the end for a more natural look. “I wanted to play with Khloé’s natural curl texture,” Ramirez says. “Plus, I love big sexy hair and I wanted a '70s vibe considering she was wearing a bell sleeved deep cleavage-cut top with a high-waisted pencil skirt.”

1
The latest hair trend isn't a top-knot, it's not a down 'do, it is in fact a perfect combination of the two. The half-bun, aka 'the hun' is the ultimate bad hair day style: so easy and the simplest way to exude an effortless too-cool-to-care allure.   Written by TORY KINGDON, writer for glourmagazine.co.uk Source - http://www.glamourmagazine.co.uk/beauty/celebrity/hair/2015/09/huns-half-buns...

Here's how to prevent this from happening to you. INSTAGRAM Miley Cyrus just experienced every girl's worst nightmare: She cut off a chunk of her eyelashes with an eyelash curler. (!!!) Yes, it can actually happen though eyelash curlers are mostly harmless tools when used correctly: https://instagram.com/p/-Coke5QzAI/ But don't toss your curler in the trash just yet. You can avoid Miley's disaster by taking these two simple precautions. "A huge, huge, HUGE, thing is to make sure you wipe excess mascara off the curler after each use," says celeb makeup artist Joseph Carrillo. "You can't let it get sticky and gunky." Basically, if you have leftover mascara on your curler, your lashes can stick to it, ripping them off when you use it. Eck! Joseph...

Can't talk to another human in the morning without a cup or two of coffee? The next time someone gives you grief about it, you can tell them that coffee is literally giving you life. NPR reports that a wonderful new study links coffee drinking with a longer life. Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health crunched the numbers from studies of nurses and other healthcare workers, which counted 167,000 women and 40,000 men. Their study, which was published in the journal Circulation, sought to see if coffee consumption had any link to longevity, and the results were great for anyone with a Starbucks loyalty card. People who drank three to five cups of joe a day had a 15% lower risk...

Her makeup artist Kate Lee breaks down her look from last night's 'Carol' premiere. GETTY/JEN CHALET Last night for New York City's ​Carol ​screening, makeup pro Kate Lee gave Rooney Mara a striking eye look that was as much a statement as her gown. "The Chanel dress that evening was spectacular, the matte palettes and black lace made me envision a dramatic eye," Lee says. "I zeroed in on a very deep purple." Below, Lee breaks down how to recreate the high-impact eye look. Softening is the trick: PREP SKIN AND EYES "I started out by priming the skin with Chanel's La Solution 10 de Chanel.

I Made My Own #Eggplantfriday Nail PolishTYLER JOE

landscape-1447689246-elle-eggplantnails (1)
Chasing the nightshade-veggie color TYLER JOE While E! News humiliation device, the Mani-Cam, is now retired, a quick #nailselfie search on Instagram reveals nearly 50,000 expertly arranged manicures—nails nestled in bouquets of peonies, grasping handbag straps, cradling polish bottles—proving that pictures of nails are still a thing. But the execution of a nail selfie is actually more complicated than it looks. I know this because each time I visit New York City nail art mecca Paintbox, where there's a hand-sized photobooth specifically for manicure pictures, I fail to leave with an acceptable photo. The one time I sent a Paintbox picture it was by accident, and the recipient responded as though I had photographed a used tampon. Anyway, earlier this week I...
