How To Take Your Festival Hair Back To Real Life

Untitled-1
Those intricate festival under-cut braids, crown braids, and side braids are *everything* in the moment and on the grounds. But, after a day (or three) of wear and tear, the tight-weaving, extra pinning and general take down can leave you with crazy-stubborn dents and waves that won't work with you without a complete re-wash. Turns out, you can in fact make that hair work to your best advantage without having to lather up. Click the video to see how using a Paraben-free leave-in conditioner like Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Intensely Smooth Leave-In Conditioner can transform your hair from fried to fly in mere minutes. Look for formulas like this one, with super fruit Argan oil, which helps to keep frizz...

Every Type Of Diet, Explained

landscape-1497711755-mcx070117fe-wellness-004-mod-rs
Creating a healthy lifestyle is hard. It's even harder when you have no idea what anything means. We consulted a registered dietitian, a celebrity nutritionist, and an internist to help break down the trends. Alkaline Diet The goal of an alkaline diet is to reduce the acidity in the body—which will supposedly aid in treating or preventing diseases—by nixing foods that are on the acidic side, like meat, dairy, eggs, and grains. Blood Type Diet This diet centers on the claim that certain foods have chemical reactions specific to your blood type and sticking to foods your blood type reacts positively to will help you shed pounds, give you an energy boost, and improve your overall health. Clean Eating There isn't an exact definition for clean...

Did You Spot The Major Mistake In The Kim Kardashian X Kylie Cosmetics Collab?

landscape-1497445177-kylie-jenner-kim-kardashian-lipstick-mistake

When Kylie Jenner teamed up with her style twin Kim Kardashian for a makeup collab, the beauty world was rightfully shook to the freaking core. The totally nude line debuted a new velvet lipstick formula that was so epic, Kylie added it permanently to the Kylie Cosmetics lineup.
But there were a few hiccups along the way to lipstick success (probably goofy af ones, like Kylie gets). For one, the promo pics looked like bacon. Sorry, Kim, but they did. The second mistake was pretty massive – but you probably didn't even notice it.

MilkMakeup-TheCenter-GlitterStick-01-Stevie+Jeffrey+Merlot
After days of teasing us with videos of people vogueing on Instagram, Milk Makeup finally announced its new mystery product. To celebrate Pride month, the brand is dropping its Milk Makeup Glitter Stick today. The limited edition addition to the inclusive beauty brand's popular line of sticks was made in partnership with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center (The Center) in New York City. The Glitter Stick just landed on my desk, and I'm already obsessed. Of course, it's packed with glitter in every single color of the rainbow. However, the hues aren't bold or bright. Instead, they have more of an iridescent, pastel vibe. It's like Milk Makeup's popular Holographic Stick went to a disco and came back...

Five million people keep up with Sara Sampaio every day on Instagram with good reason: Amidst behind the scenes photos from Victoria's Secret shoots with fellow Angels, red carpet snaps, and enviable travels, she treats everyone to some serious beauty inspo. A true hair and makeup chameleon, the Portuguese model pulls off everything from goth dark lipstick, to beach waves and slicked ponytails, to bold eyes with bold lips, and even bare-faced selfies. We caught up recently with the Moroccanoil beauty ambassador to test out the brand's new sun collection. Here, she shares some of her favorite beauty tips with ELLE.com:

1. She washes her hair every day. "With my hair, I only need two things: A good haircut and a good...

Infinity Braids Are Weaving Their Way Through Instagram

18950413_1430818290346516_7611878325752954880_n
Despite having natural chocolate-brown hair that I love, I still follow more hair colorists on Instagram than actual people I know. I live vicariously through the bright rainbow-haired people that come up on my Instagram feed and occasionally dream of dyeing my hair like the mother of pearl trend. Megan Schipani, a stylist at Bescene Studios in Rockville, Maryland, is one of my favorites to follow. Better known as @shmeggsandbaconn on Instagram, hair creations with clever names like "spicy watermelon" and "summer quartz" throughly entertain me. Lately, she's been styling her clients' hair into a braid that is much more intricate than the fishtails. She calls them "infinity braids." Turns out, #infinitybraid has about 4,822 posts, and #infinitybraids has another 419....

Why Anita Pallenberg Had The Original Cool Girl Bob

01-anita-pallenberg

Those who like their beauty with a side of modern bohemia will be saddened to hear of Anita Pallenberg’s death. An icon in her own right, the German-Italian actress leaves behind a legacy of more than a dozen films, two children with musician Keith Richards, an unofficial reputation as the sixth Rolling Stone—and of course, a larger-than-life persona as one of the original devil-may-care blonde It-Girls of the Sixties.

For the Rolling Stones, Pallenberg was more muse than groupie, credited with singing background vocals on “Sympathy for the Devil” as well as dating both Brian Jones and Keith Richards, who likened her to a Valkyrie in his 2010 autobiography, Life. But besides her inherent fashion sense and...

How To Stay Festival Fresh

There’s no denying it; festivals are not the freshest of places. Luckily, Vogue has put together a keep-fresh-kit to go alongside your wellies, fringed denim and flower crowns, allowing you to stay (relatively) clean this festival season.

Fresh Fragrance
 

There’s nothing worse than the smell of stale, day-old perfume – especially in hot weather. Leave your heavy floral scents at home and try one of the many fragrances formulated to mimic the smell of freshly washed cotton. Warm Cotton by Clean Reserve and Fresh Laundry by The Library Of Fragrance are particular favourites.

1497339607-1497022064-untitled-1

We've all been living for Cara Delevingne's chrome dome ever since it sparkled down the Met Gala red carpet. She decided to go bald for her new movie Life in a Year, where she plays a dying teen.

The more we embrace who we are as people and rely less on our physical attributes, the more empowered we become. Beauty shouldn't be so easily defined. It is limitless.

So Here’s Why Some People Go Prematurely Gray

GettyImages-615944268

There is a lot of misinformation floating around when it comes to why some people go gray early. We blame the silver, wiry strands on stress, blowing drying our hair too often, and even harsh treatments and dyes. But as it turns out, science hasn’t proven any of those to be causes. But one actual reason for gray hair? No drumroll here; it’s genetics.

According to Dr. James Kirkland, the director of the Robert and Arlene Kogod Center on Aging at the Mayo Clinic, chronic stress isn’t the leading cause of gray hair like we thought, it all comes down to your parents. If either or both of them went gray pretty early, chances are you will too. While your DNA is out of your control, there is one...
