This Hair Colorist Creates Dreamy Hair Inspired By Nature And The Results Are Freaking Gorgeous


When it comes to coloring your hair the possibilities are endless. Stuck in a rut and can't decide what dye job to do next? You can now find inspiration in all the beauty of ~nature~ — at least that's what colorist Ursula Goff does. Based out of Kansas, Goff has garnered an overwhelming response to her fine art series where she's created famous paintings on hair, but she's also known for coloring her clients' hair — and her own — using photos of nature.

OMG MY PHONE HAS BEEN BROKEN ALL WEEK!!! But my AMAZING husband fixed it for me and so now here's my latest color, inspired by a sparkly rock I found while in Arizona. #rainbowhair #mermaidhair #unicornhair #behindthechair #modernsalon #btconeshot_rainbow16 #purplehair #goldhair...

The Products That 4 Models of Color Swear By


Shades can be melded to match complexions and leave-ins cocktailed to define any number of coifs, but there’s nothing like having that one miracle product that perfects without any adjustment. Here, the secret weapons that four models of color swear by.

This article originally appears in the October 2017 issue of ELLE.


Conceal Zeal

“I hardly use foundation—my go-to is Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum,” says model Mayowa Nicholas of her preference for spot-treating with the concealer obsession that she swipes under her eyes (in the Golden shade) to soften dark circles before charging the catwalk.

Break Out The Flatiron: Flipped Ends Are Clawing Their Way Back


Last week, the internet learned that Bella Hadid talks like she's doing one long audition for 21 Jump Street. Before we reveal why this is relevant, let us first revisit her legendaryComplex interview because it is a terrific waste of seven minutes, plus you could time the pause between the "gonna" and "like" in the "homeboy's gonna, like, get it."

But there's another reason to pay special attention to Bella Hadid—and that would be her hair in this video, which is worn flipped out at the ends like we used to do in the late '90s/early aughts! Gah! It's baaaack. This isn't the first time Bella has pulled out ye olde wrist flick with a flatiron or round brush (provided you have the dexterity to end...

Those Weird Spots On Your Face Could Actually Be Melasma

Recently, I was chatting with a friend who mentioned how her skin suddenly developed a weird, blotchy, brownish rash when she was on vacation. “It looked like a bunch of acne scars above my lip and on my forehead, so I thought it was just a new crop of freckles,” she said. But, when she finally went to the dermatologist after three weeks of my daily, pushy reminders, she discovered it was not, in fact, freckles, but melasma—a skin condition that can happen to literally anyone. *Cue scary music* Just kidding; it’s not the kiss of death, but it is incredibly annoying. “Melasma is a complex condition that causes hyperpigmented patches on the skin,” says all-around skin wizard, Annie Chiu, MD,...

This Instagram Video Proves That Red Concealer Is The Key To Flawless Skin

Fact: Color-correcting is confusing. I’m a beauty editor with a lifetime of hardcore love and devotion to studying makeup, and I still have to take a second when faced with a concealer palette filled with 60 shades. And if you’ve got darker skin—as in, olive, golden, or almond shades that tend toward greenish undertones—color-correcting can be an even trickier endeavor, because most concealers were not made with your skin tone in mind. Because the makeup industry, well, let's just say it's come a long way but we're not quite there yet. But that’s where red concealers come in. Yes, bright-red, lipstick-looking concealers, which are swiped over dark circles and dark patches to cancel out the green-ish, blue-ish undertones present in darker...

We Relate To These Spiked Brows On a Deeply Personal Level​


Okay, we know you’ve already been inundated with too many brow trends this year, from the squiggly wave brow, to barbed wire brows, to dragon brows, and you’ve been a really excellent trooper through it all. But the year is not over, and the hellish onslaught of sexual assault-riddled news is most likely just beginning, which means this new brow look couldn't have come at a better time. Meet spiked brows, an Instagram gem that so clearly displays our inner feelings right now of being a woman in modern society, it's almost laughable.

SS18 is all about bare beauty - or as we like to call it, à la française 🇫🇷

If fashion month taught us one thing it's that contemporary beauty is being redefined. Granted, perfect hair and makeup might be the norm with the beauty bloggers and influencers - but on the catwalk it's a totally different story.

De-coiffed hair and barely any makeup fronted the biggest shows of New York, Paris, London and Milan fashion weeks - and it's been probably this season's biggest revelation yet.
