Jennifer Lopez Reveals a Dramatic Hair Look That Channels This Iconic ‘60s Supermodel

00-story-image-verushka-braids (2)
The updo is reaching new heights. Whether it’s Kendall Jenner’s half-up topknotor Rihanna’s shiny low bun, the classic look has been given new life thanks to actresses, models and musicians who are putting their unique stamps on the no-fuss style. The latest celebrity to debut a scene-stealing pulled-back hair moment is Jennifer Lopez, who posted a close-up of her glamorous braided updo on Instagram. But there’s nothing easy or nonchalant about this plaited moment. Created by hairstylist Chris Appleton, who also works regularly with Kim Kardashian West, the labor-intensive updo was created for Lopez’s appearance on World of Dance — and it takes a few noteworthy cues from a certain iconic ’60s supermodel. Captioning her photo “Veruschka vibes…,” Lopez was well aware that the woven style makes...

This Drugstore Product Regrew a Woman’s Thinning Hair In 6 Weeks And The Pics Are Unreal

thinning-hair-treatments-1515612346

If you have thinning hair or naturally fine hair, you know how frustrating it can be to feel like your hair is slipping away little by little every day, and there’s nothing you can do about it. At least, not without experimenting with a cocktail of products, seeing a few doctors, and pretty much living life as a guinea pig until you find something that works for you.

So when one 27-year-old woman on Reddit claimed to have pretty much regrown her hair in only six weeks—with the before-and-after photos to prove it—the internet naturally freaked out. “If you’re a woman experiencing hair loss, I totally sympathize with you, as it left me in tears for...

Lupita Nyong'o can do no wrong in my eyes. I would buy tickets to watch her read the phone book (kids, before the internet and smartphones, people kept contact info like names, address, and phone numbers in actual books). Tuesday night, she stepped out at the National Board of Review Gala in a midriff-baring Balmain two-piece topped off with a mass of Senegalese twists coiffed into a side pony updo by celebrity hairstylist Vernon François. And yes, if you look closely, you can see those baby hairs are laid for the glory of Mother Mary. Peep her hair from the side, and you'll find a few well-placed feed-in braids, adding a cool dimension to the style. It gives the classic '90s look of twists a modern update...

hair-trends-2018-1513112956

We hate to break it to you, but Madonna is a liar. Time does not go by so slowly (slowly), because it is almost 2018, and we're pretty sure it was just 2007 yesterday. Which means all of this year's best beauty trends, like eye-of-the-tiger hair, super-sleek middle parts, and platinum buzz cuts are about to disappear into ether of beauty trends past to make room for whole new fleet of selfie-worthy looks.

And to help you stay ahead of the curve, we got the lowdown on the exact haircuts and colors that are pretty much guaranteed to infiltrate your Instagram feeds in a few months, ahead.

Want a bold twist on braids? Try these braided bantu buns with braids I created on Serayah, singer and actress of Fox’s hit series Empire (she plays Tiana Brown, if you're already not obsessed/watching!) — set to her newly released single "Driving Me," featuring Jazze Pha.

Watch and learn:

1. Section off a center part. Using a rat-tail comb, section off the front half of your hair (from 1-inch past your ear) from the back half of your hair. Clip the back section into a bun to keep it out of the way, and then part a 1/2-inch section of hair down the center of your head to your crown. 2. Section your hair some more. Again, using a rat-tail comb, part your hair into a thicker...

How To Get Chic French Girl Hair

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.

After we saw the antithesis of a high-maintenance hair & makeup at the Alexander Wang show in NYC, Burberry in London and Bottega Veneta in Milan - it was the French...

Meet The Artist Whose Extreme Long Hair Is Taking Over Instagram

00-story-image-sara-cath
While the bob was undoubtedly the calling card of the Fall 2017 shows, the Spring 2018 season was all about extreme long hair which popped up everywhere from Marques’Almeida to Michael Kors Collection, where supermodel Kirsty Hume—and her Rapunzel-like mane—made a show-stealing appearance. And a quick look around social media proves that over-the-top lengths are not exclusive to the runway. Case in point: Los Angeles–based photographer Sara Cath, whose lion-like cascade of copper curls has helped her rack up more than 40,000 Instagram followers and counting. It might be hard to believe that the 21-year-old—who, in addition to shooting high-octane portraits of fellow millennial artists, just appeared in Rosetta Getty’s Georgia O’Keeffe–inspired collection—hasn’t always carried the hear-me-roar type of confidence her waist-grazing mane no doubt symbolizes. But, at just...

Did This Milan Fashion Show Have The Prettiest Beauty Look Of Them All?

landscape-1506361448-gettyimages-852234986-index

With the jumble-y algorithm and newfangled nine-grid—when all the people want is for their feeds to be arranged chronologically, please!—it takes a special image indeed to stand out in the double-speed fast-forward of Instagram. That might explain the feathery/wavy/reverse/every-which-way eyebrows of the past few months, but as seen as Milan Fashion Week, maybe the craftiest like-trap isn't designed to shock at all.

As this reporter was flicking through Insta fast enough to dislocate a baby-boomer's thumb, one relatively quiet picture was enough put the brakes on. (Note the lack of stunt makeup and nipples.)

1 Lather Up If dry shampoo is your go-to time-saver, we have some bad news: It does not actually clean your hair. Trichologist Anabel Kingsley, who studies the health of the hair and scalp, warns against infrequent shampooing—that is, fewer than every three days. It puts you at risk for scalp irritation, she says, which can cause hair loss, and product buildup will make hair look dull and heavy. Use a clarifying shampoo once every three or four weeks to completely remove excess oil and product residue. For...
