What It’s Like To Go Glamping At Firefly Music Festival

1497456151-lead-16x9

For Montreal-based beauty blogger Alex Centomo, festival season isn't just about indie bands and non-stop dancing. It's a months-long marathon of moments to show off her signature boho style and envy-inducing mermaid waves. To help us get some of that this summer, we trailed the 26-year-old YouTube star as she put her styling skills to the test in the great outdoors: glamping at Firefly Music Festival.

Embracing wet hair The whole doing-your-hair-in-the-wilderness and embracing-your-natural-texture thing? So cool for festival season, says Alex. "A blowout is so not worth it in the summer—I say, play up whatever natural texture you've got!" Good thing, since primping in a tent means finding a cute wet hairstyle that dries to perfection. But...

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...

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...

Girl Recreates Cara Delevingne’s Disco Head After Losing Her Hair To Chemo

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.

Now an 8-year-old queen-in-the-making has taken on the look, basically proving to one and all that bald girls do it better. As reported by Refinery29, Brooklyn Hutchinson, who lost her hair after chemotherapy treatments, got her first-ever makeover and chose to accentuate her beautifully bald head...

How To Get Bella Hadid’s Scarface Hair

gettyimages-692757550-1496761421

Both Hadid sisters are noted fans of clip-in bangs—but there was something about Bella Hadid's look at last night's CFDA Awards that took her hair to another level. Maybe it was the retro vibe of it all. After all, Scarface hair is one of the most covetedhairstyles of all time. Or maybe it was just that it felt decidedly fresh and different; the rounded bob was the cherry on top of a perfectly executed '90s look by Virgil Abloh and Off-White.

How This Bombshell Model Does Easy Summer Hair

00-lede-barbara-palvin-summer-hair
At Cannes, la Croisette serves as an incubator for summer beauty trends, with a seemingly unending wash of South of France sunlight inspiring the season’s hair mainstays. And though bobs, buns, and blowouts have each had their turn in the Riviera spotlight, effortlessness is the defining characteristic of the insouciant styles that stick. Just ask Barbara Palvin. The Hungarian model made the most of her visit to the Côte d’Azur, showing off two takes on long and easy lengths that are enough to make one shelve a warm-weather impulse to pick up the scissors. Today, Palvin’s cascade of golden brunette hair pulled fluent focus as it swung over shoulders, with two slim side sections gently rolled and secured at the back...

Lily Collins Has a Breakfast At Tiffany’s Moment In Cannes

When in Cannes, bigger is almost always better. Black tie frocks are adorned with thigh-high slits or mile-long trains (or both). Simple necklaces become 50-something carat Bulgari statement pieces. And glamorous choices, like evening updos or statement lips, must be bold enough to not only withstand the flashing lights of megawatt bulbs, but also the test of time. So when beauty risk taker Lily Collins arrived in the French Riviera to promote her science fiction drama Okja, she enlisted pro hairstylist Jen Atkin to make her look like an award-winning retro starlet. “Going out with a bang,” captioned Atkin on Instagram, in reference to the actress’s flirty and newly fringed updo. And while Collins, 28, is no stranger to a whimsical...

Dior Cruise Makes a Case For Hat Hair

gettyimages-682110118-1494598726

Last season it was leather berets in Paris, this season it was Western-inspired hats against the backdrop of the Santa Monica mountains. It's safe to say Dior's Maria Grazia Chiuri isn't afraid to show hat hair on the runway. But the hair at the 2018 Cruise show wasn't just brushed and tucked under the brim—it was styled into the prettiest rumpled, low braid.

Backstage at the show, the models had their hair set into small, tight ringlets. Once cool, the rumpled curls were then pulled back and braided starting at the shoulders-down. The braid was secured at the end with a tiny black ribbon tied into a bow. Then a bandana was added across the forehead before...

How Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Gives My Flat Hair Volume and Texture

big-sexy-hair-feature1
I'll get right to it: My hair is generally flat and limp and thin and lifeless and terrible. It air-dries into a stringy, straight-over-here-but-wavy-other-there mess that no cream or balm or low chignon can fix, and when left to its own devices, it’ll mat itself to the crown of my head and cowlick toward the front. Fun! Adding to the terribleness of it all is the fact that I have a long face: If my hair falls apathetically alongside it, it looks almost comically long. If that sounds like a first-world problem, it’s because it is—but it’s enough to make me invest half my annual salary in volumizing shampoos, teaser combs, and thickening sprays. But there’s one product—my desert island product, if...

How 6 Women Maintain Their Unicorn Hair

landscape-1493384955-unicornhair

When I dyed my naturally black hair to silver last December, and then purple-pink in February, I faced a steep hair care learning curve. It opened up a whole world of products and techniques my formerly low-maintenance self never even knew about. The best way I learned was to talk to women with brightly dyed hair—I'd literally stop them in the street and ask them what shampoo they used. Thankfully, you won't need to do that. We asked experts who have tried every wild color under the sun how they keep their hair looking vibrant and feeling healthy. Judging by the ongoing unicorn craze, this will come in handy for all of you ready to take the rainbow-colored plunge.
