Whether they’re on the job or relaxing on vacation, everyone in Hollywood seems to have thick, voluminous hair. But it’s not that there’s some magical “celebrity hair gene” that’s inaccessible to non-famous folk. The reason why most of your favorite stars have full hair (or appear to, at least) is because they have pros — like celebrity hairstylist and Color Wow global creative director Chris Appleton — who have tricks for making fine hair look fuller.
I can trace my personal obsession with plaid skirt sets back to my first viewing of Clueless, sometime in the late ‘90s. The cult classic spawned countless trends that would go on to define the era, from fur-lined cardigans to slinky slip dresses (which were, in fact, dresses, according to Calvin Klein, anyway). But it’s the plaid skirt set — featured prominently on the movie poster — that instantly cues up all sorts of nostalgia for the days of beepers, trips to Blockbuster, and beverages like Snapple and Fruitopia.
Look, it’s been a long and rough couple of years. Some days (many days) it feels like a challenge just to change from sleep pajamas into work pajamas. But when you’re the bachelor on this season of The Bachelor, there are few, let’s say, unspoken style rules — namely that you probably should dress to impress when you’re on a group date with a bevy of well-heeled women.
The reasons to love pearls are numerous. To name just a few: They’re elegant, timeless, and versatile. You could throw a strand or two over an oversized sweater, or wear them with an LBD á la Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. So it’s no wonder that Pinterest is predicting that you’ll be seeing all things pearl — a trend dubbed “pearlcore” — in 2022, from the actual gemstones themselves to the signature iridescent hue showing up on accessories. And pearlcore nails — stone-accented or pearlescent-painted manicures — are also expected to be one of the year’s buzziest manicure trends.
Nothing about Kanye West and Julia Fox’s whirlwind romance has been what one might call casual. From their first date on New Year’s Eve in Miami to an evening out in New York City complete with a Broadway show, full wardrobe fitting, photo shoot at celebrity hotspot Carbone, and a spread about the whole thing for Interview magazine, the pair seem to be welcoming the attention being thrown their way — and are doing so wearing a bevy of beautiful clothing.
Florence Pugh is a chameleon not only in acting but also when it comes to beauty. Case in point, this past weekend the Black Widow star changed her hair color once again and dyed her bleach blonde “mixie haircut” (i.e. a short pixie-mullet hybrid) back to dark moody brunette.
Among the rainbow of hues you can pick from to apply to your lips, there’s one shade category that’s been exponentially rising in popularity: plum lipsticks. The bold class of burgundies and rich purples are currently the it-color to grab for your makeup bags — and some shades’ fandoms are so devout they’ve become increasingly difficult to get your hands on.
The noughties were a golden era for perfumes. From the bondage-rope trussing of Dior J'Adore Infinissime to the cutesy bows adorning Chloe Rose Tangerine – not to mention the gallons upon gallons of Impulse body spray lingering in changing rooms across the country – it was an era of decadent bottles, sickly-sweet scents, and cutesy floral notes.
Stop the press. ICYMI, Gen Z’s favourite retro noughties boot brand UGG is back in fashion and is doing the rounds on TikTok, where all trends are confirmed at the altar of clout. Not only are fans doing anything they can to get their hands on a pair of the Ultra Mini boots by cutting old UGG boots, they’ll be lusting after the latest collection too. Say hello to UGG’s waterproof collection of rain boots.
Finding skin care products that are cruelty-free, affordable, and have powerhouse ingredients can sometimes feel like a challenge. Thankfully, UK-based brand Facetheory checks all three boxes, and their Regenecalm Pro serum, which has over 1,500 rave reviews on their site, lives up to the hype.
There’s no denying that ’90s fashion is having its moment in the style spotlight, with trends from the era taking center stage on the runways and blogs alike. One ’90s trend that was once considered, well, less than fashionable (or downright ugly, if we’re being honest) has come back in full force in the ’20s. That’s right, we’re talking about the Canadian tuxedo. Not sure what that means, or what it even looks like? We’re breaking down the complete history of this once controversial look below.
Just four days after the passing of influential fashion journalist André Leon Talley on Jan. 18, the fashion industry has lost another great. Fashion designer Manfred Thierry Mugler’s death, of “natural causes” on Jan. 23 at the age of 73, was confirmed via the designer’s and the brand’s official social media accounts.
When it comes to intimate apparel, it really all comes down to what's going to make you feel your best. If that happens to be a corset and a G-string, all power to you. However, if you want your lingerie to be both sensual and comfy, the hunt for the perfect piece becomes a little more challenging, especially if you're shopping online. Yet, it's not impossible to find an undergarment that ticks both boxes. The best sexy, comfortable lingerie pieces look ravishing without feeling restricting, and the 21 options below all come with rave Amazon reviews too.
Burt’s Bees’ lip balm is a case study in “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it." It’s one of the first products Burt’s Bees founders Burt Shavitz and Roxanne Quimby made in 1991, and there’s a good chance this golden tube of zingy lip balm was one of the first things you ever bought with your own money. The simple, all-natural formula hasn’t really changed over the past 30 years, either: The best Burt’s Bees lip balms all contain the brand’s signature, responsibly sourced beeswax, a natural emollient that works to condition dry lips and retain moisture. But the company has since rolled out a few updates to the original lip balm, including equally nourishing (and affordable) lip tints, shimmers, and treatments.
While there’s a lot of beauty buzz surrounding skin and hair care products that are free of parabens, phthalates, and other potentially harmful ingredients, what you put on your nails should be an equally important part of the conversation. The best non-toxic nail polishes are formulated without at least the three main aggressors found in traditional nail polish formulas: dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, and formaldehyde — otherwise known as “three-free” polishes. But these days, the market is flooded with polishes that are free from up to 16 potentially harmful additives. And beyond leaving unfavorable ingredients out of the picture, a truly great non-toxic nail polish will have a high-performance formula (read: long-lasting, chip-free, applies smoothly, and has great color payoff), and come in a wide range of gorgeous shades.
Perfect for exercising, running errands, or simply lounging around at home, leggings are one of the most versatile clothing items — but they’re not all created equal. The best high-waisted leggings are made with a generous amount of spandex or elastane for stretch, and they come in a variety of lengths, colors, and even eye-catching prints — there’s truly an option for every style. Plus, many are opaque, if you’re looking for a pair that’s non-see-through.
With few exceptions (like my wedding dress, for example), my personal priorities when buying clothes include comfort, cost, and their ability to make it look like I put just the right amount of effort into my appearance. You know, so in case I run into someone, they don’t immediately ask why I just got up from a nap in the middle of the day. Depending on the day and the occasion, sometimes this means that my outfits need to actually look nice, and not like I’ve been chilling at home for the last however-many days. This can be a careful balance to strike, which is why I very much appreciate these comfy and cozy tops and dresses that look so expensive on, but are all under $30.
When it comes to hair relaxers – heavy-duty chemicals that permanently straighten tight curls – you tend to find that Black and mixed-raced women vividly remember their first time. The eye-watering strong smell of hydroxides, the tingling sensation on the scalp, and the anticipation for the reveal of poker-straight hair in the mirror. Whether you performed the process in a salon or with a DIY kit at home, the results can often be a mixed bag, and for every success story of shiny sleek hair, there are just as many scabby-headed horror tales. For me personally, it was the latter, which is why my first-ever relaxer experience was my very last.
If there’s one thing Bobby Berk is good at, it’s jaw-dropping home makeovers that are completed within record time in front of an audience of millions. (Does he ever sleep?) In short, he’s a whiz at decorating under pressure; that’s why — when we went on the hunt for budget-friendly home decor tips — we turned to the Emmy-nominated host of Netflix’s QueerEye. (Spoiler alert: He delivered.)
