Naomi Watts Tries Out a Shorter Style

Arriving at the Louis Vuitton show in Paris for fashion week, Naomi Watts appeared to have adopted a shorter haircut. The actress, who we saw plenty of during award season, tried out the textured lob trend with a seemingly pinned-up style. This versatile look is taking Hollywood by storm, with stars such as Nicole Richie and Karlie Kloss wearing the trend. The shorter style may be making waves, but we’re not sure if Naomi will be next to actually make the cut. What do you think of the look on Naomi?

Allison Williams Shows Us How to Wear Carolina Herrera’s Runway Hair

When we saw the über-elegant twisted hairstyle that came down the runway at Carolina Herrerathis past fashion week, we immediately began scratching our heads to figure out how to replicate it, but Allison Williams beat us to the punch. Her centre part with a twisted up ‘do is an easy way to translate Herrera’s oversize rolls. Achieving this style is surprisingly simple.

Mist your second-day hair down with some hair pray, like ghd Final Fix Hairspray ($15.60). Part your hair in the centre and pin one section to the side. Starting at your ears, twist the free section down your head until you reach the nape of your neck, and secure the twist with bobby pins. Repeat on the second side. Pull the loose hair on either side together, twist into a bun, secure with bobby pins, and finish with a mist of hairspray. You’ll look like you just stepped off the runway.

 

Whitney Port’s beauty tips

For many of us the day doesn’t end at 6 p.m., in fact, sometimes it’s just getting started. Parties, dinners, and nights out on the town mean sometimes being a little tired is the badge of a fun life–but looking tired is no fun at all. The solution? Perfecting an a.m. routine to look and feel fresh and rested!

“Removing your makeup before bed eliminates so many of your problems before you wake up and have to look at yourself in the mirror!” Port says. In the morning the designer applies Finer Skin Institute’s Hydrating Masque ($36) before using an old-school trick. “Put two spoons in the freezer in advance. When you wake up, take them out of the freezer and lay the backs on your eyes. The coldness really helps reduce swelling and redness,” she says. “Then grab a refreshing fresh juice.”

“Can you really make your hair grow faster?”

“Can you really make your hair grow faster?” is a question every woman asks following the inevitable bad haircut. Do supplements really work? Are there topical treatments?

Can you make your hair grow faster?

Kind of. Your hair is only genetically capable of growing so much, but you can give it a nutrient boost to make it perform at its full potential. Most people will notice faster-growing hair by upping their intake of the right nutrients. “Hair is a non-essential tissue, so if you’re deficient in something your hair will be the last to get what it needs to grow,” says Dr. Kingsley. Before you start taking vitamins, consider your diet: hair is 90 percent protein, so making protein a part of at least two meals a day is imperative for change.

Everyone says prenatal vitamins are the secret. Fact or fiction?

A little bit of both. Taking biotin or prenatal vitamins has become very popular for getting longer tresses, but they’re not really necessary if you’re already taking a multivitamin. Why? Their active ingredients—folic acid, iron, biotin—are found in in the multis below. The one pill that does have a serious advantage is Viviscal’s Hair Nourishment System, the model/editor-approved supplement for thicker, faster-growing hair. The formula’s anchored with AminoMar, a deep-sea fish protein, but it also has a healthy dose of biotin, iron, and horsetail extract (another good hair helper). A box will last you a month and you’ll need to take it for several months to see a real difference, making it a pricey option. Our advice? Try a multi for a few months and see if it helps first.

So what should I look for in a multivitamin?

The nutrients that will help most with growth, thickness and overall health are vitamin D, iron, and B vitamins like B-3 (niacin), B-7 (biotin), B-12 (cobalamin), and B-9 (folic acid). So what’s the best way to get them? In most cases popping a good multivitamin can cover your bases.Women’s Multivitamin and One A Day’s Women’s Formula  are high in all the above.

What can I do in the meantime, until the vitamins kick in?

Once you’ve started supplementing your diet with the right nutrients, you’ve pretty much maxed out your hair’s growth and thickness potential, but there are products on the market that can temporarily make your locks fuller. Nioxin has a range of products that plump up strands, from thinning hair systems to styling products. We especially love their Diamax Thickening XtraFusion Treatment ($40). Apply to the roots of damp hair before styling for thicker hair. Preventing breakage is also paramount for fuller hair. Ask one of our stylist to pescribe the best home haircare for you.

While there isn’t an overnight solution for better hair, little changes can result in a big improvement over time. “You really want to blend a few different things to help your hair,” says Dr. Kingsley, and it helps to think of your hair the way you do your skin—if you’re using a cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer for the latter, you probably need more than one step for the former. Dr. Kingsley adds, “It’s a whole picture.”

This Has To Be Miley’s Wildest Hair Yet — & We Kind Of Dig It!

This Has To Be Miley’s Wildest Hair Yet — & We Kind Of Dig It!

Lately, Miley Cyrus has been burning through grunge and punk styles, and that applies to her hair,  not just her fashion. From going blonde to chopping it all off, the new ‘dos are part of an interesting, decidedly post-Disney style evolutionfor the young star.

The latest move? Coloring it blue, of course!

Though some will claim blasphemy at seeing their favorite brunette-gone-blondie looking so blue, we’re all for her devil-may-care attitude. That, and we’ve been primed by Kelly Osbourne to have a fairly deep appreciation for pastel hair.

Miley’s barely there, uneven dye job lets her former blonde — and naturally dark roots — show through for a result that’s haphazard in the best possible way. Throw in red lipstick and a crop top, and she’s good to go. (The Huffington Post)
