Laura Mercier Cinema Noir Collection: Fall for this Femme Fatale

Deep, dark, and naturally tantalizing. With drop-dead black at the forefront of Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 trends, it is only to be expected that film noir makeup would follow suite. Exploring the sultry era of 1940s Hollywood, Laura Mercier nails the trend with her latest collection. Cinema Noir is inspired by hard-edged yet feminine stars like Ingrid […]

Paul Mitchell INKWORKS: Are Cotton-Candy Streaks To Dye For?

Proenza Schouler gave their runway a pastel tint, so to speak, back in 2010. Then Ashley Olsen was among the first, followed by Kate Bosworth, and then January Jones, among others: shifting their hair into punk-meets-pretty territory with cotton-candy streaks. Whether they’ve committed to Smurfette tips or tried just a taste with a baby-pink highlight, […]

Today’s Hair Trend: Add a Pop of Color

The Pop Of Color (POC) process is not to be confused with “chunking” of hair; rather, it’s a play on highlights and lowlights.

Kristen Stewart as New Face for Balenciaga Fragrance: Total Sell Out

I cannot believe this is the choice of Nicolas Ghesquière, this is an obvious marketing move to take advantage of the Twilight fans’ buying power.
