CC Beauty Live: Bangs Like A Nike Swoosh

How many times have you tried to make your bangs do that Hollywood perfect swoopy thing and failed miserably? It's hard - no, nearly impossible - to create that perfect swoop-bang that your hair stylist does so effortlessly. Mine (love you Amber!) taught me this little trick, which has made her well known about town for her amazing bangs. Seriously, girls actually ask for "Amber bangs."

Livin’ It Up Even After Labor Day

Labor Day may be an awesome third day to a typically-too-short weekend, but sadly, it’s also pretty much the last day of summer. But just because those summer days are drifting away, does that mean the fun is o-v-e-r? Not for CollegeCandy readers! Psh, we can have fun no matter where we are and September is just brimming with some awesome stuff to take part in.

Pretty in Green

Although I am a firm believer in leading an environmentally-friendly life, I am first and foremost a college-aged woman. And what does that mean? It means I am absolutely unwilling to look ugly just for the sake of the environment.

Why You Should…Shave Your Head

Every girl has a love/hate relationship with her hair. If her hair is straight, she wishes it were curly. If her hair is curly, she wishes it were straight. Frizz is constantly on the attack and there are never enough bobby pins. Yet, our hair can either make or break a look, so we spend hours planning, executing, and perfecting our style.

CC Beauty Live: Soft Curls

Have you ever tried curling your hair only to end up with tight, Shirley Temple style curls? Or, worse, attempted to use a curling iron and ended up with blistered fingers and straight, fried hair? Well then I'm here to help! Contrary to popular belief, it's not hard to achieve soft curls or waves. And you don't have to be a professional to do it.

Summer’s Hottest Hair Accessories

Even short haired girls know, a summer outdoors is a hair disaster waiting to happen. Cruising in a convertible. Spending a windswept day at the beach. Biking with friends. Floating your day away in a pool. They all sound fantastic right about now, don't they? Well your hair doesn't agree.

Makeup 101: Beat the Grease and Frizz This Summer

There’s nothing I love more than summer, and sometimes my hair agrees. I love the waves that salt water puts in my hair, and the fact that I can just throw it up and go out. But what I don’t love is the greasiness and frizziness that accompanies the excessive heat. If I’m not looking over-gelled like Danny in Grease, then I have a minor fro going on comparable to a clown.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Bangs

Now bangs are everywhere and they add so much fierceness that I just have to have them back. And I can do it...all by myself. Cutting your own bangs seems totally scary, but if you are careful and do it right, you can have a salon look without paying the salon price.

Miss Manners: How to Leave the Salon Unscratched

I always leave salons with bad hair cuts. (Although I must admit the last one was my fault- it should have tipped me off right away when I realized the hair stylist did not speak a word of English.) Anyway, last week reader Josie asked us to feature an article on hair-salon etiquette. Here's to you Josie..

I Love You, Band (But Stop Being So Annoying)

Dear (See Below) Bands, I love your music. Love, love, love. But can you maybe try to be a little less annoying? It makes it so hard to defend you when I tell my friends about my favorite artists. Actually, it makes it hard to admit to anyone that you happen to be one of them. And I want to make them like you, really, I do.
