Attention, ponytails: You’ve got some competition! Braids are taking over as the go-to, chic-for-every-occasion hairstyle on celebs, models and, now, you.
• Thank God this is one award TSwift didn't take. • Where's Andrew Koenig? • Perfect waves while you sleep?! • People are scum. And here is your evidence. • So Billy Corgan is not with Jessica. I think. • No more sexy time in the iTunes store.
You've all seen it: the side braid. Supposedly made infamous by Lauren Conrad, this look has been seen on red carpets, runways and LA sidewalks alike. I don't give Ms. Conrad credit for this hair gem (or the books she's "written"), but I can show you how to do it.
If you’ve read any of my DIY columns, then you probably know I’m completely in love with hair flair! I love a good headband, head-wrap, and now I’m really into adding some bling to spice up a normal hair day. And although I love a bold hair flair statement, I also like elegant and simple hair accessories, too, like sequined and rhinestone bobby pins.
As a native Minnesotan, the frigid cold of winter is nothing new to me. And while the snow might be pretty sometimes, dry skin and hair never is. Keeping your hair moisturized in the winter can be difficult, but this College Candy girl has worked at a hair salon for three years and is going to share her knowledge on the best products to help your hair weather out the winter on a college budget.
Though grossly under-rated, hair accessories might be one of the best ways to spice up an outfit and add a special flair. Cheaper than a hot pair of shoes and more practical than a bunch of bangles, headbands and hairpins do double duty: they accessorize and pull that hair out of your face.
I used to think I was so cool with my crunchy, scrunched waves back in middle school. And then I realized I was wrong. There's nothing cute about crunchy hair. But unless you really know what you're doing, it's hard to achieve pretty, natural looking waves, especially with a ton of mousse and scrunching.
• Tiger Woods is doin' his girls thang in NYC. • 12 foods for beautiful hair. • Uh oh, Britney's dying her hair again. • These pictures are tripping us out. • Nice outfit, Jennifer Lopez. • 7 resolutions everyone ends up breaking.
I'm a fan of packing heat. From my blow dryer that is. Sadly, I have burned through three blow dryers in the past year. Much like Tiger Woods, 2009 was not good year for them. And then Christmas happened. I asked for one thing and one thing only: the Bespoke Labs T3 Evolution blow dryer.
• Spencer and Heidi get a verbal beat down. • Joe Francis out of money. • Bundle up (and look cute doin' it!) this winter. • Well, hello there, Zac Efron. • The biggest hair trends of the season. • Adam Lambert must tone down the gay.
(Two girls in the dining hall.) Girl 1: I know. I'm the best wing man ever! Girl 2: Well, who's your wing man? Girl 1: (Pointing to her breasts and shimmying) I've got two.
I'm not really a fan of traditional up-dos. You know, the ones with the spiral curls that are pinned neatly together and sprayed with enough hairspray to destroy the ozone. Maybe it's just me, but I've never really been into pageant hair. I prefer something a little sleeker and sexier, not to mention something that doesn't quadruple my carbon footprint.
Here's a quick little updo that's messy, yet still really cute, unlike those amazonian hairstyles we've been seeing on the runway! It's a super easy style for class, or perfect with some fun hair accessories for going out. And since messy is in, everyone can make this 'do look good.
It’s no secret that much of the college social life revolves around drinking. We drink to celebrate, mourn, express loyalty to our football teams, to ease boredom, hell, some people drink to make homework a little more interesting. Well, all that super fun drinking sometimes results in not-so-fun consequences, like the raging, horrific hangover trying to escape your brain by splitting it open.
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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..
• Today is every math geek's dream day. • Ryan Reynolds getting his own X-Men movie! • Would you wear eyebrow bling? • Will heat ruin your hair products? • Victoria Beckham looks really good in undies. • Gay marriage is legalized in Maine!
This week’s showdown is between two of our favorite celebs to watch (as they completely meltdown into a pile of crazy mush): Amy Winehouse and Britney Spears. Who is more of a train wreck? God, that's a tough call, so let’s break it down.
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.
Want longer lashes? (Wow, that sounded like a CoverGirl commercial.) Well, now you can get them WITHOUT MASCARA. Yeah, you heard right.
