Maybe it's because my hair is currently in whichever circle of hell is the most humid, but I have tresses on the brain. Virtually all the beauty news this week is about, or at least inclusive of, hair.
In fact, let's start with that hair-inclusive story first...
Kylie Jenner revealed her beauty routine, and The New York Times was like, "Yes, this is New York Times-level newsworthy"
Whether or not you enjoy reading about the Kardashians and Jenners, you have to admit, they're a pretty attractive bunch. So even though I fall in the "I don't particularly give so much as a stale crap" camp, I can see why people would want to know Kylie Jenner's beauty routine and favorite products. I'm not quite sure why The New York Times dedicated over a thousand words to it, though, so I present you with a TL;DR version*:
- TiZO3 Facial Mineral Sunscreen SPF 40
- Super Salve Mimosa Blossom Dream Cream
- Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado
- Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes
- Sephora Collection Face Masks
- Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation
- NARS Blush in Orgasm
- Ardell Wispies False Eye Lashes
- Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Series Contour Palette
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Concealer
- Kardashian Beauty Cabana Bronze Matte Bronzer
- Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder in Pale Yellow
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator
- Victoria's Secret Coconut Passion Fragrance Mist
- Moroccanoil shampoo and conditioner
- Haircuts and extensions: Priscilla Valles
- Hair color: Daniel Moon (though she wants to go to Tracey Cunningham next)
- Spray tan: Jimmy Coco
- Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs
- Manicures: Kimmie Kyees
- Lip injections: Juvéderm administered by Dr. Simon Ourian
(*Let's be real, though: all of this stuff merely enhances an already gorgeous 18-year-old's appearance, and none of it will actually make you look exactly like Kylie Jenner, per se. And you don't need to—duh.)
If you don't buy Salma Hayek's Nuance hair mask, at least take her DIY treatment advice
"I know a lot of good things for hair that you can do, but they’re very stinky. They are SO stinky. You’re better off using my mask!" Salma Hayek told Buzzfeed, referring to her brand Nuance's Intense Hydration Hair Mask. But just in case you can't get to a CVS any time soon, she was willing to reveal her "stinky" DIY tips.
"You can put guacamole in your hair. Not with the rest of the stuff, but you can take avocado and put it in your hair," she explained. "You can take, believe it or not, mayonnaise. Mayo is really good for your hair. Another thing that’s really good for very dry hair is—are you ready for this?—egg yolk. One thing you can do to take away some of the stench is to take the skin of the egg yolk out, and put a couple of drops of lemon, but it’s still going to stink. Coconut oil! That smells good and is really good for your hair, but of course it depends on how dry your hair is. If you want shine you can rinse with apple vinegar. Apple vinegar is good for you in many different ways."
Thanks, Salma! And thanks for this delightful gif, Buzzfeed.
You know who's not gonna do anything to your hair, stinky or otherwise? The barbers at this Pennsylvania barbershop.
Barbiere barbershop's sign says "Gentlemen's Fine Haircuts," but that doesn't seem like a hard and fast rule, does it? Well, it didn't to a woman named Diamond Pecjak, who, back in March, made appointments online for her boyfriend and herself. When she dared to show up at the barbershop as a not-man, however, the barbers refused to cut her hair.
Pecjak, who wanted a fade, was pissed about being refused service based on her gender, so she filed a complaint with the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs, who, this week, fined Barbiere $750 for discrimination.
"It's infringing on our environment," owner John Interval whined about the idea of letting an icky girl into his treehouse... er... barbershop. "Guys come here as a kind of a little getaway, to be around other guys."
"I'm a barber. That is what I specialize in," Kerri Wonsettler told the Observer-Reporter. "That's why I work here. I don't cut women's hair." Kerri is a woman, but she has a special invisible non-infringement forcefield around her so that she can cut dude-hair without giving the male clientele cooties.
This bitch has the best hair on Instagram
I've often compared my hairstyling skills to that of a creature without opposable thumbs, but I guess I'm out of excuses because LOOK AT THIS PEKINGESE/SHIH TZU MIX!
Kuma's style and adorableness has garnered her more than 8,000 Instagram followers, the next of which should probably be you even if you don't speak Japanese, which is the language all the captions are in.
- Do you use any of the same products as Kylie Jenner? Gonna start?
- Do you think barbershops should be cool with the occasional female client?
- What's the stinkiest thing you've ever put in your hair in an effort to make it prettier?
