Lea Michele’s shimmering blue eyeliner looks like something her glitter-loving Glee character Rachel Berry would experiment with at Regionals, but here she is pulling it off at last months’ Vanity Fair Oscar Party. So what made this look less high school and more high fashion?

Lea’s peachy/pink lip and simple ponytail keeps the look simple, but we’re not sure if it would have worked if she wasn’t wearing a dress made out of blue sequins. What do you think?

Model turned actress Brooklyn Decker has recently debuted a new much shorter ‘do, and we’re kind of in love with it. Sure, her long, wavy golden locks were probably a man’s dream, but her cropped, wispy haircut is so chic, fun and flirty. It reminds us of Meg Ryan’s haircut in You’ve Got Mail that everyone was flipping for (you know, before the terrible plastic surgery?) 

Celebrity hair stylist Ted Gibson reportedly cut off about 10 inches! We wanted to know if she donated any of it to Locks of Love, but because her hair is so dyed and processed, they wouldn’t accept it, though she says she would have love to give to the cause. 

Every time spring or summer rolls around, starlets of all ages chop it off, and we can’t wait to see who’s next…maybe it’s you!

Tell us, which look do you prefer on Brooklyn, and would you consider taking off so much length in the name of spring?


Since yesterday, the buzz on every news outlet wasn’t a riot in the middle east, or an earthquake in the Pacific - it was mostly about Jennifer Aniston’s new haircut. All day yesterday, we heard the snickers and the sneers of the nay sayers “Why is Jennifer Aniston’s haircut news?” they’d say. Well, because it just is, that’s why. 

We wanted to give our opinion, and hear what you had to say, as well as pit her old style against her new style. In our opinion, though the cut is chic, polished with a little bit of edge and easily wearable by everyday gals, something about it hardens Jen’s face, and almost ages her. We loved her longer locks (especially when wavy), and the more muted blonde with lowlights. Her bright, yellow-blonde hue is surely an attention grabber - heck, we can’t keep our eyes off of it - but it almost washes her out in our opinion. Maybe it’s the flash, maybe she was having a bad picture day, so we’re not going to bring down a big stamp of disapproval until we see the cut settle in. 

Now, don’t get us wrong, like we said, we don’t have anything against the actual cut. But for America’s sweetheart, a sweeter haircut just suits her better in our opinion. 

Now we want to know what you think. As we asked in a previous post, love it, leave it, or just stop talking about it?

Fashion week is all the buzz these past few weeks, and will continue to show up in blog and fashion sites all over the web for a while, we’re sure. We’ve gotten peaks into our share of shows, but were taken aback by the gorgeous, ultra-fem braided crowns shown at the Erin Fetherston show. Since the Heidi-inspired look makes us want to skip in a field of sunflowers in a gauzy gown, we knew it was one for our lookbooks! 

Soon after our initial Erin Fetherston inspiration and infatuation, we saw photos of Jessica Alba’s double braided headband from the 2011 Orange British Academy Film Awards that reminded us of a look Sienna Miller rocked a few years back. We’re totally loving the milkmaid updo, and think it would even be cute with your hair down. 

The look is simple to achieve, but is best accomplished with longer hair. You can either french braid the ‘do into your hair (a la Jessica Alba) or wrap a long braid, starting at your ear, around your head and pin it back. Either way, you really can’t go wrong. To finish off the look, and make it appear effortless, pull a few loose pieces of hair out around your ears, and the nape of your neck. Voila!


Lea Michele continues to impress us with her glossy loose waves on the red carpet. To get her look from Sunday’s SAG awards, we consulted Dove celebrity hairstylist Mark Townsend who gave Lea her modern waves for the big night. “I went to Lea’s dress fitting and immediately knew I had to complement it with a modern take on 70s chic glamour. I drew a lot of inspiration from photos of Bianca Jagger,” said Mark.

The best part about Lea’s hair? It’s an easy look to try at home using the same hair care products Mark used - all found at your local drugstore.

Here’s how to get Lea Michele’s look:

  • “I started with clean, just washed hair for this look. Then I added in a drop of Dove Nourishing Oil Care Serum. The oil blend in this line - with coconut and almond oils - absorbs into the hair instantly to nourish and smooth dry hair. As soon as I put in the serum I was immediately able to apply another styling product.”

  • “To add a bit of texture and volume, rake a pump of Dove Body & Lift Mousse throughout damp hair and blow dry five-inch sections quickly with a round brush.”

  • “Wrap two to three inch sections of hair around a one inch curling iron, away from the face to create big flowing waves as opposed to curls.”

  • “While curling, I made sure to alternate the time I held each curl in the iron. The longer you apply heat, the sharper the curl. I alternated the curl time between 2 and 10 seconds to create different shapes throughout the hair that wouldn’t fold together.”

  • “I wanted to purposely create the fluff at the top of her head, so I had Lea flip her hair upside down. I rubbed a pea-size amount of the new Dove Nourishing Oil Care Leave-In Smoothing Cream between my hands, and then I raked it through the hair from the bottom up to eliminate flyaways and create shine and texture without compromising the waves throughout the hair.”

  • “To finish Lea’s look I sprayed Dove Unscented Extra Hold Hairspray with Natural Movement (Aerosol) throughout the hair to make sure the style stays in place, but still has lots of movement. Lea jokes about how much of this I use!”
