Last week, Julianne Hough stepped out with a new head of extensions, giving her a whole new look. While most of you like her best with a long bob, Julianne was spotted again this weekend with freshly trimmed extensions. The look is still longer than her above-the-shoulder cut, but definitely a few inches shorter than the original extensions. Is this new length the winning look? Let us know what you think!

Miley Cyrus is mixing up her look once again! The singer covered up her edgy pixie cut with a wig at the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas event in LA on Saturday. The short blond bob features midlength bangs and stops short of her jawline, making it look like she grew her hair out overnight. Miley shared her fresh look on Twitter, saying she was "bored" and playing with wigs, and she also shared a snap on Instagram, posing with a friend.
Miley's signature pixie was on display on Friday when she got up close and personal with Santa Claus on stage at KIIS FM's Jingle Ball in LA. Her wig change-up isn't too surprising, though, as unexpected makeovers have become the norm with Miley. Just last month, she bleached her eyebrows to match her platinum blond 'do, only to debut thick, drawn brown eyebrows days later.
Frizz seems to be the one hair woe that affects all women regardless of hair type, mainly because it sprouts up for a number of different reasons. While some women have figured out ways of keeping their fuzz down day to day, there are times when those pesky hairs pop up regardless of what you do to avoid them. When you're stuck in a hairy situation like this, there are easy ways to disguise the pouf that seems to be taking over your head:
- Try some hair oil: Hair oils are a more natural serum when it comes to zapping frizz. Work something like Kiehl's Smoothing Hair Oil Concentrate ($25) into your hair to depuff instantly.
- Slick on some moisture: Start by sweeping some lotion onto your arms and legs. When you're done, run your fingers through your hair, avoiding the roots. The thin layer of moisturizer will smooth down your frizz. Just make sure to use a light touch or you could find yourself with a greasy situation.
- Spritz some hair spray: Spraying some directly onto your hair won't do much, so try this handy trick — mist a lightweight hair spray, like Oribe Superfine Hairspray ($19) onto the palms of both of your hands. Before it has time to dry, swipe your hands over your hair, focusing on the frizziest spots. The spray will keep the fuzz at bay without weighing it down.
- Snag a dryer sheet: If you're running out the door and don't have any product on hand, reach for a dryer sheet. Smooth it over your hair for a quick way to remove your frizz. Bonus: this technique also works if you're hair is full of static, another major hair woe in the Winter.
Leave it to Nicole Richie to give us a new spin on the boho chic crown braid trend. The style star hosted an event over the weekend, wearing her hair pulled back in a sleek chignon with a deep side part. But it was her hair accessory that caught our eye. She topped off her polished look with a twisted headband, proving that hair pieces can actually look chic. The closest replica we found is the Amika Le Twist headband ($14, originally $20), which comes in five shades to better match your hair color. For more hair-topping inspiration, shop our picks below!
With a surprising amount of new launches every year and veteran scent stars like Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez, celebrity fragrances are in a category of their own. This year, we've seen One Direction expand its stardom with Our Moment, which made for a hilarious ad, and Justin Bieber released a new scent, The Key, with an equally interesting short film. This year marks Britney Spears's 10-year milestone in the fragrance industry, and she didn't miss out on the opportunity to launch Island Fantasy and her song "Perfume." But that's just the tip of the iceberg in all the celebrity fragrance launches this year. We're narrowing it down to the top 10, but who gets your vote for the best perfume launch of the year?
You've probably seen Deborah Lippmann's handiwork in the likes of Vogue or on the runways at New York Fashion Week, but she's most well-known for her line of polishes that you can find at many department stores and Sephora. We tapped the celebrity manicurist for her holiday shopping list, and just like her polishes — you'll find nothing but luxury here. From cozy cashmere blankets to a special spa treatment, see what Deborah is gifting this season.

Celebrities were out this week to remind us that this is the season for red lipstick. Demi Lovato paired her crimson shade with her jewel-toned hair, while Emmy Rossum went glamorous with red lips and a high bun. We couldn't stop staring at Rita Ora's headpiece-and-red-lipstick combination . . . or Leona Lewis's curly mane with her scarlet hue. All four of these ladies were getting us in the holiday spirit with their lipstick colors, but whose look did you like best?
Cheek stains are great any time of the year but especially in the Winter, when your skin tends to be drier. Benefit's Benetint is a cult classic for a reason, and we found a way to make our own version at home with a little coconut oil and an old lipstick.
