After being markedly absent from her husband Prince William's side at this week's Winter Whites Gala, Kate Middleton's royal mane made its reappearance. The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out on Friday for the annual SportsAid gala today, looking every bit the glamorous royal. Her hair was styled in her signature, glossy blowout, which sported just a hint of wave at the ends and around her face. Kate reportedly fired her hairdresser earlier this month, which would send most women into a hair tailspin. But it looks like Kate hasn't missed a beat. If only we all were so lucky.
While the rest of us were chowing down on some turkey on Thanksgiving Day, Selena Gomez was sizzling on the football field. She styled her chestnut hair in a curled half-updo during her halftime performance, while the Oakland Raiders played the Dallas Cowboys in the annual Thanksgiving Day matchup. Her makeup kept with the day's theme, as she opted for a cranberry cat eye. Black nail polish finished the look. Are you a fan of Selena's Thanksgiving Day style?

It seems Demi Lovato is still in her blue period. The X Factor judge stepped out for the premiere of Disney's Frozen last night with her freshly colored hair pulled back into a tousled updo. Perhaps it was in spirit on the film, but Demi's hair was a rich, radiant shade of blue, darker and richer than the colors she's tried before. She complemented her azure mane with a neutral makeup palette that featured a shimmering bronze shadow dusted all over her lids. What do you think of Demi's jewel-toned hair?
How many ways can Estelle tie a scarf? Too many to count! The British singer is stepping into something new with her collection of scarves. The luxury brand Scarves by Swaray (which is Estelle’s last name) launches later this month with five prints inspired by her travels. Estelle picked up a few paisley patterns in Malaysia and also sourced fabrics gifted from her African grandmother. "I like to rip up fabrics and make something new. That’s my thing," she said.
Each standard square scarf is black silk with a strip of color in the center and will retail for around $200. The brand will release even more patterns this Spring and possibly a few coordinating nail wraps. While these scarves can be worn around your neck and on your bag, Estelle's favorite tie is a head wrap. Throughout her tour, the singer would throw on a scarf while she was performing, which sparked the inspiration for Scarves by Swaray. If you're not as savvy at tying, each scarf comes with instructions. Your bad hair days just got a lot more stylish.
Oh, Jay Z (no hyphen). Musical domination wasn't enough, but now you have to go and take over the men's fragrance market, too? Gold Jay Z, the first scent from everyone's favorite rapper/designer/business mogul, is now available at Barneys just in time for the holiday season.
The fragrance debuted today as part of his charitable collaboration with Barneys New York. Already, the project has gotten a lot of press with the department store's racial profiling scandal looming. However, Jay Z isn't phased. On his blog, Life + Times, he ensured followers that 10 percent of sales on Nov. 20 will go to the Shawn Carter Foundation, which provides scholarships to those with financial need. Gold Jay Z will be available nationwide at other retailers on Nov. 29 (Black Friday).
At first glance, the bottle seems to be a simple white bottle with gold accents. But the cap is actually engraved with Jay Z's words of encouragement: power, pride, confidence, strength, success, courage. Within, you'll find a masculine juice with a mix of bergamot and cardamom at the start, which bleed into vetiver and teak wood. Finally, the scent finishes with amber, myrrh, and bourbon vanilla. The prices range from $39-$150.
And knowing the level of innovation that Jay Z demands on a regular basis with his music, including launching his guaranteed-platinum album on mobile and his video on Facebook and taking over one of the world's most prestigious art galleries to rap for six hours straight, he's not playing it safe with his fragrance launch. For example, the window displays in Macy's will convert your reflection into a gold avatar, and that is only the beginning. Needless to say, we think Jay Z has the Midas touch.
What's the next logical step when you have a pixie cut as famous as Coco Rocha's? Go shorter! At least that's what was on Coco's mind, and that of her stylist Anh Co Tran, when she took a spin in the stylist chair yesterday . . . and shared the process on her Instagram account (she's not the only one doing it, too!). "She just wanted a change, so I suggested we go shorter," Tran, who cut Coco's hair during her first Instagram debut, said. Coco brought in references, which included Twiggy but not Justin Beiber, who she references in the video below. Tran cut one side a bit longer than the other for versatility and to give the illusion of bangs.
And the versatility came in handy last night, as Coco styled her own hair for an event celebrating L'Wren Scott's collection for Banana Republic. "She plays with her hair all the time," Tran said yesterday. "I'm excited to see how she styles it tonight! Most of the time she does it herself." And can we just say, Coco did a pretty good job. She styled her hair with tons of texture, with her piecey faux-bangs swept across her forehead. "When you put in a really good haircut, it can't go wrong," Tran said.
