Since 1989, artist and hairstylist Nelson Loskamp has been shaking things up with his Electric Chaircut performances. With an amplifier attached to his back, Loskamp's shears or clippers then produce beats based on his cutting motions.
But that's not all. Not only does he tape his haircut volunteers to his chair, but he also tapes their mouths and eyes closed. Why? "To symbolize our fetishism of appearance," according to his website.
"I whack at the hair in a seemingly random pattern and a cacophony of trance like sounds play to the audience. When I am finished I peel away the tape and show them the new look I have created," he said. Want to try it? Loskamp performs every Sunday in August from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at 175 7th Ave. in New York City. Not feeling as daring, or simply just want to check it out? Watch him in action here.
Just as blue mascara makes the whites of your eyes look brighter, blue lip gloss can make teeth look whiter. Since it's sheer, it can be layered over any other color for a subtle effect. It will also tame down unwanted warmth from your liner or lipstick. And if you get a glittery version, it can help to make your lips look fuller. To see some of the best blue glosses, check out the widget below.
Finally, a members-only shopping site that doesn't sell last season's leftovers! MOXSIE FIRST sees Fall as an opportunity to layer and accessorize. With MOXSIE FIRST's preview sales, you call dibs on the most important statement pieces before the leaves start changing.
Here's to staying warm during brisk Autumns without sacrificing style, from head to toe:
Super sunnies are good enough for Sienna Miller, so why shouldn't they be good enough for you? Super's spruced up its classic retro designs with new neutral colors and a little bling.
The knitwear revolution will not be televised. De*Nada Designs presents geometric graphics, woven ropes, drapey cowls, and noncorny circle scarves. Not like Grandma used to make.
Matiko Footwear has all the Fall shoe trends on lock: laces, studs, boots. Get your grunge on for day and in the evening rock comfortable knee-high boots that were truly made for walking.

It most definitely does make your nails hard. I also like the texture, which looks almost jelly-like coming out of the bottle, but still has good opacity and pigment payoff. My only concern with the paint is that it takes forever to dry. Granted, I didn't apply topcoat, but I was still smudging it on stuff half an hour later, which is a painfully long time for just two coats. So if you have weak nails, I'd say give it a try — as long as you have patience and plenty of fast-dry topcoat on hand.
Included are works of art from the last two hundred years showing how skin has been celebrated and pathologized—everything from the skin jewelry at right to old sun cream ads and actual pieces of human skin with tattoos on them. It's a disquieting but ultimately compelling gathering of images and objects, and definitely a unique experience.
