Need another reason to try bangs? We've got three, actually — and they prove that fringe definitely has its benefits. Here, celebrity stylist Tippi Shorter demonstrates how easy it is to transform your hair by changing the way you style your bangs. Watch now to see how to create three distinctly different looks!
Textured, mussed-up ponytails have taken a back seat to slicker styles recently, but that doesn't mean your updo has to be boring. As Bella Heathcote, Kate Bosworth, and Whitney Port have proudly displayed, there are a handful of gorgeous ways to style your ponytail while keeping it off your face:
- Bella went for a liquid-slicked version, pulling her hair back completely without a part. Her low-volume style allowed her flirty winged liner ample room to shine.
- Kate Bosworth added some oomph to her updo by brushing the sides back but teasing her crown. A bright pink lipstick color gave some balance — and a serious pop of color — to her amplified ponytail.
- Whitney opted for a low ponytail with a center-split part that drew attention to her subtle smoky eye and dewy complexion.
However you decided to style your tightly pulled-back hairstyle, you'll need some hair spray to keep it put; reach for something lightweight, like Frederic Fekkai Advanced Sheer Hold Hairspray ($25).
To get just the right shade of crimson, celebrity makeup artist Amy Nadine layered Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge in Iconic ($24), a bright red, over the brand's Aqua Rouge in Burgundy ($24). While glossy, the highly pigmented colors combine to make a full-of-depth hue that lasts and lasts. Added Nadine, "No need to reapply throughout the night — not even once."

The long-awaited Chanel No. 5 campaign featuring Brad Pitt has finally been released, marking the first time the brand has ever used a man to promote the iconic fragrance. "There You Are" features Pitt delivering a monologue while staring directly out at viewers. There is no soundtrack, and the only mention of the fragrance comes at the tail end of the commercial, making it feel more art house than fragrance counter. Brad Pitt represents a different direction for Chanel No. 5, so what do you think of "There You Are"?
If you don't have the hair you crave, there could be things you're doing in between salon visits to make your hair less than wondrous. With a few slight routine changes, however, you'll be well on your way to stronger, shinier, all-around-better hair. Find the remedy to common styling missteps when you keep reading.
Enter Method's dish and hand soap ($5, Whole Foods), which is packaged in a blend of recovered ocean plastic and postconsumer recycled plastic. Over the past year and a half, Method employees joined cleanup groups to hand-collect plastic from beaches in Hawaii — more than a ton in total. From there, the recovered plastic was recycled into the bottles that hold the soap. (It smells fresh, by the way.) Will soap bottles alone save the planet? No, but they can move people to reuse and recycle. And since the first step toward a cleaner ocean is keeping plastic out of it, that seems like a good place to start.
