Elizabeth Banks pulled a perfect 10 at the premiere for Pitch Perfect last night. Sporting a perfectly tousled faux bob, Elizabeth proved that playing around with your hair length is a fun and stylish way to experiment with your look. Pair this coquettish style with a smoldering smoky eye for a bit of sweet-meets-sexy, and get the complete hair how-to when you read more.
Back in high school I used so much Rave and Salon Selectives hair spray, I am still rather concerned about my lungs — and the ozone, for that matter. I have to admit, although the packaging and formulation are different now, my thanks go out to Barbiesugar for taking me on a drip down memory lane with her review of Suave 4x Mega Rave Hairspray, Scented ($2.89). Although it wasn't a "rave review," here's what she thought:
"I bought this product right before a wedding in Chicago. I was getting my hair done because I was a bridesmaid, but my grandma and my mother were not, so they were relying on me to do their hair. I picked this mostly for its low cost. I'm used to using 'big hair' and 'super-sticky' hair spray, but this took it to a whole new level. I really think NASA should find out what is in this product because there is some gravity-defying action in here. Needless to say, this was not the product I bargained for. Cons: tacky, no pun intended. Pros: it smelled nice."

Click as fast as your index finger will allow, and get over to Suavenomics. For today only, Suave is giving away coupons for a free product (choose from shampoo, conditioner, hair spray, styling aid, body wash or body lotion). You'll have to wait for the coupon to arrive in your physical mailbox (so last-century, I know) but once it's there, you can have your pick! I know some of you might scoff at a low-priced line — but remember, when I was in Belize, I thought I was using "fancy spa shampoo," only to find out that it was Suave. So go on and get your freebie already!
My trip to Belize was amazing on so many levels, especially because I got to hang out with adorable animals like this Aztec parakeet. Since it was the low season, I managed to score a good price at a swanky hotel in San Ignacio. When I checked in, I was offered a glass of rum punch. (Yes, please.) And my room was gorgeous — huge, pristine, luxe. Right away, I hopped in the shower, where I smiled at the sweetly coconut-scented shampoo in the wall dispenser. It left my hair clean and smelling fresh, so I figured it was some sort of spendy spa formula.
And then, a snag. Turns out I'd been given one of the more expensive rooms by accident, so to get the lower rate, I had to move to a smaller, simpler room overlooking a parking lot instead of the jungle. No big deal. But instead of a posh wall dispenser for shampoo, the bathroom simply had a bottle out for guests' use. Lo and behold, the "spa formula" I'd imagined was none other than Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut shampoo ($2.49). It isn't moisturizing enough to use every day without conditioner, but the scent and cleaning power are great — and with all the money I'll save using a drugstore standby, saving up for another trip to Central America won't take long at all.
