Today, hairstylists the world over had a major win as far as gaining recognition for their craft on the big screen. After celebrity stylist Ted Gibson started a Facebook campaign last year to try to get the Academy of Motion Pictures to recognize hairstyling, not just makeup artistry, at the Oscars, the Academy has obliged him, changing the Best Makeup category to the Makeup and Hairstyling Award.

More news on Kristen Stewart’s forthcoming Balenciaga fragrance. It will be called Florabotanica and it’s meant to be “a game-changer,” according to Coty Prestige, in that it will draw a younger customer to the house that Nicolas Ghesquière is rebuilding. [WWD]

First came Wonderstruck, now comes word that Taylor Swift will be releasing her second fragrance, Enchanted Wonderstruck, in September. The passionfruit, pink poppy, sugar-glazed champaca petals, and vanilla eau will launch this fall as “the next chapter” of Swift’s Wonderstruck story. [WWD]

In case you weren’t aware, MAC Cosmetics is a trendsetter. The mega brand not only creates a wealth of the fashion-forward makeup looks backstage during fashion week, but some of its more clever branding ideas continue to get repeat play. After its own Hello, Kitty line spawned another Hello, Kitty collection at Sephora, Disney is reprising MAC’s Venomous Villains collection with its own Villains beauty line set to hit stores in September. Apparently, Cruella de Vil eyeliner, Maleficent lipstick, and Ursula blush doesn’t get old. [Bella Sugar]
