Charlize Theron may play the evil queen rather than the fair princess in the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman, but the 36-year-old isn’t worked up about it. “I see my face and my body changing, and they’re all changes I’m OK with,” she says of the realities of getting older in Hollywood. “Part of me understands I may not be in front of the camera forever, and maybe not just because of age, but because of me. I wouldn’t have started my own production company if I didn’t feel that way.” [NYP]
Let it be known: Having side bangs cannot give you a lazy eye, despite reports that littered the Internet yesterday to the contrary. [Daily Mail]
At least four unexpected parcels were delivered to homes on the South Island of New Zealand this month containing cash, special hair-themed gifts (in three cases, a brand-new hair dryer, in the other a set of hair clippers), as well as handwritten notes that read, “thank you for being a true friend.” Sounds like the work of the hair fairy to us.

…Or drug smugglers. In an unrelated incident, a New Zealand resident was arrested at JFK airport for trying to smuggle illegal substances in bottles of nail polish and deodorant. Using beauty for evil? For shame! [NYDN]
Headbands were the big story of last month’s Golden Globe awards as both Charlize Theron and Michelle Williams sported bedazzled hairpieces to the event. But the accessories were met with mixed reviews, as Theron’s crystal-encrusted band and Williams’ black satin strap seemed to detract from the otherwise elegant quality of their Dior couture and Jason Wu gowns, respectively. But leave it to Julia Restoin-Roitfeld to give the hair band its just deserts. At last night’s amfAR New York gala to kick off Fall fashion week, the expectant mother sported a gilded, knotted coronet, which sat toward the back of her head rather than the front. The romantic style managed to spruce up her head-to-toe black look, without any of the kitsch a more forward-leaning band might have elicited. Don’t you agree?
Seeing as how it’s rare that Rihanna keeps one hairstyle for longer than a few months, we knew that her long, highlighted curls would one day come to an end. And it looks like that day is today, as Ri-Ri debuts a new, blond shag with bangs. [Us]
In somewhat of a coup, Shiseido has signed Jennifer Connelly to be the face of its Future Solution LX premium skincare line. How the raven-haired, green-eyed Connelly has gone without a beauty contract all these years is completely mind-boggling to us. [WWD]
Equally shocking is this next piece of spokesperson news: L’Oréal Paris has signed a model—not an actress—to front its forthcoming Rouge Caress lipstick line. That model is none other than Hungarian beauty Barbara Palvin. [WWD]
Willow Smith has whipped her last hair. The teen singing sensation posted pictures online last night of her newly shaved head. [EW]
In case you were wondering how Charlize Theron is dealing with aging in Hollywood, the Young Adult star is “36 and loving it. I wouldn’t want to go back to my twenties. Some people have Botox and that’s great. But hopefully I’ll be OK without it.” [Mirror]
EXCLUSIVE: You Can Take It With You: Clutch-Sized Beauty Essentials For The Golden Globes And Beyond
At last year’s Golden Globes, something unusual happened that completely usurped the show’s typical beauty highlights. After the ceremony began and the gaggle of gowns, chignons, and painted pouts were seated, the camera panned to Angelina Jolie, who, at that very moment, rifled through her bag, produced a crystalline pink lip gloss, and proceeded to apply it at will. The Twitterverse erupted, and within a matter of hours, it was revealed that Angie was a fan of Chantecaille’s Brilliant Gloss in Love—so much so that she brought it in her clutch for periodic touch-ups throughout the evening. At the 69th annual Golden Globes last night, there were no such live, on-screen beauty moments to speak of, although we couldn’t quell the burning desire to know just what the nominees had packed in their purses. So, we did what any good reporter would do: We asked their makeup artists. Here, in a Style.com exclusive, face-painting stars like Clarins celebrity beauty artist Pati Dubroff and global artistry director and brand ambassador for Laura Mercier Matin Maulawizada tell us the single item they sent A-listers like Julianne Moore and Claire Danes down the red carpet with. Because you never know when unnecessary shine or a faded statement lip could ruin your moment in the spotlight.
Charlize Theron is racking up the award nominations for her role in Young Adult this season, and even though she lost the statuette to The Help‘s Viola Davis last night at the Critics’ Choice Awards, she was one of the night’s big winners on the red carpet. And that has a lot to do with her braided updo. Theron and her long-time hair stylist, Enzo Angileri, devised a small and tight side plait that wound around her head, ultimately joining a coiled chignon pinned above the nape of her neck. A light mist of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray highlighted the shape of the low-slung bun. If these are the kinds of bells and whistles she pulls out for the Critics’ Choice Awards, we can only imagine what she’s got up her sleeve for the Golden Globes on Sunday. Thoughts on the style?
