The cast of summer rom-com What If gathered in London this week for the U.K. premiere. Leading man Daniel Radcliffe sported his signature messy strands and strong brow on the red carpet—but to our delight, he wasn’t the only one. Singer-songwriter Chlöe Howl was a vision of gamine glamour—letting her tousled auburn pixie cut and defined arches take center stage. A swipe of black liner and a natural smattering of freckles gave the look some feminine flair. While this could easily turn into a “Who Wore It Best?” situation, we would like to think this dapper duo’s appearance makes yet another strong case for “borrowed from the boys” beauty.
Days after she walked the Moschino catwalk sporting sultry Hollywood waves, Rita Ora revealed an edgy new bob on Instagram, joining the likes of Hilary Rhoda and Taylor Swift. “He is a genius @Chrisappleton for my fresh cut!” she captioned. The British singer’s choppy new ‘do proves that 2014 is, in fact, the Year of the Bob, and the crop is obviously so 2013.
Watch out, Rita. Daniel Radcliffe also debuted a new bob this week. Sadly, his wasn’t by choice. Radcliffe’s locks are actually extensions put in place for his new role in the upcoming Frankenstein film. Said the actor of his longer-length strands: “The amount of work it takes, having to dry it—do anything to it is a f*cking nightmare. I do have a whole new sympathy for women.” May we suggest a Jared Leto-esque man bun. [Elle]
In other hair news, eating more meat can be good for your bones—and your locks. A diet lacking in protein, hairstylist Garren told Allure, can lead to “starving” hair that spindles out and sheds more easily, as protein is an “essential nutrient for healthy hair,” noted dermatologist Francesca Fusco. For vegetarians, Fusco recommends foods like quinoa, spinach, and tofu.
Nonie Creme, the former founding creative director of Butter London, announced that she’s launching a new mass-market beauty line in January of next year dubbed Nonie Creme-Colour Prevails. It will include beauty products across all categories, such as hair (“semi-perm hair dye” she noted on Twitter), nails, and cosmetics. “It’s not a big secret that I cut my teeth backstage, grew up as a fashion kid in London on shoots and shows, and I was fortunate to be adopted early when nails weren’t even a thing,” she told WWD. “I was able to zero in on the fact that someone needed to be there [to give models a manicure]. You can’t have [Mario] Testino shooting a model with dirty, skanky nails.” No, you most certainly cannot.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince finally opens next Friday after an eight-month delay, and its London premiere earlier this week provided a red-carpet opportunity for the film’s fearsome threesome, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson. For her part, Watson, who was rumored to be in the running for a coveted Chanel contract at one time, chose an age-appropriate Ossie Clark look equipped with a headband, some shimmer shadow, and a touch of pink blush. Her cover shoot for the August issue of Elle U.K. was another story, however, as the 19-year-old went punk rock, working some serious black eyeliner and moussed-up hair—more PG-13 than PG, if you ask us. Which look do you prefer?
