As Gwyneth Paltrow’s whirlwind book tour continues, the health and wellness fiend is dishing out beauty tips, too. “I’ve probably tried everything,” she says of beauty procedures, although she won’t be getting Botox again anytime soon. “I looked like Joan Rivers!” she recalls of a negative experience with the popular injections. Paltrow is more likely to book Thermage laser treatments. “It’s quite painful…but I would do it again, because I feel like it took five years off my face.” [Glamour]

“Everything here is GOOP and Gwyneth [Paltrow]-approved,” celebrity hairstylist David Babaii pointed out last night as he sat in one of four salon chairs at the opening party for his eponymous blow-dry bar located inside Tracy Anderson’s new 8,500-square-foot Brentwood, California flagship studio. For the hair guru, who has worked his magic on Kate Hudson, Ryan Reynolds, and Angelina Jolie, in addition to Paltrow, the decision to open a blow-dry bar with his muse, and now business partner, was a no-brainer. “Gwyneth said, ‘Do you want to do a blow-dry bar?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah.’ She’s always been an amazing muse. And I’ve lost over 100 pounds in five months because of Tracy, so it was an easy decision,” he joked. “It’s just good business to provide that added service,” a Victoria Beckham-clad Paltrow said when she stepped onto the black carpet as guests and Anderson enthusiasts like Molly Sims, Kim Kardashian, and Stacy Keibler arrived. “We just wanted to create an experience for women that was top to tail, so they could go from the studio to work.” And the location can’t be beat, Anderson added. “It’s west of the 405, which I just really wanted to stay away from,” she explained of the wellness destination that now joins her Studio City space. “Gwyneth grew up in LA., I’ve lived on and off in L.A. for many, many years, and we wanted to bring something to this side of town. We wouldn’t do something this big without debuting a lot of my new research and development on how to get people healthier, more well, more connected, faster, smarter, and better than ever.”
At 700 square feet, the blow-dry bar is decidedly smaller than its gym counterpart. But what the Windsor Smith-designed space lacks in size, it more than makes up for in quality products, which have been created by Babaii and will launch at the salon next week (and on his Web site next month). A fervent supporter of animal welfare, Babaii’s 19-25 dollar range, which includes hydration and ultimate volume shampoos, a polished creme serum, the boho beach spray, and an instant straight smoothing balm, is cruelty free, and is also devoid of sulphates, parabens, and petrochemicals—which makes an increasingly green Paltrow plenty happy. So how much time does it take to get the blonde starlet camera-ready? “Twenty minutes,” according to Babaii. “She doesn’t give me more than that! But I’m fast. My team and I have learned to get you in and out quickly.” This speed, and what he calls the bar’s “feel good, no judgment” vibe is what Babaii says will keep the Brentwood studio members happy.

We had a long chat with newly named SK-II face Kate Bosworth about her skincare-and-makeup regimen earlier this year, but here’s something we didn’t know about the Big Sur star: Bosworth apparently treats her hands to the same routine as her face. “I use the SK-II Essence on my hands. My mother always told me you can tell a woman’s true age by the back of her hands,” she says. [Allure]
What would you do if you were an Oscar-nominated actress and you saw a huge billboard of yourself in an ad for the fragrance you promote? If the answer is take an Instagram of yourself in front of it, then you and Jessica Chastain are not all that dissimilar. Stars: They’re just like us! [HuffPo Canada]
Turns out, Gwyneth Paltrow wasn’t always on the sugar-, gluten-, carb-free plan that currently stars in her new cookbook, It’s All Good. While promoting Country Strong a few years ago, she was on a steady diet of Guinness, beta-blockers, sleeping pills, and wine, which is what ultimately compelled her to make some changes. [Us]
Gwyneth Paltrow may be the face of Hugo Boss Nuit Pour Femme, but she’s not a one flacon kind of gal when it comes to fragrance. “I believe in a wardrobe of perfumes,” explains Paltrow. “I probably have around 50 at home, some I just like for the bottle, some I wear all the time; but whatever I choose, it has to make me feel feminine.” [Telegraph]
Revealed: Helen Mirren’s much-discussed BAFTA pink hair was inspired by reality TV! “I’d been watching America’s Top Model, which I’m obsessed by, and this girl had her pink hair and I noticed because it came out really quickly. So there she is with really pink hair, and then five days later it’s all gone. So I thought that would be cool, I might have a go at that.” [VF]
Ms. Mirren isn’t the only one experimenting with hair color these days. A frequently flaxen Beyoncé has gone platinum in a new string of promos for her upcoming Mrs. Carter tour. Like most things involving the international pop superstar, it suits her. [Daily Mail]
