And the bride wore bangs. OK, so we haven’t exactly confirmed that fact, as it’s hard to tell from the aerial shots of Behati Prinsloo’s recent nuptials to Adam Levine in Los Cabos, Mexico, but judging by these images from Net-a-Porter’s The Edit, going for a pre-wedding chop might not have been a bad idea. Her covetable set of long (and likely faux) bangs channeled the style of both the Pre-Fall pieces in the story and a seventies Stevie Nicks (who is rumored to have performed at the reception, along with Prinsloo, who took to the mic to serenade her new husband). If the recent wave of models and celebs with bangs (Joan Smalls, Karen Elson, Jessica Chastain, and Emma Stone) foretell anything about the next big beauty trend, freshening up for fall is as easy as snipping a sophisticated set of eyebrow-grazing fringe.
“The cobbler’s children always go barefoot,” was the expression Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz (the founders of namesake skincare line and apothecary Malin + Goetz) used to describe the previous gap in their line and the product they designed to fill it: dog shampoo. Inspired by their rescued pug, Mr. Greenberg (shown here), as well as their other beloved canine children, Junior and Bob (all of which have their silhouettes featured on the bottle), the pair developed a sulfate-free, neroli-scented wash devoid of synthetic fragrances and artificial dyes. And similar to the brand’s products for pet owners, this particular soap laced with hydrating amino acids is unisex and perfect for pampered pooches with sensitive skin. It appears that dirty dogs everywhere are having their day, but what about cats and rabbits? We can only hope the duo expands their offerings to cover all of our fashionable four-legged friends.
To see Mr. Greenberg get his first bath in two (yes, two!) years and witness the euphoric results, watch the video, below.
Zoe Saldana understands the power of transformation—she underwent a five-hour paint job on a daily basis for her latest role as the electric-green Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy. “What your eye can see, yourself becomes,” the starlet noted in an earlier interview with Style.com. Yesterday in Los Angeles, Saldana skipped the full-body metamorphosis and switched up her look with a simple, quick change. She started out with her signature medium-length waves for an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and a few hours later sported a cropped cut for a red-carpet premiere. The trick to going from long to short sans scissors? The faux bob. With the help of a few strategically placed hairpins, pulling off this special effect is simple and perfect for commitment-phobes who want to test-drive losing their length or just keep cool when the heat is on. Even better, it doesn’t require frequent trips to the salon for trims—a fact that has deterred the low-maintenance Saldana from a permanent chop in the past. They say that blonds have more fun, but we think a summer without sweaty strands on your neck sounds pretty damn good, too.
If the Spring 2015 swim week collections in Miami this past weekend were any indication, it’s time to seriously step up our poolside beauty game. Our three favorite looks—seen at Clover Canyon, RVCA, and Mara Hoffman—put our lazy topknots and ponytails to shame. At RVCA (center), models teamed their barely-there bikinis and high-tops with inverted, braided pigtails (a look that we’ve seen on the red carpet as well).
Mara Hoffman’s girls (right) sported plaits, too—but their look was all about “epic,” undone volume inspired by Guatemalan jungle warriors. Catwalk by TIGI global creative director Nick Irwin began by gluing double wefts of extensions from ear to ear for added fullness (although anyone with long, thick hair can re-create the look sans faux strands). After parting hair down the middle, he added soft waves with a large curling iron and brushed them out for a “candy-flossy” texture. Next, he gathered hair at the nape of the neck and braided only the bottom 3 inches—either in one single plait or two mini pigtails—and wrapped single palm fronds around the ends. The final touch was a thick swipe of emerald eyeliner on lower lash lines, which picked up on the electric hues in Hoffman’s designs.
Color was the main focus at Clover Canyon (left), where makeup pro Sarah Lucero channeled a “sun-kissed siren.” The simple look included loose waves, clean skin, and nearly neon tangerine lips. To achieve the stained-but-slightly-glossy effect, Lucero used a blend of Stila Color Balm Lipsticks in Avery and Valentina, pressing them into models’ pouts for a softer look. Orange lips are an easy, fuss-free way to make a statement on the sand—or anywhere, really. Streamline your morning routine for the rest of the summer with a swipe of intense, melt-proof pigment.
If you thought bangs already had their moment, you may want to reconsider. Not only have cool girls like Joan Smalls and Karen Elson recently sported fresh sets of fringe, but Emma Stone’s long, eye-grazing bangs spotted at last night’s New York premiere of Magic in the Moonlight have us tempted to break out the scissors—stat. In a floral Dolce & Gabbana gown, she epitomized seventies bohemian glamour. But even if you’re not ready to opt for a chop, you can re-create Stone’s polished, bouncy waves at home. Hair pro Mara Roszak began by applying L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It High Lift Creation Spray to the roots for volume, then blow-dried strands with a round brush. While Stone’s hair was still hot, Roszak wrapped sections in velcro rollers for ten minutes to set the curl. Then she sprayed a veil of L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold before removing the rollers and touching up the ends with a 1 1/2″ curling iron. Finally, a spritz of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and a good scrunch gave Stone’s look an effortless finish.
