The Easiest Way to Go Platinum—Without Damaging Your Hair



Shearling and rave prints are high on our list for Fall, but we might just be adding a platinum wig to the mix of must-try trends. Daria Werbowy wore one (along with a black bowl cut and Joan Jett-like shag) in the series of selfies she snapped for Equipment’s newest campaign; Rita Ora donned a Marilyn Monroe-esque iteration for Roberto Cavalli; and Candice Swanepoel tried on faux strands for size in Hype Energy’s latest ad. While bleach can certainly take a toll on the health of your hair, wigging out in the white-hot hue is a low-risk option worth taking.

If you’re brave enough to make the look permanent, try our beauty prescription for platinum blonds.

Are Rainbow Bright Hair Colors Taking a Backseat to Hybrid Hues?


olaThe second Marc Jacobs sent washed-out dye jobs down his Fall 2014 runway, we at knew these “pulled-back” and “off” shades, as Guido Palau described them, were going to be the next big thing in hair color. On Saturday, model Ola Rudnicka walked in Nicolas Ghesquière’s Louis Vuitton Cruise collection sporting toned-down lilac strands in lieu of her signature white-blond. Similar to Charlotte Free’s unconventional porange (pronounced in a French accent as “poh-ranje”) seen at Chanel Resort, Rudnicka’s pale purple tresses appear to be a hybrid—one I affectionately dubbed plavender (a blend of grayed-out platinum and lavender). The distinguishing factor between these watercolor-like tints and the saturated, hi-def tones we’ve come to covet is that they appear more experimental than intentional. Talk about a happy accident.

Emma Stone Is Seeing Red



More celebrities are embracing the tone-on-tone concept, with Emma Stone being the latest addition to the hair-to-hem crew. At a press conference in Beijing yesterday for The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise of Electro, she coordinated her fiery strands to the rest of her ensemble—similar to how Prabal Gurung styled model Natalie Westling for his Fall 2014 show. We always enjoy a celeb who gives a runway trend the red-carpet treatment.

Flashback Friday: Fading Back Into the Beauty Sphere


Michaela Bercu-cropFlashback Friday is a feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.

The Model: Michaela Bercu

The Moment: Ombré Hair Color

The Motivation: Let’s admit the obvious: We all want Jared Leto’s hair. Now that we’ve established this understanding, let’s talk about ombré—the reason we’re all head-over-heels for his perfectly tousled, shoulder-grazing locks. The look was growing in popularity for years (with Gisele Bündchen at the helm of that sun-kissed color ship), but the trend seemed to wane on the runway in favor of solid hues (like the muted tones seen at Prada for Spring 2014). But with Leto leading the charge, we’re ready to return to strands that transition from dark to light—as seen in this image of Michaela Bercu from the nineties. The best part: We won’t have to worry about spending time in the salon getting our roots touched up once the warm weather finally hits.

More and More Blonds Are Having Fun; Adam Levine Waxes Poetic on His Beauty Rituals; and More


ashleigh-goodIt was confirmed this morning that Langley Fox Hemingway‘s recent shade change was a wig (landing her in the league of faux blonds, alongside Ruby Jean Wilson), but now we’re wondering if Ashleigh Good has really gone platinum? If so, the former brunette can join the ranks of Julia Nobis and Saskia de Brauw, as well as Miley Cyrus’ eyebrows. [Instagram]

“Someone recommended I wax. I do that. I shave as little as possible. I hate shaving. It’s so unnatural, your skin is yelling at you,” People‘s Sexiest Man Alive, Adam Levine, told the glossy. It appears he’s got the same grooming ritual as Jared Leto.

For guys who prefer to man-scape more like, well, a man, Philips Norelco launched a beard trimmer that projects a red laser onto the skin for precise shaving. [Wired]

Yves Saint Laurent has lent a Midas touch to the brand’s classic Opium fragrance. Fifty bottles burnished with gold leaf are available for 2,000 euros each. In order to snag this spritz, you’ll need a king’s ransom. [Paris Vogue]

You don’t have to be a tiger to earn their stripes. Colorist Aura Friedman recently painted black bands on a blond client—which is right on trend if you consider the zebra pattern stamped on strands at Rodarte. [Allure]
