The call for a ban on the Brazilian Blowout was heard round the country last year when a group of congressmen took the matter to the FDA, demanding that it step in to make sure the brand’s formaldehyde-enriched formulas were regulated. A strongly worded letter and a lawsuit settlement that made warning labels a mandatory part of the company’s production process later, and the congressmen are back at it, fighting for further action. Who says big government is a bad thing? [Fox News]
Hillary Clinton will reportedly step down as Secretary of State next year to focus on academia and philanthropy, she told Barbara Walters in a recent interview. Also up for discussion, Mrs. Clinton’s oft-discussed hair following this year’s “Scrunchie-gate” controversy. “I do not travel with any hairdresser, or anybody, to help me and I’m not very competent myself. I’ve been admitting that for years, which should be obvious to everyone,” Clinton joked. “And so it became simpler to just grow it so that I can pull it back. It’s fascinating to me how people are so curious about it.” [ABC]
Makeup artist Wei Lang has been tending to all of Beyoncé’s red-carpet beauty needs of late—including introducing her to the wonderful world of mink lashes. “They look amazing,” says Lang. “I use strips by Velour called Are Those Real? and I got her really into it, so she buys them by the ton.” [The Cut]
Rihanna’s body looked crazy awesome in her crocodile Tom Ford gown last night at the Met. But the key to her svelte physique has less to do with militant, cardio-heavy workouts and more to do with her trainer’s secret weapon: a pedometer. “I tell [Rihanna] to make sure she takes 10,000 steps a day,” says personal trainer Harley Pasternak.

It was one of the first things we noticed on last night’s Met gala red carpet so it comes as no surprise that Tom Brady’s gelled back semi-faux hawk is getting a fair bit of attention on the blogosphere. Where were you on that one, Gisele? [Us]
Between Birchbox, Glossybox, Beautybar.com’s Sample Society and a barrage of other similar initiatives, there’s now a myriad way to sample the latest and greatest in product innovations on a monthly basis. That said, Total Beauty is getting in the game anyway. [WWD]
Hilary Clinton has been spotted sans makeup as she completes the final leg of her Southeast Asia tour—and she is getting a lot of flack for it. Which begs the question: foundation over function? (We’re going with function). [Fox News]
Johnny Depp sports serious talons—in addition to a face full of makeup—in Tim Burton’s new movie, Dark Shadows. How did he like the accessory? Not all that much. “In every film that I’ve been lucky enough to do with Tim, there’s always some form of torture, and the nails were Tim’s idea.” [Crave Online]
Birchbox, the beauty sampling initiative that has inspired an endless number of imitators, is trend setting yet again by expanding its monthly beauty boxes to include a curated selection of products for men. [Forbes]
First Botox and now eye lifts are being credited as a cure for chronic migraines. So, like, is that covered by our insurance ? [Daily Mail]
Jenna Talackova, the Canadian transgender Miss Universe hopeful who has battled the pageant’s Canadian ruling body and its owner, one Donald Trump, for the right to participate in the competition, took to the airwaves this weekend to help plead her case. “I feel like the universe, the creator just put me in this position as an advocate,” she told Barbara Walters in a recent 20/20 interview.

Hilary Clinton has been wearing her hair long of late because “it’s easier,” according to her staff. But the Secretary of State’s people admit that they’re not OK with her hair accessory of choice. “Some of us are looking to ban the scrunchies,” an aide was quoted as saying in the new issue of Elle. Fallout on the blogosphere promptly ensued. [Huff Po]
A very good-humored friend just passed this link our way, courtesy of The Onion, the satirical journal that we will admit to reading, often with more frequency than other publications that report actual news. What? The writing is excellent. Case in point: This particular piece, entitled “Hillary Clinton Launches Intimidating New Fragrance Line,” includes a description of “Authorité,” the Secretary of State’s fictional line of soaps, eaux de toilette, and body splashes, as being designed to “evoke the olfactory equivalent of sensible shoes clicking purposefully down a marble-tiled hallway.” Pretty genius.
