Since adopting a thick, tawny fringe for her February Vogue cover, Taylor Swift has been much more experimental with her hair, which has been readily layered, swept up, and blown-out since. Her latest move? A choppy, dip-dyed shag, which was spotted on set of the video for her new hit “I knew You Were Trouble.” [Just Jared]
All that glitters is gold, as they say—including your hair, if a new dying technique is to be believed. Researchers at Paris’ University of Pierre and Marie Curie are reporting the discovery of a new chemical process that will give hair the hue of gilded precious metal, which will appear a glimmering shade of red beneath UV lights.

Drew Barrymore, Fergie, and People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive, Channing Tatum, all swear by nutritionist Kimberly Snyder when it comes to staying in peak physical condition, and now Snyder has opened her very own juice bar in L.A. to help the rest of the West Coast keep their calorie intake in check. [E!]
Speaking of L.A. beauty and health hot spots, West Hollywood’s makeup salon Blushington is expanding its smoky-eye-on-the-spot services to Dallas. Next stop, New York? [D Magazine]
After pioneering last summer’s ombré hair movement, Drew Barrymore has ditched her brunette roots and graduated blond highlights altogether. Instead, she showed up to last night’s launch party for nutritionist Kimberly Snyder’s new book sporting—get this—shimmering copper strands. It appears as though Barrymore went the extra mile and tinted her brows to match, which we appreciate. What do you think: red hot or better off blonde?
The phrase “You are what you eat” may be a bit overused in these days of organic living. But as a trio of new books is out to prove, it’s probably a smart beauty mantra nonetheless. Aesthetician Scott-Vincent Borba, dermatologist and Style.com contributor Dr. Jessica Wu, and nutritionist Kimberly Snyder have just released tomes dedicated to explaining how proper nutrition can positively impact your skin, hair, and overall appearance. Here, a synopsis of each to help do your face and body good.
Skintervention, by Scott-Vincent Borba
Like the title suggests, this book is about rethinking your routine. As a celebrity facialist (Mila Kunis and Twilight‘s Ashley Greene are both fans) and founder of an eponymous skincare and neutraceutical brand, Borba is a firm believer that the most effective way to treat various skin conditions is through eating right. “Ninety percent of all skin issues start from within,” he says at the beginning of chapter four, which is titled “Eating Your Way to Gorgeous.” After spending about 50 pages helping readers identify their skin type and individual skin issues, Borba delves into the topic of “padding your pantry” with healthy oils, keeping lots of acne-reducing red berries on hand, and the power of juicing your meals for a quick shot of essential vitamins and minerals. DIY at-home skincare solutions and healthy recipes and quick fixes for common problem areas also abound, including this little gem: If you hold an ice cube on the roof of your mouth with your tongue, it will reduce under-eye puffiness. That may seem a little suspect, but since we’re talking about the man who minted a whole range of delicious and nutritious skin-enhancing gummy bears (yes, gummy bears), we’re inclined to believe him.
