Jared Leto has been named the new face of Hugo Just Different. The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman and former My So Called Life heartthrob will also take over as the face of Hugo Man, which was previously fronted by Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Unclear whether his penchant for color-changing mohawks will come through in the print ads. [WWD]
A baldness-battling robot? Believe it. Its name is Artas and it just got FDA approval. [Atlantic]
Kimberly Snyder, nutritionist to stars like Fergie, Drew Barrymore, and Scarlett Johansson has a new book out and a few things to say about beauty products, as well as diet and exercise. “American women are suffocating their skin,” she says of paraben-prone product ranges. Her alternative: raw shea butter, which makes a great moisturizer. [International Business Times]
Speaking of going au naturel, Miranda Kerr is planning to expand into haircare with her organic line, KORA. For now, the Victoria’s Secret model and new mom has been using standouts from her Aussie skincare brand on her new baby, Flynn. “I love using the KORA Organics Rosehip Oil on him and sometimes mix it with the body lotion and give him little massages.” Adorable.

With a client list that reads like a call sheet for a magazine shoot (Irina Shayk, Elettra Wiedemann, Miranda Kerr), Justin Gelband is the go-to trainer for models with enviably slim and strong frames. Since launching his private coaching services a few years back, he’s devised a sequential workout that builds strength, motion, flexibility, and balance through an incredibly varied routine that fuses movements from Capoeira, yoga, dance, and mixed martial arts. The goal? Nothing short of sculpting “the ultimate woman,” as Gelband puts it. And he’s not messing around. Clients leap up onto rotating balls, twist into impossible poses using resistance bands, throw rounds of punches, and yank on cords suspended from above to mold muscle and whittle fat. Of course, scoring an appointment with Gelband isn’t exactly easy or cheap, but beginning Monday, the body sculptor and his crew will start teaching Model FIT classes, based on the aforementioned techniques, at Mushin Mixed Martial Arts in Union Square. Each 50-minute class is limited to 20 and taught by at least two trainers, who break up the class into smaller, more personalized groups to work on core and balance skills so it’s almost like getting a private session. Eager devotees looking to get to work on their bikini bodies post haste can book in advance and purchase packages—$50 per class or $400 for 10—to stay in fighting shape.
Mushin Mixed Martial Arts, 78 Fifth Ave., 2nd floor, (212) 656-1464, www.mushinnyc.com; Model FIT classes offered six days a week, starting April 18. To book in advance, call (908) 217-5181 or e-mail email@example.com.
Aside from famously swearing by Tahitian noni juice, yoga, and her own Kora Organics skincare line, expectant mother Miranda Kerr’s other beauty indulgences include makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift’s RMS Beauty line and body brushing. “[It] stimulates blood flow and exfoliates the skin,” she says. It sure does, as anyone who saw Kerr’s exquisite nude portrait in the December issue of W is well aware. [Vogue Australia]
Pantene has a new celebrity spokesperson for its Nature Fusion line in the form of Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell. Please join us when we say, “Pretty Little what?” and “Shay who?” [Just Jared]
In something of an obvious move, Allergan, the makers of Botox and Latisse, is in the process of beginning clinical trials, for—you guessed it—a hair-growth treatment based on the active ingredient its life-changing eyelash serum. Bye-bye, baldness! [Modern Medicine]
A new study contends that indoor tanning abuse is more common among women whose first experiences with the Bed came at the suggestion and with the support of their mothers. We’re all for mother-daughter bonding, but… [MSNBC]
Those of you with plans to watch the People’s Choice Awards tonight, listen closely: The show’s host, Queen Latifah, will be announcing CVS’ Beauty Club—an opt-in extension to the drugstore chain’s existing ExtraCare loyalty program—live, on TV. Spoiler Alert: There’ll be an online sweepstakes, too. [WWD]
We’ve long been fans of RMS Beauty, the elegant line of organic skin balms, eye and cheek colors, and other face-perfecting essentials from model-favorite makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift. With just a handful of products in her best-selling range, Swift has a rep for creating standouts that do what others truly can’t. (Karolina Kurkova and Miranda Kerr are just two of the legions that swear by her Living Luminizer, a highlighter that draws light to the skin without any glitter or sparkles). So needless to say, we were a bit excited to hear about her latest launch, Lip Shines, antioxidant-rich lip moisturizers that deliver a hint of color. As with all RMS releases, the formula is made with unrefined ingredients—the hero in this pot is Moringa oil, derived from the leaves of the “miracle tree” and loaded with hydrating fatty acids and youth-enhancing vitamins A and C. There are two versatile tints to choose from, a deep brown-rose and sheer modern pink, both of which can be worn alone or layered with any number of lipstick shades. Clearly the pair are a proven hit already, as they sold out within three hours of their soft debut on Spirit Beauty Lounge last week. Recent tweets have informed us that they’re back in stock on Spirit as of today, and also officially online at RMS Beauty. Happy clicking.
First came the tan tax, and now New York could adopt a “Teen Tan Ban” if a new law passes the state legislature. It’s already illegal to fake bake if you’re under 14 in the Empire State, but if all goes according to plan, New York would have the only statewide under-18 tan ban in the nation—and just in time to put a damper on prom season, too.

Not getting enough sleep? A new study shows that dark circles and sallow skin may be the least of your problems. Lack of sufficient shut-eye has been shown to affect the body’s immune function, hormone secretion, and physical and mental stamina, which can directly affect your hair, leading to a dull appearance, stunted follicle growth, or (eek!) hair loss.

Hopefully, Robert Pattinson is getting his eight hours. The Twilight hunk recently admitted to Oprah that he’d rather be beautiful than influential—a tune we imagine he would quickly change if male pattern baldness ever entered the picture. [Monsters and Critics]
Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum, and Kate Moss, on the other hand, have proven that you can be both things, raking in an estimated $50 million collectively this year for ads seen around the world. [Forbes]
You can add Miranda Kerr to team beauty-plus-influence, as well. In addition to her Victoria’s Secret obligations and the launch of her new natural skincare line, the Aussie model has apparently penned a book about body image called Treasure Yourself. No word yet on whether writing prowess and admirable syntax also factor into the equation. [Huff Po]
