Spray-Tan Danger: What You Need To Know; Lauren Hutton, Scissor Sister; And More…


In what can only be described as a power move to end all power moves, Elizabeth Arden has purchased the fragrance licenses of Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj from Give Back Brands LLC. Coty Inc., which holds licenses for Beyoncé’s scent empire, not to mention the as-yet-unreleased Lady Gaga perfume, has no doubt taken note. [WWD]

Bad news for the sunless tanning industry—and lovers of glowing skin the world over: A panel of medical experts has revealed that the active chemical used in spray tans—dihydroxyacetone (DHA)—can potentially damage DNA and cause genetic alterations if inhaled. Perhaps it’s finally time to embrace the pale. [IBT]

Lauren Hutton revealed a short crop at Stella McCartney’s Resort presentation on Monday, and apparently, the American Gigolo star cut it herself! “I was closing up a house, and it felt like I needed more closure. I guess I was depressed. I’d been doing that thing where I read The Economist too much. You know, reading it front to back for weeks on end isn’t always good for you. Instead of suicide, I ran into the kitchen and grabbed a pair of poultry shears. I grabbed one half [of my hair] and went whack, and then I grabbed the other side and went whack again!” [The Cut]

Also in the crowd at McCartney’s show was a newly shorn Anne Hathaway, who, as it is widely known known, cut her hair to play Fantine in Les Misérables. But even though she snipped her long strands for a role, Hathaway is considering keeping them cropped. “I’m just so pleased with how I look, so I now quite like having short hair.” [NY Mag]

Eau De Nicki Minaj Is Coming; Ah, That New IPhone Smell; And More…


Nicki Minaj has partnered with Give Back Brands, the same people behind Justin Bieber’s best-selling fragrance empire, to create her own scent that will hit shelves in the fall. The rap superstar plans to be very “involved” in the actual fragrance notes and will design the bottle with “[her] Barbz in mind.” [WWD]

Earlier this month, we reported on Chloë Sevigny’s new, blond-again shag, which, according to the actress, is worn best sans shampoo. “With this cut, the dirtier the better,” she says of her latest trim job, which came courtesy of hairstylist Ashley Javier. Going for that “just-rolled-out-of-bed look,” Sevigny relies on Kiehl’s Formula 133 and Kérastase Mousse Volumactive as styling aids. [T]

If you are still on board the dip-dyeing trend (still?), there’s a quick and easy, noncommittal way to go pink or baby blue: chalk. The sidewalk drawing staple apparently works wonders on hair for a temporary dose of pastel color. [WP]

As part of a fragrance installation, an Australian-based art collective called Greatest Hits has sought to bottle the scent of Apple’s best-selling products. Essences of plastic wrap, printed ink on cardboard, glue, rubber, and aluminum are all included in the experimental eau. [Time]

Move over, boob jobs. Chin implants, or “chinplants,” as they’re referred to by those in the know, are the latest craze in plastic surgery. [American Society of Plastic Surgeons]

ADR Talks Beauty Essentials; Rihanna’s Latest Hair Statement; And More…


In a rare opportunity, The Coveteur picked though Anna Dello Russo’s fashion week suitcases and unearthed a bounty of fashion “excess” as well as what the style icon refers to her as her “beauty essentials,” which include MAC Satinsheen Leg Spray, YSL nail polish, Aesop face serum, and Burt’s Bees Body Lotion. [The Coveteur]

Jennifer Aniston has confessed to an “obsession” with laser peels and reportedly spends upward of $8,000 a month on creams and lotions. Whatever makes you happy, JA. [Grazia]

Rihanna, one of the pop music world’s biggest hair chameleons, is experimenting with a new ‘do this week: supremely dark roots. [Daily Mail]

Speaking of pop music hair chameleons, Nicki Minaj covers the April issue of Allure in yet another gravity-defying, cotton candy pink wig that allegedly took Terrence Davidson, Minaj’s go-to-guy for wigs and weaves, two full days to create. [Huff Po]

Super Bowl Super Strands: A Face-Off


By all accounts, last night’s Super Bowl halftime show was epic. Madonna? Check. Givenchy couture? Check. Cameos from Nicki Minaj and MIA? Check, check. Prince’s 2007 Super Bowl performance will forever rank as our favorite, but we can admit that Madonna legitimately killed it—with one hell of a beauty look to boot. Madge’s go-to glam squad of makeup artist Gina Brooke and hairstylist Andy LeCompte traveled to Indianapolis with the material girl to provide complexion perfection, glittering bronze lids, and a serious set of thick, honey gold ringlets that reminded us of a certain Italian Vogue editor. So, for a little compare-and-contrast fun, we give you Madonna in Givenchy and Franca Sozanni in Gucci. Who rocks long, middle-parted curls better?

Avril X Sally Hansen; Nicki Minaj Talks Eye Makeup Maintenance; And More…


First Tracy Reese and Prabal Gurung, and now Avril Lavigne. The pop star and fragrance mogul is getting her own nail polish collection with Sally Hansen. [WWD]

That closet of wigs aside, Nicki Minaj says the most high-maintenance part of her very elaborate beauty routine is her eyes. “They’re the one thing I need my makeup artist to do. I don’t have the patience, my hands shake, and I mess everything up. So my makeup artist has to do my brows and lids and lashes. Everyone knows I’m a lash girl by now. When I don’t have my lashes, I feel naked.” [Elle]

As anyone who has walked past a Hollister store is well aware, public displays of perfume can be unwelcomed—and if the New Hampshire legislature has anything to say about it, they’ll also be illegal in the state’s government buildings. [Time]

The beauty-in-the-classroom debate is on. A high school in Leeds is getting flack for giving its 14- and 15-year-old students makeup tutorials to “teach children how to make a good first impression and also boost their self-confidence.” [Jezebel]

Lord of the Rings-inspired nail art? What will they think of next. [FlavorWire]
