Miley Cyrus debuted a wig with bangs over the weekend that called to mind Marc Jacobs Spring 2014 bowl cut meets Anna Wintour.

Israeli artist Tal Peleg is taking face painting to new levels with her lid-topping creations. A lifelike rendering of sushi along the lash line, or a vignette of baby ducks, beats a smoky eye any day. [The Cut]

Cara Delevingne may have caused tweezer sales to plummet, but Marchesa’s new lattice-patterned version might help the tool get off the endangered-beauty-species list. Along with a corresponding compact mirror, matchstick-like emery boards, and mini makeup brushes, this scaled-down collection arrives just in time for the clutch-carrying holiday season. [Glamour]

WestHouse New York, a town-house-style boutique hotel, is set to open on December 23. In addition to a butler (available on request), amenities include a GHD professional performance hair drier and a 1-inch flatiron in each of the 173 rooms.

How The U.S. Beach Volleyball Team Gets Bikini-Ready; A Blow To The Movement Against Animal Testing; And More…


Olympic beach-volleyball star Kerri Walsh Jennings is aware that wearing those skimpy bikinis, er, uniforms on international television requires a little pre-match maintenance—which is why she’s big into laser hair removal. “I hate getting waxed,” she admits. “Waxing makes me want to punch someone in the face.” [Daily Mail]
