Taylor Thinks Pink; Dyeing For Gold; And More…

-------

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.

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]

A Red-Carpet Red Lip-Off

-------

New York was definitely not feeling the lipstick love at the Spring shows last month. But once the fashion circuit moved to Europe, painted pouts ruled the runways once more—and continue to dominate the red carpet. A host of big-billing events last night saw a gaggle of A-listers pull out their best bullets for a few seconds in front of the flashbulbs, and with a number of nods to classic Hollywood glamour, scarlet and crimson colors ruled, yielding three stellar mouth moments: In New York, Solange Knowles opted for a bright, matte cerise at the Angel Ball, while Taylor Swift chose a glossy cherry to release her new CD, which is, uncoincidentally, called Red. But Amanda Seyfried’s makeup at the 16th Annual Hollywood Film Awards gala in L.A. just might be our favorite, as she worked the soft-focus, blurred-around-the-edges, rose petal red that Lucia Pieroni made famous backstage at Rochas. But maybe that’s just us. Which do you prefer?

A Lancôme Star Is Born; MAC’s Comic Relief; And More…

Lancôme’s latest must-have mascara launches in September but starting today, Sephora is offering a 72-hour preview of its Hypnôse Star, inspired by brand face Daria Werbowy…and Betty Boop. [Sephora]

MAC has become synonymous with behemoth collaborations. From Hello, Kitty and Wonder Woman to partnerships with Beth Ditto, Daphne Guinnes, and Ruffian, there’s nothing the makeup brand can’t turn into covetable, limited-edition cosmetics. Its latest trick? Archie. The comic strip’s Betty and Veronica characters will get their own color ranges early next year. [WWD]

Never mind that successful Olympics bid. Americans have a whole new reason to be envious of London: At the end of this month, its Covent Garden neighborhood will be home to a two-floor Chanel makeup and fragrance pop-up shop. Jeal-lous. [Evening Standard]

When Taylor Swift first blew out her signature ringlets, the blogosphere was all a-gasp. But seeing the country phenom with straight hair is now something of a regular occurrence. “I decide based on what I’m doing on any given day,” Swift says of whether or not to go curly. “Lately, I’ve been doing my hair in a way that’s sort of a combination of the two, smooth on top with a loose curl at the bottom,” she explains, pointing out that her go-to hairstyle at the moment is “a ponytail with some kind of headband or scarf.” [Refinery 29]

Spotted: Natalie Portman at the Jardins du Palais Royal in Paris, where the Oscar-winning actress was reportedly shooting a new ad campaign for Miss Dior Cherie, which included a gigantic headdress made from real roses. Color us excited to see that one. [Catwalk Queen]

A Hollywood Coiffing Coup; More News On Balenciaga’s New Fragrance; And More…

-------

Today, hairstylists the world over had a major win as far as gaining recognition for their craft on the big screen. After celebrity stylist Ted Gibson started a Facebook campaign last year to try to get the Academy of Motion Pictures to recognize hairstyling, not just makeup artistry, at the Oscars, the Academy has obliged him, changing the Best Makeup category to the Makeup and Hairstyling Award. [Hollywood Reporter]

More news on Kristen Stewart’s forthcoming Balenciaga fragrance. It will be called Florabotanica and it’s meant to be “a game-changer,” according to Coty Prestige, in that it will draw a younger customer to the house that Nicolas Ghesquière is rebuilding. [WWD]

First came Wonderstruck, now comes word that Taylor Swift will be releasing her second fragrance, Enchanted Wonderstruck, in September. The passionfruit, pink poppy, sugar-glazed champaca petals, and vanilla eau will launch this fall as “the next chapter” of Swift’s Wonderstruck story. [WWD]

In case you weren’t aware, MAC Cosmetics is a trendsetter. The mega brand not only creates a wealth of the fashion-forward makeup looks backstage during fashion week, but some of its more clever branding ideas continue to get repeat play. After its own Hello, Kitty line spawned another Hello, Kitty collection at Sephora, Disney is reprising MAC’s Venomous Villains collection with its own Villains beauty line set to hit stores in September. Apparently, Cruella de Vil eyeliner, Maleficent lipstick, and Ursula blush doesn’t get old. [Bella Sugar]

Bangs: They’re Back?

-------

The celebrity fringe movement that hit its peak about three years ago seems to be having a resurgence. First, Taylor Swift hit the cover of this month’s Vogue with long, face-framing layers, and now both Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Biel have made the cut. Witherspoon, who was spotted at the This Means War premiere last night in London, is revisiting the choppy “breakup bangs” that she debuted at the 2007 Golden Globes following her split from Ryan Phillippe (that was the yellow Nina Ricci dress year, for the red-carpet watchers among you), while the future Mrs. Timberlake has resurrected her side-swept fringe circa 2009 with a much heavier, darker iteration. Thoughts on the style’s second coming?
