Bangs Regret? 14 Styles to Get Fringe Off Your Face

I blame Zooey Deschanel for the moment I walked into the hair salon and proclaimed I wanted blunt cut bangs just like the actress. Sure they were cute and trendy for all of 20 minutes, but then came about three years of growing out those bangs and zero knowledge of how I could style them during that awkward growing-out phase (This was pre-Pinterest mind you). Thus, I'm not going to let any of our readers suffer through growing out bangs like I did. These quick and easy hairstyles get those bangs out of your face and out of your eyes. Whether you're looking for an updo, down 'do, casual style or hairdo for an evening out, there's an easy hairstyle for anyone growing out her bangs. Remember, this too shall pass.   read more

9 Sneaky Places Skin Cancer Hides

I should have known my trip to the dermatologist wasn't going to end well when I walked in and saw the derm's diploma was hanging lopsided on the wall.

After a handful of malignant moles and one basal cell carcinoma later, I am vigilant about coming in for bi-annual skin cancer checks. So when I found an unusual mole on my derriere (self checks are important too!), I knew I had to skip the embarrassment and get it checked out.   read more

Kelly Osbourne and M.A.C. Make All Our Dreams Come True

Okay, I'll admit it -- I have a major girl crush on Kelly Osbourne. Anyone who can dye their hair purple, shave half their head and do it all without the look-at-me fanfare of other celebrities is pretty badass in my book. So when I heard she was coming out with a limited edition makeup collection for M.A.C., I instantly set out snooping for pre-released images and info. Oh, and did I mention her equally sassy counterpart, mother Sharon Osbourne, has also come out with a summer makeup collection for M.A.C.? The two collections, which feature reinvented pastel shades and glammed up classic colors respectively, are available online June 2 and in stores June 12.   read more

10 Best Self-Tanners for a Goof-Proof Glow

Summertime means shorts, and shorts mean baring those ghostly pale winter legs you've been hiding beneath jeans all season. Rather than turning to a tanning bed this season, give your skin a boost of color the healthy way with one of these new self-tanners.

These new instant self-tanners and gradual self-tanners are nothing like the old products you've tried and thrown out in the past. Some of the best self-tanners for face and body in years have hit the market recently -- products that work overnight, last for weeks and even (if you can believe it) smell as good as regular lotions.   read more
