Just when we finally got over the shock of Anne Hathaway's super-short Les Mis haircut, the Academy Award-winning actress blew us all away again at last night's Met Ball with a platinum blonde 'do. The bold color choice combined with killer styling not only complemented the actress's vintage Valentino gown, but also fit perfectly with the gala's punk theme.
To get the glam meets edgy look, celeb stylist Sascha Breuer applied Wella Professionals Extra Volume Mousse to damp hair for hold and volume. Then, Wella Professionals Bold Move Styling Paste was worked through the mid length and ends to create a slightly messy texture. To finish the look, Breuer misted Hathaway's hair with Wella Professionals Stay Firm Finishing Spray to make the rock'n'roll style last all night.

Speaking of red lipstick...Turkish Airlines has banned female flight attendants from wearing red lipstick and nail polish. The airline holds that a more "natural look" improves communication with passengers, and that the use of red lipstick "impairs visual integrity." Some secular Turks are concerned that the new guideline is a reflection of Turkey's increasingly conservative government -- others say it's just another bizarre flight attendant dress code.

With names like "tiny lizard Tuesday" and "whipped cream Wednesday," it's hard to take dedicated days seriously. (Ok, I made those up, but some of the actual ones are even crazier.) However, there are some days worth recognizing, and Melanoma Monday (today) is definitely one of them.
If you're still wondering why you should care, you're probably not alone -- studies show that Americans don't know much about Melanoma. But Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, and over 76,000 Americans are diagnosed each year. The good news is that it can be prevented -- wear sunscreen! -- and when it's detected early, the survival rate is high.

If you ask me to name my top three favorite hair and makeup looks, I'd probably say Old Hollywood waves, a great cat eye, and bright lipstick -- in no particular order. So it's pretty obvious why every element of Isla Fisher's look at The Great Gatsby premiere spoke to me.
"I love when Isla looks like an old time, glamorous Hollywood movie star," said makeup artist Katey Denno. On the eyes, Denno used Tarte Aqualillies Black Clay Liner to create an inky, winged effect. Of course the pretty, multidimensional lip color was achieved using multiple products. “Lips were first lined with Mac Lip Liner in Beet for a precise edge," said Denno. "I then colored them using a blend of BITE Beauty Luminous Cream Lipstick in Pomegranate and Quince. Finally on top, to set the lips, I blended…

Ahh, Topanga Lawrence-Matthews: The petite, green-eyed, intelligent-beyond-her-years, flower child with big hair and an even bigger personality. The role, played by Danielle Fishel, was iconic. And Boy Meets World is definitely worthy of the upcoming reunion Girl Meets World, filming now.
Today, the child star is all grown up, posing forMaxim and celebrating her 32nd birthday this Sunday. Still, she hasn't changed much since the day she met Cory Matthews. From the enviable hourglass figure to the still voluminous hair, we can't help but love everything about her.
