Hey, no one said we're low maintenance. All joking aside, though, we did want to compile a list of products we would need should we find ourselves: 1) in an unexpected, getting-ready-to-go-out disaster, or in a less dramatic, but panic-provoking nonetheless, issue of being late; and 2) having a long, late night. The list includes all of these saviors, and then some — and all are gloriously pink!
In terms of usage and function, some of these products are more unusual, others are something we are accustomed to, but what they all have in common is momentary fix of your current hair woe, as well as over time. That means you'll get to feel good about your hair right after using one of these lovelies — and as far as realistic hair revival expectations go, they really do deliver.
This year's 80th Annual Golden Globe Awards was mostly old-Hollywood glamour through and through. The ladies were overflowing in sophistication, natural beauty and elegance — the hair was either messy- or precision-styled, while the makeup trend happened to be more on the enhancement of natural features than on the artistically experimental side, keeping most of the focus on soft, but flawless complexion. Click through and enjoy the beauty looks of nominees, winners, announcers and guests alike!
"I wish everyone the Happiest New Year! I wanted to share some of my FAVORITE things I think every woman should have in 2023. Hope these goodies bring you as much joy as they've brought me...let's get into it!!" — Halle Berry.

Roses are always a good idea, especially in skincare, but do you know which part of rose is in a product you've got your eye on? Upon seeing "wild rose" in the name, it makes sense that our first thought would be about that recognizable rose scent. Beauty products with wild rose can contain scent-bearing rose petals (or their derivatives), but that's not what "wild rose" in beauty products actually means. You, dear reader, are buying something even more precious than petals — rosehip seed oil from specific rose varieties.
This gorgeous, limited-edition palette consisting of 18 matte, shimmer, and metallic shades is just what the doctor ordered for the holiday season. The shadows are rich and pigmented with true color payoff, and the mirror is removable!
With November 15th being National Recycling Day, we turned our focus more towards eco-friendly beauty brands, aka brands that are all about: sustainability, ethical sourcing, recycled materials, refillable product options, world water resources, fair trade, who are zero waste oriented and/or plastic-free and plastic-negative. This all means that they are also vegan and cruelty-free. The upside to these brands (other than the obvious)? A lot of them give back, and do it through, for instance, educational seminars or giving a part of their profits to be invested into the environment or communities, or using exclusively recycled or even plantable packaging. The new generation of environmentally conscious brands actually produces palpable results. And really good products.
Your hair feeling a bit blah lately? Is it just hanging there, all lifeless-like? Or is it that your scalp is acting up again? And just as you've had some peace and got to enjoy all the lovely hair products you've been dying to try? Has it punished you with itchiness and dryness in return? Might be just the right time to introduce a scalp serum! Let's get right to it: all scalp serums are scalp treatments, but not all scalp treatments are scalp serums. The difference? Well, what does a serum make? Just as in face and body care, where we have facial serums and body serums, the skin on our heads also requires skincare. And sometimes that skincare, scalpcare (sorry), means bringing out the big guns, each for a target of their own.
Variety is the spice of life, is it not? Well, the holiday season is here, and new holidays-themed value sets are going to be popping up more and more, making it SO hard to pick and choose, while being mindful of our spending at the same time.
Sure, you love your cold and hot matcha drinks, but did you know that you can reap its beauty benefits, too? Well, there are plenty of said benefits, and beauty companies are not walking away from this superfood ingredient any time soon. And good for them (and us, tbh)!
Shampoo provides a refreshing aroma in the shower. But even the most potent don't linger all day. Similarly, a liberal coating of a scented dry shampoo won't produce a long-lasting fragrance. It's tempting to add a squirt of perfume to hair, but the high concentration of alcohol in most formulas can really dry out tresses. And no one wants to sacrifice hydrated, healthy hair for scent, no matter how intoxicating. The solution? Why hair perfumes, of course.
With the fall well in the air, many of us feel like cozying up inside more. 'Tis the season of hugs, after all, and we kind of want our body lotions, serums and creams to feel like they've given us a hug. In other words, to have our beauty routine feel more like a spa ritual at home than a strict regimen, especially after careful summer skincare.
Ana de Armas - swoon, right? Aside from her incredible work and talent, there are so many things that stand out about her, like her chicness and beauty, to name just the two most obvious. Due to the movie "Blonde", where she gave an exceptional performance, her name has the internet buzzing (more than usual), revealing to us some interesting makeup trivia - for instance, that it used to take 2.5 hours to do her hair and makeup in order to transform her into Marilyn.
Making the decision to go short is a big deal. Not to mention a major commitment. (Just think of all the salon trips you'll have to make to keep your new style from growing out.) There's never been a better time to rock pixies, bowl cuts and the like, however. Why? Because there are lots of great short hair care products out there.
Bleach, dye, heat styling and the environment can all do a number on your strands. We're talking parched tresses, dullness, breakage and none of that healthy bounce you see in all those hair commercials. There's a little secret that'll help counteract all that damage. Bond-building hair care products.
Soaking up the sun is essential in summer. But days spent at the beach or the pool can really do a number on your hair. After taking a dip, chances are you'll be left with quite a few knots and maybe even some frizz and dryness to boot.
Tending to your hair is a year-round job, but things can start to get a little iffy come summer. Not only is your hair exposed to way more sunshine given the longer hours and more time spent enjoying good weather. There are also variables like chlorine and salt water to contend with.
Shampoo bars are having a major moment right now. For good reason. First and foremost, the bars are extremely eco-friendly. They eliminate the need for plastic packaging, take less water to produce and can last longer than a traditional bottle of shampoo. Another big benefit? Shampoo bars are travel-friendly. They easily fit into carry-ons and suitcases and you never have to worry about spills.
