10 Shampoos Celebrity Colorists Actually Use On Their Clients

These days, dyeing your hair is as common as putting on lip balm or washing your face. In the last month, you've probably texted your colorist (yep, you have a colorist now) about going blonde like Priyanka Chopra, a copper-red like Katherine Langford, or even a chocolate-brunette like Emma Stone more than once. But changing up your color is a short-term goal with long-term effects. Not only does it change your mood, how you wear your makeup, and how you dress, but it also affects the kind of p...

The Best Valentine's Day Beauty Gifts Are Way Sexier Than Chocolate & Flowers

As you probably already know if you exist in this world, Valentine's Day isn't all love and heart-shaped candy. It can serve as a reminder of your perpetual singledom as you prepare to guzzle all the wine à la Galentine's Day, or a rude awakening as to how many weeks ahead you actually need to make reservations to ensure you and your new squeeze have dinner booked for the night of. The day produces a lot of feelings — in a lot of different ways.But no matter where you stand on the subject, Vale...

You Heard It Here First — Dark Wash Jeans Are Officially Back

If we had to pick just one trend to place our bets on this season, it'd have to be western. Between fringe details, cowboy boots, leather pants and big belts, the fashion world seems to be taking cues from every outfit ever worn in a John Wayne movie. But if there's one cowboy-inspired trend we're most excited to try out, it's dark wash denim. Spotted in equal measure on the catwalk and the streets, from brands like Lorod to Calvin Klein, this Americana denim style is making quite the impressio...

Do These CBD Beauty Products Actually Work?

It's 2019, and weed is buzzier now than it's been since 1968 — just not for the reason you'd think. The psychoactive plant technically known as cannabis has found itself in an unlikely position as the trendiest skin-care ingredient you don't need a state-mandated medical-marijuana card to buy. But should you really incorporate it into your routine?First things first: When people talk about weed beauty, we're talking about cannabidoil, or CBD for short, the non-psychoactive component of the cann...

The Academy Just Righted A 30-Year-Old Wrong & This Clip Proves It

Since his directorial debut She's Gotta Have It in 1986, Spike Lee has gone on to become a household name, and one of the most celebrated auteurs in modern cinema. (So celebrated, in fact, that She's Gotta Have It recently hit Netflix as an original series.) So it may surprise you to learn that Lee's work was given little recognition at the Oscars... until now.Prior to the release of BlackKklansman, Lee was only previously nominated for two Academy Awards: One in 1990, for the Best Original Scr...

Marie Kondo's KonMari Method is sweeping (pun intended) the nation, thanks to the home-organization guru's new Netflix series, Tidying Up.

Should Your Skin-Care Routine Change With Your Period?

We don't always need a period-tracking app to remind us when ours is on the horizon — sometimes, all it takes is one or two zits popping up on the jawline to tell us everything we need to know.But it's not just right around your period that the skin shows hormonal changes; you're likely to spot a number of differences throughout the month. A few days before your period begins, you might find that your skin is oilier and more congested overall thanks to excess sebum production, while skin sensit...

Cardigans Are The Sleeper Of Sweaters But There's Nothing Snoozy About These

Cardigans have always been one of those winter items that are just kind of there. Sure, they’ve crept around for years — spotted on bundled-up grannies or slung on a colleague’s chair as a last-ditch effort to combat the frigid AC — but they’ve never held their own as a forward staple compared to modern turtlenecks and chunky knits. But hey, perhaps grandma has always known something that we didn’t because the once-passé piece is shaping up to be the sweater du jour amongst the fashion crew.And...

Bebe Rexha: Designers Won’t Dress Me Because I’m A Size 8

For pop star Bebe Rexha, the Grammys should be one one of the most exciting nights of her life. Except, the "I'm A Mess" singer is having a hard time finding a dress to wear, thanks to the fashion industry's well-documented issue with sizeism (despite 67% of women being a size 12 or larger). On Sunday, she took to Twitter to express her frustrations.Im sorry, I had to get this off my chest. If you don’t like my fashion style or my music that’s one thing.

How To Prepare For (And Ace!) A Phone Interview

Maybe you've been there before: You're sitting somewhere, nervous, phone in hand, waiting for it to ring. Maybe you just spent what felt like forever finding a quiet place with good service, or triple checking that your phone wasn't accidentally on silent. Then, finally, it rings.Let's face it: Phone interviews can be very awkward. Whereas in-person interviews afford you the opportunity to connect (you know, as a real human being) with the person you're meeting, phone interviews often lack nuan...

This year, 347 films were eligible to take home a coveted Oscar during the 91 Academy Awards. This morning, the lucky few dozens chosen ones are finally revealed.

The Most Painful Snubs From The 2019 Oscar Nominations

It's here. It's real. It's happening. The Oscar nominations are practically Christmas morning for all the movies released in the past year — aside from the actual Oscars themselves. The 91st Academy Awards take place on February 24, but today is the day a lucky handful of films learn they're up for the industry's ultimate honor. However, that also means there's going to be an equal number of movies, actors, and actresses who didn't make the cut. Sometimes, the Academy doesn't agree with the re...
