Emily Blunt's Hair For Mary Poppins Returns Was Created With This Terrifying Tool

It took two old-fashioned styling techniques and one scary-looking hot tool to transform Emily Blunt into Mary Poppins. To create Blunt's loose curls, Oscar-winning makeup and hair designer Peter Swords King said he did finger waves "like they did in the '30s."

Next, he employed his second technique: pin curling (wh...

16 Makeup Looks That Take All The Fuss Out Of Planning New Year's Eve

When the earliest-known New Year's Eve celebrations went down in 2000 B.C.E., the Mesopotamians probably weren't spending the days leading up to the party worried about the falsies that could last through sticky showers from popped Champagne bottles (which, frankly, no one likes, by the way) or exactly what kind of updo they'd spin into a fancy hair clip.
