4 Haircut Trends You're Going to Fall Head Over Heels For This Season

Think of this year's shift in haircut trends the same way you would a rom-com: you cheer when the protagonist cuts it off or gets blunt, but eventually, you're rooting for them to make room for romance. That's exactly what you can expect in the hair department this Fall. "There's definitely a romantic inspiration," said Mark Townsend, hairstylist to the stars and Dove brand ambassador. "Trends aren't seasonal anymore - they transition from season to season but get updated slightly. So last Fall...

Sephora Has All the Skin Care We're Searching For This Season

Self-care, for us, means paying attention to our skin. It may not be the most convenient thing to do, especially after a night out, but we've only got one face, and we want it to look as radiant as possible. Plus, shopping for skin care is a blast! We love trying new products, and switching it up is important so your skin doesn't get too used to certain formulas. If you're a beauty-lover, you know the selection at Sephora is just too good to pass up, and the "What's New" section is our absolute ...

5 Huge Nail Color Trends That'll Rule Your Mood Board This Fall

If Summer is the Elle Woods of nail polish colors - bright, fun, the perfect accoutrement to holding fuzzy pink pens - then Fall is the Wednesday Addams. It's darker, moodier, and bold as hell . . . and definitely not traveling to Harvard Law School for a man. Like both characters, though, the upcoming season's coolest nail trends are full of surprises. Where you might expect to see your traditional burnt orange shades or forest greens, NYC-based manicurist and founder of her eponymous brand Jin...

This Month's New Skincare Products Beat Out Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Every Time

Flannel, apple orchards, pumpkin-spiced-pretty-much-everything - if you're not careful, October can start to feel more monotonous than Nadia's drug-fueled night in Netflix's Russian Doll. (Although, hey, that's a pretty good costume idea.) The one area that never fails to surprise, however, is the skincare department. In fact, there are enough product launches this month to keep even the most insatiable entertained. From a foamy new face wash tailor-made for people with sensitive skin to a super...

Fall's coolest nail art trends may look like a lot of work, but they're actually super easy to do.

The Surprising LGBTQ+ History Behind Some of Your Favorite Beauty Brands

Pride is more than rainbow flags and Ben & Jerry's Hubby Hubby ice cream (although, these are indeed welcome, especially when enjoyed while humming Lady Gaga's "Born This Way") - it's also a time to reflect on the progress, and room for growth, needed to support the LGBTQ+ community. A good place to start: the workplace. After all, under federal and most states' laws, LGBTQ+ people aren't explicitly protected from discrimination. That's why entrepreneurship in the community matters and, in an in...

The 1 Nail Art Trend You Have to Try This Summer Is SO Easy to Do

Not all nail art can evoke that warm, breezy feeling you'd get from sailing along the Amalfi Coast, Aperol Spritz in hand - otherwise, employers would probably throw salon appointments into its benefits packages instead of PTO. Then again, you've yet to meet the easiest nail art trend of the Summer: the geometric sun design.

4 Piercing Trends That Will Be Heating Up This Summer, According to a Pro

Some people sprint like Usain Bolt to the nearest European Wax Center or bathe in self-tanner to get ready for Summer. Others - especially the ones who happen to also own a leather jacket or live by the conviction that jodhpurs are underrated - take an edgier approach to the start of a new season: they get a cool piercing. "We've definitely noticed an uptick of certain piercings in the studio in anticipation of Summer," said Ben Tauber, a piercer at Maria Tash in NYC. "Ear work is still the reig...

15 Aluminum-Free Deodorants That Will Actually Keep You Stink-Free in 2019

You can't talk about natural deodorants without a quick lesson in B.O. 101. First you need to know the difference between a deodorant and an antiperspirant. An antiperspirant has chemicals like aluminum to stop sweating altogether. The aluminum salts plug the sweat glands, preventing perspiration. On the other hand, a deodorant masks and neutralizes odor. But where does the stink come from in the first place? When the glands in your armpits emit sweat, the liquid interacts with the bacteria in t...

You Need to Try These New Drugstore Products, All Under $15

As a beauty editor, I have some expert advice for you: don't sleep on drugstore beauty products.

In 2019, drugstore beauty products are more impressive than ever before.
