Jonathan Van Ness Gave Jimmy Fallon Tips on Cutting Your Hair at Home

Last night, Jonathan Van Ness appeared on Jimmy Fallon's talk show The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Since self-isolating, Fallon has taken his late-night show online and video chats with guests in the new format.

5 Reasons You Have Split Ends, Plus Exactly How to Treat Them

Split ends are inevitable. Whether your hair is long or short, straight, wavy, or curly, they don't discriminate, and they're pretty much an issue that we all have to deal with. Because they often occur as a result of some sort of damage to your hair, the only way to realistically get rid of them is to get a trim, though making a trip to the salon isn't always an option. The best course of action is to stop and prevent split ends before they get a chance to begin wreaking havoc on your hair in...

Should I Be Concerned by How Much Hair Falls Out When I Do a Scalp Scrub?

A few years ago, scalp scrubs weren't really a thing. Sure, they existed, but most people didn't really do them, at least not at home - they were reserved for professional treatments at the salon and felt like such a luxury. Fast-forward to today and scalp scrubs are everywhere, with no shortage of products on the market. I, too, hopped on the scalp scrub trend with very little hesitation and own at least five different exfoliators in my collection of shower products. I don't use them as often ...

Can't Resist Coloring Your Hair at Home? At Least Consider These 6 Expert Tips First

"We're about three weeks away from seeing everyone's natural hair color," reads a new meme circulating on Instagram and Twitter. In the midst of quarantine and social distancing, this level of lighthearted #relatablecontent is equal parts true and hilarious. It might make you want to order a few box dyes and root touch-up creams ASAP - but not so fast. Although salons are temporarily closed, hairstylists are still urging you to proceed with caution. If you already have color-treated hair, their...

Everything (and We Mean Everything) You Need to Know About Getting A Modern Perm

The year is 1987. Bon Jovi is blasting on every radio station, Dirty Dancing is in theaters nationwide, and the only thing people want more than the numbers of Jon and Baby's personal choreographers is their curly perm hairstyles. Fast forward to today, and a lot has changed since then: the top 100 list, "cool" dance moves, and especially the state of the perm. In fact, the look today is a lot more modern.

Are You Overconditioning Your Hair? Turns Out, You Might Be

For as long as I can remember, I've been told that the key to maintaining healthy hair is moisture. Conditioning after washing has always been a must; I make sure to take time to regularly deep condition once a week and use protein treatments as well. But with all of these moisturizing tips in mind, I sometimes can't help but ask myself if it'd ever be possible for me to somehow overcondition my hair. Of course, I brought this question to a hair pro, who told me the answer to that is . . . kind...

I Finally Figured Out How to Use a Hair Wand Thanks to This Cordless Miracle Worker

I've always found the monotonous activity of curling my hair to be soothing, but when the beauty market became overrun by trendy hair wands, I was left scratching my head. I'm not particularly clumsy, but I couldn't figure out how I was supposed to wrap strands of my hair around a 360-degree cylinder that was rotated upside-down without burning the ever-loving sh*t out of my wrists and fingers. Was everyone around me born with the coordination needed for these clamp-less irons? Turns out, it's n...

Everything You Need to Know Before Getting Hair Extensions For the First Time

I spent most of my life thinking hair extensions were only used to add length. Though I'd seen them on every reality TV show I'd ever watched, from Love Island to Geordie Shore, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and The Hills, it wasn't until recently that I discovered the real reason they're so popular is because they add fullness, volume, and, depending on what you want, dimensions of color - in other words, everything a brunette with fine hair could ever dream of. I'm now obsessed with the id...

Wine Hair Is the Latest Hair Trend Because. . . Wine Not?

What's better than wine in your hand? Wine in both hands, obviously. But even better than that, is have the perfect wine hair to match that delicious beverage in your hands. Yep, wine hair is the trendy new hair hue that's getting people talking, and it's surprisingly stylish. Wine hair is a spectrum of color effects and rich hues, as you might have guessed, inspired by your favorite tipple, whether that's a rich merlot or a fruity malbec. This isn't the first time drinks have been used as hair ...

Newsflash: There Is Such a Thing as Too Much Protein, Especially When It Comes to Your Hair

When choosing a hair mask or conditioners, if you also look for buzzwords like "protein" and "moisture," join the club. But did you know that each component actually has a very different purpose? Hydrating masks will seal in moisture, whereas protein masks add in, spoiler alert, protein. While adding in more of the latter can help rebuild hair fiber, the two have different functions and shouldn't be treated as one in the same. During a recent trip to get my hair dyed, Jack Howard, a colorist a...

Why Avoiding Those Root Touch-Ups Is Actually Costing You Way More Money

There are some things people tell you in life that you probably don't listen to and others you, well, should. "Put on a coat," says your mom. "Never sleep in your makeup," demands your dermatologist (who is absolutely right, of course!). "If you dye your hair, make sure to get your roots touched up every four to six weeks," pleads your colorist. It's likely you rarely play by the book with all of them, particularly the latter. I'm here to tell you exactly why you should listen to your colorist ...

The Expert's Guide to Transitioning to Natural Hair

After a million YouTube videos, tip-laden articles, personal stories, products, and an abundance of patience, the process of transitioning from chemically processed styles to naturally curly and textured hair remains a struggle. It's hard. Committing to the actual stages of it, no matter what your initial transition plan, is like strapping yourself into an emotional roller coaster that you aren't quite sure you're ready to ride.

Ariana Grande's Hairstylist Talks "Glass Hair" and Snatched Ponytails

The ponytail is to Ariana Grande what pin curls were to Marilyn Monroe, and there's one person to thank for the former: Chris Appleton. The LA-based celebrity hair artist has worked his magic on Grande, Jennifer Lopez, and Kim Kardashian and is sharing, in his own words, exactly what that's like. The following story was told to Kelsey Castañon and edited for length and clarity. I've always been fascinated with the power of hair. When I was 8 or 9, I would do my mum's. She worked hard, and I alw...

Kim Kardashian Regrets Her New Bob, but These 7 Celebs Make a Damn Good Case For It

Thinking about switching up your hair before Summer comes to an end? All signs point to: cut that sh*t off. Chances are, you won't regret it (unless you are Kim Kardashian, who recently traded in her long hair for a shoulder-length bob and later tweeted that she misses the length). Case in point: plenty of other celebrities - from Rihanna to Alicia Keys to Kardashian's sister Khloé Kardashian - have gotten in on the end-of-the-Summer cut, further proving that a bob is nothing to regret.

9 Silk Bonnets That Prove Protecting Your Hair at Night Can Also Look Cute

A satin bonnet has been an essential part of nearly every black girl's beauty regimen since . . . well, forever. I remember getting my first head scarf from my mom, which was passed down from her mom. I still tie my hair up at night to this day - and have one in every color and size, which I rotate depending on whether my hair is straight or curly. And while there are tons of bonnets out there, not all of them are created equal. Some people might find a silk-textured headband or bandana more con...

This Is How You Can Protect Your Hair From Chlorine This Summer, According to an Expert

Our hair can go through a lot in the Summer months: though we'd never complain about good weather, the blazing sunshine can be harsh on our strands, and that's before you factor in all that swimming. Living in Asia as a kid, the memory of my mom slapping ketchup on my blond ends after hours spent in the pool is all too familiar. Thank goodness there are now products to specifically help with this damage and discoloration! We quizzed hairstylist to the stars Rita Hazan to find out exactly how to...

14 Surprising Reasons You Could Be Losing Your Hair

We all experience some hair shedding from time to time (in fact, it's normal to lose between 50 and 100 strands every day, as you'll learn more about soon), but if you've gotten to the point where you're noticing bald spots and/or afraid to so much as touch your hair for fear of having it fall out, there may be a more serious problem at the root.

You can't cut corners when it comes to styling and caring for curly hair.

4 Trends on My Summer To-(Hair)Do List

I've always struggled with my hair identity (a hairdentity crisis - is that a thing?). Over the past 10 years, my hair has taken on every pigment in the naturally occurring hair color wheel, from chestnut brown to a disastrous bleach blond that looked nothing like picture on the box I'd purchased for $5 from a drugstore. Though my hair has been color-corrected from the butchered beauty school experimentation that left my hair more "primary color" than 'Daenerys Targaryen platinum,' I've once ...

I Have 1 Hair Goal For This Summer, and It Has Nothing to Do With Trendy Colors or Styles

Image Source: Unsplash / Courtney Clayton My relationship with my hair has always been love/hate. Ever since I can remember, I have wanted long glossy tresses that look perfect the second I jump out of bed - a far cry from the superwavy, predominantly frizzy locks I was born with. As I grew up, I realized that the women I saw on the shiny television advertisements for hair conditioner were a) almost certainly wearing some sort of extensions and b) definitely had a whole team of stylists behind ...

Finesse Your Fine Hair This Summer With This Easy, Heat-Free Routine

I hate blow-drying my hair. It is the bane of my beauty existence. I would rather subsist solely on kale for the rest of my life than take a round brush to my head every morning. (I've been told I'm melodramatic, but this feels like a reasonable statement.) These feelings are intensified in the Summer months, when it's hot and sticky. Unfortunately for my lazy tendencies, I have fine, stick-straight hair that does not air-dry naturally in a way one would consider cute. But with a lot of trial a...

I'm a Busy Mom of 2, and Here's How I Tame My Wavy Hair in the Summer

The sun, the beach, and the ease of Summer breezes through our hair give us the feeling of rejuvenation. But as the humidity hovers in the air, my wavy hair always seems to get frizzier and frizzier. In the past, my hair grew bigger and bigger, and I'd always wave my white flag and surrender to the ponytail. I'd throw the bun on top of my head and look into the mirror, and my reflection would scream back to me, "Bo-ring." See, my Greek ancestors gifted me with some wavy locks that tend to get o...

My Easy Heat-Free Hair Tips For Managing My Curly Hair in the Summer

Whenever Summer rolls around, I have been compared to Hermione Granger, Ms. Frizzle, and, of course, Monica Geller (while ping-ponging and vacationing in Barbados). In other words, my curly hair goes wild. Thanks to the humidity, my usually flat-ironed locks in the colder months are allowed to run rampant in the Summer. All you fellow curly-haired girls out there can relate, I'm sure, that during the Summer, it's just too hard to keep up with all the swimming, outdoor sweating, and extra sunshi...

7 Hair Hacks For Wrangling Rapunzel Locks During the Long, Hot Days of Summer

Summer has always been my favorite time of year. When I was younger, I would anxiously count down the number of days until school let out for Summer vacation. The warmer months meant fun trips, fewer responsibilities, and longer days - ideals I could totally get behind. However, even though summertime is my favorite season, that doesn't mean that I don't recognize its downfalls - namely humidity and heat, two details that don't get along so well with long hair. As someone who has had long hair ...

7 Things I Wish I Had Known Before Cutting Bangs

All it took was one photo of Dakota Johnson to make me ask the question that has plagued every woman at some point: "Should I get bangs?" I pulled up images on my phone and hounded nearly everyone I came into contact with to get their opinion. And then, at my next hair appointment, what was supposed to be a routine trim turned into a shag haircut with bangs. "How did I get here?" I asked myself two days later, when the adrenaline had worn off. "Dakota didn't even have a shag haircut." Even thou...
