How To Choose The Best Shampoo For Your Hair Type

The importance of shampooing has been drilled into our brains since we were little. Having grease and grime on our scalps isn't very appealing, after all. What our moms likely didn't tell us? Which shampoo — of the many options — we should be using.Just like not all conditioners are created equal, shampoos differ widely. While some things may be obvious (if your hair is fine and straight, don't use a product made for thick, curly strands), we also understand that the countless choices can be ov...

6 Gentle Cleansers That'll Make You Rethink Your Hair Routine

With scalp facials and exfoliators, sheet masks, and cooling leave-ins on the menu, the options for hair maintenance are more comprehensive than ever. But even if you opt out of an exhaustive 10-step routine that rivals your skin-care regimen, it still might be time to re-evaluate your shampoo. While there are tons of ingredients and factors to take into consideration (parabens, artificial fragrances, the list goes on), there's one question that seems to come up again and again: Can formulas lo...

Exactly How These 3 Cool Girls Style Their Wavy Bobs

Hair trends come and go, but the bob is much more than a trend: It's a classic. No matter the decade, the color, the texture, or the variation — sci-fi bobs, '90s bobs, grown-out lobs — a shoulder-length cut is never a bad idea. And lately, we've been seeing a lot of air-dry enthusiasts embracing the wavy bob... with good reason. We first spotted the cut on the Louis Vuitton Fall 2018 runway, and on the tousled heads of the chicest French girls soon after that. Now, we're obsessed.The easy, bre...

There are trends, and there are trends: the ones so beloved by celebs and the everywoman alike that they just don’t seem to quit. They pop up over and over again, until they’re no longer just crazes — they’re signs of our times. The hair trend with perhaps the most longevity? Gotta be platinum.

So, why shou...

11 Products Our Editors Swear By For Perfectly Air-Dried Hair

If this year's red carpets have taught us anything, it's that leaving the house with wet hair may just be the smartest trend to follow right now.

This Is NYC's Hottest Haircut Right Now

Photo: Courtesy of Hairstory. Saltwater texture, loosely tousled waves, imperfect layers — the hallmarks of the quintessential L.A. haircut are easy to identify. Pinterest and every West Coast salon's Instagram account are testament to that. But the East Coast haircut of choice is a little harder to nail down. What is their answer to L.A.'s beach-babe wave?According to Michael Gordon, founder of Bumble and bumble and cool-kid hair collective Hairstory, the look that's about to take over the ...

14 Game-Changing Beauty Buys Pros Are Thankful For

Thanksgiving is about sneaking mouthfuls of whipped cream straight from the can, trying to pace your wine intake to little avail, and that family game that involves going around the table and saying one thing you're grateful for.

Moms like sincerity during the holidays.We, on the other hand, recognize the importa...

Men's Haircuts You HAVE To See

Comment on homemade merguez with herby yogurt by Gene

Your moppet is adorable, as an adult with curls the search has been long and hard but Hairstory products are the end of my rainbow. One cleanser, a couple products (and pure aloe) and my hair is happy. Now to find someone to cut it reliably… Also, love your recipes. We’re on a first name basis with you in my house.

3 Women Prove That Rainbow Hair Has No Age Limit

Photographed by Katie McCurdy. When we heard that more and more women — women in the 60+ age group, to be specific — were experimenting with brightly colored hair, we were all about it. After all, as the iconic Baddie Winkle would likely argue, having the time of your life and doing whatever damn thing you want has no age limit. To show our support for this awesome movement, we scouted three bold women and teamed up with Wes Sharpton and Roxie Darling at Hairstory to give them the rainbow ha...

R29 Beauty Editors' Most Treasured #Empties

When recommending beauty products is your job, you go through hella serums, moisturizers, eyeliners, lipsticks, scrubs, eyeshadows, volumizing sprays, blowdry extenders, concealers...okay, we'll stop. Because of the wild influx of goodies, beauty editors rarely finish an item. Whether we ultimately like or hate a product, it's usually time to move on to the next before the first is done. So we'll pass on the gently used item to a friend, colleague, or our moms — and start something fresh...

Back To My Roots: Why I Got Sick Of Being A Blonde

Raise your hand if you miss something about your childhood. I miss my grandmother, I miss not having to think about paying the bills, I miss living in a world before 9/11 and frequent mass shootings, I miss Moscow, where I lived until I was 7 — and, on a more superficial note, I miss being a strawberry blonde.When I was a teenager and still had traces of the Titian-like color, my grandmother declared under no uncertain terms that I was not allowed to dye my hair, ever, until it turned gr...

This Braided Headband DIY Is an Unexpected Bridesmaids Hairstyle Idea

You're probably sick of every blow-dry bar bridesmaid menu option: the fishtail, the half-up bun, the waterfall, etc. Been there. Instagrammed that. This season, try something dainty and unexpected: a braided headband. We love this style because it allows you to wear your hair down; it works with waves, curls, and sleek styles; and it looks just as pretty on longer lengths as it does lobs. Plus, the style functionally pulls some of your strands out of your face. Hairstylist Gina Schiappacasse f...

The One Product That Saved My Fried Hair

I am the ultimate lazy girl when it comes to my hair. While I'll happily spend an hour in front of the mirror painting my face on, I typically look for hair products that provide maximum impact with minimal fuss. My regular hair routine takes two minutes, tops. You may ask, then, why I decided to dye my hair a fairly high-maintenance shade of blond about a week ago. Everyone told me that once I went blond, my hair would require a lot more help to get it looking its best.Well, I'm here to...

This Photo Series Shows The Beauty Of Body Hair (NSFW)

It's no secret that many people have opinions, solicited or not, about female body hair. Many of these people insist, in fairly vehement tones, that it has no place in polite society. That attitude has recently prompted more and more women to come out on social media and embrace their natural body hair, redefining what it is, and, more importantly, what it's not -- i.e. something to be ashamed of. Plenty of women eschew the razor for practical reasons (shaving is a time suck, it irritates skin,...

The Beauty Products We Can't Shut Up About

Here at R29, we spend a lot of time scouting for beauty products you haven't already heard of, despite the fact that there's a treasure trove of cult classics to consider. What beauty junkie, for instance, hasn't eyed a bottle of, say, that infamous NARS Orgasm blush? The ultra-luxe Eve Lom cleansing balm? We've seen them mentioned on websites, magazines, and heard about their allegedly miraculous abilities straight from the mouths of our favorite YouTubers. So, we thought: We could do a list of...
