The Most Iconic Celebrity Hairstyles for Men

Although they may not like to admit it, most men copy their style from celebrities. Maybe they aren’t devouring the tabloids or browsing the blogs as frequently as women do, but when a popular male haircut hits the mainstream, you can surely trace its roots back to Hollywood. From the Fresh Prince’s high-top to Justin Bieber’s fringe, We take a look back at some of the most famous dude ’dos that spawned a million copycats.

Fifty years before Jersey Shore stars flaunted their overly gelled tresses on TV, Elvis made his slicked-back style a national sensation. His pièce de résistance? One curled lock that fell just above his eyes.

In the 1960s, John, Paul, George, and Ringo conquered the world with both their music and their identical hairstyles. The group's shaggy bowl cut was nicknamed the “mop top.”

Probably the most famous man to wear dreadlocks, Bob grew out his long, matted coils after joining the Rastafarian movement in the 1960s. Still popular today, the twisted locks take years to grow.

Almost more famous than his music, Jon’s feathery mane stole the hearts of women across America and was the inspiration for any guy wanting to be rocker-cool in the 1980s.


A variation on the Afro, the flat top was characterized by a large square block on top of the head and closely shaved sides, like Will Smith displayed on The Fresh Prince of Bell Air. To add more statement to the look, some guys liked to carve letters or designs into the shaved portion of hair.

In the early ’90s, grunge music took over American pop culture. Lazy grooming habits and long, unwashed locks became popular thanks to Nirvana’s front man Kurt Cobain.

In the late 1990s, rappers like Snoop Dogg launched another hair trend for men: cornrows. Using a technique similar to French braiding, the small plaits were created by weaving hair close to the scalp in simple straight lines or in complicated designs.


A fan of constantly (and dramatically!) changing his hairstyle, David popularized the modern-day Mohawk (a.k.a the faux-hawk) in the early 2000s. His hair was slightly longer in the front and he finger-combed his messy mane into a spiky style on top.

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber’s swooped fringe has become all the rage for teens in recent years. Although the singer has moved away from his signature ’do, the shaggy style is still popular in skateboarding circles.

Itchy Scalp Solutions

Does your scalp get dry, itchy, and (eek!) flaky when the weather gets colder? In winter, the terrible trinity of low humidity, freezing temperatures, and indoor heating severely dries out your skin—even under your hair. Since a healthy, shiny mane really starts below the roots, a dehydrated surface can cause lots of bad hair days, not to mention annoying itchiness.

1 Rodin Olio Lusso Hair and Scalp Treatment

Made from moisturizing oils such as jojoba, sunflower seed, and sweet almond, the super oil can repair a dry scalp with just two small drops a day. Apply the treatment to damp or dry hair and massage it in with your fingers, spreading it all over. Scratching causing painfully sensitive spots? The gentle oil calms irritated patches of skin almost instantly upon contact.

2 Philip Kingsley Scalp Mask

Although it may seem icky, dandruff is actually just harmless yeast that grows excessively on your scalp. Philip Kingsley’s scalp mask contains piroctone olamine, which is an antimicrobial ingredient (i.e., it kills the yeast!). The intense treatment also includes salicylic acid to exfoliate the scalp surface, and menthol and camphor, which are classic dandruff-fighting ingredients that stimulate blood circulation while giving off a cooling, soothing feel.

3 Neutrogena Triple Moisture Dry Scalp Shampoo

For daily washings, always look for classic ingredients such as pyrithione zinc that kills the yeast growth and mint extract which gives you that comforting, cooling sensation. If you hate the strong smell of Head & Shoulders, try Neutrogena’s Triple Moisture Dry Scalp Smoothing Shampo. It is slightly sweeter and less pungent, thanks to the apricot and sweet almond extracts (which are also ultra-hydrating—bonus!).

Trend: Blackened Beauty

Who says black is limited to the lash line? Coloring unexpected features is one of the easiest ways to create a head-turning look. And since we’re deep into the most creative makeup month of the year, why not experiment with the popular blackened hues of the season? We show you how to splash the newest inky shades across your face.

1 MAC Paint Pot in For Effect

Black gets a shimmering makeover with MAC’s newest holiday Paint Pot in For Effect. Wear this gritty charcoal on your lids and fade the color toward your temples for an avant-garde extended smoky eye.

2 Illamasqua Lipstick in Kontrol

Cyber-Goth meets just bitten with Illamasqua’s latest lip color. This black-based violet blue goes on smoothly and suits multiple complexions. It’s one of the most unique shades we’ve seen all season—try it with clean champagne-hued eyes and let your wicked grape lips do the talking.

3 Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat in Ink Splatter

The crackle craze isn’t over just yet! Sally Hansen’s newest jet-black topcoat delivers an on-trend porcelain effect. For a softer, monochromatic spin on this typically bold texture, pair this glossy, crackled finish with a matte ebony base.

Do You Need Gluten-Free Skin Care?

The controversy over gluten-free products has hit the beauty industry. The hottest point of contention? The claim that gluten in your cleansers and creams can make you sick. While most researchers and doctors say the two aren’t related, many Beauties think otherwise. We investigates whether you should be worried about gluten-based ingredients in your favorite products.
Gluten is a special type of protein commonly found in many grains such as wheat, barley, and rye. For most people, it gives foods a delightfully doughy elastic texture, but for others, it’s considered a dangerous bodily invader. Beauties who suffer from a digestive disorder called celiac disease react intensely to any gluten-based particles in their system. The body mounts an immune reaction that damages the small intestine, interferes with nutrient absorption from food, and can also cause a blistering, itchy rash on the skin called dermatitis herpetiformis.
Many of these side effects are caused internally, but what about the products we slather and smear atop our skin? Should we be worried about the gluten-based ingredients found in our skin-care routine? The answer is not so black and white, according to New Orleans-based dermatologist Patricia Farris, M.D. “While gluten is not absorbed through the skin, patients may be sensitive to compounds in extracts of wheat, rye, and barley that can actually penetrate the skin,” says Dr. Farris. And even though we’re careful with our beauty products, topical ingredients can still enter the body in trace amounts through the nasal cavities and mouth.
Gluten is still a hot marketing buzzword, and many beauty brands have jumped on the bandwagon to ensure their products are as gluten- and wheat-free as possible. German natural brand Dr. Hauschka even had all of its products tested for gluten content by the German Celiac Organization (124 of out 130 made the cut!).
So what does this mean for a Beauty without any sensitivities? Honestly, not much. But for those who already suffer from gluten allergies, it’s time to check your skin-care labels for any potential irritants.

Mel B rocked a modernized bouffant with a unique rolled-up effect. A thick leather headband added balance at the base of the textured pouf.

Get Runway Ready Skin

Everyone wants perfect, glowing, blemish-free, skin with invisible pores, and more than one makeup artist has said that if the base isn't perfect, then makeup won't ever look flawless on top. Barefaced beauty is also huge on the catwalk right now. The spring/summer 2012 shows delivered model after model with little more than eye liner and a little blush. Luckily, more than one great product can help you achieve this look, from your cleanser to your foundation.

1 Metamour Creme Cleanse

Using a cleanser morning and night is essential to maintaining a beautiful, clear complexion. This certified-organic creamy cleanser is so thick it's almost like a moisturizer, and it really works to clean your skin. Ingredients such as rose water and lavender help to soothe, and oat amino acids provide lots of moisture. It leaves your skin silky soft and clear, and is perfect in the winter when your face needs extra moisturizer.

2 Shiseido Future Solution Ultra Regenerating Serum

If you haven't heard about serums, listen up! A serum is a highly concentrated product that you apply before your moisturizer. This formula contains tiny microbeads that are massaged into your skin and Shiseido's signature ingredient, Skingenecell 1P, which stops the uneven breakdown of skin cells and encourages cell turnover. At $225, it’s not cheap, but a little goes a long way and you'll notice the difference within a few days.

3 Clinique RepairWear Laser Focus Makeup

If your skin isn't quite like porcelain on its own, then nothing can perfect it like foundation. Clinique's latest offering incorporates ingredients from its Anti-Aging Serum, so you not only cover blemishes and uneven skin tone but also prevent and repair UV damage. Sheer coverage means you can build layers and focus on areas that are more problematic.

DIY Garlic Beauty Recipes

When you’re not using garlic to fight off vampires this month, you can incorporate it into your beauty regimen! Originally from Asia, this perennial bulb was used in most ancient civilizations as food or medicine. Today, garlic is used all over the world in countless capacities (women even get garlic manicures in the Dominican Republic!). Its roster of health benefits seems to grow by the minute, and we’re happy to say good skin is on that list. Because of garlic’s superior antibacterial properties, it’s the perfect ingredient for your face and body. And while garlic breath isn’t the ideal fragrance for a first date (you can thank the sulfuric enzyme allinaise for that signature scent), you can still take advantage of this rock-star plant in your beauty routine. Here are some of recipes for keeping your complexion clear and fang-free.
  1. 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  2. 1 Tbsp ground oatmeal
  3. 1 drop tea tree oil
  4. 3 drops lemon juice
  5. 1 Tbsp honey Enough to form a paste
Mix all ingredients except honey in a small bowl, then slowly add in the honey until the consistency is viscous. Spread a thin layer of paste onto clean skin. After letting it sit for two minutes, gently exfoliate your face for one minute, then rinse with warm water. Use this mask three times a week to see a visible reduction in blackheads.
  1. 1 medium-size tomato, mashed Or squeezed in a juicer
  2. 1 clove garlic, mashed
Tomato and garlic both have fantastic antiseptic qualities, making them appropriate ingredients for clogged skin. Combine mashed tomato and garlic, then spread a thin layer onto your face. After 20 minutes, wash your face with lukewarm water and seal your pores with a final splash of cold water.
  1. 1 clove garlic, raw
  2. Small plastic ziplock bag To store the garlic in
Your newest pimple fighter has been waiting for you in the kitchen all along! You can spot-treat those surprise face-wreckers with this pungent, earthy bulb. Cut into a freshly shelled piece of raw garlic and rub it onto your blemish. You’ll see a reduction in redness and swelling within the day!

Falling For Hats This Season

We love the extra outfit options that arrive with colder weather, and hats are one of them. A great beanie, fedora, or turban-style wrap can spice up your outfit and add the perfect finishing touch, and there are so many styles to choose from! With a huge range of colors, textures, and fabrics available, it's good to try on lots of styles before committing to one. It's also fun to mix and match different hairdos and makeup looks with your hats.

A cute, fuzzy beanie is perfect for keeping your head warm when the weather gets really cold. It also looks adorable with loose tumbling curls and smoky eyes.

A floppy '70s-inspired hat will always be in style and can be worn with short hair, long hair, and up or down styles.

While a turban-like wrap isn't for everyone, it does work well on a lot of head shapes. Choose one with interesting details, like these studs, and pair it with bright lips.

A sturdy fedora adds an edge to a feminine look and will also keep your head warm.

Send in The Clowns

For most people, clowns are either terrifying or surprisingly funny, so why not be one this Halloween? Instead of dressing up as the overdone sexy Catwoman or scary vampire, be inspired by these cute and creepy interpretations.

Create a friendly, sweet clown with pink and purple makeup and completes the look with rhinestone tears!

Use black face paint on your teeth to create the effect of razor-sharp points and turn yourself into an evil clown.
Sometimes the clown that smiles the biggest is the scariest! Extra-high eyebrows and a red nose are classic clown features.

Elizabeth Olsen (yup, younger sister to style icons Ashley and Mary-Kate!) may have Hollywood buzzing about her amazing performance in the upcoming flick Martha Marcy May Marlene and her impeccable fashion on the red carpet, but we love her adventurous beauty spirit. Whether she’s sporting rich, rosy lipsticks or fresh denim-colored nail polish, the actress (who likes to go by Lizzie) seems to have already mastered an effortlessly chic style.

4 Ingredients That Can Make You Break Out!

Skin mostly breaks out in blemishes from hormonal imbalances or an improper skin-care routine, but do you ever wonder what can cause those irritating, un-acne-like bumps and rashes? We asked New Orleans-based dermatologist Nia Terezakis, M.D., which other environmental factors can irritate your skin, and we were surprised by the answers. If your face and body are going berserk and you've already ruled out your skin-care routine, here are four other possible allergen offenders.
If you think your skin breaks out from a dirty pillow, you're only partly correct. The culprit actually lives within the sheets, not on top! People who use fragrant fabric-softener sheets sometimes forget to take them out of the pillowcase after doing laundry. As a result, your face rests directly on the softener all night, and you wake up with an unsightly rash. "Most laundry detergents are available without any added perfume, but fabric softeners still contain highly irritating aggressors," warns Dr. Terezakis. After your laundry takes a tumble in the dryer, take extra care to discard the dryer sheets.
When you can't figure out what's making you break out, check the ingredients of your hair dye. Regular chemical dye contains many irritating ingredients that affect the face more than the scalp! Paraphenylenediamine (PPD), a common dyeing agent, can cause dermatitis on sensitive skin. "If a patient is sensitive, I'll have them switch to a henna-based dye instead," says Dr. Terezakis.
Cocamide is a popular chemical agent that adds viscosity to shampoo and can cause rashes around the scalp, neck, and even the hands. Hairdressers with chronic dermatitis can develop hand eczema from constant contact with this particular allergen and potential carcinogen, which is why some use gloves to wash clients’ hair. Cocamide has myriad chemical derivatives, so try to avoid these ingredients in your next shampoo if you're allergy-prone: Cocamide DEA, Cocamide MEA, DEA-Cetyl Phosphate, DEA Oleth-3 Phosphate, Lauramide DEA, Linoleamide MEA, Myristamide DEA, Oleamide DEA, Stearamide MEA, TEA-Lauryl Sulfate, and Triethanolamine.
Beauties with artificial nails are often exposed to toxic fumes and allergens, which can aggravate immediately after an appointment. If you touch your cheeks, your neck, and even your eyelids, these allergens can irritate in a very short amount of time. "When patients come in with unknown allergic reactions, the first thing I tell them is to look at their fingernails," explains Dr. Terezakis. "People with sensitive skin are often very reactive to the fumes." Don't worry, Beauties—the contact allergy only occurs immediately after a nail treatment. Once the fumes are gone, you're good to go!
If you do end up with a small rash from an environmental irritant, first place a cool compress on the area to minimize inflammation. Soothe the rash using simple formulas with cooling properties (Dr. Terezakis recommends the Aveeno Ultra-Calming Collection). If your rash is more aggressive, you can apply a topical hydrocortisone to reduce redness.

What's Your Top Knot Style?

After a summer filled with loose side-swept waves, celebrities have returned to piling their locks into chic top knots. While we love that the trend is the easiest updo to master (second to the ponytail, of course!), the bun is also incredibly versatile. Whether you’re rushing to the office or getting glam for a big night out, the simple style can be completed in minutes. Check out how these celebrities chose to rock the rolled-up fad:

Lauren Conrad named her signature updo the “fun bun.” This elegant take on the trend works best with longer locks, as the thick swoop requires more hair.

4 Surprising Curly Hair Myths

image courtesy of
Did you know an estimated 65 percent of women have naturally curly or wavy hair? It’s true, and many are guilty of styling with the wrong set of hair rules. Think your waves are uncontrollable? You might just be making a classic hair-care mistake. Common complaints like frizz, tangles, and texture are easily fixed when you know the proper way to tame your mane. We asked curly-hair guru and owner of Devachan Salons and Spa, Lorraine Massey, to separate fact from fiction so you can master your sexy spirals—and keep the bad-hair days at bay!
MYTH: You can brush your curls into submission (i.e., straight).
“It may seem like you can flatten or smooth your curly hair by brushing it. But the act of brushing or combing your hair actually disturbs the curls’ natural formation and ruffles each strand’s cuticle,” says Lorraine. “This causes the curls to break apart, and the result of these dispersed curls is frizz, frizz, and more frizz.” Instead, use your fingers to comb through your curls only when your hair is wet and saturated with conditioner when you’re in the shower. “Curly hair is fragile, and the conditioner prevents breakage,” Lorraine explains. Once you get out of the shower, gently scrunch in a silicone-free, alcohol-free gel into soaking-wet hair. This captures the curl’s natural formation and again, prevents frizz. Then don’t touch your hair until it’s totally dry. “Touching before the curls are properly formed and dry causes the same friction as a brush. It disperses the curls and causes the ongoing dreaded frustration of the frizz!” says Lorraine.
MYTH: Any shampoo that says it’s for curly hair will do.
Absolutely not! “Traditional shampoos have been causing curly girls to hate their hair for decades. That’s because traditional shampoos contain harsh detergents called sulfates, such as sodium lauryl sulfate,” says Lorraine. Sulfates are foaming agents that strip curly hair of its natural oils, and since curly hair is naturally dry and has little to no natural oil, it needs all the moisture it can retain and absorb to be healthy and frizz-free. (Sulfates are the same foaming agents in dish soap and laundry detergent, and you wouldn’t wash your hair with those products, would you?) Even some shampoos that say they’re for curly hair contain these ingredients, so beware—and read labels! Instead, “cleanse hair with 100% sulfate-free cleansers and shampoos, and if you can’t find one at a store near you, cleanse your hair with silicone-free conditioner,” says Lorraine. “What cleans the hair and scalp the most is friction so you can just apply your sulfate-free cleanser or your conditioner to your finger-tips and firmly but gently massage your scalp to break up dirt.” Then rinse the condition out with water to remove it from your hair.
MYTH: Conditioner is optional.
“Conditioner is a curly girl’s BFF!” gushes Lorraine. “Once curly hair fibers are sufficiently hydrated with conditioner, they will hold onto the moisture they need and the frizz will go away. Curly hair is porous, but the conditioner fills the holes, a bit like spackle on a wall. It also smooths and fills in the surface so that light can reflect off it.” Leave some or all of your conditioner in your hair rather than rinsing. Generally, the tighter the curl or the drier your hair is, the more conditioner you need to leave in. Also, the frizzier, your hair typically is, the more conditioner you need to leave in. “Remember: Frizz is just a curl begging for more moisture—which is conditioner!” says Lorraine.
MYTH: Curly hair can be cut the same as straight hair.
“This couldn’t be further from the truth. Curly hair has a mind of its own! So curly hair needs to be cut when it’s dry, not wet,” says Lorraine. “That’s because wet curls and dry curls are like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Some curls easily hit half way down your back when they’re wet, but then spring up as much as 6 to 10 inches when they dry!” The problem? “If you get your hair cut when it’s wet, once it dries it will contract and shrink to a totally different length. You’ll likely realize that too much was taken off, and you’ll look like a shaved poodle and need months or years for your hair to grow back,” says Lorraine. Also, we wear our hair dry, so that’s how it should be cut. The point? “Curly hair should be cut only when the curls are dry and in their natural place. If your hairstylist insists on cutting your hair when it’s wet, then know that you do have the choice of walking (or running!) the other way and finding a stylist who is willing to cut your curls the right way—when they’re dry.”

Easy Beauty Fix-Its

Courtesy of The Blonde Salad
Ever managed to get a huge stain on your dress just before a first date, or had to blow your nose right before a big interview but couldn’t find a tissue? These incidences (and many more like them) can happen almost every day, and they can make us feel frustrated and a little confident. Luckily, we have many beauty tips and solutions that you can use to spare yourself those awkward moments.
1. Make an Emergency Kit
Fill a small makeup bag with adhesive bandages, tissues, nail polish remover wipes, a nail file, hand sanitizer, and double-sided tape strips, and put it in your handbag. You’ll never know when you’ll desperately need one of these items, and they can all do wonders in a pinch.
2. Prepare a Travel Bag
Do you always arrive at the hotel and realize you forgot to pack an essential, like toothpaste or face wash? Put together a travel makeup bag at home and keep it in your medicine cabinet. Fill it with travel-sized bottles of your favorite body wash and cleanser, and keep an extra toothbrush and mini toothpaste in there at all times.
3. Refrigerate
Keep your de-puffing eye roller in the refrigerator for a last-minute treatment on puffy eyes. Use it just before you rush out the door to make yourself look more awake in an instant. This way when you're running out the door, you'll get an instant wake up!
4. Fan It
It's never chic for a lady to perspire, so keep a small fold-out fan in your handbag during the summer months. You'll be cool and refined!
5. Keep a Stash of Personalized Stationery
There is nothing nicer than sending a handwritten note to thank an interviewer, gift giver or party host. Keep a stack at home so you always have some on hand.
6. Practice Makes Perfect
Wear your new heels around the house with thick socks to practice walking in them and stretch them out. If it works for Victoria Beckham, it will work for you!
7. Buy in Bulk
Always running out of cotton balls, nail polish remover, or wax strips when you need them the most? Buy them in bulk.
