Curly Bangs Are The Coolest Hairstyle To Try In 2019

We’re officially dubbing 2019 the year of the curly bangs. For too long, bangs have seemed like one of those hairstyles reserved for straight-haired people, or people with a lot of free time to blow-dry their bangs straight. But if stars like Natasha Lyonne and Sandra Oh have shown us anything over the past few months, it’s that curly bangs are downright cool. “I think [it’s] because the contemporary woman doesn’t like spending a lot of time on [her hair],” said Marcel Dagenais, the hairstylist responsible for Lyonne’s “Russian Doll” tresses. “My experience working with women is that they want to embrace their natural texture so they’re not stuck under a blow-dryer or a slave to the flat iron. I think it’s just kind of embracing what you have in 2019.” If you’re curious about trying the tr...

Carrie Underwood Wears The Sparkliest Red Carpet Look At The ACM Awards

Carrie Underwood donned a dramatic black and silver sparkly look at the 2019 Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday.  “The Champion” singer and her husband, NHL player Mike Fisher, walked the red carpet together at the award show in Las Vegas. Underwood wore a gorgeous, one-shoulder gown by Nicolas Jebran that was covered in silver sparkles and showed off not one, but two thigh-high slits. She paired the look with black and silver stilettos, a half-up, half-down hair do and a sensational smokey eye.  Axelle/Bauer-Griffin via Getty Images Underwood attends the 54th Academy of Country Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 7 in Las Vegas.  “I am zipped so tight in this dress … it’s pushing things up to places where it doesn’t normally go,” the country singer joked in an int...

Anti-Pollution Skin Care Is The Latest Beauty Trend You Should Know About

Skin care routines can be tailored to address pretty much any issue, be it acne, dry skin, clogged pores or even the effects of air pollution. That last one might seem a little odd or gimmicky, but as it happens, anti-pollution skin care has become a growing trend in the beauty industry. Brands like Kiehl’s and Drunk Elephant have released products that claim to protect skin against pollutants in the air. Air pollution’s effects on our health have been studied for a long time. In terms of skin care, there is research that suggests pollution can lead to things like inflammation and premature aging, so the increasing popularity of anti-pollution beauty and skin care products isn’t a coincidence. “Our skin impacts what we are [absorbing] into our body. We have to protect ourselves from the ou...

This Trend Forecaster’s Job Is To Decide What Colors We’ll Be Wearing

In one of the most memorable scenes in “The Devil Wears Prada,” the silver-haired editor Miranda Priestly lectures her lowly, fashion-unaware co-assistant, Andy, on the likely origin of her “lumpy blue sweater.” The sweater isn’t just any shade of blue, it is cerulean, which, Priestly points out, appeared prominently in a 2002 Oscar de la Renta collection and then again in an Yves Saint Laurent collection before being “filtered down through the department stores” and into “some clearance bin” in which Andy had presumably found it. The specific shade of blue, Priestly states, “represents millions of dollars and countless jobs” before telling Andy, “It’s sort of comical how you think that you’ve made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you’re wearing the sweate...

Lip Thread Lifts: What To Know About This Lip-Enhancing Procedure

Over the past few years, lip fillers have become the go-to nonsurgical procedure for celebrities, influencers and any other individual looking to plump their pout, à la Kylie Jenner. The trend, at least according to many an Instagram photo, perpetuates the idea that bigger is better. Though it’s possible to achieve a subtle result with filler, there’s an alternative treatment gaining popularity in the cosmetic enhancement world called the lip thread lift. It’s a nonsurgical procedure that uses small, dissolvable threads (sutures, essentially) to help boost collagen in the lips and smooth out fine lines around the mouth. The goal isn’t necessarily to add volume but to add definition. Threads have been popular in Europe for a while now, according to Dr. Jason Emer, a board-certified dermatol...

Photos Of Alec Baldwin In The ’80s Are Almost Too Good To Be True

The actor’s career kicked off in 1980, when he was cast as Billy Aldrich in “The Doctors,” a daytime soap that rivaled “General Hospital.” Then came a role in a primetime medical drama, “Cutter To Houston,” in which he played Dr. Hal Wexler. Since then, he’s appeared in a slew of roles spanning TV, Broadway and film ― “Knots Landing,” Beetlejuice” and “Serious Money,” just to name a few ― cementing his place as one of Hollywood’s top stars (and the most famous of the Baldwin brothers). One constant, especially in those early days, was Baldwin’s impressive head of hair. Whether it was slicked back or blowing in the wind, it always looked worthy of a shampoo commercial. It should also be noted that back in the ’80s, Baldwin rocked the hell out of short-shorts and even made a neckerchief work...

The Best Lingerie For People Who Aren’t Lingerie People

When you think of lingerie, you probably think of frills, complicated lace, bows and maybe even Victoria’s Secret. But for all the folks who hate lingerie because you think it’s too fussy, just know there’s a whole world of understated (but still sexy) undergarments out there waiting for you. We’re talking minimal bra and underwear sets, athletic-style details and classic yet comfortable bodysuits, all made with care. Excessive frills and embellishments are optional.

While designing for the brand’s collection, she told HuffPost via email that she likes to “focus on simplicity in a design that lets the wearer feel confident and feminine in their natural shape ...

Vintage Hollywood Photos Of Gorgeous Sleepwear

Just look at the women of Old Hollywood, for example. When it came time for lounging at home (or sometimes at the beach), they wore matching pajama sets, silk dressing gowns and plush robes that made tasks as mundane as ironing or talking on the phone look glamorous. But that doesn’t mean their garments were any less comfortable than your average sweats.

Why You’ve Got Dark Circles Under Your Eyes When You’re Not Tired

We’ve all probably dealt with dark circles under our eyes at one point or another, and while it’s easy to blame them on a lack of sleep, that’s only one of many factors that might be contributing to that pesky under-eye darkness. “When people talk about dark circles under the eyes, it seems to be a catch-all phrase,” Dr. Shari Lipner, dermatologist at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian, told HuffPost. “Some people are really referring to dark pigmentation in the under-eye area and some people are speaking about more puffiness or edema, bags under the eyes or just a depression, or even just wrinkles.” Lipner said it’s important to note that while some of those factors can definitely contribute to the look of dark circles under the eyes, they aren’t all the same thing. Let’s bre...
