We're hereby naming this week the week of the chop. With major three major stars taking the leap and chopping their hair — or parts of it ‐ off, it's evident that stylish manes are the main event in celebrity beauty right now. From Michelle Obama's fabulously full fringe, to Nicole Richie's practically perfect lob — we think she took inspiration from the Karlie Kloss-owned "haircut of the year" — there were so many looks that we loved this week. Also taking up residence in our top ten? Jennifer Lopez with her glowing natural beauty, Willa Holland and Rihanna with bold lips, and one perfect ponytail that we can't wait to try. Dive in to this very beauty-full celeb world to see the rest!
In the spirit of Valentine's Day, MAC Cosmetics is releasing a makeup collection inspired by one classic love triangle: Archie, Betty, and Veronica. The latest cartoon collaboration follows in the fabulous footsteps of Miss Piggy and Wonder Woman, but the Archie's Girls collection is even more exciting because there are two lines, one for each competing girlfriend. Sweet and innocent Betty has been translated into pale pinks and peaches, while daring and brazen Veronica becomes deep shades of red and plum. The Archie's Girls collection is available in the US from January 30, and is expected to arrive in Australia soon after. Keep your eyes peeled!
We're kicking-off Australia Day with none other than the beautiful Kate Ritchie. The ex-soapy star and radio presenter is now hard at work on a different aspect of the media and entertainment industry — writing — but she's also set to sit back in the acting chair for a new ABC drama. We spoke to the stunning brunette about her favourite products and found out what it's like to live a day in her life.

What's more Australian than a gorgeous girl leaving the beach with sexy, salty, textured hair? We say: nothing. With Australia Day fast approaching (um, it's tomorrow), we've got your nails covered and your fun outfit sorted out nicely, but the easiest way to amp up your Summer sex appeal and overall cool-girl beauty look is by spritzing a good quality sea salt spray through your locks. A few of us here at Sugar are big fans at the stuff, so we've tried and tested most of these. And let us tell you, they've got the goods. They don't weigh your hair down or leave it looking greasy, and they actually give you that sexy hair you've always wanted — think Lara Bingle, Sienna Miller and Jodi Gordon. Click through to see which ones we recommend, then spritz your way into your Oz Day delecbrations!

Happy Friday! Once again, our week at Sugar has been filled with lots of hard work, and many fun moments to sweeten the deal along the way. At first, we were transfixed by an infamous television event, but our attention quickly turned to the many amazing A/W '13 items that we got to peek at. From luscious silks and prints to mixed-metal necklaces, FabSugar editor Ali was up to her ears in pretty new pieces. BellaSugar kept busy with new nail polish reviews, bagloads of mascara and something even more exciting (you'll have to see inside!), while PopSugar was hitting movie screenings and trying out the tacos at a pop-up bar near our office. There was plenty more keeping us busy, though — click through to check it all out!

If you're feeling under the weather, but OK enough to head out into the world (and you're certain you won't be spreading the germ love around), there are a few quick things to do with your makeup and skin care routine to look like you're 100 percent. Nobody will know you'd rather be in bed!
