We're delving into all things hair this week, to help you get out of that Winter hair slump. If you're anything like us, you'll walk into Priceline for some dry shampoo and come out $100 poorer and with a cool loot of new products you didn't know you needed, but totally do. When it comes to haircare, the abundance of choice can be a tad overwhelming, so we thought you might like to see what everyone else is buying. To see Priceline's best-selling hair products (and shop them!), come with us.
If there's a lady in your life — whether it be your bestie, boss, mum or nan — who's very well-kept, neat and chic; chances are she's a bit of a classicist when it comes to makeup. She'll more than likely stick to a brand's hero products, and she probably has a very good idea of what she likes in terms of finish, texture, pigment and scent. So. What to buy her for Christmas? We've got 10 fail safe ideas, and we know she'll use all of them. Want more Christmas present ideas? See our other gift guides!
Bright lips! Highlighter! Shimmery shadows! There were so many lovely looks this week, it was hard to narrow down a Top 10, let alone zero in on one little beauty factor. From Jennifer Lopez and her gorgeous glow and deep pink lip, to Amber Heard and those eyes, we kind of had our hair and makeup socks knocked right off — repeatedly. One Aussie actress looked exactly like a doll, so perfect was her look — the big baby blues don't hurt! — and here, we'll show you how to recreate some of it. There were other Aussies, too, at yesterday's Derby Day, who'll inspire you to try something new. You'll read how to highlight them cheekbones of yours (à la Emily Blunt), how to widen and brighten your eyes, and a whole lot more!

When the people we're watching are models, celebrities and performers, we're often faced with gorgeous look after gorgeous look. But this week was a whole new ball game — with model-studded events, celebrity outings and parties coming up to our ears, we had so many beautiful looks to choose from we almost gave up! Don't worry, we pulled through — and in this gallery are the Top 10 most delicious, divine and downright stunning looks we saw on our favourite famous people this week. Lara Bingle leads with the way with her perfect skin, sexy red lip and that ear cuff, fans of The Hills will be stoked to see Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port reunited once more (at least, in this gallery!) and Olivia Palermo nearly blinded us with those shiny, shiny locks of hers. We haven't even mentioned the models yet! Get clicking, and you'll find our favourite looks, plus details on exactly how to achieve them. Enjoy!
The seemingly impossible is possible: you can curl your hair with a hair straightener. It's a simple technique and with a little practice, you'll be able to create soft curls with ease. It's a great look for the Spring racing season either paired with a fascinator or a hair accessory, and, once you master it, creating curls will only take minutes.
We love a bit of behind-the-scenes action here at Bella, and that's why when we spotted these pictures of Heidi Klum filming a commercial, we just had to share! The model mum was showcasing Schwarzkopf's Taft Hair Spray ($4.30) in New York City, and even got splashed with water from a passing taxi to prove the product is the real deal.

It was a trend that dominated the 2011 Spring shows and when we saw it rule the runways again at New York Fashion Week, we knew the sleek 'n slick look is one style to keep in our beauty arsenal and bust out again and again. We saw it at Marchesa and Carolina Hererra in a side part and pulled back, and so you can recreate the look at home, we did some research into the best strong hold hairsprays. Check out our top ten to provide your locks with maximum hold, keeping your wet-look 'do in tip-top shape.
