We do a pretty good job of protecting our face and body from the sun in Summer (all while looking good at the beach!), but what about our hair? Just like our skin, our hair is prone to sun damage and dehydration from extended exposure to UVA/B rays, so now is the perfect time to invest in some sun-specific hair products and create a protection barrier. Just like we treat our hair to nourishing masks and oils in Winter, these 10 products will keep your hair looking glossy, strong and healthy during the warmer months. From a pure coconut treatment to dry shampoo with added SPF, click through.
Have you ever tried out a new hair shampoo, gel, or serum only to be left with a head full of pimples? While your scalp is an awkward place to get acne, it's not unheard of. But there are many reasons beyond product irritation that have led to the development of bumps. To get tips on the how and why, just keep reading.
We've all done it. You know, gone to the hairdresser following a bad break up and asked for The Chop. Or gone from blonde to brown. Or brown to blonde. Anything but what we had at the time. Not surprisingly, men can sometimes seek change following a break up, too. See Exhibit A, Robert Pattinson. Reminiscent of his December 2009 cover for Vanity Fair — back when he was staying hush on his relationship with Kristen Stewart — the sparkly vampire had serious sex appeal to ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange early this morning.
Sporting the James Dean-esque hairstyle and that stubble, Rob proves that revamping your look post-heartbreak doesn't have to mean drastic change — just a primp and polish. There's a number of different products on the market to take the modern man to next-level hot, and we love The Aromatherapy Co. Nourishing Face and Body Balm ($17.95) for its handy two-in-one sell, as well the 100 per cent pure and natural essential oils of vanilla cocoa spice. Yum.
Want your man to channel Rob's cool 'do? Well you'll have to show him how. Start with adding some texture to his damp hair with a volume mousse, then blow dry up from the roots. Once you have some height, start blow-drying it back on a hot setting, and finish with a setting spray like Paul Mitchell Extra Body Finishing Spray ($22.64).

When I saw Terry Richardson's pictures of Lara Stone in the June/July issue of Vogue Paris sporting some marvellous milkmaid braids, I knew it was time to start re-wearing the trend that was so popular back in '08/09. I LOVE the contrast between the soft style and Lara's dramatically lined eye and bold red lip, but if you'd prefer to tone it down, of course feel free. Check out more pics below and then keep reading for tips on how to recreate this style:
Jeez Louise, the constant changes are enough to make us all dizzy with delight. So to create some calm amongst this stylish storm, here's a quick how-to on her three most recent styles.
Thank me by stealing them and getting your Gleek-chic on . . .
I am really not feeling this weather right now. One day it's humidity that Dubai would be proud of, next torrential rain. As well as causing all of kinds of wardrobe problems, it messes with my mane. And that does NOT make for a happy lady. But I think I've found the solution. Well Gemma Arterton's found the solution for me. Diamond. Thanks, Gem. We kind of touched on her wet-look, high bun yesterday when we were talking about Alexa D (not to be confused with Alexa C) but I've decided that it deserves a full-blown post due to its flexibility to work whatever the weather. The Style.com girls agree which proves that I'm a) not the only one to feel so strongly about high buns (no restraining order necessary), b) Gemma Arterton really is one to watch and c) you're way too chic to let the elements get all up in your business. Put them back in their place pronto with this style. Make it happen with Paul Mitchell Soft Sculpting Spray Gel (18.95) and Frédéric Fekkai Glossing Sheer Shine Mist ($45). Easy. Whaddya think?

Sage (salvia officinalis), also known as garden meadow, is a silvery-green plant with fragrant leaves.
The most common variety of sage was first found growing in regions around the Mediterranean but it can now be found in parts of North America also.
The leaves of the sage herb have been used to relieve sprains, swelling and ulcers, as well as improving the nervous system and memory.
In beauty sage has been known to combat excessive sweat production, awaken the senses and assist with poor circulation. Try MALIN+GOETZ Sage Styling Cream ($34), Dr.Hauschka Skin Care Sage Bath ($42) and Paul Mitchell Lemon Sage Body Wash ($19.95).
