Nicole Kidman's Oscars Hair Came Courtesy of This New H&M-Owned Beauty Line

If you haven’t shopped at & Other Stories , click on the link to the site, call in sick today, and cozy on up to a bona-fide fashion girl’s fantasy . The affordable brand, which is owned by H&M, offers trendy pieces that retail for under $200. Every item comes from three different ateliers based in Paris, Stockholm, and Los Angeles and features striking silhouettes that are both chic and cutting edge.

Until now, the brand has stuck with making clothes, but Nicole Kidman debuted its hair products at the 2018 Oscars. We feel confident enough to call it now: by the way Nicole looks, the line is going to become a beauty mainstay.

While looking like a literal present in her sealed-with-a-bow Armani gown , Nicole kept her hair sleek and sexy. Her uberstraight strands were a delightful contrast to the sweet dress, and the style came courtesy of four new items from & Other Stories.

Hairstylist Kylee Heath codeveloped the new line (which launches this Summer) and worked her magic on Nicole. She began by applying her Universal Blowout Lotion and Fullness Thickening Cream to Nicole’s damp strands. Then she combed through everything and used a Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer ($399) on its highest heat and speed settings. After that, Kylee added & Other Stories Fullness Volume Powder, which gave just a touch of volume around her client’s roots. Then, she straightened Nicole’s hair and topped off everything with & Other Stories Universal Hairspray.

So yeah, safe to say we’ll be heading straight for an & Other Stories store come Summer, so we can find our inner Nicole Kidman.

Emma Watson's Baby Bangs and Shaggy Lob Are Polarizing the Internet

What an Oscars night Emma Watson had! First, the star rolled up to the Vanity Fair afterparty with an unfortunately grammatically incorrect, but still extremely relevant tattoo that celebrated the Time’s Up Movement . But it wasn’t just the missing apostrophe that got the internet buzzing. Emma also rocked one of this season’s most polarizing haircuts: a modern shag with baby bangs.

Emma isn’t the first celebrity, or even the first celebrity Emma, to rock this controversial style. You may recall that Emma Roberts showed up to the SAG Awards wearing blunt fringe (though those were faux) and a lob.

We also spotted the look backstage at recent New York Fashion Week shows from the likes of Alexander Wang, Bottega Venetta, and Adam Selman.

Let’s just say people have a lot of feelings about this grunge style.

Try not to laugh too much – after all, everybody’s been there.

Khloé Kardashian Can't Get This Controversial Hair Treatment While Pregnant

Image Source: Getty / Dia Dipasupil Over the past few months, Khloé Kardashian has ditched her signature sleek, straight strands in favor of voluminous waves – and there’s a very, very good reason for the switcharoo.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is pregnant with her boyfriend Tristan Thompson. Since she’s expecting, Khloé has decided to opt out of Brazilian blowouts, her go-to straightening treatment.

In a recent Snapchat, Khloé explained her decision. “I have been Brazilian Blowdrying my hair for years, because I want straight hair,” she said. “But now that I’m pregnant, I can’t do that.”

Why, exactly? It turns out that there is a very good reason. We reached out to Ty Holbrook , who handles treatments at NYC’s Serge Normant Salon , for more information on this controversial straightening method.

One of the main active ingredients in a Brazilian blowout is formaldehyde, a toxic chemical that can cause irritation of the skin, eyes, nose, and throat. The EPA warns that extreme exposure to formaldehyde can result in certain cancers , and its been linked to infertility and miscarriages in pregnant women. Ty told us that’s one reason he won’t conduct the treatment himself.

“If the stylist knows what they’re doing and doesn’t use too much product on the hair, then everything will be OK,” Ty said. “There’s usually not enough formaldehyde to hurt anyone [in the treatment], but I’m not taking anything chances.”

In fact, Ty said that when he has conducted the treatment in the past, he’s felt its effects on his body. “When I do [a Brazilian blowout], I can feel my nose and throat getting itchy.” Ty added that to remedy those symptoms, “sometimes you’ll see the stylist and the client wearing masks, but that’s unsettling to both them and other customers in the salon.”

Thankfully, there’s a more modern type of treatment that doesn’t require subjecting yourself to such harsh chemicals. Ty swears by MagicSleek Treatments , a process that straightens hair through the use of plant extract ingredients.

The main active ingredient is tannin oil, which has been used for centuries to waterproof leather and leave it soft and supple. “The rest of the oils used in MagicSleek are other plant extracts from the Amazon rainforest,” said Ty, who’s used this process to straighten the strands of clients like Sarah Jessica Parker and Bethenny Frankel.

Another bonus of MagicSleek is that unlike a Brazilian blowout, there’s no downtime for strands. “You can wash or color your hair on the same day you apply MagicSleek,” Ty said. “The only thing is, you can’t go in saltwater or chlorine for one week after application.”

Plus, MagicSleek results last for four to six months – that’s most of a pregnancy!

Everything You Need to Copy Rihanna's "Disco Diva" Curls From the Grammys

Is there such a thing as a bad hair day for Rihanna ? We think not. The Fenty Beauty founder attended the 2018 Grammys clad in her namesake makeup with her hair styled in fluffy curls. In fact, we loved Rih’s hair so much that we tapped her longtime hair stylist, Yusef Williams , to give us all the details on how to achieve the pillow-soft waves at home.

Yusef told POPSUGAR that though the Grammys is the biggest night in music, his award show prep with Rihanna didn’t begin months in advance. “People would think that we started the process months and months ago, but it really came together over the past few weeks,” he revealed. “We’ve done just about everything together, so sometimes we just stare at each other for an hour like ‘what should we do next?'”

For Rihanna’s Grammys look, Yusuf shared that the two followed a “whimsical blueprint” inspired by Studio 54, Diana Ross, and Donna Summers. “To achieve the look at home, you might want to use some extensions for drama. I used the ghd gold styler ($199, available Feb. 1) to create soft curls.” If your hair is naturally thick or curly, Yusef suggests using a paddle brush to blow-dry your strands. “Your hair doesn’t have to be superstraight. In fact, we kept a lot of texture in Rihanna’s hair because we didn’t want it to be too smooth.”

Once her disco-diva curls were set, he brushed them out and finished with Matrix Frizz Control Spray ($20). Right before Rihanna hit the stage, he spritzed on Matrix Style Fixer ($18) to make sure her curls stayed sexy during her hot dance number.

The rest was Grammys history.

If there’s anything we know about Chrissy Teigen, it’s that she does not hold back on Twitter. Whether she’s flaunting her shiny spray tan to her 9.6 million followers or opening up about hormonal acne , Chrissy is incredibly honest on social media, and it’s one of the million reasons we love her. Although she’s busy being pregnant with her second child and hanging out at the playground with 1-year-old Luna , Chrissy’s recent tweet praising her gray hair is empowering women all over the world to do the same.

“I have a skunk like streak of gray hair and I’m actually very into it. My Cruella dreams are coming true!” she wrote on Twitter. After Jessica Biel flaunted her gray roots at this year’s Golden Globes, we have a feeling we’re going to be seeing a lot more celebrities ditching the dye. Since tweeting about her streaks, thousands of people replied with photos of their own grays. All hail Cruella de Teigen!

40 Times Oprah Winfrey Proved She Is a Gosh Darn Beauty Icon

We’re positively screaming over the fact that television legend and beauty inspiration Oprah Winfrey made an appearance at the 2017 Emmy Awards. Often referred to as “The Most Influential Woman in the World,” Winfrey has inarguably been a style maven since her namesake daytime talk show debuted 31 years ago.

Her signature look often involves a few go-to products (she’s been rocking a bold lip like it’s her job since before many of us were born), but she’s also keen to switch things up. Case in point is her hair: she sometimes wears her natural curls, but she has also been seen repping a TV host blowout and straight bob with equal grace. No matter her hair or makeup, Oprah is always sure to wear a smile, which completes her gloriously inspirational red carpet looks.

Read on for 40 pictures of Oprah looking like #beautygoals. We promise it will make you happier than finding the keys to a free car under your seat.

Selena Gomez's Sexy Selfie Proves Why She's the Most-Followed Person on Instagram

If you spent a good five minutes starring at the latest Selena Gomez selfie to trend on Instagram, you weren’t alone. There’s a lot happening in the gorgeous photo – and we could not take our eyes off of the most-followed celebrity (and person!) on the social media platform.

Selena’s makeup artist Hung Vanngo shared the image above on June 4 with the caption: “Babe is in New York tonight.” In the image, we see the Hollywood It girl rocking a smoldering smoky eye and glossy nude lips created by Vanngo.

Her effortlessly chic beach waves were created by hairstylist Danielle Priano. The style – featuring loose waves and straight ends – reminds of this throwback Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen look from 2012. Though, the twins were wearing it for years before then:

Creating this look at home is pretty easy. If your hair is natural curly or wavy, let it air dry with a products like a cocktail of Ouai Curl Jelly ($26) and Sally Hershberger 24K Beach Glam Mineral Spray ($28) to give it a rope-y texture. Then use a flatiron to straighten just the bottom one to two inches of your hair, which relaxes the curls. If your hair is straight, then twist it in different directions alternating around your head with a 0.75-inch curling irons like the Beachwaver S.75 Curling Iron ($129). Leave the bottom one to two inches out of the curling iron to achieve the same effect. Finish with a texturing hairspray – our favorite is Shu Uemura Texture Wave ($39).

What makes this style even better is sleeping on it – or just having a fabulous Saturday night out. The added oils to your mane will make it look even messier and sexier.
