The celeb besties who are starting to look the same

  • Post a comment

We knew that singing sensation Taylor Swift and Victoria’s Secret babe Karlie Kloss are best buds. We’ve seen them heading to the gym together, taking selfies together, getting ready for events together, and even going away on vacation together.

And now it seems like all their quality bestie time is taking its toll, with the two starting to look more and more alike.

Taylor just released her video for her brand spankin’ new song 'Shake It Off' and we couldn’t help but notice that Tay Tay’s beauty looks were eerily reminiscent of her best bud’s.

Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

We guess if you’re going to steal your friend’s style, a wavy and shaggy lob, a side-fringe and a bold red pout is certainly the way to go.

What do you think of Taylor and Karlie’s looks? Do you think it’s a style worth stealing?

I think they both look incredibly pretty. I doubt it would matter what style they followed. They are very pretty young women. Why not copy each other.

Its actually amazing how similar they look with the different make-up. My hair colour and skin tone is totally different to the girls so I doubt whether I could pull off the look.

“Before you look pretty first you have to look f*****g weird”

  • Post a comment

Mindy Kaling – star of The Mindy Project, author of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns), and all-round funny women – took to Instagram to prove what we all, as women, already know: that it ain’t easy being pretty.

The actress posted a pic of herself with pre-contour blending and her hair in curlers, captioning it: “Before you look pretty first you have to look f*****g weird”.

Word, Mindy.

And she’s not the only celeb who isn't afraid to show the world that getting red-carpet ready (or for us non-celebs, getting presentable-for-the-world ready) takes time, effort and a short period of looking like a downright weirdo.

Check it out:

Have you ever posted a pic of yourself mid-getting ready? Do you agree that it’s kinda awesome of these celebs to show the world that it takes a lot of effort to look flawless?

Haha! No, I have never posted that type of pic because, honestly - who cares? I'm a woman. I know what it's like. :)

I'm so glad for her honesty! Yay for Mindy! We all know contouring is a girl's best friend, however to see A-listers mid process both humanises them and allows us to become stars (if for a day).

How to use Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy

By now you may have heard about the revolutionary polishes from Revlon that will give your nails a super-shiny gel-like finish without you having to sit with your hands under a lamp for 30-60 seconds at a time.

And some of you may think it’s crazy – preposterous even – that such a wondrous thing exists. Surely only a gel manicure can give your nails that glossy, mirror-like finish?

Nope, not true. Just watch the video above to find out exactly how to use the Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Nail Enamel and Diamond Top Coat™ to achieve gel-like results, and in only two steps!

Side note: you’ll also see how incredibly easy it is to remove the colour from your nails!

I haven't tried this product yet, but gel polish without the lamp does sound interesting.

This stuff is freaking awesome! I purchased 'Royal Flush', a nice bright fuchsia colour. I applied it to my toes THREE weeks ago, and it's still looking as fresh and shiny as the day I applied it. I am going to remove it and reapply over the next day or so, but that's only cos you can see the bare base of my nail where it's grown. I'm super impressed, and fully intend to buy more colours.

Spring hair trends you need to know about

  • Post a comment

The coolest hair colours for Spring are in and let me tell you ladies: they’re bold.

Deep red, mossy green, pastel pink and icy blue – these are just a few of the vivid shades that have the bh office in a spin.

Encapsulating the vibrant ‘Culture Clash’ theme at the recent Aveda Colour Harmony Awards, the tribal-inspired hairstyles we’re loving were amplified with bold braids, big quiffs and a whole lotta’ volume – not to mention dramatic make-up and jewellery.

Now if you’re anything like me, you’ll find these Avant Garde hair looks totally inspiring – but a little too bold for everyday. Thankfully, you can take away some more wearable trends from the awards, including a few must-have hair colours for the new season; like Icelandic blonde, for light-haired girls looking to inject their locks with a cool hue and Celtic red, (see above image), for brunettes, or red-heads who want to add a rich intensity to their tresses).

Just be aware that if you’re going to colour your hair, you’ll need to step up your hair care regime to prevent any damage to your locks. A hydrating mask such as bhave deep intense conditioning mask or leave-in treatment such as Aveda Colour Conserve Daily Colour Protect are great for helping to prevent colour fade, while also infusing your hair with the nourishment it needs.  For super sleek coloured locks, a shine-enhancing product like Toni&Guy Glamour Moisturising Shine is also a good investment – especially if you’re a fan of heat styling.

Prefer to keep your natural hair colour? You can still take some style inspiration from the Harmony Awards, with Aveda experts predicting braids to be huge in the coming months. I have to say I’m not surprised, with Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo, mega style setter Diane Kruger and singer Lily Allen all rocking braided ‘dos recently. Check out bh’s Debbies’ cheat’s guide to the perfect fishtail braid video to learn how to get a similar braid look to Colour Harmony Award finalist Julia Cockman’s, above.

Alternatively, you can add just a splash of colour to your hair using hair extensions like Lady Jayne Hair Extensions Highlights 30cm (which can be woven through a braid for two trends in one) or Fudge URBAN Hair Chalk, which washes out when you shampoo your hair.

For those who’re mad about the bolder hair colours, expert judges Michael Brown, Jenny Burns, Christopher Chu and Ian Michael Black awarded prizes to hair colourists in the following categories:

Colour Harmony Award:
Winner: Nathan Marsh – Scalpt Hair (NT)
Runner-up: Julia Cockman – Pierrots Hair Studios (WA)

Winner: Samantha Higgins – Rhodes Hair & Spa (VIC)
Runner-up: Jade Lee – Zucci Hairdressing (VIC)

New Talent:
Winner: Scott Ferrier – Element Aveda Lifestyle Salon (WA)
Runner-up: Annmarie Newman – Pierrots Hair Studios (WA)

We know which hair salons we’ll be hitting up for our next colour sesh!

The mohawk braids?! Yeah, I'd do that. It's so Raja Gemini. I'm obsessed with Raja. She (he) is just fabulous.

I am not really into any of these styles, I don't mind the mo-hawk braids.
