Beauty buzz: Armie Hammer is apparently Joe Exotic now, Hilary Duff swaps her blonde locks for a blue look

This week in DIY hairstyling

Armie Hammer’s method acting goes too far as he turns himself into Tiger King‘s Joe Exotic

The Call Me By Your Name heartthrob had jaws dropping last week as he revealed his new *signature* look. The handlebar moustache and DIY fringed crop tops were only the beginning—the actor has just revealed his full transformation into Tiger King’s Joe Exotic, complete with the long-on-top/shaved sides haircut. Is it weird that we’re into it?

Creator of “The Rachel” shows you how to cut your own hair (properly)

Chris McMillan is a lot of things; he’s an innovator, he’s a laugh, but— most importantly—he’s Jennifer Aniston’s hair stylist. He called into The Ellen Degeneres Show and imparted some of his DIY hair wisdom on us, armed with nothing but a wig and some kitchen scissors. In the 10 minute video, he gave us the lowdown on how to cut your own bangs while you’re in lockdown and honestly? We’re taking notes.

Riverdale’s Madelaine Petsch shares her stay-home hairstyles

The Riverdale actress shared a video on her YouTube channel detailing some of her morning hair routines. The first is loose waves (achieved with a hair straightener), followed by half-up and half-down waves (à la Cheryl Blossom), a claw-clip bun, a straight low ponytail and, finally, a sleek high ponytail. Each look is super easy to recreate and perfect for both staying home and every day—once this MCO is over.

This week in DIY dye jobs

Dua Lipa goes pink (with Anwar Hadid’s help)

The singer has ditched the ‘90s highlights for candy floss chunks, and her boyfriend Anwar Hadid was there to lend a helping hand through the process. The ‘experiment’ has come about just after she debuted her ‘bleach breakage bangs’, and the result? It’s a look—we stan.

Hilary Duff trades blonde for blue

The Lizzie McGuire star hit us with a brand new ‘do on her Instagram, looking shocked at the success of her own efforts. If we had to be honest, it looks pretty evenly-coloured and perfect from the photo that we genuinely had to check it wasn’t a wig—and it turns out it’s not! Duff is just a natural when it comes to hair, it would seem.

This week in bare-faced selfies

The new face of Dove is the best yet

The latest addition to Dove’s Real Beauty campaign is “Courage Is Beautiful”, and it’s the most poignant one yet. Amid the fight against COVID-19, healthcare workers are on the front lines, risking their lives for our sakes and coming out with the marks to prove it (from their extensive use of protective equipment). The 30-second ad features a slideshow of US-based medical workers at the end of their shifts, illustrating how taxing the job can be. In addition to this, Alessandro Manfredi, the executive vice president of the brand, states that Dove is planning to release more videos featuring workers from other countries.

Halsey is the latest celebrity to go bare faced

The Without You singer let her natural skin show through—freckles bared and brows looking strong. She’s the latest celeb to hop on the no-makeup selfie trend, with others including the likes of Katy Perry and Lizzo.
