Another week, another celebrity dye job. The actress shared a snap of her new cherry locks on Instagram, sharing her pride at her own handiwork. The twist?

Jojo Siwa ditches her signature style for her birthday

The Dance Moms alumni is renowned for her tight (tight) pony and bow combo, complete with layers and layers of glitter. However, lately she’s been using TikTok to give us a glimpse into her look behind the character—turns out, she has waves. Better yet? It’s a look.

Chrissy Teigen is a child hairstylist now

Bella Thorne is the embodiment of TikTok with her new hairdo

Jeffree Star responds to the backlash on his new eyeshadow palette

Makeup guru and personality Jeffree Star has been in the hot seat lately (when is he ever not?) in the beauty community. When Star took to YouTube to reveal his latest palette, Cremated, fans were understandably iffed by the ill-themed palette amidst a global pandemic with many lives being lost every day around the world.

On Wednesday (May 21), Jeffree Star made a video to address the criticism over the palette, explaining that a palette would take anywhere from months to a year to create a product and that he had actually trademarked the name “Cremated” back in September 2019. He had initially planned to drop the palette over a month ago but delayed it due to the pandemic.

However, Star felt like with his current year booked with upcoming products in line such as a future summer collection, the palette would not be able to fit anywhere in his schedule for this year if it was to be delayed any further. “I would have had to move Cremated to later in the fall of 2021 and I never want to give my customers a bad experience; I never want to sell expired product,” Star explained. He does mention that he never wants to discredit anyone’s feelings as people can feel however they want about anything but reinstates that him and his brand always “come from a good place”.
