Selena Gomez is launching her own beauty brand
The singer joins a growing list of A-listers who are dabbling with beauty, including Lady Gaga, Victoria Beckham, Rihanna and more.

Camila Cabello shows off her new hair transformation
The star joins the bob trend-wagon with an ultra-cute wavy 'do on Instagram. Sadly, it's just for a music video and, therefore, probably just a wig, but there's no denying that it's a major change of pace from her usual mermaid locks. Either way, the singer is really serving a lewk.
Jurnee Smolett-Bell insists on a black hairstylist for her Birds of Prey character
In a live interview with Build, the American actress explains why it was (and still is) important to have a woman of colour to create the look for Black Canary, her Birds of Prey character, and expresses the gratitude she has for the producers on the film for making it happen. "It wasn’t something that they were aware of—the importance of black women’s hair and having a woman of colour do it," said Smollett-Bell. "But they were open and they were able to listen, and when I explained it to them, they said, 'Absolutely, we'll bring her [hairstylist Nikki Nelms] in.'"

Can we agree that age has got nothing on this icon?

Try Demi Lovato's fun twist to last summer's trendy jelly nails—"glass" nails made of transparent nail tips with a hint of iridescence for a dash of whimsy to the look. Her extensions are reportedly made of "soft gel" for anyone who's into this nail art, and can be decked with other nail colours and embellishments, or left on its own for a glass effect.
Hailey Bieber goes to a skin witch for perfect skin
Don't think anyone saw this one coming, but a 'Skin Witch' isn't as scary as it seems—it's just the identity holistic aesthetician Emma Goodwin goes by. Bieber shared an Instagram Story which showed her receiving the Neurotris Lifting Facial from Goodwin, a treatment that reportedly strengthens and tones the facial muscles.
