Why Light Therapy is the Answer to Perfect Skin

The first 30 seconds of session one were a bit of a shock.
The first 30 seconds of session one were a bit of a shock. The warm, sunset light is very bright, so much so that the therapist gently tapped my shoulder and told me to “get ready for the light”. I was wearing small goggles to protect my eyes, but because the light was so intense initially, my instincts kicked-in and I squeezed them shut. But in another moment when my body surprised me with what it can tolerate, I soon fell asleep. Continue reading after the break.

Reese Witherspoon Finally Unveils Her New Short Cut

Reese Witherspoon isn’t afraid of a hair change, having gone from blonde to brunette for a role earlier this year.
Reese Witherspoon isn’t afraid of a hair change, having gone from blonde to brunette for a role earlier this year. And now the actress has stepped out with a shorter look. Reese has been teasing us with photos of the cut on her WhoSay account, but this weekend was the first time we got a clearer glimpse of her shorter strands. She was spotted with a shoulder-length lob over the weekend, and her colour looked just a touch lighter than her most recent appearances. The cut isn’t a drastic change, but it still creates a new look for Reese. Are you a fan?

Sienna Miller Brings Back Her Pink Hair

We had to do a double take when we spotted Sienna Miller’s hair on the red carpet at the British Fashion Awards.
We had to do a double take when we spotted Sienna Miller‘s hair on the red carpet at the British Fashion Awards. Has the actress dyed her hair a subtle shade of pink? It seems so, but it Sienna chose an interesting part of her hair to highlight. Instead of all-over colour or an ombré effect, Sienna dyed only the front midsection of her hair with a subtle rose gold hue. We’ve seen this look on her before, though. Back in 2011, Sienna stepped out sporting pink hair during a trip to Ibiza with Tom Sturridge. Clearly she knows what she likes, but are you a fan of her pink hair?

From the archives – Best Beauty at the 2013 ARIA Awards! Jessica Mauboy, Alicia Keys & More

And another walk down memory lane. Let’s revisit the one night when our favourite celebrities can let their hair down and add a little edge to their look, but the 2013 ARIA Awards turned out to be all about sleek sophistication.
Best Beauty at the 2013 ARIA Awards! Jessica Mauboy, Alicia Keys & More
It’s one night when our favourite celebrities can let their hair down and add a little edge to their look, but the 2013 ARIA Awards turned out to be all about sleek sophistication. Jessica Gomes hit the black carpet in a slick Dion Lee dress that matched her sleek hair and classic makeup, while Alicia Keys had her hair styled up in what might be the classiest all-over quiff we’ve ever seen. Even Lorde, who’s famous for her incredible curly hair, opted for a pared-back look, slicking her locks right down and sealing the deal with some darkly-painted lips. And Jessica Mauboy? She made a strong case for low-slung ponytails that have just the right amount of casual-cool to them. Click through now to see the most beautiful looks from the 2013 ARIA Awards!
