Leave it to Nicole Richie to give us a new spin on the boho chic crown braid trend. The style star hosted an event over the weekend wearing her hair pulled back in a sleek chignon with a deep side part. But it was her hair accessory that caught our eye. She topped off her polished look with a twisted headband, proving that hair pieces can actually look chic. You can get a similar look with Lady Jayne Hair Extensions, Accessories, Plaited Headband ($14.99), which comes in a few shades to better match your hair colour. Will you try this hair trick?

Miley Cyrus, Is That You?

Miley Cyrus is mixing up her look once again! The singer covered up her edgy pixie cut with a wig at the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas event in LA on Saturday. The short blonde bob features mid-length bangs and stops short of her jaw line, making it look like she grew her hair out overnight. Miley shared her fresh look on Twitter, saying she was “bored” and playing with wigs, and she also shared a snap on Instagram, posing with a friend.


Miley’s signature pixie was on display on Friday when she got up close and personal with Santa Claus on stage at the at the KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball in LA. Her wig change-up isn’t too surprising, though, as unexpected makeovers have become the norm with Miley. Just last month, she bleached her eyebrows to match her platinum blonde ‘do, only to debut thick drawn brown eyebrows days later.

Whose Beauty Look Rocked the Jingle Ball?

Last night’s KIIS FM Jingle Ball 2013 brought some of the biggest names in music to LA’s Staples Center, and Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, and Ariana Grande all took to the stage to perform.
Last night’s KIIS FM Jingle Ball 2013 brought some of the biggest names in music to LA’s Staples Center, and Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, and Ariana Grande all took to the stage to perform. Decked out in festive attire, the songstresses brought out some equally eye-catching beauty looks, too. Selena opted for a surprisingly gothic look, donning the same blunt wig she wore for another concert in Texas. Her makeup consisted of bold black lipstick, which was only enhanced by a black, smoky eye. Miley performed in a sparkling Chanel outfit, which she complemented with her signature red lips and bold brow combo. Ariana had the sweetest look of all with her long hair flowing in soft waves and a neutral makeup palette that featured soft pink lips. They all brought their beauty A-game, but whose look did you like best?

Reese’s Red or J Lo’s Green: Which Is More Festive?

It was looking a little bit like Christmas at the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies Luncheon yesterday, but don’t go looking for a fir tree.
It was looking a little bit like Christmas at the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies Luncheon yesterday, but don’t go looking for a fir tree. Jennifer Lopez, Reese Witherspoon, and Molly Sims all showed their beautiful faces, wearing looks that were suspiciously festive. Jennifer lined her eyes in a subtly sparkling green colour, while Reese dabbed a crimson hue across her lips. Molly opted for a gilded smoky eye to bring this festive theme full circle. We could see ourselves wearing all three of these looks, but which was your favourite?

First Look: Nicole Trunfio for Russh

Nicole Trunfio is easily one of our hottest modelling exports, and it’s little wonder why. Her dark hair, olive skin and hazel-brown eyes work in conjunction with her stunning facial structure, to give a sexy, tough-girl look that never fails to wow us. This month, though, Russh magazine wanted to see a different Nicole — a softened version. “For our latest beauty story,” Russh tells POPSUGAR Australia, “we wanted to capture a softer, more mysterious side of Nicole Trunfio. Working to enhance her natural beauty and raw sensuality, our team created looks with soft hair and dark eyes. It was a pleasure working with such an experienced model with the personality to match.”

The magazine had the concept and photographer James Nelson had the skills to capture it — but it was Nicole who lent her air of grace and effortless beauty to make the shoot what it was. Click through to see all of the stunning images of Nicole in the December/January issue of Russh, out now with Catherine McNeil on the cover.

We’re Seeing Double: Elizabeth Banks and Reese Witherspoon

With Elizabeth Banks and Reese Witherspoon stepping out last night with similar blonde bobs and makeup looks, we were seeing double.
With Elizabeth Banks and Reese Witherspoon stepping out last night with similar blonde bobs and makeup looks, we were seeing double. Elizabeth attended the Legoland tree-lighting ceremony with a festive red lipstick and shimmering shadow, while her hair was styled with a slight wave. Reese also went for a crimson lip at the Children’s Defense Fund Beat the Odds Awards, but her shade was more brick than bright. Her newly shorn bob was blow-dried for a smooth, sleek look. These two could pass for twins, but who pulled off the look best?

We’ve Never Seen Kate Middleton’s Hair Like This Before

Although our heads explode every time Kate Middleton’s hair makes an appearance, she had a surprisingly different ‘do at the premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Kate actually swept her headline-making mane into a loose yet gorgeous ponytail. Instead of the sleek, slicked-back ponytails we tend to see on the red carpet, Kate’s was elegantly loose and accented with a black velvet ribbon. Is this a sign that Kate is pushing the envelope with her red carpet styles? We’re not sure, but it’s definitely not stopping us from looking at her royal ponytail from all angles.
