Mila Kunis Got Her Shortest Haircut Ever And We’re Obsessed

Ever since Mila Kunis was first introduced to us as Jackie on That 70s Show, the Ukrainian beauty has boasted envy-inducing long locks. That all changed when she stepped out this past June in the popular bob. Then in September, her hairstylist posted a photo of her on Instagram with her hair looking slightly longer and we almost loved it even more.

But today, that same stylist took to Instagram again to show her most stunning look yet: A ’60s-inspired asymmetrical bob that’s slightly shorter in the back and longer in the front. If it’s possible, we love this one the most.

BOOM, HAIRY SPONGES

Deep down, we all secretly long for that coveted hairstyle that stops traffic with a confident and strategic flick. Work it. But why stop there?

Let’s aim for one better and flaunt the hair that can act as an ecological warrior too. They’re called hair booms, and they’re being created to clean up oil spills around the world. That’s right, your hair can help protect the ocean.

Sustainable Salons Australia (SSA) is preparing a stockpile of these hairy sponges to send to the Great Barrier Reef, in case there’s an oil spill. Hopefully this day will never pass, but SSA member salons are collecting hair clippings for booms, just to be safe.

Twisted Desire is registered with SSA, take pride in the fact that your hair is being collected to protect our oceans.

Change of Season

During winter months the air is drier and your hair may lack the moisture it needs. You may find that washing your hair less frequently and switching to an extra-moisturising shampoo and conditioner. Increasing the frequency of a deep conditioner may also help alleviate dryness, delivering the moisture your hair craves.

In addition to changing the products you use, it’s also time to rethink hairstyles. Loose strands blowing around won’t just get tangled, the wind will also strip it of its natural oils. In order to prevent damage, you should tie your hair back. Pulling hair back will protect its color—which can fade from the wind and sun—and prevent split ends. Charlize Theron constantly wears her hair off her face and her color is amazing. You can also apply a moisturising hair oil to the ends and you’ll get a lengthy conditioning treatment.

This ultra light mask of Moroccanoil’s Restorative Hair Mask contains ingredients that will replenish moisture in all hair types and textures. It contains fatty acids, antioxidant vitamins A and E (to protect hair against free radical damage), argan oil, and smells like coconuts

EASY STEPS TO CHIC BEDHEAD

With its casual waves and sexy messiness, tousled bedhead hair looks chic, effortless, and low-maintenance.

But not all of us are genetically blessed with the perfect thick hair that allows us to roll out of bed with a perfectly mussed bedhead. Here are some tips on how to pull off bedhead.

1. Wash your hair before you go to bed. Time it so you can hit the pillow when your hair is about 90% air-dried.

2. While you’re waiting for it to dry, apply product. Run a mousse through your hair while it’s still damp; it’ll help smooth unruly strands and tame the frizz.

3. Then, smooth out with a detangling brush. If you skip this step, you risk waking up with a tangled bird’s nest.

EXTEND YOUR BLOWDRY

IN 3 STEPS

Everyone loves getting a blowdry.  Of course, blowdrys tend to devolve at a certain point – roots get oily, on the second-or-third-day hair starts to look dull. No worries, here are three foolproof steps for extending your blowdry!

1. Dry shampoo is a lifesaver, not only because it controls oil and buildup between shampoos, but because it gives hair body at the root (simply apply, flip hair over, and massage into your scalp), leaving hair fresh, clean, and lushly tousled.

2. Hair fragrance, it’s a sad fact that hair can carry the scent of whatever it’s exposed to. Nothing freshens an aging blowdry like our Evo shine spray called ‘Love Touch’. Not only does this lightweight, faintly-scented mist smell like watermelon and starburst lollies in a bottle, it also manages to fight frizz and strand static.

3. Satin pillowcase. After the second day, your blowout can look a bit blah and shine-free and when hairs rub up against the rough cotton fibers in your pillowcase, it can result in an ever duller-looking finish. Sleep on a satin or silk pillowcase, instead—the shiny surface helps hair retain its natural oils and look glossier than ever.
