In case you didn't keep up with Rihanna's 60-picture birthday extravaganza on Instagram, I suggest you do so right now. I mean, why would you deprive yourself? In between wearing entirely one color on the slopes and off, and sometimes even matching her lipstick to her outfit, Rih needed to make sure her hair looked good. Her new chin-length bob needs to be Mia Wallace-sleek at all times, and the best way to achieve that after frolicking in snow and hot tubs? Straightening her hair in the middle of her birthday celebration. Duh.

@badgalriri kept her Instagram followers up to date on the process, beginning with a photo of her in a chair, surrounded by balloons, straightener in hand. Rihanna, obviously, does not do her hair like most women.

Britney's new and newer 'dos!

Just when we were starting to get used to Britney Spears' prodigal return to her follicular roots, it looks like Brunette-ney up and changed her hair color yet again, y'all—which makes her new hue the third tint she's tried out this year. (Cue "Oops...I Did It Again" and/or "My Prerogative.") Spears started the year off as a blonde, toyed around with chestnut brown for the better part of February, and, according to pap pictures and fan photos from a meet-and-greet on Wednesday, is currently rocking a rich, red hue.

Lorde

Rihanna may be the leading advocate for "red carpet goth,” but her peer Lorde is hot on her heels, owning it all awards season long. Remember her dip-dyed fingers at the Grammys? Well, Lorde's look was even darker today at the Brit Awards where she wore a vampy broken disco ball of a floor-length Tom Ford gown. Ella took the black sparkly creation up one notch on the goth scale with the addition of the trusty brick-soled platform boots she’s stepped out wearing many times before and her signature deep purple lipstick. With the exception of her pout, her beauty look was all about her hair—much like her V cover and, you know, always.

Much to the dismay of naysayers/trend forecasters everywhere, nail art ain't goin' nowhere, y'all. In fact, I'm happy to report that it's alive and well and majorly #THRIVING on the Fall 2014 runways at New York Fashion Week. Nail artists pulled out all the stops this season with a brand new class of innovative designs, patterns, textures, and shapes. If you're still struggling to paint both hands without going through an entire bag of cotton balls and polish remover (no shade), you might want to take some notes. Unless you're into the finger-dipped trend, in which case, carry on. Check out our picks for the most creative nail art designs from New York Fashion Week after the jump!

Here we have a small sampling of the nail art The Blonds sent down the runway for their Fall 2014 show. Welp, that'll do it, ladies and gentlemen. I think we can all go home now. They won nails. Congrats, CND. I don't even know how to describe half of these, because they are SO insanely detailed. Also because there are SO many. Like, there's at least fifteen in plain view. And that's not even counting those pink pointy suckers (which would no doubt get flagged as weapons by the T.S.A.). Just when we thought it couldn't get more diverse than last season's show, The Blonds went and outdid themselves. Literally.

Cushnie et Ochs called in their BFF manicurist, Pattie Yankee, for this stiletto-tipped, iridescent, oil-slick paint job that created a holographic illusion in certain kinds of light. HOLOGRAPHS, people. On fingernails. What's next? A life-size projection of a shirtless 2Pac performing the show's soundtrack? (Hey, it could happen.)

We've already discussed beauty trends from New York Fashion Week, so now we need to discuss the other major player on runways that isn't, y'know, clothing: HAIR! After looking at basically every Fashion Week picture that exists, we decided the number one trend that ruled the runways, hair-wise, was braids. There were braids everywhere. Some people may think braids are reserved for warmer seasons like spring or summer, but those people would be wrong. Fall/Winter braids are obviously becoming a ~thing~, so you better make sure your fingers are nimble come September. Check out braids from NYFW below!

BRAIDED BANGS

Braided bangs, a somewhat underused plait in the braid world of which I'm queen, showed up twice on runways. The first was at Creatures of the Wind, where the braid practically covered the model's entire forehead, and the second was at Nanette Lepore where it was thinner and sleeker. You don't need actual bangs to get yourself some braided bangs—just comb some of your hair forward and voilà.

Katy Perry

If you can stop staring at possibly the world's cutest dog and direct your attention, like, two inches to the right, you may notice that Katy Perry's hair stops above her chin. Um, hi, Katy, it's us, your best friends, DID YOU GET A HAIRCUT?

In the preview for the "Dark Horse" video, which was released yesterday, Katy has a bob with bangs, but we just assumed it was a wig. We know Katy loves wigs (she even celebrates her successes with them), which is why we're not convinced the hair above is the stuff that grows out of her head. At the same time, short hair has been making waves again recently (see: Taylor Swift), and Katy hasn't had short hair since her colorful bob, so maybe she was ready for an IRL change.

We've already been operating under the assumption that Lupita Nyong'o is, in a word, flawless. Over the last several months, she's appeared on countless magazine covers, scored a modeling gig with Miu Miu, and stays steady killin' it both off and on the red carpet. (Oh yeah. She's also a really great actress, but, you know, details.) Have you ever actually seen her up close though? Like, close enough to spot even the faintest sign of a blemish? No? OK, well, technically, neither have we. But Glamour did when they tapped Lupita to show off spring's hottest lip colors—and (SHOCKER), she's still flawless.

Katy Perry

Y'all ready for this?

Are you ready for a new Katy Perry video? Saddle up, y'all, cause "Dark Horse" is coming our way. The theme-loving Katy P that we know and love is back in full force, and this time she's coming to us from Memphis, Egypt. The video introduces Katy Patra, a magical queen, who wears a grill made out of straight-up rhinestones. Now, Katy is no stranger to rhinestone-encrusted grills, but this one leaves her mouth fully agape. (To be fair, this is an ancient artifact, so the craft of grill-making was perhaps not fully developed when she had it commissioned.)

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
