Ahhhh, the beauty of the internet. While we normally wouldn't be able to weigh in on Jared Leto's hair choices, the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman took to Instagram last night to ask fans (and us, duh) what his next 'do should be. He posted a pic of himself sporting his gorge blonde-tipped tresses, a thick beard and aviator sunglasses with the caption, "Should I cut off this hippy hair?" Well, Jared, we are SO glad you asked. Now, as much as we love his beachy waves in the pic above, let's be real for a hot sec--he often throws those strands back into a baby bun, which isn't necessarily the best look he's ever sported. I mean, sure, it's better than the Dragon Ball Z 'do he once had or spiky mullet he's donned before, but we have to admit, if you're gonna wear it long, let it ALL hang out.

Mood rings might be stashed away with your Lisa Frank trapper keepers from middle school, but now there's a new color-changing product on the market....and this time, nobody has to know when you're feeling angsty. Arriving along with the heat of summer, Orly's rolled out a brand-new nail polish coat that morphs hues as your body temps fluctuate. The beauty company's new Shade Shifter coats might go on dark, but they react with the Orly Gel FX lacquers to become translucent as you get hotter. In other words, your base color becomes revealed when you step outside or move away from the A.C., slowly transitioning from dark to clear (even becoming two-toned and tie dye along the way!). Genius, right?! And, like all gel polishes, they last FOREVER— so you'll have plenty of time to experiment all summer long. Is this the manicure of the future? See how it works in the video below, and let us know if you're willing to give this trend a high five.
One Direction's fragrance, Our Moment.

Is it just us, or have the boys of One Direction been killing it in the beauty department as of late? I mean, just last month, Zayn Malik was caught sporting nail art, the band announced their first collection of nail polish, and today, the boys revealed their debut perfume! AHHHHH. The fragrance, called "Our Moment," has been in development for nearly a year (!!!) comes in a pale pink bottle complete with a bedazzled crown and a touch of tulle. The box features Niall, Zayn, Louis, Liam, and Harry's gorge lil' faces alongside a floral design to reflect the feminine scent.
Listen up, kiddos. There's something no one tells you when you start dating someone—you WILL morph into this person someday. When any two people are together long enough, they start to take on similar traits. Whether its an annoying snort-laugh or affinity for wearing sweatpants 24/7, eventually something's gonna give, but, look, it doesn't have to be such a bad thing. See: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. I mean, OK, yes they are two of the best looking people in the world blah blah blah, but lately, they can't seem to stop wanting to look like total twinsies—especially when it comes to their hair. The adorable twosome have been promoting World War Z in Europe, and every time they turn up to a premiere, we SWEAR they are sporting the same 'do. Don't believe us? Check out our evidence below.

In Paris yesterday, the cute couple arrived wearing their similarly-colored strands in a no-fuss low ponytail complete with—get this—matching all-black suit and shirts. It also doesn't help that they have basically the EXACT same shiny hair texture and volume.

Long before "The Karlie," before Rihanna's cut, and even before Miley Cyrus' epic chop, Emma Watson proved her own beauty chameleon steez back in 2008 when she lopped off her Hermione locks in favor of a closed-cropped pixie. Although the actress may have started the process of growing it back—and even sports long hair with fringe in The Bling Ring!—she's still into switching things up, as she proved last night at the premiere of This Is The End. The star, who makes a cameo in the apocolyptic comedy, nailed her premiere look per usual in a Roland Mouret bustier and 3.1 Phillip Lim skinny trousers. But fashion business aside, right now we've GOT to talk about her faux bob. With a deep side part, serious shine, and an effortless curl underneath, Emma's chin-length (temporary) new look just might be the most practical style ever for the summer, and here's why.
OMG y'all. Last night, our boyfriend Joe Jonas shaved his head. Like, there's no easy way to say it—his adorable raven locks are totally, irreversibly gone. Donezo. Finished. Extinct. Gone bye-bye. Basically, we were perusing our Instagram feed last night and AUDIBLY gasped when we stumbled upon an adorable play-by-play pic of him shaving off his luscious strands. His caption simply read, "Oops," but judging by how he took a "before" snap, we're guessing this was no mistake. In the first pic, he's sporting his standard shaggy-on-top-short-on-the-side steez, and it looks like his hair stylist is giving him a quick side trim until... it goes totally AWOL.
Lady Gaga at her Fame fragrance launch in New York on Sept. 14.

Listen, we love nail art a lot (maybe too much even), but sometimes even we get blindsided by people's utmost dedication to the mini masterpieces. This past Friday, we were tipped off (heh) to an auction where you could bid on nail art previously worn by Lady Gaga. We saw a pic that featured a killer black and gold stiletto-tipped nail hand painted by Aya Fukuda (a NYC-based nail artist who has been behind some of Gaga's most famous tips) which Mother Monster wore at a Fame fragrance launch and Born This Way Dublin performance last fall. In theory, this is TOTALLY AWESOME. Gags always has the most decked-out sets created by world-renowned nail artists, but when we actually read the description of the bid, we were, well, a wee bit disappointed.
Justin Bieber and his new knight tattoo.

It's getting to the point where it feels like Justin Bieber is getting a new tattoo every other week. That's not true, of course; it's more like every other month, but STILL, being major commitment-phobes, we're surprised and excited every time Biebs turns up with yet another new piece of permanent ink. Looks like Justin's continuing to fill up that left forearm (presumably working toward a full-blown sleeve) with his newest addition: a nearly full-body portrait of some sort of medieval knight character.

Good moooorning! We have some stellar news to get your day started off right: Taylor Swift debuted her third (!!!) fragrance today AND released a gorge campaign along with it. The new scent, appropriately called Taylor by Taylor Swift, follows in the footsteps of her perfumes Wonderstruck and Wonderstruck Enchanted. While her former scents definitely exuded a super glam, princess vibe (I mean, it's impossible for us to forget that IN. SANE. light pink Christian Siriano gown from her first campaign), Taylor told People StyleWatch she's going for something a little different this time around. "My first two fragrances were more about fairytales, but this fragrance is more about my own style, so I wanted the name to be more personal."
