Katy Perry and Jiff, chillin'.

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.
Lupita Nyong'o wears Maybelline New York Sensational Vivids in Brazen Berry in 'Glamour.'
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.
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.)
"Short hair, don't care. (!!!)" - Taylor Swift

Last night, Taylor Swift got her hair cut, and judging from her Instagram, it was an EVENT. It seems like just yesterday Taylor was flipping her hair every which way during her dramatic Grammy performance. Now that image is nothing more than a distant memory because Swift is reinvigorating THE haircut of 2013: The Chop, also known as The Karlie. In the midst of her international Red Tour, T. Swizzle took a moment Tuesday evening to show off her new, chin-length 'do on Instagram. "London, I could never thank you enough. See you next time! PS: short hair, don't care. (!!!)," she captioned the photo (of a photo?), which also features one of her best friends (a pool that just keeps growing and growing), Ellie Goulding.
Lydia on 'Teen Wolf.'
If you're still weeping/shaking/holding loved ones close after last night's Teen Wolf, join the club. Poor Stiles! Poor Sheriff Stilinski! Poor Scott, Allison, Lydia, and Isaac, who had to go to school after no sleep! Since I'm not entirely equipped to discuss supernatural beings, this post will focus on something I am capable of talking about: hair.
You may have noticed that Lydia was mysteriously absent in last week's episode—well, I think I know where she was was: watching hair tutorials on YouTube. Her hair game was SO on-point last night. Her first look was an ~updated~ ponytail, which looked straightforward from the front, but then, she turned around and—BAM—it's an entirely different story. The ponytail hangs to the side and is wrapped around itself. Sure, it's messy, but in a chic way. If my hair looked like that one day in my life, I'd be happy. And take a lot of pictures.
It's Brunette-ney, b****! (Heh.) Over the weekend, Britney Spears shared a photo of herself that, at first glance, appeared to be some new promo for her Fantasy Remix perfume collection. "Spice up Valentine’s Day by getting ‘Naughty & Nice’ ((pun intended)) ," Spears tweeted while posing backstage at her Las Vegas vanity. But wait—that's not the same dark fringed wig she wore in the ads. In fact, we're pretty sure that's not a wig at all. And this isn't even an (official) ad. Could it be?! Britney's gone back to brunette, y'all!
Lorde at the Grammys and models from Creatures of Comfort and Adam Selman's NYFW runway shows.

When Lorde hit the stage at this year's Grammy Awards, instead of grabbing our attention with a glittery thong or an elaborate set, the 17-year-old New Zealand export appealed to our digital tastes with her dark, dripping, dip-dyed finger art. We'd spotted similar styles on Michele Lamy, the eclectic wife, muse, and creative mind behind Rick Owens, and at Mara Hoffman's F/W 2011 presentation, but now it seems like this alternative form of nail art is turning into a full-blown trend.
It's only the second day of New York Fashion Week, but we've already caught painted fingers on the runways of designers like Creatures of Comfort and Adam Selman. CofC mirrored Lorde's Grammy nails by bronzing their models' fingers from tip to joint. Selman went with a cleaner, more graphic style, adding tattooed black bands on all five fingers, like a string of permanent midi-rings. But, lest you be deceived (and as is usually the case with almost any trend), in fashion, everything old is new again—and finger art is no exception.
Rihanna is often heralded as the queen of transformations, but Nicki Minaj doesn’t get nearly enough credit. Just look how flawless she looks on her recent Instagram spree with her natural hair, straightened and pulled into a tight ponytail, then subsequently into an elegant tri-bun—pretty sure she just coined that last 'do. (Though, Katy Perry's Grammys look comes pretty close.)
Rita Ora for Rimmel.

Hey, #RITABOTS! Consider your uniform (almost) complete. Yesterday, Rita Ora's new Material Girl campaign dropped, providing us with some graphic-print goodness for our spring wardrobe. Today, Ora decided to give us a sneak peek of her upcoming Rimmel London campaign, which pretty much gives us the icing on our sartorial cake (i.e. lipstick).
With her platinum bob tussled into chunky waves, Ora flashes a perfect pout in a deep crimson color that better be included in her upcoming collection for the British beauty brand. We got a brief glimpse of the line back in October, when Rita shared some BTS snaps from her shoot and a quick look at the chubby lipstick "crayons" she created for her debut makeup collaboration.
