We're Calling It: Banana Buns Are the New Topknots

  We're Calling It: Banana Buns Are the New Topknots Relax, topknots aren’t going anywhere, but if you’re looking for an update (that requires no more time or skill), the banana bun is your new best friend. Named for its slightly oblong shape, this French trend has been popping up on our Instagram feeds…and into our lives (where we predict they will stay forever). Here’s how to make it work for you. Step 1: Start With Slightly Dirty Hair Don’t you love when that’s a requirement for a hairstyle? (Or, if you want to try it now, spray on some dry shampoo to add texture.) Ok, now grab a hair elastic and some hairpins. Step 2: Tie and Twist It Into Place Divide your hair into three even sections. Tie back the middle piece into a low, loose ponytail. Next, wrap the section your right over the top of the middle pony and twist the two together. Grab the remaining section and tuck it under the other two. Step 3: Start Pinning Using a few U-shaped pins, secure everything into place. Depending on the length of your hair and the look you’re going for, you can leave the pony as is or pin it up. And if that’s still a tad too complicated for your taste, just throw your hair into a twist and pin random sections into place so that it resembles, well, a banana. (Note: It doesn’t need to be an exact replica of the fruit. Just make sure it’s more cylindrical than your typical bun.) Ok, now the final part: Pull a few face-framing pieces out and let gravity do its thing.

Anyone who’s ever studied the back of their shampoo already knows what every bottle says: “This product works best with insert same-brand conditioning product here.”

And if you’ve ever wondered if it’s a serious suggestion—that somehow the ingredients in one brand of shampoo could have a catastrophic reaction with the ingredients in a different brand’s conditioner—most stylists say ‘no.’

“[Brands] sell matching products because, well, they want to sell more product. By recommending that they work well together, they’re able to sell an entire line. A lot of it is marketing,” Susan Raffy, a cosmetic chemist and president of Susan Raffy Consulting, told Refinery 29. “The only way that brands could substantiate claims [that their products work better together] is if they tested their formulas against other brands. That’s expensive. It rarely happens.”

I Did My Grandmother's Beauty Routine for a Week–and Here's What Happened

  I Did My Grandmother's Beauty Routine for a Week–and Here's What Happened I'll never forget how my paternal grandmother smelled like yellow Dial soap, or how she always (even up into her 80s) wore bright blue eyeshadow to bring out her eyes, and, perhaps most miraculously of all, how she had a perfectly coifed perm at all times. But when it comes to beauty memories of my mom's mom? I come up blank. I don't have any memories of watching my maternal grandmother apply red lipstick at a vanity, nor do I remember smelling a whiff of Chanel No. 5 after she hugged me. Sh e passed away when I was five--a time when I was perfectly content to run around with tangled hair--meaning that we never got around to going over her beauty routine.

Saryn: <p>Saryn, 38, has worn her hair long for most of her life, letting it reach her waist multiple times throughout childhood and adulthood.

Do you currently color your hair? Nope. I'm always curious to try color/highlights, but then I think my hair is really healthy right now and why mess with a good thing?

Do you get regular trims? Not as regularly as I should. Probably three times a year, but my hairstylist always tells me I should come four times to keep it healthiest.

What's your typical haircare routine? I wash my hair two or three times a week with Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo and follow with ESPA Nourishing Conditioner; maybe a conditioning mask on Sunday afternoon/evening after a workout. I'll let it air dry for a while, but never go to bed with it wet, so I'll run an argan oil serum or Arrojo Frizz Control cream through it and blow-dry it a bit before I go to sleep. On Monday mornings, I use a heat-protective spray and curl it with a curling iron and run my hands through the curls for a softer effect. I then spray it with BioSilk Silk Therapy, which I've been using since college--it's my favorite product of all time! I'll touch it up with a curling or flat iron for the next couple of mornings, using the heat-protective spray each time. On Thursdays, I wash my hair again and the cycle repeats itself.

What advice would you give to someone trying to grow her hair long? Put serum on the ends and length of your, but try to keep product off your scalp as much as possible. And definitely be careful with any kind of heating tools. I've singed my hair with irons before, and sometimes smell it "burning" even from the blow dryer. I have a ton of hair so I haven't had any major disasters, but I know fried tresses don't grow very well.

What These 8 Women Did to Make Their Hair Grow Long and Gorgeous

In fact, most stylists recommend choosing a shampoo that addresses your hair’s needs as they are from the scalp to mid-length and a conditioner that suits it from mid-length to your ends. That means if you’ve got flat hair with dry ends, choose a volumizing shampoo and a hydrating conditioner.

So what’s the outlier to this rule? Hair you’re treating for dandruff or itchiness. One Proctor and Gamble study found that pyrithione zinc, the active ingredient in Head & Shoulders cleanser, is decreased by 60 percent if users don’t follow up with the brand’s matching conditioner.  This is how to find the best shampoo for your hair type.

Moral of the story: Mix away, as long as you’re not treating your scalp for dandruff.

Here’s why you should use conditioner before shampoo

  Here’s why you should use conditioner before shampoo Washing your hair is part of your normal beauty routine—and it’s something most of us do almost every day. Sure, once in…Shampoo cleanses hair, removing dirt and oil, while conditioner smoothes and detangles it. It’s a two-step process that’s been this way forever. Of course, the amount one uses of each varies depending on hair texture. If you have fine hair, you probably use less conditioner (or none at all) and almost never put it on your roots—a recipe for flat hair. But you are often left with stiff, dry hair (the lesser of two evils). And for those with coarse hair, you might condition or co-wash more often than shampoo, since washing often can dry out your hair.

× The one product you should never put in your hair. On the surface, 2-in- 1 shampoo and conditioner seems to make logical sense: Why buy both shampoo and conditioner separately when you can condense them into one easy step, saving both time and money in the process?

Hair Highlights for Men Are Coming Back .
By Adam Hurly. I can live happily knowing that most late-90s trends will never (hopefully?) be back in style: JNCO jeans and puka-shell necklaces are still buried in a time capsule. I pray they stay there. I would have said the same for guys getting highlights—I'm picturing Chris Kirkpatrick and Nick Lachey with their immortally frosted tips. But recently I’ve been seeing subtle highlights on the runway and in editorial spreads and I have to say, I don't hate it. Most recently, Chris Evans graced the cover of L’Uomo Vogue sporting a barely-noticeable-yet-definitely-lightened layer on top of his naturally darker hair. He's not using highlights to stand out. He's using them to blend in, to add depth to his styles. “Everything we’re seeing now is understated, almost sun-soaked,” says Tyson Kennedy, co-owner of Cutler Salon in NYC. “Lately, guys prefer a more natural look, working with the hair’s traits instead of forcing anything against the color, texture, and flow.” Kennedy attributes the highlight resurgence to a ramping-down of recent hairstyle trends, like the gray and platinum hair dyeing, as well as all of the “classic, structured barbershop looks” that have dominated for the past few years. “For a while, everything was bold, and demanded attention,” he says. “We had slicked-back undercuts with shiny pomades and tight fades, lots of really strong looks.” Natural-looking highlights allow guys to loosen up, to relax.
