Ted Gibson Salon. “There’s no reason why a woman can’t look beautiful with gray hair as long as she knows how to wear it.” Here’s how to rock the gray no matter when they show up.You may need to sit down for this one: Gray hair can creep up on a woman no matter if she’s young or old (Case in point: On Thursday, 37-year-old Angelina Jolie made an appearance in London with gray streaks in her tresses).

- Elise Solé, Shine Staff | Fashion + Beauty – Wed, Apr 10, 2013 2:28 PM EDTQuick—what do actress Michelle Williams and pop star Justin Bieber have in common? If you guessed beauty routines, you'd be right.
Recently, both stars stepped out with almost identical haircuts: Short, highlighted 'dos with side-swept bangs that flopped to the right. Williams debuted her new look on Tuesday at the New York City launch of Kate Young's Target collection. Bieber showcased his at a U.K. meet and greet with fans on Saturday—a bold move given that he lost 80,000 Twitter followers in 2011 when he chopped his classic shaggy mop into a bowl cut. They're only the latest in a string of celebs to join the cropped club. With the release of her 2009 album "Rated R", Rihanna rocked an orange version. And in August 2012, Miley Cyrus shocked fans by cutting her caramel locks into a platinum blonde modified "faux hawk."
Could the cut, an edgier version of the pixie, be a response to heartbreak? Around the same time they made the cut, three of these stars ended relationships (WilliamsRead More »from Michelle Williams and Justin Bieber Now Have the Same Haircut

Are we really ready to turn our bodies into billboards for a few extra bucks? Japanese advertisers are banking on it, offering women money in exchange for the use of their thighs. Participants paste temporary tattoos of brand logos on their legs and spend the day exposing them to oglers. To be eligible for ad space, you must be at least 18-years-old and connected to least 20 people on social networking sites.
