Neat + Tidy Top Knot Is Hot Hair Trend: Just Look at AMAs 2015!

Wow....Talk about a HOT hair trend. If you tuned into the 2015 American Music Awards last evening hosted by the very talented Jennifer Lopez, then you saw this super cute hair do ALL over the place.

We're talking about the TOP KNOT. So-ooooo ladylike + sophisticated.

Take a peek:

And Kendall Jenner wore the hair trend with some sexy fringe.

Plus, AMA winner Ariana Grande sporting a wavy top knot.

This feminine, polished up-do has been wild at the runways and worn by celebs at every age. Here are Lily Rose Depp + Julianne Moore looking neat + tidy in top knots.

Try adding some dry shampoo spray to locks BEFORE creating your cute top knot. It will give a bit of extra grip + volume to hair, so tresses aren't slippery when gathering into the bun

We like this one, only $4.79 at Target .

Gigi Hadid Debuts Super Cute Bob At 2015 AMA Awards But Hints It's Not A Cut?!

We LOVE Gigi Hadid's adorable BOB cut she just premiered this evening at the 2015 American Music Awards.

Her pure white cut-out dress is SO SEXY, we're NOT sure if  ANYONE were even looking at her new hair style.  Her size 4 model body is killer! She looks healthy skinny more than the mass of runway girls.

During her interview with E!'s Giuliana Rancic  pre-show, Gigi hinted that the cut might not be real. "You'll have to check back tomorrow to see if it's really short," Gigi said. "There are tricks of the trade."

We're NOT sure if the hair were tucked under somehow. Either way, Gigi looked FAB on the red carpet.

To keep the sleekness of your bob style, try John Frieda Frizz-Ease Expert Finish Polishing Serum ($6.59 + free shipping).

Hello, Adele! Gorgeous Cat Eye Makeup People Can't Stop Talking About

Wow! The BUZZ continues about this superstar's amazing new look.

Now that's a stunning album cover.........HELLO, Adele!

We LOVE Adele's 1960s type heavy eyeliner.

To COPY these gorgeous, lined eyes, you will create an ultra-thick line on your upper lids.

To achieve this liquid drama, you need black liquid liner. And you CAN use a cheap liner.

We adore Wet n Wild H2O Proof Liquid Liner ($3.93, at Walmart). Super beauty budget buy!

Add layers of black mascara or a few faux fringe, and you're GOOD to go!

Will you rock the Adele cat eye, ladies?

Glycolic Acid's Smallest Molecule Benefits Skin Better Than Rest Of AHAs

Beautiful skin is NOT a given, at least for the vast majority of us.

Repairing and rejuvenating our complexions takes a lot of smart thinking, proper skin care products and a routine you stick by.

There are proven prescription fixers like retin-A, hydroquinone and others. But there are also great over-the-counter choices like Vitamin C serum, chemical peels, retinol and tons of other products.

Today, we are looking at the KING of the AHAs or alpha hydroxy acids, because these little guys mean serious business.

Glycolic acid happens to contain the smallest molecular structure of ALL the AHAs, which means that it can penetrate the greatest into the skin and do the most valuable complexion repair.

Glycolic acid is most commonly known for use as a popular chemical peel but it can also be made into a strong cream base for nightly application.


At first, this acid can cause redness and irritation, but if you proceed SLOWLY, you will REAP all these incredible benefits.

Here's a powerful glycolic acid cream at 20% by Glycolix Elite Facial Cream ($32.40).

Here's to BETTER skin while you SLEEP.

Christie Brinkley Almost 62: Believes In Conservative "Filling" + Other Cosmetic Things

Yup.....The golden beauty turns 62 in February.

Yup.....Just want to HATE her, but Christie Brinkley appears so likable that we adore her, too.

Here's the iconic model at a book signing in Long Island Friday peddling her new beauty tome, Timeless Beauty.


Has Christie Brinkley had ANY cosmetic enhancements?

DUH.....Of course, but in her defense there is ZERO over-done here, like the silly, huge fake lips we often see today on celebrities.

She has hit the gene pool as they say, but in her new book, the famous model believes in dermal stuff like fillers + Botox  as long as you have it done with a light hand:

"I have used fillers in super-tiny doses, and just like make-up, the best ones are imperceptible.....

"Used well, they can give the overall face a lift and also diminish fine lines. I’ve used them on an indentation on my forehead – the legacy of a playground accident – and also on marionette lines around my mouth. But you must use a very small amount because over-filling removes contours and gives you a flat face."

We admire her honesty + intelligence on the topic.  Looks like a good beauty read.
