Watch this hairstylist reveal his trendy hair-dying technique — and honestly, we can't look away.
So you're on your natural hair growth journey but somewhere along the line you began to feel like your growth has become stagnant. Join the club. Frustrating as it is, it's normal (and common) for people to spend years growing out their hair and still end up not achieving their desired lengths. It's easy to chalk this up to your hair just not being able to grow past a certain length, but sometimes it's not that your hair isn't growing, but that you're just not able to retain said growth because of a few other factors at play. To get a little more insight on this, we spoke to natural hair growth guru and owner of Her Growing Hands, Whitney Eaddy, about which hair-care habits are preventing you from retaining length.

For years, I fought against getting my Black hair done in the way I wear it now -- sisterlocks. But opening up to a new style meant owning my Blackness.
Wide-ribbed tank tops have been everywhere this year and remain at the top of my shopping list for various reasons. They looks somewhat like loungewear (and I'm all for being casual!), and the inherently thin fabric makes them perfect for tucking into high-waisted pants. Plus, ribbed texture always exudes a little '90s nostalgia. Once I spotted this Fitted Rib-Knit Henley Tank ($8) in tie-dye print, I knew I'd be adding another top to my wardrobe. When it arrived I immediately tried it on with my favorite mom jeans and the fit was perfect. The tank is soft and flattering without being too tight - some ribbed tanks can feel too restricting, as though I'm wearing a sports bra. It comes in two other tie-dye shades, so can you blame me for stocking up? Related: 13 Editor-Tested Products From Old Navy We're Happy We Bought; Just Read Our Reviews

Summer is great for a lot of things - bright makeup trends, new skin-care products, fresh hairstyles - but there are a few things in the beauty space that are better left for the colder months. As the weather heats up and we're in the sun more, there are a few beauty rules and best practices to follow, especially when it comes to beauty treatments you should and shouldn't get in the summertime. While things like spray tans, dyeing your hair, and getting Botox go together with the warmer months just fine, certain beauty treatments - like those involving lasers - do not. Instead, these trips to the dermatologist or salon are best saved for the fall. If you're not sure what treatments are safe to get during the upcoming season, we tapped a few experts to go over the dos and don'ts of summer cosmetic procedures and skin-care treatments.

Between waxing, sugaring, shaving, threading, and laser treatments, there's certainly no shortage of ways to temporarily (or permanently) remove body hair, if that's your preference. However, there's one lesser-known method that's poised to make a major comeback as we continue to make do with at-home beauty treatments: epilation. Like voluminous hair and fuchsia lipstick, epilators were big in the '80s. With longer-lasting results than razors, the hair removal method quickly appealed to people who were over ingrown hairs and pesky stubble. However, the rumors you've heard about it — mainly, that it hurts like a mother, especially the first time — are, based on my own experience as a longtime epilator, mostly true. Epilators look like handheld whirling blades of death (I myself have demonstrated it over Zoom to the shock of my coworkers), but they basically worked as mechanized tweezers that move quickly to pull out unwanted hair on the face or body as you pass the device over your skin. However, similar to waxing, the more you do it, the less regrowth you'll see over time. Ready to give one a spin? Ahead, seven devices to consider trying.

When Harry Styles prepared for his performance on NBC's Today back in February, he wore a multicolor patchwork crochet cardigan from JW Anderson (originally $1,890), not at all unlike Dua Lipa's loungewear shorts of choice. Are you sensing a groovy, '70s-inspired trend? Eagle-eyed fans were perhaps more into Harry's chill dress-rehearsal look than the peach blazer and polka-dot tie he performed in. Harry styled the Spring/Summer 2020 runway item with Gucci jeans, a graphic tee, a pearl necklace, and his signature fistful of chunky rings. He looked great, that's for sure. So we don't blame TikTok users for trying to re-create the fashion moment as a stay-home activity these past few months. Now, JW Anderson is releasing the pattern to the public - a little DIY made easy . . . or easier. "I am so impressed and incredibly humbled by this trend and everyone knitting the cardigan. I really wanted to show our appreciation so we are sharing the pattern with everyone. Keep it up!" Jonathan wrote on Instagram, directing followers to an email address on his website where you can write in to request a PDF of the pattern. Scroll through to reminisce about the fashion moment du jour that TikTok-ers seem to have on their minds, then see some of our favorite remakes of the sweater thus far. Not into DIY? We rounded up some similar, more affordable versions of the sold-out colorblock cardigan so you can still get in on Harry's look.

There's a lot that goes into figuring out your curl type, which is why it can be a little confusing to do. Your hair type and curl pattern are ways for you to describe the natural shape of your hair strands as they grow out of your head. Hair types are broken down into four categories (Type 1 to 4) and then further separated into three subcategories for each type (1A, 1B, 1C, etc.), ending with 12 categories total. It sounds easy, but the tricky part is determining which one your hair falls into since many of the subcategories have similar appearances, not to mention that it's possible (and very common) for a person to have more than one curl pattern. Still, if you've looked at all the diagrams and want a general idea of what each hair type looks like, read ahead as we take you through a few examples courtesy of some of your favorite celebrities as your guide.
