Makeup artist and beauty blogger Charity Grace LeBlanc is facing criticism over her 3-year-old daughter's curly pink hair.
Plain and simple: Hair is just hair. No matter how many bad hair cuts we get or shaving mishaps we endure, hair will never be the end-all be-all mark of true beauty. And that's exactly what a young girl named Riley learned in a video posted to the Love What Matters' Facebook page this week. Riley has Alopecia, an auto-immune disease that causes hair loss in people of all ages and genders. But, as she came to discover in this video, her hair loss should not (and does not) define her beauty.

China is well known as the home of the rented boyfriends and rented bridesmaids, but now stand-in parents are offering their services, for when you just can’t abide teachers – or lovers – meeting the real ones. Offering stand-in help for anything from a tricky school parents’ evening to that awkward first encounter between the new girlfriend and mum and dad, fake parents believe they can ward off potential social catastrophes – temporarily at least. “Do you have a boyfriend or girlfriend who wants to meet your parents but you actually don’t want them to meet?” asks one advert on the Chinese Internet. The Global Times newspaper, which said the service is usually charged at 50 yuan (£5.60) an hour - spoke to a rent-a-parent who takes his "profession" very seriously indeed. "I study psychology," the fake dad told the newspaper. “No matter how nasty your teacher gets, I won't get angry.” Young Chinese who are seeking fake parents are also posting on the Chinese web. "A rented parent is needed,” said one comment. “Just need to make a phone call to my teacher." Another asked: "Is there anyone in Shanghai who can be rented as parents to have a meal with my girlfriend?" China is experiencing massive social changes, but most people are still deeply conservative. Many marriages are arranged – even in the modern cities – and parents are often involved in their children’s relationships from an early stage. It is unclear how many of the postings relating to ‘rented parents’ are people authentically seeking help, but China has a booming trade in renting people for a range of ‘personal’ services. Boyfriends and girlfriends are rented over the New Year holiday period by singletons who want to put a stop to intrusive questions from parents. Bridesmaids are also for hire in China, where wedding’s can often get out of hand and bridesmaids can be subjected to sexual harassment and physical abuse. Chinese media also reported this week the growing trend of people using ‘rent me’ apps to offer themselves as friends. Additional reporting by Christine Wei

Harley Street nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert believes the article has the potential to be “extremely damaging” and have negative impacts on both the mental and physical health of readers. “Firstly it is important to note that fast ‘weight loss’ is often not body fat but the number on the scales shifting, often from water weight, which is why I always advocate a healthy balanced approach over time to losing actually body fat as weight,” Lambert explained to The Independent.

Unfortunately for many breastfeeding moms, being asked to "cover up" or "do that somewhere more private" is an all-too-often occurrence, but for one mom who faced one of these statements in her own mother's house, the shaming felt more personal than ever. The mom of three, who left her mom's dining table during a meal to help her 3-week-old daughter latch in the living room before returning to the table to continue eating while nursing, was met with a dirty look from her mother and a request to get a blanket to cover her baby.
Pink has spent her entire career challenging the conforming restrictions of gender norms - and it's a viewpoint she's keen to pass on to her children.
