Red Carpet

PHOTOS: Stars wear black at the 2018 Golden Globes

The red carpet is awash with stars dressed in black at the 2018 Golden Globes in Los Angeles today.

Actresses and some some actors have used the colour of their gowns and suits to support the #metoo movement and make a statement about sexual harassment in Hollywood.

While they may all dressed in the same colour, there are still some fabulous and daring looks on the ruby rug.

Check out some of our favourite looks below:

Cindy Lou The Grinch Hairstyle

Christmas Tree Hair is the beauty trend of the festive season

Forget glitter beards, the beauty trend taking centerstage on social media this festive season is Christmas Tree Hair.

Inspired by Cindy-Lou Who from The Grinch, ladies (and gents) across the globe are styling their hair into a mini Christmas tree complete with decorations!

The look involves pulling long hair straight up into a triangular or cone shape, usually with the assistance of a water bottle or foam cone, and then using plenty of hairspray to keep it in the shape of a tree.

The hair can then be decorated with Christmas ornaments, tinsel and even electric lights!

Check out a tutorial below on how to create this look at home:

And here are some photos of the gravity defying hair trend:
