Way beyond a trim

If you've ever seen Clueless, Mean GirlsJawbreaker, or just about any other classic teen movie, you're familiar with the transformative power of a drastic makeover. And after spending months indoors and hiding under parkas, beanies, and blankets, it seems as if there's nothing like one to renew our spirit and get us excited for the warm months ahead. Since taking our trusty old shorts and tank tops out of storage already makes it feel like we have an entirely new wardrobe at our disposal, we're huge proponents of the hair makeover as the means to a fresh start.

Last year, we opted for cropped cuts, colorful tresses, and a whole lot of bleach. This time around, we decided to rethink our approach, and really evaluate the health of our hair. Whether it meant opting for more natural shades, choosing more low-maintenance options, or trying some new reparative treatments, we got some of the freshest cuts and colors of the season. That didn't mean that we totally laid off the bleach, though. After all, habits are hard to break (especially when they look really, really good). 

Flip through four of our favorite makeovers below, complete with maintenance tips, and all of the information you'd need if you so choose to replicate them yourself.

I've been red, green, blue, blonde, pink, and now purple. But thanks to Jeanise Aviles at West Village boutique salon Seagull, I didn't just get one shade—I got the most magical violet variation imaginable. (I should probably preface this by saying that Aviles, who herself rocks a hair color similar to perfectly faded denim, is not simply a stylist or colorist; she is a visionary. She sees your personality—even through your head-to-toe black ensemble—and matches your hair accordingly.)

After a consultation, wherein we agreed to go for purple and lavender shades, Aviles bleached my hair twice to get a perfect, pure platinum base. In the past, every colorist I've asked to bleach my hair has told me that the damage would be too extensive to keep my long hair, which I've spent years growing out. But thanks to new products like Olaplex, which repairs broken disulfite bonds in hair, my locks are still healthy. To remove the remaining yellow, she added a cooling toner. At that point, I looked like Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones. It was awesome.

She then mixed several shades of purple—some with more hints of blue, some truer purples, and some in-betweens—and painted on the shades using foils. After all the foils were applied, she painted the rest of my hair with a light lavender. It took about 20 minutes for the color to set, and once it was rinsed and blow-dried, I was left with platinum roots and an alluring shade of purple. Within minutes of leaving the salon, strangers stopped me on the street to compliment my hair. 

To maintain a non-traditional color, I have been washing my hair less and using a color-safe shampoo and conditioner. (And, yes, dry shampoo is my new best friend.)

Premiering today via NYLON

Small Talks, aka Cayley Spivey, has come a long way since starting a band, then becoming the entire band herself and forging her own fan base from the ground up. On her recent album A Conversation Between Us, she began to unpack any lingering baggage with one particular song: "Teeth." Today, she premieres the accompanying music video exclusively via NYLON.

"'Teeth' is about my personal battle with letting go of the past," Spivey tells NYLON, admitting that it's easily her favorite song off of A Conversation Between Us.

Watch the video for "Teeth" below.

Must have been pretty awkward

Taylor Swift and Sophie Turner were guests on the U.K.'s The Graham Norton Show together, which must have been awkward for Turner's husband, Joe Jonas, seeing as he also happens to be Swift's ex. I wonder if his name came up?

The interview doesn't come out until Friday night, but promotional photos show the two sharing a couch. Swift is making an appearance to perform her new single, "ME!" while Turner is promoting her new film, X- Men: Dark Phoenix. But it seems necessary for the two to be asked about Jonas.

Swift was just on the Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this month, where she brought up the fact that she felt bad for putting Jonas "on blast" on DeGeneres' show back in 2008 by telling the audience that he broke up with her in a record-setting short phone call. But, according to Swift, she and Jonas are chill now, since it happened pretty long ago, which means she's probably already hung out with Turner and maybe even gossiped about him with her.

We can only hope that they get the chance to spill some tea on television.

"That's! His! Auntie!"

Leslie Jones has rewatched the Game of Thrones finale with a beer in hand, Seth Meyers at her side, and a full camera crew ready to take in all her glorious reactions. Spoilers ahead, but, if you haven't watched last week's episode already, that's kind of on you at this point.

When Jon Snow started to make out with Daenerys, also known as his aunt, only to stab her through the chest moments later, it was emotional whiplash for everyone watching. And, Jones' reactions—both from her first and second viewing—sum it all perfectly.

"That's! His! Auntie! [gagging noises]," Jones says before making an aside about calling the police if her uncle ever tried to do the same. But then the knife goes in, and Jones screams. "Did you see that?!" Jones asks, "Yeah bitch, that's a knife in you." Meyers points out the funniest part of all: "Why are you so upset about someone kissing their aunt but totally fine with someone killing their aunt?" Jones replies, "Because that bitch needed to go," and, well, same.

Other highlights from the comedians' rewatch include comparing Dany's victory speech to a bad improv gig, predicting that their dogs would have less of a reaction to their deaths than Drogon did to his mother's, and more.

Watch all of Jones' reactions from this Late Night clip below.

These lyrics are a lot

Robbie Tripp, aka Curvy Wife Guy, is back with a music video, titled "Chubby Sexy," starring his wife and a trio of models. In it, Tripp raps about his bold choice to find women with an average body size attractive.

The video begins with a series of statements laid over some pool water: "Curves are the new high fashion," "Chubby is the new sexy," "We Out Here." Tripp posits that these queens deserve an anthem, which they do. What they do not deserve is this Cursed Song. As he lists all the names he knows to call them by (thick, thicc, and BBW), one model (who I really, really hope was paid well) squirts some lotion down her cleavage, and Tripp begins dancing.

"My girl chubby sexy/ Call her bonita gordita," Tripp states in his chorus, before going on to compare "big booty meat" to the peach emoji. Another thing he mentions is that his wife can't find a belt that fits her waist, and that's why he calls her James and the Giant Peach. He then tries to dab. Here are some of the other Cursed highlights from his, uh, verses:

Got those Khaleesi curves/ Knows how to dragon slay
She like a dude that's woke/ We like a girl that's weighty
Some say a chubby girl that's risky/ But they ain't met a curvy girl that's frisky
Imma dunk that donk like I'm Andrew Wiggins.
Thick like an Amazon/ Built like Big Ben.

Tripp says one thing in the video that I couldn't agree more with: "She don't need a man." No, she does not. Please run. If you must, watch the entire video, below. Or send it to your nemesis!

See the promo here

It was bound to happen. The Kadashians and Jenners have committed themselves to letting the cameras roll on their lives, for better or for worse. So if you thought that the Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson cheating scandal was off limits, you thought wrong. The trailer for Sunday's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians was just released, and it involves the famous family working through the fallout of what happened when Woods went to a party at Thompson's house.

The teaser includes the infamous clip of Khloé Kardashian screaming "LIAAAARRRRRR." It's still not explicitly clear who prompted that strong response. She could be responding to Thompson, who clearly isn't always honest. Or she could be reacting to Woods account of the events on Red Table Talk. But the most revealing moment comes when we see Kylie Jenner—who was Woods' best friend before all of this happened—react for the first time.

In a heart-to-heart conversation, momager Kris Jenner says, "For you and Jordyn, it's like a divorce." Kylie only offers this in response: "She fucked up." Based on Woods' version of events—which I'm inclined to believeThompson is the one who fucked up. Still, I'm hoping for some kind of reconciliation between the two longtime friends. Perhaps we'll have to wait until next season for that.

Check out the promo video below.
