    How TikTok Is Making This Men’s Hairstyle a Trend Among Gen-Z

    Many mornings, in Los Angeles, Darrell Jones’s girlfriend helps him curl his hair. Running a flat iron over small sections that have been sprayed with heat protectant, she creates small ringlets, pinning them to his head to set. For a brief moment, he looks like he’s gearing up to be the envy of the 1930s. After the tendrils cool, Mr. Jones, 21, sets them with hair spray and runs his fingers through his locks. Across the country in Wilmington, N.C., Tristan Harrell, 17, creates a similar look with a somewhat modified routine. Mr. Harrell starts with wet hair and

    Party tights: one of fashion’s favourite trends is making a comeback | Tights and socks

    Little could we have guessed that when Adele announced her return to the charts this autumn that she would be bringing back one of fashion’s favourite trends with her – party tights. In the singer’s international Vogue shoot styled by editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, the star is pictured wearing not one, but two pairs of jazzy hosiery: a polka-dot and fishnet double whammy. While the Easy On Me singer has marked the return of the cyclical trend, party tights – unofficially classed as anything other than your typical 40 denier – have already had the recent endorsement of some heavyweight fashion

    Kataluna Enriquez has always loved creating things. “At a young age, I was unable to play with the toys I wanted,” Enriquez said. “I remember walking up to my sister’s room so I could play with her dolls. I would cut up my socks and turn them into dresses.” On Sunday night, Enriquez was wearing one of her own creations — a rainbow-colored sequin dress — when she was crowned Miss Nevada, making history as the first transgender woman to do so.  Enriquez, who immigrated from the Philippines with her family at the age of 10, now owns her own

    Meet the Moroccan women making Argan oil for the beauty industry

    TAROUDANT, Morocco, June 15 (Reuters) – In the arid mountains of southern Morocco, local women harvest argan oil, a natural product they have long used in cooking but which has become highly prized by the global beauty industry as an anti-aging skin treatment and restorative for hair.

For centuries the oil, among the most expensive in the world, has been extracted by drying argan fruit in

    I’m making a fashion statement without being fashionable

    The BDN Opinion section operates independently and does not set newsroom policies or contribute to reporting or editing articles elsewhere in the newspaper or on bangordailynews.com. Eddie Adelman of Belfast is a writer. Rumor has it that clothes make the man. For some reason, I never got that memo. I must have been out of the office that day.

A fashion statement to me is wearing the first shirt that I pull out of the
