The Daily Mail reports that 45 percent of women had the most damaged hair in their twenties, and a third of women said they didn’t know which hair style looked best on them until around the age of 29.

Having said that, constantly changing styles and hair color can take its toll and, as we age, our hair density and condition can be affected.”

Sunglasses: it may seem counterintuitive to invest in a wintertime accessory traditionally viewed as a sunny, warm-weather item. But spring is on the way and we’re also currently being exposed to crazy amounts of UV rays—and then, of course, there’s the reflective snow situation.

Did anyone else hear wedding bells on the Oscars red carpet last night?
Then after the show, er, Oscars, it's the after party. Then after the party, it's the... Best Dressed List, of course. Nikki already picked her tops for the Academy Awards red carpet (did you vote yet?), so now it's time to see what the stars wore to the post-celebrations.
