28-year-old gets a hot "I'm single!" makeover
This newly single woman longed for a big change.
Glamour gives 28-Year-Old Christina Gibson a hot new makeover.
Finally over a breakup, Cristina Gibson needed a new look she loved. Celeb stylist Mark Townsend took her shorter, blonder, better.
Like so many women before her, Cristina Gibson, 28, longed for a big change after her relationship ended. “I wanted something more sophisticated,” she says. Dove stylist Mark Townsend felt all that length elongated her face, so he cut eight inches and gave her sideswept bangs (styled with just a scrunch of Dove Style+Care Nourishing Amplifier mousse, $4, drugstore.com).

You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable.
