Oprah Winfrey is an Oscar-nominated actress, activist, magazine editor, producer, book club sponsor, radio host…and now, hairdresser?
“It’s taken months to get to this moment,” Winfrey said. “It involves a two-time Academy Award winner, a sharp object, and me.”
The media mogul cut nine inches off Hillary Swank’s hair, as part of a charity effort airing tomorrow on her talk show. Swank’s hair will be donated to Pantene Beautiful Lengths – a campaign that encourages people to grow, cut, and donate their hair to create real-hair wigs for women who’ve lost their hair due to cancer.
“I’ve been growing it for the last six months to donate my hair,” Swank says. “I’ve been taking a lot of vitamins and taking really good care of it, knowing that it would go to a woman in need.”
Also as part of Oprah’s Great American Haircut show, 100 viewers received makeovers in one hour.
From People.com: Sexy sailor Lauren Conrad reports for duty at L.A. hot spot Les Deux, where she joined her Hills pal Audrina Partridge for a Hpnotiq-sponsored Halloween party on Tuesday.
Spoiled Pretty’s take: It’s a little spooky how much L.C. looks like Marcia Brady, right? Maybe that should have been her costume, instead of this shipwreck of an outfit.
As the days get shorter and the weather colder, most women opt to go darker – with their hair, cosmetics, and wardrobe. Christina Ricci isn’t most women. Just in time for Halloween, the actress traded in her signature goth style for a lighter, brighter look at a Louis Vuitton event in Los Angeles.
What do you think of Christina’s new do? Is it a keeper? Or should she go, as Amy Winehouse puts it, back to black?

I’m a ponytail girl. If you pass me on the street, nine times out of ten, I’m wearing my hair pulled back. Don’t get me wrong, I love hair styling products and I get compliments every time I wear my hair down – but when it comes to my mane, I subscribe to Murphy’s Law.
Pulling my hair back gives me peace of mind – that when I pass a pane of glass or check myself out in a mirror, I will not be horrified by the reflection staring back at me.
When it comes time to tame my mane into a sleek into a pony or bun, my weapons of choice are Scunci No Damage Poly Bands. They keep my hair in place all day – and when it’s time to let my hair down, these hair elastics glide off without pulling or tugging.
Available in two colors (black for those with darker hair, clear for those with lighter hair), they’re virtually undetectable. And for less than $3.50 for a pack of 75, the price can’t be beat.
Want something for nothing? Well, you’ve come to the right place. I am so excited to announce Spoiled Pretty’s latest giveaway – generously sponsored by Face Boutique!!!

MAC has tapped Stacy ‘Fergie’ Ferguson, the Grammy Award-winning singer, as the next Viva Glam spokeswoman.
The chanteuse is the latest in a long line of Viva Glam celebrity spokeswomen – which include Eve, Dita von Teese, Mary J. Blige, Missy ‘Misdemeanor’ Elliott, and Pamela Anderson. The deal includes an ad campaign featuring Ferguson, which breaks in February, as well as a new limited edition MAC Viva Glam Lipglass.
In 1994, MAC introdued Viva Glam, an outspoken deep red that was universal in its appeal and glamour. Since then, the MAC Viva Glam campaign has raised more than $95 million dollars to benefit the MAC AIDS Fund, which supports people living with HIV/AIDS globally.
Jennifer Lopez, and her rumored unborn twins, have been very busy lately. To promote her sixth studio album, Brave, Lopez has appeared on Good Morning America, The Late Show with David Letterman – and most recently, Dancing With The Stars.
But Jenny from the block isn’t satisfied with conquering the radio and small screen. She’s also on newsstands now – showing off her pregnancy glow on the November issue of Allure.
For Lopez’s Allure cover look – dramatic false eyelashes, dewy skin, and glossy nude lips – her longtime makeup artist Scott Barnes drew inspiration from 1960s model Marisa Berenson. “I understand Jennifer’s face so well I could do it in the dark. I have,” he says. “She’s my muse beyond a shadow of a doubt.”
Recreating JLo’s makeup is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
1. Fill out the upper and lower lashlines with clusters of false lashes; they give a more natural effect than full lashes. Swipe a stroke of black liquid liner along both lids to camouflage the falsies. Brush black mascara on the top and bottom lashes.
2. Fill in the lips with a pale, nude pencil.
3. Add a layer of shimmery, clear lip gloss. Makeup artist Scott Barnes always uses his fingertips to apply the maximum amount.
