"The Thread" just can't stop talking about this summer's hottest hairstyle: tousled tresses. And I guess I can understand why. Everyone is sporting them, from Angelina Jolie to Jennifer Aniston! Earlier in the season, "The Thread" demonstrated how easy it is to achieve the laid-back look, but Lauren, a loyal viewer, wrote in and said she couldn't seem to master the technique. Watch as "The Thread's" Sarah Bernard makes an emergency hairstyle house call:
Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) is a vampire with a great head of hair! - Summit EntertainmentRaise your hand if you stopped getting your hair highlighted once the economy tanked. I know I did. In fact, you could track the length of the recession by measuring how much my color has grown out on my head.
What are color-happy recessionistas to do, then? Forgo Starbucks and save thousands, four dollars at a time, so you can keep your color each year? Doubtful.
The color chief and co-owner of the Gavert Atelier salon in Beverly Hills, Stuart Gavert, has a solution to make color grow out in an economic fashion: Twilights.
Twilights are like normal highlights; they're just strategically placed to optimize grow-out time. Instead of hitting the salon again a month or so after the first color, you go once a quarter and no one is the wiser.
But, why the oh-so-clever moniker? It turns out the technique is the same one used on Robert Pattinson's head in the "Twilight" movie. Gavert should know -- he's the man who gave the year's most famous vampire his signature color for the first movie.Read More »from Get Robert Pattinson’s Hair ‘Twilights’
Justin Timberlake reveals some of his beauty secrets in Allure . - Bryan Bedder/Getty ImagesJustin Timberlake is the face of Givenchy's new male fragrance, Play. The sexy singer spoke to Allure about the cologne, which he says has a "citrusy and fresh" scent, and shared a few of his personal grooming tips as well:
What was the first scent you wore?
"Polo. It was a big deal for '80s kids."
How long does it take you to get ready?
"Not too long. A half-hour, tops."
What about your curly hair?
"My secret for my hair is that I don't wash it. I shampoo it once every ten days or so. It's more manageable with the natural oil."
How do you get that perfect stubble?
"I just use a trimmer. If I keep it at a certain length, I get fewer complaints about how it feels against the cheek."
What scents do you like on women?
"I'm the quintessential male. They did a study on what men really like to smell on women, and they responded to things like pumpkin pie and vanilla way more than a bouquet of flowers."

Ryan Kwanten spent most of his time partially naked during season one of HBO's "True Blood" as Jason Stackhouse.
