Posted by Simon Pinder on Sunday, March 31, 2013, In : News

David claims that his father's animosity started followi...

I'm not sure what's happening in 2013 but I like it!

Kerry Katona tweeted this picture yesterday after dying her hair a pastel blue, asking her followers if they liked it, but before anybody could give much of a reply she was bouncing of the walls, saying she felt 'supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' and that she wanted to bounce on a trampoline before peeing her pants.

But Kerry wasn't the only girl feeling a cool hue. On the same day, Isabella Cruise (daughter of Tom and Nicole), tweeted her ...

It's one of the hottest runway trends of 2013. ELLEUK.COM declares it 'back'. But what is dual-texture hair and will it actually catch on?

For the most part, this look combines sleek or wet-effect roots with drier, more textured lengths.

Nick Irwin and the TIGI artistic team used gel and hairspray separately and secured the look with grips to emphasise t...

The Dove Ad That's Alerting The PC Police

Posted by Simon Pinder on Thursday, March 21, 2013, In : Products 

A new French TV ad for Dove Men+Care shampoo is currently the talking point of a few newsfeeds and blogs, and may be under investigation for being 'sexist'.

The advert depicts two chaps at the office, one of whom has suddenly and unwittingly adorned himself with long glossy locks.
