We’re always looking out for the newest hair trends, and the next big one may be…no hair? That’s right, buzz cuts may be a major fall and winter trend, as shown by Gisele‘s Balenciaga fall campaign or Olivia Cooke at Comic-Con. While we can’t deny these ladies look fierce, it is certainly not a hairstyle for the weak of heart. [New York Times]

Subscription boxes just got a whole lot more meaningful. Treatmint Box is a subscription box service for men and women battling cancer, and its contents include inspirational note cards, organic beauty and skincare products, nourishing foods, and accessories with uplifting messages. The creator of the box, Kimberly Fink said, “Keeping your mind in a good place is half of the battle, and I think people benefit from visual reminders of their own strength.” It is certainly a beautiful way to show support for cancer treatment.

Getting two things done at once always sounds better. According to scientists at University of New Mexico and Los Alamos National Labs, we’ll be able to do exactly that with straighteners that can dye your hair. How crazy? This ion beam technology uses no chemicals and permanently changes hair color by affecting the way light reflects on hair follicles. While the word “permanent” sounds a bit scary for now, we are looking forward to these fascinating straighteners. Ombré, anyone? [Fashion Telegraph]

You might want to toss that loofah you use to scrub yourself clean in the shower. As it turns out, it may not actually get you clean at all. Scientists found that natural loofahs, when not properly washed and dried, can be prime spots for bacteria growth. Yuck! [Huffington Post]
