Beauty Buzz: Elizabeth Olsen Bags a Bob, Jin Soon Gets Goopy, and Abercrombie & Fitch Spreads Its Scent



Elizabeth Olsen is closing out 2014 with its signature haircut: the bob. Leave it to the Olsen’s resident mane maestro Mark Townsend to snip her strands to perfection, snapping plenty of picture of the results on Instagram. “Chop chop,” he captioned the shot. “New hairdo! #DreamTexture #MarkEyeView.” We have to say we dig the new ‘do!

Gwyneth Paltrow is ensuring you look and feel good from tip to toe by partnering with Jin Soon Choi on two chic nail collections priced at $48 for each three-polish set for Goop. The first includes a trio of nudes while the second features a range of reds – all featuring a vegan friendly five-free formula, making it a must have for any green goddess. [Glamour]

That signature scent of Abercrombie & Fitch will be wafting beyond its doors with a new licensing deal with Inter Parfums Inc. Expect to find new fragrances from both A&F and Hollister to hit store shelves overseas, including Europe and Asia. As Jonathan Ramsden, chief operating officer of A&F explained, “We already have established a successful fragrance business, and believe that, with Inter Parfums as our partner, we can leverage this into a much larger global opportunity.” [WWD]

With 2014 approaching its close, the data is pouring in on what the biggest buys in beauty were. Since fragrance is sure to be on everyone shopping list, be sure to double check the stock on scents like Tom Ford’s Black Orchid, Jo Malone London English Pear & Freesia, Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb, Tory Birch Eau de Parfum, and Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black and Nirvana White. It’s no surprise that Nirvana snagged the top spot, as it was also a winner in our own Beauty 100 awards. Congrats to the Olsens! [Elle]
