Burberry is bolstering its scent selection with two new flanker fragrances for its Brit Rhythm family in time for Valentine’s Day. Launching today, the Burberry Brit Rhythm – Eau de Toilette Intense for Men boasts notes of Artemisia, cumin seed, pepper oil, amber, leather, patchouli, rich cahmeran, guaiac wood, and tonka bean while the women’s Burberry Brit Rhythm – Floral Eau de Toilette for Women blends Sicilian lemon and orange, Egyptian jasmine, lotus blossom, dewy lilac, amber woods, driftwood, and musk.

Chic skin soothers Avène is ready to hit the surf and sand on our shores this season with two sun care ranges. Though the brand’s sunscreens have been musts for Europeans, FDA regulations had to be adhered to to debut stateside in March. The first range of sprays and lotions use a blend of avobenzone, homosalate, octisalate, and octocrylene for broadspectrum sun protection, while its mineral line for face and body use titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. But all are free of fragrance, parabens, and oil, and are hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and contain Vitamin E. This comes on the heels of Palmer’s announcing its first foray into sun care, with mega moisturizers for face and body with an SPF range from 15 to 45. Now there’s no excuse to slather on some sunscreen! [WWD]

We know that parents can have a rough time getting their little ones ready, especially when it comes to combing and styling their strands. One dad, Greg Wickherst, was stumped when it came to styling his daughter Izzy’s hair and decided to study it. As a an admissions representative at IntelliTec College, he was able to check out their cosmetology department to pick up a few tips and tricks with wonderful results he’s shared on Facebook. As he explained, “In no time, I was able to do a simple braid, then a fishbone braid, and a French braid. I learned how to do a ponytail, then flip it through itself either under or over. I call that an inverted ponytail.” [The Huffington Post]
