Beauty Buzz: Jared Leto Sheds His Strands, Temporary Tats Take Over the Runway and Disney Fans Covet Cinderella Cosmetics



Beauty buffs and Jared Leto fans are in mourning for the actor’s mane. The Thrity Seconds to Mars frontman shaved his beard and bid goodbye to his manbun to prep for his role as The Joker in the upcoming film, Suicide Squad. David Ayers shared a snap of the process, but it looked like Leto was just as sad as the rest of us, as he tweeted that he already misses his beard. Hopefully, his luxurious locks will make a quick return; we’ll keep our fingers crossed. [The Huffington Post]

From Flash to jaguar gel and beyond, temporary tats are the haute new beauty accessory that have moved from our ankles and wrists to our faces, thanks to Fashion Week. Though it first appeared on Tommy Hilfiger’s Spring 2015 runway, temporary tattoo stars (à la Valfre’s cast of characters) and symbols dusted across the cheeks of models on the Giamba runway. We can already see stars popping up in place of beauty marks come festival season. [Glamour]

Disney fans are some of the most die-hard, which put their money where their makeup is, well for Cinderella anyway.

Never fret; more Cinderella stock is slated to hit stores March 5 with plenty of time to play with before the movie’s March 13 release. [WWD]

In other male mane news, Shia LaBeouf is sporting a shocking hairstyle. The actor with a penchant for paper bags is the single star out to revive the braided rattail, as he was spotted out in L.A. over the weekend. Though he paired it with shorn sides, we can only hope this is for his upcoming role in Man Down. Mayday, mayday, mane down! [People]

Unilever has taken a beauty brand under its wing by acquiring Ren Skincare. The favorite of British babes and international beauty buffs is likely to experience serious growth, thanks to its motto of “performance; purity; pleasure.” As Vasiliki Petrou, Unilever senior vice president of prestige brands, explained, “It is a brand with an incredibly loyal following, with a unique proposition that no doubt gives it potential for even further growth, especially given that the naturals category is one of the fastest-growing in skin care globally.” It looks like the sky not the limit here, but rather the starting point for the beauty brand.
