Nicole Kidman's Hairstyles

The difference between looking fresh and youthful or older than you are can be as simple as the state of your bangs or the shade of your highlights. Don't believe it? Check out this celebrity proof—and pick up a few tricks, too.

Nicole Kidman

Older (left): Sometimes curls signify youth—Shirley Temple, Honey Boo Boo—but too much volume on top with subtle curls at the ends is a bit more Golden Girls than Goldilocks.

Younger: By maintaining the volume up top yet making hair sleek, Kidman's look is still sophisticated without the country-club effect. Fekkai Glossing Cream depuffs hair and leaves it insanely glossy.

Emily Blunt's Hairstyles

Emily Blunt

Older (left): Over-lightening hair, especially to an ashy blonde, can make you look a bit drawn.

Younger: The rich chocolate brown is vibrant, fresh, and warms up her milky complexion. Keep your color vibrant with Garnier Fructis Color Shield Fortifying Shampoo

Anne Hathaway

Older (left): Granted, growing out short hair is hard. But still, the harsh geometric lines emphasized by the volume are aging.

Younger: Hathaway's gamine crop—and long false lashes—look stunning, feminine, and young. Add texture and definition with Aveda Control Paste.

Zoe Saldana's Hairstyles

Zoe Saldana

Older (left): Long, stick-straight hair is severe and looks overworked.

Younger: Loosening things up with a gentle wave and adding some body at the roots makes hair look natural and softens the face. We love the Tigi Bed Head Curlipops 1" Tourmaline Ceramic Hourglass Styling Iron.


Meryl Streep Hairstyle

Meryl Streep

Older (left): Even the prettiest so-blonde-it's-almost-gray hair can be aging.

Younger: A simple single process can resuscitate hair, reflect light, and look really pretty.


Katherine Heigl Hairstyles

Katherine Heigl

Older (left): An allover-volume, sister-wife bouffant just doesn't work on anyone.

Younger: For a flattering updo that's young and feminine, keep the part undefined, the volume under control and focused in the back, and the pieces loose and random.

    • Trump administration suspends FHA mortgage premium rate cut

      (CNNMoney) The freshly-inaugurated Trump administration has halted a cut to the FHA mortgage insurance premium that Obama's team announced during his final days in office. The Department of Housing and Urban Development said Friday that the reduction to the annual mortgage insurance premiums borrowers pay when taking out government-backed home loans has been "suspended indefinitely." The cut, at a quarter of a percentage point, would have saved homeowners an average of $500 this year, according to the Federal Housing Administration. Borrowers with larger home loans would have seen an even bigger drop in their premium rate. The mortgage-fee reduction was originally announced January 9 and was

    • The Clinton Foundation Is Dead — But The Case Against Hillary Isn't

      While everyone's been gearing up for President Trump's inauguration, the Clinton Foundation made a major announcement this week that went by with almost no notice: For all intents and purposes, it's closing its doors. In a tax filing, the Clinton Global Initiative said it's firing 22 staffers and closing its offices, a result of the gusher of foreign money that kept the foundation afloat suddenly drying up after Hillary Clinton failed to win the presidency. It proves what we've said all along: The Clinton Foundation was little more than an influence-peddling scheme to enrich the Clintons, and had little if anything to do with "charity," either overseas or in the U.S. That sound you heard starting in November was checkbooks being snapped shut in offices around the world by people who had hoped their donations would buy access to the next president of the United States. There was a strong precedent for it in Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state.

    • Years later, a child witness fills in disturbing details in infamous Miami abuse case

      Six years ago, 10-year-old twins were discovered in horrifying condition in a pickup truck parked along Interstate 95 — the body of Nubia Barahona, a girl with an incandescent smile, was badly beaten, soaked in chemicals and decomposing inside a garbage bag in the truck bed; her brother Victor was in the cab, badly burned by chemicals. The appalling case rocked Florida’s child welfare agency, which had received numerous abuse complaints against Barahona and his wife, Carmen, but repeatedly left the children in the couple’s custody. The ongoing death-penalty case against the Barahonas has yet to be scheduled for trial, but prosecutors believe the couple starved and tortured the twins for months or more — a charge bolstered by a new and disturbing statement from the couple’s own granddaughter, who told investigators that she was so terrified of her own family that she waited for years to tell her story.

    • President Trump’s Inauguration Crowd Doesn’t Look Like Barack Obama’s Did in 2009

      A side-by-side comparison of the crowds at former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump‘s respective inaugurations reveals that Trump’s crowd isn’t as large as he boasted it would be. Two aerial photographs of the National Mall from the two historic days reveal large patches of white ground exposed during Trump’s ceremony, spaces crowds had filled during Obama’s 2009 inauguration. Federal and local agencies estimated 700,000 to 900,000 people would be in Washington, D.C. for Trump’s inauguration on Friday, roughly half the number of people who attended Obama’s first presidential inauguration.

    • The inauguration is over, but these Michelle Obama memes will still help you get through the day

      Michelle Obama is all of us today. Forced to attend Donald Trump's inauguration on her last official day as first lady, Obama, who is normally the picture of grace and elegance, let things slide a little. The result? Her facial expressions at the inauguration are everything. And thanks to the internet, we can all commiserate with FLOTUS on this awful day with all of the memes. First there's all her amazing side-eye, proving that FLOTUS is a little salty, even though she's been (mostly) hiding it for eight years for diplomacy's sake: Maybe the most awkward moment of the whole day: There's this face, which is honestly perfect for all of our feels today: After all that shade, here's a good reminder:
