• Nicole Richie had a very adorable hairdo in L.A.'s hot weather this weekend at the Time for Heroes celebrity carnival. Really, the braids-bun combo is cute. If we had enough energy in this heat spell, we’d try it. [Girls in the Beauty Department/Glamour]

• Beverly Hills–based hairstylist Christophe charges $500 for a haircut, but he wanted to mass-market his success. So he created a hair-care line that's cheaper than Kerastase at CVS. We love when they think of the broke people. [BellaSugar]

• Target retail domination is in full effect: Not only is the company partnering with designers like Botkier for the Target Go collections, now three makeup artists — Jemma Kidd, Napoleon Perdis, and Pixi's Petra Strand — are creating their own diffusion lines for the chain. [WWD]

• Sadly, the price of your makeup is probably going up. Suppliers like Dow Chemical Co. are raising ingredient prices by 20 percent. [Cosmetic News]

• One tester said the anti-aging M Lab skin-care line that promises to reduce wrinkles actually reduces wrinkles. Whoda thunk? The Anti-Aging Treatment Serum supposedly works immediately to tighten lines. It costs just $275 a bottle. [Specktra Net]

• Though it’s not unsafe to remedy under-eye bags with the hemorrhoid cream Preparation H once in a while, it’s not something you should do all the time. You’re better off eating a banana to boost potassium, which naturally squeezes out extra eye fluids. [Derm Blog]
